Hemp in the New Year January 11, 2019 17:25

It is 2019, and industrial hemp is once again classified as an agricultural crop in the United States of America. We established this business in 1997, so we have been waiting for over 20 years to see this happen!

Throughout the life of Santa Fe Hemp - as we are situated in a tourist destination - we have talked to thousands upon thousands of people visiting from all corners of the earth. Each and every day we have answered questions about what hemp is, what it can be used for, and where it comes from. Before "hemp oil" became a trendy remedy for everything from arthritis to insomnia, we advocated for the use of the plant for clothing, body care products, paper, food, fuel, building materials, and many other things.

Congratulations to everyone who worked to make industrial hemp legal again!

And a special "Congrats" to all of the other small hemp shops out there who have supported their families (and communities) while taking up the mantle of educating the public and paving the way for industrial hemp's resurgence!

Hempy New Year!
