The hemp sex question that came up...

Chris of Datsusara here. During the podcast it was asked how to tell hemp from marijuanna and Adam thought it was a matter of the male plants being hemp and the female being marijuanna. I looked into it….marijuanna that you want to get high from it's always the female needed ofcourse for the buds, but for industrial hemp it could be either male or female it's just to be classified with the gov as hemp it has to be very low TCH content, under .3%. But I'd like to be clear and say that there is no reason you can't make hemp anything even from full on THC containing female plants, if it was legal. When you make hemp textiles you are using the stalk and not the leaves or buds anyway.
(Hemp vs. Marijuana) “Industrial hemp and marijuana are different varieties of the same species, Cannabis sativa L. Marijuana typically contains 3 to 15 percent of the psychoactive ingredient delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) on a dry-weight basis, while industrial hemp contains less than 1 percent. However, the two varieties are indistinguishable by appearance. In the United States, Cannabis sativa is classified as a Schedule I controlled substance, regardless of its narcotic content, under the Controlled Substances Act as amended. Since 1990, varieties containing less than 0.3 percent THC have been legalized in Great Britain, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Canada and Australia legalized hemp production in 1998. In other countries, such as China, Russia, and Hungary, hemp production was never outlawed.”
