HISTORY AND POWER OF HEMP
The first evidence of Hemp use was in modern day Taiwan. Pottery in an ancient village site contained cords of hemp. The village dates back nearly 12,000 years so hemp/cannabis is one of the first cases of human agriculture. Some scientists suggest hemp/cannabis could be the first agricultural crop, which would mean hemp helped develop civilization itself.
The next case of hemp use is in 6,000 BC China. Back then, hemp seeds were pressed for oil which was used for cooking or as a salad dressing. Also, seeds were roasted or eaten raw as a snack. A similar case of hemp seed use was recently discovered in Japan. Furthermore, the Japanese seeds dated back 10,000 years, giving us insight on the first nutritional use of hemp/cannabis. Hemp/cannabis was used for medicinal purposes as early as 2737 B.C. First, Emperor Shen Neng of China was recorded prescribing hemp/cannabis tea to treat gout, rheumatism, malaria
and even poor memory.
Hemp has been around since the Settlers in North America brought hemp seeds with them and began cultivating the crop in Jamestown around 1616. Again, the settlers used the hemp fibers for clothing, building materials, sails, and weapons. In 1619 The Virginia Assembly established that all citizens were required to grow hemp. The plant was even accepted as legal tender in Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Maryland. By 1776 hemp was cultivated in Kentucky. After the use of cannabis was banned in the United States, World War II began in Europe. When America entered the war, industrial efforts to supply the American war effort surged. The need for uniforms, marine cords, and parachutes required durable materials that the United
States lacked—if only there was a plant that produced the inputs needed to make these supplies. Industrial hemp made its return.
The medical uses of hemp oil extend comes from the small seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant, and have a rich profile of nutrients, fatty acids, and useful bioactive compounds, which may help with certain health issues, such as inflammation, skin irritation, sleep, anxiety and many more.
