Hemp Made Plastics: Are They Available

European Hemp Field

As of right now there are some hemp made plastics available on the market. The more laws we change the more hemp made plastic products you will see. You will see an increase in many hemp products, not just plastic.

Most of the progress that I have seen with hemp products have come from California and Colorado. Colorado is in the lead for plastics as of right now too.

This is a screenshot from my phone to show that Colorado is leading the way with this! All it takes to start saving our planet is changing some laws and growing some hemp! We have the geniuses to create our products that we need already!! They are bored and need something to do too!

Screenshot from my Galaxy S6

This is a much-needed change for our environment! Hemp products are biodegradable and more recyclable than other products available. With as renewable as hemp is, we will not run short on the supply as long as there are farmers willing to grow it.

Right now most of our hemp products are either imported or the hemp fiber is imported so the product can be made. This is way more expensive of a production than need be. And creates higher prices for the consumer in the long run, how crazy is that!?!

If we grew our own hemp the cost of production would drop significantly, and we would have more American made products on our shelves at better prices for the consumer, that are better for the environment. And they would help significantly improve our economy as well. That is clearly a win win for the United States.

Molded Plastics

There are quite a few companies that are using hemp in their plastics and composite materials. The uses vary depending on the need as with any material.

Ford, GM, BMW, and quite a few other car manufacturers use hemp in the creation of the interior plastic door panels and more. Pretty much anything that is hard plastic inside and out. Your gas cap probably contains hemp products and all the fixtures around the lights that are plastic.

Hemp Plastic Molding for Car Assembly

Hemp Resin Sink Basin

There are building supplies that contain hemp like the molded sinks and bathtubs. PVC could be made from hemp, and should be with as much is used in the construction of one house or office building alone!

Clear Plastics

The screenshot I provided above is the first I have heard of clear plastics like water bottles and straws, which are two of the major environmental crusades right now, and rightfully so! This is why we need to change some laws, I should be able to find a bunch of hemp made plastic items available. You can reach the company’s website at www.growhempcolorado.com

Hemp Made Plastics Could Help The Environment A Lot

As I stated we need to change the laws so we don’t see more of this!

Plastics and Other Pollution in Water Ways

Our oceans are so filled with plastics and other crap that just won’t biodegrade. It washes up on beaches, and if you are out in the ocean you can come across mass collections of plastic bottles and junk that is just there forever, I guess. It was not there in the past, before these harmful petroleum based plastics were created!

Recycling Bins

No matter what we change to making our plastics out of we still have to remember to recycle, it is still important! Even with totally biodegradable plastics, at the rate we use them and dispose of them, we would be facing issues without recycling. They may not be as alarming, but issues are issues.

I will be researching more on this topic as it is just as important at the fuel and paper.

Please feel free to leave a comment about this article. I will get back to you as soon as possible, I love a great discussion.

Thank you as always.

There Is No High From Industrial Hemp: Why Was There Ever An Issue With It Being Legal

It is true, there is no “high” from Industrial Hemp. This species of the cannabis family contains CBD and little to no THC. THC is the compound in marijuana that does create the “high” feeling. Industrial Hemp only contains about 0.3% THC, which is not nearly enough to get anyone “high”, your lungs would fail first.

So how did this plant get lumped in with its cousin marijuana? Well that all goes way back to the late 1930’s, when the Marijuana Tax Act was passed and enforced. This made marijuana illegal in the United States. Industrial Hemp was lumped in because it was said to be too much like marijuana. This is so false!

Marijuana Plant in Full Bloom

English Hemp

They do not look the same while growing, they do not mature at the same rate, and they have different uses and effects. The such notable differences, one still wonders how they got lumped together, it just makes no sense!

Before all that nonsense, industrial hemp was used worldwide. It was hard to process the fiber from the core, but one farmer created a machine that could do it easier. His name was Bernagozzi he created the decorticator in the early 1861, and it was the foundation to finding ways of easier removal of hemp’s fiber from the core.

Industrial Hemp Characteristics, Facts, and Uses

Let’s start with this plant’s appearance and how you would plant and grow this species. Industrial Hemp can reach heights of 20ft. and has very few branches, leaves, and flowers that are mainly located at the top of the plant. This gives a long stalk for long fibers.

