So here it is, the WWR as promised.

Hempen; adj- Of or pertaining to hemp.

I have used this word almost on a daily basis ever since I discovered it in researching my business of childrens clothing made from hemp textiles. (see TumTum Tree Designs.)
It doesn't appear in dictionaries printed after the 1940's likely due to the mandate of the US to eliminate the hemp industry.

I love this word. You should too.
