Hemp 2017: Where we stand today.

Posted by Dave Ches on

Industrial Hemp: 2017 Whenever I talk to someone about the hemp industry in the United States, I'm asked the same questions over and over. The top two are; "Why don't we grow hemp here?" "Why don't we make clothing here?"   Not since the 1930's has the U.S. produced industrial hemp in any quantity and by 1937 it's production was severely limited by the Marijuana Tax Act, the exception being during WWII where it was used for things such as rope and canvas for the war effort.    Today in the United States, industrial hemp is riding into states on...

How a catch 22 type law keeps marijuana classified as a schedule 1 substance.

Posted by Dave Ches on

When one talks about conspiracy theories and propaganda used by our government one usually thinks of JFK's assassination, the moon landing or even the existence of aliens among us, (thank you X-Files).The interesting thing about the latest NPR story about the history behind the ban on marijuana is the fact that so many people are still buying into all the government's current rhetoric regarding the drug.If we were playing a Family Feud-style game show and posed the question, "what are the audience's top 5 responses to the word drugs"? We might guess that those top 5 audience responses might be;1...

Posted by Dave Ches on

   Imagine for a moment being able to use plastics made solely from hemp oil. Sounds weird, huh? Well that's what the company that makes Legos is checking into.

But why haven't hemp plastics taken off? The biggest reason has been that hemp production in the US has only recently been approved in a few states and the production of hemp plastics made in the US is non-existent. Once somebody...

Posted by Dave Ches on

Hemp: Is It Really A Superfood? Just about everybody today has either been on a diet, thought about going on a diet or decided to, well...just let the chips fall where they may. No pun intended...Oh alright, maybe a little. People are more and more concerned with having good health, getting plenty of exercise and getting good nutrition. People are becoming better educated about foods, the good and the bad. The tabloid talk shows tout the next and latest food fad, usually with some celebrity's endorsement. At the end of the day though, many of us are overwhelmed by all...

Politics today not much different from 200 hundred years ago. Or, "...A Little Rebellion Now And Then Is A Good Thing...", Thomas Jefferson's 1787 comment.

Posted by Dave Ches on

"When we decided on our '...A little rebellion now and then is a good thing...', hemp t-shirt design, we had no idea the kind of interest we'd get," said Sue Cameron, owner of Green Twine a Florida based hemp clothing website.  Why does the quote stir so much interest today? Whatever your political leanings nobody can deny that there is a political revolution of sorts going on. The Republican party is having it's own internal revolution while the Democrats are in a two way knock down fight. Things promise to be pretty interesting come November. In a letter to James Madison,...
