Q. What is Hemp?
A. The word hemp refers to the varieties of Cannabis Sativa that

such a minute amount of THC(tetrahydrocannabinol- the psychoactive
ingrediant in marijuana) that the crop has no significant drug value!
Q. Why should I buy hemp products? What makes them so good?
A. Hemp is the strongest natural fiber on earth! It is said to be three

herbacides and pesticides hemp offers the consumer an opportunity to
make a conscious change in thier spending habbits.
