166. In fact, the cultivars that are used for hemp don't make much if any THC
But they do LOOK similar to the ones that do. (Though apparently the ones that are specially bred for hyper-THC production for the drug market are dwarf clones that do their thing in specialized indoor overlit growing rooms.) I was reading about this in the "Marijuana" chapter of the Michael Pollan's fascinating book, The Botany of Desire.

Most weed marijuana plants will produce very little THC, but their fiber - as you found - is superb.
