A Reason to Celebrate This Independence Day

The 4th of July is just around the corner, and all across the country, Americans are gearing up for Independence Day. As we near our country’s birthday, HempMeds® would like to take a moment to celebrate America, our country’s hemp history, and the role hemp played in America’s fight for independence.

Hemp has had a long and storied past in our country. Early on, the American colonies were required to grow hemp by the British for use by their navy. This was especially important to England, as the country had no significant domestic sources of hemp.


Later, America’s founding fathers like Thomas Jefferson and George Washington grew hemp on their farms, recognizing its value in the manufacturing of sail canvas, rope, and cloth for clothing and bags. Historical records show that many of our founding fathers had a vast understanding of hemp cultivation and processing.

The finished goods made from America’s hemp would later come in handy during the Revolutionary War. George Washington led troops wearing hemp uniforms and marched them under a hemp flag. Surplus hemp from American farms could even be traded to France in exchange for military supplies like guns. In many ways, U.S. hemp equipped our revolutionary army.

Today, hemp is used for textiles and paper, biofuel, bioplastics, hempcrete and as a source for cannabinoids. Once banned completely on a federal level, the 2014 Farm Bill opened the door to American hemp cultivation once again through the creation of hemp pilot programs. Now farmers in states like Kentucky, Virginia, and even New York are growing hemp plots for research purposes. With so many uses for sustainable hemp and burgeoning hemp agriculture in our country, America has plenty to cheer this Independence Day.
