Facts about Hemp you may have overlooked

By Sydney Parrish April 13, 2017

Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis plant species that may be used in several different ways. Most are familiar with the nutritional benefits that hemp oil and hemp seeds can provide, and an increasing number of people are beginning to discover the magic of using its derived products. However there is a lot more to hemp than meets the eye, so we wanted to share some less-than-famous facts about the useful underdog that won't necessarily pertain to health.

 

1. Refusing to grow hemp between the 17th and 18th century was illegal and you could serve jail time.

 

2. During World War II, the U.S. Department of Agriculture launched a "Hemp for Victory" campaign, a video to promote growing hemp throughout the country.

 

3. Hemp can actually rid the environment and soil of radioactive material and other toxins.

 

4. It has been known for years that hemp can fuel cars, yet oil and plastic companies fight against the idea in fear of losing profit.

 

5. Can you think of anything that is heat, mildew, pest, light, and rot resistant? ...It's hemp, of course.

 

6. Paintings of Vincent Van Gogh and Rembrandt were often painted on hemp canvases. The word canvas actually comes from the Latin word Cannabis, which transitioned to "canevas." 

 

7. While it takes years for trees to be grown for paper or wood, hemp may be harvested 120 days after being planted.

 

8. All school textbooks were made from flax or hemp paper until the 1880's.

While there are many myths regarding Cannabis floating around, we are lucky to live in a time where we can check those "facts" instantly and form our own opinions. Hemp has over 25,000 known uses and the push to make a switch to hemp products is only gaining strength.
