Uses and benefits of hemp

Hemp is a versatile crop that has been used for centuries to make a variety of products, including textiles, paper, and food. In recent years, there has been renewed interest in hemp due to its potential health benefits and its use in the production of cannabidiol (CBD) products.


One of the key benefits of hemp is its ability to grow quickly and thrive in a variety of soil types and climates. This makes it an attractive crop for farmers looking for a low-maintenance, high-yield option. Hemp is also a sustainable crop that requires fewer pesticides and herbicides than many other crops, making it an environmentally friendly choice.


However, it is important to control the THC levels in hemp. THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the psychoactive compound found in marijuana. While hemp is a variety of cannabis plant, it contains very low levels of THC (less than 0.3%). This means that hemp is not intoxicating and will not be used recreationally. 

Controlling THC levels in hemp using portable NIR spectroscopy

Controlling the THC levels in hemp is important for several reasons. First, it ensures that hemp products are legal and compliant with regulations. Second, it helps to maintain the reputation of hemp as a safe and beneficial crop. Third, it ensures that consumers are not exposed to high levels of THC.


Portable NIR spectroscopy is used to help the grower assure their crop is safe and ready for market.


In conclusion, hemp is a versatile and sustainable crop with many potential health benefits. However, it is important to use NIR spectroscopy to control the THC levels in hemp to ensure compliance with regulations, maintain the reputation of hemp as a safe and beneficial crop, and protect consumers from the negative effects of high levels of THC.
