Although Hemp and Cannabis come from a similar species of plant, they are very different and confusion has been caused by deliberate misinformation with far reaching effects on socioeconomics as well as on environmental matters. Hemp contains little to no THC, unlike it’s cannabis counterpart, meaning you can’t get “high” from it. The reason hemp is illegal is not because of any negative impact to the environment or human health, or even to prevent people from getting high from it (because you can’t), but exactly the opposite. It is so extremely environmentally friendly, nutritionally and medicinally beneficial, that it provides too many abundant resources which would make it impossible for powerful corporations to compete with it. It could literally replace almost every industry you can think of.. It’s widespread use would completely change the entire world as we know it.
