Facts About Hemp
Our friend hemp is a versatile plant and it also has a few heavyweight titles. Hemp is the longest and strongest plant fiber. Because we are very concerned about our natural resource, water, it is heart-warming to know that hemp only uses 1/20th the amount of water to grow and process as regular cotton. Hemp is naturally less vulnerable to insects and crowds out other weeds so pesticides and fertilizers become obsolete when we deal with hemp.
The US has long history with hemp. Our Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution were written on hemp paper, not to mention the first US flag was made out of hemp. Both Jefferson and Washington were hemp farmers. These are our forefathers, the ones who realized and wrote down our rights. Early US governments demanded the cultivation of hemp and you could be jailed if you didn't grow Indian hemp in Virginia, Massachusetts and Connecticut in the 18th century. Hemp was money. It was currency and was used to pay taxes for over 200 years. By the 1850's there were almost 8,400 hemp plantations in the US that had at least 2,000 acres of land or more.
