Hemp Farming in America

Farmers Rejoice!

We are teetering on the brink of putting Hemp Farming back into action in America.  In fact, we are so close, I choose to visualize it as already here and happening! Read along and see if you will join me….

Why Hemp Farming?

The growth of Hemp, influences our entire planet in the most benevolent and spectacular ways.

Hemp is a God given plant that was ruthlessly taken away from us, generations ago, against all common sense.

What’s the big deal about Hemp?

Hemp grows like a weed.
It grows quickly, in just about any climate. using little water and no pesticides, herbicides or fertilizer.

Hemp anchors securely with its deep taper roots which aerate the soil and prevents erosion.

Hemp eats radiation and removes toxic metals from the soil.

Hemp breathes in four times the carbon dioxide (CO2) of trees during it’s quick 12-14 week growing cycle.

Hemp produces more fiber per acre than trees, cotton or flax.

Trees take 20 years to mature:
Hemp takes 4 months and can be harvested 2 – 3 times per year.

It takes 4 acres of trees to produce as much cellulose fiber pulp
as 1 acre of hemp.

Nothing is wasted in the production of hemp:

  • seeds for oils and food supplements
  • stalks for fiber
  • after harvest, what’s left in the fields, feeds the soil

WHY ARE WE NOT GROWING HEMP????

Politics!

Early in the 20th Century, began a campaign of disinformation, which reflects direct contrast to the scientific evidence.  The cousin plant, Marijuana, was targeted for reason to ban Hemp.

Hemp that is grown for its fiber has no ability to get you high with less than 0.3% THC (TetraHydroCannabinol), the psychoactive cannabinoid.

Hemp crop is easy to grow, extremely versatile and great for the planet.

Farmers whose current crop is experiencing a loss of demand, are taking serious hard looks at farming hemp. They are getting themselves in position to farm hemp in the US.

Thanx to Rhode Island’s “Hemp Growth Act” which went into effect on January 1, 2017. Laws governing industrial hemp have now evolved in a total of 33 states.

Under the “Hemp Growth Act” individuals will be allowed to obtain a state license to cultivate hemp for things like food, clothing or other commercial products. With the new Act, hemp is now treated as “an agricultural product that may be legally produced, possessed, distributed and commercially traded.

  1. Wow! I had no idea how versatile hemp is, and if truth be told, since I don’t see it, hear of it, or use it for anything other than rope or string perhaps, I don’t really think of it much. Your terrific article sparked my interest in it. I garden and if it becomes legal, perhaps I will try to grow some and put it to good use. Thanks for all the info.
