Industrial Hemp

Industrial hemp has many uses, including paper, textiles, biodegradable plastics, health food, and fuel. It is one of the fastest growing biomasses known, and one of the earliest domesticated plants known. It also runs parallel with the “Green Future” objectives that are becoming increasingly popular. Hemp requires little to no pesticides, no herbicides, controls erosion of the topsoil, and produces oxygen. Furthermore, hemp can be used to replace many potentially harmful products, such as tree paper (the processing of which uses bleaches and other toxic chemicals, and contributes to deforestation), cosmetics, and plastics, most of which are petroleum-based and do not decompose easily.

    2. And it is illegal to cultivate in the united states. The Cananbis Sativa strains used for hemp are selected to produce an abundance of fiber and minimal levels of THC. But it is illegal. Remember that people. A PLANT IS ILLEGAL.

      Not enough thc in Hemp plants. But the sativa variety (which most hemp is made out of) does produce some of the most powerful pot.

      I remember reading somewhere that it creates ozone not oxygen. Could be remembering incorrectly.

    7. @outofocus: That would be a first for a plant, afaik.

      Picture and absatz is from here, by the way:
      en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemp

      Great article. So many uses. It’s just sad that the Federal Bureau of Narcotics needed something to attack to justify it’s existence in the 1930’s.

      I have a friend who’s very open minded, very well educated, smokes pot occasionally, and who is against hemp legalization. He thinks it’s just an excuse for hippies to grow illegal pot fields. There are so many people who are willfully ignorant of the benefits of hemp. (Not that there aren’t *some* who like hemp because it’s similar to pot).
