Did you know Hemp has over 50,000 uses?


It is hard to believe that hemp has over 50,000 uses. It is hugely productive but the government doesn’t really want you to know that. Reason being, there are a lot of industries that can be easily replaced or no longer be in need, such as fuel, chemicals, nylon and cotton. The government want to protect these industries as there is too much revenue coming in, therefore money to be lost by removing those industries.

Here are just some of the main uses –

  • Paper
  • Cloth
  • Bio Fuel
  • Food
  • Rope
  • Ink
  • Paint                                                      
  • Oils
  • Cosmetics
  • Soil filtration             
  • Biodegradable Plastic
  • Medicine
  • Hempcrete
  • Hemp fiberboard

Benefits of Hemp Manufacture:

  • Cleans oxygen
  • Removes harmful CO2 Gases
  • No Pesticides/herbicides
  • Saves the trees
  • Eco friendly
  • Sustainable
  • Highly durable
  • Healthy

Paper – More durable than regular paper and is superior quality. One acre of hemp provides as much paper as 2 – 4 acres of trees! Requires less chemicals to produce than paper. Saves the trees and prevents deforestation.

Cloth – Annually, one acre of Hemp produces as much as 2-3 acres of cotton. The fiber lasts twice as long as cotton and doesn’t mildew. The plant is frost tolerant. Its worth noting that 50 precent of the worlds pesticides are used for cotton production. Yikes.

Bio Fuel – can replace regular oil. It is sustainable and eco friendly. We can really reduce our carbon footprint greatly by making the easy switch.

Rope – strong and durable and using less chemicals to produce.

Oils – Hemp seeds are rich in protein, polyunsaturated fatty acids, omega 6, omega 3 and insoluble fiber. They are a good source of tocopherols, or Vitamin E antioxidants. They’re packed with minerals such as potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, calcium, and phosphorus, plus  microelements like strontium, thorium, arsenic and chromium. Essential fatty acids, Omega 6 and omega 3, hemp oil can be used to increase immunity, counteract aging skin and improve cardiovascular health. Several studies show that the linoleic acid present in hemp oil can slow down the aging process and fight psoriasis.

Cosmetics – it is becoming increasingly popular in beauty products. Read more about it in this article by the L.A. Times.

Soil filtration – reduces water pollution from soil runoff, eliminates erosion from logging and cleans the soil. Ready to harvest after 120 days from planting.

Biodegradable Plastic – Conventional plastic is not biodegradable. This means that our landfills will grow and grow. Plastic materials are based on a finite resource that will not be available to future generations. Plastic has many uses, from packaging of food and industrial products, phones to cars, electronic items, film, storage bottles, containers an much more. Hemp Plastics can be five times stiffer and 2.5 times stronger than polypropylene, it will not cause wear and tear to the screw and the mould like glass fibres do, and unlike glass fibres, it does not pose safety and health risks.

Hempcrete – Hemp can make roads, highways and freeways from hemp based concrete. Hempcrete, is superior to concrete in many ways. Hempcrete is fireproof, waterproof, mold and pest resistant. Hemp plastic and Hemp fiber can help with construction. Hemp can also be mixed with clay to build walls.

Hemp fiberboard – Hemp plywood is 3 times stronger than regular plywood.

Hemp use actually dates back to the Stone Age when fiber imprints were found on pottery shards in China over 10,000 years ago.
