Eden Project Eco Hemp Cricket Box 

Hemp Cricket Box

     Some people, like Los Angeles Times staff writer Chris Foster, just can't get past the giggle factor in hemp. In yesterday's Morning Briefing Mr. Foster pokes fun at the new eco-friendly box (athletic cup) made by the Eden Project as an offshoot of their Eco Surfboard project, made from their hemp.

     The BBC News covered the Eco Cricket Box their story "Cricketer tests eco-friendly box" as did the Metro in "One in the eye for the super box." The Metro's story has more and better pictures.

Go Hemp 

Nutiva Berry Pom

     Hemp foods got a mention in the USA Today story "Here's what's on our plates in 2007." Not surprising to me as it is the food to watch in 2007 and Phil Lempert of SupermarketGuru more than agrees.

     Nutiva's Berry Pomegranate HempShake received an 89 in a recent SupermarketGuru New Product Hits & Misses. Rumour has it that Phil Lempert is also going to be on TV sometime next month featuring hemp food products.

Open Directory Project Back Online 


     I went to do a Google search today, but could not find what I was looking for. Up until late October my preferred search engine was the Open Directory Project (ODP). Their search and editing servers had a major crash and lost a lot of data, including all pending directory submissions. They are back. What does this have to do with hemp you ask?

     Well, the Hemp Report has the answer. It is over six years old, but just as relevant today as when it was published. Please read the story by ODP volunteer editor industrialhemp Hemp and the Open Directory Project, learn all about it, and submit your web site. The only thing that I can recommend is to do a hemp search in the ODP to find the best categories to make a submission to. Your hemp related business will be better for it!

Chinese Hemp Acreage 

     Fibre2fashion reports that China cultivates 0.797 million hectares of hemp, which is about 1,968,590 acres, and has a fibre output of about 0.6 million tons.

     The report also states that the five year plan is to increase fibre output to 1.5 million tons, which is equal to 1,992,500 hectares, or 4,921,475 acres. To put that in perspective, that's an area 93% of the size of the U.S. state of Massachusetts.

North Dakota Hemp Farming 

ND Ag Dept

     The North Dakota Department of Agriculture has put up a Hemp Farming page. It looks like a place-holder with a few downloads and links for now. I hope that there are more good things to come.

Kucinich Runs For President Again 

     Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich announced his candidacy for president of the United States yesterday in Cleveland, Ohio. Here is an AP story from earlier today: Kucinich enters '08 race for president

     While many see this as a long-shot bid Congressman Kucinich will bring many issues to the table, including hemp, that would otherwise be ignored.

Note: I was a delegate to the Maine State Democratic Convention representing Congressman Kucinich and I helped edit his hemp issue position piece linked above.

North Dakota preparing to grow industrial hemp 

By James MacPherson, Associated Press Writer
The Associated Press
InForum - Fargo, ND
December 4, 2006

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - David Monson plans on being one of the first in line to apply for a license to grow industrial hemp legally in North Dakota.

Monson is a state representative from Osnabrock and a farmer who watches his Canadian neighbors grow the crop just 25 miles north of his farm. Hemp production has been legal in Canada since 1998, after 60 years of prohibition.

Monson said it's time for North Dakota to cash in on the crop.

"We know it will grow here," Monson said.

North Dakota farmers may start applying for state licenses to grow industrial hemp on Jan. 1, but no seed may be sown until federal drug agents approve, Agriculture Commissioner Roger Johnson says.
