    Hemp Bound

    Dispatches from the Front Lines of the Next Agricultural Revolution

    In Hemp Bound, bestselling author Doug Fine embarks on a journey to meet the men and women who are testing, researching, and pioneering hemp's use in the twenty-first century. Hemp's fibers are among the planet's strongest, its seed oil the most nutritious, and its potential as an energy source vast and untapped. It's one downside? For nearly a century, it's been illegal to grow industrial cannabis in the United States. As the prohibition on hemp's psychoactive cousin winds down, one of humanity's longest-utilized plants will help rejuvenate the American economy.
