Hemp is Making a Comeback
Having been cultivated by the Ancient Mesopotamians (present-day Iran and Iraq) as a textile fiber in 8,000 BC, hemp is the most ancient example of human industry. It has a close resemblance to “Tree of Life,” regarded to have been passed down from the “Gods” to the primitive Sumerians as written in the relics.
Hemp was grown for fiber production for the war effort. The end product was ropes, sails and canvas for naval fleets. The Declaration of the United States of America is written on Hemp paper.
Hemp Uses are limitless
It would be much less to list where it cannot be used! It is most commonly used in clothing, shoes, canvas, netting, carpeting, brake linings, molded parts, insulation, hempcrete, animal bedding, compost, paper, printing paper, chemical absorbant, cardboard, packaging, protein powder, milk, birdseed, protein rich flour, salad oil, margarine supplements, erosion control, soap, shampoo, cosmetics, paint, print ink, lubricant, biofuel, carbon nano sheets, super capacitors, and the list goes on…
Hemps Natural Strength
A test in 2003 by Prasad and Sain demonstrated that the thinnest fibers of hemp with the maximum tensile strength (4200 MPa) is stronger than the steel variety with the highest tensile strength (3000 MPa).
Due to its extensive root system, hemp can contribute to reducing soil loss and erosion and is suitable for crop rotation (following potatoes and legumes and preceding both root crops and cereal grains).
One of the plants better suited for tolerating heavy metals is Cannabis sativa, commonly known as industrial hemp. Its potential usefulness in phytoremediation (remediation using plants, e.g. metallophilic plants) is attributed to the genome of this unique plant.
