    We are Hemp Dog Café in Richmond, VA and we are on an important mission! We plan to help America get healthy with hemp, “the perfect food” all while helping our economy “grow”….

    HEMP DOG CAFÉ™ is an innovative restaurant model offering a healthy, nutritious hemp based menu in a café and mobile café setting. We launched the first Hemp Dog™ Cart at the Richmond Bacon Festival and received national news coverage! Our mission is to introduce, or should I say “re-introduce” healthy hemp food to the American diet through our delicious hemp food creations. Chef Sean and Chef Sergio are busy creating lots of hempy recipes.

    WHAT IS A HEMP DOGLove Hot Dogs? Then you will love the Hemp Dog™, the healthiest hot dog on the planet! What is a Hemp Dog™ you ask? It is the world’s first Gluten Free Hot Dog with No Fillers or Artificial Colors served on a freshly baked green, nutty Hemp Bun served with our signature Hemp Dog Gourmet Toppings. Each Hemp Dog™ will have a signature leaf burned into the bun for the full hemp experience! Soon, everyone will want a Hemp Dog!

    Why Hemp? Hemp is the most nutritious food source on the planet! Hempseeds contain all the essential fatty acids (EFAs or Omegas) Omega 3, Omega 6, and Omega 9 plus all the essential amino acids necessary for human health! A handful of hempseed meets the body’s daily requirements for both EFAs and protein. There is no other natural source of both complete protein and correctly balanced essential fatty acids. Hemp is nature’s “Perfect Food.”

    MAUI WOWWIE HEMP DOG PURPLE

    Hemp Dog Cafe is Growing Quickly! ​Currently, Hemp Dog Cafe sets up their mobile cart at festivals, fairs, and events. The Hemp Dog Cafe restaurant will be opening in the Art District in Richmond Virginia soon.

    Hemp Dog Cafe offers Franchise and rental services for entrepreneurs that would love to take advantage of the great products and sell Hemp Dogs at festivals, craft fairs, music venues, sports games, etc.

    RMHA Mission:
    To be a premier resource supporting the Industrial Hemp industry in American

    We accomplish this by:
    • Educating and informing the public about the health, environmental, and economic benefits of reviving an industry that has been prohibited for over fifty years;
    • Building a community of individuals, businesses and organizations to facilitate the growth of the industry;
    • Working collaboratively with industry, government officials, and the scientific community to create and implement industrial hemp standards, certifications and regulations.

    Memberships are open to all hemp advocates, educators, farmers, manufacturers, and retailers.

    We firmly believe that American industry is trending towards bio-sustainability and hemp plays a critical role in the establishment of a new economic paradigm. The Rocky Mountain Hemp Association is dedicated to shifting the perception of hemp as being an alternative crop to a mainstream commodity.

    Lynda Parker, Vice President

    We are a 501(c)(6) Colorado non-profit corporation created to encouraging trade and discourse among hemp professionals in Colorado. We were founded as a result of legislative activities that resulted in the passage of Colorado House Bill 12-1099 and Colorado Senate Bill 13-241. Subsequent to the passage of House Bill 12-1099, the industrial hemp pilot program demonstrated the ability of hemp cultivation to remove toxins from the soil. In addition, we are dedicated to the development of the domestic industrial hemp industry. This goal will be attained by coordinating legislation, agricultural organizations, farmers, processors, manufacturers, and retailers. The promotion of the industrial hemp industry is congruent with the desire to improve the environment through production and utilization of hemp farming and products. We see a direct relationship between the products we use and stewardship of the land.

    We have developed close relationships with local and state government agencies to establish regulations that benefit the hemp industry in Colorado. We provide a wealth of expertise in fields ranging from mining and agriculture to hemp materials processing and the latest developments pertaining to laws and regulations.
    The Challenge and the Opportunity: Currently, the infrastructure to process raw hemp is almost non-existant throughout the United States. Currently we import hemp fiber, hurd, and hemp seeds for use in various industries ranging from health food to cosmetics and construction materials. The United States represents ninety percent of the worldwide market for hemp products which is roughly $500 million retail in the U.S. annually and has a RMHA logotrack record of 10% growth per annum.

    Facilitating the production and processing of hemp within the United States will create thousands of jobs and encourage investment in Colorado. Building the infrastructure to process and sustain this new industry will require considerable investment. Educating the public about hemp, its history and uses is very important as we lay the foundations of building and investing in a sustainable industry.

    The Association represents: Colorado hemp farmers, processors, manufacturers, start-up businesses, entrepreneurial endeavors, and retailers National and international industries which recognize the benefits of hemp as a versatile and ecologically-friendly material. We strive to build a viable industrial hemp economy by providing education about the benefits of hemp and providing expert consultation to producers and processors entering the hemp industry.

