“Cannabis Sativa L” refers to a specific botanical classification of the cannabis plant. The “L” stands for Linnaeus, named after Carl Linnaeus, the renowned botanist who developed the modern system of taxonomy.
Cannabis sativa L is one of the three primary species within the cannabis genus, alongside Cannabis indica and Cannabis ruderalis. It is a tall, slender plant with narrow leaves, typically grown in warmer climates with long growing seasons.
The term “Cannabis sativa L” is often used to refer to industrial hemp varieties of the cannabis plant that are cultivated for industrial and commercial purposes, such as fiber, seed, and oil production. These hemp varieties contain low levels of THC (usually less than 0.3% THC by dry weight in the United States), making them unsuitable for producing psychoactive effects.
