I would not try to make hempcrete yourself though. I would recommend buying it from someone who knows what they’re doing. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp wavess 0 Questions 234 Answers 0 Best Answers 500 Points View Profile wavess 2020-06-26T12:17:09-04:00Added an answer on June 26, 2020 at 12:17 pm Yes, hemp can be used to make walling materials, and can be used alongside regular walling materials. There is very little research done on this combination, however, so unless you are a trained construction worker or engineer, I would proceed with caution. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Katie Halder 0 Questions 18 Answers 0 Best Answers 36 Points View Profile Saikat Halder 2020-06-23T14:42:33-04:00Added an answer on June 23, 2020 at 2:42 pm Hemp can be used with walling material, in the form of hempcrete. However, the use of hempcrete is still skeptical because of the lack of usage and research on it. Not many people have used hempcrete to construct significant projects, and that is why it is less reliable. Also, hempcrete is sticky and thicker than ordinary cement, which makes it difficult to be used as a walling material to construct a wall. But, it does offer the right amount of strength also. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Melody 0 Questions 189 Answers 0 Best Answers 391 Points View Profile Melody 2020-06-22T11:48:22-04:00Added an answer on June 22, 2020 at 11:48 am Hempcrete is more like concrete, not like the drywall (in the photo.) It’s easier to work with and the fibers work as insulation. It’s especially good in wet areas. And no brittleness like concrete means no expansion joints, which is great for a continuous line. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Abe Melbourne, Australia 2 Questions 238 Answers 0 Best Answers 562 Points View Profile Abigail 2020-06-22T10:31:48-04:00Added an answer on June 22, 2020 at 10:31 am Yes, it is used in the construction industry too, and the hemp-based material is called Hempcrete. Hempcrete is used to produce a carbon-negative thermal walling substance. It is a fiberboard, with a medium density that is made from hemp hurds. Hurds are tough parts of hemp that stick to the fiber after it is separated. This product is utilized to make environmentally-friendly furniture, walls, countertops, and shelving. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp RainDanceMaggie01 0 Questions 14 Answers 0 Best Answers 43 Points View Profile RainDanceMaggie01 2020-04-23T18:56:16-04:00Added an answer on April 23, 2020 at 6:56 pm Yes! Its called Hempcrete. It’s like a concrete but made with hemp instead. It supposed to be lighter and easier to use than concrete. I have also heard that its water and fireproof and great for homes to use if you can find it. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login to add an answer.
