Hemp is a wonderful plant with countless applications. It is known to have been used since at least 8,000 B.C. in Mesopotamia. It has been used in the manufacturing of textiles, paper, building materials, fuel, food, rope, twine, canvas, and personal care products. Until the 18th century, 90% of canvases, rope, and nets on ships were made with hemp.
