Cars made of hemp

Have you heard about the new, or rather, very old, building material hemp? Yes, it’s the cousin of the very famous cannabis, it has less than 1% thc, some medicinal properties, grows to be more than 10 foot tall, and can be used to make more than just clothes.

Innovative construction mixes it with lime, a natural mineral from the earth as well, and they allow it to harden over time. It hardens by removing Co2 from the air, so it even has a negative carbon foot print!

Building constructors are making beautiful homes today, but hemp can be more than a house. Henry Ford made his first car out of hemp, that ran on hemp oil and was 10 times stronger than steel! But of course Big Oil and Big Steel had to steamroll that idea by defunding it, ergo our more destructible machines, though they were much stronger when they first came out than the plastic we drive around today.

I don’t know about you but I would LOVE to live in a house made out of hemp that can withstand the destruction of the weather and that also comes with cleansed air!

My love for humanity, and for the planet, has set me on a path of healing through love, compassion, and understanding. I'm originally from a big city in the big state of Texas, making my personality quite large. I then landed in a small town that's out-of-puzzles gorgeous where people still wave at each other when coming across each other in the street. This transition has helped my development and tried relationships with distance and sacrifice. I have 2 beautiful boys, Silas and Declan, and their loving father, Curtis, who make my world go round. My political views all stem from wanting to protect this beauty in all its forms.
