What is hemp?
Hemp has been part of our culture for more than 10.000 years. Hemp is one of the oldest domesticated crops known to man and is believed to have originated in South or Central Asia. It is one of the strongest, most durable, naturally soft fibers on the planet. Its applications include paper, fuel, oils, medicine, clothing, housing, plastic, rope, and even food for thousands of years. In fact, the Columbia History of the World states that the oldest relic of human industry is a scrap of hemp fabric dating back to approximately 8,000 BC.
Another interesting fact is that hemp was used as legal tender (money), as people were able to pay their taxes with hemp for over 200 years in America.
