Hemp is an annual plant that grows well in most parts of the country, except for in extreme desert conditions and high mountain areas.It thrives in warm weather and flourishes in well-drained soils that are high in organic matter.
Hemp is an ideal plant for organic farmers because it requires minimal inputs, is fairly resistant to pests and diseases, and reduces the need for hand cultivation – a major labor cost for most other organic crops.
Like Marijuana, Hemp is a member of the Cannabis sativa L. plant species. While both plants are from the same species, they contain a unique biological structure which makes them very different plants indeed.

The plant has over 25,000 known uses and is potentially an eco-friendly alternative for other crops commonly produced on an industrial scale
The voluminous quantities of biomass Hemp produces are a potential raw material for livestock feed, biofuel production, paper and textiles
