Support Hemp Blue Jeans And Clothing Company On Kickstarter

hemp blue jeans denim clothing kickstarterHemp has to be one of, if not the, most versatile plant on earth. It was used for so many things prior to getting caught in the crossfire of marijuana prohibition. Hemp can be used for fuel, food, paper, and clothing to name just a handful of things. Americans purchase hundreds of millions of dollars worth of hemp products annually. All of the hemp that goes into those products has to be grown in other countries and imported to America.

Hemp is perfectly safe. One study I heard about found that a person would have to smoke a joint the size of a telephone poll in order to get high from hemp. That of course is not physically possible. So why is hemp banned? There is an exciting effort going on right now on Kickstarter, where a company is trying to start a hemp clothing line ‘that fits your body, your lifestyle, and your beliefs.’ The company is called Hemp Blue. Below is more about their company, via Kickstarter, which is where you can financially support the effort. As of this writing, 300 people have pledged $21,050 of the total $25,000 goal:

Jeans are not just a pair of pants, and hemp is not just another plant.

We all know that a great pair of jeans does a hell of a lot more than keep your legs covered.

A great pair of jeans blends comfort, fashion, good looks, and style with a dash of sex appeal.

Jeans are a staple.

Like a great bottle of wine, jeans only get better as they age. Every tear, fade, and stretch add to their character.

Similarly, hemp is not just another fibrous plant.

Used by mankind for centuries, this miracle of nature can be used to clean up oil spills, build energy efficient homes, create sustainable plastics, and its seeds are undoubtedly one of the worlds most promising super foods.

When woven into fabric, the magic continues.

Hemp fabric is strong, breathable, absorbent, and has amazing anti-microbial properties.

Can you imagine combining the power of jeans and hemp!?

That’s what Hemp Blue is all about.

Our goal is to create an environmentally friendly and sustainable designer denim brand made entirely out of agricultural hemp.

What’s the catch?

Growing hemp in the United States is illegal in most states. While we consumer more hemp products than any country on Earth, American farmers are not allowed to grow the hemp we need to make our jeans!

Due to shady back-room deals, closed in a smoke filled Manhattan suite between robber-barons of the early twentieth century, agricultural hemp is classified as a schedule 1 drug.

Just like heroin, LSD, or ecstasy.

What a sham.

Although a member of the cannabis family, hemp is not weed. You could smoke hemp all day long and never get high.

The untold truth is that a few billionaires decided they needed to protect their interests in the paper and logging industries, and agricultural hemp was their biggest competitor. And their victim.

By supporting our campaign, you will be taking a stand to right this ridiculous injustice.

Almost a hundred years ago, a greedy cartel of unscrupulous tycoons pulled the wool over our country’s eyes.

Today we can take back our freedom.

By sliding your legs into a pair of awesome Hemp Blue jeans, you’ll be doing more than just looking great.

YOU’LL BE WEARING THE TRUTH!

What are the benefits of growing hemp?

Hemp can, and will, play an important role in building a more sustainable future for our kids and grandkids.

  • The cultivation of hemp requires no pesticides, fungicides, herbicides and ads nitrates back into the soil! Did you know that 50% of all the harsh chemicals used today are used in growing cotton?
  • Hemp uses 1/3 less water when being grown and half as much when being processed.
  • One acre of hemp can produce as much paper as 2 – 4 aces of trees, and has a growing cycle of only a few months, instead of a few years.
  • Hemp extracts up to 4 times the amount of carbon dioxide than trees.
  • Agricultural hemp can be used as:
  • An extremely efficient insulation material for energy efficient buildings.
  • A sustainable source of super foods, high in protein and essential fatty acids.
  • A sustainable source for creating paper products.
  • Natural infection-resistant linens for hospitals and bandages for trauma patients.
  • Non chemically processed hygiene products. (This alone could save hundreds of lives per year.)
  • Naturally infection-resistant linens for hospitals and bandages for trauma patients. Some European hospitals already use hemp bedding to reduce the spread of infections.
  • Industrial absorbents for cleaning up oil spills without harming the surrounding ecosphere.
  • Nutritional supplements and medical benefits from CBD oils.
  • Over 20,000 other incredible products!
  • HAVE WE CONVINCED YOU YET?

    There is no reason for hemp being required to have any particular thc content. Breeding of hemp strains which limits the thc on purpose stands to distract from breeding for specific fiber and seed production traits.

    If only hemp did not have any restrictions pertaining to thc content – hopefully those restrictions on %thc in hemp will be removed as soon as possible. I think that some of the valued high thc strains would be great oilseed and food producers! For all we know there may be particular nutritional qualities which are contained in the seeds of high thc varieties cannabis which may be superior to the nutritional qualities of the seeds of some of today’s hemp varieties. Imagine if we could just plant huge acerages in the high thc varieties of cannabis for seed production for food. Planting a small distance from the high thc variety seed producing fields would significantly reduce the seed production and result in a fair amount of herbally useful calyxes (aka ovaries) and the seeds would still predictably and reliably produce high thc cannabis plants. Planting in greenhouses even near the fields would drastically reduce the seeding of the ovaries to only a handful per plant – and in this entirly plausible scenario the contents of thc generation after generation would remain stable. Considering the fact that the United States’ hemp industry still has to build up a seedstock, we ought to be having consecutively larger acerages of high thc varieties of cannabis planted over the next several years to prove that some of the high thc varieties are useful as food and oilseed producers as well as for herbal use. We really ought to have the freedom to try and make this work out. It could be a great example of how a situation without restrictions could yield a great outcome.

