Scholarly Press to Publish Peer-Reviewed Journal on Industrial Hemp

Haworth Press will begin publication of the Journal of Industrial Hemp (JIH) in the spring of 2002. The new bi-annual publication will serve as the official journal of the Industrial Hemp Association (IHA), and will document the latest peer-reviewed research on the production and processing of industrial hemp.
Hemp is a distinct variety of the plant species cannabis sativa L. that contains minimal (less than 1%) amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. It is a tall, slender fibrous plant similar to flax or kenaf, various parts of which may be utilized in the making of textiles, paper, paints, clothing, plastics, cosmetics, foodstuffs, insulation, animal feed, and other products.
Haworth Press publishes over 180 scholarly journals, including the Journal of Cannabis Therapeutics, edited by Montana neurologist Ethan Russo.
