Abstract


The possibilities of using the hemp plant are endless. A wide range of products can be obtained from this plant, from clothing to paper, from crockery to automotive components and from musical instruments to bird feed. It is known that this plant fits well in almost any climatic conditions, grows quickly and needs very little maintenance. It requires no chemicals and is resistant to pests and diseases. Hemp uses very little water per kilogram of fiber compared to cotton and stores CO2 during growth, which increases its photosynthetic efficiency. In addition, it improves the soil, being ideal for crop rotation.
