Hemp has got to be the most demonized and misunderstood plant on the planet. You would never think that with the strong ban against this plant that the United States at some point thrived economically, due to Hemp aka Marijuana production.
Hemp was grown throughout the United States for industrial purposes from fabric, food, bio fuel and many more essential uses.
It is also said that the Declaration of Independence was drafted on hemp paper and farmers were encouraged to cultivate and grow hemp due to its varied uses and durability from ropes and building structures among many medicinal uses as well. It also got the U.S. through WWII.
So why the aggressive ban on such a self sufficient & fruitful plant?
Social, political and monetary reasons, contributed to the worldwide ban of cultivating this plant which led the misinformation about not just hemp as a drug, but other medicinal plants as well.
Today, a lot of information is resurfacing about hemp and how we can use it in virtually everyday products you can imagine from the foods we eat, beauty products we use and even the clothes we wear can all be derived from this one plant.
