“Is it legal? How much can I take? Will I still fail a drug test? Will it make me high? How does it work?”

These are just some of the questions we receive on a daily basis at Hemporium.

Deconstructing the Fascinating Field of Building with Hemp

Hemporium hosted the latest in our hemp awareness evenings last week. This time we deconstructed the fascinating field of building with hemp.

Hemporium has pioneered hemp building in South Africa, starting with “The House that Hemp Built” in Noordhoek Cape Town in 2011.

This house is a showcase for hemp products and includes hempcrete walls, hemp chipboard, hemp insulation, hemp carpets, curtains, couches and more.

We have since been involved in 4 more buildings, including a Soup Kitchen in Khayelitsha.

Hempcrete is the “better than zero carbon” building system. For more information please visit the “USES” section or click HERE for an article on the original house.
