Hemp’s multipurpose nature gives us even more reasons to give it more than a second thought.

Best hemp quotes

Hemp is truly one of the most valuable and versatile crops. There’s a criminal stigma that many people and nations attach to the crop due to cannabis abuse. However, cannabis has different variations. People grow industrial hemp, for instance, for fiber and edible purposes. This is how we acquire healthy hemp seeds, hemp fabrics, and many more products. 

There are various cannabis plants, all containing a substance called tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. This substance has psychoactive properties, giving that high and feel-good effect in marijuana. The hemp cannabis variation contains only a tiny amount of THC and serves non-drug purposes.

Many people celebrate the vital role of the non-psychoactive hemp plant in moving to more sustainable and circular manufacturing. Here are some of our favorite hemp quotes.

Hemp quotes about prohibition and legalization in the US

For decades, hemp has had negative connotations. Many instantly think of cannabis that gets people high when people hear the name. The use and misuse led many nations to prohibit and criminalize its use. 

In the United States, hemp was legal in the 18th and 19th centuries. By the 20th century, the government banned the growth of industrial hemp. This action was part of the government’s fight against drug use. Eventually, by the 21st century, hemp returned as a legal crop in the United States. 

Despite this, many people still have mixed feelings towards the crop. To fully understand the vast usefulness of this crop, there’s an urgent need to get past reducing it to simply a drug crop. 

Hemp is beneficial to us and the planet. As a result, people continue to raise their voices against the stigma associated with the crop. If you want to quickly explore thoughts on the prohibition and legalization of this crop, check out these hemp quotes. These quotes also highlight the many purposes the yield serves, such as providing food, hemp clothing, and housing materials.
