Learn about Hemp
Why is Hemp so useful?
Hemp can be grown as a renewable source for raw materials that can be incorporated into thousands of products. As it grows, hemp breathes in CO2, detoxifies the soil, and prevents soil erosion. What's left after harvest breaks down into the soil, providing valuable nutrients.
Hemp is used to make a variety of commercial and industrial products, including rope, textiles, clothing, shoes, food, paper, bioplastics, insulation, and biofuel.

Awareness and Education
Hemplanet understands the importance of educating people about the misconceptions and stigmatisation surrounding the cannabis plant.
We attend events, festivals, fairs and markets where we display raw hemp materials and a selection of hemp-based products in order to illustrate the amazing variety of applications that can be made from just the one plant.
People get the chance to touch hempcrete bricks and hemp fabric, smell and taste roasted hemp seeds and hempseed milk as well as feel hemp paper and hemp soap.
Hemplanet also produces short educational films. As well as providing information and facts, the films celebrate the wonderful versatility that the hemp plant can offer.
