Hemp is produced from cannabis plants. The stem is the portion of the plant used for producing cannabis, while the leaves are more commonly used for weed. Hemp itself is not going to work to get anybody “high.”
Any chemicals or herbicides Hemp grows well in the field. However, cotton requires multiple farm chemicals to survive, and consumes half of the world’s sprayed pesticides. Indeed, the Hemp deep rooting method extracts contaminants and aerates the soil that supports potential crops.
Unlike cotton, hemp fibers are thicker, more strong, more insulative, and more absorbent. This basically ensures that hemp holds a person cooler in the summer and colder in the winter than cotton does.
Hemp clothing is less likely to fade than cotton, and can be transformed into a range of fabrics, including linen. Hemp fabrics are well made of soft, robust, and ultraviolet light blocks.
Hemp is also often used as a substitute for fiberglass in the automobile industry. It’s a step in the environmentally conscious direction, with hemp being biodegradable and cheaper. Hemp also has the ability to become a biodegradable material which will greatly build on current technologies.
Ford, Mercedes Benz and BMW substituted hemp for more expensive and dangerous fiberglass.
Hemp grows 3 to 8 tonnes / acre of fabric. That’s four times the sum that comes from the normal tree. Building materials can be made very strong and light into beams, studs, posts, and fiberboards using long fibers from hemp. It will conserve parks, leisure spaces and seaside lakes.
Hemp may be turned into flooring, paneling, plywood, roofing, and reinforced concrete, in addition to building support systems. Essentially, anything that is needed to be made into a house can be made from hemp in some way.
Hemp paper is of very high quality, and is not yellow with age. Typically bibles in Europe are made from hemp paper. Using hemp would save rainforests from depletion, and can recycle hemp paper much more than wood paper.
Hemp has other patented antimicrobials. This makes the lip balm, sunscreen, creams, massage oils, shampoos, and hair conditioners useful. It is also well suited for use of detergents for washing and contains a safe protein that can be found of pet foods.
Considering that half of the world’s woods are gone and just 3 percent of the original US woods remain, converting to hemp will provide the ability to restore some of these areas while also fulfilling the increasing needs in this country for them.
