When these fibers are used for fabrics, the material lasts substantially longer than that made of cotton or other synthetic fabrics. Instead of wearing out and getting holes, they just break-in more and become more comfortable.
So that favorite pair of jeans, that always ends up with a hole in the worst area, would be a thing of the past. Your favorite jeans would just become more and more comfortable for much longer. Thus, saving you money in the long run.
Hemp fabric has the natural ability to wick moisture from the skin, making this ideal for making clothing items. There is also the bonus of the material being natural anti-fungal and anti-bacterial, which means no moldy mildew build-up, and no orders either.

Industrial hemp is not a new thing at all, this plant has a lot of history, dating back about 10,000 years. It may very well be the first plant grown and processed for textile fiber. This plant was adorned by many royals, and was used by all! Processing hemp is one of mankinds oldest forms of industry.
With agriculture not being “normal”, meaning that it was invented by mankind, and being a direct link to the start of civilization; in 1977 Carl Sagan proposed the idea that marijuana being one of the first agricultural crops, could very well be linked with the development of civilization.
Humans have been around for about 250,000 years, but agriculture is only around 10,000 years old. It is hard to believe we went that long without civilization! And to think that hemp/marijuana could be the start is really interesting, and quite astounding as to why or how it was ever considered a bad thing?
It was used for everything from food and medicine to ropes, sails, and paper. There was nothing this plant couldn’t be used for, and it quickly became a valuable trade commodity, as it was introduced worldwide.
To see a wonderful resource like that just die off, is a total shame. It makes you wonder, what happened? How could this plant possibly suffer such a downfall after being used so reliably for so many years.
The very first use of hemp can be traced back to an ancient Stone Age Village in Taiwan, off the coast of China. A lot of evidence supports it’s use, it was referred to as ma. Being able to decipher the ancient findings tells us that ma was used for food, medicine, hemp products, and believe it or not, to get high.
Don’t think they were just a bunch of stoners that couldn’t function though, it was actually frowned upon to just get “high”, it had to be your medicine, or have a spiritual purpose to be approved of.
China was one of the only countries using hemp for bow strings. Everyone else was using bamboo which didn’t compare to the trajectory and accuracy of the arrows shot with hemp made string. Thus giving a clear advantage above the enemy.
Also, in about 150 BC, the first paper made 100% from shredded hemp cloth and mulberry bark was made in China. Some of the oldest documents in existence come from a Buhdist Temple in China and are on handmade hemp paper.
Emperor Shen Nung, who was revered as the “Father of Chinese Medicine”, recommended using it for over 100 illnesses.
The seeds were used for food, while it was not a “mainstay”, like rice and mullet, the seeds were used like any other grain for years. Oils were also produced from the seeds to be used in cooking and other products as well.
China’s history with hemp is definitely the oldest in history!
Russia adapted to growing hemp very well since it’s introduction to the plant from China in the middle ages, finding an actual date has been rough! Nonetheless, it became a major cash crop for Russia.
Russia was the top producer of hemp since the 18 century, in the mid 1700’s they produced about 80% of Europe’s sails, ropes, nets, and other hemp-made equipment and supplies need for the ships, British shipping was almost totally reliant upon Russian Hemp, which cause Napoleon to start a hemp war.
He signed a Peace Treaty of Tilsit in 1807, with Tsar Alexander I, with the condition that there would be no trade with Great Britain, of whom Napoleon despised! France was hoping to cripple Great Britain with this treaty, but in the long run all failed and 4 years later Russia was trading with Great Britain again.
The history of hemp in the UK is almost as extensive as that of China, who introduced the UK to hemp. Cambri Formosa – a Celtic princess, who taught women how to weave and sew, is said to be the first mention of hemp in the UK, this was around 373 BC.
From the 16th century to the 19th century hemp flourished in the UK, due to its versatility of use. It was needed for outfitting ships with sails, ropes, nets, and more, and it was a very valuable trade commodity. The huge demand for hemp and the products made from it, created a boosted many coastal economies, and employed thousands!
This plant was grown in every single country in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, showing just how popular and in demand it was!
