Questions about Industrial Hemp in Malawi
Last Poster: jacks in Hemp & It's Potential on June 28, 2016, 05:22:47 PM
On 16th June 2016, Parliament resolved that government should legalise the growing and usage of industrial hemp, both at policy and legislative levels.Indian hemp's narcotic relative, also known to users as Malawi gold, is so popular


‘Industrial hemp must be recognized, appropriately, as an agricultural crop, for industrial purposes distinct from other cannabis varieties.’-Speaker of the National Assembly, Rt. Hon. Richard Msowoya
This news was received with excitement. Especially, within the community of those who trade and partake the green herb. They were Singing Marlon’s Ashley-Ganja Farmer. Until when they heard that industrial hemp is different from Marijuana. Marijuana makes you get high, but industrial hemp if smoked can only produce a massive headache. Industrial hemp does not make one high. - See more at: http://www.nyasatimes.com/questions-industrial-hemp-malawi/#sthash.uhW09YDg.dpuf

Waste of time to grow hemp, even if you want it for the other uses.

You would need a field to make anything from it.

But it does replenish soil.. so plant it on you veggie patch when you rotate you r crops.


Uses for Cannabis
Last Poster: Garethleauk in Hemp & It's Potential on December 09, 2014, 09:23:34 PM
Cannabis is no humble herb but the monarch of vegetative species which has existed in symbiosis with Mankind rendering important benefits at least since the dawn of the cultivation of mental faculties in homo sapiens.
The smoking of a variety of suitably arranged bongs or pipes of hashish, the plant's compressed resin, or of herbal Cannabis, is described in many cultures and in some of Mankind's earliest literature, since which time and up to the present day, Cannabis has been used as prophylaxis, against malaria among other conditions, cure for leprosy, as vermifuge, and antibiotic poultice for wounds.
Cannabis was, and is, noted as effective in that it “stimulates mental powers,” “creates energy,” “alleviates fatigue,” is “refreshing and
stimulating” “creates the capacity for hard work and the ability to concentrate,” “sharpens the wits,” and “sharpens the memory.” (See British-Indian Hemp Commission’s report.)

Buddhists and Hindus share respect for Cannabis as the Holy Plant given for “the welfare of Mankind.” Cannabis is praised for its enjoyment, enlightenment, and healing properties, as in the Bhagavad-gita, and scripts of antiquity regarded by Buddhists as sacred. In his personal writings on the subject of Cannabis, George Washington expressed “a preference for the female flowertops.” (US National Archives.)
There is no known use for the flowertops except for smoking or otherwise ingesting them for relaxant/health use.
Cannabis: World Resources

Textiles/Fabrics/Natural fibre: Clothing and Products.
Paper/Cardboard/Newspaper: Let the tree's live.
Chipboard/Particle Board: Again, let the tree's live.
Building Material: 'Isochanvre' Cannabis Bricks.
Staple Food: Seed does not contain relaxant ingredients. Rich in protein and containing the amino acids essential to efficient functioning of the human immune system, seed can be substituted for the flesh of animals in the healthier human diet. It is excellent for milling and baking into bread, cereals, cakes, and in casseroles, (false/veg) 'meat loaf', etc. Highly nutritious like soya, cannabis is source of plant milk, cheese, yoghurt curds, and cream. Raw or toasted in salads, the seed can also be ground into butter. The flavour is delicate and delicious. cold-pressed seed provides polyunsaturate oil suited to cuisine for cooking and salad dressings.
Eradication of Famine: Cannabis can be cultivated everywhere mankind lives. Even semi-arid, marginal land would assist in eradicating world famine throughly, and in a way no other staple food species is capable of doing.
Prevention and Reversal of Desertification: Seeding from suitable cargo-airplanes (e.g. Hercules, Galaxy) overflights, will reclaim land suffering from recent and ongoing desertification.

