Why Hemp?

Why Hemp?
Hemp is a plant that’s grown for its fibers, but not its seeds. Historically, hemp was used for rope and sails. It was also used by early civilizations as a source of fiber and clothing. Today, hemp is a popular, sustainable crop for use mainly for rope and clothing. While it doesn’t grow well in colder climates, hemp can be grown in warmer climates just as easily as any other crop.
What is the difference between hemp and marijuana/ cannabis?
Today, ‘hemp’ and ‘marijuana‘ are in use interchangeably which is a cause of confusion in the industry. Because the word cannabis technically refers to the entire genus of the flowering plant which includes both hemp and marijuana. It is not wholly accurate to exclude hemp when using the term. The word “marijuana” has been used to distinguish between cannabis that is hemp and cannabis that isn’t based on the percentage of the THC each crop contains. While this may seem arbitrary, it has become a clear enough standard that the industrialists are breeding new varieties of cannabis plants with this threshold in mind. This seems strange, but the THC content has become the standard for the legal cannabis and hemp CBD industries and is the criterion for the division of Cannabis plants, which contain many cannabinoids alongside many more chemical compounds. Hence, the terms hemp and marijuana serve to distinguish between varieties of plants belonging to the same species that find themselves on very different sides of the law.
Is hemp Legal in India?

In 2016 Uttarakhand became the first state in India to legalise the large scale production and cultivation of hemp for commercial use. This was under Section 14 of the NDPS Act of 1985.
