Why isn’t hemp used more widely?

Hemp was an extremely popular crop for thousands of years. However, hemp fell out of favour in the US for many when taxes were levied upon it in the 1930s making it unprofitable to grow and in 1970, when the US passed a law that classed plants containing any amount of THC as Schedule I drugs – even hemp with its negligible amounts. But now countries are waking up to the wonders of hemp and repealing laws limiting its production and sale. In Australia, the use of hemp in food products was finally legalised in 2017, opening the door for farmers to grow a crop that’s perfectly suited to Australia’s arid climate and capable of delivering enormous health benefits to consumers.
