A recipe for burgers made from a plant with low levels of cannabis is just one of the products being sold online by a south Wales company. The firm, run by businesswoman Gail Dunsbee from her home in Chepstow, offers a range of goods including clothes and bath oils all made with hemp - a derivative of the class B drug.
Now is planning to sell its wares to a wider audience including students after getting help from the WDA. On Saturday, Mrs Dunsbee will exhibit at the Natural Health and Healthy Living Show at Cardiff University. Hemp is a versatile and hard wearing product often used to make clothing. But now Mrs Dunsbee is offering a wider use of the plant by selling other products made from hemp. "I get children asking me about hemp and they have no idea of its benefits, they just think about its link with cannabis," she said. "Cannabis is one thing, however, everything else that can be done with hemp is positive." Hemp has a variety of industrial uses including making paper, textiles, food, clothes and medicine. " was formed from a desire to respect the environment and to source the best and most varied hemp products from around the world," said Mrs Dunsbee. The hemp plant is farmed by eco-friendly methods and is claimed to be one of the most eco-beneficial crops grown. Hemp is the longest, strongest and most durable natural fibre known to mankind and can be grown in four months. Until 1883, more than 75% of the worlds paper was made from Hemp. It has been cultivated in the UK again since 1993. Source: BBC News (UK Web) Published: Saturday, November 1, 2003Copyright: 2003 BBC Contact: newsonline Hempish.com Hemp Archives
