Produced with fibers from the stem of the Cannabis Ruderalis plant, hemp is highly versatile. That's why it's used in the production of clothing, accessories, shoes, furniture, and even home decor. Hemp production yields much more per acre than cotton or eucalyptus, its cultivation requiring less agricultural inputs than other crops.