Hemp Farm

When you plant hemp, you plant the plants’ very close together, like maybe 4″ apart at the most. This leaves no room for competitive weeds to integrate your hemp crop.

This plant will grow in just about any climate aside from Antarctica, and requires very little attention. Insects are not drawn to it, so there is no need for pesticides. Pesticides are a huge part of the honeybee population issue!

Female Hemp Flower

Hemp is actually good for the soil compared to crops we use for similar product making. Acting as a filter of sorts, hemp removes a lot of toxins from the dirt and air. Growing hemp cleanses the air we breathe better than trees and most other plants’ as well.

Eating hemp products is very good for you and you have some choices as well. You can eat the seeds either raw or toasted, you can use hemp seed oil in a variety of things, there are hemp protein shakes, and milk and ice cream as well. There are a variety of foods and beverages to choose from.

The fibers from hemp have natural anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial properties and are naturally hypoallergenic as well. It is considered to be one of the strongest fibers known to mankind. There are many uses for the fibers including, but not limited to, rope, canvas, clothing, linen, and paper.

There are two different types of oils that can be made from this plant, CBD Oil, and Hemp Seed Oil. CBD Oils are more for medicinal uses, whereas Hemp Seed Oil has unlimited uses from food, make-up, and shampoos to wood stains. Every part of this plant is rich in fatty plant protein (a perfect balance of omega 3 and 6 at a 3:1 ratio). It is very healthy for the human diet and for skin and hair care products as well.

Believe it or not, plastics can be made from industrial hemp as well. This is not a new thing, but laws prohibited the study of what hemp’s possibilities are, so we are revisiting old inventions and coming up with new ones every day. From what I understand there are plastic moldings that can be made as well as drinking straws and water bottles.

Alas, there are three kinds of bio fuel that can be made from hemp as well as everything else. Hemp Bio Diesel, Ethanol, and Methanol. We can safely use all of these fuels, their emission is what we breathe, that is no joke! The bio diesel is made from the seeds, where the ethanol and methanol are made from fermented stalks. We don’t even have to modify the vehicles we use now!

Industrial hemp would be grown mostly for industrial and consumption purposes, and right now is legal in all 50 states.

Marijuana Characteristics and Uses

Marijuana plants are a beautiful plants’ if you enjoy their foliage. These plants’ have more branches, leaves, and flowers (buds) and are very aromatic. They grow more bushy and need some room for proper development. They also require more attention, and climate control for the optimal product.They are in a sense more fragile and needy compared to industrial hemp even though they “seem” to grow like a weed as well and are very hearty plants.

Marijuana Bud Haze

Marijuana Bud Diesel

Marijuana Bud Kush

While there are two types of marijuana, Indica and Sativa, there are many strains of marijuana, some more powerful than others, some more tasty than others it depends on what you like in your marijuana.

For this particular type of cannabis there are two uses, medical and recreational. The medical uses are still being studied, and some are yet to be approved. This is when doing your research comes in very handy! Make sure you get your information from a reliable source as well. I like to use Britannica or Wikipedia (depending on what I am looking for).

As always, check with your doctor or physician, never self diagnose or treat any illness, whether it is physical or mental!

I am sure that if someone wanted to take the time to make something from the stems, there could be an industrial use as well, but as far as I know there is nothing of the sort yet. I am sure that this would have a lot to do with it being illegal in most states right now.

Before trying to use marijuana you should check your states laws so you know where you stand legally!

How Would Legalizing Marijuana Help Industial Hemp

Legalizing marijuana would be the start of opening doors for the growth and production of hemp nationwide! As mentioned before, they were lumped together in the same bill that outlawed them.

For marijuana to become legal, it would bring hemp right along with it, and all the restrictions that were put on the growing and processing of hemp would lift. And this could happen nationwide if we are smart and vote for it!

Marijuana is not the dangerous drug it was said to be, it would be beneficial to legalize it. In fact, my personal experience with it is, that it is quite calming and relaxing. I do not get agitated or overly excited, and I can still function quite well!

