Cultural aspect of Hemp that binds the world together

Hemp culture goes a long way - from ancient China being one the oldest cultivators of Hemp, to Japan for weaving clothes and ropes, America pronouncing hemp as a billion dollar crop, Middle Eastern countries used hemp for its fiber, the Soviet union, UK and Europe where hemp agriculture was most common from back in the day. India glorified this crop to be a sacred plant for all the medicinal properties it carried. Amazing to know how it was a part of almost every culture worldwide, isn't it? :) Most common factor being the use of Hemp in food across continents.
