The Growth of hemp

The Growth of hemp

During the 1800’s in Victorian Britain interest in hemp often reached almost hysterical levels.

The cultivation and use of hemp in the UK proliferated from the Elizabethan era (roughly 1550 AD – 1600 AD) onwards, right up to the mid-nineteenth century. This was due to hemp being used in a number of capacities; most notably on naval & commercial ships throughout this time period. These vessels saw the establishment of overseas trading posts and, later, the expansion of the British Empire which, at it’s peak, was the largest in the world. As the far-flung empire grew, its reliance & demand for hemp grew with it.

How times have changed!

Hemp is also a low impact crop, which doesn’t require pesticides. It actively heals the environment by regenerating the soil and capturing CO2 from the atmosphere – amazing stuff!

Hemp is a strain of the plant Cannabis sativa. The important difference between hemp and cannabis as you might know it, is that they both contain the compounds CBD (the one which interacts with the cannabinoid receptors in your body) and THC (the one that gets you high), but in varying proportions.

Hemp, which is legal to produce in the UK, must contain less than 0.2% of the THC compound, so you won’t feel any psychoactive (‘high’) effects. It is grown only under a license granted by the Home Office. Cannabis plants containing more than 0.2% THC are currently illegal to produce or consume in the UK, and you won’t find any of those on our farms!
