Hemp & its Various Industrial Uses

Hemp is the common name given to the entire genus of Cannabis plants, which includes three different species, Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica and Cannabis ruderalis. However, the word hemp is generally used to refer to Cannabis strains which are grown for industrial purposes. Hemp has long been used for producing fiber, seed-based oils, and seeds as food.

Industrial hemp products are made from selected Cannabis plants to produce an abundance of fiber. (WikipediA)
