Why is Hemp so great?
Hemp is weed-like and as such can be easily grown without the use of harmful toxic pesticides and fertilizers. Its deep root system prevents soil erosion and maintains soil fertility, this makes hemp an ideal rotation crop. Hemp fiber is one of the strongest, most insulating and absorbent of all naturally occurring fibers. Hemp produces more pulp per acre than timber on a sustainable basis and can be used for every quality of paper. Hemp is valuable to our diet. The seeds are high in protein and contain a polyunsaturated oil which is rich in the essential fatty acids and amino acids our bodies need but cannot manufacture. The oil absorbs well into the skin making it ideal for body care products. hemp is an environment-friendly plant that can help reduce reliance on forestry, conventionally grown cotton and petrochemicals which wreak havoc on our environment and are dangerous to human and animal health.
