First things first. Cannabis and Hemp have in common their botanical name which is Cannabis Sativa. They are both from the plant family Cannabaceae, and when cultivated as Industrial Hemp, it is for fiber or its edible seeds.

Hemp by definition is Cannabis Sativa that has less than .3% THC. When grown as Industrial Hemp, it is grown as close together as possible (inches apart), reaching for the sun and blocking any competing ‘weeds’. It requires little water and virtually no sprays. This is allowed to seed and is used for rope, fiber, hempcrete, and thousands of other products including food.

When Hemp is “grown as medicine” it is grown exactly like a Cannabis plant, (about six feet apart if outside) the only difference is in the amount of THC. I guarantee we couldn’t tell the two apart by looking at them even with a jeweler’s loupe.

To obtain less than .3% THC, Cannabis breeders have bred the THC out of their plants and are growing the “Hemp” exactly as they have the Cannabis for decades and are extracting the oil in the same exact way, selling it to a whole new market of people who are seemingly afraid of, or prejudice against, THC. They are the market who has been led to believe that “marijuana is bad and hemp is good”.

Marijuana doesn’t even exist, how about that? You won’t find it in a botanical book. The words marijuana and marihuana have a dark history. They were introduced to induce racism in the 1930s. Greed makes people say and do some crazy things, and Harry Anslinger and William Randolph Hearst helped to create quite a stir which ended with the prohibition of Cannabis, Hemp, Marijuana – whatever you’d like to call it! The doctors didn’t know that this “M” word that they spoke of banning was their beloved Cannabis!

I would like to educate you about “Cannabis, Hemp, and Sativa” and finding the truth!

Remember, you have an EndoCannabinoid System, not an EndoHempanoid system, or an EndoCBD System, or an EndoMarijuana System.
