Hemp, also called industrial hemp, is a low-THC cannabis plant. It originated in Central Asia and has been used for thousands of years for the production of clothing and as a construction material. The plant is believed to have up to 50,000 end uses including paper, fuel and beauty products.
Legal strains of Hemp typically have a THC content of less than 0.3% (America, Canada, New Zealand and Europe), or 0.2% (United Kingdom). However, in some countries, like Switzerland, legal Hemp can have a THC concentration of up to 1%.
