rvahempsociety "PLASTICS: Hemp hurds and fiber have over 50% cellulose, the building blocks of plastics. Biodegradable hemp plastics could reduce landfill waste and display unique strength characteristics. Oil based plastics produce biproducts of sulfur and carbon monoxide and do not biodegrade.
PAPER: Hemp pulp paper doesn't require toxic bleaching chemicals and lasts hundreds of years longer than paper made from trees. It is stronger, and can be recycled many more times than tree paper. An acre of hemp can produce as much pulp as an acre of treesover a 20 year growing cycle. That's a lot of printer paper!
HOMES: Hempcrete homes, a mixture of hemp and lime, are fire, water, and rodent proof, with excellent elasticity, strength and breathability, which cuts energy costs. Washington State Univ. found hemp board to be three times stronger than plywood.
CLOTHES: Hemp is among the longest, strongest, most elastic, and most durable fibers in nature. Hemp is stronger, more durable, softer, more UV protective, warmer, and won't mildew or rot like cotton fiber, which requires 25% of the worlds crop chemicals."

  •   thehempcrusader Love your page!! So informative and educational. 9h
  •   thehempcrusader @Setista I would join the HIA! There is a website for it and they send you free stuff and updates regarding new and up starting companies. Not sure how to get a job through it but the more you know the better chance you'll have at finding a company that specializes in hemp! @nocturnalcaturpillar I would follow @manitobaharvest or Nutiva Food products! They seem to be the global leaders in hemp seed production. @saving_planet_earth They do not directly combat depression. However, they are extremely healthy and have been known to help with your metabolic processes and immune system! A Healthy body is a happy body @absolutely.owen ABSOLUTELY, OWEN!!! 9h

rvahempsociety "FOOD: Hemp seed provides nearly complete nutrition with all 10 essential amino acids, all 4 essential fatty acids (EFAs) in the ratio recommended by health experts, and over 30% protein in its most easily digestible forms, making hemp the ideal protein, and ideal food for human consumption.
FEED: Hemp meal provides all the essential protein that livestock require, yet doesn't require any antibiotics to digest. When cows eat corn they cannot digest it, needing antibiotics to keep from being sick, which makes the antibiotics less effective on the humans that consume the beef. Hemp is also an excellent animal bedding for horses.
BODY CARE: Because of hemp oils high EFA content, especially GLA, hemp helps cells to communicate to rebuild cell membranes, which keeps the skin from getting dry by enabling skin cells to hold onto moisture in their natural lipid layers.
OIL: Hemp oil can be made into non-toxic paints, varnishes, lubricants, and sealants. The paints last longer, and the sealants are better absorbed by wood.
FUELS: Hemp biomass can produce electricity from sulfur-free charcoal, as well as ethanol, yet these industries will be the last to develop due to the high value of hemp food. Hemp can easily be made into biodiesel fuel as well.
CARS: European plants are making auto panels from hemp based composites that are biodegradable, half the weight of, more durable, and safer than fiberglass counterparts."

rvahempsociety "Industrial hemp requires half as much water as cotton and produces two and a half more times the fiber, all without pesticides. Hemp also has the lowest ecological footprint when compared to cotton and polyester, according to a 2005 report by the Stockholm Environment Institute. This means that while Texas farmers are losing out on half of their cotton acreage during these drought filled years, industrial hemp could be a viable experimental crop..." http://bit.ly/1tA2jr3 #VoteHemp