The huge demand for this crop eventually lead Henry VIII to enforce farmers to grow hemp. For every 60 acres of cultivated fields, a quarter was mandated to be hemp. It was in such demand that Britain’s American Colonies were mandated to grow hemp for the crown as well, which was later used against Great Britain.
As shipping costs declined the UK found it was cheap to buy hemp. Russia at the time had come up with better ways to harvest and process the plant, and provided it at a very affordable price, and the UK bought it. The Queen knew that even if the trade fell through, she could rely on her own farmers to keep up with the demand.
Eventually with new inventions, came new demands. There was less and less of a demand for hemp. With the growth of the cotton industry hemp took a major hit, as people wanted the softer feeling fabric that cotton provided. And cotton was easier and faster to process.
America made the price of cotton deceptively very cheap, using slaves to tend the fields. This was giving a cotton a head start on the competition with hemp, with cotton being so cheap, and people preferring the texture hemp was losing the battle. When slavery was abolished, cotton had already become known and preferred for everyday fabrics.
Hemp took the back seat with being used for uniforms, camping and military gear, and other such uses. But then was outlawed in 1928 when the war on drugs campaign began.
It wasn’t until 1993 that the UK legalized the growth and production of hemp.
Brought to the British Colonies in the early 1600’s, with the intentions of supplying the royal crown with the hemp grown. It was even mandatory to grow hemp, and you could use it to pay your taxes with. The nation’s founder’s were all growing and cultivating hemp as well.
Rumor has it, the first flags on our naval ships were made of hemp fabric, as no other fabric was strong enough to with stand the salty air the ships endured. The original drafts of The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution of the United States were both drafted on hemp paper, later to be copied onto other paper.
This all came to an abrupt end with anti-marijuana campaigns that lumped hemp right in with marijuana. This rendered both pants illegal pretty much worldwide. Hemp had some major competitors in the US market. Oil companies, cotton farmers, and paper mills, were the major ones.
A “smear campaign” swept the world, not just the United States. This campaign lumped hemp in with marijuana, the form of cannabis that gets you high, and falsely scared people from even wanting grow it.
There were films that said things like, it would make you psychotic and would be the end of civilization. These lies scared many people, and cotton had already taken hold of the American fiber economy so it was easy to push it the rest of the way out of the picture with a few “stories”.
The big oil companies and paper mills wanted to see hemp’s demise as it was now, their biggest competitor. Making it illegal was perfect for them, it did not matter that what they were saying was not true of hemp or marijuana for that fact.
The attempted revival of hemp during WWII ended as quickly as the campaign began. The U.S. government put out movies and fliers trying to get farmers to agree to grow hemp for the war. A lot of farmers agreed and signed contracts and all. This all ended when the war came to an unexpected end and left farmers with broken contracts and empty pockets.
You can legally purchase and use Hemp CBD Oil in all 50 states, marijuana is a different story! Each state has it’s own laws, and it is still not federally legal.
People have again, begun to realize what hemp can do for our society, and that it is not dangerous or threatening in any way. It could actually help a lot of our current environmental issues fairly quickly.
Industrial hemp’s heritage has been linked as far back as the beginning of civilization, and possibly accredited for it as well, according to Carl Sagan.
For this plant to have such a rich history at one point, it saddens me to see how few people even know what it looks like, or any of it’s potential uses. It was intended for us to be using it in our everyday lives, God put these plants here for a reason!
Talk about a renewable resource! Hemp is the fastest growing renewable resource we have at our disposal, and yet, we do nothing with it, compared to what we should do with it, which is everything possible.
This is a huge issue as we are loosing honey bees at an alarming rate due to pesticides. Hemp requires no use of pesticides as it grows so fast, and does not attract pests. But it does attract honey bees!
It is a huge part of the “Circle of Life” and should be recognized for all the good it can do.
I would love to hear your opinion on this topic. Please feel free to leave a comment below, and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
As of right now there are some hemp made plastics available on the market. The more laws we change the more hemp made plastic products you will see. You will see an increase in many hemp products, not just plastic.
Most of the progress that I have seen with hemp products have come from California and Colorado. Colorado is in the lead for plastics as of right now too.
