We want to be healthy and maintain the planet, but what typically trumps that desire is our greed (and sometimes need) for cheaper products.
Soon we might have the best of both worlds. As people are becoming more educated on cannabis, laws are starting to relax. This is huge, and it’s not just opening the doors for getting high.
A change in law will mean we can start using industrial hemp to replace ANYTHING made with plastic…and it’s cheap. Hemp grows fast and doesn’t require much work (not even pesticides).
Hempcrete is made by mixing together hemp hurds, lime and water. If you’re imagining a crumbly, weak material — think again.
Although it doesn’t bear the structural weight of a house (if you were to drop a block of hempcrete into a bucket of water, it would float), it provides well-insulated walls and foundations. The material is durable, easy to work with, and cheap. It’s nearly a third of the price of lumber, according to The Daily Good. To top it all off, hempcrete boasts a great resistance to mold, insects and fire. It naturally regulates temperature, so people with hemp homes rarely ever need to turn on heaters or air conditioners.