I work at a high stress job that requires a lot of physical energy as well. Smoking before work for concentration on opening the restaurant, and then I smoke when I get home to calm down from the busy hustle and bustle of a day. I choose not to smoke during the day, it is just my personal choice. I do live in Colorado, the laws here are for medical and recreational, which I find quite wonderful!

Legalizing these plants nationwide would be a public service in the long run! There are many environmental factors, health and nutrition factors, and it would open many new jobs if we begin using hemp products, not just CBD, but industrial products as well!

Thanks for reading my article, I hope you found some insight, or I shed the light on any shady areas. Please feel free to comment below. I love a good discussion.

Thank you as always.

Could Hemp Completely Replace Petroleum

Rush Hour Traffic

With our country having well over 30 million miles of roads to drive on, and the amount of people we have driving on them; we should be thinking about the fuel that goes into our gas tanks, and what it is putting into our air.

We all know, or should know by now, that the petroleum fuels are very harmful to our environment, and our own health. Which leads me to wondering why we as consumers have not demanded a safer fuel much sooner.

The technology for making bio fuels is not new at all. As a matter of fact, the very first diesel engine invented by Rudolf Diesel was made to run on peanut oil that he made as well. He displayed his invention at the World Exhibition in Paris in 1900, that’s well over 100 years ago people!

Instead of using fuels made of vegetables, we somehow ended up with petroleum based fuel instead. Big money in the wrong hands can create very evil things is all I can say.

Hemp Diesel Really?

Yes you can make diesel fuel from hemp just like any vegetable or nut. I am not a scientist at all, but I don’t have to be to say that we should be using a renewable resource that is non-invasive to our planet, to make our fuel from.

Biodiesel is the only type of alternative fuel that can run conventional, unmodified diesel engines without creating issues.

It is as biodegradable as sugar and less toxic than salt, so it can be stored anywhere and is very safe to transport. Petroleum fuels cannot make these claims. The flash point for this fuel is 300 degrees versus petroleum’s 125 degree flash point.

This fuel is 11% oxygen by weight and has absolutely no sulfur in it. Using this fuel can extend the life of your diesel engine because it is more lubricating than it’s petroleum counter part.

I was surprised to find out that you can just dump hemp oil into your diesel tank, just the way it comes from the press. I would have thought there had to be more processing involved.

Hemp Oil

I got my information from cannopycorp.com, they are a company that is dedicated to developing Industrial Hemp in all aspects. They are involved with developing hemp in many ways including foods, bio fuels, plastics, construction materials, and phyto chemicals studies and productions.

Ethanol Made of Hemp Too!

While the biodiesel is made from the seed of the plant, ethanol is made from the stalk fermenting. Through gasification, acid hydrolysis, and enzyme processes hemp can be made into ethanol and methanol. Yeah that’s a mouth full for me to, say it ten times real fast.

Ethanol Currently at Gas Stations

All joking aside, this fuel is a wonderful replacement for ethanol. You will not need to modify your vehicles gas engine at all to use it either.

Hemp beats out corn in making methanol, it can make 10x more than corn, corn is the leader in bio fuels right now, but Industrial Hemp is a much better source, and can be grown without the use of pesticides. This is good news to our poor honey bees that are dying off at rapid rates due to pesticides.

We all know that the petroleum fuels are putting carbon monoxide into our air at rapid rates. Well Bio fuels like Industrial Hemp, help to maintain the natural balance of the earth’s natural 02 andCO2 levels.

With the new laws being passed legalizing the use of Indutrial Hemp, in turn it gives the right to grow hemp back to the American farmers. Industrial Hemp could very well become the new fuel of the world. Not to mention all the other products that can be made with this wonderful plant.

Lamp Oils

Using oil lamps is an old school thing of course, but did you know that hemp seed oil can be used as lamp oil as well. Our Declaration of Independence and Constitution of the United States was drafted on hemp paper, and more than likely the oil used to fuel the lamp for light was hemp oil.

Oil Lamps

It is said to illuminate a room better than any other lamp oil. And the cook off is probably a lot more pleasant than other oils as well. Used with a hemp wick it was probably a cleaner burning combination than what is used now.

