North Carolina based company called Hemp Technologies are building Hempcrete homes in multiple states. Hempcrete are home bases built entirely out of mixture hemp, lime and water. It is energy-efficient, non-toxic and resistant to mold, insects and fire. The house looks amazing but I’m sure it cost a couple hundred pounds of fine grade marijuana. Hopefully companies start using this more and more. They are even using it the UK for walling material.
Seeing Hempcrete as a more efficient and sustainable building material has led to some dubbing it as a gateway product. The people behind the U.K.-based Tradical Hemcrete are using their hemp based product to create a carbon negative thermal walling material. Hemcrete can be used for everything from roof installation to flooring to wall construction. The creators of the Carson, California-based HempTraders.com, distributors of “fine hemp products”, sell Hempboard. Hempoboard is a medium density fiberboard made from 100 percent hemp hurds and can be used to make environmental furniture, counter tops, walls and shelving.
