Day by day, there are thousands of applications and technologies being produced using Delta 8 Hemp or CBD. To this date, almost every industry has implemented the use of hemp, despite it being illegal in most countries. Take Amazon or Walmart as examples, they are starting to sell more and more hemp products and technologies compared to the previous years. Most people would probably already know about hemp oils, hemp seeds, hemp flour, but hemp isn’t just used for these common products. In various advanced technologies, here are some of the cool technologies with hemp being used in them:
1. 3D Printing
You must be wondering, how in the world do you use hemp for 3D printing? Hemp is usually converted into filament that is used for 3D printing, instead of the usual plastics made out of petroleum. Hemp filaments are recyclable, biodegradable and free from all kinds of toxins. Hence, hemp materials have a stronger resistance compared to a normal PLA. Any kind of plastic made out of hemp is able to be composted and is 100% biodegradable. It also has better technical characteristics than other materials due to it being odourless
2. Building concrete
Did you know hemp is often used for building materials? Whether you are building any type of home or building, hemp is used in order to create something called hempcrete. Why is hempcrete compared to normal concrete? Hempcrete is usually not toxic and is used for creating soundproof walls. It also offers thermodynamic insulation that reduces the overall cost of energy. Since hempcrete is a natural material, it helps to prevent any kind of health problems while also reducing the possibility of allergies.
3. Water filters
Water filters that are made out of hemp are not only more affordable but also completely safe for your kitchen sink. The Foundation For Industrial Hemp Production & Research is a non-profit organization that regularly produces hemp water filters for the public to consume. Some of the benefits of having hemp water filters are the stability of pH and alkaline, reduce harmful sediments such as rust or lead, absorbs ammonia, natural gas and formaldehyde and prevents the growth of mildew and mould. Usually, hemp water filters will come with an option to choose a monthly subscription in order to get your filter replaced regularly. Not to worry, these hemp water filters can be easily installed in your sink, hassle-free.
4. Oil infuser
The notable company that produces herbal oil infusers would be LĒVO. What they have invented is a device that allows users to infuse their hemp or CBD together with butter, honey, syrup, and many other types of oils. The advantage of having this technology in your hands is how it helps to infuse and create oils made out of natural, healthy herbs along with other ingredients such as fruits by simply clicking a button. The best part of it all, you don’t need to add any additives, emulsifiers or solvents! With a bunch of temperature controls, you can produce any oil easily.
5. DIY Battery
The first-ever battery that was created using hemp was built by Robert Murray-Smith, a Youtuber who was on his way to exploring new, interesting technology while using creative imagination. He managed to create a ‘semi’ elusive Youtube video of him making a battery out of hemp. His Youtube channel consists of many videos on him testing out different hemp batteries while building them. The benefits of hemp batteries are how they are much higher volume and are faster compared to graphene or lithium batteries. Hemp batteries are also cheaper to make. The overall effectiveness of hemp batteries turns out to be more powerful, giving credit to the structure of hemp fibre which helps to conduct better with a high surface area, making it a supercapacitor.
6. Automated indoor grow box
Say goodbye to growing cannabis the natural way. Now, there are automated grow boxes that do everything – from the initial set-up to growing healthy cannabis, you’re not required to do much either and just let the box do its thing. Grobo is one of the automated grows boxes that require simple installation. Simply put in the carbon filter, add your hemp seeds, fill up with the necessary nutrients and you’re good to go.
