Exclamation hemp is cannabis

and locking the thread in which you suggested otherwise KC will not change that fact.

Thank you paolo for pointing that out. Did I lock that thread? As I said related, but try smoking "hemp" to get yourself high...

using the link provided:

Hemp is the common name for plants of the genus Cannabis.

When grown for non-drug purposes hemp is often called industrial hemp, and a common product is fiber for use in a wide variety of products.

Cannabis sativa L. subsp. sativa var. sativa is the variety grown for industrial use in Europe, Canada, and elsewhere, while C. sativa subsp. indica generally has poor fiber quality and is primarily used for production of recreational and medicinal drugs.


whilst pop culture or industrial terms may suggest distinction, for someone of a scientific leaning, (inclusive of botanical nomenclature,) those things you regarded in the other thread are one and the same. the only distinction is how this single organism is applied, be it as narc or fibre.

Again, smoke something that is designated "hemp" vs something that is designated "marijuana" and I think you'll get different results. Same family hence the "relation" I mentioned.

Man, do you like to "discuss" things...

That's pretty interesting! I know that Sativas and Indicas produce different types of highs (Sativas are more cerebral while Indicas are more of a body stone). I could see a sativa being good for hemp fibre as they grow so tall (often between 15 to 20 feet) and Indicas are more shrub-like, so less fibre there although they grow better in a Canadian climate. I always thought that "hemp" was simply the male species of cannabis which produces very little THC, and can easily be identified from the female species at an early stage of growth. Seeds can also be modified by an acid (can't think of the name off the top of my head) to change the sex of the plant.

as with faunal species such as Canis canis, the selective breeding programs initiated by humanoids has created many distinct varieties of the same species.

the Cannabis sp, is no different in this respect; in that fibre producing companies will select against those products which have their resources produce a more hallucinogenic result and vice versa.

it is inaccurate to suggest that such a diversity in phenotypic qualities equates to distinct species, and so i maintain, hemp IS Cannabis sp.

KC - as you know, i do enjoy discussion, but also, i wrote a paper on the entire history of cannabis sp whilst at uni!

and so ya-boo-sucks!
