Hemp, Cannabis sativa, has been called the world's most versatile plant. Materials made from hemp fiber have been discovered in tombs dating back to 7000 B.C. During the Middle Ages hemp was used to treat fevers, insomnia, and malaria. Columbus's ships had sails of hemp, and during colonial times it was universally grown because its strong fibers made superior ropes, sails, cloth, and paper. In fact, hemp was used for money in most of the Americas from 1631 until the early 1800s, and the original drafts of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were written on hemp paper. As a food, the oil from hemp seeds has the highest percentage of essential fatty acids and the lowest percentage of saturated fats. Britain and Canada have recently lifted bans on growing industrial hemp and today it is reappearing in the marketplace in an amazing array of products: from lip-salve, jeans, salad oil, and cheese to paper products, composite fiberboard, and biomass fuel. This illustrated, easy-to-read guide covers all aspects of hemp: • The history of its cultivation worldwide • Its role as a source of renewable energy and as an alternative for paper manufacturing and fossil fuels • Its versatility as a fiber • Its many nutritional and medicinal uses • Examines the physiological and psychological effects of marijuana use in recreation and therapy • A comprehensive resource section includes information on organizations involved in legalizing hemp, product suppliers, and an annotated bibliography.

Today's science and culinary arts are finally catching on to what the ancients of China, India, Babylonia, Persia, Egypt, and the Americas knew for centuries: Hemp is one of the tastiest, most powerful superfoods on the planet. Deliciously nutty in flavor, hemp is gluten free and naturally reduces inflammation throughout the body. It contains all nine essential amino acids--making it one of the few plant-based complete sources of protein--and is a great source of gamma linoleic acid (GLA), critical for detoxification and hormone balance. Plus, hemp quickly and noticeably improves the condition of skin, hair, and nails. Each of the nearly 200 recipes in this innovative cookbook uses hempseeds, hemp nuts, hemp flour, or hempseed oil. Vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores alike are honored, and there are many gluten-free recipes as well. The diversity of dish runs the gamut from comfort food such as Hempnut Burgers and Hempnut Fried Chicken to foreign-inspired exotica such as Pumpkin Hempanadas, Hemp Spätzel, and Green Papaya Spring Rolls with Spicy Hemp Dipping Sauce. Also provided are substitutions for hemp ingredients, as well as a list of resources to help readers find top-quality hemp ingredients. The Galaxy Global Eatery Hemp Cookbook is the result of restaurateur Denis Cicero's lifelong dream of making hempseed a household ingredient. In the book, he dispels hemp myths (it is not psychoactive, and eating it won't cause you to fail a drug test), provides "fast facts" (did you know the Declaration of Independence was written on hemp paper?), and offers all kinds of fascinating insight into the amazing virtues of hemp. Best of all, with the simple, step-by-step instructions provided for each recipe, any home cook can impress friends and family by re-creating some of the most innovative and scrumptious hemp dishes ever invented. --Globetrotting recipes feature African, Californian, Caribbean, French, German, Indian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Laotian, Mediterranean, Mexican, North American, South American, and Thai cuisines. --Simple instructions on making hemp milk, butter, and cheese help vegan and vegan-curious readers try these delicious dairy alternatives at home. --Beautiful four-color photographs throughout will inspire home cooks to re-create these unique dishes for their friends and family.

Cannabis: Evolution and Ethnobotany is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary exploration of the natural origins and early evolution of this famous plant, highlighting its historic role in the development of human societies. Cannabis has long been prized for the strong and durable fiber in its stalks, its edible and oil-rich seeds, and the psychoactive and medicinal compounds produced by its female flowers. The culturally valuable and often irreplaceable goods derived from cannabis deeply influenced the commercial, medical, ritual, and religious practices of cultures throughout the ages, and human desire for these commodities directed the evolution of the plant toward its contemporary varieties. As interest in cannabis grows and public debate over its many uses rises, this book will help us understand why humanity continues to rely on this plant and adapts it to suit our needs.

Cannabis sativa is best known as the source of marijuana, the world’s most widely consumed illicit recreational drug. However, the plant is also extremely useful as a source of stem fiber, edible seed oil, and medicinal compounds, all of which are undergoing extremely promising research, technological applications, and business investment. Indeed, despite its capacity for harm as a recreational drug, cannabis has phenomenal potential for providing new products to benefit society and for generating extensive employment and huge profits. Misguided policies, until recently, have prevented legitimate research on the beneficial properties of cannabis, but there is now an explosion of societal, scientific, and political support to reappraise and remove some of the barriers to usage. Unfortunately, there is also a corresponding dearth of objective analysis. Towards redressing the limitation of information, Cannabis: A Complete Guide is a comprehensive reference summarizing botanical, business, chemical, ecological, genetic, historical, horticultural, legal, and medical considerations that are critical for the wise advancement and management of cannabis in its various forms. This book documents both the risks and benefits of what is indisputably one of the world’s most important species. The conflicting claims for medicinal virtues and toxicological vices are examined, based mainly on the most recent authoritative scientific reviews. The attempt is made consistently to reflect majority scientific opinion, although many aspects of cannabis are controversial. Aside from the relevance to specialists, the general public should find the presentation attractive because of the huge interest today in marijuana. Unfortunately, society has become so specialized and compartmentalized that most people have limited appreciation of the importance of science to their lives, except when a topic like marijuana becomes sensationalized. This review of cannabis can serve as a vehicle for public education in the realm of science and technology. Indeed, towards the goal of disseminating the important information in this book to a wide audience, the presentation is user-friendly, concise, and well-illustrated in the hope that non-specialists will find the topics both informative and entertaining.