    The focus of The Rocky Mountain Hemp Association is to create business relationships through a well defined project-based approach. These projects will provide valuable data concerning yields and hemp quality for the purposes of defining the economics and agrology of the Colorado hemp industry. This data will allow interested parties to make informed decisions regarding potential investments in the hemp industry.

    The World’s first hemp-fibre sunglasses.

    design hemp eye

    “Sam Whitten has designed and manufactured ‘hemp eyewear’, sunglasses made from a hemp fibre composite. ‘Research into hemp and its possible applications led to the discovery of hemp and flax fibre composite sheet material which are impregnated with an eco friendly binder,’ said Whitten.The composite sheets require compression moulding under heat to form and cure the material which is normally done with machines. Once the layers in the frame and legs are assembled, the sunglasses are then coated with an eco friendly bio resin to add extra waterproof and strength properties (Source).”

    Industrial hemp has been the world’s super crop for centuries, used for everything from textiles in clothes to parts for cars. It is the strongest plant fibre in the world and is a more sustainable material than even wood.

    We believe this incredible material should be used to create more sustainable and eco-friendly products, and that is why we have used it to make our sunglasses. At Hemp® we use this material to make the only hemp sunglasses available, setting us apart in a competitive industry.

    Industrial hemp is a dynamically functional plant that for millennia has been utilized for everything from paper to textiles and from body products to biofuel. A hemp-based mixture known as hempcrete is now being touted as a high-performance alternative to traditional building and insulation materials. This course will cover a short history of industrial hemp and its current status in the United States and other countries. Participants will learn the advantages of building with hemp as well as current hempcrete construction methodologies. Hands-on practical application will include forming or shuttering, mixing and casting the material within a framed structure, as well as finishing with plasters and coloring. Students will come away with enough knowledge to pursue a hemp building project of their own. Proceeds from this class will support the efforts of the Hemp Industries Association.

    The mission of the HIA, a 501(c)(6) membership-based non-profit trade group, is to represent the interests of the hemp industry and to encourage the research and development of new products made from industrial hemp, low-THC oilseed and fiber varieties of Cannabis. The HIA and HIA Members:

    Some of the leading national research on hemp yields and quality is done in Manitoba. Spearheading the project is Jeff Kostuik, Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Development’s diversification specialist at Parkland.

    The PCDF 2014 hemp trials include:

    -Hemp grain and fibre variety trial looking at yield and quality
    -A seeding date trial
    - A fungicide screening trial
    - A pre-emergent herbicide screening
    - A phosphorus  trial
    “Parkland sends hemp seed across Canada and collects data to evaluate both grain and fibre,” says Kostuik. “Last year, about 64,000 acres of hemp were grown in Canada and this year, we expect to see that number reach about 90,000 acres. Our goal is to find the most profitable way for producers to grow hemp.” Source
    Parkland is currently testing different hemp varieties for fibre quality, grain quality and height. The test sites are located in

    Arborg, Carberry, Melita and Roblin. Some hemp varieties have been more successful inparticular regions, which is very useful information for a producer considering his or her next year’s hemp crop. pcdf

    “The first hemp crops that came to Manitoba were varieties from Europe,” says Kostuik. “We worked with hemp breeders from across Canada to get varieties that we could test in different regions of Manitoba.”

    Diversification Centres are non-profit, applied research organizations directed by local producers and business people. They do applied research and demonstrations on crops, technology and best management practices. Their work advances primary production while supporting sustainable agronomic solutions that benefit local communities and their surrounding landscapes.The centres’ goals:Increase the profitability, sustainability and adaptability of farms.
    Speed up adoption or commercialization of research innovations at the farm level.
    Facilitate the adoption of technical innovations or practices from outside the province/country.
    Improve the overall growth of the agriculture, agrifood and agriproduct sector.
    Transfer of technology is a priority, ensuring producers and industry have access to project results, technical information and emerging opportunities through displays, annual reports, field days and tours. Financial support for the centres is provided by Growing Forward 2, a federal-provincial-territorial government initiaitive.There are four Diversification Centres across the province, in a variety of agro-climatic conditions and soil types to highlight the response of crops in different growing conditions.Parkland Crop Diversification Foundation (PCDF).
    The centre was established in 1996 in Roblin to serve the Parkland regions. It has a range of facilities and plot equipment for applied research projects. PCDF partners with the research and industry communities. The goal is to bring scientific developments quickly to the field as applied research – research that supports diversification and value added opportunities. Market development and information transfer are ongoing priorities for this centre.

