    2. “In Hemp Bound, bestselling author Doug Fine embarks on a humorous yet rigorous journey to meet the men and women who are testing, researching, and pioneering hemp’s applications for the twenty-first century. From Denver, where Fine hitches a ride in a hemp-powered limo; to Asheville, North Carolina, where carbon-negative hempcrete-insulated houses are sparking a mini housing boom; to Manitoba where he raps his knuckles on the hood of a hemp tractor; and finally to the fields of east Colorado, where practical farmers are looking toward hemp to restore their agricultural economy—Fine learns how eminently possible it is for this long misunderstood plant to help us end dependence on fossil fuels, heal farm soils damaged after a century of growing monocultures, and bring even more taxable revenue into the economy than its smokable relative.” ~ Chelsea Green Publishing

    6. What is Hemp History Week? The 5th Annual Hemp History Week: June 2-8, 2014 It’s Time to Grow Every day, more and more Americans discover the benefits of hemp. This ever-expanding market includes healthy food and body care products, as well as eco-friendly textiles, clothing, auto parts, and building materials. But despite hemp’s growing popularity, an outdated and misguided Federal policy – created in the 1930s – currently prevents U.S. farmers from growing this nutritious, versatile, and eco-friendly crop. It is time for Federal policy on industrial hemp to reflect today’s reality and ensure a better tomorrow for America’s families and farmers, the economy and our planet.

    Guest #1: Brian Owens, Brew Master, O’Fallon Brewery hemphoprye

    We are a growing Micro Brewery in the St.Louis, MO area focused on making a wide variety of craft beer including one of our flagships…Hemp Hop & Rye: an amber ale with toasted hemp seeds. Here is a bit of the story from the O’Fallon site that tells of this great American brewed hemp beer! Tony (Caradonna) came into the brewery one day and mentioned hemp beer. It was something that he had been thinking about for a while, I think. He used to distribute a hemp beer back in the ’90′s and he sold quite a bit of it. I think that is what sparked his interest. I was a bit skeptical at first because the first thing that came to my mind, like many people, was marijuana. And then I did a little research. I quickly realized that Tony might really be on to something here. I loved the idea of getting behind the hemp movement and the more I learned the more excited I got, but I still didn’t know at the time how hemp could contribute to the flavor in beer, so we started playing around. I ordered in a few different varieties of hemp – toasted hemp seeds, salted hemp seeds and hemp seed cake. We quickly decided on the unsalted toasted hemp seeds for their great nutty flavor.

    Guest #2 : Ben Broz, Legislative Liaison of Vote Hemp

    congressman-thomas-massie-and-ben-drozVote Hemp is a national, single-issue, non-profit advocacy group founded in 2000 by members of the hemp industry to remove barriers to industrial hemp farming in the U.S. through education, legislation and advocacy. We work to build grassroots support for hemp through voter education, registration and mobilization, as well as defend against any new laws, regulations or policies that would prohibit or restrict hemp trade. Industrial hemp is the non-psychoactive, low-THC, oilseed and fiber varieties of the Cannabis sativa plant. Hemp has absolutely no use as a recreational drug.

    6. Why Does Hemp Have a Bad Rap? | Fox News Insider http://bit.ly/1fMWWC7 The graphic on this story is just plain wrong. Hemp and marijuana don’t come from the same plant, they come from different varieties of the same species, Cannabis. Marijuana is made from the flowers, usually seedless, and the upper leaves of high THC varieties of Cannabis. Hemp is made from the fiber and seed of low THC oilseed and fiber varieties of Cannabis. Marijuana and hemp are different because of their genetic makeup.Learn more at http://votehemp.com/different and http://votehemp.com/faqs#difference

    American Hemp LLC seeks to grow the industrial hemp industry and, since barriers have not yet dissolved in NC or the US, are establishing a global supply chain that involves other countries.  American Hemp offers raw hemp material that is separated and converted into long hemp bast fibers, short fibers, hurd (core), and dust (fine) that are ready to be purchased by manufacturers. Hemp fine is the dust particles that arise from the separation of the fiber from the hurd. This fine is available for purchase as an alternative, clean burning energy. Imagine using products and materials that are created through the annual cultivation of industrial hemp. A brief example of this crop’s usefulness is its ability to create a residential and commercial construction material called hempcrete. This healthy home material has better insulation properties, is mold resistant, looks like stucco, and overall, outperforms current construction materials. We envision an increase in manufacturers that use hemp, the creation of a new commodity trade, and economic humanitarian missions. Call or email us today if you need bast fibre for textiles or composites, core (hurd) for animal bedding (equine i.e. horse, poultry, guinea pig, rabbit, etc.) or building materials (hempcrete, fiberboard, insulation), or fine as burnable logs. American Hemp LLC is currently licensed as a North Carolina limited liability industrial hemp processing company aimed at growing the industry internationally and helping pass US legislation on industrial hemp to allow farmers to cultivate it. American Hemp sees the potential economy the United States has once again as a hemp producing nation, due to its rich farmland. Upon the passing of legislation, American farmers will have a new unsubsidized, profitable crop to grow. Businesses searching for cost-efficient solutions will have the material to move forward. Because of the plethora of industries hemp can accommodate, there will be a surge of new jobs and technologies created by the utilization of this crop, and the revitalization of the US and global economy. American Hemp is dedicated to realizing the vision of a society that readily uses natural, efficient crops to reinvigorate rural communities and localize manufacturing once more. Contact us today if you want to know more about what it takes to: Grow hemp, Plan a manufacturing operation, Educate a group of students, Market natural fibres, Trade internationally

    Hemp For Humanity and the Hemp Hut Twitter: @HempForHumanity Facebook

    I’m dedicated to helping maximize hemp’s potential to heal our ecosystems and contribute to building a green economy. The first steps toward this goal have involved educating myself and gaining first hand experiences, so that I can further my own understanding and in turn, educate others. My goal is to help build coalitions to stimulate the national hempversation and demonstrate the broad grassroots public support that exists for progressive policies related to reintroducing hemp to the USA with an eye towards stimulating the economies of Native Reservations and rural America.