This is a screenshot from my phone to show that Colorado is leading the way with this! All it takes to start saving our planet is changing some laws and growing some hemp! We have the geniuses to create our products that we need already!! They are bored and need something to do too!
Right now most of our hemp products are either imported or the hemp fiber is imported so the product can be made. This is way more expensive of a production than need be. And creates higher prices for the consumer in the long run, how crazy is that!?!
If we grew our own hemp the cost of production would drop significantly, and we would have more American made products on our shelves at better prices for the consumer, that are better for the environment. And they would help significantly improve our economy as well. That is clearly a win win for the United States.
There are quite a few companies that are using hemp in their plastics and composite materials. The uses vary depending on the need as with any material.
Ford, GM, BMW, and quite a few other car manufacturers use hemp in the creation of the interior plastic door panels and more. Pretty much anything that is hard plastic inside and out. Your gas cap probably contains hemp products and all the fixtures around the lights that are plastic.
There are building supplies that contain hemp like the molded sinks and bathtubs. PVC could be made from hemp, and should be with as much is used in the construction of one house or office building alone!
The screenshot I provided above is the first I have heard of clear plastics like water bottles and straws, which are two of the major environmental crusades right now, and rightfully so! This is why we need to change some laws, I should be able to find a bunch of hemp made plastic items available. You can reach the company’s website at www.growhempcolorado.com
Hemp Made Plastics Could Help The Environment A Lot
Our oceans are so filled with plastics and other crap that just won’t biodegrade. It washes up on beaches, and if you are out in the ocean you can come across mass collections of plastic bottles and junk that is just there forever, I guess. It was not there in the past, before these harmful petroleum based plastics were created!
No matter what we change to making our plastics out of we still have to remember to recycle, it is still important! Even with totally biodegradable plastics, at the rate we use them and dispose of them, we would be facing issues without recycling. They may not be as alarming, but issues are issues.
I will be researching more on this topic as it is just as important at the fuel and paper.
Please feel free to leave a comment about this article. I will get back to you as soon as possible, I love a great discussion.
Hemp seed oil is one of the best oils for healthy skin and hair, who would have guessed that?
If we use this in our diet and as a topical, it would provide supreme skin and hair conditions! The essential fatty acids and amino acids are at a perfect balance for the human body, inside and out.
We have what we call essential fats, these are not created by our bodies but we need them. And we have the non-essential fats, these are created by our bodies, but we need more of them on average than what we create. Hemp seed oils contain these at a perfect balance for our internal and external use.
This oil is very a great skin and hair moisturizer and it is more absorbent than either olive or avocado oils. Also, hemp oil has natural anti-inflammatory properties, and an abundance of vitamin E, it will give your skin a more youthful look with fewer wrinkles.
This makes for a wonderful make-up remover and facial cleanser. The reasons for this are quite simple really. Hemp oil is very nourishing for your skin, and it doesn’t remove any of the natural oils you need for fighting bacteria, and we all know that bacteria is the main cause of acne. Basically, it balances the hydration of your skin so you don’t get the bacteria build up under dead skin which can cause acne.
With hemp skin and hair care products it does not matter what your ethnic background is, this product will work for you. You have to buy one that is suited for your individual needs as with any product. Each person does have their own hair and skin needs after all.
Out of all the products available, that I have tried, so far my favorite brand is Hempz. They have an assortment of products and fragrances on Amazon. I find a lot of great deals on Amazon, they have great prices, wonderful shipping, and superb customer service!
You can buy many forms of Hempz skin and hair products, I have a few here for you to check out. If you like any of them just follow the link and you can buy one or more of them.
Hempz Shampoo & Conditioner
This shampoo is made with 100% pure natural hemp seed oil and leaves your hair shiny and manageable. My hair is very course, so for a shampoo to make it feel soft is amazing to me! I don’t even have a water softener, but my hair feels like I do. This quite possibly is the best shampoo and conditioner I have ever used.
I prefer the Sweet Pineapple & Honey Melon Volumizing Shampoo & Conditioner for the fragrance. It is not over powering at all, just gentle and refreshing. It leaves my hair very shiny and soft, silky feeling really. My hair doesn’t feel weighted down, just all bouncy and nice!
