National Hemp Day: The History of Hemp

National Hemp Day: The History of Hemp
February 04, 2021

Did you know? National Hemp Day was founded in 2019 and is an annual celebration of American hemp farmers and the rapid growth of the industry in recent years. Hemp has been a part of human civilization for thousands of years. The world’s earliest civilizations used hemp fibers to make fabric for clothing and other materials. During the last century, leaders used a “Hemp for Victory” campaign during WWII to encourage farmers to grow hemp for military use.

Hemp-based products – such as CBD oil, textiles, plastics, paints, and biofuels are more readily available for consumer use due to the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill and the recent support surrounding the industry. In fact, hemp and CBD markets could become a multibillion-dollar industry in just a few short years according to several studies. As a result, the growing, producing, and distribution of hemp are legal on a national level and must meet any applicable FDA requirements and standards, just like any other FDA-regulated product.

National Hemp Day, in conjunction with National CBD Day (August 8), National CBD Month (January), and National Hemp Month (July), was initiated to create awareness while highlighting the many applications of hemp-derived CBD and how it can support millions of people across the world every year. Celebrate the history of hemp and the farmers who work so hard to grow it.
