Hemp, grown for its industrial use in rope and fabrics is now a trending ingredient in many products. It’s actually been around for thousands of years, in fact one of the oldest examples of human industry is said to be a small piece of hemp fabric dating back to approximately 8,000 BC.
Hemps is a sustainable resource, the stalks can be used for textiles, ropes and paper products and the seeds and flowers can be used in health foods and body care products. But why are we now seeing as a trending ingredient in shampoos, lotions and other body care products? With Canada announcing the legalization of Marijuana come October 2018, many businesses want to get in on this trendy ingredient. Although hemp and marijuana are not the same, they are both a part of the Cannabis family. Hemp contains no cannabinoid molecules, including THC and CBD.
