Benefits of Hemp

The benefits of hemp are extremely wide due to the versatility of the plant as not only a food but as medicine, fuel and other industrial uses. It can be used in so many different ways. Unfortunately for the world, hemp and the cannabis plant has been heavily regulated and kept out of mainstream markets over the last hundred years. However that’s all changing now as people open up to the incredible benefits of hemp and demand government regulation change.

About Hemp

Industrial

For hundreds of years hemp has played a role as an important industrial material. Used to make many commercial products such as paper, rope, textiles and canvas.

About History

    All types of paper for example newspaper, computer paper, toilet paper, cardboard, can be made from hemp.

    According to the US Department of Agriculture, an acre of hemp can produce four times more paper than an acre of trees. No other tree or plant is capable of producing as much paper as hemp, making it a potential solution to saving millions of acres of forests. While trees take 20-50 years to grow and mature for industrial use, a hemp plant can grow between 3 and 6 metres tall within 4 months to be harvested.

Hemp can be substituted for cotton to make textiles and clothing

The hemp fibre is up to 10 times stronger than cotton. Hemp can grow in a wide range of climates, whereas cotton is only grown in warm areas and requires enormous amounts of water compared to hemp. As a result you may now notice more clothing made from a hemp and cotton blend, 50/50 as it’s stronger and more environmentally friendly.

Compared to cotton and other crops, hemp doesn’t attract the levels of insects and diseases and therefore requires little to no pesticides and no herbicides. Cotton for example is responsible for half of all pesticide use in the United State.

Wood like building materials can be made from hemp that are stronger and cheaper than wood.

Fuel

Hemp grown for the production of biomass fuels can end the dependency on fossil fuels. Hemp biomass has virtually no residual sulphur or ash during combustion.

It can be used in a closed system with no CO2 being added to the atmosphere. As much, hemp has more potential as a clean enewable energy source than any other crop.

With such a wide variety of benefits, we hope governments start making it easier for this incredible plant to flourish.
