Liga Appelgren have grown industrial hemp and created various hemp products for the last for 5 years. Since 2019 she has cultivated her own hemp in cooperation with the local farmers. Via the non-profit organization Hampalöv she shares the knowledge about various issues that hemp farmers in Sweden face.
Ligas’ wish is to let people know about the benefits of the hemp, let them taste it, feel it, smell it and experience it for themself. Her way to stimulate the small scale hemp farming in Sweden is by buying certified hemp seeds in bulk and repackaging it into smaller bags to make it available for the small scale growing.
