About

Left Hand Hemp Company works to educate those interested in learning about the sustainable building material called hempcrete. This is a great opportunity for any homeowner interested in a tiny home, shed or garage to build with environmentally friendly materials. This carbon negative material will not “off-gas”, will work to control humidity and pull carbon from the air, naturally! This non-toxic, fire-resistant, mold and pest proof material is a huge hit in countries around the world like England, France, UkraineĀ and Germany. There are also many examples of hempcrete homes in the U.S. in all different climates.

Kelly Thornton founder of Left Hand Hemp begun his journey in sustainable construction with strawbale and soon learned about hempcrete’s superior characteristics. With an enthusiastic approach to teaching students about hemp construction, the hempcrete workshops are both educational and fun!

Alli Cloyd, hemp-event coordinator, loves the sustainable solutions the industrial hemp plant brings. A lover of the Earth and believer that hemp will save the planet, Alli wants to see the natural building material of hempcrete take over the building industry. Alli and hemp’s journey began with the Rocky Mountain Hemp Association, she immersed herself in the industry and soaked up all the knowledge and history she could. She hopes to drastically improve the world we live in today through hemp farming and hemp construction.

  3. Can it be used as insulation? What is the R-Value? For example fiberglass is R-3 per inch of depth. Thank you for your time.
