Abstract: This 5 page report discusses hemp (Cannabis sativa, C. indica), part of the same plant family as marijuana. Hemp does not have the narcotic kick that marijuana does. Its value lies in its fibers. Hemp fibers are twice as long and stronger than cotton fibers and are generally more versatile than the soybean, cotton plant and Douglas fir tree combined together. In addition, there are beneficial and healthy nutritional properties of hemp seed and hemp seed oil. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
