What is the purpose of hemp?

Hemp leaves and flowers are used to make CBD oil. As more people experiment with CBD oil extracted from hemp plants as a wellness supplement, CBD-focused cultivation is becoming increasingly popular.

Textiles, paper, building materials, and other industrial products are made with hemp fibers. Hurds, or shives, are short woody fibers that are often present inside the stalk. Bedding materials, absorbents, particleboard, ceiling panels, compost, and other industrial items are all made with them.

Bast fibers make up the stalk's outer layer and are divided into three types: primary, or line fiber, secondary, and tow fibers. They are classified based on cell strength and cell wall thickness, which impact the fiber's strength, durability, and application possibilities.



What is hemp's role in the food industry?

Protein, dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals abound in hemp seeds. They have the ideal ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids for a healthy diet. Hemp proteins are also more digestible for humans than conventional soy protein isolates (SPIs) used in food goods, according to a 2008 study.
Hemp seeds can be eaten directly or in the form of hemp oil. Hempseed seeds can be crushed into flour or combined with water to make hempseed milk.
