Understanding the major differences between illegal cannabis and legal hemp.
If you are digging our Dime Bags but are confused on the legality of hemp products in general, then you have come to the right place. Whether it be a product made entirely of hemp or one with only trace amounts, it makes no difference – both are completely legal in all 50 states of the US. Don’t worry, there are no age restrictions nor special license required for purchase either. Hemp is one of the most versatile commodities on the market today and has thousands of uses in addition to our Dime Bags.
Protecting State’s Hemp Rights
The Agricultural Act of 2014 protects your right to purchase and own your very own Dime Bag, or any other of the thousands of hemp-related products available on the market today. It also protects the hemp industry’s right to manufacture them. You also may have heard it referred to as the 2014 Farm Bill – this law grants state-run agencies permission to grow and cultivate hemp under a strict set of rules and regulations. More importantly, it defines the term “industrial hemp” as any cannabis strain that contains less than 0.2% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – creating a pure and non-intoxicating product. Our Dime Bags, as well as thousands of other hemp-related items are perfectly legal and protected under this act – but it is important to note that this law has no effect on marijuana whatsoever, which will remain illegal for all extensive purposes.
Legal Hemp vs Illegal Marijuana: What’s the Difference?
Technically, hemp and cannabis are the same thing. Confusing, right? Well it doesn’t have to be. Simply put, hemp and marijuana both trace their roots to the Cannabis Sativa L family of plants. “What makes them grow so differently?” You may ask. Well, based widely upon the type of seed that is used and the grower’s intent, cannabis can be grown with a focus on either flower development, or instead with a higher emphasis placed upon stalk, seed, and leaf characteristics. Cannabis that is grown exclusively for its flower content is typically very high in tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and is most commonly referred to as “marijuana.” Alternatively, cannabis plants that are grown for stalk development are virtually THC free (less than 0.2%) and are considered hemp.
The Amazing Versatility of Hemp
It is a fact that America’s Founding Fathers grew and cultivated hemp hundreds of years ago to help establish our young nation, and now it helps sustain it. As mentioned earlier, hemp is one of the most versatile commodities in the industrial world. Aside from our Dime Bags, hemp is also a prominent resource used widely as a type of housing material. It is present in certain foods, providing mankind with an abundant food source. It is used to create clothing and is also as an excellent source of fuel as well.
