Hemp contains less than 1% of THC which means that Hemp is not psychoactive. Hemp seed can have up to 24% protein, is loaded with all 20 amino acids with a 1:3 ratio of Essential Fatty Acids (Omega-3 to Omega-6 with essential minerals).
Hemp can be used for textiles, rope, replacement for plastics and fiberglass, insulation, paper, building materials, beauty products, food, protein and medicine. Papers, fertilizers, nutrients and animal bedding can be made from leftover waste processes of Hemp, which means ALL parts of the plant are being used or put back into the earth.
Hemp fibers are the strongest natural fibers in the world. Hemp can yield 3-8 dry tons of fiber per acre and it takes only 100 days to mature, where a tree takes 20 to 100 years to mature. It was illegal for the early settlers of Jamestown to NOT grow Hemp.
Hemp can be used for fuel (Gasoline, Ethanol, Methanol and Methane Gas). Henry Ford’s first Model T (1941) was built to run on Hemp gasoline and was constructed of Hemp panels instead of plastic (Hemp is 10x stronger than steel!) He built this model with Hemp grown on his property. George Washington and Benjamin Franklin both had their own Hemp fields and Benjamin Franklin even used Hemp in his paper factory. The first copy of the Declaration of Independence was written on Hemp paper.
Hemp is a natural resource that is highly nutritional for both humans and animals, completely sustainable, the Hemp cultivation process requires no chemicals, pesticides or herbicides, can replace almost everything made from plastics, can be used as gasoline (Hemp biomass can even create electricity!), can be used as textiles and papers and even as medicine.
Hemp is a resource, once referred to as the Billion Dollar Crop in 1938, so embrace Hemp and the power that it holds!
