5 Ways Hemp Changed The World
Hemp is one of the most ancient, cultivated plant species on the planet. We now have evidence of its use dating back an incredible 5000 years, with the likelihood of it being grown and used even beyond that. Historically, it’s believed hemp has over 25,000 uses, including textiles, paper building materials, eco-fuel, eco-plastic, paint, nutrition and medicine. Yet still, even with this extraordinary level of real world application as a ceremonial, spiritual, medicinal, structural plant with a seemingly endless array of uses, we still face scepticism and a skewed perception of cannabis – simply another name for hemp – after a comparably short stint of century-long propaganda and misinformation.
As a brand not only invested in, but impassioned by this remarkable plant, it is part of our goal to help re-educate the world and spread awareness about the wonders of cannabis, and how it remains arguably the most significant plant species in human history.
