Hemp paper can be extracted from both the bast and the hurd. The paper from the bast is hemp paper and that from the hurd is pulp paper.

    Fibre paper was the first kind of paper whose first batch was made out of hemp in ancient China. It is thin, tough, brittle, and a little rough. It is stronger than pulp paper.

    Pulp paper is not as strong as fibre paper but is softer, thicker, and preferred for everyday purpose.

    The paper used today comes from chemical pulp. Hemp paper can be made without chemicals directly from the hemp hurd. This alternative presents an opportunity for humankind to create an affordable and eco-friendly paper that can be used for practically all needs.
