HEMP | history
thousand and one uses | links
us introduce you to a miracle of nature:
Industrial Hemp (Cannabis Sativa) is the
plant which has been the most cultivated
in the last 10,000 years. It is a plant
which has many uses.
First, it is important to understand the
difference between Industrial Hemp and the
psycho-active drug “Marijuana” or “Pot”.
Know that the reason those two plants
seem to be the same in your mind is
because of a massive campaign
of disinformation driven by big
corporations in the 30’s, and is still
active this very day. The goal of this
campaign being to eradicate industrial
hemp and its huge industrial potential
from the market. The plan? Associate hemp
with a terrible new drug called
“Marijuana”, and then outlaw it. Simple
Industrial hemp and “Marijuana” are
different breeds of the Cannabis sativa
Scientifically, it is barely feasible to
measure the quantity of THC in industrial
hemp seed oil since it is so small. In
that case, they say it contain trace
of THC. (For example, our body
contains trace of Cyanide, or many
medication contain trace of alcohol)
Hemp harvest was outlawed in the United
States in 1937. Several countries followed
in the steps of the US.
Now we are observing a reverse effect.
Countries are now re-discovering the
potential of industrial hemp. For
instance, it is now legal to grow
industrial hemp in Canada since 1995.
Several countries are now legalizing
industrial hemp crop (But not marijuana).
