Please feel free to share this information, this is the real deal and it’s happening now.
Joseph Hart is here on our islands to establish a seed farm to supply growers on the mainland and provide material for oil, animal feedstock, waste treatment and bioremediation here in Hawaii.
This plant has always been legal – exempted from the 1930 narcotics act because US government and military needed it. Today there are huge industrial clients for this product in the oil industry and it is used very successfully for cleaning up chemical and oil spills. For commercial production of seed for oil, this plant gets 7000 pounds per acre whereas cannabis yields only 3000 pounds per acre.
The Hardy Plant gross 30 feet in six months and goes through its full cycle at this 22° latitude.
This is why Joseph is here looking for land on Kauai to establish a seed farm. The previous location of the seed farm was in New Mexico but the drug cartels of made it impossible to continue to operate there. Joseph attended Mississippi State University and earned his degrees in agriculture and ‘Lien systems’ and has built the production lines which milled the material and his company has a diverse product line and a huge inventory of products for all uses of hemp.
“Indian Hemp” is the true paper of the Constitution. It is what the Chinese are growing and use for all of their government printing in China. Interesting to note, US dollar currency is now being printed in China (why not produce it close to where it ends up I guess must be the thinking). I learned from Joseph that he yesterday received his report from the Hawaii Invasive Species Control Board giving Indian Hemp a greenlight and clean bill of health for being cultivated safely in Hawaii.
Please let anyone know that they can contact me and I will help them get any questions answered they may have about this cultivar and the role it may play in Hawaii’s agricultural future.
Same species, different animal.
I recently sat down with Hawaii Senator Mike Gabbard, Hawaii Representative Cynthia Thielen and Kelly King, Vice President of Pacific Biodiesel to interview them about their views on the upcoming legislation on hemp. You can see it here: www.HempInternet.com
My dear friend Denise Key of iHempHI.com who is a grand activist for the legalization of industrial hemp and who initiated and facilitated these interviews said that today that some opposition to the growing of industrial hemp remained, evidently based on distortions. So I send a few emails to my friends to help them tell the Chihuahuas from the Timberwolves:
WHY YOU CAN’T CONTROL IT
“[T]hey (DEA) cannot regulate naturally-occurring THC not contained within or derived from marijuana-i.e. non-psychoactive hemp is not included in Schedule I. The DEA has no authority to regulate drugs that are not scheduled, and it has not followed procedures required to schedule a substance. The DEA’s definition of “THC” contravenes the unambiguously expressed intent of Congress in the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) and cannot be upheld” The PDF from the Court is also attached. Here is the DEA press release that the quotes in the second page of Keith Kamita’s testimony came from: http://www.justice.gov/dea/pubs/pressrel/pr100901.html
WHY YOU CAN’T GET HIGH FROM IT
There is an inexpensive hemp breeder‘s ﬁeld test that is able to quickly and inexpensively distinguish between the different varieties of cannabis by their THC levels. The “DG Test” for THC was developed by the late Peter Dragla in Canada. It is similar to the development of a method to test individual hemp plants for C8l’l|’l8biI10id presence or absence in the ﬁeld done in the Ukraine.
