As you can see Hemp is a basic raw material with thousands of uses currently and countless future applications. Hemp Is Not Only Renewable, it Goes Beyond Sustainable and Allows for Real Growth.
Yes Trees are Renewable but Hemp is Sustainable
Over half of all trees cut down are cut down to be made into paper. Most trees for paper require forty plus years till harvest. Many trees much older than this have been and still are being cut, for paper. Hemp can grow to harvest in 3 months or less. Two hundred plus trees, about the size of a pencil, 12 to 20 ft. tall, to a square yard, in just 3 month or less. Hemp makes better paper, with less chemicals and energy used, than paper made from tree fiber. Most modern paper pulp mills use 1,500 tons (3,000,000 lbs) that’s a lot, of tree fiber every day. Modern pulp mills run 24 hrs. a day 7 days a week and only close 2 weeks each year for maintenance. There are thousands of giant pulp mills and thousands on a smaller scale. One of the beauties of Hemp is, it will work in these modern, multi-billion dollar giants and the smaller factories also with no major changes in machinery (Fiber is Fiber). It will take less toxic chemicals, one example (hydrogen peroxide instead of chlorine to bleach the pulp to bright white) and less heat (energy) to produce a superior product in every way. The fastest growing part of the building materials industry is composites. Take a tree chop it into little pieces then glue it back together, in whatever shape you choose, that’s a composite. I like to say, “the first law of composites is, all other things being equal, the longer the fiber the stronger the product”. Most tree fiber used in composites has a fiber length of 3/4 inch or less. Hemp fiber is longer, stronger and more resistant to rot than tree fiber. Hemp bast fiber (the outer stringy bark) can be yards long and has greater strength than tree fiber. These long, strong, rot resistant fibers mixed with today’s composite technology leads the why to super strength, environmentally friendly, sustainable building materials. Want to curb the destruction of this worlds forest, grow Hemp. Hemp Fiber, Can Replace Tree Fiber, in Today’s Modern Multi-Billion Dollar Giants and Smaller Paper and Composite Factories, also. Grow it and they will come. TREES = FIBER HEMP = FIBER
HEMP = HEALTH

“Hemp is Hip, Hot and Happening”
Increasingly found on store shelves, shelled hemp seeds (“hemp nuts”) and cold-pressed oil have exceptional nutritional benefits and rich flavor. They are used in salad dressings, nutrition bars, flour, breads, cookies, granola, meatless burgers, nut butter, protein powders, chips, pasta, coffee blends and frozen desserts. Virtually all hemp nut and oil in U.S. foods are imported from Canada.An impressive 33 percent of the hemp nut is high-quality protein, providing all essential amino acids in a reasonable balance, making it an attractive component of a meat-free diet. Hemp also contains significant amounts of the vitamin E complex and trace minerals such as magnesium, iron, and manganese. But hemp seeds are valued primarily for the exceptional fatty acid composition of their oil, which makes up 30 percent of the whole seed and 44 percent of the nut. Studies link many common ailments to an imbalance and deficiency of essential fatty acids (EFAs) in the typical Western diet: too much omega-6 and not enough omega-3. Consuming sufficient omega-3 in the right EFA ratio has impressive benefits, including: reducing cholesterol, reducing the risk of atherosclerosis and sudden cardiac death, reducing the need for insulin among diabetics, decreasing the symptom of rheumatoid arthritis, promoting mood improvement in bipolar disorders, and optimizing development in infants. Hemp oil contains the most EFAs of any nut or seed oil, with the omega-3 and omega-6 EFAs occurring in the nutritionally optimal 1:3 ratio. As a bonus it offers the higher-potency omega derivatives GLA and SDA.” With that said, let me say I have used hemp seed oil personally on many ailments that have affected myself and others, over the past seven to eight years, here in Belize. I have not seen any negative reactions to the use of hemp seed oil internally or externally. I have personally used and seen hemp seed oil work with good to excellent results on many different bug bites (Mosquito, sand fly, doctor fly even bee stings), different burns ( sun and kitchen), fungi ( athletes foot, ring worm, jock itch) rashes ( heat and diaper) plant infections, and many more things that affect our skin and the skin of our animal friends. Most mornings I mix two tablespoons full into sweetened condensed milk and add it to my coffee. It is an oil you know, so my stomach and intestines are running smooth as silk. My colesterol was 280 is now 150, triglycerides were 627 are now 80 and decreased toe nail fungus and those white spots many people erroneously call liver spots all without any expensive or dangerous prescription medicine. And did I mention hemorrhoids? If you have a flair up put some hemp seed oil on the spot and get immediate relief from itching and burning. To stop the recurring flair ups take a spoon or two full daily and you will not have flair ups. So it is the only hemorrhoid medicine you can put in both ends.
