Hemp is legally defined as a cannabis sativa L plant with less than 0.3% THC. In addition to producing cannabinoids like CBD & CBG, it can be grown specific for more than 25,000 uses including construction materials, clothing, biofuels, bioplastic and more. It provides a sustainable cost effective alternative in these industries.
So why aren't more things made out of hemp right now? Federal prohibition of growing and processing hemp was in place in the United States from 1937 - 2018 making hemp limited to being an imported item.
Passing of the 2018 Farm Bill opened the way for hemp to once again become a valuable crop for multiple supply chains. However, processing of hemp for uses outside of CBD has only just begun. Time will tell how this amazing plant disrupts consumer goods.
