INDUSTRIAL HEMP: Fascinating Information

INDUSTRIAL HEMP: Fascinating Information

I want to share some fascinating information with you about industrial hemp. Did you know that during WWI, farmers were growing hemp in exchange for American dollars? It’s a versatile plant with incredible potential to counteract oil and the dollar. Sadly, despite all its benefits, it’s currently forbidden. Let me tell you why.

Firstly, did you know that one hectare of hemp produces as much oxygen as 25 hectares of forest? And that same hectare can produce the same amount of paper as 4 hectares of trees, which is pretty amazing. Plus, hemp can be turned into paper eight times, while a tree can only be turned into paper three times. And it only takes four months to grow, whereas trees take 20-50 years to mature.

But it’s not just good for paper production. Hemp is also an effective radiation trap, and can be grown anywhere in the world with minimal water and no need for pesticides. In fact, the widespread use of textiles made from hemp could render the pesticide industry obsolete. Plus, it’s a versatile material for things like ropes, laces, handbags, shoes, and hats.

But that’s not all. C@nnabis can be used to holistically treat patients for a vast Arab of diseases. And hemp seeds have a high protein value, and the two fatty acids they contain are not found anywhere else in nature. It’s even cheaper to produce than soy, and animals that eat it don’t require hormone supplements.

And the environmental benefits are staggering. All plastic products can be made from hemp, and hemp plastic is easily biodegradable. A car body made of hemp would be 10 times stronger than steel. Hemp can also be used to insulate buildings, as it’s durable, flexible, and inexpensive. And soaps and cosmetics made from hemp do not pollute water, making them environmentally friendly.

I’m hopeful that we can change this. With more awareness about the potential benefits of industrial hemp, we can work towards legalizing it and using it to create a more sustainable future. So let’s keep spreading the word and advocating for change.
