When it comes to Industrial Hemp, it can be tough knowing where to begin.
It has something to offer for everybody - and that’s no exaggeration! Are you looking for eco-friendly clothing, chemical-free skincare products, or an incredibly reliable source of protein for your vegan diet? We think Hemp might just be the answer.
For over 20,000 years, Humans have domesticated this plant to provide for growing civilisations. One question - why did we stop growing Hemp?
Well, we all know why. Hemp’s the relation to ‘Marijuana’, the potent flower that produces high amounts of the psychoactive compound ‘THC’ is supposedly why. A second question - Why did we outlaw the entire plant, not just the compound?
We may never know. However, with modern revelations, it’s more important than ever to understand the different varieties.
Hemp and Marijuana are two different breeds of the same plant. It’s a bit of a complicated topic, but we break it down a bit more in our blog about Hemp and Marijuana’s difference.
1. Industrial Hemp = A Plant with under 0.3-1% THC (Depending on the country and state)
2. ‘Marijuana’/Medical cannabis = Any plant with over 1% THC Content. At this point, anything with more than 1% THC is considered medical or illegal cannabis.
We found Hemp through a pathway that began with looking for non-synthetic alternatives to everyday products. Once we became obsessed with the variety of products that we could make from Hemp, we took it upon ourselves to spread the word! For the last 20 years, we’ve been striving to serve the Australian hemp industry with high-quality hemp products that you know and trust.
