What's The Difference Between Cannabis And Hemp


Cannabis And The Environment

The cannabis plant has long been demonised as a source of societal ill. However, looking beyond the decades of Reefer Madness, we can see that hemp actually has a wide range of uses and applications out in the world. The fibre, oil, leaves, and seeds of the hemp plant are used in the production of an array of industrial and consumer goods such as fabric, rope, paper, and even food.

Hemp has environmental applications as well. For example, it can be used for decontaminating water and soil, restoring ecosystems, and as a natural pesticide. Its roots dig deep down into the soil, preventing topsoil erosion and desertification. Additionally, these roots have been shown to have a beneficial effect during flooding because of their ability to absorb excess water.

Moreover, because hemp does not require large amounts of water, fertilisers, or pesticides, it is considered to have a negative carbon footprint and a beneficial overall impact on the environment.

In addition, hemp’s utility means that it can replace more environmentally intensive or destructive crops. For instance, it is not only more durable and less resource-intensive to produce than cotton, but is also of higher quality, and more productive in terms of yield.

When compared to timber pulp, hemp is more durable and more efficient, while having a greater potential for recyclability. Cannabis paper can be recycled nearly twice as many times as standard pulp paper. Furthermore, the pulp and paper industry contributes vast amounts of annual pollution to both the air and water. Therefore, more hemp-derived paper products means less of the pollution typically associated with pulp and paper making.
