Ever heard of a car constructed using hemp ? Almost stranger than fiction !
Yes , but its true. Henry Ford was truly a visionary ahead of his time. While the order of the day back in the 1940's was steel motor vehicles and fossil fuels , Henry Ford was envisioning a vehicle constructed largely of agricultural fiber and run on bio fuel.
In 1941 Ford commissioned and built a vehicle made of 70% cellulose , including wheat straw , sisal and of course HEMP FIBER , mixed with resin. Steel was used mainly for the frame. In addition , the car could run entirely on HEMP FUEL. Henry Ford's love for nature and farmers no doubt inspired this invention. The car was 300 pounds lighter than steel , AND 10 X STRONGER THAN STEEL. The strength no doubt came from the HEMP FIBER.
To prove the strength of the plastic composite , a man swung an axe repeatedly at the vehicle. It just bounced off and could not dent the body. In contrast when he swung the axe at a steel body , it pierced right through , expectedly.
Hemp produces one of the strongest and longest natural fibers found in nature. and has been used for thousands of years by ancient peoples for rope and cloth , ritual practices , paper , food , animal feed , and medicines. CBD is the NON-INTOXICATING molecular compound extracted from industrial HEMP , and has and is being used for the alleviation of over 100 illnesses.
