Hempcrete is the super hero of building materials! 🦸 Repost @colorado_hemp_project ・・・ Germany has it together with the hemp construction This house will forever store 20 tonnes of CO2. This is a hemp limestone construction Working on some things that will mention here in the coming weeks You guys will be able to help be apart of something amazing! Can’t wait to share more! These structures are weather proof I like to call it. Can last through a fire, crazy storms, earthquakes, floods, all of it. It won’t crack a d break down like normal concrete buildings. Also it’s storing carbon which is going to become a big market, these carbon credits. So healthy housing storing carbon that’ll never break down….

But we’ll get there! #Repost @hempinddaily ・・・ More farmers jumped off the hemp bandwagon for a second consecutive year, causing a dramatic drop in acres dedicated to growing the crop in 2021.

As of late September, U.S. producers licensed an estimated 284,793 acres in 2021. Check out the FULL article at the link in their bio!
