Tang without weed would have been bearable. Weed without Tang is just wrong, man.

It's a little-known fact that the Poon Dynasty preceded the Tang Dynasty.

hulled hemp seed is a nice alternative to sesame seeds

I'm old. I remember picking the seeds out of Mexican brown weed that would make you order a Double Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger. That's my story.

One of these he UKs top nutrition experts is advocating hemp, marijuana and gorse as both nutrition and textile sources.
She's the leading professor in her field and advises government but I suspect she may be a goat.

Of course. this ignores the fact that hemp, the useful cannabis, is low on THC, will the drug quality hemp has been specailly bred to magnify the amount of THC so much people used to historical hemp are poisoned even without the additives that dealers and pushers add to spike their weed.

Both sides are mendacious and not to be trusted with the facts. And don't get me started on tobacco (hemp cigarettes seldom have fileters or FDA quality and safety controls, while smoking any thing, even salmon or potato chips can be dangerous.

Once more I am with the Doge of Venice on these matters: a plague on both your houses.

Hemp should be treated like tobacco and alcohol. Restricted, illegal to sell to the vulnerable, and taxed half to death.

Hemp seeds are high in unsaturated fats and high quality protein. When properly retted and spun* the yarn is great. When we did handweaving we said "Weaves like linen. Finishes like silk. Wears like iron." It makes good plastics and chipboard.

* Properly, not the substandard grade of binder twine found in the hippie craft tent at Renaissance Faires

There were thousands of acres of hemp fields along the south coast of Wales and hundreds employed making ropes for ships but there's not one local recipe for hemp or gorse that doesn't include feeding it to livestock and roasting the well fed animal.
I understand the need for sustainable ecology but living off forage and the occasional fish head isn't for me.

Wouldn't know about the UK's history with it that way. Mind, a couple species of amaranth was cheap and grew wild for a couple hundred years there, also very high quality. And the British have no traditional recipes for the leaves or seeds.

I do know that it has been a great high protein grain substitute nas we eat less meat

Amaranth was used to thicken a weak stew or gruel but there are other grains that do that better. From the wife's old medical books (country medicine/natural remedies) it's main use was to treat bowel complaints, diarrhoea that sort of thing.
We had two hundred years of Puritan rule that outlawed a lot of useful plants, remedies and foods.  I expect only the monasteries would have been allowed to cultivate them. The wife would also have been burnt as a witch.
