Do you think it could disrupt inefficient and toxic markets if hemp was mass produced (grown) and processed into different eco-friendly mixes such as the hemp crete (hemp+lime) being just one example. When materials are mass produced(grown) the price goes down right?
I know this keeps coming up but wasn't the current location picked because it grows well in the climate of that region?
Is it true hemp was an important commodity, and you could pay your taxes with it? Do you think it could develop as a bartering standard as applications and education expands?
I heard a problem is that the helicopters won't be able to differentiate the hemp from psychoactive marijuana but if they zoom in they can tell the difference especially during flowering season right?
According to Wikipedia:HERE
"It is one of the fastest growing plants and was one of the first plants to be spun into usable fiber 10,000 years ago. It can be refined into a variety of commercial items including paper, textiles, clothing, biodegradable plastics, paint, insulation, biofuel, food, and animal feed"
Wow - Fastest growing!? It is also considered a low-maintenance crop. Would you say the number of utilized hemp fiber applications is very low compared to the number of non-utilized hemp fiber applications?
Does hemp have the potential to lower the cost for a farmer to feed their animals if they grow their own patch? Would that help make meat more affordable for people? Maybe smaller ranches could raise meat on grasses and also hemp seeds. Leave the shells on for fiber and vitamins?
The majority of product containers are toxic right? So when they heat up especially, doesn't that leach directly into the products/us and also indirectly when it goes into the landfills? If hemp was grown all over the place would the cost to make environmentally safe products decrease ?
I'm interested to read more about its possible use in batteries and other elements or materials it can be mixed together with for purposes like furniture and exotic construction materials. Hemp Crete can be used for Self-Insulating / non-toxic / Sound Proof / Pest-Resistant / humidity friendly / CO2 Breathing / Ultra Durable / Won't Catch Fire With A Torch (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FeW6kuZgPY4
) BUILDING MATERIAL. That is just one example of one thing that Hemp can be mixed with (LIME).
The hemp core or Shiv has a high silica content which helps it bind to the lime. On the periodic table Silica has a melting point of 2577°F.
"Hemp is of first necessity to the wealth & protection of the country." - Thomas Jefferson
"We shall, by and by, want a world of hemp more for our own consumption." - John Adams
"Make the most of the Indian Hemp seed and sow it everywhere." - George Washington
Notice Thomas Jefferson said the word, "protection."
Was he talking about Protection from starvation and the protection in decentralized self-sufficient supply of materials, food, and medicine?
He also said the word, "wealth."
Maybe protection + materials + food + medicine = wealth
If everything relies on a centralized grid and distribution system, bridges, electricity, civil rest, and gas to get materials, medicine, and food to your city, is that way of life safe and protected?
