Is hemp the product of the future?

Last week we discussed the amazing and fast-growing bamboo. This week we are going to discuss another fast-growing plant by the name of hemp. Hemp has been around for over 10,000 years and used during that entire time for various products. Many people associate hemp with marijuana and the psychedelic effects from THC. Although they belong to the same family of cannabis, there is a big difference between industrial hemp and hemp grown for the drug/THC effect. Industrial hemp contains less than .02% THC whereas marijuana has levels anywhere from 2% to 20% depending on the strain. We will be discussing industrial hemp in this discussion.

The Discovery Of A Cannabinoid 30 Times Stronger Than THC Isn’t All Good

Marijuana proponents are ecstatic because this super THC discovery means there is higher quality medicine from this plant.

From a group of European researchers comes news of the discovery of a super-cannabis compound, a cannabinoid 30 times stronger than THC. It was discovered while they were looking for additional medicinal qualities in a host of cannabinoids among 150 known to exist.

It’s called THCP, and researchers were stunned: “The presence of this new phytocannabinoid could account for the pharmacological properties of some cannabis varieties difficult to explain by the presence of the sole Delta-9-THC.”

Could Hemp Really Replace Cotton?

Hemp, a member of the Cannabis sativa family, can trace its uses back to as early as 8000 BCE. Traditionally, the fiber of hemp was widely used to produce items such as clothing and fishing nets, while the oil was applied for cosmetic purposes. 

In the 20th century, hemp was determined to be an illegal substance due to its native structure. Hemp is a close relative to the marijuana plant, both indistinguishable in look. Hemp does not, however, boast the psychological effects of marijuana.

Why this will be the decade of CBD

Think we’ve achieved some saturation point for all things cannabidiol (CBD)? Think again. The hemp-based CBD extract market will become a $2.25 to $2.75 billion industry in 2020, according to Nielsen projections. In five years, they expect those figures to more than double. The company predicts CBD will become a $6 billion industry by 2025, when CBD-infused food and beverages become more widely available.

Their 2020 projection, says Rich Maturo, vice president of cannabis practice at Nielsen, skews toward a conservative estimate. The company accounted for possible headwinds from any Food and Drug Administration regulations or other roadblocks that might comes this year.
