Hemp Insulation?

Where can I purchase hemp insulation for my home? I am curious about cost compared to fiberglass and availability in the U.S.?

    I am a log builder from BC, living in the czech republic with my czech wife. I found the hemp insulation because i use it in our log homes.

    I am trying to introduce it into the canadian and american market. unfortunately hemp is still viewed as a ” lefty ” product. but is actually a more relyable and higher quality product than fiberglass. not to mention the monumental effect for our environment, as fiberglass doesn´t recycle, and hemp is an all natural product with an enourmous potential to decrease greenhouse gasses.

    good luck to all of you, and i hope I can be of help.

  2. Hey Kiran, a good idea may be to buy bulk then go sell the extra on consignment at your local head shop or other leftie / hemp oriented establishment. Look specifically at co-op hardware supplies stores.

  3. If any of you are still looking for hemp insulation, I’m going to contact Tradical and would be interested in making a bulk order with a few people. Could you let me know what you might like to purchase from their website, and how much?
