Hemp is a plant with a high fiber content. The average length of the fibers is 20 mm, which results in an extremely fine, yet tensile and tear resistant paper. Its fibers are used for example in the manufacture of fine papers such as cigarette papers and filter papers. It does not yellow thanks to the low concentration of lignin.
Its cultivation does not require any pesticide or fertilizer. On the contrary, it enriches the soil with mineral substances and is therefore beneficial to the environment. Unlike wood pulp paper, hemp paper has a much more natural and raw look.
Hemp and Cannabis come from the same botanical species (Cannabis Sativa). In practice, the word "hemp" is used to talk about cannabis for "industrial" use (textile, cosmetics, food, construction) and the word "cannabis" to talk about the one whose use is recreational or medicinal (which synonyms are numerous: marijuana, hashish, Indian hemp, shit, ...). Industrial hemp must have a THC level (the cannabinoid, responsible for the psychoactive effect) lower than 0.2% to be legally marketed.
