hemp versus bamboo trend

Bamboo is a pretty awesome resource, but hemp was banned for small farmers in the USA until 2019… Before we get into it lets take a look at Google Trends Shall We?

Google Trends Says Hemp VS Bamboo is a No Brainer in 2019!

Hemp VS Bamboo 1-9 (You Be The Judge)

  1. Hemp is an easier way to create clothes because it doesn’t require chemicals to break material down.
  2. Since it doesn’t require chemicals to break down and reconstitute hemp is better on the environment.
  3. There are countless articles about the benefits of Hemp Oil but no information on Bamboo Oil Benefits.
  4. Hemp is better for construction because of hempcrete (unless you need to build a lookout tower).
  5. CBD is being tested in many medical practices, including to aid digestion and fight cancer.
  6. Hemp is easier to grow than bamboo because it takes up less space and grows in more diverse climates.
  7. It is common that people claim to use hemp to relieve pain, yet I’ve never heard this for bamboo.
  8. Since it’s easy to grow in the USA hemp stands to make farmers more money than most other products.
  9. If you compare the value of the annual yield between hemp versus bamboo I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised how profitable hemp can be if you know what you’re doing.

Should I Buy Hemp or Bamboo Clothes?

Take a wild guess…

Which plant do you think is easier to grow?

I’ll give you a hint: One is a weed!

If you take a look at the Google Trends graph above you can note the Hemp just popped above Bamboo in 2019! 🙂

Don’t be bamboozled! The vast majority of bamboo clothing is grown sustainably but is not organic. Chemicals are added in the manufacturing process as bamboo is broken into bits and reconstructed. Unless you’re wearing long fiber bamboo clothing, anyone who says that your bamboo is “green” is taking you for a ride. Bamboo production releases harsh chemicals into our atmosphere.

Long Fiber Bamboo
Bamboo companies have already been formally charged with making false claims regarding their “environmentally friendly” processes. Bamboo companies have even claimed that bamboo, like hemp, is naturally anti-microbial. This is true, but
due to the noxious production process, who wants it?!

Building Materials (Bamboo is used in Construction)

Bamboo is used for lots of construction purposes. It definitely has it’s advantages, but if you ask me Hempcrete has it beat.

Bamboo as a building material has high compressive strength and low weight has been one of the most used building material as support for concrete, especially in those locations where it is found in abundance. Bamboo as a building material is used for the construction of scaffolding, bridges and structures, houses.

Medicine (Bamboo is Medicine & Food in China)

Yes, bamboo does have it’s medicinal benefits, but do they compare to hemp? I don’t think so.

In traditional Chinese medicine, bamboo shoots are used to ease labor and the expulsion of the placenta by inducing uterine contractions. … Bamboo shoot decoction taken along with honey is used to treat respiratory disorders. However, to most people bamboo shoots are best known as food.

Hemp-Tastic Resourcefulness

Hemp has more medical hype, more construction potentiality, more potential to aid USA farmers and hemp can even potentially assist people with mental imbalances, including anxiety, seizures, and depression. Hemp is made more sustainably and is easier to grow.

Thomas Jefferson Smokes Hemp
Yes, the Founding Fathers do Support Hemp!

“Hemp is the ultimate cash crop” and produces “more fiber, food and oil than any other plant on the planet.”

Belize Hemp Founder – William Conde

Humankind has pioneered the use of hemp and marijuana for thousands of years, and it’s finally being embraced in the United States again like it rightfully deserves.

“Some of my finest hours have been spent on my back veranda, smoking hemp and observing as far as my eye can see.”

Thomas Jefferson – DU Hemp Talks
Hemp Stories
Not only does hemp stand to make farmers and innovators wealthy but it’s awakening USA to the Power of Nature!

Although America is finally getting back to hemp, countries like France, Ukraine and Australia are already ahead of the game. It would seem that much of the scientific research available today dates as far back as the early 1900’s.

Old Hemp News

A 1975 article in The Midlands Naturalist, called “Feral Hemp in Southern Illinois,” a Notre Dame University publication talks about the wild hemp fields that annual efforts from law enforcement eradication teams cannot wipe out, and states…

Hemp Stats – 1 acre of hemp farm produces:

hemp crops
Are you ready for the Hemp Revolution?
  • 8,000 pounds of hemp seed.
  • 8,000 pounds of cold-pressed hemp seed yields over 300 gallons of hemp seed oil, plus a byproduct of 6,000 pounds of high protein hemp flour.
  • Seed oils are both a food and a biodiesel fuel.
  • Hemp seeds produce way more seed oil than it’s common competitor crops such as soybeans, sunflower seeds, rape seed or canola seeds.
  • Hemp seed produces an average of three times more oil per acre than comparable seed oil crops, at over 300 gallons per acre, with a byproduct of 3 tons of food per acre.
  • Hemp seed oil is appears to be more nutritious and beneficial to our health than any other seed oil crop.
  • In addition to the food and oil produced, there are several other byproducts and benefits to the cultivation of hemp.
  • Typically a farmer receives6-10 tons of bast fiber, per acre. Hemp bast fiber makes canvas, rope, lace, linen, and ultra-thin specialty papers like cigarette and bible papers.
  • Twenty-five tons of hemp hurd fiber is typically produced in one acre. Hemp hurd fiber is commonly used to make all grades of paper, composite building materials, animal bedding and is used as a material for the absorption of liquids and oils.
  • The deep tap root draws up sub-soil nutrients.
  • Leaves fall from the plant to the ground, and as they break down they return these nutrients to the top soil for the next crop rotation.

The article was found on Vote Hemp.

As long as marijuana is forbidden, industrial hemp costs will be economically prohibitive due to the artificial regulatory burdens imposed by the prohibition of marijuana. When marijuana and hemp are legally regulated, industrial hemp will return to its rightful place in our agricultural economy.

Fibre hemp and marihuana: assessing the differences between distinct varieties – Tom Decorte

Tom suggests that hemp may be the plant that started humans down the road toward civilization with the invention of agriculture. Archaeologists agree that cannabis was one of the first crops that human beings purposely cultivated over 6,000 years ago, and perhaps longer than 12,000+ years ago.

It’s time to restore industrial hemp to its rightful place in agriculture!

Hemp Peace
Our children deserve to live in peace and harmony!

Return much control to our farmers, and move away from dependence on the multinational corporations that dominate our political process and destroy our environment. These capital-intensive, non-sustainable, and environmentally destructive industries have usurped our economic resources, clear-cut huge tracts of the world’s forests, given us massive oil spills, wars, toxic waste, massive worldwide pollution, global warming and the destruction of entire ecosystems.

Prohibiting the cultivation of this ancient plant, the most productive source of fiber, oil and protein on our planet, is evil.

– Tom Decorte
Save the Children – Save the World – Save Yourself!

DU Hemp agrees that prohibiting the cultivation of useful and valuable ancient plants that are high in fiber, oil and protein is unsustainable and reckless. Now thanks to recent legislation in the USA farmers can be empowered to produce this valuable super-sustainable resource and share a legacy of hemp abundance with our children!

Hemp Love fortune Economy Business
This could help our children and future generations evade the worldwide ecological crisis, the potential demise of Earth’s biological heritage and give America an honest chance to thrive economically again!
