The history of true hemp

Cannabis Sativa L. is a species of one-year old grass plant
from the cannabis family. The name of cannabis is derived from the Dutch word ‘canvas’. The main source of cannabis growth is the sun, and the possible achievable height of the plant in one season is 1.5 – 3 m.
Hemp is undoubtedly the most valuable, renewable gift of our planet, and its greatest values are seeds, flowers, fiber and shives.

The history of true hemp in Poland and abroad is long and complex, yet very interesting. What stopped the worldwide industrial use of this mystical plant, which for hundreds of years was a universal medicine, the main source of protein and the raw material in the production of paper, fibers, fabrics, sails, ropes and heating oil?

“The earliest known fabric was apparently made from hemp, which began to be used
in the eighth millennium BC “- Columbia History of the World

The Slavic times were the heyday of cannabis and their popularity in many areas of Polish life. In addition to the impact on the economic and medical plane, cannabis formed a significant symbolism in the sphere of spirituality and cult rituals. Poland is privileged to be among the few countries where research has already been carried out in the area covering the production of fibers, agricultural techniques and methods of using the obtained raw material already in the pre-war period. Reliable sources say up to 30,000 ha of agricultural hemp (1960). Cannabis hemp is characterized by a multitude of forms, and those grown on the territory of the Republic of Poland in their composition contain a small amount of THC (<0.2%), which makes them substances lacking in psychoactive properties. Unfortunately, the stricter Polish law in the field of anti-drug laws did not favor Polish farmers in the development and escalation of cannabis crops.

In spite of the negligible THC content in industrial hemp, legal restrictions efficiently prevented farmers from continuing the long tradition of hemp cultivation in our country.
It’s time for a change now! The growing popularity of hemp products and the increasing number of studies which confirm their efficiency and versatility have made us take action and address formal issues. As a result, we offer unlimited access to completely organic hemp plantations which are free from fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides.
