According to the Notre Dame University publication, The Midlands Naturalist, from a 1975 article called, “Feral Hemp in Southern Illinois,” about the wild hemp fields that annual efforts from law enforcement eradication teams cannot wipe out, an acre of hemp produces:
8,000 pounds of hemp seed per acre. When cold-pressed, the 8,000 pounds of hemp seed yield over 300 gallons of hemp seed oil and a byproduct of 6,000 pounds of high protein hemp flour.
Seed oils are both a food and a biodiesel fuel. Currently, the most productive seed oil crops are soybeans, sunflower seeds and rape seed or canola. Each of these three seed oil crops produce between 100 to 120 gallons of oil per acre. Hemp seed produces three times more oil per acre than the next most productive seed oil crops, over 300 gallons per acre, with a byproduct of 3 tons of food per acre. Hemp seed oil is also far more nutritious and beneficial to our health than any other seed oil crop.
In addition to the food and oil produced, there are several other byproducts and benefits to the cultivation of hemp.
Six to ten tons per acre of hemp bast fiber. Bast fiber makes canvas, rope, lace, linen, and ultra-thin specialty papers like cigarette and bible papers.
Twenty-five tons of hemp hurd fiber. Hemp hurd fiber makes all grades of paper, composite building materials, animal bedding and a material for the absorption of liquids and oils.
The deep tap root draws up sub-soil nutrients and then, when the leaves fall from the plant to the ground, they return these nutrients to the top soil for the next crop rotation.
The residual flowers, after the seeds are extracted, produce valuable medicines. Our farmers need this valuable crop returned as an option for commercial agriculture.
As long as marijuana is forbidden, industrial hemp costs will be economically prohibitive due to the artificial regulatory burdens imposed by the prohibition of marijuana. When marijuana and hemp are legally regulated, industrial hemp will return to its rightful
place in our agricultural economy.
Hemp may be the plant that started humans down the road toward civilization with the invention of agriculture. All archaeologists agree that cannabis was among the first crops purposely cultivated by human beings at least over 6,000 years ago, and perhaps
more than 12,000 years ago.
Restoring industrial hemp to its rightful place in agriculture will return much control to our farmers, and move away from dependence on the multinational corporations that dominate our political process and destroy our environment. These capital-intensive, non-sustainable, and environmentally destructive industries have usurped our economic
resources, clear-cut huge tracts of the world’s forests, given us massive oil spills, wars, toxic waste, massive worldwide pollution, global warming and the destruction of entire ecosystems.
Prohibiting the cultivation of this ancient plant, the most productive source of fiber, oil and protein on our planet, is evil. In its place we have industries that give us processes and products that have led to unprecedented ecological crisis and worldwide destruction of the biological heritage that we should bequeath to our children, grandchildren and future generations.
What Is An Acre Of Hemp Worth Wholesale
Do The Math
8,000 # of hemp seed gives you oil
300 gal at $150.00US per 5 Gal bucket
60–5 Gal at $150.00 ea,=$9,000.US
6,000 # flour whole sale $2.00 #
6000 at $2.00=$12,000. $21,00
Just From The Seed
31 Tons Of Fiber
31 tons raw stalk inbales 31 at $75.00=$2,300.
First Value Added Fiber Separation
6 tons bast fiber at $1,000+ =$6,000 25 tons of hurds at $300.=$7,500
Now ask yourself why America is not already the planets leading producer of Hemp Products. Canada has already opened that door and left us sucking hind tit again. Could it be that the blood suckers in D.C. have lost their minds?
THE BIRTH OF THE DEMOCRATIC
The king wanted to go fishing, so he called on the royal weather forecaster and inquired as to the weather forecast for the next few hours. The weatherman assured him that there was no chance of rain in the coming days, so the king went fishing with his wife, the queen. On the way he met a farmer on his donkey. Upon seeing the king the farmer said, “Your Majesty, you should return to the palace! In just a short time I expect a huge amount of rain to fall in this area”. The king was polite and considerate, he replied: “I hold the palace meteorologist in high regard. He is an extensively educated and experienced professional. And besides, I pay him very high wages. He gave me a very different forecast. I trust him.” So the king continued on his way. However, a short time later a torrential rain fell from the sky. The King and Queen were totally soaked and their entourage chuckled upon seeing them in such a shameful condition. Furious, the king returned to the palace and gave the order to fire the professional. Then he summoned the farmer and offered him the prestigious and high-paying role of royal forecaster. The farmer said, “Your Majesty, I do not know anything about forecasting. I obtain my information from my donkey. If I see my donkey’s ears drooping, it means with certainty that it will rain.”
So the king hired the donkey. And thus began the practice of hiring dumb asses to work in the government and occupy its highest and most influential positions. The practice is unbroken to this date and thus, the democrat symbol was born!
