Cannabis is a plant of the genus Cannabis of the order Cnidae and is a polymorphic species called Cannabis sativa L., which includes the subspecies Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica and Cannabis ruderalis Janisch. The difference lies in morphological, phytochemical and anatomical characteristics such as the shape of the leaves and their content of certain active substances.
Cannabis (Cannabis sativa L.) varieties with an active THC content of less than 0.2%, grown by KANNABIO, are classified as industrial or textile hemp due to their applications and the absence of euphoric action.
Cannabis is an annual, administrative, flowering herb. Male plants carry stamens and pollen for fertilization, while female plants carry pollen and when they bloom without being fertilized they produce inflorescences (flowers) that in botany resemble fruit. The fruits of the plant are considered the seeds of the fertilized female plant that will continue the perpetuation of the species.
The flowers (inflorescences) are covered by tiny glands (hairs) that are responsible for the production of the resin. Hair contains cannabinoids and terpenes, while phytomass includes chlorophyll, phytosterols, polyphenols / flavonoids and lipids.
The leaves are responsible, amongst other things, for the photosynthesis and sweating of the plant. They contain chlorophyll, are an excellent source of fiber, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus and contain antioxidant polyphenols that help protect the body from aging.
Cannabis seeds are considered a complete superfood, which protects the brain, nervous and immune systems. It is the richest source of natural omega fatty acids in the entire plant kingdom. They reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, sciatica, osteoporosis and diabetes. The Ω6 to Ω3 balance of cannabis seed oil is 3: 1, which is considered ideal for the human body, especially for people who have a problem with chronic inflammation, such as arthritis.
The main function of the trunk is the transfer of water and nutrients to the inflorescences and leaves. It includes fibers and wood kernels that have hundreds of industrial uses, from threads and ropes to bioplastics, biofuels and particle boards.
The roots are responsible for absorbing water and nutrients, improving soil quality and filtering water. They also have important medicinal use since antiquity with proven properties that treat various symptoms: inflammation, pain, migraines / headaches, period pains, cramps and muscle aches, dermatitis, asthma, arthritis, acne, eczema, hemorrhoids, hemorrhoids, hemorrhoids cuts, stomach upsets, dysentery, sprains, fever, bleeding, diuretic.
