Hemp oil was used to fuel many of Henry Ford's early vehicles. He not only ran the car on hemp bio diesel, he also built a much stronger body of the car with hemp fiber composites than is currently made with steel and other metals like aluminum, iron etc..and it's easier on the environment.
You will notice that hemp has the reputation of not only serving the people but also the greater good of the planet and environment
To my knowledge, there is only one known annually, natural, renewable crop that is capable of providing the majority of the world's paper, textile, food and shelter needs; meet all of the world's transportation, industrial and home energy needs, while reducing pollution, rebuilding the soil and cleaning the atmosphere all at the same time.
That substance is the same one that has done it before.....Cannabis Sativa Hemp.
The oil pressed from the hemp seed which is not processed for food is referred to as "Industrial Hemp Seed Oil". This oil has many uses, most often being used as body oil for soaps, lotions, lip balm, and shampoo. But that is only the beginning.
Hemp seed oil has a long history of industrial applications. Hemp was the perfect source for a natural based drying oil. For thousands of years, virtually all good paints and varnishes were made with hemp seed oil.
Hemp seed oil was also widely used as lighting oil, up until the late 19th century. It burns evenly and is even capable of powering a diesel engine. Use hemp seed oil and say goodbye to petroleum! The long chain saturated and unsaturated fatty acids which constitute the oil make an excellent chemical precursor to other industrial compounds.
