Hemp Anyone?

Industrial Hemp is something that this nation should pursue vigorously.

Hemp can make clothing like cotton can but requires far fewer chemicals to produce... often none.

Hemp can be used to make fuel for vehicles and it isn't a food item.

Hemp is a highly nutritious food item that can be made into a protein powder (50% protein... no other food can do that), Hemp oil, Hemp seed, Hemp cheese and the list goes on.

Hemp is used in making lotions etc.

Hemp can be used to make building materials that are stronger yet at 1/6 the weight of concrete etc. It can be used to make a stucco as well.

Industrial Hemp is certified THC free.

This is definitely the short list for the uses of Hemp.

Re: Hemp Anyone?

Why is carpet backing with hemp not used anymore?

Carpets aren't as durable as they use to be and they say it's because they can't use hemp anymore.

Yes... due to the amazing ignorance of government growing Industrial Hemp is illegal in these United States (although there have been small successes in some states)

Industrial Hemp is a far superior product to anything we are raising today for the same uses (ie cotton etc)

Allowing Industrial Hemp to be grown would actually reduce the potency of any marijuana grown in the area because of cross pollination of the species.

There are vast differences between the plants also.

You can grown about 4 marijuana plants in a 3' x 3' spot.

You grow hundreds of Industrial hemp plants in the same space.

A farmer can have 4x the productivity off the same piece of land versus growing cotton.

Industrial Hemp legalized in this country would be a great boon for our farmers.

Re: Hemp Anyone?

It's never been grown here, but carpet use to have hemp.

Maybe there was something passed that doesn't allow them to import carpet with hemp anymore.

That could be true. I don't know.I remember my Dad had a hemp rope when I was young and he had to through it out because it was no longer legal.

Re: Hemp Anyone?

Trying to find something and ran across this:

To clear up the popular confusion about the properties of what is sometimes called industrial hemp, the crop's prospective purveyors explain that hemp and smokable marijuana share a genus and a species but are about as similar as rope and dope.

The active ingredient in marijuana is tetrahydrocannabinol, better known as THC. While hemp typically contains 0.3 percent THC, the leaves and flowers coveted by pot smokers have 5 percent or more, sometimes up to 30 percent.

"You could smoke a joint the size of a telephone pole," Hague said of hemp, "and it's not going to provide you with a high."

Experts on the subject say a headache is far more likely than a buzz.
