Hemp is not only even more robust than corn, which is considered one of the most vigorous crops on the planet, but it also requires less water, pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizer to flourish. Plus, it is said to have almost 25,000 known purposes, which include being used as a raw material in everything from paper and textile manufacturing to the production of biofuels, plastic composites, and livestock feed.
These are only some of the most widespread applications, however. Derivatives of the plant are also common in personal care products and foods, with hemp seeds and oil fast becoming favoured by many. Currently, the most lucrative and exciting aspect of this industry is its association with CBD oil, which doesn’t contain THC and can therefore be produced from hemp and cannabis plants alike.
