The History of Hemp

Hemp has been used throughout history in many cultures around the world.

From ancient China & Taiwan in 2700 B.C., spreading east to Korea & Japan, continuing west to India through a chain of countries such as Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Thailand.

Around 1200 B.C. hemp arrived in ancient Egypt, and eventually found its way to the American continent and quickly became a high demand commodity.

Farmers were not only encouraged to grow hemp- it became the law for every farmer to grow the plant on their lands.

Hemp has been used throughout history to make rope for ships, paper for merchant trades, fabric for clothing, seeds & oils for food.
