“Hemp does a lot of things for fiber, and it makes parachutes, rope, it makes hemp creed and hemp board. It makes almost a fire-resistant house.”
Wyoming you have to love the tree because they are nonexistent, but you have to make paper out of something, here’s your paper plates and straws. Hemp makes paper cups, and here’s your paper towels and toilet paper, all of it.
With the legalization of Hemp growing in Wyoming, the question remains can the hemp tree flourish and grow on in the Wyoming soil. Tim Anderson and Green Tree AG are looking to put that theory to the test.
