-Topic Focus-

The cannabis/hemp game was transformed in December of 2018 when the 2018 Farm Bill passed as it legalized hemp for so many uses. After years of being listed as a narcotic, we are finally seeing hemp being properly recognized as the agricultural boon that it is.

Forward-thinking industrial applications, CBD usage in the medical field for pain relief and more, the creation of hempcrete for the construction industry, making cosmetics, the vitamin content of the seeds, and so much more are all broken down and discussed in “America Hemp” by Jen Hobbs.

I thought I knew about the possible applications of hemp beyond consumption but apparently, I still have so much to learn and this book has been very enlightening to review.
