Why Industrial Hemp?

Hemp is legendary

Its durability unparalleled. Until the advent of synthetics, cannabis hemp was the standard fiber of the world. In fact, the word “canvas” derives from “cannabis.” Hemp is being used today by hundreds of businesses around the world – The Body Shop, Patagonia, Armani, Calvin Klein, BMW, GM/Canada and Mercedes Benz to name a few.

“Anything that can be made from a hydrocarbon can be made from a carbohydrate.”

Hemp is durable

It’s several times stronger than cotton. It’s more resistant to abrasion and tears. It’s more resistant to mildew, soiling, shrinkage and the deteriorating effects of the sun.

Hemp is renewable

Hemp grows throughout the world without pesticides or herbicides and naturally fertilizes the soil for future crops.
Hemp can be cultivated in as little as 100 days compared to the 50-500 years it can take to grow a tree.
10,000 acres of hemp can produce as much paper as 40,000 acres of trees. It makes superior paper and is considered archival in quality. Hemp produces three times as much fiber per acre as cotton without the pesticide and herbicide use.
Hemp's long tap root and nutritious qualities make it a natural for crop rotation. In fact, Hemp crops are being used in the outlaying regions of Chernobyl, in Ukraine, to leach out the radioactive soil and, in turn, rejuvenating and fertilizing the soil naturally.
