Case in Point: Hemp

Claim: Hemp is the next big thing that must replace cotton

What we found out:

  • An ancient crop still grown across the world, hemp requires just 20 per cent of the water that cotton takes to grow. The water-intensive cotton drinks about 75 lakh litre water per hectare.
  • Much like cotton, hemp plants too can be woven into comfortable, soft fabrics that are in fact, sturdier than their cotton counterparts.
  • What’s more, the same plant can be used to make hair oil, nutrition powder, soaps, lip balms and body butter. 
  • Rich in protein, amino acids, fibre, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and Vitamin E, hemp seeds and their powder is a perfect diet supplement for vegetarians and vegans.
  • The nutrients found in hemp aid in improving skin texture, reducing inflammation in the body, keeping the heart healthy as well as in relieving rheumatoid arthritis!

We must explore the benefits of growing hemp and increase its cultivation in a country like India which experiences water scarcity frequently.
