9 Uses of Hemp You May Not Have Known

When the founder of Hemp for Healthcare in Alaska, Sara Marie Williams, was discussing uses of hemp, she said that hemp is amazing and world-changing. Sara Marie also quoted Jack Herer, where he said that he is not sure if hemp is going to save the world, but it is the only thing that can. She further noted that lawmakers and leaders should learn everything about the hemp plant because it represents the hope for the future of Alaska and the world in general.

Hemp is defined as the phenotype of the cannabis sativa L, whose THC content is 0.3% or below. Hemp is cultivated for its derived products as well as other phytochemicals.

Hemp is environmentally friendly, and it can help in saving the world that was previously polluted through the burning fossil fuels, plastics, and deforestation.

The Hemp plant has more than 50,000 different uses that can be used to replace some of the products we use daily. Below are the several uses of hemp.

  1. To Provide Energy

Hemp biomass is used to create biofuels, such as gasoline, methane, methanol, and ethanol. Hemp biomass can also be used to produce electricity. It is a clean and renewable source of energy.

  1. It Used to Make Textiles and Clothing

Hemp fiber is used to create softer, longer-lasting, and more durable fabrics. Compared to cotton, hemp uses less water. One acre of hemp for fiber is equivalent to 2 to 3 acres of cotton.

  1. Used to Produce Building Materials

Hemp biomass can be used to make hempcrete, hemp insulation, and hemp wood. Hemp is thermal proof and fireproof, as well as sound absorbent. It is also less susceptible to mold and mildew, thereby making it an excellent building material.

  1. Packaging Materials

Hemp biomass is used to create biodegradable and compostable packaging materials that can be used instead of plastics. Hemp drinking straws can also be found online.

  1. Used to Make Paper and Wood

Hemp biomass is used to make toilet paper, wood, and paper products of all kinds, which replaces the paper made from trees, thus, conserving our trees and forests.

  1. To Make Planes, Trains, and Automobiles

In 1941, Henry Ford proved that hemp could be used to make cars in the place of steel. Porsche made a Hemp vehicle while Hempearth made an airplane out of hemp very recently. Besides, compared to steel, hemp fiber compost is ten times stronger than steel, and it is environmentally friendly.

  1. Food

Hemp seed is a plant-based source of food, which is an excellent source of nutrients such as magnesium, proteins, fatty acids, and Omega 3. It can be added to milk, pasta, or baked foods; you can also eat it alone.

  1. Environmentally Friendly

Hemp plants absorb all the toxic metals, chemicals as well as radiation from the soil, thus, cleaning it for future use. Hemp also absorbs carbon emissions.

  1. Jobs

The hemp industry is relatively new, and it is providing jobs in areas such as cultivation, processing, manufacturing, transportation, and retail positions.

Alaska’s primary economic drivers are mining, oil, tourism, and commercial fishing. Due to climate changes, the oceans are becoming more and more polluted, making it difficult for the population of 730,000 to maintain their livelihood.

For Alaska, hemp is a source of hope for economic development for the state.

Hemp for Healthcare provides the residents of Alaska with a social, political, and industrial platform to fund a new healthcare system as well as create a prison justice reform and give the homeless shelter by building them homes.

When viewed from the perspectives above, it becomes understandable why hemp companies like MCTC Holdings Inc. (OTC: MCTC) are so passionate about involving as many people as possible in the hemp industry.
