In this fast-paced world, there is hardly time to reflect on our relationships. Relationships with our family, our friends, our co-workers, or the consumable products we use to get through each day. Most people realize they need to make time to connect with their family, friends, and make efforts to maintain healthy working relationships with their co-workers, and they do. But what about our relationship with the things we purchase to maintain our health and lifestyle (i.e. food, clothing, shelter, transportation, and all of the materials used to produce or maintain those items)? Are we even conscious of the effect it has on us personally, those close to us, or even on those we’ve never met? Does it affect the environment? You bet it does, and that is where Industrial Hemp comes in.
A Few Hemp Facts
Consider this…An acre of hemp produces more paper than an acre of trees. Paper made from hemp lasts for centuries, compared to 25-80 years for paper made from wood pulp. The Sativa Hemp plant, which is 100% sustainable, can make all the same products that are produced by trees and make them better and stronger. Hemp can be grown in virtually any climate or soil condition, and grows extremely fast, yielding up to 4 crops a year. Think of all the trees that could be saved. Do you think this would make a difference to our environment, and ultimately us personally?
Then consider this VERY IMPORTANT fact…paper is just one of the possible 30,000+ products that can be made from hemp. Here is a few more hemp uses...Henry Ford made a hemp car and ran it with hemp fuel. There are approximately 300 hemp houses being built in France every year. And the hemp food industry is growing by leaps and bounds. Another fact is…Hemp can be grown organically. Only eight, out of about one hundred known pests, cause problems, and hemp is most often grown without herbicides, fungicides, or pesticides. Hemp is also a natural weed suppressor due to fast growth of the canopy. Wouldn’t that make a difference to the environment – to us? What a great benefit industrial hemp farming could provide!
Hemp is considered one of the most valuable and versatile crops in the world and we can believe that based on the two facts just mentioned. Also, to be clear, we are talking about industrial hemp, not marijuana. There is a difference, not just in THC content but also fiber strength.
There is also a growing awareness of the health benefits of hemp. It is considered to be one of the world's most perfect foods. An impressive plant that has become what many to believe the next revolution in health foods, based on its rather staggering nutritional profile.
Could hemp have an impact on the economy? Well, the Hemp Industries Association report final estimates of $419 Million in U.S. retail hemp sales for 2010. And while it is banned from being farmed in the U.S. we are the number one importers. So, if we are talking about a possible billion dollar crop, what could that mean for you?
For us, all of the above means VERSATIVA.
