The environment has largely been affected by the development efforts of men in several ways. It has necessitated the human race to seek for means that can promote development but at the same time be in sympathy with the state of the environment. In a desperate effort to help salvage our already damaged environment, turning to hemp made products is a huge step towards recovery. Several authorities globally have spoken against and questioned hemp products as its mainly viwed as a substance that can be abused. With a margin of less than one percent, like Marijuana the hemp plant also contains the chemical Tetrahydrocannabinol responsible for making people high.
Focusing more on the good in the hemp in the hemp plant, it has the ability to bring an aspect of green in almost everything. The hemp plant stands out because of being easily sustainable. The hemp plant has a feature of growing to maturity within a short period of time and therefore can be re-grown a number of times within the season. Depending on where one is, you can grow the hemp plant with little or no pesticides making it easy on those growing it.
For those soils that suffer shortage of some nutrients, the hemp plan can come in handy as it has the ability to replenish the soils with nutrients. In the recent times the hemp plant has set its advantages higher after being used in cleaning up radioactive content in areas that have been exposed to nuclear radiation. Anti aging properties among other properties of oils found in the hemp plant seeds can be used on the skin and in cosmetic production putting in mind that both are natural ingredients rather than chemicals.
Energy is a big deal and life, anywhere on the globe, would not be as we know it without stable energy sources as they are the driving power of development. At just a portion of the current cost of a unit of energy , the hemp plant can be converted into gas and other cleaner fuels like methanol which will also come with having a healthy environment . If the world turned to hemp sources of energy the pollution rates will be a thing of the past as the emissions left in the atmosphere from the current fuels are not an end product with hemp energy.
The hemp also produces some form of cellulose fiber that can be used in production of fabric and hence cheaper clothes. At this point in time maybe we should consider making the hemp plant a partner in life and in saving the environment.
