“Hemp’s Uses And Benefits”
So what can Hemp do for you and me?
Not only is Industrial Hemp (iHemp) a sustainable and eco-friendly crop , its extremely useful. iHemp actually refers to the industrial variant which is cultivated for its fiber, hurd (the coarse parts of ihemp that adhere to the fiber after it is separated), and seeds, as well as the other natural healing compounds found in its leaves. As more people start paying attention to iHemp, more facts are shared to demonstrate the power of this plant—hence why it’s often called a “Wonder Crop.” What has really been highlighted is the hemp seed’s nutritional benefits and its fiber’s durability. Hemp has been known to have over 25,000 applications.
iHemp is truly an amazing plant with the potential to help “green up” many industries. It can be refined into a variety of commercial items, including paper, textiles, clothing, biodegradable plastics, paint, insulation, biofuel, food, and animal feed. iHemp was a desired fiber until alternative textiles and synthetics were created.
Now iHemp oils, CBD, iHemp plastics, iHemp building materials and many other fiber products can be seen and purchased on the market.
In addition to providing useful fibers, iHemp seed also has high nutritional value. iHemp foods including but not limited to iHemp energy bars, iHemp salad dressing, iHemp milk, iHemp protein shakes, iHemp oil gel caps and iHemp protein powder are among some of the health products being produced today.
iHemp derived CBD is very useful for health and the business of producing and selling CBD is thriving. iHemp building materials are another growing segment of the iHemp industry. Canada is now a leader in the global iHemp food/health marketplace. Canadian iHemp products are found in many ihemp markets in the United States and many other countries.
iHemp is a do-it-all plant. From textiles to super-food to building material to medicine, iHemp can do just about anything you can imagine.
iHemp has other interesting environmental uses. Here are a few:
1. It’s carbon negative, which means it absorbs more carbon from the atmosphere during its growth than is emitted by the equipment used to harvest, process and transport it.
2. It’s adaptive to growing in many environments and climates,
3. It doesn’t need herbicides because it’s tightly spaced thus preventing weeds from growing.
4. It’s naturally resistant to most pests so wouldn’t need much in the way of pesticides to grow,
5. It’s less water intensive than many other plants,
6. Its cultivation nurtures the soil by extracting toxins and returning nitrogen and other nutrients,
7. It’s cultivation is protective of the soil,
8. It has 25,000+ environmentally responsible industrial and consumer applications including bioplastics, composites, construction materials, high protein foods and beverages, health-promoting food supplements, textiles, paper products, biofuel, graphene substitutes.
9. It provides late season food source for bees, land reclamation and removes contaminants in the soil.
