HEMP FACTS
~History~
•Hemp is among the oldest industries on the planet, going back more than 10,000 years to the beginnings of pottery. The oldest relic of human industry is a bit of hemp fabric dating back to approximately 8,000 BC.

•George Washington and Thomas Jefferson both grew hemp. Ben Franklin owned a mill that made hemp paper. Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence on hemp paper. Americans were legally bound to grow hemp during the Colonial Era and Early Republic.

•In 1937, Congress passed the Marihuana Tax Act which effectively began the era of hemp prohibition. Most Western countries distinguish industrial hemp from marijuana on the basis of THC (the main intoxicant in marijuana) content and permit the growing of non-psychoactive low-THC hemp for fiber and seed. The U.S. is the only major industrialized nation that prohibits the growing and processing of hemp. Hemp cannot be commercially grown in the United States because it is erroneously confounded with marijuana. In fact, industrial hemp and marijuana are different breeds of Cannabis sativa, just as Chihuahuas and St. Bernards are different breeds of Canis familiaris.

~Facts~
•Hemp is anti-microbial, anti-mildew, naturally UV resistant, and readily takes on eco-safe plant-based dyes.

•Hemp softens with each washing, without fiber degradation. As the saying goes: “Hemp doesn’t wear out, it wears in.”

•All products made solely from hemp fiber are biodegradable, compostable and recyclable. As such, they are easy on landfills.

•Hemp is environmentally friendly in every way. Hemp can displace cotton which is usually grown with massive amounts of chemicals harmful to people and the environment. 50% of all the world's pesticides are sprayed on cotton.

•Hemp can displace wood fiber and save forests for watershed, wildlife habitat, recreation and oxygen production, carbon sequestration (reduces global warming), and other values.

•Hemp can yield 3-8 dry tons of fiber per acre. This is four times what an average forest can yield.

•Hemp grows well in a variety of climates and soil types. It is naturally resistant to most pests, precluding the need for pesticides. It grows tightly spaced, out-competing any weeds, so herbicides are not necessary. It also leaves a weed-free field for a following crop. Hemp is also a natural weed suppressor due to fast growth of the canopy.

•Used for thousands of years by a wide variety of cultures, hemp is currently being used worldwide in industries such as fabric, food, medicine, bio-diesel fuel, paper, plastics, rope, building material, molded panels, car components, wallpaper, acoustic baffling and barn bedding for farm animals.

~How can I help?~
•The best way to show legislators and the public that hemp is a great environmental and economic commodity is to buy hemp products! Nothing talks like money. As the market grows, so does general interest. You can also contact your legislators, educate others and be an ongoing advocate.

•It is time to clear up the misunderstanding, change the law, and clear the way for ecologically sustainable, economically viable opportunities for American farmers and businesses!

“Make the most of Indian Hemp seed and sow it everywhere.”
-George Washington, 1794

Arrived super quick! Hard to think of her as a vendor when she treats you like a friend. She does perfect work as usual, I love wearing it! Only person I'll ever order from, and you should too.

About

It all ties together

It was a rainy day on our family vacation to Ocean Shores, WA in 1998. My mom had put in "Kujo" (knowing how much my strange little self loved horror movies) and started popping some popcorn. My baby sister was napping, quiet for the time being.
That's when my friend and I decided we were bored. This was a vacation after all, we wanted to do something new! After brainstorming with my mom, she came up with an idea to pass the time. She took us to a bead store that was nearby and we all picked out our own bead. My friend picked a cat bead, my little sister chose a bird, and I picked out a dog bead.
When we got back to where we were staying my mom got out some hemp cord and began to show us this interesting craft of tying knots, over and over, until it becomes something new! A skill she learned from her own mother.
I'd always loved making new things, but this was something I'd never done before. I felt the repetitive knotting motions soothing me as I slowly watched my little dog bracelet come to life. When I was done, I can remember looking down at my very first hemp macrame project, with all it's messy, loose knots thinking "Awesome! Let's make more!"

    I grew up in the Seattle area of Washington, climbing trees, catching bugs, and building forts. Creativity has been a necessary part of everyday life for me for as long as I can remember. I've always enjoyed creating something new with my hands!

★★HEMP FACTS★★

✔George Washington and Thomas Jefferson both grew hemp. Ben Franklin owned a mill that made hemp paper. Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence on hemp paper.

✔Construction products such as medium density fiber board, oriented strand board, and even beams, studs and posts can be made out of hemp. Because of hemp's long fibers, the products are stronger and/or lighter than those made from wood.

✔Hemp is NOT the same thing as Marijuana, and definitely cannot get you "high".

✔Hemp fibers are longer, stronger, more absorbent and more mildew-resistant than cotton.

✔Hemp can be made into fine quality paper. The long fibers in hemp allow such paper to be recycled several times more than wood-based paper.

✔Hemp can displace cotton which is usually grown with massive amounts of chemicals harmful to people and the environment. 50% of all the world's pesticides are sprayed on cotton.

✔Hemp can displace wood fiber and save forests for watershed, wildlife habitat, recreation and oxygen production, carbon sequestration (reduces global warming), and other values.

✔Hemp can yield 3-8 dry tons of fiber per acre. This is four times what an average forest can yield.

✔Because of its low lignin content, hemp can be pulped using less chemicals than with wood. Its natural brightness can obviate the need to use chlorine bleach, which means no extremely toxic dioxin being dumped into streams. A kinder and gentler chemistry using hydrogen peroxide rather than chlorine dixoide is possible with hemp fibers.
