people ask us all the time, why we say cannabis confections when we use hemp. the term “hemp” is generally used to describe a strain of non-intoxicating cannabis that is cultivated for industrial use or the extraction of cannabinoids such as cbd. hemp and the more traditional thc-rich cannabis plant are both cannabis plants, cannabis sativa, but they are bred to be very different.
they differ in their morphology, chemical makeup, cultivation techniques, and their usages. hemp is typically grown for its high-protein seeds and fibrous stalk which is used for a wide variety of products including paper, clothing, building materials, cooking oil, hemp flour, and more. the biggest difference between traditional cannabis and hemp for us, is that hemp plants are bred to not produce high amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (thc), the intoxicating cannabinoid. once you remove it though, it begins producing the non-intoxicating and medicinally rich cannabidiol (cbd), in higher concentrations. and that’s what we want!
using cannabis hemp in our products gives you all of the medicinal benefits of cannabis without any of the intoxicating effects while reminding everyone that the cannabis plant is much more than just thc or being intoxicated. it’s about feeling better.
