Cannabis is one of the oldest useful growing plants in the world. The cannabis plant was domesticated more than 6,000 years ago in Central Asia and contains more than 400 organic compounds. The two most important groups of molecules with bioactive characteristics in hemp are terpenes and cannabinoids - CBD belongs to the last category. Hemp has been cultivated for more than 6,000 years and has been used in textile production all over the world for about 3,000 years. The hemp plant can be used in a variety of ways. In China, textiles were produced 5,000 years ago, and paper was made from them about 2,000 years ago.For a long time hemp was a very competitive commodity. Especially for the textile and paper industry it was of great value.Meanwhile, hemp is considered a very popular product, which is mainly used in the production of yarns, sailcloths and jeans. Hemp seeds were once considered very nutritious.

Meanwhile, ordinary hemp - lat. Cannabis sativa - grows almost everywhere. Main growing areas are mainly regions with a subtropical climate, but there are also many other growing areas in Europe, especially France, Spain and Switzerland. Nowadays even Turkey has shown high interest in cultivating hemp. Today cannabis seeds are increasingly used again in a variety of foods - from oil over pasta to sweets for example chocolate covered hemp seeds.

All in all hemp is a very fascinating and useful plant and it deserves a better reputation in the whole society than it actually has - but that is something that we can all work for!
