More about hemp and its products
Hemp is a dioecious plant of the species Cannabis sativa mainly grown for the various uses of its derived products. Although hemp and marijuana belong to the same biological family (cannabis), they have several differences between them. The main difference is that hemp contains only a trace of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) while marijuana contains a high amount of the tetrahydrocannabinol, a chemical responsible for its psychoactive characteristics.
However, the amount of THC produced in hemp is not enough to create the intoxicating effect when consumed but the plant can produce the medicinally rich and non-intoxicating cannabidiol (CBD)
From seeds to stalk, the whole plant of hemp can be used for many purposes including making fuel and feedstock. For more specification hemp is divided into;
- Hurds or shives
- Bast fibres
- Leaves and flowers
These products serve a wide range of purposes which include; proteins (from seeds), fibre (from the hemp stem) and smokable portions and oils (from the flowers, seeds, and leaves).
Can hemp be used as a food product?
Yes, it can. Hemp seeds are rich in dietary fibre, vitamins, protein and minerals. For healthful consumption, they incorporate an optimal ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids. According to a research, it was also found that hemp proteins are easily digestible by the human body compared to common soy protein isolates (SPIs).
Hemp oil is another food product pressed from the hemp seeds. It contains 20 amino acids making it a perfect additive or food supplement for repairing and building body muscles. Seeds can also be crushed or pressed to produce hemp seed flour and oil. They can also be hulled or shelled to increase palatability. The shells are used to make flour (highly rich in fibre).
Other hemp products
CBD oil is one of the products of hemp-extracted from its leaves and flowers. It’s a medicinal oil that can be used in the treatment of various skin ailments including, psoriasis, eczema and acne rosacea.

The plant also contains hurds or shives which are raw materials for making absorbents, bedding materials, compost, particle board and ceiling panels.
