Hemp and Marijuana have the potential to save the economy. And this is not an impossible dream of hippies – cloth is the key to a sustainable and abundant economy. This plant can revolutionize industry by industry: It can be used as fuel, in construction, as a cosmetic, food, tissue, paper and plastic. Some say that there are more than 25,000 products that can be made with hemp. But most likely there are many more.

Hemp Is An Economic Treasure Waiting To Be Used

Hemp is a resistant and easy to grow the crop, which is closely related to Marijuana, the difference is in its THC level. In the same way that recreational and medicinal strains are developed to obtain a maximum of THC, hemp is grown to get a minimum of THC and a maximum of fiber. Botanically, a material is a member of the Marijuana Sativa family, as can recreational Marijuana. They can be considered as different strains of the same plant.

Environmental And Sustainable

Hemp has the almost unlimited potential of being a versatile and sustainable resource. It can grow in virtually all non-extreme climates, thrives on practically any type of soil, has a natural resistance to pests, can displace weeds, and is believed to even improve soil quality by eliminating toxins (including nuclear toxins). The whole plant, from its seed to the stem, can be used in industrial applications, and it is much more environmental and sustainable than many of the current methods we use and can replace.

Hemp Industry

In 2012, it was estimated that the value of the hemp industry was 500 million dollars in annual retail sales, only in the US.

Imagine the potential it could have to create jobs and grow as an industry if it were not slowing down. It could create thousands of jobs, produce new products and make our lifestyle much more sustainable – benefits to the economy, to our knowledge.

Hemp As A Food Source Is One Of The Fastest Growing Uses.

To give you an idea of the power of hemp, R. Lee Hamilton, a famous biochemist, has described hemp as the potential cure for hunger in the world, and says that “its absurd prohibition [in the US]” is a parody against humanity and the most valuable plant in the world. This seems to be the story for all applications of hemp – it is entirely undervalued. It is a very viable alternative to oil; it can be used to build green and negative carbon houses, it can produce biodegradable, resistant and durable plastic, it provides high quality and sustainable fabrics, and even has medical and cosmetic uses. It seems that there are very few aspects of life that could not be improved with its use.

A perfect example of this is the automotive industry. It is known that Henry Ford, the founder of Ford cars, made a car whose frame was made entirely of hemp plastic. Fortunately, this concept has been retaken, and virtually all major automakers are beginning to include hemp-based compounds in their latest car models.

Hemp can not only save the economy, but it can also alter the environmental impact of the planet appreciably. It is not just a practical crop; it is also environmentally sustainable. Hemp takes large amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere to grow, which makes it not only carbon neutral but also harmful. When combined with the fact that it becomes in just four months and is one of the crops with the highest biomass on the planet, it means that large amounts of carbon can be fixed and converted into oxygen – eliminating it from the atmosphere. Even when processing its fiber into products – like a house built with hemp concrete – carbon remains fixed.

Hemp also benefits the environment regarding the rural way of growing it. Thanks to their ability to kill invasive weeds and resist pests naturally, farmers can grow hemp organically with minimal difficulty – no pesticides or herbicides are needed to produce healthy. There is also the fact that it can balance and restore soil nutrients while eliminating toxins and chemicals, which makes it an ideal crop to rotate with others – reconditioning the soil each time.


Although hemp can be grown legally in most of Europe, it is a crop that occupies a tiny part of the agricultural market – especially when compared to its historical levels. It was around the time of the discovery of the New World when the cultivation of hemp took off, and in many places in America, it became a requirement for farmers. Although it is currently illegal in the US before the ban, it was recognized that cars could run on hemp fuel and that the global supply of paper could be created from it.

You may wonder: if it is legal in Europe, why is it not produced anymore? Well, it’s ridiculous, but one of the reasons is its perception. Hemp is seen as too close to marijuana, and many people do not know the difference. It generates an air of criminality and aversion among people who do not know much about the subject. This means that politicians do not want their name to be related to it, nor support the changes that would favor their cultivation, nor the industry that can develop around them.

This brings us to the next point: Hemp is rarely subsidized as it is with other crops. Result: Its price is high, too high, to be economically as viable as other resources.

Under the traditional grant model, governments offer incentives to farmers to grow certain crops they believe are necessary. For the farmer, it is a simple decision what to build – a plant that the government wants, favors and for which it pays. Hemp, on the other hand, can be difficult to sell at a reasonable price. Hemp has the loss of almost all the time.

Hemp has a massive potential to produce sustainable resources, but what about Marijuana? Through legalization, regulation and medical and recreational marijuana taxes, a significant amount of money can be pumped into the legal economy. It is an example of economic growth that can currently be seen in the state of Colorado, where the sale and recreational use of marijuana should be legalized. Creates work in abundance, from positions directly involved in its production and sale to administration, supply, manual labor, and even transportation throughout the state.

Marijuana grows by leaps and bounds

Recently, the  Department of Revenue figures published Nevada marijuana sales in July, when it became legal on recreational Marijuana in the state. According to the statistics compiled by  Marijuana Business Daily, the  business is skyrocketing:

Sales of marijuana in Nevada, in essence, doubled compared to those of other states, reaching the figure of US $ 27 million in sales. It must be taken into account that this figure materialized despite the severe scarcity problems faced by the state due to difficulties with distribution rules.

And these numbers probably underestimate the long-term marijuana market that exists there.

Even more revealing is the fact that Nevada achieved spectacular sales in its first month of legality with only 53 stores selling recreational marijuana.

This is less than any other state, except Washington.

Tremendous achievement!

According to the owner of a “green” shop interviewed by Marijuana Business Daily, sellers are enjoying growth between the 2% and 5% per month. That is an impressive annual growth – and a good omen for any Nevadan company.

Now, because marijuana is still illegal at the federal level, it cannot be transported from one state to another. That means that authorized farming operations within the country are the only ones that can be sold within their respective jurisdictions. That’s why the growing Nevada market is so promising for the companies that operate there.

These are exciting times for the Marijuana industry. As I have said many times: we have a front row seat to witness all the action – and the open the door to become part of all the profits that are offered there.

While all that is going on, I tell you that in a few days I will be traveling to Las Vegas to meet with the companies that are exposed to this market, and inquire about many more details.