    Why not just lobby for removal of the %thc retrictions on hemp to be removed instead of lobbying to ban hemp altogether?

      Honestly, anyone who tries to put any bans on hemp at all is hurting us all so much and hurting the rest of life on earth.

      If people want to have herbal cannabis grows in areas that are well suited to hemp growing and are that concerned about the bit of cross pollination that could occur they could easily build greenhouses (maybe instead of spending money on their cartel golf events) and make the handful of seeds per pound risk go down to virtually none. Commercial grows of herbal cannabis probably make sense to be located close to or in the urban areas where most of the consumption is and in those urban areas there will never be huge fields of hemp.

      If today’s hemp has .3% THC then about 7 grams of hemp would have the same amount of thc as 1/10 of a gram of 21% thc herbal cannabis. If there were no limits on how much could be grown, then a person could just put a lot of hemp in with butter and/ or cream and boil it awhile to achieve a comparable effect to what many herbal cannabis users desire to experience from herbal cannabis. Years ago hemp would have had varying percentages of thc, some of which would have been not that different than some strains used as herbal cannabis not that long ago. Some “ditchweed” strains are an example of this type of multi use crop. So long as there are not restrictions which limit herbal cannabis growth quantities, hemp can actually have similar effects to the strains of herbal cannabis prevalent today. The effect may differ somewhat, but would still satisfy the demands of a significant portion of herbal cannabis consumers.

        Ideally we can convince the beaurocrats to eliminate the thc restrictions on hemp so that the high thc varieties can be given a chance to prove what their food providing potentials are. At this stage of the industry the seedstock of high thc varieties in the United States could easily be made as plentiful as the seedstock of low thc varieties which exists in the United States. It would be a shame if the high thc varieties were never given a chance to prove their food producing potentials. Planted tightly, there are probably some high thc strains which exist and could be developed which would be good fiber producers as well.

        There is no justification for the thc limits which have been placed on industrial hemp. I assume that those limits were put in place by puritan types or by people who are ignorantly bigotted against herbal cannabis use. Large fields of high thc variety cannabis grown for seeds for food and oil (for lotions and perhaps transportation fuel) would be grown tightly enough so as to maximize seed production and would thus not be subject to thievery by herbal cannabis consumers.

        As someone who likes the way that eating cannabis seeds makes me feel and also likes the way that using herbal cannabis makes me feel, I see no reason why we can not find a way to maximize all uses of the plant.

          Unhindered freedom works best and fascilitates innovation. Movements away from freedom would stand to make us as humans miss out on potential opportunities as a cohesive united species.

            When I speak out against golf I am sincerely trying to save my fellow humans from being poisoned by the chemicals which are so abundant on golf courses.

    Jesus you see those prices on the web site. I wouldnt mind supporting them. But no way with those prices. Ill stick with my Lee’s.

    • jasen joseph hylbert

      One reason it is so expensive is that people have put bans on the growth of industrial hemp. Maybe that comapany is just a price gouging company too. I am not a big fan of the cowboy look anyhow, and I like to be able to have a full range of motion. Thus I prefer not to wear jeans.

        Never hear of loose fit or relaxed jeans? Or buy 1 size bigger? If you find your 32 inch jeans to tight find a store or the people that if they make them at 33 inches and where you can buy them. I have been kicked out of stores that jeans came in 2 inch size differences. Then showed them the MFG website that if you needed 33 Inch jeans they have them and no need to go to a 34 or stay with 32 inch jeans and crush the family jewels! But I had the letter taken away from forcefully me by a very angry store manager who promptly shredded the letter. And tried to beat me down. But I won and left the store forcefully by 2 other employee’s. But I got hem down too. And I called the police over the assault. I was charged. The Police took all the store cam footage, reviewed it. Withdrew the charges against me. Then charged the now ex manager of the store with assault, and a handful of other charges. 2 other employees we charged also with the same charges. I had 9 charges withdrawn. In their bail hearing the Judge said VERY sternly “Don’t mess with older people especially because they could be Combat VET’S! Your lucky he did not hurt you really badly other than one broken arm between 3 of you. He held back very well. I applaud him for holding back so well.He could have crippled you or killed you in self defense..He is 58 and your in your early to mid 20’s. What were you thinking? He is old and easy to strong arm out of the store.? Your mistake is you grabbed him hard!” “He just responded in a Military way.that he knew for 25 or more yrs.”. Be respectful and stay in the law! Hemp is a great product. Maybe California should grow it instead of almonds. Almonds take 5 gallons of water to make 1 pound of nuts. Cotton jeans take 1,800 gallons of water to make (growing and prossesing).. Hemp take 1/2 that. A regular cotton t-shirt takes 400 gallons of water to grow. Hemp less than that and makes more fibers. .http://www.treehugger.com/ for more water wastage things we do! Like your Latte…it takes 52 gallons to make your over “I say under” priced so called coffee! Please read the link! It will shock you. The dirty 30’s were called that for a reason. Water was for drinking not bathing in everyday for hours. Want to bath for hours move to India and bath for hours in the river where raw sewage id dumped via ditches, Where the poor peoples dead body’s are thrown into to rot. Where your water is cleaned through the ashes and coals of someone funeral fire ( cremation.) was held.