Traditional and Modern Uses of Cannabis

Cannabis has numerous applications, including the following:

* personal relaxant-medicament
* textiles, from mature and post-mature plants
* fabric, from densely sown, immature plants, for all types of garments.Finer then silk, four times stronger then the strongest cotton, water-rot resistant, and cheaper
* thread, yarn, twine, cordage, rope, cables nd matting
* canvas, tarpaulins, art canvas
* carpets, tapestries, curtains
* toweling - cannabis feels softer, is warmer to the touch, and is more absorbent then cotton
* paper
* pyrolytic fuel-oil (and vegetable oil) for the lighting of lamps - the fibres of the wick being of cannabis too. Until the relatively recent era of the mass slaughter of oil-yielding whales, followed on by petroleum products, Cannabis oils provide the greater part of night light of Mankind throughout history
* green, clean biomass, oil and petro-chemical products
* plastic, the strongest plastics with the longest molecule
* oil, tars, pitch, creosote oil, chemicals, paints, resins, protective coatings
* sealant. 'Oakum'
* varnish, preferred by artists for its speedy oxygenation, quick-drying
* linoleum floor covering
* adhesives, glue: embalming fluids (used since Pharaonic times)
* cosmetics, soap; antiseptic ointments, poultices; muscle cream; health-care products
* oleracous herb, ingredient for cooking. Herbal tea; ('Bhang' made from cannabis, is synonymous with Bengal, Bangalore, Bangkok, etc., and Bang-la-desh, which translates as people of the Land of Cannabis.)
* vegetable oil for cooking and salad dressings
* seed cake (pressed) and seed. High protein, delectable food for humans.
* seed and seed cake for high quality animal and pet foods.


"Cannabis is the King of plants."
In 1941, Henry Ford built an entire car out of Cannabis (except for the engine).
Its not just another plant, its greater then all the other plants combined, and the healthiest substance, for the finest plastics (it has the longest molecule), paper, fuel (clean and green), food (staple single source) and all fiber known to man.100 years ago everyone including children knew this and 85% of everything we used was derived from the plant. It was the number one subject taught in school.


Cannabis Biomass THE SCIENTIFIC SOLUTION TO THE WORLD CRISIS.
Last Poster: Garethleauk in Hemp & It's Potential on December 09, 2014, 09:20:53 PM
The Cannabis Biomass Energy Equation. Modern Uses of Cannabis.


THE FREE SOURCE OF WORLD FUEL-ENERGY.

When cannabis is cultivated for its profitable nutritious seed-food (which, as noted, does not contain relaxant ingredients), all the by-products listed here (which are source to literally thousands of commercial products), are derived from a resource which is thus production-cost-free (i.e. free). R0. Zero. Mahala.

1 ACRE OF CANNABIS HEMP =
4 acre of trees
20 barrels of oil
650 Kg of fibre...
FOR FREE.
"For Mankind’s macroeconomic requirements, energy derived from cannabis is cheaper than energy from coal, oil, natural gas, uranium, wind and wave-power, ethanol, geo-thermal, bio-diesel and pressed-seed vegetable oils, hydrogen-from-water electrical separation, etc. Cannabis is the most economical resource to fuel and energy known to Mankind. Cannabis-Methanol provides fuel which is pollution-free."

These statements are demonstrated as fact, for the first time on record, by the analysis given which comprises The Cannabis Biomass Energy Equation (CBEE), in Part Two of THE REPORT.

"To the question, ‘Scientific Solution—why cannabis ?’— the answer follows:"

"Firstly, Cannabis Sativa is the most prolific and quick-growing bulk-producing wood-plant species. Secondly, the best explanation of how cannabis can replace Mankind’s misuse of fossils and uranium as ‘fuel’, is contained in the following axiom:"

"Everything which is derived from hydrocarbons can also be derived from carbohydrates."

"Carbohydrates are the basis of biomass; that is, organic material, plants and organisms. Oil and coal are fossilised biomass. All are carbon-based matter. Commercial goods (plastics, man-made fibres, products, paints, chemicals, etc.) fuel, and energy now extracted from oil and coal can equally be produced from fresh, recently grown biomass. The technical viability of biomass as a resource to fuel and energy is well established and demonstrated."