So far after a week of use (5 washings), I have noticed that washing my hair on a daily basis did not seem to dry it out as other shampoos do and the conditioner did not weigh it down or make it feel greasy too soon. My hair has been quite manageable and in seemingly better condition after just one week!
I am going to continue using this product and let you know more on updates, and if I try other scents.
Hempz Body Wash & Body Moisturizers
Oh boy, I found the matching body wash and after bath oil to the Sweet Pineapple & Honey Melon Shampoo & Conditioner! This completed my set and doesn’t leave me with combating aromas at the end of my showering.
The body wash really makes you feel clean and soft too, with a very pleasant aroma! Finishing up with the matching body oil was the icing on the cake! I also have very dry skin to go along with my course hair, so finding a great body wash and after shower body moisturizer is essential for me.
If I do not use any lotions or oils, my skin will ash up and crack, and sometimes bleed, so I try to keep it moisturized, and so far this has been the best product for lasting moisturizing! I will continue to give updates on the performance of this product.
This is a sweet holiday deal or any time of the year deal really! You get the Sweet Pineapple & Honey Melon Body Wash, Body Lotion, and Lip Balm all for only $29.99! That is an amazing deal! Click the link to take advantage, and notice that if you are an Amazon Prime member there are buying bonuses as well!
I am a line cook for a living, if you are not sure what that means, I will explain. I work at a restaurant, and I am the grill cook, I have what is called a flat-top, and a char-broiler, on the flat-top I cook many items from fish to thinly sliced steak and on the grill I cook burgers, chicken, and salmon. It’s easiest to say that I cook a variety of foods and I usually go home feeling pretty greasy.
So I need a body wash that works! Also, I follow up with a moisturizer that does not clog my pores. I have found exactly what I have been looking for with these products.
This Really Is A Plant For Mankind
We are getting to know our hemp products fairly well by now, and I think it is fair safe to say that, we have been getting the shaft for some time now!
With our country having well over 30 million miles of roads to drive on, and the amount of people we have driving on them; we should be thinking about the fuel that goes into our gas tanks, and what it is putting into our air.
We all know, or should know by now, that the petroleum fuels are very harmful to our environment, and our own health. Which leads me to wondering why we as consumers have not demanded a safer fuel much sooner.
The technology for making bio fuels is not new at all. As a matter of fact, the very first diesel engine invented by Rudolf Diesel was made to run on peanut oil that he made as well. He displayed his invention at the World Exhibition in Paris in 1900, that’s well over 100 years ago people!
Instead of using fuels made of vegetables, we somehow ended up with petroleum based fuel instead. Big money in the wrong hands can create very evil things is all I can say.
Hemp Diesel Really?
Yes you can make diesel fuel from hemp just like any vegetable or nut. I am not a scientist at all, but I don’t have to be to say that we should be using a renewable resource that is non-invasive to our planet, to make our fuel from.
Biodiesel is the only type of alternative fuel that can run conventional, unmodified diesel engines without creating issues.
It is as biodegradable as sugar and less toxic than salt, so it can be stored anywhere and is very safe to transport. Petroleum fuels cannot make these claims. The flash point for this fuel is 300 degrees versus petroleum’s 125 degree flash point.
This fuel is 11% oxygen by weight and has absolutely no sulfur in it. Using this fuel can extend the life of your diesel engine because it is more lubricating than it’s petroleum counter part.
I was surprised to find out that you can just dump hemp oil into your diesel tank, just the way it comes from the press. I would have thought there had to be more processing involved.
I got my information from cannopycorp.com, they are a company that is dedicated to developing Industrial Hemp in all aspects. They are involved with developing hemp in many ways including foods, bio fuels, plastics, construction materials, and phyto chemicals studies and productions.
Ethanol Made of Hemp Too!
While the biodiesel is made from the seed of the plant, ethanol is made from the stalk fermenting. Through gasification, acid hydrolysis, and enzyme processes hemp can be made into ethanol and methanol. Yeah that’s a mouth full for me to, say it ten times real fast.
