Discover the Difference Nature Makes
Hemp is all the new "rage" but did you know that hemp has been used for centuries? It's not new; it IS making a come back!
Is hemp the same as marijuana? NO! They are from the same plant family, but are not the same. Hemp oil has lower concentrations of THC and higher concentrations of cannabidiol (CBD), which decreases or eliminates its psychoactive effects. Coach Naturals offers THC free versions of hemp oil for wellness support.
Hemp is used for food (seeds), industrial purposes (fiber and rope), building material, and paper. Hemp was possibly one of the earliest plants to be cultivated.
Hemp was used in Israel during the 2nd century and in medieval Germany. Samuel Champlain reported the use of grass and hemp clothing by the Wampanoag people of Cape Cod in July 1605. Additionally, the Nauset people of Plymouth Bay told Champlain they harvested hemp in their region where it grew wild to a height of 4 to 5 ft. Hemp was used in Taiwan for over 10,000 years. The Chinese character for hemp depicts two plants under a shelter.
What about Hemp usage in the United States?
Wikipedia says, "Hemp was made illegal to grow without a permit in the U.S. under the Controlled Substances Act passed in 1970 because of its relation to marijuana, and any imported hemp products must meet a zero tolerance level. Some states have made the cultivation of industrial hemp legal, but farmers in many states have not yet begun to grow it because of resistance from the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, making "large-scale hemp growing" in the United States "not viable" as late as 2013. In 2013, after the legalization of cannabis in the state, several farmers in Colorado planted and harvested several acres of hemp, bringing in the first hemp crop in the United States in over half a century. Colorado, Vermont, California, and North Dakota have passed laws enabling hemp licensure. All four states are waiting for permission to grow hemp from the DEA. Currently, Oregon has licensed industrial hemp as of August 2009. Congress included a provision in the Agricultural Act of 2014 that allowed colleges and state agencies to grow and conduct research on hemp in states where it is legal. Hemp production in Kentucky, formerly the United States' leading producer, resumed in 2014. Hemp production in North Carolina resumed in 2017, and in Washington State the same year. By the end of 2017, at least 34 U.S. states had industrial hemp programs. In 2018, New York began taking strides in industrial hemp production, along with hemp research pilot programs at Cornell University, Binghamton University and SUNY Morrisville.
