Hemp 10 Ways

Besides being used for creating our amazing products, Hemp is also used for many other things. Check it out:

  • Hemp Clothing is naturally chemical-free. Hemp grows faster than weeds and unlike conventional cotton, it requires no pesticides or herbicides.
  • Hemp Rope is 10x stronger than cotton rope. Hemp fibers are one of the strongest plant fibers out there! Betsy Ross made the very first American flag out of Hemp!
  • Hempcrete is one of the most durable building materials. Hempcrete is mold resistant, fire resistant, pest resistant, waterproof and breathable.
  • Hemp Paper goes all the way back to the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution which were both written on Hemp. It takes 100 days for Hemp to grow an acre of land and for trees it can take up to 50-100 years!
  • Hemp Canvas: The famous painters Rembrant and Van Gogh were known to paint on hemp canvases.
  • Hemp Fuel is capable of running a diesel engine. Rudolf Diesel used filtered hemp oil “hempoline” and other oils from vegetables and plants to power the Diesel engine.
  • Hemp Car was made by Henry Ford in 1941 that ran entirely on Hemp ethanol. The body was also constructed from Hemp plastic, which is 10x stronger than steel!
  • Hemp Ink made from hemp oil. It can be used as a base for non-toxic inks. They even dry faster too!
  • Hemp Carpet can reduce indoor pollution. Synthetic materials used to create the fibers of traditional carpet are filled with toxic chemicals and trap allergens, debris, and other pollutants. When made with eco-friendly hemp, carpet is 100% biodegradable.
  • Hemp Batteries can help save the planet! Hemp based batteries can outperform current energy storing technologies, which means this can be a replacement for non-environmentally friendly battery units.
