HOW TO UTILISE HEMP PLANT
The power of the hemp plant
Hemp is the strongest natural fibre in the world – a fact the industry can no longer overlook.
It’s why it was grown and cultivated for food, clothing and shelter for centuries, and why the early pilgrims sailed the Mayflower to the Americas ready to sow hemp seed when they arrived.
Growing 10ft or 12ft high, the stalk-like plants are cane-like and hollow – the perfect raw material for making fibres for clothing, rope, printing and packaging.
Fibre and shive
They’re used in the construction industry and building materials industry as natural fibre insulation, as well as structure forming wood core products for the sustainable building industry.
Although we don’t have the production facilities to refine the stalk and bi-products ourselves, we use third-party contractors in the UK who do it for us, so nothing is ever wasted.
We recently built a state-of-the-art production facility that manages our ‘seed to shelf’ products. It is here we make our unique range of food supplements and topicals, which use 100% Whole-hemp plant seed in every bottle.
