Historical Hemp


By Gayle Pruitt, CN.

The use of hemp goes as far back as 8000 BC. Hemp provided rope, paper, sails for ships, riggings, maps, food, medicine, and much much more.
In the 1850’s the US had more than 8,000 hemp plantations. Henry Ford of Ford Motor Company operated a biomass conversion plant producing Hemp fuel.
Many companies competing with products made from hemp started a smear campaign against hemp. Propaganda films like Reefer Madness were promoted by companies that viewed hemp as a threat. In 1937 the marijuana law prohibited hemp from being grown in the US. But hemp was so important the US began to import hemp from the Philippines. That stopped after the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

The US government produced a film that was released in 1942 called Hemp for Victory, promoting the growth of hemp for the war effort. War Hemp Industries was formed. After world War 11 the hemp processing plants were shut down mostly due to the lobbyist in Washington. This still is happening

Humans and canines have what is called cannabinoid receptors. These receptors are found in the human and dog’s brain and peripheral nervous system. This means that humans and dogs have been consuming hemp throughout history.
For food hemp has twenty amino acids that also includes the nine essential amino acids that the body cannot produce, plus numerous other important nutrients.

Ah! But what about medicine? What has hemp (cannabis) been used for historically?

Tuberculous
/glaucoma
epilepsy
cancer/ cancerous tumors/
Parkinson Disease
/Multiple Sclerosis
Pain

Industrial Hemp is making a comeback. Do not confuse this hemp with Marijuana. The industrial hemp has less than .3% of the psychotropic Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Industrial hemp will not get you high, but may help keep you and your dog healthy.
