Hemp production for industrial purposes continues to grow worldwide, and is currently being used for many applications including house insulation, paper making, animal bedding, fabric, rope making and also as a biofuel. This book brings together international experts to examine all aspects of industrial hemp production, including the origins of hemp production, as well as the botany and anatomy, genetics and breeding, quality assessment, regulations, and the agricultural and industrial economics of hemp production.

A History of the Hemp Industry in Kentucky

It is hard to believe that at one time burley tobacco was not the chief cash crop in Kentucky. Yet for more than half a century hemp dominated the state's agricultural production. James Hopkins surveys the hemp industry in Kentucky from its beginning through its complete demise at the end of World War II, describing the processes of seeding and harvesting the plant, and marketing manufactured goods made of the fiber. With debate presently raging over the legalization of industrial hemp, it is essential that an accurate portrait of this controversial resource be available. Although originally published in 1951, Hopkins's work remains remarkably current as hemp manufacturing today is little changed from the practices the author describes. This edition includes an updated bibliography of recent publications concerning the scientific, economic, and political facets of industrial hemp.

Hemp fiber is amenable to use in a wide range of products incl. carpeting, home furnishings, construction materials, auto parts, textiles, and paper. Hemp seed, an oilseed, likewise has many uses, incl. industrial oils, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and food. In June 2005, legislation that would open the way for commercial cultivation of industrial hemp in the U.S. was introduced at the federal level for the first time. Such a change would mean that state law would determine whether producers could grow and process industrial hemp within state borders, under state regulations. Contents of this report: (1) Intro. and history; (2) Foreign Hemp Production and U.S. Consumption; (3) Review and Analysis of Economic Studies. This is a print on demand pub.

Hemp for Victory

A Global Warming Solution

"In a report by the world's top environmental scientists, the only thing listed that mankind can do to have an impact on changing weather patterns is to reduce the excess CO2 levels from the air. Hemp for Victory: A Global Warming Solution is a key for reducing the effects of global warming using hemp. Why hemp? In this book you'll learn: hemp is a biomass champion, breathing in more carbon dioxide (the most abundant greenhouse gas) than any other plant. This carbon dioxide is turned into wood and fiber by photosynthesis. Hemp wood takes the pressure off our forests by making paper and building materials like pressboard. Hemp is the best plant at consuming the greenhouse gas CO2, a step the world leading scientists say is critical to at least slowing down the dramatic effects of global warming. Remove the cause, CO2 pollution, and the effect, global warming, can be reduced, if not healed. Hemp can do all the jobs fossil fuels do now. When used as a biofuel, hemp replaces toxic energy (i.e. fossil fuels, nuclear power) with clean sustainable energy. Hemp biofuel can be processed to run any engine, heat or cool any building, run any factory, and eliminate the greenhouse gases and pollution that come from modern energy sources. The Museum has thousands of hemp exhibits both on line and in the private wing, many included in this book. The Museum's founder and curator, Richard M. Davis, wrote this dynamic piece of literature that gives chapter and verse of how to best re-hemp the planet. This book is based on the museum's extensive research on hemp and the environment. The museum is also developing a Hemp for Victory plan to successfully use hemp to help solve the survival problem of global warming by coordinating famers with growing and market information. A 20% recreational hemp tax plan is in development to finance the program and help deal with the current impact of global warming, i.e. Hurricane Katrina."--Back cover.

The stat sheet on hemp sounds almost too good to be true: its fibers are among the planet’s strongest, its seed oil the most nutritious, and its potential as an energy source vast and untapped. Its one downside? For nearly a century, it’s been illegal to grow industrial cannabis in the United States–even though Betsy Ross wove the nation’s first flag out of hemp fabric, Thomas Jefferson composed the Declaration of Independence on it, and colonists could pay their taxes with it. But as the prohibition on hemp’s psychoactive cousin winds down, one of humanity’s longest-utilized plants is about to be reincorporated into the American economy. Get ready for the newest billion-dollar industry. In Hemp Bound:Dispatches from the Front Lines of the Next Agricultural Revolution, bestselling author Doug Fine embarks on a humorous yet rigorous journey to meet the men and women who are testing, researching, and pioneering hemp’s applications for the twenty-first century. From Denver, where Fine hitches a ride in a hemp-powered limo; to Asheville, North Carolina, where carbon-negative hempcrete-insulated houses are sparking a mini housing boom; to Manitoba where he raps his knuckles on the hood of a hemp tractor; and finally to the fields of east Colorado, where practical farmers are looking toward hemp to restore their agricultural economy—Fine learns how eminently possible it is for this misunderstood plant to help us end dependence on fossil fuels, heal farm soils damaged after a century of growing monocultures, and bring even more taxable revenue into the economy than its smokable relative. Fine’s journey will not only leave you wondering why we ever stopped cultivating this miracle crop, it will fire you up to sow a field of it for yourself, for the nation’s economy, and for the planet.

In 1916, the USDA published Bulletin No. 404, a report on using hemp hurds as a paper-making material. The bulletin proclaims that: “Without a doubt, hemp will continue to be one of the staple agricultural crops of the United States.” The report also warns that: “Our forests are being cut three times faster than they grow.” It finds that (over a 20-year period) 10,000 acres of hemp can produce the same amount of paper as 40,500 acres of trees. The test results are so favorable that USDA Bulletin #404 is printed on paper made from hemp! "The Gospel of Hemp" explains why a crop that was hailed as a "one of the staple agricultural crops of The United States" in a U.S. government report was deceptivley made essentially illegal in 1937. The time has come for America and the world to correct this deception and injustice for the future of our planet.

Hemp has been used for decades for clothing, rope, and plastics, but it also has serious food value. As hemp becomes more accessible, and public awareness of its health benefits grows, demand for the inexpensive plant in its variety of culinary forms—as flour, oil, and seeds—is expected to increase. At the forefront of this trend is Denis Cicero, owner of one of New York's trendiest restaurants. Hemp, which tastes like a cross between a hazelnut and a walnut, is incorporated into every recipe in this cookbook. Hemp waffles, a fusilli salad made with hemp seed oil, and even a scrumptious chocolate banana dessert, all based on the restaurant's menu, are only a few of the innovative, nutritious, and socially responsible recipes featured. Also included is a list of sources where readers can buy hemp products for cooking.
