Imagine an affordable home that will not burn or grow mould, while it also cleans the air within. Christiana Goodvin, a self-described “Envelop and Building Science Engineer”, gathers locally sourced materials to build fire resistant homes that interact with the environments we live in. She uses hempcrete. Her hydrothermal designs will manage the indoor humidity, inhibit the transmission of bacteria, viruses, and fungi all at comparable prices to the construction costs of a conventional home. Kirk and Trevor marvel at how one small business uses cannabis to make our world a better place.
Kirk goes for a snowmobile ride and ends up in Gilbert Plains. He drops in on Hemp Sense and Lyall Bates graciously gives him an interview. Learn how Hemp Sense technology is on the cutting edge of getting CBD's out of industrial hemp. And this isn't from a well controlled green house. This is industrial hemp from an open field. And it is harder than you'd think. If you don't immediately get the hemp buds off the field and start drying and curing them in a couple hours, all the CBD is destroyed by composting. Hemp Derived CBD is all the rage. Come listen to an expert on how to get it off the field.
What's the difference between hemp and marijuana? What's up with all these "hemp derived CBD's"? Kirk and Trevor talk to hemp pioneer Martin Moravcik, and hemp farmers Don Dewar and Chris Federowich. Martin has been a hemp promoter since the early 1990's. Chris and Don grow hemp on a large scale today and Chris is the Vice-Chair of Parkland Industrial Hemp Growers. Hemp can provide fiber for textiles, food and maybe medicine. There is a lot of interest in getting CBD's from hemp, but it isn't as easy as you would think to scale up to a farm sized plot of hemp. Clare McBride, also a farmer, works at the office of the Parkland Industrial Hemp Growers. She updates us on the latest hemp regulations including what types of plants Health Canada will allow. Kirk likes to say he goes for bike rides south of Dauphin just to smell the hemp fields. Come jump on your bike for a warm summer evening ride. You are passing acres and acres of tall green plants as Kirk and Trevor chat in your ear...
