What is it and why should we care?
Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis Sativa plant. Nope, not the variety you can smoke (see our FAQ for science chat). It would be like smoking blades of grass. Pointless right? Myth busted.
Okay… let’s continue.
Hemp is specifically grown for its sustainable commercial uses. In other words, every single part of the plant can be used to benefit us and Mother Earth. Zero Wastage. Apparently it has thousands of uses but we don’t have the time to type them all out (we’re too busy making delicious m*lk obv), but see our cute diagram below.
In other words it’s a super-plant that Mother Earth would want us to use!
