Hemporium is a South African hemp company, founded in 1996, that is committed to showcasing all that hemp has to offer by providing quality products made from this eco-friendly and versatile plant. Hemporium is actively lobbying for legislation change in order to allow farmers to grow this beneficial resource so that we can source all our products, from seed to shirt, locally.
“Hemp” refers to the industrial uses of the Cannabis Sativa plant. Hemp varieties are typically non-psychoactive and are prized for the eco-friendly fibre, biomass and nutritious seeds.
Here at the Hemporium, we are dedicated to providing eco-friendly solutions to the global need for sustainable materials. Through our online hemp shop, we offer high quality, innovative products to raise awareness of the incredible versatility of industrial hemp. You can also call in at our hemp shop in Cape Town, South Africa, or find our products at several retailers around the country. See “contact us” for more.
House of Hemp (HoH) is a 100% woman black owned proudly South African company that was founded in 1998 by Dr. Thandeka R. Kunene based in Johannesburg, South Africa.
House of Hemp is a member of the National Hemp Foundation (NHF) and has served as the Convener of the NHF’s Human Resource Development Group (in the first phase) and is currently the Coordinator of the NHF’s Private Sector Working Group.
In 2010 House of Hemp became the first private company to be awarded a 6 year exclusive permit from the Department of Agriculture and the Department of Health to legally cultivate and process hemp in South Africa. The endeavour for a robust expansion into a new industrial market led to House of Hemp’s interest in the supply of hemp fibres and oils as well as related by-products (tow, biomass, dust, seedcake) for more sustainable industrial uses with significant and varied applications on a global stage.