All joking aside, this fuel is a wonderful replacement for ethanol. You will not need to modify your vehicles gas engine at all to use it either.
Hemp beats out corn in making methanol, it can make 10x more than corn, corn is the leader in bio fuels right now, but Industrial Hemp is a much better source, and can be grown without the use of pesticides. This is good news to our poor honey bees that are dying off at rapid rates due to pesticides.
We all know that the petroleum fuels are putting carbon monoxide into our air at rapid rates. Well Bio fuels like Industrial Hemp, help to maintain the natural balance of the earth’s natural 02 andCO2 levels.
With the new laws being passed legalizing the use of Indutrial Hemp, in turn it gives the right to grow hemp back to the American farmers. Industrial Hemp could very well become the new fuel of the world. Not to mention all the other products that can be made with this wonderful plant.
Using oil lamps is an old school thing of course, but did you know that hemp seed oil can be used as lamp oil as well. Our Declaration of Independence and Constitution of the United States was drafted on hemp paper, and more than likely the oil used to fuel the lamp for light was hemp oil.
It is said to illuminate a room better than any other lamp oil. And the cook off is probably a lot more pleasant than other oils as well. Used with a hemp wick it was probably a cleaner burning combination than what is used now.
My mom used oil lamps when I was a kid, she kept them around for the power outages and what not. I have no clue what was in the oils we burned freely in our living room and bedrooms, I can bet you my whole paycheck that it was not hemp oil! And we did not have the hemp wicks either. I do know that when set close to a wall, the smoke turned the walls black.
I have been searching for a motor oil made from hemp seed and so far I have not found one. I keep getting turned back to the bio diesel. Hemp Oil is said to be more lubricating in the engine than petroleum fuels. I will keep up my search on this one.
Okay, so we are all adults here, did you know that they are making lubrication for sex from hemp seed oil. Apparently this has been in practice for some time now, in past years it was combined with animal fat to create sexual lubricants. Honestly I had no clue what-so-ever.
The reviews I read say it is slippery, and does not get that sticky feeling that other lubricants leave you with. Rather, it leaves your skin smooth and almost silky, with no odors to mingle with our natural aroma.
Then there are the health and beauty lotions and oils made from hemp as well. These lotions claim to not only soften the skin, but also to be a naturally anti-aging agent as well.
As to which, this I can say, I love my hemp lotion and after shower/bath oil. I get compliments on how young I look all the time. I am 45 years young and very proud of every year of it! Most women are ashamed or embarrassed of their age, NOT ME!
It is beginning to make so much sense as to why the competitors felt the need to shut down the growth and production of Industrial Hemp. Hemp was just to well know, too reliable and renewable, and had way too many uses for them to compete with.
Thank heavens times are changing! People across the world are starting to see through the lies we have been blinded with for so many years. The world being told that hemp and marijuana are dangerous to our society and mankind as a whole, that’s just the biggest crock I have ever heard!
Whereas these competitors of Industrial Hemp, used lies and fear to get the public to stop using Industrial Hemp, I want to persuade people to use Industrial Hemp with the truth. I do my research to find facts.
One fact that I have found is that the 100% hemp car supposedly built by Henry Ford isn’t quite all the stories claim. Firstly it is not 100% hemp, there are many other materials that were used as well, and the car was never finished.
Not saying anything bad here, I just don’t want people to be mislead. I want people to make a clear and honest decision about using Industrial Hemp, not one filled with myths and lies.
In recent times there has been a car body that is made of 100% hemp, that also runs on hemp fuel. Jay Leno drove it on his show “Jay Leno’s Garage”. This car body is said to be more durable than any car on the market today, and lighter as well.
This vehicle was made by Bruce Dietzen a retired Dell executive. Bruce created this car in 2017 and named it Renew. Bruce was inspired by Ford’s hemp vehicle creation, and took it a step further, he drives his.
I am fascinated with every search that I do on Industrial Hemp and it’s uses. I encourage everyone to do some research on this topic. I am sure you will be quite stunned as to what you find as well.
I would love to hear what you think on this topic, and the general theme of my page. Please feel free to enter a comment and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
