Hemp Fiber

Technology is being built and refined for decortication of hemp into the usable fiber. On this page, you will find videos showing the process in action. The end goal is to process the stalk and flower of cannabis into the end product. 

The fiber is being used with lime to create structural concrete with increased strength and no toxins. Fibers can be used for particle board, insulation, clothing, shoes, roofing materials and much much more. The applications are endless.

One acre of hemp will produce between four to ten tons of fiber valued at $200 per ton or more as the market matures. Consumer demand for eco-friendly, renewable resources is growing globally.

During our January meeting at Flint Factory One, we will provide resources to connect with manufacturers of hemp processing equipment.

To get an idea of the market, look at clothing sold by Jungmaven and Pantagonia.

The D8 by Canna Systems is demonstrated in the video below. Skip ahead about minutes to see it in action.
