Why Hemp?

1. Hemp is the most productive, practical, and profitable biomass farm crop on Earth – it is free of sulfur and other contaminants & could theoretically replace coal if first turned into charcoal bricks. Think about what it would mean for China & the world if we could close the carbon loop that is beginning to threaten our very existence on Earth!

2. Fabrics made from Hemp are stronger, have better thermal properties, more absorbent and more durable than cotton. Treated with an enzymatic process, textile mills can spin and weave hemp fiber as smooth as silk and as intricate as lace.

3. In Spain and elsewhere, hemp pulp is processed to make specialty cigarette paper and the special paper used in books such as bibles. Hemp paper thousands of years old proves it is the superior pulp.

4. Compressed agricultural fiberboard (CAF) using Hemp offers outstanding resistance to shock waves and earthquakes, have good insulating qualities with thermal performance on par with solid wood, but have only 40% of the density of wood making for a lighter structural product. They are more resistant to mold and decay than wood with no toxic fumes.

5. The hemp core itself has a very low lignin content that is not only perfect for paper, but extruded plastics as well. With its high proportion of cellulose, the only thing stopping the change from petrol-based plastic is enough steady supply.

6. Hempcrete is a concrete substitute that is fast becoming a superior method to constructing building walls.
