Hemp (also known as industrial hemp) is of the same species as marijuana, yet is not psychoactive- attempting to smoke it will only produce a headache and lung problems. Before the Industrial Revolution, hemp was heavily relied on to provide all manner of textiles. Since then, despite its wide versatility, it is usually only the second or third-best useful resource for all of such.
