Hemp…What's old is new again! An article from the National Hemp Association had some surprising facts about hemp today and yesterday, for example: "Hemp is thought to be the first domestically-cultivated plant, with evidence of hemp fabric dating to 8,000 years ago found in Turkey (former-day Mesopotamia). Other evidence suggests cultivation further back by two or more thousands of years. Hemp paper is stronger than wood-based paper; it has strongest natural fiber of any source; it can grow nearly anywhere in the world, in many types of soil; it can grow without pesticides; it is a high-yield crop. (One acre of hemp produces twice as much oil as one acre of peanuts, and nearly four times as much fiber pulp [or paper] as an acre of trees. Levi jeans were originally made from hemp sailcloth (and rivets), for goldminers in California, who would fill their pockets with gold." And "because of its strength hemp fiber can be used for composite materials to make anything from skateboard decks to stealth fighter bodies". Furthermore, increasing demand for hemp-based technical products including oil paints, varnishes, biofuel, solvents, and coatings is expected to drive market growth . The personal care industry is expected to register a revenue-based CAGR of 15.9% from 2018 to 2025 on account of high fatty acid content of the product.
