Sustainability with Hemp

Controversial, yet very hot topic on use of hemp or cannabis (marihuana) …was in the spotlight  of today’s interview with Viki Vaurora and Deblina Chowdhury. Fighting with his own illness,  Vicki got across with medicinal properties of cannabis, and amazed by results he dive into the topic. In 2014 The Great Legalization Movement was established, and along with others Viki also initiated Indian Hemp Research Institute which is in process to be supported by Indian government. However both, Deblina and Viki do see sustainability of the country in the use of industrial hemp which versatility could replace many materials , from our homes, clothing, food, to bio plastic, and fuel.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemp
Hemp or industrial hemp (from Old English
hænep) typically found in the northern hemisphere, is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown specifically for the industrial uses of its derived products. It is one of the fastest growing plants and was one of the first plants to be spun into usable fiber 10,000 years ago. It can be refined into a variety of commercial items including paper, textiles, clothing, biodegradable plastics, paint, insulation, biofuel, food, and animal feed.

Although cannabis as a drug and industrial hemp both derive from the species Cannabis sativa and contain the psychoactive component tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), they are distinct strains with unique phytochemical compositions and uses.[6] Hemp has lower concentrations of THC and higher concentrations of cannabidiol (CBD), which decreases or eliminates its psychoactive effects. The legality of industrial hemp varies widely between countries. Some governments regulate the concentration of THC and permit only hemp that is bred with an especially low THC content
