Hype for Hemp - Why We're Passionate about this All-Purpose Plant

- Why We're Passionate about this All-Purpose Plant -

From clothing to beauty products to health supplements and beyond, there is an endless amount of practical uses and countless reasons to be crazy about the cannabis plant. Why are we so passionate about this all-purpose plant? Lay back, light up, (if you so choose) and let us explain our love for this extraordinary herb!

While the hype around hemp has been at an all-time high recently, (pun intended) humans have been using this mighty plant medicinally, practically, ritually, and recreationally for thousands of years.

Cannabis Smokin’ Cavemen & Hemp Harvesting Founding Fathers

There is a wealth of proof of humans using both the mind-altering marijuana and hallucinogenic-free hemp over the past millennia. Evidence of hemp fibers being used for rope, sail canvas, and clothing stretches back at least 4,000 years and plants with high levels of THC were found in small burners near inhalation tents and inside small fur-lined pouches at burial sites. Imagine summoning the energy to hunt and gather after inhaling a bunch of that intoxicating smoke... 😆

Even our Founding Fathers were fond of this ‘plant of the gods!’ George Washington, Ben Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson all farmed hemp. While there is no evidence of the founding fathers blazing up, that doesn’t mean we can’t conjure images of Jefferson coughing on home-grown clouds.

Marijuana Madness

It wasn’t until the ‘30s that weed started getting a bad rap.  Propaganda started pushing the dangers of pot and the image of the “smoke of hell” with its “arms around your children!”  If you smoked the “devil’s harvest” you would descend into madness. 

Devil's Harvest

Whether it was because of true fear of a drug or a ploy to destroy the success of the hemp industry, the criminal classification of cannabis made all forms of the plant, including growing industrial hemp, illegal.  In the fear over the nefarious effects of marijuana, they threw out the baby with the bong water.  The handy hemp plant, with its multitude of practical uses, was tossed out like a spent roach.

The All-Purpose Plant

Yeah, we’ve got a lot of love for this plant, but its justified. Hemp grows abundantly without a lot of water and can do almost everything a tree or cotton plant can do, without deforesting or pumping our planet full of pesticides. One acre of hemp produces as much fiber as 2 to 3 acres of cotton or as much paper material as 2 to 4 acres of trees! This mighty and renewable plant can be used to produce anything from paper to fabric to beauty products to biodegradable plastic or biofuel, and, of course, the beloved CBD oils, pills, and gummies which have flooded the market recently.
