Lake Tuggeranong College Library's insight:

Hemp is one of the oldest crops known to human kind, and some historians believe the need for material to make ropes and sails for the Royal Navy, was the real reason behind the establishment of Australia as a penal colony. Now hemp is making a comeback of sorts, supplying growing markets in masonry, fibreglass replacements and textiles. However a push to legalise foods made from hemp seeds could be the key to Australia's hemp industry taking off.

Textile Composite Industries Pty Ltd have developed a revolutionary decortication system which saves many hours and costs in the processing of Hemp Fibre and Hurd.

Hemp as an Agricultural Commodity; Congressional Research Service

by Renée Johnson 

 

Summary 
Industrial hemp is a variety of Cannabis sativa and is of the same plant species as marijuana. However, hemp is genetically different and distinguished by its use and chemical makeup. Hemp has long been cultivated for non-drug use in the production of industrial and other goods. Some estimate that the global market for hemp consists of more than 25,000 products. It can be grown as a fiber, seed, or other dual-purpose crop. Hemp fibers are used in a wide range of products, including fabrics and textiles, yarns and raw or processed spun fibers, paper, carpeting, home furnishings, construction and insulation materials, auto parts, and composites. The interior stalk (hurd) is used in various applications such as animal bedding, raw material inputs, low-quality papers, and composites. Hemp seed and oilcake are used in a range of foods and beverages, and can be an alternative food protein source. Oil from the crushed hemp seed is an ingredient in a range of body-care products and also nutritional supplements. Hemp seed is also used for industrial oils, cosmetics and personal care, and pharmaceuticals, among other composites.
