Hemp is the planet’s most eco-friendly crop. It can provide food, clothing and shelter as well as thousands of every day products such as towels, soaps, plastics and even fuel. Politicians have thwarted the hemp industry for decades, but educated consumers such as yourself are learning about the true benefits of hemp and times are changing. People are beginning to understand that hemp is not marijuana and how purchasing hemp products has an immediate positive effect on the environment. Hemp products help reduce pollution by reducing our consumption of non-renewable resources and is the solution for many of the issues we face today concerning the environment.



Hemp has been used by humans for more than 10,000 years. It all began in China where it was first used as a source of food, because the hempseed is a superfood and full of nutrients. They quickly learned they could use if for textiles, rope and bow string for hunting. Although named after papyrus, the first plant used to make paper, paper as we know it today traces its roots back to China at the beginning of the first millennium AD, which was made from hemp. The very word canvas, is derived from the word cannabis

FOOD

Hemp is believed to be the first agricultural crop and was initially grown for the consumption of its seed. Hemp seed is a superfood and one of the most nutritious items on Earth. The seed itself has a hull, or shell and hemp seed for human consumption is typically hulled, or de-shelled. The seed can also be cold pressed for its oil and the remainder is ground into protein powder, or flour.

BODY CARE

The hemp seed is a superfood and one of the most nutritious items on Earth. Hemp is rich in Omegas, packed with protein and an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. Utilizing hemp in your diet can help with weight loss, lower cholesterol, reduce blood pressure/inflammation, improve brain function/circulation/immune system.
CLOTHING/TEXTILES

The textile industry is one of the most pollution causing industries worldwide. Between the pesticides used when growing cotton, to the manufacturing of clothes.
PAPER/CARDBOARD
Hemp, when made into papers and cardboards, offers us more jobs, less pollution and fewer acres of forests chopped down.
PLASTICS
Half of the crude oil used each year is produced into plastics. Hemp can be made into plastic and reduce the amount of oil we use drastically.
CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS

The healthiest building material on the planet.
FUEL: Hemp can be made into biodiesel by using the hempseed oil, or into an ethanol biofuel.

Today, over half the states in the union (26) have legalized industrial hemp in one way or another, but only a handful of states have legislation in place to allow hemp farming today. Urging politicians to recognize the virtues of hemp is of upmost importance, so please Take Action and visit our friends at Vote Hemp to help.

Hemp prohibition is the result of propaganda by the petrochemical, cotton, and wood-based paper industries, who foresaw competition from hemp. Virtually anything that can be made from petroleum can be made from hempseed and other vegetable oils at a much lesser cost, and hemp fiber is many times more durable and resourceful than cotton or wood-based paper. Let’s restore our right to grow this resourceful crop!
