Tony Budden is at the forefront of hemp and the legalization of this versatile plant in South Africa. He founded Hemporium in 1996 with Tony and his business partner, Duncan Parker, being committed to showcasing all that hemp has to offer by providing quality products made from this eco-friendly and versatile plant. Tony and Hemporium are 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.
At Hemporium, Tony is dedicated to providing eco-friendly solutions to the global need for sustainable materials. Through his online hemp shop, they offer high quality, innovative products to raise awareness of the incredible versatility of industrial hemp.
