Hemp is one of the most sustainable plants available
Hemp is not only easy to grow, it uses very little resources to do so, while also helping the earth stay green.
+ Hemp is a regenerative crop, which means it absorbs more carbon than it emits (that's good!), approximately 8 to 15 tonnes of CO2 per hectare of cultivation according to Cambridge University researcher Darshil Shah. "It's even more effective than trees" Shah says.
+ It grows abundantly with little water and no pesticides or fertilizers (at least ours doesn't). Because it doesn't take much space, it creates more pulp per acre than trees, and is biodegradable!
+ Hemp plants even give back by returning nutrients to naturally enrich soil and absorb carbon dioxide.
Hemp is not all about seeds. Practically every inch of the plant can be used for other purposes.
+ Hemp oil can be used to make bioplastics, paints and, of course, for cooking and other supplements.
+ Dating back thousands of years, hemp fiber has been used from textiles to paper.
+ It's strong core, can even be used for construction! "Hempcrete" is already in use many parts of Europe.
