Why Hemp?
Hemp is a renewable and multi-faceted plant that does not require pesticides and enormous amounts of water. The list of things that hemp is able to offer humanity is never-ending. Some of the most important issues:

1. Chronic illnesses and deficiencies; Cannabinoid therapy

2. Depleting polluted soils; Mulching hemp can rebuild soils and when grown hemp is a bio-accumulator, removing toxins from soils.

3. Unstable economy; Hemp could be the green renewable economy

4. Subsidy reliant farmers; Offer farmers a reliable and generous source of income for what could be a huge green industry

5. Dependency on toxic plastics; Biodegradable Hemp Plastics

6. Unstable global supply chains; British/Local industry

7. Atmospheric carbon; Sequesters 5 x more carbon into the soil than same area of trees

8. Extraction; reliance on finite resources / Invasion of sovereign nations; Hemp offers renewable alternatives to lithium, carbon fibre, wood, metals, oil etc.

9. Malnutrition; Plant-based source of omegas, protein and fibre

10. Unsustainable fast fashion/ plastic based clothes; Hemp is a natural plant based fibre textile, which is very durable and more sustainable alternative to cotton and polymers

11. Toxic building practises; Hempcrete is a carbon-positive, vapour permeable, chemical free natural building material
