The Hemp Plant

  Hemp – also called industrial hemp. Hemp can be grown as a renewable source for raw materials that can be incorporated into thousands of products. Its seeds and flowers are used in health food, organic body care, and other nutraceuticals. The fibers and stalks are used in hemp clothing, construction materials, paper, biofuel, plastic composites, and more. Hemp requires much less water to grow – and no pesticides – so it is much more environmentally friendly than traditional crops.
