UK hemp farmer says hemp will help agriculture and lower carbon usage in the UK!!



HCM visited Jamie on his 240-acre hemp farm in Leicestershire, to discuss everything from the practical and industrial benefits of hemp farming, to how it could drastically improve the environment, carbon footprint, renewable energy and economy in the UK.

Jamie’s farm, that is licensed by the Home Office under the licensing regime for industrial hemp cultivation in the UK, began when he showed interest in hemp for its phytoremedial properties and its ability to absorb heavy metals from contaminated grounds.

He states that the main benefit of hemp is that that it can absorb 25 times the amount of co2 that a forest would. ��In a 120-day growth cycle of the hemp crop, the same size forest would take 25 years to have the same carbon sequestration benefits.

Equally, because its sustainable, he says that hemp is able to break up compacted soil, which increases the follow-on crop yield when used in a responsible crop rotation.

With 1.8 million tonnes of petrochemical plastics being produced this year alone in the U.K., Jamie says that their main focus is to target large carbon usage industrial sectors such as construction and plastics and offer them an alternative natural resource.

His land currently has 240 acres of hemp plants, accounting to one million square metres and around 233 million plants; however, he needs many more farms similar to his across the country to produce enough to make a difference.

Over the next 12 months, Jamie is going to be working hard to construct a primary decortication facility and a primary processing and manufacturing facility.

Additionally, he is working alongside Liverpool John Moor University to focus on a carbon negative modular housing system which aims to use 100% hemp derived materials, bio composites and insulation materials.

  1. I have been showing that THC heals brains so CARBON CAPTURE could be done, so why is the FEDERAL government so against this ?
    STOP CYBER ATTACKING ME 'FED'.
    I have broken NO LAWS but you FEDERAL AGENTS have treated me like a CRIMINAL for over 10 years.
    I wrecked a 2000 Harley wide glide rolling it crushing chest & puncturing lungs killing me.
    Once I woke from my coma and could respond they told me I was getting a phycological test to see if I was 'sane'. They asked if I understood this. I said yes.
    The first question does GOD exist. I answered yes with no hesitation.
    Next question was 'am I GOD. I thought about this long and hard, after a couple minutes I answered; the word GOD is 'man' made for 'control', there is a CREATOR and I am not it.
    End of test.
    GOD returned me for this;
    This has been CYBER ATTACKED for well over 10 years.
    It is what made me focus on how GOLD was formed to PROVE that THC restores brains.
    Why do you think they have been trying for over 10 years and even killed computer systems 2 shut me up ?
    When your RIGHT, YOUR RIGHT — THAT SIMPLE & they FEAR.
    I got muscle cramps in my feet and ankles this morning that it woke me up and could hardly walk. I went to computer room and took one hit of high THC extract and in a minute the cramp left.
    EARTH can be restored so why is CARBON CAPTURE so FEARED? ~ GROW 2 SAVE EARTH.
    Growing HEMP / CANNABIS will restore the 'atmosphere' while rejuvenating the 'soil' while creating FUEL. It will heal humans boosting the ECONOMY saving EARTH.
    FEDERAL FEAR / TERRORISM
    I am being CYBER ATTACKED because of this; – I had FACEBOOK send me INTERNET pages to fill out with my story of how THC saved my brain from OXYGEN DEPRIVATION when I wrecked my H/D with no helmet and died. I had many message me asking if I lived there because it was seen logging on WORLD WIDE.
    GOD please make the FEDERAL agent stop TERRORIZING my WI-FI / COMPUTER at router CenturyLink4347.
    Just what are you FEDERAL agents in KALISPELL MONTANA trying to do ?
    I have been trying to tell the world that THC has been reconnecting my ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM that is healing my 5.5 brain injury. Words means nothing so I give this;
    TRANSITIONAL METALS:
    ZINC = MERCURY
    COPPER = GOLD
    NICKEL = PLATINUM
    There is a very special temper with no 'oxygen' at 3500F for 100 hours that TRANSITIONS. Copper melts at 1800F. ZINC will give off poison fumes.
    I do this to 'prove' that THC has been healing my 5.5 brain injury.
    ~ ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM ~ look it up ~
    There are 'shells' that are around ATOMS that a special 'boil' shatters, creating 50 more atoms. In nature it was QUARTS that melted covering metals absorbing shattered 'shells' that created GARNETS / SAPPHIRES. ~ Quarts is a TRANSITIONAL crystal.
    I ask in JESUS name, amen. – TAX $$$$$ PAID TERRORIST

  2. the full legalization of the hemp plant would benefit the whole uk in so many ways how dare they classify hemp as a "drug" when it contains almost 0 delta-9…funny how its only the leaves and flowers you cant use…but then again how would big pharma profit from the sick if we could all make our own organic CBD products pfft

  3. Why aren't you going no-till? Think about the microbes and fungi! Tilling is the largest contributor to carbon emissions. You want your organic matter staying in the ground and not being turned up to decompose back into the atmosphere.

  4. I'm hoping 2 grow it nxt yr but getting the land that's not by the road is hard & stopping the diary men , corn boy from getting the land framers in ireland just want 2 rent 2 the big framers & not the smaller 1s

  7. Good video. I have just published a couple of videos about hemp farming in Ireland on my channel. It would be great if the uk and Irish governments really invest in this industry

  8. OH THAT COLOUR IS STUNNING, 100 YEARS AGO THIS WAS EVERYWHERE, CANNABIS AND HEMP IS 10 THOUSAND YEARS OLD THERE IS A REASON FOR THAT, ONE OF THE 1ST AGRICULTURE CROPS, KNOWN FOR ITS MEDICINAL VALUES, FOOD CROP, FIBRES, LIST IS NEVER ENDING, LOVE CANNABIS LOVE THE PLANET, CANNABIS IS THE PLANT FROM THE GODS, IT SAVES TOO MANY LIFE'S TOO BE IGNORED ANYMORE, EVEN THE GOVERNMENT REALISE THIS PLANT IS A CASH CROP, FREE THE WEED FOR EVERYONE………….