‘THC-rich’ Cannabis Sativa grows up to and over 15 feet (c. 5 meters) in height without fertiliser in a single season (4 months), yielding:
~delectable protein-rich meat-substitute staple seed food (no relaxant in seed and similar to soya), producing ‘meat-loaf’, cereals, nut-butter, plant milk, yoghurt-curds, cold-pressed vegetable oil for cuisine; contains the requisite amino acids essential to the effective functioning of the human immune system;
~cellulose-rich bulk wood-hurds for virtually unlimited quantities of pyrolytic cannabis-methanol fuel and lubricants for all industrial and domestic electricity generation and transportation requirements;
~hurds for cellulosic polymerisation producing plastics (all types), man-made fibres (e.g. nylon), resins, varnish and paints;
~hurds as a superior resource to trees for paper, newsprint and card;
~hurds for chipboard modern furniture materials; and,
~juvenile to mature plants yield all grades of natural fibre for textiles, clothing, velours, etc. (also see Dresden Cotton ®).
77 to 80 per cent of the biomass of cannabis is comprised of cellulose, a carbohydrate ideal for conversion into the hydrocarbons of fuel. Improved on by modern techniques to achieve efficient conversion of biomass into fuel, pyrolysis is one of Mankind’s earliest technologies, an ancient skill used in Pharaonic times to produce oleaginous embalming fluid for mummification. The same process is used today to refine oil.

Pyrolysis should not be confused with bio-chemical conversion (fermentation) of sugar-to-alcohol which is a capital-investment intensive (costly), slow, and itself an energy-consuming method producing the inferior ethanol not methanol. By contrast, pyrolysis produces the variety of liquid fuels and lubricants type-similar to gasoline and subterranean oil, but without pollution.

Pyrolysis is the decomposing of biomass (fresh or fossil) by the heat of anaerobic (reduced air) combustion which converts organic material into gases and/or fuel oils.

In this way, Cannabis Biomass is the direct substitute for the fossilised biomass of coal and petroleum. With the hot ‘off-gases’ collected, which cool to condense into liquid fuels, pyrolysis is also known in modern refining as ‘thermochemical decomposition’ or as ‘wood distillation’, or as ‘destructive distillation’.

Methanol has been the official fuel to power the racing cars of the famed Indy 500 Series for the last thirty years. Ridiculously, because of prohibition, it is synthesised by costly energy-consuming industrial procedures from subterranean oil, instead of from cost-free by-products of cannabis.

To recapitulate, the free fibres and free cellulose-rich wood-hurd bulk residues, flowertops and foliage, yield economical (cheap) cannabis products which include the illimitable fuel and energy, all types of plastic products, fine-grade yarn and Dresden Cotton ®, textiles, paper, cardboard, newsprint, man-made fibres (by cellulosic polymerisation, e.g. nylon), medication, lightweight building materials (Isochanvre ®) etc.

"Industrial hemp," which is the ‘THC-free’ ruderalis and related hybrids, is licensed in some countries and comprises a puny species, low in yield of seed, fibre, and not more than 50-60 per cent (including roots) of the biomass bulk of the real cannabis sativa.

This so-called "industrial hemp" is hopelessly inadequate for the industrial uses for which it purports to be licensed. The word "industrial" applied to this weak, measly plant, is a misnomer deliberately employed to mislead farmers (and others) into thinking it could be sufficiently productive for industrial purposes.

The ‘THC-free’ "industrial hemp" will not go far to replace oil, coal, and uranium for fuel-energy; nor provide the food staple needed by the starving millions; let alone stopping the use of trees for paper, resourcing the lightweight building material, Isochanvre ®, the modern furniture materials, and replacing oil for plastics and man-made fibres, and so on.
If this phony "industrial" hemp ever gets fully legalised it will be a foregone failure -- and that is exactly what the government-corporate vested interests intend.

