Industrial Hemp

Picture_Icon_IndustrialHempHemp (Cannabis Sativa L.) Needs:


The excitement and potentials of industrial hemp has attracted many entrepreneurs, business people, inventors and others. Unfortunately, because so few have experience with policy, law, farming, and other areas, there is a lack of leadership in any of the associations. The people who have this experience have retracted into the shadows to focus on their own projects and need to be brought together as a focused team. Some of the people who are running the existing hemp and Cannabis associations have a very specific agenda and do not encompass the views of the whole.

Shared and Coordinated Research Among the States

The intent of the 2012 Colorado Industrial Hemp Remediation Research Program was, and still is, to develop a cooperative scientific community of shared research among the states. Currently, many states are doing their own research and much of the information is being duplicated or repeating all ready known techniques. This is a loss of efficiency and time.

Less Regulations, Not More.

Farming Industrial Hemp and Growing Medical Cannabis have a lot in common. A critical area to address is the communication among the community to address any concerns. Issues such as pollen travel, water and energy use, education and others can be addressed without government intervention.

Infrastructure, Infrastructure, Infrastructure!

“Imagine the telephone, car and Internet all being invented at once.”

Yes it is complicated, but there are many aspects which overlap and if we had the opportunity to rebuild it all from scratch it would look a lot different today.

Hemp is in the same position, we had it and it was taken away. Today there is a huge opportunity to build an integrated supply and processing chain for the emergent growth of hemp in America. This is an extremely complex phased approach to an efficient and environmentally sound integration into what already exists today.

Mr. Hemp has developed a comprehensive approach to this complex relationship with hemp. Policy, business, community and individuals all need to thrive as we phase hemp into our lifestyles and the guiding principal as our gauge is the quality of our environment.

The following illustration is of the outline which Mr Hemp has developed to address the ideal growth of infrastructure in the redevelopment of American hemp.
