some wild seed, wildseed is what we need.
when understanding the practical compatibility of hemp as an energy source, it is important to understand the reality of the seed. the wildseed, the natural seed produced by nature is vital to the efficient use and productivity of hemp as an alternative energy, whether it is for fuel, food, shelter, paper, cloth, or medicine.
currently accepted industrial hemp standards are set at 0.3 % thc content, which is a genetically engineered standard that lowers and limits the productivity of hemp as an energy source. wildseed hemp has about 3% thc content which produces much
more seed and fibers for production. as a plant it also is helpful to producing more healthy oxygen for the air quality.
the potential of hemp in any and all uses is in the quality of the seed

Title: Hemp makes 5 tons of fiber and 4 tons of seed oil and protein per acre
Cannabis hemp, or cannabis sativa, also known as marijuana, is the most
productive plant source for plant fiber, protein and oil. All archeologists
agree that hemp was among the first crops cultivated by our ancestors over
10,000 years ago, and may be the first crop purposely sown.
Hemp seeds produce more oil and protein than any other plant per land area
cultivated. Hemp protein and oil are rich in the essential fatty acids (EFAs)
that our brain and cardiovascular system need, Omega 3, 6 & 9, in the perfect
ratio for optimal human health. Hemp protein has all 8 amino acids, again, in
just the right balance to meet humans’ nutritional needs.
According to a study published in the Notre Dame University journal, The
American Midland Naturalist, wild hemp here in the USA produces
8,500 pounds of seed per acre. This study of feral hemp is titled, An
Ecological Study of Naturalized Hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) in East-Central
Illinois, by Alan Haney and Benjamin B. Kutscheid from the University of
Indiana at Urbana, Department of Biology.
Cold pressing of hemp seeds yields over 300 gallons of oil and 6,000 pounds of
high protein hemp meal. That is 6 barrels of oil produced per acre, which is
extremely healthy while fresh, and 3 tons of high protein food per acre. This
oil production rate is three times more productive than the next most
productive seed oil crops: soybeans, sunflower seeds and canola/rapeseed, which
produce 100 to 115 gallons of oil per acre. Hemp seed oil will be the most
productive source of biodiesel fuel when legalized, and it is also a nontoxic
resource for plastics and many other synthesized products.
Per acre, hemp is the most productive fiber on earth, making 10 tons of bast
fiber, for canvas, rope, lace and linen, and 25 tons of hurd fiber, for paper
and building materials. Hemp stalks produce two types of fiber, the bast fiber,
or the outer bark, and the hurd fiber, or the inner woody core of the stalk.
The US Department of Agriculture’s own Bulletin No. 404 said that the waste
product from making canvas, rope and linen from cannabis hemp bast fiber, this
waste product, the hurd fiber, is more than 4 times more productive than trees
for fiber production for paper and building materials. The USDA produced a
movie during WWII called “Hemp for Victory” that promoted hemp farming for the
war effort, and it is available online for free on YouTube and http://www.hemp.org …
Low THC hemp allowed in Europe and Canada only makes 600 to 1200 pounds of seed
per acre, a small fraction of what hemp is capable of producing. The THC-levels
in this hybrid strain of hemp is so low due to breeding out the flowers, and
that breeds out the seeds, oil and protein too. This ultra-low THC hemp is a
patented variety and it is a unstable cultivar and its offspring naturally
revert to a higher level of THC with more flowering sites, so farmers must
continually purchase the patented seed from France.
The flowers make a medicine that helps fight cancer, multiple sclerosis,
neuro-degenerative disease, gastro-intestinal disorders, relieves chronic pain,
helps glaucoma, seizures and spasms, and restores homeostasis. Marijuana
increases longevity. The flowers make human brain neurotransmitters that make
people laugh and relieve depression, post traumatic stress and anxiety.
The prohibition of hemp is not about drugs, it is about money, power and the
continued centralization of economic and political control. This is a conspiracy
from the oligarchy to keep the wealth in their hands. Petroleum products are
capital intensive and, therefore, centralized, while hemp fiber, protein and oil
production are relatively inexpensive and, therefore, naturally decentralized.
You can buy 10 hemp seed presses for the price of one small car. It takes over
$1 billion to build an oil refinery, and these are incredibly toxic. Wild hemp
produces 15 times more seeds, oil and protein than the low-THC patented French
Hemp, when returned to agricultural production, will create thousands of jobs
and return economic control to the people. There will be no more wars for
petroleum when we use hemp for energy instead. Hemp can lead the way to
economic and ecological sustainability, and help save the remnants of our
biosphere’s precious heritage, the diversity of life that we should bequeath to
the seventh generation and beyond.