    Doug Fine at Hemp is Hope Conference and Workshop, University of Hawaii, Maui August 9 @ 8:00 am – 9:00 pm

    As one of the first 15 states to authorize the reintroduction of the American hemp industry (and, as documented in HEMP BOUND, playing its own unique role in hemp history by hosting a rare federal study during prohibition), Hawaii on the state and private industrial level wants to be early out of the gate as the industry revives. This is because Hawaii needs hemp, for energy, for island-sourced human food and animal feed, and for soil remediation following centuries of sugar cane monoculture. Doug will keynote this one-day conference, speaking about the tri-cropping (three markets for each hemp harvest) model he blueprints in HEMP BOUND. The day will also include a hempcrete brick building hands-on workshop, hemp design discussion, and a talk on legal and permitting issues surrounding hemp’s domestic re-emergence. More info on cost and location coming soon.

    Hemp Is Hope Workshop on Maui Saturday, August 9, from 8:30am to 3pm, with a 1.5 hours hempcrete building hands-on activity from 3-4:30, at the University of Hawaii Maui College Multi-Purpose room.

    Hemp Is Hope Workshop on Maui Saturday, August 9, from 8:30am to 3pm, with a 1.5 hours hempcrete building hands-on activity from 3-4:30, at the University of Hawaii Maui College Multi-Purpose room.

    In April of 2014, Hawaii passed Industrial Hemp Legislation permitting the growth and research of industrial hemp by the University of Hawaii. This legislation creates the exciting opportunity to grow a test crop of industrial hemp for phytoremediation research and use as bio-fuel, but we know there is so much more, namely building material, a food source, and an opportunity to bolster the Hawaiian economy.

    Hemp is Hope for a more self-sufficient Hawaiian future. By bringing nature’s most rapidly renewable resource back to Hawaii, the Islands will have a locally grown feedstock that can be applied in thousands of ways. The Sustainable Biodiesel Alliance, the Hawaii Farmers Union United – Maui Chapter, Doug Fine, the author of Hemp Bound, and Hempitecture are bringing Hawaii its first industrial hemp workshop and we need your help to make this happen! Participants in the workshop will get hands on experience forming their own hempcrete block. The educational workshop will be held Saturday, August 9, from 8:30am to 3pm, with a 1.5 hours hempcrete building hands-on activity from 3-4:30, at the University of Hawaii Maui College Multi-Purpose room.

    This event will be the first comprehensive educational and hands-on hemp workshop in Maui County. The excitement of creating products and materials  locally from hemp to increase our sustainability is palpable. Now is the time to  bring the knowledge to the islands and start developing the skills needed to  create the multitude of products we currently ship in from around the world that could be produced locally — food products, fiber for paper and clothing goods,  building materials, fuel, health and beauty products. Rising fuel costs across the US and internationally create a greater need for Hawaii’s self sufficiency.

    Doug Fine, Friend, Author, Father & Goat Herder

    For the follow-up to his 2008 bestseller Farewell, My Subaru: An Epic Adventure in Local Living, author, investigative journalist,

    and solar-powered goat herder Doug Fine spent the 2011 “Emerald Triangle” cannabis growing season shadowing locally-permitted cultivators from farm to patient in Mendocino, County California. This is a redwood-enshrouded paradise where federal law enforcers are generally not welcome and cannabis is worth $6 billion to farmers annually. The number two crop, grapes, brings in $74 million. Witnessing the impact of the local legalization of cannabis on the Northern California economy and public safety (an experiment fully endorsed by the local sheriff), Fine extrapolated the staggeringly large revenue source he discovered on to a nationwide model in his widely-praised book Too High to Fail: Cannabis and the New Green Economic Revolution.

    Then, in 2013, Fine realized hemp is soon to be even bigger. For more than a year, he researched hemp from Canada (where hemp is a crop valued at close to a billion dollars and growing 20% annually) to Belgium (where farmers grow hemp fibers for use in BMW and Mercedes door panels).

    Hemp Bound

    Hemp Bound- In his new book, Hemp Bound, Fine convincingly argues that hemp will prove even more lucrative to the American economy than psychoactive cannabis. It is, according to Willie Nelson, “a blueprint for the future.” Hemp Bound covers all facets of industrial hemp, from production to digital age industrial applications, and everything in between. Officially published April 20, 2014, pre-order is on now everywhere. When not investigating sustainability and drug policy, Fine lives in New Mexico.  www.dougfine.com

    I created the Budi Bar in 2010 to meet my own need for a food bar that increased focus and attentio

    n and created steady crash free energy.  While studying Psychology and Mind/Body at Harvard, I learned how foods can have the same positive impact as medicine without drastic side effects or costly health expenses.

    We brought together for the first time natural, superfood ingredients that have high antioxidant levels, mind balancing Omega-3 fatty acids, mind focusing amino acids, and natural ingredients that time release energy without causing sugar spikes.

    Budi Bar awardsMy primary goal is giving you the health of superfoods while tasting like a gourmet treat.  After one year of tinkering with the recipe in my apartment kitchen, I created the Budi Bar and many focused fans along the way!