My mom used oil lamps when I was a kid, she kept them around for the power outages and what not. I have no clue what was in the oils we burned freely in our living room and bedrooms, I can bet you my whole paycheck that it was not hemp oil! And we did not have the hemp wicks either. I do know that when set close to a wall, the smoke turned the walls black.

Lubricants

I have been searching for a motor oil made from hemp seed and so far I have not found one. I keep getting turned back to the bio diesel. Hemp Oil is said to be more lubricating in the engine than petroleum fuels. I will keep up my search on this one.

Okay, so we are all adults here, did you know that they are making lubrication for sex from hemp seed oil. Apparently this has been in practice for some time now, in past years it was combined with animal fat to create sexual lubricants. Honestly I had no clue what-so-ever.

The reviews I read say it is slippery, and does not get that sticky feeling that other lubricants leave you with. Rather, it leaves your skin smooth and almost silky, with no odors to mingle with our natural aroma.

Then there are the health and beauty lotions and oils made from hemp as well. These lotions claim to not only soften the skin, but also to be a naturally anti-aging agent as well.

As to which, this I can say, I love my hemp lotion and after shower/bath oil. I get compliments on how young I look all the time. I am 45 years young and very proud of every year of it! Most women are ashamed or embarrassed of their age, NOT ME!

Hemp Really Can Do Everything Petroleum Can!

Yes it can and more!

Industrial Hemp can be used in every single aspect of our lives, that is how versatile hemp is. It can do everything that wood, cotton, and petroleum can do combined.

Russian Hemp Field

It is beginning to make so much sense as to why the competitors felt the need to shut down the growth and production of Industrial Hemp. Hemp was just to well know, too reliable and renewable, and had way too many uses for them to compete with.

Thank heavens times are changing! People across the world are starting to see through the lies we have been blinded with for so many years. The world being told that hemp and marijuana are dangerous to our society and mankind as a whole, that’s just the biggest crock I have ever heard!

Whereas these competitors of Industrial Hemp, used lies and fear to get the public to stop using Industrial Hemp, I want to persuade people to use Industrial Hemp with the truth. I do my research to find facts.

One fact that I have found is that the 100% hemp car supposedly built by Henry Ford isn’t quite all the stories claim. Firstly it is not 100% hemp, there are many other materials that were used as well, and the car was never finished.

Not saying anything bad here, I just don’t want people to be mislead. I want people to make a clear and honest decision about using Industrial Hemp, not one filled with myths and lies.

In recent times there has been a car body that is made of 100% hemp, that also runs on hemp fuel. Jay Leno drove it on his show “Jay Leno’s Garage”. This car body is said to be more durable than any car on the market today, and lighter as well.

This vehicle was made by Bruce Dietzen a retired Dell executive. Bruce created this car in 2017 and named it Renew. Bruce was inspired by Ford’s hemp vehicle creation, and took it a step further, he drives his.

I am fascinated with every search that I do on Industrial Hemp and it’s uses. I encourage everyone to do some research on this topic. I am sure you will be quite stunned as to what you find as well.

Hemp Not Just For CBD: The Very Fiber

With so many issues with our environment these days, we really need some alternative renewable resources.

Hemp is a rapidly regrowing natural resource, and so very many products could be made from it. It makes perfect sense to use these items, and one should wonder why we have not been.

Pro-Hemp Poster

Pro-Hemp Poster

Even if the Government didn’t want us to use Industrial Hemp as a renewable resource, we the American public, should have stood up and said, “Well that’s all fine and dandy, but we are not using petroleum based products because they are not safe in the long run.”

But we did not, instead we became the sheep they wanted and went onto using the petroleum based products they shoved in our faces, in place of industrial hemp products.

Well now it’s time to stop being “sheep” and make some smart consumer decisions that will save our planet in the long run. Yes, these products cost a little more right now, but the more we demand them, the lower the cost eventually becomes.

This is because they have to be mass-produced versus being produced on smaller scales as they are now. Alas, the products become the “norm” in our daily lives, and in turn our planet slowly begins the healing process.

Here are a few product ideas that we could implement into our daily lives and start making some wonderful changes for our planet.

