ABSTRACT
The article reports that the health virtues of hemp as a food ingredient will spur its growth on supermarket shelves. Hemp has been grown for at least the past 12,000 years, for use in fiber and food. The first thing to understand is that hemp is not marijuana. Industrial hemp and marijuana are both classified as Cannabis sativa, a species with hundreds of varieties, and a member of the mulberry family.
