Said to be capable of producing over 25,000 products the Hemp plant is the one of the most versatile plant we have on this planet! Yes, hemp contains <0.3% THC (as per the collective agreement of people), but at that percentage it would just be a waste of time to sit there and try to smoke it to feel high (medicinal cannabis is more around 16.0% and higher). Hemp can contain many other beneficial cannabinoids and terpenoids that are used to feed ones EndoCannabinoid System.
Hemp can be used more than just smoke and vape therapy:
Just like our own bodies that work more efficiently with organic, nutrient rich food, the Earth can benefit from using more natural based organic material for everyday uses. Hemp can be used for over 25,000 products from rope, fabrics, plastics, construction (Hempcrete), biodiesel, etc.
“In 1916, the U.S. Government predicted that by the 1940s all paper would come from hemp and that no more trees need to be cut down. Government studies report that 1 acre of hemp equals 4.1 acres of trees. Plans were in the works to implement such programs.” (U.S. Department of Agriculture Archives.)
Hemp is the crop of the Eco-friendly future. One could grow 3-8 dry tons of fiber per acre compared to wood which would have to use 4x as much. This also includes sucking up 4x
the amount of carbon dioxide in the air and producing more fresh oxygen and clean up radiation. This is due to the fact that hemp can grow very close to one another. The limited spacing makes it difficult for weeds to grow and is naturally pest-resistance. Farmers can eliminate the use of toxic herbicides and pesticides. This is a hardy plant and will grow in a wide variety of climates and soil types.
Obviously as you can tell the product list is overwhelming and raises the the question of why aren’t more individuals and companies growing more hemp to be used in their products?
