Marijuana is cultivated for its high levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the chemical compound in cannabis responsible for the “HIGH”. THC originates mostly in the flowers and trichomes of the plant.
Hemp has been cultivated worldwide for thousands of years. Hemp has been used for industrial and medical purposes. Hemp makes useful items like clothing, rope, paper, sails, and thousands of other products.
Recent research into other uses for hemp has found comparatively high levels of cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive compound, which has shown significant human health benefits in numerous clinical trials.

A long-time friend of the Hemplucid founders, it was after a series of impactful family medical events that he began writing for the company in the Spring of 2017. (FYI CBD saved the day! Thanks, Hemplucid.)
