Hazardous Waste
Hazardous wastes are wastes that could harm human health or the environment if not properly handled or disposed of . Special techniques are needed to eliminate or reduce the hazards. Hazardous wastes must not be sent to ordinary landfills or discharged to sewer; more specialized facilities are required to deal safely with these wastes. Wastes may be “hazardous” for many different reasons:

 They are corrosive, ignitable, infectious, reactive and toxic (the “acute” hazard characteristics)

 They have the potential to harm human health or the environment in a subtle manner over long periods of time (the “chronic” hazards)

 They may range from paints, oils and solvents to acids, heavy metal-containing sludges and pesticides

Hemp

Hemp and marijuana are both members of the Cannabis Sativa species, therefore they share certain
similarities but have distinct differences. Marijuana is bred for psychoactive and medical substances called Cannabinoids, the most dominant of which are Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD). Hemp is bred for industrial uses, such as food and fabric for clothing.

Oil
Certain components of cannabis, such as THC, CBD and other cannabinoids, can be distilled into a concentrate through an extraction process. The resulting cannabis oil can then be used as an ingredient in edibles and other products.
