Hempcrete is a hemp-lime mix that creates breathable, highly insulated and durable walls. The plant and mineral based material is naturally flame retardant and anti-microbial, eliminating the need for any added toxic chemicals. Hempcrete walls continuously absorb odors, toxics, and carbon dioxide from the air making the indoor air cleaner than the air in buildings made from typical petrochemical based building materials. In 2018, the US Farm Bill removed hemp from the Controlled Substances Act and deemed hemp an agricultural commodity, no longer mistaken as a controlled substance.
