Good stuff. I'd be interested in growing/distributing/whatever, $ky'$ the limit with all things connected to marijuana, hemp and it's 'medicinal' uses these days.
Yes, hemp has a secondary use that is lucrative, it's the fibers. Used for all kinds of things but the fibers can be used for 'hempcrete' in construction-- that'd be valuable to an extreme.
More on the fiber aspect here:
I remember getting a smoothie in TX in lieu of lunch sometimes called the 'Honey Bear' and it had honey, banana, soy milk, vanilla, and hemp seeds. I asked why hemp seeds and the worker told me 'protein!'. People waited in the sweltering heat to get the smoothies because it had waiting space outside--line wrapped around the block so I figured they were good and they were.
Hemp has about 31 g of protein per 100 g of hemp, and also Vit E, magnesium, calcium, etc. Healthy fats too.
I'm primarily a bee wumin but want to diversify and this is definitely interesting, gonna learn about it this summer.
