Weird Facts About Hemp

There are many different types of THC and all of it is prohibited in many places especially here in UK. This means products like THC vape juice found in THC vape pens are against the law. 

Fortunately, for people looking to embrace cannabis, CBD is legal in many places. CBD pen is very similar to THC vape pens with one exception, they do not produce intoxicating effects. What you do get from a CBD vape pen is beneficial cannabinoids. There are different varieties of CBD that products are made from. It's a good idea to know the difference between them.
  • CBD isolate is 99% pure CBD with no THC. Do you know, What is a CBD isolate vape pen?
  • Broad-spectrum CBD has everything found in industrial hemp except THC.
  • Full-spectrum spectrum CBD contains everything found in industrial hemp including trace amounts of THC.
Industrial hemp is some rather impressive stuff. Most people are familiar with these three types of CBD products. But industrial hemp has all sorts of unique facts pertaining to it. Let's explore a little hemp history and learn some weird facts about hemp.

You Can Wear Hemp

Hemp makes more than just great CBD; it also makes great clothing too. The Council of Fashion Designers of America says, "Hemp is one of the strongest and most durable of all natural textile fibers. You could say it gets better with age! The more hemp is used the softer it gets. Hemp is resistant to UV light, mold, and mildew."

Need A Ride?

We've learned we can eat it and now we know we can wear it, but did you know you can use it to get where you're going? Not only could vehicles be made from hemp, but hemp could also power them. In 1941 a Ford Model T was created using bioplastic. The bioplastic was made of spruce pulp, flax, wheat, and hemp. The New York Times said the car was "lighter than fiberglass and 10 times tougher than steel." Taking it one step further is the 1941 Ford bioplastic Model T which was powered by an engine that ran on ethanol produced from agricultural waste of hemp.

Before the Days of Automobiles

Now we've learned that we can wear hemp and it could help us get where we're going. What if I told you the world as we know it wouldn't be the same without hemp? Industrial hemp was used to help expand empires across the globe and facilitate trade routes. Most early naval fleets utilised hemp for ropes and sails.

Keeping Those Boats Afloat

We've learned we can eat hemp, wear it, and use it to help us get where we're going, and that it helped establish all those places we love to go. Another neat fact about this versatile plant is not only was it used for rigging and sails, but hemp was also used to help keep boats afloat. Hemp was the second most utilised material in shipbuilding next to wood. Ship makers of the day would treat hemp with tar and utilise it to fill seams between planks on a wooden hull to help make ships watertight.

Hemp for Victory

The United States federal government made and released a black and white film titled "Hemp for Victory" in 1942 during World War II. This film encouraged American farmers to grow hemp and explained how hemp would help America win the war. After the war, the United States federal government denied the existence of this film until it was brought to the masses by a cannabis activist and author named Jack Herer.

Tens of Thousands of Uses

So far, we've learned hemp can do lots of things, but would you believe it if I told you hemp could do tens of thousands of other things? It is estimated that hemp could be used to build more than 25,000 different products. Even the luxury automobile maker BMW is starting to use hemp and other natural fibers to make composite parts.

Cleaner Land, Water, and Air

Industrial hemp has great potential as a phytoremediation tool. It has shown great results in helping to clean the soil, water, and air. It would almost seem that instead of asking what can hemp do, the question we should be asking is what can't hemp do?

As you can see, hemp is some rather hempsational stuff! Not only does industrial hemp stand to potentially help improve our health, but it also could help improve our planet if we let it.
