Hemp Education

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. ~Nelson Mandela

Much work still needs to be done with the general public, farmers and our elected officials about the nutritional, industrial, environmental and medicinal benefits of hemp. As laws change, research is conducted and commercialization begins, sharing information will be vital to ensure the hemp industry thrives. NHA is committed to advancing this awareness and knowledge.

Hemp Legislation

NHA’s main priority is the passage of comprehensive hemp legislation on a federal level. We also are here to help individual states with their hemp legislation. Stay tuned for important updates of how you can help pass HR3550, The 2017 Industrial Hemp Act!

Hemp Business

Hemp has the potential to bring prosperity to many segments of our society. Not only will it be a new cash and rotational crop for farmers, the possibilities for manufacturing are virtuously endless. Not only can hemp make thousands of products, hemp can be used to makes thousands of products, better, stronger and more sustainable. Now is the time to start think about how hemp can be incorporated into your business plan. If you have an existing hemp business, an NHA business level membership is a great way to not only support our efforts but to promote your business tp thousands of hemp enthusiasts!

The two plants are the same species, but are more like first cousins and NOT identical twins.

“Hemp Can Save The Planet!”

Jack Herer

Hemp is the most versatile plant on earth.
It can be used for food, medicine, biofuel, compostable plastics, building materials and more.
It is time for the full legalization of industrial hemp at the federal level.
