A MODERN INTRODUCTION TO HEMP BY PAUL BENHAIM
"A must read for all who love Hemp and care for their health and well-being"
Hemp is one of the world's most remarkable resources, producing a staggering array of foods, fuels and fibres - the basic building blocks for an industrial society, all from a single plant source. Hemp is a superior source of fibre for clothing, paper, plastics and permanent building materials, oil for methanol fuels, and a myriad of cleaning and paint products.
As a commercial crop Hemp requires no pesticides to grow, improves soil structure, and is more efficient and sustainable than conventional forestry. Hemp is widely considered "the perfect renewable resource", as it can be grown throughout the world (to maturity in under 100 days), all year round.
The healing and pain relieving powers of Hemp are legendary. Claimed by many to be a Superfood, hemp seeds provide a excellent source of protein and beneficial fatty acids (omega 3, 6 and 9). Hempseed Oil is renowned for it's moisturising and rejuvenating qualities and is used in fine cosmetics and soaps, as well as many hair, skin and body products. In short, the diverse uses and beneficial qualities of Hemp are unsurpassed in the plant kingdom.
Industrial Hemp offers a promising alternative to petrochemical based plastics, creative and environmentally friendly building materials, Hemp hurds (for cleaning and absorbing industrial waste, effulent and oil spills), a cheap source of diesel fuel, and a low cost/high yield product well suited for developing nations to create and maintain a stable economy.
Paul Benhaim is a recognised world authority in Hemp research and development, as well as a published author of Hemp related Books and DVD's. He manages the world's most popular hemp related websites and advises a number of international hemp production companies. As CEO of two cutting edge Hemp R&D / manufacturing companies, Paul continues his quest to improve recipes, formulas and production capabilities to bring new and revolutionary Hemp products to a world wide audience.
A qualified Yoga teacher, masseur, raw foods chef, and keen gardener, Paul lives and works from his rainforest home in coastal Australia.
