“I don’t know if hemp is going to save the world, but it’s the only thing that can”
Jack Herer, The Emperor Wears No Clothes
Having been involved in the hemp world for a fews years, it can be easy to forget that not everyone is privvy to it’s many benefits and uses. Taking only 3 months to grow from seed to harvest, without pesticides or irrigation, it can absorb up to 4 times as much co2 than trees. Also one of the best phyto-remediative plants out there, it cleans the soil that it grows in and was even planted in Chernobyl in the late 90s by a company called Phytotech. Phytoremediation can be used to remove radioactive elements, pesticides, solvents, crude oil and toxins leaching from landfills.
Once it’s grown and harvested it has over 50,000 end uses from food, clothing and paper to batteries, biofuel and hempcrete; a carbon negative building material that sequesters co2 from the atmosphere. Our counter in store is made from it! Completely fireproof and fully insulating, come and have a closer look.
