Industrial Hemp - The Wonder Plant

I spend a lot of time on this blog discussing the wonders of the drug marijuana, but I don't spend much time on the plant itself. The plant has two forms, the kind that is usable as a drug, and industrial hemp. Under current laws in Canada and the US both are prohibited or very strictly regulated to the point of effective prohibition, however one has to wonder why considering the uses of industrial hemp. Hemp is one of the few plants where every part of the plant is usable.

The seeds are an excellent source of nutrients. They can be converted into oils that replenish the bodies natural oils, and in fact hemp oil is the only oil that can penetrate every layer of human skin.

The stalks contain strong fibers that can be made into pretty much anything. Depending on how it is processed you can make a material that is nearly as fine as silk, or a strong coarse fiber used for rope making.

Of course, as with any plant cannabis filters carbon out of the air, but cannabis is particularly effective at it. So legalizing industrial hemp means cleaner air.

Implementing cannabis into a crop rotation means a better yield for whatever crop you plant in rotation because cannabis revitalizes the soil.

Add on to this legalizing industrial hemp will have no effect on the drug trade. Industrial hemp contains less then 0.3% THC, while the plant that is used for the drug contains at least 2% THC.
