Hemp, a genetic relative of marijuana, is used to make a wide range of products including food, cosmetics, and clothing.
The plant was originally gown in Central Asia thousands of years ago. Its fibers were used to make some of the first textiles and remained a popular option until the mid 19th century.
It was popular in the United States for the making of sailcloth and rope, but eventually lost its preferred position to synthetics and new manufacturing technologies.
Laws forbidding the planting of all cannabis plants were enacted in the 1950s. However, it is legal to consume, sell, or manufacture hemp products if they don’t contain THC, the Hallucinogenic element in marijuana that causes high.
It’s estimated that 40.5 million dollars worth of hemp products were sold in the US in 2010.
