Hemp at Present...
Recently many countries have recognised hemp’s potential and its value as an environmentally responsible crop.
Although hemp has lost out on nearly a century of technology and market development, farmers and businesses are rediscovering its incredible potential across the planet. As hemp research and cultivation resumes, many more uses for it will be discovered.
The search is on for alternatives to pesticide greedy cotton, forest-destroying paper, war-generating and polluting petrochemicals and nutritionally devoid western diets.
Hemp stalks and seeds are used by industrial/commercial companies for textiles, foods, papers, body care products, detergents, plastics and building materials.
Countries using Hemp
More than 30 nations, including England, France, Germany, China and Canada now have a legal hemp industry, and many more are undertaking research in a move towards a change in legislation.
Today hemp for commercial use is grown mostly by China, Hungary, England, Canada, Australia, France, Italy, Spain, Holland, Germany, Poland, Romania, Russia, Ukraine and India and throughout Asia.
