   Because cannabis hemp is, overall, the strongest, most-durable, longest-lasting natural soft-fiber on the planet. Its leaves and flower tops (marijuana) were—depending on the culture—the first, second, or third most important and most-used medicines for two-thirds of the world’s people for at least 3,000 years, until the turn of this century.

   Botanically, hemp is a member of the most advanced plant family on Earth. It is a dioecious (i.e., having male, female, and sometimes hermaphroditic [male and female on the same plant]) woody, herbaceous annual that uses the sun more efficiently than virtually any other plant on our planet, reaching a robust 12 to 20 feet or more in one short growing season.

It can be grown in virtually any climate or soil condition on Earth, even marginal ones.

Hemp is by far, Earth’s premier, renewable natural resource. This is why hemp is so important.