Quality Hemp Writing And Drawing Paper

Egg Shell Hemp Paper

Egg Shell Hemp Paper

Paper made from hemp is superior to that made of wood pulp. To start with hemp has the perfect genealogy for making paper as it has a high level of cellulose, wood does not. When making paper from wood the process is very unfriendly to the environment as it requires the use of poisonous chemicals that contaminate the large amounts of water used in the making.

Making paper from hemp is not like this at all, with the high amounts of cellulose there is no need for the poisonous chemicals to be used, nor is there a large amount of water use in the process. And the paper is of a much higher quality, is more recyclable, last longer, and is naturally acid free.

Manila Hemp Paper Close-Up

Manila Hemp Paper Close-up

By continuing to use trees for making paper, we are essentially ravaging three natural resources that we desperately need. Our water supply, our air supply, and our trees. I don’t see the harm in checking out these products and buying one or all. Follow the title link to check out a nice deal on hemp paper.

Hemp Skin Care Products

Who knew that hemp seed oil would turn out to be extremely good for your skin?!? I had no clue, but apparently it is one of the best skin care products available. It contains a lot of much-needed fatty acids that our bodies don’t create at all but are very helpful, like omega 3 and omega 6. It helps to maintain a healthy moisture level which can help with premature aging, and it seems that it can help with acne, eczema, and psoriasis as well.

Why on earth isn’t this in every skin care product? It seems like we got the shaft when hemp was lumped with marijuana, and farmers stopped growing it!

Hemp Clothing Apparel

When it comes to our clothes, we care very much what they are made of and how they look and feel. There are so many fabrics to choose from, have you tried hemp fabric?

It is available in many colors and textures, and it is said to be stronger and last longer than cotton. Instead of wearing out like cotton, hemp cloth just gets softer and more comfortable.

Hemp fabric also is less likely to mold or mildew because of its anti-bacterial properties. And the fabric is breathable, so it has the ability to wick moisture away from your body, and it does not hold odors.

The fibers can also be made into textiles such as carpet and rugs, and ropes and cables as the fibers are very strong! I read somewhere that hemp netting can be stronger than steel in some applications. That totally blew me away, and yes I encourage you to look it up!

You can buy shoes and accessories, like hand bags and jewelry, made of hemp as well. The list of items one can buy that are made of hemp or contain hemp is just astounding!

So knowing what you know now about hemp cloth and textile uses, are you wondering even more as to why this plant was put into such a dark corner for so long? You can visit https://en.m.wikipedia.org for even more information on hemp fabric.

Bio-diesel And Ethanol

This is probably one of the best kept secrets! The big oil companies do not want you to wake up and smell this coffee, but I sure do!

Well now I have seen it all! What a total shame that this fuel has not been on the market for years! It is much safer for the environment than any of the fuels made from petroleum!

This fuel is said to be safer to make and transport, and if it spills, it is totally biodegradable. I can see that this is an issue for the oil companies as they cannot offer such safety precautions.

You can check this out at www.cannopycorp.com, they have a wonderful article about bio fuels. 

Hemp Really Can Be The Very Fiber Of Our Society

Hemp Fabric Product Variety Box

Hemp Fabric Product Variety Box

If we stop and look at what all hemp can be used for in our everyday lives, and the impact it has on our environment to use it. One has to ask themselves why we are not utilizing this plant for all it is worth?!?

Personally I think we should put a ban on buying any product that we deem harmful to the environment and replace it with a hemp based replica. We have to start somewhere and being a lazy society, we really are, this is a very simple and stealthy proposal of change.

To me, it just makes sense to start acting now if you have not already begun, we can only take our planet for granted for so long. Then we get an eviction notice in the form of Global Warming and Ice Ages and Catastrophic Weather Conditions.

The only requirement from the public is to buy hemp products no matter what they are, and support your local hemp grower. Vote for laws that benefit farmers to grow hemp, and bills that encourage scientists to research the full potentials of hemp.

How Using Hemp Can Help To Save The Planet In Many Ways

flyer by Stacie Fortson

I am not a scientist, but I don’t think I have to be to say that our planet needs help! There are so many things we can be doing but we are not, and so many that we are doing, but they just don’t seem to be enough.

Maybe we should try some things we can do but, we currently do not. Easy things, such as using hemp made products on a large scale. These products are environmentally sound, and easy to make. They just need to be more readily available for consumers, and be made affordable.

