What is Hemp Good For?


What is hemp good for?  Absolutely, or almost, everything.  

Many colonists during the 18th century.  Tired, quiet, industrious, farmers…did not have the same quarrel over weed, hemp, etc., and it’s benefits.  As we do today.  To them smoking a bone held little light over the benefits of hemp.  From clothing to food to armor and lastly, a good buzz: growing hemp had been the meal ticket for many.

When we ever learn nothing lasts.  Nothing that is unless it is of the earth.

Today and Hemp?

Plastics can be replaced with bio-plastics – hemp

Fuel with bio-fuel – hemp

We now have hemp-crete and Hemp Sport’s cars

But my new hemp-improved…favorite?

A pair of rustic, iconic…Levi’s!

Levi Strauss & Co. has created a new line of clothing made with hemp that “feels just like cotton.” Hemp requires far less water and land in the growing phase and has roughly half the carbon footprint of conventionally grown cotton but has not had wide adoption in the apparel industry because of its coarse feel. Now, however, Levi’s has employed a process developed by fiber technology specialists that softens the hemp, giving it a look and feel that is “almost indistinguishable from cotton,” the company says. The new hemp garments in the Wellthread x Outerknown spring/summer collection include jeans and a trucker jacket. They are made with a 70/30 cotton-to-hemp blend. The hemp, sourced from a rain-fed hemp crop, reduced the water used in fiber cultivation by roughly 30%.

  1. I love this post! Hemp oil helps me with my M.E and have wrote blogs about this, would love your opinion✨

    1. I have used hemp, cbd oil, and plain old pot for OCD, chronic arthritis and asundry of other things. Hemp in particular is a way out of the plastic mess we are in. Plastic makes money, recycling makes money for Big Brother…not recycling makes money for Big Brother. Until Hemp is utilized for it’s potential, we will continue to destroy our earth with landfills and plastic oceans.
