One of the most valuable parts of
the hemp plant is the fiber, commonly referred to as "bast,” meaning that it
grows as a stalk from the ground. Other fibers such as sisal, manila hemp and
jute are mistakenly referred to as, hemp, yet only Cannabis sativa is considered
"true hemp." Among the characteristics of hemp fiber are its superior strength
and durability, and its stunning resistance to rot, attributes that made hemp
integral to the shipping industry. The strong, woody bast fiber is extracted
from the stalk by a process known as decortication. Hemp fiber contains a low
amount of lignin, the organic glue that binds plant cells, which allows for
environmentally friendly bleaching without the use of chlorine. In composite
form, hemp is twice as strong as wood.
Long hemp fiber extracted from the bark of the stalk, this type of fiber is
called "long" because it stretches the entire length of the plant. The length of
the fiber enhances the strength and durability of the finished goods. Hemp can
grow to 15 feet or more, making it excellent for textile production. Hemp is
most similar to flax, the fiber of linen products. By contrast, cotton fibers
are approximately 1-2 mm in length and are prone to faster wear. Hemp fiber also
has insulative qualities that allow clothing wearers to stay cool in summer and
warm in the winter.
In United States, the debate about the relationship between hemp and marijuana
has been diminished by the dissemination of many statements that have little
scientific support. Below are these myths and reality.
Myth: United States law has always treated hemp and marijuana the same.
Reality: The history of federal drug laws clearly shows that at one time the
U.S. government understood and accepted the distinction between hemp and
Myth: Smoking industrial hemp gets a
Reality: The THC (which is the psychoactive ingredient of Cannabis, and
CBD, which is an antipsychoactive ingredient.One type of
Cannabisis high in the psychoactive cannabinoid, THC,
and low in the antipsychoactive cannabinoid, CBD.) levels in
industrial hemp are so low that no one could get high from smoking it. Moreover,
hemp contains a relatively high percentage of another cannabinoid, CBD, that
actually blocks the marijuana high. Hemp, it turns out, is not only not
marijuana; it could be called "antimarijuana."
Myth: Even though THC levels are low in hemp, the THC can be extracted and
concentrated to produce a powerful drug.
Reality: Extracting THC from industrial hemp and further refining it to
eliminate the preponderance of CBD would require such an expensive, hazardous,
and time-consuming process that it is extremely unlikely anyone would ever
attempt it, rather than simply obtaining high-THC marijuana instead.
Myth: Hemp fields would be used to hide marijuana plants.
Reality: Hemp is grown quite differently from marijuana. Moreover, it is
harvested at a different time than marijuana. Finally, cross-pollination between
hemp plants and marijuana plants would significantly reduce the potency of the
