5 Other Uses for Hemp You May Not Know About

“You may not be able to make an entire house of hemp, but you can get close with something called hempcrete. The substance is made when you mix hemp’s pulpy wood-like center with a lime-based binder. The result is a building material that weights approximately 1/8th as much as concrete and about 1/20th the strength. When used as structural support, hempcrete can increase the load strength of a study wall by a factor of three to four times. Hempcrete is mold-resistant, carbon-negative, and works as an insulator.”
