However, according to Hemp Global Solutions, each ton of hemp that is grown amounts to 1.63 tons of CO2 absorption. Young trees are estimated to absorb around thirteen pounds of CO2 annually, with mature trees absorbing up to 48 pounds per year. Again, these numbers don’t really compare directly, but it still seems that, all things considered, emissions-wise, hemp is a bit more effective at offsetting. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp CrayM 0 Questions 163 Answers 0 Best Answers 342 Points View Profile CrayM 2020-05-06T13:56:40-04:00Added an answer on May 6, 2020 at 1:56 pm This question is hard to answer since not much research has been on this area besides that they do absorb more CO2 when compared to trees. When compared to trees, hemp grows much faster and can be planted twice a year because of so. In that aspect, they should absorb twice as much as trees but the numbers could be much higher. 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.
