Hemp Hurd: An Alternative Building Material With Many Benefits

If you’re looking for an environmentally friendly building material that has many benefits, look no further than hemp hurd! Hemp hurd is the woody core of the hemp plant and it can be used to make a variety of products, including insulation, animal bedding, and even concrete-like building material. 

Hemp hurd is an excellent insulator and it’s also fire resistant. It’s been used in construction for centuries, but only recently have its advantages been rediscovered. 

Hemp hurd is also a great way to sequester carbon. When used in construction, it can help to offset the carbon emitted by the building process. Hempcrete continues to absorb carbon for decades after installation.

Hemp hurd has the additional benefit of being a renewable resource. Hemp grows quickly and requires minimal water, making it a much more eco-friendly option than many traditional building materials. Using hemp hurd in construction can also have positive impacts on local economies, as it can provide a crop for farmers to grow and sell. Overall, using hemp hurd in construction is a win-win situation for both the environment and communities, making it a great choice for anyone looking to build sustainably.

Hemp Acres sells ¾” hurd in 3 cu ft compressed bags which can be purchased individually for smaller projects or by the pallet and truckload for large projects.
