    Actually, hemp is a version of the plant known as cannabis sativa sativa or industrial hemp. This plant contain such low amounts of delta9-tetrahydrocannibol (THC) that it is completely useless as a psychoactive drug. In fact, it actually contains a very high amount of the anti-psychoactive CDB. Kind of like an anti-marijuana.

    Industrial hemp is not suitable for drug use because of the initial low THC content, high CDB content, and the fact that it is allowed to cross-pollinate and germinate, further reducing any THC levels.

    The high THC cannibis plant is known as cannibis indica.

    You might want to find out what kind of hemp your friend has as there are many different varieties, most of which are not even related to the cannabis family:

    Manila hemp (abacá, Musa textilis),

    sisal hemp (Agave sisalana),

    Mauritius hemp (Furcraea gigantea),

    New Zealand hemp (Phormium tenax),

    Sunn hemp (Crotalaria juncea),

    Indian hemp (jute, Corchorus capsularis or C. clitorus),

    Indian hemp (Apocynum cannabinum),

    and bow-string hemp (Sansevieria cylindrica)

    So, no, you can't get high from smoking hemp. I'm not sure why you would want to, it would taste like trying to smoke dried cornstalks.

    BTW, the DEA allows hemp to be imported to the U.S., but you can't grow it here, that's illegal.

    Hemp is a type of marijuana, but it's THC (the chemical that causes the high) levels are so low many researches doubt it can actually cause a high. So, if your sure it's hemp, then you probably can't.

    Ok, so you smoke weed - what does that have to do with getting your baby taken away? I know all these people are giving you a hard time, and no, it's not the healthiest thing for your baby, so if you want to quit, go for it. But just because you smoke, doesn't mean you'll get your child taken unless there is someone close to you who is a nark & will report you. If you can't be a fully functional mother while smoking, then you just shouldn't smoke. Otherwise, I'm not sure what you're worried about?
