    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!

    Mission Statement: HEMP-ERA strives to provide high quality hemp products and help create environmental sustainability for future generations through the use of the world’s most useful crop, HEMP.

    What’s in a name? The name HEMPERA is an acronym for Help End Mass Pollution – Environmental Revolution Association. Our passion for hemp stems from our love of nature, and we advocate for the use of industrial hemp as a means of creating environmental sustainability as well as a stronger world economy.

    Empowering communities with hemp! In 2015, we will establish a non-profit 501 C3 where 10% of HEMPERA.com’s profits will go to our non-profit organization, HEMPERA.org. The funds will be used to donate clothing to honor roll students of financial aid families as well as providing healthy, nutritious school lunches for elementary school kids.

    HARTThe remaining 90% of the profits are rolled back into HEMPERA for developing new products, and promoting hemp to the masses.

    Get involved. We encourage any and all with concerns about the environment, your local community, your local economy, or an interest in politics to join our social movement, “The REVOLUTION”. We throw events to network with others interested in hemp, join other organizations to help with environmental issues and attend community events to spread the word about hemp. The REVOLUTION begins here!

    The HART Gallery features artwork on hemp canvas, or hemp paper and we promote Art as Activism.

    The Washington State Chapter of the Hemp Industries Association (HIA) officially formed on May 8th of this year after the conclusion of Washington’s frenzied 2014 legislative session wherein active members of the HIA from Washington participated and lobbied heavily with regard to four industrial hemp bills, none of which ultimately passed. There is a misconception that Washington enjoys a State-sanctioned hemp industry due to the fact that Washington has implemented a State-sanctioned marijuana industry. This counter-intuitive reality is a surprise to most Washingtonians and Americans.

    WAHIA

    WAHIA

    WAHIA

    While Washington HIA members made tremendous progress with legislators and policymakers during the 2014 legislative session, the hemp industry in Washington has not commenced and zero policies or infrastructure exist. The HIA and ACLU of WA also assert that Section 7606 of the [Federal] Farm Bill – which authorizes industrial hemp research in accordance with state law – applies to Washington; but Washington’s Department of Agriculture disagrees. The WA HIA has launched a state campaign to respectfully demand that Washington’s Department of Agriculture act upon the authority granted to it by Section 7606 of the Farm Bill, and promulgate simple rules (using Vermont as its model) for industrial hemp research and test plots.

    Fibre Alternatives, manufacturers of hemp based construction materials, is proud to announce the market release of Hemp Shield HS online_storeWood Finish and Deck Sealer™ — The first and only penetrating wood finish containing 100% hemp oil that is produced in the United States. Hemp Shield™ is suitable for wooden decks, fences, stairs, siding, shutters, furniture — anything wooden that is exposed to the weather. In extensive tests, Hemp Shield™ outlasted all comers, including the highest priced deck finish on the national market. Hemp Shield’s finish is extremely UV resistant, and the trans-oxide pigments used in shaded varieties of Hemp Shield™ provide long lasting color to your outdoor wood that does not hide the grain. Hemp Shield’s unique hemp oil formulation represents a major advance in preservation of outdoor wood — a back-to-the-future choice that, by reviving use of an agriculture based oil feed stock, has created a sustainable, environmentally friendly finish that outlasts the most expensive petroleum based finishes. Hemp Shield™ also resists environmental attacks from mildew, algae, and fungus, but in “Clear” formula, contains only 9g/l volatile organic compounds (VOC’s), almost 60 times less than other products labeled “Low VOC”. Hemp Shield products contain none of the 289 hazardous air pollutants (HAP’s) listed by the EPA. Non-toxic, environmentally friendly Hemp Shield Wood Finish and Deck Sealer™ offers superior performance in a sustainable, truly “green” waterproofer and protectant for outdoor wood.

    Hemp Shield Outlasts All Waterproofers In Weathering Tests

    Hemp Shield Wood Finish and Deck Sealer™ was designed to provide excellent durability under field conditions, and to meet or exceed the requirements of the following American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards.

    1) ASTM D 1006 — Exterior Exposure Tests of Paint and Wood
    2) ASTM D 3456 — Exterior Exposure Tests for Susceptibility of Paint Film to Microbiological Attack
    3) ASTM D 3719 — Quantifying Dirt Collection on Exterior Panels

    Hemp Shield Wood Finish and Deck Sealer™ was tested in an Accelerated Weathering Chamber (ASTM D 4587), where it out-lasted all competitors, including Thompsons Water Seal™ and Cabot’s Deck Stain™. Hemp Shield Wood Finish and Deck Sealer™ will keep your outdoor wood looking new and natural as long as possible.

    Canada Hemp Foods was founded in 2006 by Robert Rae and Wally Venechuk and is located on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, BC, Canada. As a business that basically started out as “two guys in a garage,” the company has grown to offer nine popular hemp food products that are available in more than 200 stores across Canada and the US, as well as Amazon, Walgreens.com and our online store. Both men had added hemp to their diet on the recommendation of friends in order to clear up some frustrating chronic health conditions – and within weeks their ailments had cleared up, they were losing weight, and had more energy than they’d had in years! Robert and Wally became so convinced of the invaluable health benefits of this nutritious plant, they decided to start a business so they could share it with others. And Canada Hemp Foods was born!

    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).

    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’m beginning my final semester in my degree and have decided to develop my capstone around helping the hemp building

    Joni Lane- "Growing a Sustainable Future and Healing our Built Environment with Bio-Based Materials."

    Joni Lane- “Growing a Sustainable Future and Healing our Built Environment with Bio-Based Materials.”

    industry here in the US the best I can. It’s currently titled “Growing a Sustainable Future and Healing our Built Environment with Bio-Based Materials.”

    I’ve seen too many stories and even personally been effected by the toxicity in our built environment and understand the paradigm shift in thinking about how our products and materials are made, what they contain, and what happens to them after their effective life.

    Hempcrete has no equal as a natural, biodegradable building product, sequestering carbon dioxide for the life of the building. Created by simply combining water, hemp shiv and a lime-based binder it produces a building product with excellent thermal insulating and acoustic properties. Not only breathable but the lime is going to keep the wall from ever having mold or mildew growth. Hempcrete is also fireproof, pest resistant, and drastically reduces the need for heating and cooling. The fact that Hempcrete is said to be a superior material begs the question – why isn’t it more widely used?

    The consensus amongst the leaders within this industry seems to be that the US is lacking the certifications and tests that mainstream products must undergo for adoption. So, for my capstone, I’m going to help break down that barrier and decipher these specific third party tests need. Compressive and tensile load tests, fire resistance, flame spread, etc.

    Currently looking at starting with launching a crowdsourcing funding campaign beginning at $100,000 – to acquire the funds for these tests and standards. I hope to collaborate with the leading players in the industry to help form a co-op to facilitate what needs to be done, all while bringing awareness to this product, and inspire its widespread adoption.
