Did you know every July, we celebrate one of the most amazing and versatile plants - HEMP!
Hemp plants have been around for a long time. They have been mentioned in early Indian scriptures more than 10,000 years ago. However hemp plants have also been mired in controversy and even exiled as they are often mistaken for their intoxicating cousin, Marijuana. Now, legal advancements are changing how people view and access hemp. Also careful breeding and selection have given rise to cultivars exceptionally low in the chemical compounds considered intoxicating. National Hemp Month offers an occasion to rediscover hemp and its usefulness for both people and the environment.
