By now you are getting to know Hemp, right?

Did you know…

The first-ever Levi’s Jeans were made of Hemp… and they’re making them again…

In the 1400s Hemp was used to make rope and sails for the ships that Christopher Columbus would have sailed on?

Your next home could be made using CO2 reducing Hempcrete rather than concrete?

Since it grows quickly, organically and with an exceedingly high yield, Hemp is reported to have over 50,000 different uses.

The Environmental Benefits of Hemp

Hemp can be justifiably labelled as nature’s purifier because it captures carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, quickly cleaning the air we breathe as a result.

One incredible fact is that 1 acre of Hemp can absorb 20 times more carbon from the atmosphere than 1 acre of rain forest, according to Jamie Bartley CEO of Unyte Capital, UK Growers of Industrial Hemp

Taking just four months to grow, the yield of hemp is also incredibly fast, up to 40 times faster than harvestable trees and farmers can usually grow 2 crops per year doubling the benefit.

In addition, this not only makes it easy for sustainable farmers to add it to their annual rotation but also this amazing plant helps to regenerate the soil.

Hemp roots can grow up to nine feet deep so the soil in which hemp grows will always be strengthened with every planting, helping to restore damaged soil and subsequently give a better yield on follow-on crops thanks to the nutrients contained within the hemp plant.

I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment and yet.

What about the Economy?

So, hemp is great for the planet and great for you, the sooner we improve the knowledge around both the health and environmental benefits and when we can legally extract CBD in the UK, and not need to import we will also be able to state the industry will also be great for the economy. The triple whammy…
