linen, (the first Hemp laws in Ireland were passed to destroy the Irish Linen
Industry. When Hemp was made illegal by the English the Irish linen industry
(mostly cottage based and therefore Irish owned and more than likely growing
their own Hemp to use) was forced to use cotton, imported from the English plantations, to make their linen. This reduced the quality of the linen and
therefore demand for it fell off as well. There is still examples of Hemp made
Irish Linen in some of the Royal houses in Europe today. Hemp Based Linen
lasts for hundreds of years. Cotton based Linen lasts only a few decades.)

Tribal communities and others ingest cannabis in either leaf/bud or resinous
form, this produces a dream-like state which can cause an opening up of
consciousness. Note: Only the female buds have the
constituent known as tetrahydrocarbinol or T.H.C. which produces this
euphoric effect. Ingesting seeds or male leaves does not
produce this effect.
binding for Uillenn pipes:
Uillenn pipes came into existence, their reeds have been binded using twine made from
Hemp. Hemp twine is stronger and more water resistant than other types of
twine. Up until the current unmoral laws the Uillenn pipe players were known to
grow their own patch of Hemp to make the twine from. A lot of pipe players
still use hemp twine to bind their reeds today.

Olden day Mead was made from THC active honey, The honey was taken from
beehives located next to the Hemp fields. This meant the honey was made from
Hemp pollen and during flowering season the bees would be covered in the resin when they returned to
the beehive and this would also
get mixed into the honey.
This meant the alcohol was THC active and would get you both drunk and stoned at the same time.
