Eco friendly furniture is made out of many sustainable fabrics and materials. Hemp furniture is probably the most popular in the “green furniture” realm these days.

Why buy furniture that will not last long when you can buy furniture made from sustainable materials that look amazingly stylish? Yes sustainable furniture can be pretty slick. Hemp furniture is sure to start a conversation at your next dinner party.
“For 5,900 years, hemp was earth’s most important commodity, and in the last 50 years, it’s been earth's most persecuted commodity,” said Paul Benhaim, founder of one of the largest Hemp CBD manufacturers – Elixinol.
Anything wood can do hemp can do better
Anything wood can do hemp can usually do too. A lot of wood goes into making furniture.
People throw away furniture more often than they realize. Couches, chairs, etc. can all be made, top to bottom, out of hemp.
Over the years, the hemp industry has experienced a lot of ups and downs, but with the recent explosion in the popularity of CBD and a shift in demand for natural products, the industry is experiencing a renaissance.
Due to this new demand for hemp and hemp-based products, farmers and green-fingered entrepreneurs all over the world are turning to hemp cultivation as the next big thing.
Hemp is not Cannabis
Cannabis is a classification of plants with various species, and Hemp and Marijuana are both species of plant within the Cannabis family.
Although Hemp and Marijuana are both species of Cannabis, they have several distinct differences. Hemp is completely different from marijuana in its function, cultivation and applications. Hemps applications are in automobiles, body care, clothing, construction, food, plastic, etc and is NOT a psychoactive compound. Hemp has only traces of CBD while CBD oil can have up to 20 percent. It is this higher concentration that makes CBD beneficial in the treatment of various health disorders. Hemp is the strongest natural fiber of any source available.
Shift in demand for natural products
With the fast-growing popularity of CBD throughout the globe, and dozens of practical usages and bio-friendly alternatives made possible by hemp, the hemp industry is positioned to continue to skyrocket. The only challenge left now is to continue to build awareness and educate the general public.
