Cannabis Sativa L (Hemp), The Possibilities are endless

 

 

 

Building Materials;

Hemp concrete, fibreboards stronger than plywood and re-usable shuttering for concrete mouldings are just some of the applications traditionally used in the building trade.

In the South of France there is a bridge c.500AD. made from a material traditionally known as Isochanvre described as the process of maneralization of sap and resin.

Terry Waite CBE. World-renowned humanitarian and author had a guest house built using hemp for the walls, floor and ceilings, the hemp was delivered in the form of chippings or shavings, in paper sacks from a French firm named;

Chevonette Habitat, whose owner Mme. France Perier, claimed that the Pyramids were built using the hemp, lime and water recipe she had discovered. This hemp, lime, water mix was cast into panels, it's as flxible as cement but 6 times lighter, making it easier to work with. It's also stronger, concrete structures strat to detiorate immediately, whereas Hempcrete continues to gain strength because lime absorbs carbon dioxide from the atmosphere as it sets. After construction the hempcrete continues to absorb carbon and continues to get stronger, acting as a very much needed carbon sink.

 

A method very similar to this can also applied to produce 'Hemp Metal'. The German automobile manufacturer Mercedes were testing the material for car panels. Whereas BMW have been using this method for their dashboards for years.

 

Henry Ford is known to have used hemp, along with pine fibres, straw and ramie for his famous Model T built to run on hemp biomass fuel. When exhibited the car was powered by a 60 horse power Ford V-8 engine,

the panels could withstand a blow 10 time heavier than a similar car

with steel panels before denting, meaning it was safer.

It was also much lighter than a steel car so more fuel efficient.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Henry Ford with his Model T built to run on Hemp biomass and incorporating 10% hemp as one the components in the body panels, and then attacking the panel with a sledge hammer that bounced off the surface without so much as a dent.

 

Lamp and Lubricating oils.

Hemp was cleaner burning than Flax oil.

 

Soap.

Available today but generally only from specialist suppliers and looked upon as more of a gimmick than a serious product, which is a great pity as it makes luxurious soap. It is becoming more widespread and is likely to continue to do so as a sideline from one of the many newly formed modern hemp industries.

 

Foodstuff.

The seed itself can be made into porridge, flour, breads or indeed anything that is flour based. The oil was traditionally used as a salad dressing, to make margarine and food supplements, i.e. Omega oil. The leaves are often used as a delicious salad vegetable or to make a soothing infusion. The seed was also pressed into cakes to make animal fodder.

 

Medicine.

Taken either by eating, drinking an infusion, applying a topical oil or ointment and yes... even smoking pure cannabis alleviates the symptoms of many ailments. The application would depend on the ailment and individuals preferences.

Cannabis was for centuries the 2nd most Folk Medicine in the world against a huge array of ailments, further to this with the attitude towards Medical Cannabis on the change we are likely to see an upsurge of it's use for many more.

Below is a list of ailments that have either traditionally been treated with cannabis and some modern conditions that have shown great promise and often complete from it's use;

 

AIDS, Alzheimers, Arthritis, Asthma, Cancers including the shrinking of tumours, Cystic Fibrosis, Dementia, Depression, Emphysema, Epilepsy, Glaucoma, Herpes, High Blood Pressure, Insomnia, Migraines and other headaches, Mulyiple Sclerosis, Muscular cramping i.e. Period pains, Nausea, Pain (including severe neuropathic pain and chemotherapy related pains, both of which I can personally vouch for it's efficacy), Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, Schizophrenia (despite the Reefer Madness style publicity the plant recieved a while back, in a balanced plant, not as is often grown for High Toxicology under the shadow of prohibition), Tourettes Syndrome and just a little one to add on the end to aid in the fight against drug and alcohol addiction.

 

There has been recently a huge upsurge in research worldwide and the followings will transport you to some of the research.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cannabis one of our most versatile and therefore valuable plant resources

A Medicine of the Past or a Cure for the Future

Cannabis Sativa L.

With over 25,000 known uses,

A short list of ailments, and conditions alleviated by the illegal use of an amazing plant.

Herpes;

High Blood Pressure;

Schizophrenia;

Despite reports over the years from ‘experts’ that Cannabis causes schizophrenia, it is now known that the Cannabinoid CBD (Cannabiderol) inhibits this disorder. Hybrid strains produced by criminal gangs to make more money on the black marke containing less and less CBD are widely thought to be the cause, proving once again that PROHIBITION is a harmful entity.

Tourette’s Syndrome;

Cannabis use reduces the compulsion to TICK or to behave/speak in inappropriate ways.

 

This list was prepared a number of years ago and has of course been added to with research worldwide. Research is continuing and eventually we will have a full understanding of this miracle plant.

Not only could Cannabis be used as a medicine for our species but also as a medicine for our entire planet.

Hemp grows without the need for pesticides and agrochemicals.

Fossil fuels are literally choking us to Death.

Hemp Biomass along with other types of sustainable energy production are imperative.

Textiles that are softer and more durable. Hemp cloth is fire retardant and mildew resistant.

Hemp Building materials don’t leach toxins into the earth either during or after production. Furthermore Hemp Bricks and Hemp concrete act as a carbon sink reducing carbon in the air.

Hemp seeds are more nutritious than Soya and easier to grow. Yet more important Hemp does not impede the bodies calcium intake unlike Soya, essential for growth in children.

Hemp paper can be recycled 7 times unlike most other paper which can only be recycled 3 times.

.

As a Folk Medicine Cannabis is unpopular mostly from the point of view of Multinational Pharmaceutical Corporations and their lobbeists.

Why is that you might ask;

the answer is simplicity itself, it is so easy to grow and would hit profits hard.

 

Intoxicant.

Both for Recreational Use and as a Religious Sacrement it's use has been widespread throughout history.

The fact that it has an intoxicating effect has been a useful tool for Prohibitions and Manufactures of Fossil Fuel products to keep this most renewable of resources from reaching it's full potential.
