History

Who is Old Hemp?

Prohibitionists cast hemp in a negative light, but historically, the crop was associated with strength and functionality. A certain 19th-century stud dog epitomizes this point. Born in 1893, the famed sheepdog became the progenitor of the prestigious Border Collie breed. If you want a hard-working dog, you probably want to give it a strong and sturdy name, and his owner did. He named his stud Old Hemp. Before anyone gets too excited, no, hemp is not the answer to low sperm counts or ED, but the crop certainly can be part of the answer to global problems in farming, health, construction, food, sustainability and the environment.
