WITH OVER ONE MILLION ACRES TO PLANT, WHAT WILL YOU CREATE WITH HEMP?
Industrial Hemp used to clean up chemical spills
Hemp hurd is the only plant material that will petrify when mixed with a little lime and water, sets up like concrete yet will remain breathable allowing moisture to absorb and escape for hundreds of years. Leftover pieces of stem and stalk made into small chunk form pieces.
Hemp Biomass can create electricity. Hemp hurd can produce ten tons of biomass per acre every 4 months. Enough biomass could be produced on 6% of US land mass to provide energy for the entire country!
Through a heat process called “Pyrolysis”, hemp hurds can be cleanly converted into gasoline. This hemp biomass can also make Ethanol, Methanol and Methane Gas.
On an annual basis, 1 acre of hemp will produce as much fiber as 4 acres of cotton. Hemp fiber is stronger and softer than cotton, lasts twice as long as cotton, and will not mildew. Hemp is frost tolerant, requires only moderate amounts of water. Hemp does not require the use of pesticides and herbicides--50% of the world's pesticides/herbicides are used in the production of cotton.
The outer bast fibers of the stalk can be grown and produced to spec. Tell us the length of fiber you need and our decorticator will cut it to spec. One of the most valuable components of hemp is the fiber and it remains one of the earth's strongest natural products. Hemp is resistant to rot & abrasion; has been used for ship rigging, military uniforms, parachute webbing and more. Hemp can yield 3-8 dry tons of fiber per acre, FOUR TIMES what an average forest can yield.

Almost anything plastic can be made from hemp into hemp plastic. Crazy, we know. Vinyl and oil-based plastics release chemical gases and odors from their ingredients and are manufactured with non-renewable and chemical resources. They end up in a landfill where they don't decompose and release dangerous substances into the ground. Hemp is naturally resistant to mold and bacteria and is also quick drying which means it won't trap moisture. It's also incredibly durable, adaptable to molding and completely biodegradable. Imagine that on a global scale.
HIGH TECH HEMP and HEMP CARBON NANO-SHEETS
Hemp inner bark fibers, or "bast fibers," are similar to yarn in their outward appearance; however, when looked at under the microscope, they reveal themselves as a remarkable nano-scale composite consisting of semi-cellulose, lignin and crystalline cellulose. The latter makes up around 70 percent of the material by weight, and is the component of interest to researchers, as it can be processed to obtain graphene-like carbon nano-sheets.

Researchers in Canada have now reported the successful hydrothermal-based synthesis of two-dimensional, yet interconnected, carbon nano-sheets with superior electro-chemical storage properties comparable to those of state-of-the-art graphene-based electrodes. We are truly in awe.

Over 75 US manufacturers make hemp products. Industrial hemp has more than 5,000 applications in the textile industry alone. Industrial hemp also has over 25,000 total uses including dynamite and cellophane.
Anything made from cotton, timber, or petroleum can be made from hemp. Bast and fiber are parts of the plant stalk core, which are used in thousands of products; plastics, building materials, animal feed and bedding, insulation and bio-diesel. Hemp is edible, wearable, absorbent, fire resistant, mildew and mold resistant, breathable, water resistant, a sound insulator, termite resistant, insect and rodent resistant, a breathable insulator.
Use hemp to replace anything typically made from plastic, use it for buildings, car construction (inside and out), textiles, animal feed, and bio fuel.
We have top grade fiber/hurd. Our prices are very competitive and our hurd uses a multi layer process of vetted quality driven strains, to provide optimum industrial uses, perfect for natural materials, nano-technology/graphene and plastics.
The hemp plant soaks up toxic metals. It has been proven that hemp can eliminate toxins from the environment. Hemp is so successful at absorbing toxic materials it has been used for eliminating nuclear radiation from Fukushima and Chernobyl.
