I would not try to make hempcrete yourself though. I would recommend buying it from someone who knows what they’re doing. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp wavess 0 Questions 111 Answers 0 Best Answers 242 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 Login to 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 major projects and that is why it is less reliable. Also, hempcrete is sticky and thicker than normal cement, which makes it difficult to be used as a walling material in order to construct a wall. But, it does offer good amount of strength also. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Melody 0 Questions 59 Answers 0 Best Answers 120 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 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Abigail 2 Questions 43 Answers 0 Best Answers 86 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 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 totally made from hemp hurds. Hurds are tough parts of hemp that stick to the fiber after it is separated. This produce is utilized to make environmental friendly furniture, walls, counter tops and shelving. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp RainDanceMaggie01 0 Questions 14 Answers 0 Best Answers 42 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. Its like a concrete but made with hemp instead. It supposed to be lighter and easier to use then concrete. I have also heard that its water and fire proof and great for homes to use if you can find it. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
