Ancient Chinese Hemp Clothing

Hemp (cannabis sativa) has been around for a really long time, long before we were making hemp clothing, fibers, plastics and water soluble CBD products. Carl Sagan, famed astronomer, theorized that hemp and the practice of making hemp clothing went back to the dawn of civilization. Since food was already plentiful, he suggested that early civilizations of people cultivated hemp for other reasons.

In the Neolithic period, hemp cultivation (along with domestication of animals and building of permanent structures) signaled the end of the Stone Age. Ernest L. Able, possibly the greatest hemp historian, talks about the first recorded historical reference of hemp came from Taiwan. It was on this island off the coast of China where researches discovered the remains of a 10,000 year old village.

Ancient people’s discovery that twisted strands of hemp fiber were stronger than single strands led to the development of spinning and weaving machines and techniques. It was during that time that people begun making hemp clothing, which replaced the animal skins they had been using for clothing. The early Chinese not only relied on hemp clothing, but they also used hemp for making paper and strings for their bows. Hemp fueled the early Asian economies and could be considered the world’s first cash crop.

Today, hemp clothing is making a comeback thanks to an increase in awareness on topics such as sustainability. Modern hemp clothing is prized for its breath-ability, durability, and low impact on natural resources. When compared to cotton, hemp plants are able to produce more material for making fibers and need less water during cultivation. Hemp clothing companies, such as Nomads Hemp Wear, are leading the resurgence in hemp clothing with their quality made products and variety of choices.

James Sol Radina

About James Sol Radina

As CEO and Co-Founder of BioCBD Plus™, James Sol Radina brings years of experience and accumulated expertise from the CBD industry. His interest originated in early 2014, when James embarked on a major filmmaking project to travel and study CBD around the world. Together with a team of filmmakers, he sought out to interview top doctors, scientists, and researchers about CBD, which, at the time, was relatively lesser known, but was starting a buzz in the market. After seeing first-hand the results that CBD had in the patients and experts they filmed, James was “all in!” and his business pursuits began. James started BioCBD Plus™ in 2015, with the goal to fill a niche void that existed in the CBD industry. With the knowledge he gained through his study of CBD, combined with new scientific research, he created the world’s first water-soluble, 100% BioAvailable CBD. The proprietary formula is whole-plant based and more easily absorbable by the body than other CBD products on the market, and the company’s product suite has continued to expand following its demonstrated success. The strength of James’ passion for CBD is matched by his dedication to volunteer service. He incorporated a strong socially responsible model to BioCBD Plus™, which supports The Veterans Discount Program and other programs through donations of CBD products to those who cannot afford them. Since the start of the company, James has also continued to be the inspirational energy behind the company’s beliefs and marketing strategy, which are driven by his commitment to spreading the science-based truth about CBD and bringing the healing benefits of the product to as many people as possible.
