The History of Hemp
Sustainability of Hemp
Cotton fabrics use a quarter of the worlds pesticides and require 5,000 gallons of water to product 2 pounds of fabric. Hemp takes half the land and 10% of the water to produce the same amount, which could have incredible implications for our textile industry.
Hemp can be harvested up to four times per year because it grows rapidly while using only a fraction of the land compared to other crops. For example, to produce paper, it takes 4 acres and 20 years to make the pulp. For paper made from hemp, it requires 1 acre and 3 months to make the same amount.
Hemp requires little to no pesticides or herbicides, resulting in products that are safe for us and the environment. Our hemp products are also organic – we go above and beyond to provide you the safest and highest quality CBD.
Large scale hemp farms, like ours, have the potential to greatly reduce carbon emissions. Hemp removes significantly more carbon from the air per acre compared to other crops. For every 1 ton of hemp produces, 1.62 tons of carbon dioxide are removed from the atmosphere.
Hemp naturally kills bacteria, meaning that fabrics made from hemp are cleaner and safer for us compared to traditional cotton or synthetic polyester.
Hemp fiber is incredibly strong, but still degradable through composting. Hemp has been recommended as an alternative to fiberglass and plastic, meaning it can greatly reduce pollution rates while still providing high quality products.
