Hemp is one of the world’s most versatile and most sustainable materials, yet it is not being used to its full potential. Hemp can be used for fuel and building materials, its fiber can make clothing, and it can nourish both humans and animals.
As the world comes to terms with the action needed to tackle global warming and the pollution of the planet, hemp must play a central role in the path to sustainability.
The National Industrial Hemp Council of America [NIHC] exists to promote the production and use of hemp both in North America and around the world. Backed by the US Government, our senior team comprises international, federal, state, private industry, and government professionals from across the agriculture and business sectors.
The global industrial hemp market size was estimated at $4.71billion in 2019 and is growing annually at rate of circa 15%. NIHC works tirelessly to increase this as new uses for hemp are pioneered, more governments embrace the industry and consumers continue to invest in more sustainable products.
We know that hemp production is a sound business proposition. Even more importantly, we know the role it can play in repairing the planet.
