Caption: Hemp plants. View from the ground of hemp plants (Cannabis sativa) in a commercial field. Hemp is grown for its fibres, which can be used in papers and textiles. The waste products of this process can be used to make lower grade paper, and hemp seeds are used as a source of oil which can be used in varnishes, cosmetics and lubricants. The leaves and flowering heads of hemp (marijuana) contain the psychoactive drug delta-9-tetrahydro- cannabinol, or THC. Hemp production is strictly controlled for this reason. Hemp grown for its fibres contains much less THC than hemp illegally grown for marijuana, and has little effect as a drug. Photographed in Manitoba, Canada.
