BUILDING EFFECTIVELY

WITH INDUSTRIAL HEMP

Hemp makes two different kinds of fiber: the fine bast, which is used for paper and fabric, and the woody hurds of the inner stem. The hurds (also known as shives) are strong enough that they can be used in building. Hemp has other properties that make it a good building material.

Hemp’s useful building properties have been recognized for thousands of years. A 6th century bridge abutment in France was recently found to have been made with hemp-filled mortar. More recently, French restorationists developed a hemp-lime mixture to replace wattle and daub when restoring medieval timber-framed buildings. The mortar was an excellent replacement for Portland cement, which didn't "breathe" like the wattle and daub had, thus causing the timber to accumulate moisture.
