‘The Hemp Revolution’ covers with every historical and contemporary facet of hemp usage and cultivation mainly in the U.S.

It describes how the production of hemp is much more durable and economic than wood and has multilateral uses as e.g. food products, as a non-polluting fuel and as a pharmaceutical product with much less grievous side-effects than chemical pharmaceutical products.

The film also investigates why America went from producing vast quantities of the non-narcotic industrial hemp to the complete ban on hemp production in 1938. It unravels the fact that the large oil-based industries actually had a key role in the ban.

The documentary concludes that hemp may prove to be a valid substitute to both oil and wood in the future.
