Hemp is extremely versatile.
The outer fibres of the plant are used for things like canvas and rope, while the innards are used for products like paper.
In addition to using hemp fibres, hemp growers also harvest hemp seeds for food or to be made into hemp oil for use in paints and cosmetics.
Growers can also extract CBD oil (Cannabidiol) from the stalks, leaves and buds of the plant. CBD oil is being used to assist in the treatment of conditions such as epilepsy and is being tested for treating a range of other ailments, including chronic pain conditions and more.
