Hemp and cannabis are not the same thing. While they are similar, they do not share the characteristic that all potheads are after -- getting high. Hemp doesn't get the user high and will instead, give you a massive headache if you try to smoke it. While some people pay little to no attention to the hemp side of the family, it is probably the most beneficial part of the plant to our economy. Not only would it spare the trees but it would improve the overall health of the earth where ever it was planted. In addition, hemp can provide many different industrial necessities that we currently make with more harmful products.
Hemp needs far less space to grow than trees. It grows faster, without pesticides, and doesn't really need the help of humans. It is a weed and it really acts as such, flourishing wherever there is soil to grow. The plant grows fast, sprouting up in months as compared to years it takes to grow trees. The roots grow very deep, aerating the soil and allowing future crops to flourish in the nutrient rich dirt left by the hemp plants. Since the roots of the hemp plant are so brutal, they also choke the life out of smaller weeds trying to overtake the garden.
The stalks of the plant are incredibly important to industrial business. The strong fibers provide an amazing material that can be used to make clothing, paper, diapers, denim, and other fabrics as well as paper products ranging all the way from printer paper to billboards and banners. And that's just the beginning. The stalk can also be made in to things like rope, nets, canvas, tarps, brake and clutch lining in vehicles, and carpets. And it's not just the stalk that people can use to their benefit. Looking for a dogbed? You can get one made from the leaves of the hemp plant. Working on a project at home? Maybe building a gazebo or pool? Hemp can be made in to concrete, insulation, and mortar/stucco, giving it even more versatility in our crazy world.
The list goes on to include the fact that hempseed is incredibly beneficial to human health, creating a better working system without our bodies. Hempseed oil could replace things like butter, food supplements, and cooking oil. Creams made from hempseed are said to help assist with aging, facial lines, and skin condition likes rashes and eczema. The benefits of this plant are endless and since it has been illegal for so long, we honestly don't even know about the full potential that hemp has to offer. With more research, hemp may end up taking over our entire industrialized society, creating a more fine-tuned (and functional) machine.
