Industrial hemp can be utilized to help reverse the extensive damage caused by humans on the environment. Hemp is one of the most versatile plant cultivars on our planet and it can be manufactured into a number of finished sustainable goods such as biodegradable clothing, furniture, cosmetics, paper based goods, bio-composites, bio-fuel and even building materials for eco friendly housing.
Hemp grows over the span of a 3 to 4 month grow cycle and sequesters four times the amount of carbon dioxide that trees do. Cultivation of the hemp plant can directly help reverse the effects of global warming, not to mention you can extract medicinally beneficial non-psychoactive cannabinoids from the hemp plant such as CBD for consumption.
By educating our youth and motivating them to become fully intrenched in the future of the industrial hemp industry the Hemp Educate America Foundation is directly having an influence on the progress of building a sustainable world for future generations.
