What is Superedibles' Raw Organic Hemp Seed?
The hemp plant is cultivated for its fibers, seed, seed meal and seed oil. THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) is the primary psychoactive ingredient in the marijuana variety of the plant species Cannabis sativa L. Hemp is the distinctly non-drug, low THC, variety of the species. Hemp cannot be used as a drug because it produces virtually no THC (less than .3%), whereas marijuana produces between 5 - 20 % THC.
The hemp plant has been grown for at least the last 12,000 years for fiber (textiles and paper) and food. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson both grew hemp. Ben Franklin owned a mill that made hemp paper. Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence on hemp paper. Because of its importance for sails (the word "canvas" is rooted in "cannabis") and rope for ships, hemp was an important crop in colonial America. When US sources of "Manila hemp" (not true hemp) was cut off by the Japanese in WWII, the US Army and US Department of Agriculture promoted the "Hemp for Victory" campaign to grow hemp in the US.
