Abstract


 Also called "the plant of the future" or "the wonder plant", hemp is a mirage through the immense range of benefits it brings to people's lives. Every part of it can be valorised. The article presents a general characterization of hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) from its origins, the spread on the territory of Romania, the morphological particularities, the chemical composition of both the plant and the seeds, as well as the uses in different fields of activity. Hemp seeds, due to the chemical composition rich in protein, amino acids, omega 3 and omega 6, high quality oil, can be used in the food industry as a supplement of baking powder.
