After the first season of HBO’s hit show Silicon Valley, which focuses on the marijuana industry, many wondered if it would lead to the legalization of marijuana in the United States.
As of this writing, no such legal change is on the horizon.
But with the premiere of The Marijuana Story by Michael Nelson on the way, and with more than a year of data to back it up, the question is, “Why does the industry need it?”
A number of factors contribute to the popularity of hemp for its medicinal benefits.
The first reason is the plant’s fiber and its low carbon footprint.
The most common type of fiber is hemp seed.
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, hemp seed is less than 1 percent of the total fiber used by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization.
And, according to the Department of Agriculture, hemp is a low-emitting crop, meaning that it uses less energy per gram than corn and can be grown with less fertilizer.
And since it is a highly-emollient fiber, it is an ideal candidate for production for fiber-enhanced products, such as clothing, apparel and shoes.
And because hemp is also the fiber of choice for many other industries, including clothing, it offers a range of health benefits, such like the ability to fight infections.
A second reason is hemp’s role as a sustainable crop.
The fiber is highly water-soluble, meaning it can be used in a wide range of products, including textiles, apparel, and plastics.
This is important for its ability to absorb and retain water, which helps keep it from drying out or rotting.
According the National Hemp Association, the fibers can also be used as a replacement for petroleum-based polymers, such the polyester fibers found in fabric and textiles.
The use of hemp can also improve the quality of the food supply.
Hemp has a low carbon content of about 4 percent.
And the use of it in food production is one of the few things that doesn’t require the use for petroleum.
According to the American Hemp Association , the U and Canadian hemp industries are now the second and third largest producers of hemp products in the world.
With production of hemp-based products at an all-time high, the industry is poised to become a major player in the global hemp market.
Hemp is also a high-value crop, making it a perfect candidate for industrial hemp farming, which is what the marijuana story is all about.
This farming method, which uses no pesticides, no chemicals, and a minimal amount of water, is popular in Asia and Africa.
In addition to being environmentally friendly, it’s also very effective in growing the plants that produce hemp seeds, which can be re-used for other uses.
In other words, hemp has been used to create products like medical marijuana, which has proven to be an effective medicine for many diseases.
According the United State Department of Health and Human Services, there are about 4,000 industrial hemp farms operating in the U of S, with an estimated total of about 50 million pounds of the plant annually.
The United States is home to more than 10,000 of these farms, which are expected to grow to more the 200,000 to 500,000 acres annually by 2020.
According Nelson, who wrote the book on the hemp industry, it all started when his mother was diagnosed with colitis.
She had to take pills for about a year, but eventually found a way to grow and harvest the plant.
“I told my mom, ‘I have this ability to do anything I want, I’m a farmer,'” Nelson told The Huffington Post.
“So I just started growing it.
And she just grew it.”
Growing hemp is not an expensive process.
According, a survey by Hemp Industries Association, an industry group, the average cost per pound of fiber used in hemp production is $1.50.
Hemp can also not only be used to make textiles and other fiber-rich products, but also as a fiber for other products, like clothing and other apparel.
According a report by the American Institute of Hemp Industries, the total value of hemp fiber in the production of clothing, footwear, and other textile products is expected to reach $10 billion by 2020, up from $5 billion in 2011.
In the next decade, the U, U.K., and Australia could become the major producers of fiber for clothing and footwear, the report states.
