Researchers have estimated that eight million tons of trash — much of it non-biodegradable plastic — is dumped in the world’s oceans every year, with up to 245,000 tons of trash currently floating in our oceans.

To put that into perspective, the Willis Tower (former Sears Tower) in Chicago weighs just over 222,000 tons.

Deforestation is one of the main environmental problems we’re facing today. About 14% of all global wood harvest is used to make paper, and 93% of paper and cardboard comes from trees. Every tree produces enough oxygen for three people to breathe.

Is there a solution to lowering these statistics? Of course. Cultivating industrial hemp will help to alleviate these problems by providing safe, clean, renewable and sustainable materials with application in many industries, including food and beverages, nutraceuticals, textiles, construction materials, plastics, automotive, paper, and many others.

CBD oil has been studied for its potential role in treating many common health issues, including anxiety, depression, acne, and heart disease. For those with cancer, it may even provide a natural alternative for pain and symptom relief. In March of 2019, CVS Pharmacy announced that it will begin selling hemp-derived CBD products in eight states. The national drug store chain will be marketing the topical cannabidiol products, such as creams, sprays, and roll-ons, as “an alternative source of relief,” CVS said.
