Hemp is one of the oldiest economic plants. Originally Hemp was native to central Asia, over the years has spread worldwide and is located in temperate and tropicale zones.

Hemp Oil has a centuries-old tradition as wood preservative and as basis for paints, inks and wax crayons. Nowadays it is also used in cosmetics and food industries.
