" The earliest known woven fabric was apparently of hemp,

which began to be worked in the eigth millenium (8,000 - 7,000BC)"

From more than 1,000 years before the birth of Christ until 1883AD., Cannabis hemp - indeed, Marijuana -- was our planets largest agricultural crop and most important industry for thousands of products and enterprises;

producing the overall majority of Earths fibre, fabric, lighting oil, paper, incense and medicines, as well s a primary source of essential food, oil and protein for humans and animals.
