    They don't sell hemp rope anymore. Are any of you awake? Hemp is pot! You guys are blathering like it's a different plant. How can you possibly not know this?

    Incorrect. Commercial hemp is a sativa.

    Hemp is different plant... it's like comparing Tobacco with Tomato... same genus yes but different plants all together.

    Or better yet it's like comparing Salvia Divinorum with Salvia Splendens... ones a psychoactive and ones an ornamental plant.

    No, same plant. Why do you think you can't buy hemp rope anymore? They just cultivate it differently, like packing them together just a couple of inches apart. They grew it for the stalk, not the bud. Sativa was preferred because it grew taller, giving more stalk(fiber).

    Our local Orchard Supply carries hemp rope. It's either Filipino or Chinese in origin. cn

    No, it is intact the same plant. Its more comparing AK-47 to Northern Lights. Hemp will flower just like any other strain except hemp is a strain known for being very tall with little branching, as well as small flowers with low cannabinoid levels. It is in fact cannabis and does in fact produce cannabinoids.

    It's sisal, a poor substitute. hemp rope can not be imported.

    however - industrial hemp is required to have less than 1% THC content in many regions - how can you get that from a sativa?

    Cultivar selection, is my guess. Wild-type sativa has low THC and total cannabinoids. Thirty years ago, brick drug sativa was 1-2% THC and not much CBD at all. cn

    ok - i believe wikipedia -

    Hemp (from Old English h├Žnep) is a term reserved mainly for low tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) strains of the plant Cannabis sativa. Of the approximately 2000 cannabis plants varieties known, about 90% contain only low-grade THC and are most useful for their fiber, seeds and medicinal or psychoactive oils. Hemp is one of the earliest domesticated plants known.

    so that says to me that many sativas out there could be like hemp - but they are certainly not useless medically..

    Considering how high I got on that old-time "Colombian" ... no, not at all!
    But the Wisconsin "ditchweed" came from an especially low-THC cultivar of C. sativa L., and it's good for a practical joke. Or newsprint. Imo. cn

    i mean like - hemp weed that might taste good - why i started this thread - i am trying to quit tobacco and right now i have been smoking some 'herbal cigs' ecstacy brand.. they taste pretty bad compared to a cig or weed... but, i still imagine that a person could smoke hemp and feel better than with any current cigarette,,, now that i know it is a sativa we are talking about - it is more realistic that there are good tasting hemps no?

    You should start breeding some ultra low THC plants with some Bubblegum or Mango bud... haha

    Smoking gives repiratory disease regardless of what you are smoking. Burning the bud produces tar and lots of carcinogens.

    There's cigarette from India called a "Bidi" (sic?) that contains no tobacco. Don't know about health issues. Some Indian owned stores sell them. Taste is actually good. A Indian friend gave me a pack. She sold them $1.25 a pack a few years ago.

    Dupont, paper and cotton companies were in on it to. Over 25,000 textiles were made from it. You can literally make damn near anything from it.

    I've smoked it. It taste and smells like bud. Even looks like bud. You can tell the difference if you know what to look for.

    Its better to do an extraction on it with pure grain alcohol. It makes a great medicine for pain, inflammation, sleep problems and many other health reasons.

    If it hasn't been sprayed with toxic chemicals it shouldn't give you a headache.
