Considerations of the Timeline of the Rise and Fall and Rise of Hemp

“The rise and fall and rise of hemp include a long history of use as a medicine, for all types of fiber and a wide range of clothing.”  Hemp is a fascinating plant and has impacted history for many decades even when it was illegal. It is a versatile plant and an environmentally sustainable crop debut. It has been the lifeline for farmers who switched to hemp rather than corn and wheat crops because there was more demand and more profit.

The timeline is interesting because it shows the roller coaster ride through the annals of legislation. Wartime needed hemp to make all the additional supplies, so the legislature legalized it.  After the war they made it illegal again.  Between the law makers, law enforcement and the regulators at the FDA, they just could not see how hemp was not like the other branch of cannabis – marijuana.  It is sad to think that so many people missed out on the many health benefits because some bureaucrats couldn’t take up a research paper and find out the truth.  But hemp survived through it all and today it is legal, and it is in high demand even by the medical profession.

Timeline of the Rise and Fall and Rise of Hemp — The BC Years

8,000 BC – Starting in this date, hemp became one of the first cultivated agricultural crops and continued to hold that title as civilizations continued to start their hemp acreage. Before long, the villagers in these areas started using hemp cord in their pottery as well as other uses.

6,000 – 4,000 BC – Now we move on to the future years where we see hemp seeds and oil being consumed as food in ancient China and also used to make textiles throughout China and Turkestan.

1,200 BC – Now hemp reaches its arms into Europe and from there spreads across the ancient world which includes the first paper made completely from hemp.

Timeline of the Rise and Fall and Rise of Hemp — 1492 and Beyond, Brings Hemp to America

The officials asked the colonists to grow hemp to send back to England.  Throughout the 1700s the American colonies sold hemp textiles to France to make enough money to buy weapons for the Revolutionary War.  Thomas Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence on hemp paper. During these years, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson grew hemp on their respective farms and plantations.  Then the early Americans began setting up a monetary system.

Timeline of the Rise and Fall and Rise of Hemp — Things Changed for Hemp in the 1800’s to the 1990’s

Yes, they did change as cannabis hemp plantations flourished across North America, in areas including Mississippi, Georgia, Nebraska, South Carolina, Kentucky and New York.   In late 1800s, the chief botanist for the USDA began growing hemp varieties and for the purpose of doing extensive researching hemp cultivation techniques.

By the early 1900s, researchers claimed that more than 25,000 different products could be made from hemp. It was then that they christened it the “Billion Dollar Crop.” Mid-1940s, the United States Army launched a “Hemp for Victory” campaign as a program to start encouraging farmer to plant hemp and cultivate hundreds of thousands of acreages to help support the war effort.

Now skipping to the 1970s, The Controlled Substances Act classifies hemp as an illegal Schedule I drug, imposing strict regulations on its cultivation. This hit the agriculture right in the heart as the acreages grew rapidly for good reason because of the high demand.  In the late 1980s Manitoba Harvest came into existence and began growing the manufacturing and exporting of hemp foods.

Timeline of the Rise and Fall and Rise of Hemp — The New Millennium

Good news came in 2014 again when President Barack Obama signed the 2014 Farm Bill, permitting U.S. research institutions to start piloting hemp farming for research purposes.  Now the cultivators began cross breeding hemp flower strains in order to have as many strains as possible when hemp once again was legal on a federal basis.

In 2018, that happened when President Donald Trump signed the 2018 Farm Bill.  Legalizing hemp production, sale and distribution across the United States on a Federal basis because a reality. From that moment, hemp growth exploded from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic.  There were new hybrid strains being created with even better cannabinoid profiles and terpenes profiles. Those who were using marijuana for the health benefits or recreationally but despised the psychoactive element of it, now had an alternate choice.

This was a great time in America because of the release of a great product.  This product brought health to so many who had struggled for years with pain, anxiety, insomnia and so much more. Farmers were blessed with a product that brought in more revenue than corn and wheat. Vendors were granted a new stream of revenue.
