These are the most newsworthy benefits of industrial hemp corporate media won’t teach you about.
Although the negative stigma associated with cannabis has lessened in recent years – especially since THC- and CBD-rich oils were found to be a powerful aid in fighting cancer – it still hasn’t garnered full support from the public.
This is unfortunate, as hemp is one of the most versatile (and longest cultivated) crops on the planet and can be used for a variety of practical and economical uses. According to some sources, the crop is humanity’s answer to creating a cleaner energy source that can replace nuclear power, removing radioactive water from the soil, and eliminating smog from skies in industrialized areas. In addition, nationwide hemp production (which creates more oxygen than standard crops) could eliminate deforestation by converting current paper to hemp paper, which can be recycled up to 8 times. Compare this to wood pulp, which is only recyclable up to 3 times. Finally, hemp seeds are incredibly nutritious and can even serve as a suitable feed for animals and livestock.
