    How Hemp could overtake the Cotton Industry - El Capitan | Smoking Accessories

    Hemp is thriving as a global consumer product all over the world not only thanks to the gain in popularity of CBD products in the medical community but also there are hundreds of use cases that are used by people right now that are gaining traction. In fact, we dedicated an entire blog to this topic and found over 100 real-life examples. Today we want to present one of these specific use cases that we believe will have a big impact on the future of the fashion industry: The use of Hemp as a base product for clothing.

    First of all  Hemp is a very eco-friendly crop that requires little use of water and is resistant to most regions with a higher temperature.  It also has one main super power, it renews the soil after each growth cycle. The plant also only has a growth cycle from 3 to 4 month. Furthermore it requires no chemical pesticides and on top of all it produces 2x more fiber per acre than Cotton. Speaking of Cotton, let’s compare that to today's super star around the crops for retail: Cotton makes up for 25% of the global use of pesticides. It also has a growth cycle of more than 8 month and requires 5x times more water in comparison to Hemp. 

    But there are also benefits for the end consumer as clothing made of hemp fiber is lightweight and absorbent. It also is more resistant to water and cold then most traditional options. After finishing the research for this article we have decided to look into suppliers for our clothing line that can offer Hemp based clothing in high quality. So feel free to reach out if you can recommend anyone.

    We hope that more companies will follow this example and further create higher demand which will lead to easier accessibility for the wider masses. What do you think, can you imagine a future where Hemp has replaced Cotton? let us know your opinion and thoughts in the comments.

    And as always..
