Hempearth, the Canadian cannabis firm, has designed the world’s first plane made and powered by hemp – the non-psychoactive member of the cannabis family 10 times stronger than steel. Interestingly, everything from the seats, the wings, the plane walls and even the pillows are made from hemp. The plane, with a wingspan of 36 feet, can hold one pilot and four passengers. What’s more? It runs on 100% hemp oil!
Hemp is lighter than traditional aerospace materials (such as aluminium and fiberglass) and therefore requires a lot less fuel to reach a high altitude. Most importantly, hemp is non-toxic, sustainable, requires way less water and land to grow than cotton, and compared to steel or carbon fibre, has almost no environmental impact.
Hempearth CEO Derek Kesek says:
“This plane project is our first experiment with industrial hemp, and we plan to explore many other uses. Once we establish structural testing and information from this project, we will apply it to other forms of construction. This is the kind of future we all want here on Earth. The sky may not be the limit.”
Hempearth is also developing hemp composites in Montreal, which could replace all fiberglass in aviation and other industries — such as construction. It recently turned down Dupont as they “don’t and never will sign or work with fascist companies that are associated with military, The Rockefellers, The Rothchilds and or the Military Industrial Complex”.
“I build things organically and take it one thing at a time,” Kesek adds. “Richard Branson is my biggest inspiration because he is showing that it’s not business as usual any more: if you want something you go get it.”
When the first hemp plane is completed, its first flight is set to take place at The Wright Brother’s Memorial in Kitty Hawk North Carolina – the birthplace of aviation.
Well done. I am impressed. The plane seats most parts and all organic. Even more regarding company policy to reject Dupont on principles …. I wish you all the best in your future work
Derek is a fraud. Writers are not doing proper research. There’s no plane.. he fakes the photos. Has been doing it for years. Look it up.
Correct. He is just a scammer trying to get people’s donations. Took some promo photos years ago…..and no progress…and I’m pretty sure there never will be. Before he got this idea he was making RSO incorrectly and selling it to patients at a high price, with the plans to get rich from it. This was just his next get rich quick scheme. He will be following another and another and another…and get nowhere.
Why undermine the credibly of this potentially amazing technology by lying and pretending it exists. The planes in the article are not made of hemp. The thing hasn’t yet been built. You’ve made a beautiful potentiality into a snake oil show. Congratulations.
Agreed…Bullshit article…makes me wonder how much truth there is to whats being said here.
Apparently that is all Derek Kesek is capable of doing; LYING.
Did you name her Mary Jane?
Henry Ford made a car out of hemp in 1941, sadly it did not go into production. It was way ahead for its time
Encourage people to call Velocity Aircraft and ask about it.
Thats really interesting. Stronger than steel is always better.
Stronger than steel is also a dubious claim because steels range in strength from about 30,000psi to 350,000psi. The strongest steels are stronger than any titanium alloy, while the weakest steels allow aluminum alloys and titanium alloys to claim, “They’re 10 times stronger than steel by weight.” Given the usual strength range of biofibers (under 100,000psi), that “10 times stronger than steel” is not making a comparison to the best steels.
Henry Ford’s first Model-T was built to run on hemp gasoline and was constructed from hemp. The car that was ‘grown from the soil,’ had hemp plastic panels whose impact strength was 10 times stronger than steel. Source Popular Mechanics, 1941.
Fantastic go on and make all cars and everythings in hampt material and fuel too.
Willie needs a Hemp 1, if he doesn’t already have one. Well, only if the passengers are sealed off from the cockpit… we don’t need pilots zipping about the skies FUI from contact highs!
It’s HEMP you moron not weed! NO THC..you can’t get high.
LMAO ? ?, Willie is a true connoisseur ???
The ‘Hemp’ has no neurological effect..can’t get ‘high’ without the THC.
There are things that arise from the evolution of plants such as hemp, creating a light but strong aircraft, but plants such as algae may be toxic. Make marine animals Change shape Must continue to study
How ‘high’ can it get you?
If its not used to smuggle drugs at least once then somethings wrong with the world.
dude …that is the funniest damned comment ive read in a long time lol lol
this airplane concept was introduced by Burt Rutan,but inverted engines don’t work good.
Unfortunately, Richard Branson is also Cabal. Hopefully you didn’t hook up with him either!
Hemp is also a nitrogen fixing crop. You can allow It to be furrowed back into the ground and it enriches the soil instead of depleting it.
How high does it get?
You all had me. Until you used the word, “fascist” in reference to DuPont and the military. If you want to expand and truly “save the planet” perhaps you need to put away your unfounded bias.
Maybe you should put away yours. You might be able to see where they are coming from.
No dunkherst your wrong
What is the airspeed
Runs on Hemp oil. Very limited on where to fuel up.
Kind of like the van in Chech and Chong’s movie Up In Smoke
The plane shown, manufactured by Florida’s Velocity Aircraft, has no components manufactured with hemp. This whole story is a scam and has been floating around since at least 2012. Anyone pay attention to the article where it says the firm “has designed the world’s first plane”, but then shows a FULLY FUNCTIONING PLANE? smh.
Fascism is a set of ideologies and practices that seeks to place the nation, defined in exclusive biological, cultural, and/or historical terms, above all other sources of loyalty, and to create a mobilized national community.
So, I’m assuming a non fascist is one who wants to give out country away and live under shariah law, or some other regime that will take over in the interim. Yes? Because that’s how I see it. America for Americans is not racist, it protects us. Did you ever hear what they say on flights? If oxygen is needed the masks will come down automatically. PUT IT ON YOURSELF FIRST, SO YOU WILL BE ABLE TO THEN PUT IT ON SOMEONE EKSES FACE AFTER. If you put it on them first, you may perish. And if you perish you cannot help another!
We have to take care of ourselves first, not others first. It is not selfish, it is to protect ourselves so we are there to help others. But if we give all our money away we wont have any to help others with.
According to that headline, this is the world’s first plane, which also happens to be made of hemp.
So the headline says it is 10 times stronger than steel and then I read this: “Once we establish structural testing and information from this project, we will apply it to other forms of construction.” So, how exactly do they know it is 10 times stronger steel? Also, the plane isn’t just made of hemp, it is some type of composite. And one other thing, it sounds like the plane isn’t built, “When the first hemp plane is completed, its first flight is set to take place at The Wright Brother’s Memorial in Kitty Hawk North Carolina – the birthplace of aviation.” So, what is the purpose of this article? Asking for a friend.
I can see replacing fiberglass with hemp, but what about the epoxy? Is it plant based as well? Steve
Kitty Hawk North Carolina was not the birth place of aviation…
Derek is a fraud and has been lying for years. He’s hiding in Costa Rica. Writers are not doing proper research. FAKE! There is NO plane. He fakes the photos, and has a whole bunch of fake business pages all over the internet (look at Facebook alone for Hempearth… they’re all fake) for a variety of hemp products.. none of which he actually makes. He’s a scam artist and wants money. That’s it. Look it up, make proper calls to verify info before publishing.
WILL OUR HEMP FUTURE SURVIVE THESE CHARLATANS? IT HAS SO FAR..
Did anyone notice this line in the article. “It recently turned down Dupont as they “don’t and never will sign or work with fascist companies that are associated with military, The Rockefellers, The Rothchilds…”
“The Rothschilds” are a Jewish financier family who are the target of centuries of conspiracy theories. When someone says, “We don’t take money from the Rothschilds,” as if they’re a serious banking force anymore then it’s a sign of slipping into the dark side of internet conspiracy theories.
10x stronger than steel? I really doubt that.
