Hemp is a versatile material that is used in many kinds of commercial and industrial products. The fibers are woven into fabrics that are used for clothes, shoes, bags or furniture. Thicker fibers are used in mulch or animal beddings.

Hemp is also used in the construction industry. Hemp and lime blocks are used for insulation. Hemp walls are also gaining popularity as a “green building material” because they are durable and allow a natural flow of air, thus decreasing energy consumption.
