When we hear of hemp clothing, we immediately think of some college kids trying to eat their hemp tank top before cop that pulled them over for speeding can smell where they burned away the whole left side. We go into mental shut down at the mention of the hemp fabric not being someone’s tank top, but their underwear. It’s not that we cannot believe it. After all, we heard of another drug that people make from drain cleaner and then shot it into their veins, it is just that we cannot allow ourselves to think of our children’s underwear when they were high school or college age.
The world is becoming more aware of the benefits of Cannabis its byproducts. While many people who are over 60 are still not sure about things like pot-infused brownies or CBD oil, we readily admit that it has to be better than the horrid drugs that cancer patients are forced to take. When we speak of hemp, we know it is made of the same family of plants that makes pot (well, sort of).
There will come a time when all people will have to uncover the secrets of nature. We will have to look beyond what we want to what we need and what the planet will give us that can be replenished. The future of underwear and other clothing is in hemp material.
Reality to the rescue
Hemp is made from a strain of Cannabis called Sativa. This plant does not contain THC and it does not get a person high. It has been used to make cloth, ropes, string, twine, and fabric for over 10,000 years. This is NOT the same strain that is used for marijuana. Hemp is naturally antibacterial, anti-microbial, anti-odor. Basically, vegan underwear keeps your skin healthier without the need for lotions, creams, or powders. Hemp underwear ensures your comfort no matter what the humidity.
Hemp is the most eco-friendly fabric you can find. It lasts for years. As you wash it, hemp becomes softer and softer. It is cooler and much longer lasting than any other material, including cotton. It comes in many textures, patterns, and colors. Hemp underwear is 100% biodegradable. Perhaps you have gained or lost a lot of weight, or your wife grabbed one of your hemp tee-shirts when the cat knocked over a can of paint. In any event you don’t want your tee to go away and spend thousands of years in a landfill. Hemp has got you covered.
Hemp material is naturally UV protectant. Wearing a hemp undershirt or tee-shirt is as much protection against the sun as having fresh sunscreen continually applied all day long. This is a great way to protect a large part of your body from the dangers of skin cancer.
Many times we make the mistake of taking in limited information and running with it. By doing that with hemp underwear, you may let misunderstandings cost you a chance to have high-quality clothing, while helping to protect the earth. You may be missing an opportunity to reduce your carbon footprint. At a time when all adults should be looking for ways to protect our resources while securing our comfort levels you may be missing the mark.
Hemp has proven itself to be a long-lasting, high-quality fabric that is super-soft and super-absorbent. It is cost effective and makes great uniforms. Hemp fabric is especially durable. We will all see a change in resources. This is the time to open our minds to things we may not fully understand.
