But let’s move the camera just a bit.
There is a separate strain of Cannabis, called Cannabis Sativa L, or Hemp. With low to no THC (the chemical that gets you “high”), Hemp nevertheless has myriad practical applications.
The seed and the stalk especially can be the base for thousands of products.
Let’s take a look at a few amazing hemp products you can buy today.
Are Hemp Products Legal?

Growing hemp is illegal…sort of. Hemp is still included as a controlled substance at the federal level.
But the 2014 Farm Bill gave states the right to cultivate hemp commercially. Since then, about 16 states have approved laws beyond the Farm Bill to allow for the growing of hemp.
That said, hemp products are legal to buy and use in all fifty states. When Congress drafted cannabis laws, they excluded products made from the stalks and seeds of the hemp plant.
So while you may not be able to products your own versions of the products below (yet), buying and using them isn’t going to get you in any trouble.
1. Hemp Beer (And Vodka!)
If you know a little bit about the production of alcohol, you know that most of it starts with some kind of starch at its base. Barley, wheat, potatoes, and…hemp?
It’s true!
Hemp and Hops come from the same plant family, so Hemp beer shouldn’t come as any surprise.
But hemp is being used to make vodka, rum, cider, and even wine.
Now, because hemp doesn’t have any THC in it, the hemp doesn’t add any euphoric or psychoactive effects to the alcohol. It does, however, add an interesting flavor to any alcohol it’s in.
2. Sunscreen
Hemp itself may not give you any protection from the sun, but it is an amazing base for zinc oxide, which does.
Hemp sunscreens provide the same level of protection as conventional sunscreens, with the added benefit of hemp, which nourishes skin and keeps it healthy.
3. Pet Toys
Why not let your favorite pup get in on the hemp action, too?
Hemp fibers can produce incredibly durable rope, which manufacturers can then turn into — you more info guessed it — rope dog toys!
Hemp is non-toxic, and since there’s no THC, you don’t have to worry about any psychoactive effects on your pup, either. Plus, you’re making sure your dog toys are made in a sustainable, earth-friendly way.
P.S. These make a great gift for the dog-lover in your life!

Also, because hemp grows so quickly, you’re relying on a highly sustainable crop to keep you cozy at night, ensuring that bedding companies are making the most of our natural resources.
5. CBD Oil
