Modern “industrial” hemp, a relative to the cannabis people smoke, is quite frankly a miracle plant. Hemp produces more edible protein per acre of cultivated land than any other plant including soy which comes in second. Ten times more than wheat. It produces a considerable amount of highly nutritious oil from its seeds, Moreover, in addition to its food value it also produces fiber for cordage and textiles which is superior in strength and durability to cotton. It can be processed into plastics, paper and lightweight, strong insulating bricks for building. It can be processed into diesel fuel. It grows all over the world in many different climates and will grow with practically no cultivation when planted in favorable conditions.
