Cannabis Botany

Today the Cannabis plant family can be separated into three main groups: Cannabis Sativa, Cannabis Indica, and Cannabis Ruderalis, although disputes exist regarding the exact distinctions of these groups. 


The use of Cannabis as an industrial crop by humans is as old as the practice of agriculture itself, dating back almost 10 000 years. Originally used for the fibres of the stalk in order to make fabrics for clothing or nets for hunting & fishing, the plant now has a diverse range of applications from construction and cosmetics to modern day uses such as 3D printing.

Hemp Stalks

The hemp stalk is possibly the most well-known component of the plant, as its primary- and secondary fibres are commonly used in textile production, plus construction materials, paper and plastics.

Hemp Seeds & Oils

Hemp seeds are one of the most complete sources of Omega oils available as well as a prolific source of food grain proteins. Pasta, jam, bread and many other foods may be produced with hemp seeds as a base.

Hemp Flowers & Roots

Most people are by now aware that hemp stalks are used as an industrial textile crop; however, it is actually possible to use the whole plant for a range of products.
