What is hemp?

Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown specifically for the industrial uses of its derived products. Unlike marijuana, another variety of Cannabis plant, hemp does not have psychoactive effects. You will not get “high” from hemp, which is part of the reason why it is legal and readily available in most parts of the world.

How does it work?

Hemp contains minuscule amounts of naturally-occurring CBD. CBD primarily interacts with the 

body’s natural endocannabinoid system.


Almost every organ in your body contains cannabinoid receptors that react to naturally occurring cannabinoids produced in your body, known as endocannabinoids. Hemp contains plant-based cannabinoids, called phytocannabinoids.


The endocannabinoid system has four primary purposes:

  1. Neuroprotection
  2. Stress relief
  3. Immune response
  4. Regulating the body’s general state of balance


Unlike marijuana, hemp does not interact directly with the two cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2. This is why hemp does not cause any psychoactive effects. Instead, hemp activates other receptors, like the vanilloid, adenosine and serotonin receptors.
