Many Alberta farmers have taken to hemp to round out their crops and some say they’re making a tidy profit.

According to a recent study done by Alberta Agriculture, farmers in the province seeded the most hemp in all of Canada at 6,434 hectares last year.

The preliminary estimate for this year is 8,000 hectares ( thats over 80,000 Tonnes of CO2 removed)

That is the way to go. Help the Farmers and protect our environment once and for all.
We will introduce Hemp not only for Food, Clothings but in building construction for
both Structural Walls, Insulations and Sound Barriers.

All over the world including here in Canada needs to help the farmers to help us feed our
people . That is why we have hunger and poverty.