We as consumers have this voice, but we have to change the way we purchase, if we expect to see any changes. We have to start demanding and buying the hemp made products for them to be in demand and readily available.

The American public has more control over what is offered for sale than they realize. It is in our everyday purchases that bring about new products and materials. Manufacturer’s rely on our buying habits as to what they produce and how much.

If you think about it, the trend for bottled water hit, and there is bottled water companies everywhere producing more bottled water than you can shake a stick at. This can be said with any trending item.

We as consumers can change the way products are made, we can demand the quality we desire of each and every product we purchase from everday products to trendy products. In the long run we will be helping save the planet with all of our purchases, even the trendy ones.

THIS, HOWEVER, CANNOT SIMPLY BE A TREND.

SAVING THE PLANET CANNOT BE A TREND.

Industrial hemp brings a lot to the table on this subject. It can be used for so many things it would make you head spin!

One of the safest bio fuels (diesel and ethanol) can be made from hemp seeds. Plastics, paper of all sorts, clothing, food, fabrics, medicine, and so much more can also be made from hemp fiber pulp and seed. This plant has endless uses and more to be discovered in years to come.

Making paper goods from hemp is ideal as it can produce about 4x the amount of paper per acre of trees. Hemp also replenishes way faster than trees, it only takes about 130 days from seed to harvest for a whole field of hemp, versus 40 to 50 years for a mature tree to grow. Also, it is so toxic to make paper from trees with the chemicals required, and it requires a huge amount of water that is useless and toxic in the end.

Making hemp paper paper is not like that at all, there are no harmful chemicals involved, there is no reason. Hemp paper last longer and recycles better and is naturally acid free. A lot of professions require acid free paper, and wood pulp paper has to be specially treated to be acid free.

As an artist I know for a fact I prefer acid free paper! Who wants their work on paper that will turn yellow with age, get brittle and fall apart? Not me, and I don’t even sell my work, I hang it on my own walls.

Hemp fabric is far superior to that of cotton and such. Hemp fibers a longer and stronger than cotton fibers, also hemp has natural wicking abilites and is hypoalergenic and antifungal. I have a pair of hemp fiber jeans that I would not trade for my very soul, I swear! They are the most comfortable jeans in my collection and I want more. They do not seem to be showing age like regular denim jeans and they are comfy straight from the dryer, I wear them a lot, so they should be showing more age than the rest of my jeans and they just don’t.

Why Don’t We Know More About Industrial Hemp?

We would know more about hemp and all it could be used for already, but it was banned in the United States in the 1930’s during the drug wars. Of course the U.S. Government knew that hemp should not have been lumped in with any drug and nor should have marijuana. But see there was this little thing call fear of competition coming from the cotton growers, oil drilling companies, and logging companies. Hemp threatened the existence of all three.

This fear lead to hemp to being bunched in with marijuana as a drug that would ruin society.

Our fore fathers grew hemp and used it for many purposes prior to this. Industrial hemp was grown by every farmer, and used for so many things including sails for battleships, rope, clothing, lamp oil, and medicine. Until the late 1930’s, hemp was the very fiber of our country’s industries.

Hemp Field, Europe
Hemp Field, Europe

A high tax on farmers growing hemp slowed the growth, but eventually it became taboo to grow industrial hemp because marijuana was illegal and they were grouped together.

Very few farmers continued to grow it, and all major progress of processing the plant ceased.

Can Enough Hemp Be Grown To Supply Public Demand of Products?

The answer is YES!

If enough farmers get on board and start growing hemp we would have a whole new industry of jobs within four months.

Industrial hemp grows very fast, like 4 months from seed to harvest. In some areas you can get 2 harvests from one field, maybe three depending on the year. And hemp will grow pretty much anywhere, it is a lot like a weed, it adapts to its environment to thrive.

Hemp requires very little care to grow, you plant the seeds and pray for sun and rain or start watering them. Mother nature’s finest is all hemp requires to grow a high yielding crop.

The hemp plant does not allow for other weeds to grow in its field, it “chokes” them out as they say in the plant world. So there for there will not be any weed killers used.

