The history of hemp

Hemp is a powerful plant with a myriad of benefits and uses across the beauty, wellness and textile industries. Known to be one of the earliest cultivated plants in human history, archaeological data from ancient Mesopotamia reveals the remains of hemp cloth dated as early as 8,000 BC.

For centuries many cultures, including traditional Chinese medicine, have used hemp for medicinal and skincare purposes due to its unique anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.

The power of hemp

The plant itself is immensely sustainable, requiring no pesticides, and able to thrive in a variety of environments. Hemp also redistributes significant nutrients back to the soil from which it's grown, providing lasting health benefits to farmland.

Modern-day technology has enabled us to reveal the vast potential of the hemp plant. The health benefits alone are remarkable.
