IHANSW is reinstating industrial hemp to its proper place – both commercially and agriculturally. Industrial hemp assists in improving the quality of soil and helps reduce accumulation of carbon (CO2) and minimizes damage caused by the greenhouse effect.
Importantly, industrial hemp is a plant cultivar low in THC and high in fibre yield – every part of the plant is used: leaves, stalks, seeds and the roots – it provides an alternative to petrochemicals, synthetic pharmaceuticals, unsustainable building materials, textiles and food.
Diverse business developments based on Industrial Hemp are being developed throughout Australia in areas of pharmaceutical R&D, agronomy, breeding seed for bast/hurd fibre, building-related products, oil production, cellulose-based plastic development and in the manufacturing/wholesaling/retailing, clothing/textile sectors, available for export.
