Industrial hemp is a versatile plant grown for its fiber, seed or oil. This hardy and renewable resource – one of the earliest domesticated plants known – was refined for various industrial applications, including paper, textiles, and cordage.
Over time, the use of industrial hemp has evolved into an even greater variety of products, including construction materials, biofuels, plastic, health foods, body care, clothing and more.
Hemp can be grown without fungicides, herbicides and pesticides, it absorbs carbon dioxide, requires minimal irrigation and matures in three to four months. It is also used for soil remediation and crop rotation.
