To begin with, Hemp can absorb 4x more CO2 than trees. Although air pollution can be diminished by car pulling, planting more trees and reducing deforestation; using hemp to minimize air pollution can be very favorable. The convenience of the Hemp plant is; more rapid CO2 absorption, improved soil structure, and no other chemical inputs. Hemp can be grown in already existing agricultural land, it can be a part of a farm’s crop rotation, it can grow in a diversity of soil conditions and climates. All other crops can’t grow this easy nor help as profoundly. Growing Hemp causes very low environmental impact. For instance, Hemp uses low fertilizer, reduced agrochemical residues, replaces unsustainable raw materials, reduce use of trees, replace all tree made products and oil-based products/materials. In addition, Hemp has sturdy and more versatile fibers than cotton, its CO2 intake is greater (The Science 1). Hemp is primarily made up of Cellulose, Hemicellulose and Lignin and it’s chemical structure is carbon content which is the absorbed CO2 (The Science 2). The outcomes of using Hemp are increased CO2 absorption, decreased deforestation, replacement of raw / oil based unsustainable construction materials, replacement of cotton (overall decrease or air pollution/ negative environmental impacts). This is the preeminent solution because it can replace so many products produced overall and for the better. Hemp can be grown in already existing agricultural land, be a part of…
