At Demeter, we do not involve ourselves with the politics, but with the beautiful scent of the Cannabis Flower. Slightly floral, slightly spicy, but unmistakably Cannabis, this fragrance has a deep and penetrating beauty. Cannabis is the most durable of the hemp plants, and it produces the toughest cloth, called `canvass.' Canvass was widely used as sails in the early shipping industry, as it was the only cloth that would not rot on contact with sea spray. From a medicinal perspective, Cannabis is reputed to alleviate asthma and glaucoma, and lower blood pressure. Today in the United States, hemp, which is defined as the roots, stalk, and stems of the cannabis plant, is legal to possess. The Cannabis Flower, however, which is at the heart of this fragrance, is used to make Marijuana, and is illegal to possess. Our suggestion; SMELL IT, DON'T SMOKE IT.
