U.S. Hemp Co. is a non-profit organization dedicated to revealing hemp’s great potential to help solve many of our environmental, financial, and social challenges. Originally located in downtown Santa Cruz, CA, we are now in cyberspace to reach the masses.
Hemp is now grown commercially in 31 different countries, including England, France, Spain, Canada and Australia. Hemp is legally recognized as a natural resource by the United Nations Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT). However, the U.S. is the only industrialized country in the world that still prohibits the growth of industrial Hemp.
Hemp offers a solution to the impending ecological disaster with a return to a plant-based economy, where fuel comes from agricultural hemp biomass, clothes come from eco-friendly hemp strands, food and oils from the highly nutritious hemp seed, paints and lubricants from hemp seed oil, and superior paper products are made from renewable hemp.
The hemp revolution will restore sustainable local agricultural communities, taking away profits from politically powerful oil, chemical and pharmaceutical companies, and preventing costly wars, toxic pollution. and economic uncertainty.
In an age of mass consumption, US Hemp Co stands as a hopeful vision of what is possible when we view ourselves as citizens instead of consumers. We are focused on a single goal: to focus on cooperation and community instead of competition and profits.
