What is Hemp?

Hemp is the fibre of the cannabis plant extracted from the stem. It is versatile and environmentally friendly material. Hemp is used to make rope, clothes, paper, bio-degradable plastic and building materials.

Hemp for building in Australia is becoming increasing popular. Hemp fibers are used as a substitute for fiber-glass because hemp is stronger, lighter, cheaper to produce and biodegradable.
