A Wee Bit of Hemp History
Wee may think of hemp as the new & latest thing on the market but in actual fact our relationship with hemp goes back much, much further.
The roots of hemp extend back thousands of years; to the end of the first ice age. Archaeological finds suggest that Cannabis Sativa, was likely one of the first agricultural crops planted by early man.
In fact, growing Cannabis Sativa, something we tend to think of as modern, is often associated with the birth of agriculture 12,000 to 10,000 years ago.
In China as early as 6,000 BCE, both the seeds and oil were used for food.
Two thousand years later, in 4,000 BCE, there is evidence of textiles made from hemp used in both China and Turkestan.
In 850, the Vikings transported hemp rope and seeds to Iceland.
By the year 900, Arabs were learning techniques for making paper from hemp.
By 1000, Italians were using ropes made of hemp on their sailing ships.
The influence of the plant seems to have been global.
Today, consumers are primarily interested in the healthful properties of cannabis compounds, and there is a long thread of cannabis applications for healing running through all eras of history.
Greek philosophers, Herodotus, Napoleon and other legendary figures told stories about the healing properties of cannabis.
The physician for Nero’s army included cannabis in his medical inventory.
In 1563, the medicinal benefits of cannabis were discussed in a report by Portuguese physician Garcia da Orta.
A few years later, China's Li Shih-Chen documented the antibiotic and anti-nausea effects of cannabis.
King Henry VIII actually fined farmers if they DID NOT raise hemp for industrial use.
Less than one hundred years later, settlers in Jamestown, Virginia -The New World- began growing hemp plants for hemp’s unusually strong fibre. Once the plant demonstrated its usefulness, it became illegal to NOT grow hemp in Virginia.
By 1850, Cannabis was added to list of The U.S Pharmacopeia, a respected compendium of Medicines and Dietary Supplements.
That same year, cannabis was used throughout United States as a medicinal drug and could easily be purchased in pharmacies and general stores. This lasted until about 1915.
It's also worth adding that hemp for almost two decades, has been growing in the abandoned Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the Ukraine as it actually helps to reduce the soil toxicity. It literally sucks toxins out of the soil & pollution out of the air cleaning the whole environment, now what other crop does that?
