In an all-day seminar, the Texas Hemp Industries Association presented the many benefits and Uses of Hemp to a public audience at the Texas Tech University.
Sheila and Coleman Hemphill of the Texas Hemp Industries Association, paid a visit to the Texas Tech University in Lubbock on Monday. They presented facts about benefits, uses, and economic potential of industrial hemp, and provided information about hemp versus marijuana.
Sheila Hemphill stated that the only psychoactive component in hemp is tetrahydrocannabinol, (THC), and when a plant has less than 0.03%, which hemp does, it is not enough to act as a psychoactive stimulant. In other words, you can’t get high from smoking hemp.
The numerous benefits of industrial hemp include health and nutrition, manufacturing and reducing the use of water, and its sustainable and environmentally friendly qualities.
There are approximately 25,000 uses of hemp. All parts of the hemp plant are used to produce a plethora of products such as food, fuel, cosmetics, clothing, building materials, paper, and medicine.
