Since ancient times (and we aren’t just talking about the 60’s, man), hemp has been used for everything from clothing and paper to food products and medicine. Although our Founding Fathers grew it for years, the US government banned hemp and its close relative, marijuana, in 1937. Thankfully, the recently-passed 2018 Farm Bill made hemp completely federally legal again. What’s the difference between hemp and marijuana? We know it’s confusing, especially with all the buzz around legal weed these days. The first thing to know is that hemp and marijuana are both technically cannabis. Marijuana, the mind-altering variety, contains more than .3% THC. Hemp, on the other hand, contains less than .3% THC. The flower we use for our pre rolled joints comes from high quality hemp that is sun grown by experienced farmers in much the way marijuana is grown. It looks, smells and tastes like the finest buds you would pick up at your local dispensary but is legal to produce, sell, buy and toke in all 50 states. If that doesn’t get you jazzed up, this certainly will: When grown responsibly and with enough TLC, hemp can have way higher concentrations of CBD than marijuana which, for the most part, has been genetically engineered to maximize THC. That means you get more of the good stuff with less of the bad.
