Our Hemp Products

Canadian Rockies Hemp Corporation offers multiple specs of hemp:

  • Bast fiber, 

  • Hurd (Shiv), 

  • Screening Products 

 

Each hemp field is grown and harvested to meet customer specifications, allowing us to create specific hemp fibers tailored to your unique purposes.   

Green, partially retted and fully-retted fibers are available.

 

All of our hemp is baled under 15% moisture content to preserve quality.

 

We then process, and package all products under 10% moisture. 

Hemp Products

Decorticated "Short" Fiber

This hemp fiber has been processed to shorter, finer lengths. 

Available at various lengths between 10mm (1/4”) - 100mm (4”), and fineness.

Degummed / Cottonized Fiber

This hemp fiber has been water treated by a proprietary eco -friendly, non-chemical process to remove lignin (glues + waxes).

 

This fiber is customizable for fineness, colour, and length, to meet specifications for textiles and non-wovens.

Screenings / Pelleting

Throughout CHRC’s facility decortication process, the dust/screenings are extracted and stored.

 

The loose material can be sold in bulk or pelletized. Great for spill absorption, cat litter, soil amendments, or even biofuel (burning pellets).

Hurd / Shiv

Hurd (or Shiv) is the woody inner core of the hemp stalk.

 

Throughout our decortication process, the hurd is separated, screened, and packaged.

 

Available in various sizes, and purities.

Question: What can you do with Hemp Fiber?  

Answer: The Possibilities are Endless.

Textiles  

Hemp textiles are resilient and longer lasting than cotton textiles. Unlike cotton, hemp textiles do not lose shape as easily. In addition, hemp fabrics are naturally antimicrobial. A well-crafted hemp textile is durable, breathable and has strong thermal qualities. Not to mention also being mildew-resistant and hypoallergenic. 

 

Hemp textiles also have the best heat capacity ratio compared to all other fibers, meaning they keep the wearer cool in the summer and warm in the winter.  

 

Hemp yarn is smooth, consistent, and very strong. Its softness makes it easy to work with and very comfortable. Cottonized hemp fiber is as soft as cotton while retaining hemp’s positive characteristics and is perfect for blending with other fibers and can be spun on cotton spinning machines.  

Pulp and Paper  

Hemp’s long bast fibers are ideal for making high quality pulp. Due to hemp fiber's’ tensile strength, it can be used in high -end specialized paper products ranging from tea bags, currency paper, cigarette papers or other specialty filters. The hHemp core and whole hemp stalk can also be used to make lower end paper products.  

Hempcrete  

The use of Hempcrete in place of traditional non- sustainable cement building practices is continuing to grow! Homes built with Hempcrete are: 

  • mould resistant 

  • have high vapor permeability, 

  •  humidity control, 

  • and are fire and pest resistant.  

 

Hempcrete is a bio-composite made of hemp hurd mixed with a lime-based binder. Hemp hurd has a high silica content which allows it to bind well with lime. This property is unique to hemp and the result is a lightweight cementitious insulating material, weighing about 1/7th or 1/8th of the weight of concrete! 

 

Hemp homes have an r - 2.5 per inch insulating quality and have the unique ability to capture airborne pollutants over time, meaning, they absorb carbon when the hemp is grown and once the hemp home is built.  

 

A grassroots effort across the world is underway among builders, architects, material suppliers and farmers to promote the building of homes with hempcrete.  

Composites / Plastics  

The basic building blocks of plastic are cellulose which is commonly derived from petroleum. But, did you know that plastic can also be derived from plant cellulose, like hemp? 

 

Hemp can be up to 85% cellulose, making it an environmentally friendly and biodegradable alternative to petroleum-based plastics. Hemp can also be processed into cellophane packaging material, or manufactured into a low-cost, compostable replacement for Styrofoam.  

Automotive

Hemp is already being used in the automotive industry with production of compressed door panels and dashboards.  

 

Automotive companies such as Ford, GM, Chrysler, Saturn, BMW, Honda and Mercedes are currently using hemp composite door panels, trunks, head liners, etc.  

 

Hemp composites are less expensive and less dangerous than other fiberglass counterparts. Hemp fiberglass composites can replace carbon and glass fibers without environmental damage and weight issues that can arise when fiberglass is used.
