It gives back to the land whilst providing the essential nutrients we need to enhance our health and wellbeing.
Our hemp grows where the air is clean, the sky is blue and the soil is rich; Australia. Our soil provides the most nourishing environment needed to grow this wondrous plant, it even grows in both the summer and winter months. Hemp is not climate-sensitive and can be grown with or without irrigation depending on location, making it extremely versatile. So far, hemp has been grown in every state and territory in Australia, highlighting how adaptable it is to our country's varying climates.
No part goes to waste
Hemp is not only an incredibly sustainable food source, which we believe will be fundamental in feeding the world's future population. It can also be used to make about 25,000 other products, such as skincare, medicine, rope, clothing, building materials, biofuel and plastic composites, ensuring a use for every part of the plant.
Captures more CO2 than trees
Hemp has been scientifically proven to absorb more CO2 per hectare than any forest or commercial crop, allowing it to purify the air we breathe. In addition, the CO2 is permanently bonded within the fibre so it cannot escape. We think that's pretty cool.
Nourishes our soil
Hemp plants have long taproots that clean the soil and hemp prevent erosion at the same time! Hemp has been known to eliminate harmful man-made toxins from the soil and was famously used after a nuclear disaster at Chernobyl.
The decomposing leaf matter that falls from the plant as it matures is also packed with nutrients that are returned to the soil, this can lead to richer yields in the following year.
Generates future advantages
Hemp enjoys being sown close together, which allows our Aussie farmers to achieve greater yields.
Hemp grows quickly and creates a canopy, which shields the soil from the sun and inhibits the growth of weeds. This drastically reduces the use of pesticides compared to other crops. Now that's future proofing our planet!
