I m grateful that Hemp was legalized last week:

Recommended Posts

Hemp is the non psycho tropic cousin to Marijuana.I m grateful itwas legalized because it can produce twice to 6 times more product ,than hay crops.

Hay is the 4th leading farm crop in the country,there s corn ,wheat & soybeans ahead of hay.

The hemp can be blended into silage,with the wheat...corn ,corn stalks cut up,etc.

The seed s of hemp are copius,& used to be made into hempseed oil,that was made into oil base paint.So its a added profit ,just to grow it for that.Cotton seed oil went up when hemp was outlawed...The Hemp fiber is added to cotton to make a stronger,warmer canvas...

 

Tweed is a kind of cloth suit coats are made of,& is cotton maybe 40 % ,hemp 30 %,& wool ,I suppose some polyester can be added in as well...

Out in the S Western areas,they really need to plant it on account of climate change.Its the most drought tolerant crop to raise....That will furnish food for the animals,beef & others.

Plowing hemp into the soil,it ariates,& rots down to green manure,adds nitrogen fertilizer.

Hemp oil is also used for medicinal purposes.. Morgan Freeman swears its the best thing he's found for his fibromyalgia pain.. Its high in the  omega-3 to 6 oils, helps joint pain, insomnia, etc.. I just ordered a 4 oz bottle on eBay for $6.88 to see if it does anything.. I suspect its all hype, but a girl I know said she got her Dad some because he was taking strong opiates for his cancer pain, but after a few drops of hemp oil, his swelling went down and the pain subsided, no more fentanyl .

eReally;I was window shopping a tweed winter sportscoat,& it listed the tweed jackets ingredients.

Ask.com is a search engine we all may use to ask anything...

 

On the other comment about hemp oils medicinal properties,I believe it has medicinal contents.It was part of jesus and moses anointing oil & healing oil.People in the desert need oil on skin as it gets dry ,doesn t it.

The American Indians believe in putting oil on skin, also animal fat. I read as a kid that Indians would save rancid stinky fat like from a bear on ,as  a mosquito repellant in the Everglades Swamps ,too...

The the bible mentions sackcloth ...That's made from hemp,& the poor used it to keep from being naked.The Salvation Army was started off the philosophy to feed the poor & clothe the naked....

Matthew25/& Colonel Booth that begged surplus uniforms from the English Royalty to be worked into clothes for the poor,a good place for Ladies Sewing Circles,not just making blankets to sew....

i need to add,Tarps for covering Semi Trailer loads are sold online/Use search engine like ask.com to find them.

 

My valuable piece of intel with thisis,sewing circles could make 40  ft diameter TeePees ,out of tarps used to cover semi trailer loads like for gravel,wind resistant & tough material tarps...Im thinking 2x4 s ,2 nailed together to make them 16 ft long  with a small piece of wood a ft long, to join them end to end,covering the joined sections, cold be used when poles cant be found,or sapling s/young trees...

To use for the homeless/Im thinking of sending this idea to the Sioux reservation,for another sewing circle idea.

Previously,I said sleeping bags would be a step up from blankets.I use sleeping bags for worn out furniture covers,& instead of blankets on my bed,especially in winter.I just got a new 45 degree rated one last month,& have 2 over 2 sofas in my living room,hung over the backs.2 more comforters over the seat areas on the sofas ;works good...

 

I mentioned Las Vegas had habadasheries/ie,clothing stores to get dressed up,around   

casino areas.& maybe they could make clothes to sell around Indian Casinos/I sent some 4 leaf clovers with my Health & Longlife Resource pages to sell around Indian casinos,& fund sewing machines & a builders co op...

 

I also mentioned German Infantry made sleeping bags with snaps & s;eeves,so they could be worn as coats,when not used as a sleeping bag /as 2 in one survival gear.

I also need to repeat that Hemp is a non getting inebriation cousin to marijuana;& medical marijuana is mostly in the west,& NEast,while I live in the bible belted south where the evangelists/baptists, don t have any medical or otherwise pot in the south....

Just so you know,FEMA quit handing out Mobile homes a couple yrs back.Weekend campers can be searched for in newspaper classified ads.Sometimes trailer parks have used ones up for sale...someone died,or left it for unpaid lot rent...maybe New Mobile Home Sales lots have or know of some for sale.Someone bought a new one,looking to sell the old one,etc.Online ,I was looking at a few singlewides over the past yr.,use search engines,see Ebay,Amazon.

Ive lived in a 12x50 ft for the past 30 yrs.@ yrs ago,I had to replace the furnace,I wanted a electric one.I read articles off the internet,said they try & put one like you had as replacement.

So ,I m back on a heating oil furnace,but its more efficient.Cost like 4500 for a 83000 BTU unit,& could have gone to 7 grand if I had not shopped around.

Last year I put roll roofing on,with about 35 gal of roofing cement/tar for glue.20 yr limited warranty on roll roofing/It all needs maintaining...

California wildfires,record disaster yr last yr,hurricane season at height at the end of this month.I saw a article about Oakland CA saying they were putting mfg singlewides & campers in warehouses,for savings on living expenses.

I told the Red Cross they needed to convert shipping containers into singlewides,add electric,plumbing,doors windows,insulation,just like regular singlewides & 2 together for doublewides.ThaT MAKES SOME JOBS...

Yesterday,I asked at Ask.com,what the status was on hemp legalization.They said it passed last Thursday by a wide margin,so though my post was a bit premature,it turned out to be legalized.

 

I live about 5 miles to the S Carolina State line,they have had legal hemp a couple years, as has Virginia on the N Carolina Northern State line...
