Industrial hemp comes from the cannabis sativa plant and is grown for commercial use. It is rich in two essential fatty acids, linoleic (omega-6) and linolenic (omega-3), and is used in an extensive range of products.

Industrial hemp, also known as hemp seeds, is also a rich source of magnesium, vitamin B6, vitamin B2, vitamin B1, potassium, calcium and vitamin D, among others. Additionally, industrial hemp contains proteins and can be utilized in the production of various food products, including hemp oil, hemp milk, hemp-based protein powder and hemp cheese substitutes. Hemp seeds are also used in the production of ethanol, which is currently processed from food crops such as wheat and corn.

Furthermore, industrial hemp helps create ecofriendly fabrics with textures similar to linen. The fabric, which is very flexible, is also used in other products, including dog collars, home wares, accessories and shoes.

The report was published by “Allied Market Research.”

As the hemp market grows, there is likely to be a corresponding growth in the demand for solutions such as mass spectrometry and process controls made by entities such as Astrotech Corp. (NASDAQ: ASTC) that are needed by companies making different products from industrial hemp.