Very few if any insects are drawn to industrial hemp, because of the strength of it’s stalk, so that also cuts the pesticides to a minimal or to not even being used.

There is enough farm land in the world to start growing hemp on a very large scale. All we need are some laws to change nationwide and willing farmers.

Is It Easy To Process Industrial Hemp

Right now the processing of hemp is very laborious, a lot of it is done by hand. If it were to be used on a daily basis in our society, the processing would have to be made simpler and more mechanical to be efficient.

Nonetheless, if we change our buying habits to hemp products, the production of hemp products would increase and force a change in the industrial end of things.  This would open up thousands of new jobs, potentially nationwide.

We have a huge population full of demands, this being said, we also have some very smart people in our huge demanding population.

The issue of needing simpler processing could be very short-lived with new inventions. So come on geniuses of the world, we need you brain power right now!

How Can This Be Made Possible and Is It Feasible?

This can be made possible by the huge demanding population that we are, demanding hemp products. We could request that stores carry hemp paper products and then refuse to buy any wood paper products.

We can do this same thing with plastics, and fuels as well. If we do not demand these changes, we will not get them.

It really is that simple, and yes it will cost the industrial world to switch over to produce the hemp products that impact our environment, but it is the industrial world’s fault as to why we are where we are with this anyhow.

Had they not let the big oil tycoons, cotton growers, synthetic fabric makers, and others to pad their pockets back in the 30’s, we would probably still have hemp in our daily lives and our planet might not be in such turmoil.

If you think that the big tycoons will not adapt, you are crazy. We are the ones that are paying for their big nice houses, fancy cars, vacations, super fat salaries, and other aspects of their expensive lifestyles. They don’t want that to stop, so they will make the changes we are asking for or we will pay someone else to and they will go broke.

It is that simple.

We really must make a stand and take action now and start using hemp products, and other natural products, we have to stop using petroleum based products no matter what they are, that industry really needs to be shut down.

Petroleum being one of the worst, the other is the paper industry. We can make paper from hemp or cotton more efficiently and safer than using trees. Yet, we continue to allow clear cutting every day, as we cannot seem to stop buying wood paper products.

The Major changes are the more simple ones on the consumer end, its just a different product that we put in our shopping cart or fuel tank, we are still paying for it no matter. It is just costing the planet less.

Industrial Hemp Could Be The Answer To Saving The Planet

If we stop clear cutting trees for the processing of paper alone it will save acres upon acres of trees every year. We need these trees as part of our already diminishing ecosystem, they provide oxygen, shade, and shelter. We have already allowed the rain forest to be ravaged and it will never grow back the same, it’s just gone, forever.

Clear Cur Forest

I have often thought of what is going on under the surface of the earth from the massive crude oil drilling. The oil companies just pump the oil out of the ground like there will be no repercussions whats-so-ever. I disagree! I think there are now voids that will create potential catastrophic repercussions. If they are leaving voids as I suspect, there is a potential for collapse or cave-ins, and they drill in the ocean too guys.

I say, if we can get by without ever drilling for another drop of crude oil we should, we will be better off in the long run.

Oil Drilling Rig In the Ocean

If we changed those two things alone, our planet would start recovering.

Yes it will take time, but I think my daughter would see a difference in her lifetime, she is in her early teens. I think that by the time she is my age there would already be a substantial amount of tree regrowth. I am 45 so that would give 30 years of trees not being clear cut, but planted instead.

We don’t need to know how to make the items we need, as consumers, we just need to find our voices and demand they be available regardless.

CBD Oil and Marijuana legalization could be the best thing that has happened for our environment yet! This will inspire more inventions and uses to be derived from the plant.

That is what my website is about, promoting the use of all Industrial Hemp made products to help save the planet.

I am an affiliate marketer and I will have plenty of product reviews and general informational topic articles as well to help you shop green.

Please feel free to scroll through my reviews and purchase items that you like. This is how we will help make the marketing changes that we drastically need. One step at a time can turn into leaps and bounds before we know it so shop away!

I sincerely hope I have helped at least one person with my website. I would love to hear you opinion of my site or on the topic in general.

Thank you for taking the time to read my article out of the many online.
