Hemp has been cultivated around the globe for many thousands of years. It’s extremely versatile and grows in almost any climate.
Humans have been harnessing the power of this plant since the Stone Age to produce food, clothing, oils and medicine. Indeed, Oki takes its name and distinctive logo shape from a small island off Japan, where an archeological site shows signs of hemp cultivation going back to 8000 BC. Hemp and humans have a long history.
