Hemp Profit Potential
The key to unlocking hemp’s potential lies in making use of the entire plant. Most people think that the only value in the hemp plant is the leaves, but that could not be further from the truth. Not just in taking the seeds for food and replanting, but using the stalks for fiber and making everything from car parts to bricks to kitty litter. Hemp is an incredible source of protein and can be grown and sown in large fields just like canola or wheat. Compared to chicken breasts, hemp has more than twice the amount of protein, more good fats, fibers, vitamins and minerals, and no cholesterol. Major grocers like Whole Foods are already stocking hemp-based products.
Faster and Easier to Grow
Industrial hemp is lighter, stronger, and less expensive than wood products. Did you know that four acres of trees produce the same amount of cellulose fiber as just one acre of hemp? Also, hemp takes just 100 days to grow to a stage where its fibers can be used where a tree could take anywhere from 20-100 years to re harvest.
10 tons of hemp can be grown on an acre of land in just 100 days, making it the world’s BEST biomass source.
If you remember, less than 5% of the United States’ once lush virgin forest remains. The thing is, it is a huge country with lots of space available, and we only need 6% of it to produce 100% of the biomass our nation needs.
