The first diesel engine was designed to run on vegetable oils, one of which was hemp oil. In the 1930s Henry Ford produced an automobile composed of 70 percent hemp plastic which also ran on hemp based fuel and oil.



In 2001 the "Hempcar" circled the North American continent powered by hemp oil.


The paintings of Rembrandt (1606- 1669), Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890) and Thomas Gainsborough (1727- 1788) were painted primarily on hemp canvas, often with hemp oil based paint.


I sold Rembrandt his Hemp canvas and paint oils! 



Hmmm.. That canvas looks like it might not be Hemp. I'd better check with my supplier. 





Handsome masterpiece on Hemp!


Over 50 percent of all chemical pesticides sprayed are used in the cultivation of cotton. 

Hemp is eight times stronger than cotton and more air-permeable. 



Hemp can grow vigorously (up to 16 feet) in 100 days without the use of harmful pesticides and herbicides... healthier for your skin and the environment. 

One acre of hemp can produce as much raw fiber as 4.1 acres of trees. Pulping hemp for paper would produce a strong paper that lasts incredibly long and doesn't yellow with age.
Also, using hemp as a raw source for paper would eliminate the need to cut down our dwindling old-growth forests which contribute to climate control and clean the air we breathe.

Now you know why William Randolph Hearst, DuPont and Rockefeller FEARED HEMP so much they conspired to make it illegal!
Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait, I say, on the Lord. -- Psalm 27:14