By contrast, Cannabis Sativa Hemp is the full-blooded relaxant plant. It grows prolifically up to and over 15 feet (c. 5 meters), and has the relaxant and health-promoting properties. Yet, approximately half the weight of the large female plant at maturity is comprised of seed, rich in the amino acids requisite for the correct functioning of the human immune system.

NET ZERO-EMISSION CANNABIS.

Combustion of Cannabis-Methanol, CH3OH, emits only water H2O (as steam) and carbon dioxide CO2. Regarding CO2 emission, on combustion, the carbon bonds with oxygen: CO2 is released into the atmosphere; but, an equivalent quantity of carbon is absorbed by the next fuel-crop in cultivation. This is termed a ‘closed-cycle’ to signify no net increase of atmospheric CO2 is produced by the use of cannabis for fuels. Similarly, the cannabis crop itself has been formed by photosynthesis, subtracting from carbon already in the atmosphere.

Misuse of uranium and the finite, diminishing quantity of astronomically-priced fossils as ‘fuel’, benefits only the government-corporate Owners of these poisoning underground minerals; absolutely nobody else…

MACROECONOMICS:
ULTERIOR MONEY-MOTIVE.
The Cannabis Biomass Energy Equation shows readers of THE REPORT (with instructions and diagrams) how Cannabis-Methanol is easily made at home or anywhere for free in a simple cast-iron oven, RELEGALISATION achieving the Universal Re-Democratisation of Fuel-Energy Production (URFEP). This yields to domestic, small-scale and localised private enterprises, the profits which currently accrue undeservedly to giant corporations and oil-producing countries’ governments.

The CBEE proffers free and duty-free fuel everywhere; it makes the outrageous duties and taxes on fuel uncollectable; and it eliminates the unwarranted government-corporate monopolistic stranglehold on fuel-energy supply.

The well-supported CBEE © is not available in any other author’s work.

The unnatural political intervention in the cost of fuel-energy is counter-productive, causing a crushing disincentive to the world’s production of wealth, food and material goods. It produces poor people everywhere, poverty and famine on the world scale. Moreover, politicians compound their traitorous, judicable inhumanity with abject corruption and ulterior crime:
Susceptible, manipulated and overwhelmed by their venality, and intensely driven by the desire to retain the hegemony which derives from monopoly and control over fuel-energy supply, government-corporate vested interests of all political persuasions install the fraudulent Prohibition of the world’s most prolific and economical fuel-energy resource: cannabis sativa.

Not only the U.S., Britain, India, Japan and the industrialised world, but also the other peoples of Asia, Africa and South America should take special note:

THE REPORT's legal studies and exposition, together with the Economics of The CBEE and its associated political and social facts, amount to a philosophy and a unique solution: The RESTORATION Program. Adoption of this Program proffers a beneficent transformation to mankind's socio-political modus vivendi, and to the global economy. It enables an exponential amelioration of the entire world population’s Standard of Living, while simultaneously eradicating poverty and famine.

THE REPORT quotes legal grounds (national and international) which demonstrate numerous infractions of laws by the prohibition legislation, and which show all acts of its enforcement to be crime per se. All citizens persecuted thereunder are due Amnesty and Restitution (as for other Wrongful Penalisation).

With modern technical and scientific evidence, collated from the esoteric Findings of Fact and Conclusions of the empirical studies conducted by world-respected academic and research institutions, presented in consideration of existing laws, national and international, THE REPORT ISBN 9781902848204 constitutes the formal public indictment of Western (and other) governments: i.e. the money-motivated prohibitionists who have framed and maintain legislation which is demonstrated by THE REPORT to be unfounded, crime-producing, inequitable, venal, and perjurious.

Incidentally, by RELEGALISATION each continent is capable of producing surplus cannabis-fuel for all energy needs, which eliminates transport by ocean-going oil-tankers, rendering their related environmental disasters a thing of the past. By their Prohibition, politicians are directly accountable for all the repeated ecological catastrophes.

Implementation of The RESTORATION Program delineated in THE REPORT will radically ameliorate the entire world population's quality of life.
