The Benefits of Hemp

Hemp is one of the most versatile, prolific & synergistic tools available to tackle key environmental challenges, such as CO2 & land contamination. It bio-remediates contaminated soil, improves soil structure & nutrient levels, and can lead to greater yields in follow on crops, such as wheat. Hemp grows without the need of pesticides or herbicides & needs minimal water. It’s one of the most effective CO2 offsets, as it can grow up to 5 metres in only 3-4 months. Hemp is a sustainable raw material & can make approx 10,000+ environmentally responsible & bio-degradable products including plastics, fuel & fibre. Most importantly Hemp can empower small local communities by providing local manufacturing & industry.

So, What Can Hemp Do?

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

Hemp grows to between 1.8 and 4.5 metres tall (dependent on variety/cultivar) in four to five months in the UK. Weeds are almost eradicated due to the dense canopy of shade leaves, eradicating the need for pesticides and herbicides. It can also be grown with no agricultural chemicals, reducing soil toxicity.

RESTORES SOIL HEALTH

Hemp is so versatile that it thrives in adverse soil conditions. It sends out strong root networks, locking Nitrogen in it’s leaves. The deep roots provide a binding function, helping to prevent soil erosion, and hemp was also used to clean up the nuclear spill in Chernobyl, Russia.

CARBON SEQUESTRATION

One hectare of industrial hemp can absorb approximately 15 tonnes of CO2 (Lhoist 2016) making it one of the fastest CO2-to-biomass conversion tools. Industrial hemp is the perfect carbon sink because it absorbs more CO2 per hectare, annually, than any other commercial crop or commercial forestry.

HEMP IS NOT MARIJUANA

While they come from the same plant species, Cannabis Sativa, hemp products have only trace amounts of THC, the psychoactive chemical in marijuana. Industrial Hemp cannot get you high.

HEMP HAS A LONG HISTORY IN THE U.K.

In 1533, King Henry VIII made hemp cultivation compulsory by law. For every 60 acres, farmers had to grow about 1/4 acre of flax or hemp, or else they would face a fine for breaking the law. They could even pay their taxes with Hemp.

PRESENT HEMP SITUATION IN THE U.K.

In the UK, it is estimated that the maximum area under cultivation is no more than 810 hectares. By comparison, in 2016, Europe cultivated over 33,000 hectares of industrial hemp an increase of more than 30% on the previous year.

HEMP IS MAKING A COME BACK

Although the size of the UK hemp cultivation sector is currently extremely small, the BHA are already bringing innovation to the industry through pioneering research at York University and other leading institutions.

HEMP FOR HUMANITY

Globally, hemp has been recognised for thousands of years as an extremely versatile, robust and environmentally friendly plant delivering considerable societal and economic benefits to people and communities.

MAKE HEMP FARMING ACCESSIBLE

For hemp to be a viable cash crop for our farmers and processors, we need to be allowed to utilise the entire plant. The BHA's focus is to contribute to inform, educate and lobby for progressive and environmentally responsible legislative change.

The British Hemp Association

The BHA

Launched in 2018, the British Hemp Association is a coalition of hemp-based companies representing every link of the product chain, from seed to shelf.

In order to leverage and maximise this new opportunity for hemp, we need to remove ‘blockages’ to development; in particular growers and processors need to be empowered to fully utilise the entire industrial hemp plant and all its products.

We believe it is clear, that the UK has a real opportunity to play a leading role in the development and expansion of this rapidly emerging industry; bringing a new ‘cash-crop’ to UK agriculture, creating jobs across the entire supply chain and establishing a ‘hemp innovation’ hub for Europe.
