About HEMP

Hemp is an incredible and versatile plant that benefits hydroponics, textile, medicine, and beauty sectors. Hemp is used in hundreds of products ranging from food & beverages to skin care to clothing. The Expo is the place to learn more.

HHI Expo is the best place to change the misinformation people have about the uses of Hemp in research, science, health, and more.

 

Difference between Cannabis and Hemp

To clear people’s misconception on cannabis and hemp, they are not the same thing.

Cannabis is a family of plants that contain a variety of different compounds called Cannabinoids. The most dominant of them all is Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD). THC is the active compound in certain strains of the plant which induces psychoactive effects, while CBD doesn’t contain any psychoactive properties.

Hemp is rich in CBD but has a very low concentration of THC (0.3% or less) and is used for industrial purposes. Hemp is able to produce many products such as oils, food products, paper, textiles, biofuel, building materials and more.

Hemp is also used to produce a wide range of THC-free CBD products because of CBD’s growing popularity.

For general information, as of November 2017, it's legal to grow and sale low-THC hemp seed as food.
