This show is dedicated to the magical cannabis plant which, apparently, can do more than get you high.
Henry and Len, two hemp enthusiasts, joined us in the studio to discuss:
* the history of hemp
* the many uses of hemp
* the logistics (and challenges) of growing hemp in the UK
* hemp production in places like north america and eastern europe
* hemp as a catalyst for political change
* how to support decentralised, autonomous hemp production
Alongside this goodness we had a few choice ganja-based mashups as well as some weed themed tunes.
Japu Selektah wrapped things up with a tasty set of chilled out dubwise beats.
