Why Hemp?

​Hemp is the only plant that can feed you, house you, cloth you and heal you!

  • Produce over 50,000 commercial products - Textiles, construction materials, oils, foods, and medicine

  • Can grown almost anywhere in the World

  • Doesn't deplete soil

  • Deep roots help preserve the top soil

  • The world's most nutritious seed

  • Growing time is only 3-4 months

  • Edible vegetarian protein including all essential amino acids, as well as Omega's 3, 6 , 9 essential fatty acids

  • Renewable and no need for genetic modification because it's naturally resistant to pests and weeds.

  • Multiple uses - hemp fiber, hemp seed, hemp seed oil, CBD oil, just to name a few.


Hemp plants rapidly capture carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.  For every ton of hemp produced, 163 Tons of Carbon is removed from the air, making the air that we breath much cleaner!

long history

Hemp has been grown for at least 12,000 years for food, fiber and fuel.

From 1000 BC to 1900 AD hemp was the planet's largest agricultural crop.

A Popular Mechanics article from 1938 stated that over 25,000 different products could be made from hemp in oil, seed or fiber form.


Hemp fiber can be used in the creation of Hempcrete, Hemp Board and Hemp Insulation.  Not only saving our forests but changing the way we build.

Lightweight, lasts 100's of years and become stronger over time.  Reduces framing costs by 30-40%, is energy efficient, flame resistant, non-toxic and is mold resistant.  It is a breathable material and carbon negative.  This is a 2,000 year old technique.

highly resistant

Hemp plants are highly resistant to most insects and disease, largely eliminating the need for pesticides and herbicides.

save our trees

We can save 3-6 billion trees per year if we switch back to using hemp products  instead of timber.  It takes 90 days to grow hemp and 15+ years to grow trees.  Hemp produces 4x the pulp per acre.  In 1916 the U.S. Government predicted that by the 1940's all paper would come from hemp and that no more trees would need to be cut down.  Government studies reported that 1 acre of hemp equals 4.1 acres of trees.  Plans were in the works to implement such programs until big money companies stopped the legislation.


Switching entirely from plastic to biodegradable, no toxic hemp plastic.  Less costs and saving the environment & wildlife.  Total degradation in 120 days and replenishes the soil.

Hemp can produce nearly 4x as much oil per acre as the current sources of biodiesel.  It would only take 6% of U.S. land to produce enough hemp to fuel the entire country.
