Hemporium is a South African hemp company dedicated to educating people about industrial hemp’s potential through the use of innovative products while creating an awareness of all the hemp has to offer.
Our long term goal is to promote legislative change so that the cultivation of industrial hemp in South Africa becomes a reality. We are certain that given the opportunity to grow this sustainable crop, the hemp industry could help provide solutions to many of the challenges that this country faces by way of sustainable housing, nutrition and job creation.
Hemp’s potential goes way beyond the products we are currently producing and our two retail outlets showcasing many of the other uses such as paper, foods, cosmetics, building materials, carpets, fabric and even plastic.
Although it is necessary for us to import all of our hemp, we support the local industry by bringing in the raw materials and producing our clothing, accessories, home-ware, cosmetics and nutritional products in small factories around Cape Town.
It is our belief that for positive changes to occur on a planetary scale it is necessary for environmental consciousness to be adopted by the masses. With this in mind, we are continuing to shift the perceptions of hemp from a fringe culture into a corner stone of the mainstream.
