A History of Hemp
Despite being a relatively new product on our shelves, hemp has been used in a multitude of ways for thousands of years.
- According to historical records, hemp originates from the Himalayas. Hemp was initially used in pottery for making vessels to carry liquid, in clothing for robes, and a food source for making hemp flour bread. Between 2838 and 2698 BC, and documented by the ruling emperor at that time – Shen Nung or The Red Emperor, the Chinese first used hemp for its medicinal properties. They predominantly used hemp to treat pain, and later produced oils and tea derived from hemp plants. Fresh hemp leaves were tightly wrapped around wounds to aid in a faster healing process while reducing pain and infection.
- Around 400 AD was the discovery of the Yin Pang Mummy in China, which was the first documented use of hemp bio-plastic. In modern society, you can find this hemp plastic in the manufacturing of car parts, furniture, packaging, and many other environmentally-friendly products. The Gutenberg bible - the first-ever printed book, was published on hemp paper, and is the most valuable book today.
- Nowadays, hemp is gaining popularity across multiple industries. It offers a lightweight and stretchy material - ideal for earthquake-prone areas. The hospitality industry has seen a rise in the demand for plant-based protein sources, which hemp provides while offering numerous additional health benefits.
What you Should Know About Hemp as a Food Source
Hemp has evolved into a diverse food source, used for many dishes in today’s modern cuisine.
- Hemp seed oil is probably the most well-known hemp product. It adds flavour and goodness to most food dishes, and is also useful around the house. You can also incorporate hemp oil into your skincare routine as it contains anti-ageing properties. Our range of terpenes are great for treating skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.
- Hemp seeds were a staple food source for the poor, and used as livestock feed. Nowadays, hemp seed bread and hemp flour bread are favourites among families worldwide.
- Hemp tea is known for its relaxation effect. Tea produced from the roots of the plant assists in the treatment of gout, post-natal bleeding, and ulcers. Tea made from the flowers or buds prevents the formation of kidney stones and aids digestion.
