Why Hemp?

Why chose hemp over any other product? 

 

Hemp is the most diverse and environmentally sound crop that can be grown, with thousands of uses

Henry Ford built one of his first cars from hemp plastic, and Rudolph Diesel built an engine to run on hemp fuel

Hemp can be grown in practically any climate, and needs no pesticides to be grown

Hemp can be grown with 10% the water of conventional cotton

All products that are derived from timber or petroleum can be sustainably derived from hemp, including plastic

Until its prohibition hemp was the world’s most traded commodity

Growing hemp for fuel absorbs Carbon Dioxide and helps combat climate change.

Burning hemp for fuel produces very little Carbon Dioxide and practically no Sulphur, unlike petroleum

Growing hemp would allow nations worldwide to grow clean fuel, renewable medicines, paper, food and plastics

Jesus was said to use cannabis oil to anoint and heal the crippled, and original copies of the Bible were printed on hemp paper

Hemp can produce 10 times more methanol than corn.

Trees cut down to make paper take 50 to 500 years to grow, while hemp can be cultivated in as little as 100 days and can yield 4 times more paper over a 20 year period.
