Hemp

Hɛ́mp | Noun

Cannabis sativa varieties that contain low concentrations of THC. The maximum amount of THC is not standard and varies from country to country. Also referred to as “industrial hemp,” the U.S. government regulates hemp to not exceed 0.3 percent THC on a dry-weight basis. Other countries have similar restrictions. Hemp is cultivated for its seeds or fiber and often used in dietary supplements, skin products, and clothing. The seeds, which contain about 30 percent oil, are edible and a good source of fiber, protein, vitamin E, potassium, and magnesium. Studies have shown consuming hemp seeds may lower blood pressure and risk of heart disease. The oil from hemp seeds can be used to make edible oils in addition to paints, soaps, and varnishes.

 

Hemp is one of the oldest cultivated fiber plants.
