Hemp Fact of the Day :

Hemp_stem_fibreThe bark of the hemp stalk contains bast fibers, which are among the Earth’s longest natural soft fibers and are also rich in cellulose. The cellulose and hemi-cellulose in its inner woody core are called hurds.

Hemp stalk is not psychoactive.

Hemp fiber is longer, stronger, more absorbent and more isolative than cotton fiber.

One thought on “Hemp Fact of the Day :

  1. Thanks for the summary about hurd. The time is nearing for true growth of the hemp industry in the production of hemp fiber, hurd (core), dust, and grain for the food (grain and oil), building materials (hempcrete, insulation, fiberboard, etc.) animal bedding (equine/horse, guinea pig, poultry, etc.), clothing, bioplastics, etc. industries.

    More information about hemp for grain and fiber, especially in the USA, can be found on the Hemp Industries Association website at (http://thehia.org), Nutiva website (http://nutiva.com), Manitoba Harvest website (http://manitobaharvest.com), Vote Hemp website (http://votehemp.com) or American Hemp website (http://americanhempinc.com).