HEMP = OIL
Crude oil from the ground is a basic raw material used to manufacture thousands of items from fuel to plastics to clothes and many more. Hemp seed oil can be made into thousands of items from fuel to plastics to clothes and many more. Crude oil takes millions of years to renew. Hemp takes 3 months, plus or minus a few days, to renew. Crude oil requires a multi-billion dollar refinery that pollutes everything around it. Hemp seed only requires a cold press with no toxicity to the environment. Crude oil is toxic and every manufacturing process and their products are also toxic. Hemp is grown organically without toxic chemicals and is actually healthy for the environment and humans. You can make fuel, plastics, paints & sealants, medicines & cosmetics and food supplements for better health, from Hemp seed oil. Petrochemicals, thousands of wonderful products all of which are toxic in one way or another to the human condition. Hemp seed oil, drink it to lower cholesterol , triglycerides, sugar and rid your body of unwanted fungi at the same time, cleans out your digestive tract, rub it on your skin for fungi, rashes, acne, itches, burns and plant infections, put it on your salad, make plastic from it, or put it in your automobiles engine. Want to feel wonderful? Try a full body massage with hemp seed oil. Cho, outa dis world man. By the way, with two or three harvest a year possible here in Belize, using current information, 60 to 200 gallons of oil per acre per harvest, and a wholesale value of $100 bz per gallon on the world market (do the math), just the seed and its’ oil make it an extremely profitable crop. And that’s just the seed, you still have the rest of the plant , Fiber and Hurd, with very large yields and high values on the world market, and it’s an organic crop. You want to boost Belize’s economy? Plant hemp!!
HEMP and PROHIBITION
In order to understand the prohibition of hemp we must understand there have been many prohibitions throughout man’s history for many different reasons, and very rarely were they just. This set up starts with the prohibition that started just a few years ahead of hemp and with its end came the start of hemp prohibition. That prohibition, was the prohibition of alcohol. It is not just some coincident that these two took place together in time. but a very well planed deception. Prohibition of alcohol and hemp, is really about OIL. EXPLAIN? SURE!! Please do not take your eyes from this paper as I, William Conde, will now attempt an extremely dangerous feat. That feat ladies and gentlemen is to open your mind to an almost 100 year old lie that was so well done that three generations down the road, and those who continue the lie might not even know that it is, one of greatest deceptions of all time. Let’s give it a shot! Henry Ford makes cars. Cars need fuel. Dupont has fuel. There are no gas stations. How do people fuel their new Fords? They make there own fuel, ALCOHOL. When given a choice the people preferred alcohol fuel to gasoline, besides the gasoline stunk. That people still were breathing clean air the smell of gasoline burning was obviously toxic to many noses. So gasoline was no overnight sensation. People did not want gasoline fuel. This was a real problem to a few very rich folks who had big investments in oil and it’s derivatives. Oil and the products made from it require large investments ,thus lending themselves to a central control and huge profits. Alcohol can be made very easily from many different materials, thus lending itself to a decentralized control and a greater distribution of the profits. I can’t prove it but I believe Dupont, Ford and a few others knew that in order to sell the public gasoline, which they controlled, they would have to eliminate alcohol from the equation. How would they do this? THEY WOULD LIE!! Look, there’s woman’s temperance. They have been trying for 50 years or more to outlaw that DEMON ALCOHOL. Let’s get behind those gals and give them a boost. And that is exactly what they did. They gave them everything they needed to rid the world of that Demon Alcohol and just by coincidence that FUEL ALCOHOL gets silently put to death under that Demon Alcohol prohibition. They set up world wide prohibition and new police to enforce that prohibition. All equipment, for manufacturing alcohol for consumption or for fuel, is systematically sought out and destroyed. So prohibition of alcohol wasn’t really about trying to control peoples desire to consume alcohol, it was about knocking out the competitive natural fuel, alcohol and centralizing the control of the profits. Just in case you did not know, as it got past most of our grandparents, that when you burn alcohol you have carbon dioxide as a byproduct, which feeds the plants that breath carbon dioxide and give us oxygen While burning gasoline gives us carbon monoxide, which is poison to all life as we know it. Got it!! So what does this all have to do with HEMP? Well I’m so glad you asked. Everything!! Same people, same tactic, same time, same reason, OIL, and it’s thousands of products and their two greatest natural competitors ALCOHOL and HEMP. Hemp is the ultimate producer of oil in this world, 60 to 200+ gallons of oil per acre per harvest, not to mention the alcohol and thousands of other products that can be made from the hurds, in about 3 months. WOW you mean farmers could now own their own oil wells, so to speak, YES. Each area can have its own refinery, so to speak with a simple cold press. See, hemp like alcohol is something that can be grown and processed very easily almost anywhere. There we go again, hemp, allows for decentralized control of the largest raw material resource in the world. (see past issues of -HEMP HEMP HOORAY- The Belize Times May 8th - 15th - 22nd and 29th). The same year DuPont introduces NYLON (a synthetic fiber) to the world, HEMP (a natural fiber) prohibition begins. How did they ever get laws against hemp, when for over 10,000. years it was one of the most useful, most cultivated crops on this planet. THEY LIED!! First of all they didn’t tell anyone they were talking about hemp. They took a Mexican slang word, and used it. They convinced the U.S. Congress that this was the newest most hideous drug of all time. It was mainly used by Mexicans and Negro Jazz musicians. It could be used to make white women have sex with men of color. It was the flowering tops of specially grown Indian Hemp, they called it, MARIJUANA. This couldn’t be the same hemp herbal medicine used safely by most humans in most cultures around the world for the past 10,000 or so years, could it? Oh no it’s something new it’s something they have never heard of, it’s ahh marijuana. So just like the Demon Alcohol was used as a smoke screen to get Fuel Alcohol, the new Demon Marijuana was now a smoke screen to get rid of HEMP. While it is true that in the past Hemp and Marijuana were different names for the same tree and still are, new strains of “INDUSTRIAL HEMP” are now grown with no “THC”. But those oil people are still in power and still do not want a natural competitor to their synthetic world. So the Real Reason for Prohibition of Alcohol and the Continued Prohibition of Hemp Has Nothing to Do with Someone Taking a Drink or Smoking a Joint.IT’S ABOUT OIL, CONTROL, and BIG MONEY
