Hemp History Week

By Rona Berg / June 6, 2018

Before all the chatter about CBD and THC, there was hemp—and still is. Hemp is an amazingly versatile and resilient plant used in protein powders and milks—it’s a great source of Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids—snack bars, soap and clothing. (Because hemp is such a great moisturizing ingredient, Dr. Bronner’s has been using hemp oil in its soaps for almost 20 years.) Hemp is fast-growing, sturdy and strong, and it sequesters carbon.

But the hemp industry still faces legislative challenges, which is why, every year in June, special attention is paid to share the latest research and ways to celebrate the amazing benefits of this incredibly versatile plant.

This year, the 9th Annual Hemp History Week, sponsored by The Hemp Industries Association (HIA) and Vote Hemp, will take place June 4-10, and the theme is “Deep Roots,” to raise awareness about how hemp is deeply rooted in American agriculture and how its “deep root” structure enriches soil and helps combat climate change.
