The Future of Hemp Has Begun

 

From hemp seeds, hemp wood, hemp fibers, hemp oil, and more hemp seeds… industrial hemp is here. Cannabis for food, medicine and industrial materials is just the beginning. A new era is upon us that will lead to a wider use of Cannabis for hemp home building, hemp plastics, hemp clothing, hemp composites, and more. Many products are already gaining popularity, like raw hulled hemp seeds, hemp milk, hemp granola and hemp beer. 

 

It is said that the present is pregnant with the future.” – Voltaire
