Longterm Initiatives

Lipid Nanoparticles

Non-psychoactive CBD lipid nanoparticles and the body’s endocannabinoid system could potentially unlock the Blood-Brain-Barrier (BBB) condudrum

Potential to treat the most debilitating central-nervous system diseases (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Strokes, Multiple Sclerosis, and Epilepsy)

Total annual cost to society: $800 Billion in US

Cellulose Nanocrystals

Hemp is advancing the field of nanotechnology through cellulose nanocrystals and can one day be used to replace plastics with zero toxicity to humans and the environment

Total annual cost to society of plastic pollution in oceans: $2.5 Trillion globally  

Regenerative Agriculture & Carbon Sequestration

Due to hemp’s deep root system, it is one of the most effective plants at sequestering carbon and implementing regenerative agriculture

Hemp captures anywhere between 8-15 tonnes of carbon per hectare whereas the average forest can only capture between 2-6 tonnes per hectare

Carbon stored by just the top 30-40 cm of soil could offset the increase in annual carbon output

Total annual cost related to hydrocarbon pollution: $820 Billion globally
