Your New Favorite Bed Sheets Are Made of Hemp
The less-popular cannabis sativa plant isn’t for smoking – it’s for sleeping.
Hemp is in. The less-famous strain of cannabis sativa won’t get you high, but it is lauded by environmentalists for its sustainability and health benefits. How to get in on it? Sleep.
Buffy, a direct-to-consumer bedding company known for an especially cool comforter, recently launched a line of hemp bedding, which they prop up as a softer, more environmentally friendly alternative to flax linen, a warm weather bedding classic. Hemp products are non-toxic, biodegradable and renewable (plus, as a crop, it doesn’t require herbicides). Additionally, hemp is a phytoremediation plant, which means they reinvigorate soil and clean the air. As far as sleep goes, it’s soft, breathable and extra durable. It’s antibacterial, too.
The reason we haven’t seen much of it yet can be traced back to a 1937 law that made hemp a narcotic drug. Despite states’ authorization allowing farmers to grow hemp, they still run the risk of getting into trouble with the federal government if they grow the crop. Thankfully, supply is booming. Here’s how to capitalize.

Features and Facts
What the Hemp?
Hemp? What the jiggins does that have to do with luxury bedlinen? It’s time to be amazed. You probably know that hemp is the fibre from the (non-intoxicating version of the) cannabis plant and has been used for thousands of years as an industrial fibre, especially for ropes, sails and sacks. Its coarseness meant no-one but the most desperate would dream of snuggling up under hemp bedsheets. But the wonder of technology means it’s now possible to process hemp and turn it into a blissful bedlinen for even the fussiest sleeper. We love hemp because it’s insanely soft and drapey and also incredibly strong and long-lasting – in fact, the more you wash it, the softer it gets.
Hemp feels wonderfully soft against your skin but the good news doesn’t stop there. It’s has excellent temperature-regulating properties, making it a great year-round choice – warm in winter and cool in the summer. Hemp contains small amounts of chemical compounds that make the fibre naturally antibacterial and hypoallergenic, so it’s a great choice for allergy-prone sleepyheads.
Sleep your Greens
Hemp is something of an environmental superstar. It’s a fast-growing crop that’s wonderfully abundant – producing double the yield of cotton when using the same amount of land. What’s more, it uses less water and because hemp is so fast-growing, weeds don’t stand a chance; farmers can avoid using large amounts of chemical weedkillers.
We rigorously test our bed linen to make sure it has what it takes to supercharge your sleep; we pay particular attention to colour fastness, longevity and washability.
