This is not what you think it is, this is Hemp. A plant that is used to make a variety of commercial and industrial products, including textiles, clothing, shoes, food, paper, bioplastics, insulation, and biofuel.


Hemp provides relief from everyday stress and anxiousness, promotes feelings of calm, supports healthy immune function, and helps with sleep.


It's also becoming a popular ingredient across the cosmetic industry as it's said to help promote healthy skin and nourishing it.


Hemp is one of the strongest natural fibres. It’s like the fibre of the cannabis plant so meaning hemp and marijuana belong to the same family but the former is like a raw material used to produce clothes, food, biofuel, cosmetics among others.


China is the biggest producer of HEMP in the World. In 2017, it produced hemp worth 1.7 billion USD.

When oxidized (often erroneously referred to as "drying") hemp oil from the seeds becomes solid and can be used in the manufacture of oil-based paints, in creams as a moisturizing agent, for cooking, and in plastics. Hemp seeds have been used in bird feed mix as well.


Hemp seeds can also be made into a liquid and used for baking or beverages such as hemp milk and tisanes. Hemp oil is cold-pressed from the seed and is high in unsaturated fatty acids.


The bast fibres can be used to make textiles that are 100% hemp, but they are commonly blended with other fibres, such as flax, cotton or silk, as well as virgin and recycled polyester, to make woven fabrics for apparel and furnishings.
