Paper is typically made out wood pulp. But it can also be made out of hemp fibers.
In fact, in a lot of ways, it makes much more sense to make paper out of hemp.
That’s because it’s significantly faster to grow a new crop of industrial hemp than it is a new forest of trees.
11. Protein Powder
Many people consider hemp seeds to be a “super food.” They’re full of fatty acids, tons of protein, loads of antioxidants, amino acids, and many other critical nutrients.
Because of this, hemp seeds are used in a wide range of foods and drinks, and many people eat them all on their own.
One popular hemp food product is hemp protein powder, which gives people a boost of plant-based protein that is greener and more sustainable than many other types of protein powder, which typically use dairy products.
Hemp fibers can be used to make reusable cloth diapers. Supposedly, hemp textiles can actually be more absorbent than cotton.
And in some ways, cloth diapers are more eco-friendly than disposable ones—at the very least, your baby’s hemp diapers won’t end up sitting in a landfill for years.
Unfortunately, studies have found that the amount of water it takes to wash reusable diapers more or less cancels out any other environmental benefits of going with cloth.
But if you’re a fan of cannabis, you can at least show your support by putting your kid in hemp cloth diapers.
