We are being made aware today on how we both can satisfy our needs and at the same time be conscious on how these needs will have an effect and will change our climate. We are therefore to carefully balance our needs to that of our environment to reduce negative impact to our environment, and one thing of doing this is to use green products such as hemp.
Dating more than 1000 years at the same period as pottery, hemp is said to be among the oldest industries on the planet. Very low in THC or cannabinoids, hemp is cannabis grown and is intended for industrial use. This material is used all over the world in clothing and is now used increasingly for cosmetics, paper, textiles, building materials, food, medicine, paint, detergent, varnish, oil, ink and fuel.
