What is Hemp
The Hemp plant is many things to many people. Most importantly it's a plant. There is a fear factor with certain people when it comes to this plant and its leaves but the truth is hemp has been a part of our lives for thousands of years.
- Hemp has been grown for at least the last 12,000 years for fiber (textiles and paper) and food. It has been effectively prohibited in the United States since the 1950s
- Industrial Hemp is NOT Marijuana. They are cousins and although they are similar they have one distinct difference
- The THC content of hemp is less than 1% and in some states hemp must be less than 0.3% THC, the psychoactive chemical in Marijuana that gets you "high"
- A 1938 Popular Mechanics described hemp as a "New Billion Dollar Crop." That's back when a billion was real money
From seed to stem the Hemp plant is a valuable resource.

- At a volume level of 81%, hemp oil is the richest known source of polyunsaturated essential fatty acids (the "good" fats). It's quite high in some essential amino acids, including gamma linoleic acid (GLA), a very rare nutrient also found in mother's milk

- Core fiber is derived from the sturdy, wood-like hollow stalk of the hemp plant. Sometimes referred to as "hurds", it is up to twice as absorbent as wood shavings, making it an excellent animal bedding and garden mulch. It can be easily blended with lime to create a strong yet lightweight concrete or plaster. It's high cellulose content means it can be applied to the manufacturing of plastics. Like primary fiber, it is biodegradable and possesses anti-mildew and antimicrobial properties.
