Hemp has been harvested for thousands of years, dating as far back as 8000 BC, and has been integral to humans: over the years it has been used for food, fabric, housing and medicine, just to name a few.
Hemp was one of the earliest crops to be cultivated in Asia and soon spread to the likes of Europe, Africa and South America. Eventually finding its way to North America too.
Hemp was widely grown across Britain from at least 800 AD to 1800 AD. King Henry VIII famously imposed a penalty for farmers who didn't grow hemp. In 1563, Queen Elizabeth I followed his lead and decreed that land owners with 60 acres of land must use one acre to grow hemp.
The UK hemp industry started to fade away during the Victorian era due to cheaper imported hemp.
Hemp is now seeing an exciting comeback as people are starting to re-discover and further understand it's powerful therapeutic benefits.
