What is Hemp and What is it Used For?

Hemp is defined, by the 2018 Farm Bill, as a Cannabis plant with less than or equal to 0.3% THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol).  Hemp plants contain 80-100 different chemicals called phytocannabinoids, or plant cannabinoids such as CBG, CBN, CBD and THC and a variety of Terpenes.  THC is the famous psychoactive phytocannabinoid that “gets you high”.

Since hemp has such a low concentration of psychoactive phytocannabinoids, it’s legal to grow, manufacture and distribute.  Products made with Hemp Extracts must be reformulated to meet the original criteria of the plant itself. 

“Hemp, or industrial hemp, is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown specifically for industrial use. It can be used to make a wide range of products. Along with bamboo, hemp is one of the fastest growing plants on Earth. It was also one of the first plants to be spun into usable fiber 50,000 years ago.”

The Hemp Plant

Hemp plants are deep-green and grow, on average, to around 4 – 6.5 feet tall.  These plants have very few branches with large 7-part leaves protruding out and smaller leaves with buds, or flowers, concentrated towards the stalk. These buds get larger and more dense at the top of the plant. 

Hemp Flower is greenish-yellow and has a distinct floral smell due to the Terpenes

Hemp Plant Composition

We’ve divided the Hemp Plant into 6 main components

This information comes into play when we go over the different types of hemp extracts and concentrates.  Learning about what is and isn’t in Hemp Lively Hemp Oil, as compared to other brands, is one of the most important pieces of information you need to know.
