Hemp is a valuable crop because of its stalk and seed and has many benefits over multiple things. The outer part of the hemp seed is called the cake, which is fibrous and starchy and is now being famously used as cattle feed.
The hemp oil is extracted from the seed, which like many oils, has a variety of usages, not only as fuel but in a range of products such as paints, varnishes, and inks.
The other component is the nut, which is extremely nutritious (rich in omega-3s.) The nuts are commercially sold and used in different dessert products. In fact, the seed itself is a highly demanded product from the industry as it is very much liked in muffins, cookies, and homemade trail mixes and energy bars.
The stalk creates the kinds of products that are majorly associated with hemp, as known by the people. The bast fiber of the stalk is used to make industrial products like clothing, canvas, bags, and rope. Other elements of the hemp stalk are used in the making of paper products and cardboard—major uses of hemp stalk—as well as ethanol.
