Cannabis is an incredibly special plant that has played an important role in human history
for decades. It has been used for a variety of purposes, including, paper, textile, fuel,
in the construction, food and medical industries. Cannabis and marijuana should not be confused. Cannabis and marijuana are cannabis species – both belong to the Cannabis Sativa family. Although they come from the same species and contain a psychoactive component – tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), they are different strains. Hemp contains a lower THC and a higher CBD, which reduces or eliminates the psychoactive effect.
