The World’s First Plane Made and Powered by Hemp

Canadian cannabis company Hempearth Group is getting high with hemp.

The company has put into motion the plans to build the world’s first plane made from and powered by hemp. The plane has even been designed to run on HEMPEARTH Hemp Jet A Bio Fuel. The wings, seats, plane walls and pillows are all set to be manufactured from hemp.

The world’s first hemp plane will be able to fly four passengers by a single pilot. The plane will have a 36 ft wingspan.

A Plane Made From Hemp?! What?

Did you know that hemp is pound for pound stronger than steel? Hemp can hold almost twice the weight as steel before it cracks and breaks and can bend almost six times as much. Perfect for airplanes.

According to Hempearth, “…traditional aerospace materials are heavier than hemp and toxic and not sustainable. Most manufacturers use aluminum and fiberglass to built planes. Hemp is significantly lighter and therefore requires a lot less fuel to get up in the sky.”

And as we all know, hemp is an environmentally friendly material, as it is drought-tolerant which means it uses a lot less water than cotton to grow. Through a process called ‘bioremediation’, the plant also rejuvenates the land by adding nutrients back into the soil. The environmental impact is far less in comparison to mining metals for planes.

The Designers

Canadian based Hempearth Group and a Florida company, Velocity, Inc., are set to manufacture the plane. Hempearth Group is also finishing up some new hemp materials in Montreal that will replace all fiberglass in aviation and many other industries. The company turned down Dupont and promise they will never sign or work with fascist companies that are associated with the military, The Rockefellers, The Rothchilds and/or the Military-Industrial Complex.

From Hempearth Founder Derek Kesek: “This is the kind of future we all want here on Earth.”

He knows hemp’s uses are endless and that hemp can provide an environmentally friendly and more efficient way to travel.

And for all you aviation buffs, when the first Hemp Plane is completed it’s inaugural flight will be at The Wright Brother’s Memorial, in Kitty Hawk North Carolina, where Wilbur and Orville first flew in their self-propelled “Wright Flyer”.

The time to get high with hemp is coming soon.
