Did you know that for every 3 tonnes of hemp fiber grown per acre .6 tonnes of carbon is sequestered? This is done as the roots which remain after harvest are naturally returned into the soil. Compared to wheat crops growing ~.75 tonnes per acre and sequestering .15 tonnes of carbon back into the soil. Hemp in this scenario has an additional .45 tonnes of carbon, per acre, that it recaptures. This was proven by a Canadian study all the way back in 2001!

There are so many other ways hemp can positively impact our world. Stay tuned to learn more!
