Hemp, now that it is a readily available crop to harvest according to most legal authorities worldwide, is now a common element used to make clothing. Much like cotton, hemp provides several natural benefits for the wearer of hemp clothing.
The hemp used to make clothing is made from the Cannabis Sativa plant that only has a negligible amount of marijuana’s intoxicating element, THC. Another reason hemp is so popular is its benefits to the farmer and the environment.
Hemp crops absorb carbon dioxide in the air as they grow. Unlike cotton, hemp requires less water to flourish. It also needs less chemicals to kill invading insects as the crop simply doesn’t attract those elements and the ground water is not polluted by the chemicals. Hemp is one of the few crops that does not leach the ground of nutrients as the plant grows.
