«Hemp does not need chemicals, and few herbs or insects affect it…»
(Herer, Jack / Bröckers, Mathias: El cáñamo y la conspiración de la marihuana: el emperador está desnudo (Hemp and the marijuana conspiracy: the emperor is naked) [11th edition]. Spain: Castellarte, 2002, p. 15).
2. THE PRODUCTS
2.1. Description of the Products.
The hemp growers whose products we offer produce several tonnes of industrial hemp each year. At THE HEMP GROUND, S.L. you can acquire any part of the plant, from the valuable hemp flowers to the biomass, and we organise national and international shipments for our clients.
Some of the most prestigious companies from the medical, cosmetic, textile, food supplement and animal food sectors use industrial hemp in their products.
The market for industrial hemp is growing continuously and demand is constantly rising.
2.2. Only the best.
Each season, our hemp growers select the plants with the best characteristics for cultivation. We thus guarantee high and constant quality. The merchandise of our hemp growers stands out for its high levels of CBD. Furthermore, we place special emphasis on maintaining THC levels below the legally permitted local limit. These excellent levels enable us to export our industrial hemp to different countries, always respecting local legal levels.
We carry out very strict tests to maintain our high quality standard.
At THE HEMP GROUND, S.L. we know that industrial hemp is a very versatile raw material that grows very quickly and contributes something to the environment: it cleans the air, regenerates the soil and barely needs chemicals for its cultivation or subsequent transformation.
In maritime navigation, the hemp plant has been used since the Vth century B.C. Sails, ropes and most of the sailors’ clothing were all made of hemp. As well as its use as a textile, the stalks were used as a sealing material for ships.
In China, hemp fibres have been transformed into paper since the 1st century A.D. This paper lasts for up to 100 times longer than papyrus, which has enabled ancient knowledge to be preserved on hemp paper while that written on papyrus has been lost. In the West, hemp paper began to be used in the time of Christopher Columbus. To produce hemp paper, only a fifth of the surface area cultivated to produce conventional paper is required. Thanks to the composition of its fibres, many fewer chemicals are required during its transformation.
Compared to cotton, hemp fabrics are softer, warmer more absorbent and more resistant. Until 1820, 80% of fabrics were made of hemp. This includes clothing, tents, bed clothes, rugs, curtains, blankets, nappies, towels, etc…
Most of the chemical substances used in agriculture in the USA are applied in the cultivation of cotton. Thanks to its properties, and the lack of natural elements, it is not necessary to use these substances for the cultivation of industrial hemp.
The biomass of industrial hemp can also be used as a biodegradable raw material in construction. It is possible to reduce the environmental impact not only in its acquisition, thanks to its negative CO2 balance and the possibility of growing hemp practically anywhere, reducing its transport, but also in residue management.
On the other hand, the biomass can be used as a fuel without harmful by-products, instead of oil or coal.
As well as the different uses of the natural fibres, the usefulness of the hemp flowers and seeds as a raw material should be underlined.
Hemp seeds, for example, can be transformed into biodiesel, which, as a fuel with a neutral CO2 balance offers an important alternative to diesel made from rapeseed oil. Hemp seeds may also contain important nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants, and they have a high level of Omega 3 fatty acids. They are currently used in foods for human and animal consumption. A well-known website for personalised muesli, for example, offers hemp seeds as an ingredient and protein source.
The hemp flowers provide the highly valued CBD oil. This also has uses in cooking, as well as cosmetics since it helps the body to regenerate. It is for this reason that it can be found in various oils and creams, hair growth and anti-ageing creams.
Hemp has always played an important role in medicine. Its different effects can be developed in a wide variety of medications. A high CBD dose can have anti-epileptic, anti-psychotic and anti-inflammatory effects, among others.
With all these examples, we may conclude that, with sufficient creativity, there are no limits to the applications of industrial hemp.
THE HEMP GROUND, S.L. will supply you with this valuable raw material that will convert your ideas into reality.
The uses of industrial hemp are so numerous that the author and activist, Jack Herer, wagered $10,000 that no-one could refute the following statement:
«If all fossil fuels and their derivatives, as well as trees for paper and construction, were banned in order to save the planet, reverse the Greenhouse Effect and stop deforestation: Then there is only one annually renewable natural resource known that is capable of providing the majority of the world’s paper and textiles; covering the world’s energy needs for transport, industry and housing; simultaneously reducing pollution, and cleaning the atmosphere… And such a substance is... the same one that did it before... Hemp, Cannabis... Marijuana!»
(Herer, Jack / Bröckers, Mathias: El cáñamo y la conspiración de la marihuana: el emperador está desnudo (Hemp and the marijuana conspiracy: the emperor is naked) [11th edition]. Spain: Castellarte, 2002, p. 13)
Meanwhile, various associations and organisations have come together and raised the prize to $100,000. The statement has yet to be refuted.
3.2. The best conditions.
The Maresme region is a coastal plain of the province of Barcelona. To the south, there are clear beaches of turquoise blue water and, to the northeast, the foothills of the Serralada Litoral mountain range. This idyllic region has strong textile, food and metallurgical industries. Agriculture and tourism play important roles in the region’s economy.
The Mediterranean climate of the Maresme region, with its balanced temperatures, fertile lands and pure air, provide the perfect conditions for the cultivation of sustainable products.
The hemp growers we work with know how to get the best from these conditions and thus achieve and maintain a very high quality.
