Cannabis, a plant for making planes, boats, cars, and more!

The cannabis plant is already manufacturing everything from planes to boats and cars, but it consumes fuel from the plant itself. Using the cannabis plant to make planes is no longer a story of innovation.  In fact, Henry Ford’s car was made from this material as long as 80 years ago. is a mobile application that collects the latest happenings on medical and therapeutic cannabis in the world.

Cannabis for industrial use is no longer a new concept as it has become increasingly popular on the global market in recent years. This new economic crop has wide market prospects in the fields of medicine, but textiles, clothing, papermaking, chemicals, new building materials, etc. Today, it is also entering areas that were previously unimaginable, such as aerospace and automobile manufacturing.

With the increasing requirements for environmental protection and carbon emissions, even the traditional aircraft manufacturing industry has been looking for the latest . Now it is using the most innovative methods to improve its products, save production costs and be more environmentally friendly.

In 2019, the Canadian company Hempearth proposed to build the world’s first cannabis-based aircraft. The main components of the aircraft are made entirely of cannabis materials: seats, wings, aircraft fuselage, and even the seats, etc., and can be powered by 100% cannabis fuel. The aircraft has a wingspan of 11 meters and can accommodate one pilot and four passengers.

More information about Hempearth

Hempearth was founded in 2012. The company’s products also include surfboards made from 100% hemp, oils, boards, plastic, the world’s first phone made from this hemp fiber, and various organic products. Traditional plastics are harmful to the environment, but people cannot do without the usefulness of plastics. Finding alternatives to plastics has become a consensus.

The company’s 100% cannabis fiberboard is a medium density fiberboard made from fibers from the hemp plant. It is usually used to replace wood, particleboard or MDF, and with special decorative surfaces with fine and uniform edges. The use of cannabis to make degradable bioplastics has become a possible alternative to plastics.

Hempearth’s cannabis plastic

Hempearth’s cannabis plastic is a bio-based product containing 30% of its fiber. This plastic is produced from cellulose extracted from the stems of these plants. It is then used to complete the polymer chains and combined with catalysts to accelerate polymer replication.

It is then mixed with additives and heated to make it more flexible. After cooling, the resulting hemp plastic is usually cut into pellets and sent to the manufacturing cannabis. In areas where traditional plastics can be used, this other one can be used.

Lighter and faster cannabis cars and yachts

In 2019, Porsche launched the Cayman GT4 Clubsport car, which uses cannabis fiber as its body material. The body and rear spoiler are made of organic fiber, mainly flax and cannabis fibers. These materials are comparable to carbon fiber in weight and hardness, which can reduce body weight and improve handling.

Due to the material properties of cannabis, New Zealand’s high-tech composite boat builder, Caliber Boats, produced the eco-friendly cannabis speedboat Earthrace in 2006. The speedboat is 78 feet long and costs $2.4 million.

The boat runs on biofuels, animal fats, soya or other forms of biodiesel. The hull is protected by a three-layer shell, with two advanced engines inside and a maximum speed of approximately 74 kilometers per hour. Even if you sail in large waves, your speed will not decrease.
