You KNOW it! Right! Like some white dude "discovered" hemp and all its usefulness. Ha. (From Wikipedia) Hibiscus cannabinus is the scientific name, see anything similar to Cannabis in that name?! Common names English: kenaf (Persian origin), Deccan hemp, Java jute... The only "discovery" this man did not reveal is that the cannabinoids from his "kenaf" stop cancer tumors from growing...and may actually reverse them. Now THAT would be an outlandish claim! GREAT DISCOVERY! (This guy and Christopher Columbus were DEFINITELY first on the scene ;) PS I met a dude at HempFest in NorCal two summers ago at a BOOTH selling this building material...this isn't original...but it IS amazing and should be getting used. Canada figured it out, almost.
