Growing hemp has been illegal from 1937 until 2014 because the plant can be manipulated to enhance a psychoactive chemical in the plant’s flowers called THC. With the passing of the 2014 Farm Bill, Hemp is once again legal to be planted on american soil! The Farm Bill was also known as the agricultural act of 2014! With Hemp Temps already working so closely with Marijuana, we decided to expand our horizons and venture into the world of HEMP! Between the two, there are so many similarities but also many differences. While marijuana plants contain high levels of THC, hemp contains very little of the psychoactive chemical. When cultivating Marijuana typically produces female flowering plaints that yield into budding flowers and follow a life cycle. While Hemp is primarily male, with no flowering buds at any stage of their growing process. Marijuana is considered mainly just a medicine while Hemp is used for so many things. Items including rope, fabrics, paper, sail canvas, fuel, ink, mulch, batteries, and even make up! Hemp is great for the environment and even an excellent source of nutrition! It could even provide us with a new energy source, its just like corn, it can be converted into clean-burning fuel. Mark our words friends, Industrial Hemp might be the crop of the future!*Don’t forget, to follow our Facebook Page “Hemp Temps Colorado” we recently attended a Hemp Expo that was very informative and we got some great pictures!
