Hi If anyone is interested hemps uses in construction or planning growing hemp for fiber and hurd/shiv I welcome you getting in touch. On occasions I have looked into discussions on this forum, but my primary interest in hemp is using it for construction purposes so I have not participated as I know very little about the varieties of hemp grown for their cannabinoid content, nor do I know anything about extracting the cannabinoids from the plant. My focus for several years now has been hemp in construction. I am based in DuPage County and one of the founder members of the US Hemp Builders Association (USHBA), more recently I have taken on the task of being the area lead for USHBA and in the not to distant future hope to develop an Illinois Chapter of USHBA. I have some past experience of working with hemp and lime construction and over the past ten years have undertaken post graduate courses and study in various methods of sustainable construction including utilizing hemp and lime etc. Please message me if you wish to know more.
