These 6 Industries Don’t Want Hemp Legalized

If the LEGOs made of hemp seemed too childish to get excited about, get ready for a more mature use of hemp. Indeed, the building blocks of our own homes may soon be made of hemp rather than from lumber or other building materials. Called hempcrete, these bricks of hemp form the structures of the homes in one Santa Barbara community.  They’re made from the woody inner core of the hemp plant, then mixed with a lime-based binder.

The result benefits the homeowner because the material is energy-efficient, non-toxic and resistant to mold, insects and fire. Not to mention, it is more sustainable than lumber.

Ending the prohibition on hemp will open up a lot of opportunities to experiment with and perfect utilizing this great resource. Hempcrete has proven itself in Europe where it’s legal. There they have used it as a building material for decades. France has used hempcrete in their office buildings, the UK has demonstrated its strength in a department store construction.

Prince Charles even admires its value as a building material for his own home.

It’s no doubt that hempcrete will make up the infrastructure of many of our cities and the walls of our homes. Of course these industries don’t want hemp legalized.

Loosening restrictions on industrial hemp farming will press the lumber to prove itself up against this innovative material.
