Hemp fields have scattered male plants to pollinate the female plants for future seeds.  Marijuana fields eliminate the male plants to ensure maximum production of sinsemilla flowers.  Hemp is planted more densely. Marijuana cultivation requires the plants be spaced apart to reduce the risk of mold.

Hemp plants are almost always cultivated outdoors.  Marijuana plants are usually planted in an indoor greenhouse.

CBD Hemp Flower was cultivated for thousands of years on a global scale. Cannabis carried weight in the Greco-Roman cultures for their fiber, intoxication, and medicine. Cannabis seeds were discovered in the ruins of Pompeii.  Hemp was a prominent crop in the United States until 1937, but the Marihuana Tax Act wiped out the America hemp industry.

Versatility of Hemp

Then just as the United States Constitution was drafted on hemp paper, literally, hemp saved the day during World War II because for a brief period it came back for making military items, uniforms, canvas, and rope. Then another law passed and tossed the cannabis industry into dormancy once again.

  • Cannabis sativa is most common and grows around tropical regions, such as Central America, Africa, and Asia. Sativa is the tallest known type in height.
  • Cannabis indica was discovered at a later time and flourishes in arid, mountainous regions. Many of these areas are in the hills of Afghanistan and parts of India. Indicas are short and bush resembling a short Christmas tree.
  • Cannabis ruderalis grows predominantly in China, Russia, and Poland. Ruderalis is adapted to harsh environments. A small and hardy plant, it is used for fibers and nutrition.
