I know that trading it is forbidden on the forum, but is discussing it? just double checking.

Cannabis is the healthiest crop. I talked to the outreach person for an industrial hemp growing operation in Canada and they told me upfront that they only use 1 pesticide. Most crops have tons, and herbicides, too. Cannabis muscles out all the other plants, tho :P

I have heard that cannabis leaves the soil healthier than any other crop and i don't even think you have to do crop rotation. I have also heard they use Hemp plants to clean up the air and soil around bom(b) testing sites.

not only that. thousands of strong textile products, oils, food from the seeds, medication, building materials, anti-cancer properties, anti-stress properties, strong, recyclable paper that doesnt yellow, and nitrocellulose or dynamite. Henry ford wanted to make cars from hemp plastic that were strong and light, that could run on hemp oil. if someone wanted to, they could grow nothing but hemp and be completely self sustaining.

I think BMW uses hemp plastic on there cars.

Have you heard about hempcrete? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hempcrete

you could make hempcrete to build a very nice house. You can use the fiber to make it strong and the pulp to add pockets of air for insulation. you get mass and insulation all in one process.

And hempcrete gets stronger with age. Most other materials break down, but the limestone in hempcrete mineralizes it.

I read that 65% of all pesticides produced in the world are used for just cotton crops.
