What is hemp?
Hemp, also called "cannabis sativa L", is one of the oldest plants domesticated by man. It belongs to the family of cannabinaceae.
It is an annual plant that grows wild all over the planet as a small bush or shrub with characteristic leaves.
It germinates in spring and flowers from late summer until the end of October. It is a species selected by botanists which is totally different from cannabis used for its recreational effects since it has little THC (molecule with psychotropic effects) and a lot of CBD (cannabidiol). Thus, it does not lead to dependence or addiction.
Cannabidiols are molecules with many therapeutic virtues such as analgesic, anti-inflammatory, healing and anti-free radical properties.
