HEMP CLOTHING AND PRODUCTS
Hemp is one of the strongest, most durable natural soft fibers on the planet. It is naturally resistant to pests, molds, and is grown without pesticides and fertilizers. Hemp enriches the soil and prevents erosion, leaving the soil in excellent condition for succeeding crops. During its growing season it will supply us with much needed oxygen through the process of photosynthesis and, sheds its leaves, adding rich organic matter to the soil.
George Washington and Thomas Jefferson both grew cannabis Hemp on their plantation.25.000 products were made from Hemp until 1937 when it was outlawed. The world also had twice as many trees as today. It was used for sails and ropes on ships until the 1900's. The first American flag was made of Hemp, and the original Draft of Constitution was written on Hemp paper. Prior to this century cannabis extracts were the most commonly used medicine throughout the world.
Hemp has a variety of uses. Hemp stalk can be made into products such as fiberboard, insulation, textiles, mulch and biodegradable packaging. Hemp seed oil can be used in cosmetics, inks, industrial coatings, lubricants, detergents and food. Hemp seeds are the world's best and least expensive source of protein. Proclaimed to be nature's most perfectly balanced oil, Hemp seed oil acts as a super-rich emollient, conditioning the skin and preventing moisture loss, exactly matching the nutritional needs of the skin in essential fatty acids (EFA's), the healing fats. EFA's are responsible for the luster in your skin, hair, eyes and even your thought processes. Legitimate uses of hemp are limitless, there is one thing you can not get from it: High. Industrial Hemp is not marijuana.
The steps involved in producing Hemp fabrics are environmentally sound with nature.Hemp can produce more fiber using the same amount of land than any other natural fiber. This in turn allows less land devoted to destructive chemical agriculture and timber production. If Hemp were legal to grow in America, the dissolution of our forests could be ceased, and Hemp would flourish providing, paper, textiles, fiberboard for building materials, as well as seeds for food and oils for health and cooking. We can even run our cars with Hemp fuel. Not one barrel of oil need ever be pumped. Dependence on fossil fuel has yielded only tragedies, disastrous oil spills, fires and war! Did you know that nearly half of all the trees cut down are used to manufacture paper? One acre of Hemp produces four times the fiber for paper than one acre of trees and, it does not require chlorine bleaching. There is no reason to cut down trees for paper!
Hemp is destined to become the premier industrial raw material for the building of a new, sustainable economy.Only one thing will restore this incredible resource. A growing demand! Your dollar is your vote! Buy Hemp!
