First of all, hemp is not marijuana, but they do come from the same plant, Cannabis Sativa. Hemp cultivation dates back to 9000 years ago and is used for many different things.
It is actually one of the most useful plants on the planet. It can be used to meet the four vital human needs: food, shelter, clothes and energy. Its oil can be used for fuel as well as in food and can also be used to make health and cosmetic products. Its fibres can be used to make paper, canvas and fabric as well as fibreglass, fibreboard and hempcrete. These products are used then to make clothes, houses and even cars!
Another bonus is that hemp is incredibly environmentally friendly, keeping the soils healthy as it grows and is also very cost effective as no herbicides or pesticides are needed.
One of the biggest benefits that hemp has within our society is that it is a SUPERFOOD.
It is gluten-free, lactose-free, allergen-free, nut-free and GMO-free, as well as improving overall health and well being of the body.
An increased use of hemp can, not only improve your health and lifestyle, but also our planet!
