All the most famous hemp products in the world
The Henry Fond held a media event in 1941. Ford then swung an ax at a prototype car made of hemp and other plant materials to prove the power of that vehicle. Technology has never been put into mass production.
The first jeans were made of hemp
The hemp stalk consists of 2 parts. The first part is the core of the woody material. The second part is a very durable fiber that can be processed into any type of fabric. The first Levi’s jeans were made of hemp due to the longevity and durability of this plant. The first American flag was also made of hemp. The use of hemp for fabric is very simple. A field of very dense hemp grows until the leaves fall off. Hemp is cut when the harvest comes. The cut hemp stays in the field for a while. Hemp is turned to the other side after being washed with rain. Thus both parts of the stem are exposed. Hemp softens during this period. Plenty of minerals are returned to the soil. Then two parts of hemp are separated: fibrous for spinning and the rest (which can be used as humus). Hemp has the longest and strongest fibers. It is extremely resistant to use and rot. It was therefore the primary source for making sails, canvas, ropes, strings and belts for hundreds of years before the first nylon was made and patented in 1937. Hemp was used for clothing, military uniforms, ship equipment, shoes, parachute straps, luggage and more. Christopher Columbus’ ships were fully equipped with hemp. Hemp is more suitable for growing than cotton, especially since today cotton is grown with pesticides and fertilizers.
Paper made from hemp
In the last 8000 years, the world has lost almost half of its forest area. Most of the loss occurred in the 20th century. This is due to the use of wood for timber and paper. Only hemp was used to make paper long ago. The technology of making paper from wood was not known until the 13th century, but hemp was used and old cloths mostly made of hemp. The Chinese text from the year 770 is the oldest printed hemp paper that exists. And the famous Gutenberg Bible was printed in 1455 on hemp paper. The American Declaration of Independence of 1776 has been preserved to this day because it was printed on indestructible hemp paper. Hemp paper does not turn yellow over time and does not contain any acids.
Composition and harvesting of hemp
Hemp consists of 77% cellulose. Unlike hemp wood, it does not require any toxic chemicals (such as dioxins and chloroform) to make paper. Hemp is a sustainable and annual crop ready for harvest in just 120 days. Trees take tens or hundreds of years to reach maturity for felling. The hemp harvest does not destroy the natural habitats of thousands of plant and animal species. In European conditions, ordinary hemp is grown, which is divided into European and East Asian. The division was due to geographical types influenced by climatic conditions and soil types (which changed the properties of hemp). The best soils for hemp cultivation are chernozems, alluvial soils and meadow black soils.
The fuel was made from hemp
Hemp oil has been used for oil lamps for centuries. In 1870, kerosene was produced and hemp oil was suppressed. There is an authentic oil and oil industry with its own profit. Today, hemp oil could be used to produce fuel for diesel engines. Hemp oil is renewable (unlike fossil fuels) and produces less toxic gases that pollute the planet Earth (80% less than carbon dioxide emissions and almost 100% less than sulfur dioxide). Plastic made from hemp is two and a half times harder and stronger than plastic made from polypropylene. It will not wear out in places fastened with screws and no mold will appear (as with fiberglass). It is not a danger to safety and health. Its components can be recycled. Over 80% of the total weight of one plant can be used. That is why hemp is important for the production of durable products.
Houses and building materials are made of hemp
Hemp-based materials can replace wood and other materials used to make houses and other buildings (including foundations, walls, roofs, formwork, pipes and paints). The 6th century hemp-reinforced bridge is located in France. The bridge is also a testament to the strength and durability of this material. Today, Mrs. France Perriere builds about 300 hemp houses a year in France. Perrier has spent years researching ways to petrify plant structure. During her research, Perrier found evidence in ancient Egyptian archeological sites about concrete with hemp. She improved the ingredient of the mixture more. She mixed the inner fiber with lime and water. This causes hemp to become a substance harder than cement with only a sixth of its weight. This material (isochanvre) is more flexible than concrete, giving it an advantage over conventional building materials (especially in earthquake-prone areas of the world). Modern building material made of hemp is light, waterproof, fire and pest resistant and self-insulating.
Cannabis is a universal remedy
Cannabis appears in almost every universal medical book written by ancient scientists, sages and doctors. It is one of the top medicines called “panacea” or “universal cure for all diseases”. Indian hemp is mainly used for treatment, although the beneficial properties of industrial hemp should not be underestimated. In the Netherlands, a kind of compromise was made regarding the use of marijuana, and there was no increase in drug addiction, quite the opposite. Cannabis successfully treats multiple sclerosis, AIDS, cancer, depression, epilepsy, glaucoma, migraine, headache, asthma, itching, scleroderma, severe pain, dystonia and insomnia. Cannabis is an excellent disinfectant, so compresses are made against wounds caused by herpes, against nausea and vomiting. It works in AHDH disorders, addiction, Alzheimer’s disease, bipolar disorder, burns, cystic fibrosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes, eczema, fibromyalgia, inflammatory bowel disease and Parkinson’s disease.
Hemp seeds and oil
Hemp seed is the perfect ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 acids that protect against cardiovascular disease. It is the richest known source of polyunsaturated essential fatty acids. Hemp seeds strengthen the body’s defense system, lower cholesterol and protect blood vessels. Seeds are a rich source of phytonutrients that protect the immune system, blood vessels, cells, skin and many organs. The seeds are easily digestible and do not cause bloating and gas. Hemp oil is nutty and green in color. It is not recommended to use it for frying because it loses its nutritional value. Consumption of hemp oil helps reduce high cholesterol and blood pressure, increases endurance, vitalizes, accelerates wound healing, reduces inflammation, irritates water in the body, strengthens immune function, reduces pain and swelling in arthritis, relieves PMS, cures bacterial infections and strengthens .
Ancient Chinese medicine
Numerous Chinese medical books have described the use of cannabis seeds – in childbirth which accelerates if there are complications or delays, for recovery after childbirth, in case of blood deficiency and accompanying febrile conditions, to relieve retained placenta in mothers who have just started breastfeeding and to increase milk flow . It helps to destroy and disperse parasites, in atherosclerosis, in irregular menstrual cycles of women, as a diuretic, to reduce blood pressure, cure dysentery and easier digestion. There are more than 60 chemicals in cannabis that can have medical benefits. There is no documented death (fatal outcome) associated with marijuana or THC overdose, nor has it been shown to cause physical dependence even in long-term consumers.
