The miracle plant

Posted by Maria Cristina Chiulli on

One that has over 25,000 uses from rope, to clothes, to concrete, to medicine. A plant that grew quick and tall, that dug its roots deep into the dirt and sequestered tons of carbon back into the soil while sucking polluting metals back out of it.

That's hemp, a non-psychoactive strain of the cannabis plant,

 one of the fastest growing plants on the planet, is able to sequester 15 tonnes of carbon dioxide into the soil per hectare, and crowds out weeds to such an extent that very little herbicide is needed to grow it successfully. When implemented in a crop rotation, hemp can be a boon to farmers, 

yields of soybean and wheat increased in the next year while weed pressure dwindled: hemp's impact on soil is minimal, while sequestering a massive amount of carbon in a very short period of time. 

Its seeds are nutrient dense and can be eaten raw or made into milk or oils. Its stalks can be used to make fiber that's stronger, more absorbent, more durable, and better insulating than cotton, and if clothing isn't what you need then you can make hemp paper, or even hemp concrete. 

We offer a range of hemp products, from apparel and accessories to 3D printer filaments and hemp based food, all made with love in Italy from organic hemp. 

Say Yes to Life, Earth Thanks! 🌿
