Where do we grow all this Cannabis? Part ‘B’
We suspect that Cannabis could reduce our dependence on “Big Oil“, with just one use. Some call it a wasteful use, as there is information out there that claims a ton of dry biomass is burned to produce about 80 US Gallons of Gasoline type fuel and a pile of charcoal is produced referring to Cannabis Fuel. The charcoal for that purpose is 100% useful as fertilizing material for new plants. They could also use it in heating to replace coal use, being very similar but being wasteful and not worth thinking about. Same as for capacitor use where Carbon Graphite (from the remains of burned Cannabis fibre) rods makes the components of that device. However, that is not how hemp biofuel is made, that thinking is archaic and reminiscent of a Refer Madness infection. Any vegetation could be our Biomass, but in this example, our Biomass is Cannabis DBA Hemp. The pluses outweigh the negatives as far as I can see, just the seeds are used with the oils squeezed out. This produces a ‘cold-pressed seed cake’. This Seed Cake is entirely editable, it’s sold as domestic animal feed but it is edible for us as well. The fuel itself is non-toxic and can be consumed, but is said to be unpleasant in taste. Alcohol is stronger and less toxic than rubbing alcohol. A spill would be good for the environment, fertilizing soils, leading to the next part where Cannabis will help.
The Forest Industry
It could replace the need to rape the forests industrially as another use. Today, industry replants pure stands of Pine and Spruce trees after clearcutting, creating firestorms that grow humongous and endanger communities. It eradicated deciduous trees and shrubs with prejudiced practices done by industry that threaten natural forests. Feral animals are nature’s tools, the shrubs are berries and other seed-bearing plants planted by nature in the circle of life. Nature is out of balance. Any non conifer plant growing near a ‘treated pure stand’ is growing in pesticide residue, is usually deformed and is toxic to life. It struggles to exist in a pure stand. We do need big industry to step out of the forests for at least one generation of humans. But… We use forests for recreation, we use forests for employment. We use the resources the forest produces in construction, paper products, school projects, hygiene (toothpicks) and way more, even in some very wasteful ways, like toilet paper. With Cannabis: Hempcrete, Hemp Lumber, Hemp Paper, Hemp Toilet Paper, napkins and more paper products, no toxic chemicals needed. Everything wood can be replaced by a Hemp product. In fact, all that can be safely tossed when its useful life ends. It returns to the soil a lot faster than wood. Most won’t have been preserved in toxic chemicals. Every product employs an army in a sustainable workforce, from seed to consumer. There is much more it can do, I could describe Plastic and Food, The problems with Batteries and a Capacitor, which is all it can be at present, but I won’t in this post. I hope it inspired you to do some research and expand your ‘Weeducation‘. It isn’t always learned in the first puff. The Industrial end of things is a whole other class in the school of Weeducation Thank you for following so far. Hope you’ve been paying attention. Keep reading for Cannabis Potential part 3-c, it needs not cut into agricultural land, well fertile soils overall excluding ferial… Subscribe if you haven’t yet. Next week that post will be uploaded.
