Left Hand Hemp is available for hire to install hempcrete into the walls of your project, be it a house, garage, shed, or chicken coop! With four years of experience with hempcrete construction, we are an internationally recognized name in the industry and the only one you’ll need. Hempcrete is a viable option for any homeowner or builder to use and is exceptionally environmentally friendly. This carbon negative material will work to control humidity and pull carbon dioxide from the air as it cures, naturally! Hempcrete is non-toxic, fire-resistant, mold and pest proof. It has been used extensively in countries around the world like England, France, Ukraine and Germany. There are also many examples of hempcrete homes in the U.S. in all different climates. We will be doing limited workshops moving forward, so if you are wanting to host a workshop, call us today!


Kelly Thornton, Founder of Left Hand Hemp, has a BA in History, Education, with a minor in German and a Master’s Degree in Hydrogeology. His passion for the planet is what led him to seek an advanced degree in earth sciences. His knowledge of home construction coupled with a desire to build with sustainable materials put him on the path towards green building. He attended multiple straw bale workshops and in 2014, when his work with straw bale construction met with his experiences in the Colorado cannabis industry he discovered that hempcrete was the ultimate green building material. In 2016, he formed Left Hand Hemp which began as a consulting company focused on educating the public on hempcrete construction by way of educational seminars. He wishes to see the hemp industry become the backbone of a new global economy.
