|Jason Lauve is considered the innovator and leading light in Industrial Hemp development in the United States of America and in 2012 drafted the first successful hemp legislation in Colorado. Since then, Mr. Lauve has been instrumental in the momentum of North Carolina’s law and encouraged the cascade of bills across the country, not that they are all good ones. We still have a lot of work to do.
As the founder of Hemp Cleans LLC., he demonstrated that the plant has remediation properties for soil, water, and air and has since initiated the decorticator currently in N. Carolina, in addition to projects in Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Mexico, South Korea, Pennsylvania, Colorado, and other places around the world.
Using architecture, urban planning, environmental design, and computer skills, Jason has positively influenced how people thrive and live day to day on a local and international scale. He has worked on high profile scientific projects such as cellulosic ethanol visualization for National Research Energy Labs, designed additions, private residences, commercial buildings, and helped develop guidelines for future communities,
His farming experience started in 1977 in upstate NY, milking cows, dying wool, sapping trees for maple syrup and cooperating with nature. This has been the foundation of everything Mr. Lauve has accomplished. In addition, his toolset of skills includes 20 years of scientific animation experience, speaking, teaching, and production.
Today, he travels the world speaking to farmers and communities about Cannabis for health and industrial uses and is currently in Guatemala.
