So what is Hemp?
Well you better sit down girls and boys, grab a cone light it up and read the history Uncle Stingo is about to tell you.
Once upon a time in a land not so far from here with a big arse wall lived a man known as Emperor Shen Nung. The Emperor was a man that ruled China in about the time of 2700 BC. Now the Emperor you see was the first world ruler where written recorded evidence shows that he was fond of a particular plant which has so many outstanding qualities, yes that right the same plant your coughing as you read this, Cannabis Sativa.
Yo! Slow down there don’t get to excited and start trying to light up that fresh Tee you just got off the website, you just can’t get high of Hemp it doesn’t work. Bummer we know but let Uncle Stingo tell you why?
Hemp is made from the stalks of the Cannabis Sativa plant which only contains roughly 0.3% or below of the psychoactive compound known as THC. The fibres are separated then spun into yarn and woven or knitted into fabric.
History shows the Emperor wasn’t the only ruler who knew how to get it on by using Cannabis. King Henry VIII, saw how the material hemp can be used to make sailing ships because of its strong nature and salt resistant qualities. Leading to hemp being used to manufacture sails, ropes, decks and more! King Henry did not want the country to run dry of this magic plant so he ordered a law, in 1535, enforcing every citizen to plant a patch of hemp on their lawn (if only our politicians had the same approach and toke as the Emperor).
In fact, Hemp is so old that the American constitution, the first pair of levis jeans, canvas and many other materials we know today is made from it.
