WHAT IS HEMP / INDUSTRIAL HEMP?
It is a commonly used term for high-growing industrial varieties of the Cannabis plant and its products, which include fibre, oil and seed.
Hemp is refined into products such as hemp seed foods, hemp oil, wax, resin, rope, cloth, pulp, paper and fuel.
Industrial Hemp is not to be confused with the close relative cannabis, which is also a Cannabis plant, but is widely used as a recreational drug and medicine.
Hemp stalks and seeds are used by industrial/commercial companies for textiles, foods, papers, body care products, detergents, plastics and building materials.
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.
