Hemp can change the future of our planet. Hemp has the ability to repair some of the damage we as humans have done and can also prevent future problems. In this blog, we will look at 5 ways this wonder crop can help.
Our forests are disappearing at a rapid pace. Hemp can save our trees. One acre of hemp can produce the same amount of paper as 4 acres of trees. Trees take years and years to grow whereas hemp takes only a few months to mature. And hemp can do everything a tree can! Paper, wood, flooring, toilet paper, and more. Hemp also converts CO2 to oxygen better than trees. Why wouldn’t we switch to hemp and leave our poor trees alone?
The bee population is declining rapidly. Without bees we are nothing. We need bees to pollinate the plants that we need to survive. Because of climate change and pesticide use, bees are dying at an alarming rate. A recent study out of Colorado revealed that bees love hemp. The hemp’s pollen attracts a variety of bees and could help sustain their population. More hemp means more bees!
Hemp can absorb toxins and contaminants from our soil and groundwater, a process known as phytoremediation. Heavy metals and toxic chemicals are absorbed through the long, extensive root structure and stored in the leaves and stems of the plant. It can basically erase some of the damage that has been done to our earth from industrial waste, farming pesticides and even radiation contamination. The deep root system also prevents soil erosion. Hemp does not require harmful chemicals or pesticides to grow resulting in no soil contamination. It also replenishes the soil with nitrogen and nutrients increasing its fertility.
Reduce greenhouse gases
Hemp can pull more carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere than trees or any other plant. This can have a huge effect on global warming. Just one hectare of industrial hemp can absorb 22 tonnes of CO2. Hemp can grow almost anywhere, in almost any weather or soil condition and takes little space to grow. This means it can be planted in areas otherwise deemed unusable. More hemp means better air quality!
Can Be Used To Make Almost Anything
Hemp has been said to have over 50000 uses. It can be used to make steel, clothing, food, biofuel, paper, plastic just to name a few! Hemp products are biodegradable, reusable and recyclable. Using hemp will reduce the negative impact that other industries create.
As you can see, growing and using hemp can have a significant impact on our earth and its future. By switching to hemp you will be helping to create a greener and healthier planet to live on.
