Hemp and it’s products

What is hemp?
Nowadays, hemp is getting a lot of attention because of the benefits it provides to all of us. Hemp is a plant that belongs to the cannabaceae family. 

Hemp also known as Cannabis can be divided into three subcategories:
1. Cannabis sativa

2. Cannabis indica

3. Cannabis ruderalis

All these subspecies have different growth properties but they contain similar or identical properties. Hemp is a plant which is grown all over the world especially in the northern hemisphere and is known for its medicinal and nutritional properties. Its oil is a source of health-boosting properties. 

Hemp is usually mistaken with marijuana. These two plants are entirely different. Marijuana contains a high concentration of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which has psychoactive properties and on the other hand hemp contains small traces of THC.

Hemp seeds are also known as “hemp hearts”. These are small brown seeds that are rich in protein, soluble and insoluble fiber and healthy fatty acids such as omega-3 and omega-6.. They have antioxidant properties, improve heart health and reduce the symptoms of ailments related to skin and joints.
