I am an Ontario College student, in an environmental program. I am working on a term report involving reducing the stress we put on our Wastewater treatment systems. I have been trying to find Toilet Paper made from Hemp, to conduct experiments on, but it is proving very difficult. I am not even sure if such a product is actually produced! If it is and anyone reading this knows where I can acquire a roll please let me know! Chris
I would like to speak with someone about getting together the equipment and the training necessary to start a hemp paper making facility. Could you please recommend some contacts on the West Coast, or in Canada. Thank you. I am really eager to get something started. tiana krahn
Where could I buy huge rolls of hemp paper? Please let me know, I’m bouncing some ideas around with some people. Nice vision. John Vescovi
I would like to produce non THC hemp for food, paper bags and rope. I feel the bag market would be huge. I have access to hundreds of acres of previously used pulled and vacated apple orchards which are in a climate ideal for hemp production. Is there a place in the Continental US that can process hemp for this application and what, if any, federal laws would I have to comply with to take on a venture such as this? It seems that the powers that control paper, cotton, plastic by product would fight a venture such as this solely on a base fear drug platform as they always have. Please, anyone with any information please contact me. thanks. DC Broughton
Do you know of any printing press in Australia printing on hemp paper?
Do you know of any book manufacturers that use hemp paper to print on? Lisa
Hi. I’m part of my school’s environment club. We are trying to make the school less wasteful. Are there any companies in western Canada that produce and sell bulk hemp paper? Because we are trying to find out if the paper used in our shool can be replaced by something more environmental like hemp paper. Yvonne du Plessis
I am interested in supporting the industrial aspect of the hemp industry – production of paper, car interiors, upholstery stuffing, carpeting, work clothing, fuel, etc. – by investing in companies which manufacture these things from hemp. I am a horticulturist who cares deeply about our earth’s health and see this as an opportunity to help. Could you please steer me in this direction? Robert Bourne
I hope this letter can reach the correct party. I am trying to add your website as a source for the fact that the Constitution was drafted on Hemp paper to http://www.wikepedia.org and am receiving feedback from my peers saying that your website doesn’t cite the source for the “claim”. Could you help me locate the source of the fact that “George Washington and Thomas Jefferson both grew hemp. Ben Franklin owned a mill that made hemp paper. Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence on hemp paper.” If so it would be much appreciated? Thanks, Jared

Where I could buy hemp yarn for knitting sweaters and other types of clothing. See, I can knit, and would like to knit myself some hemp clothing because to buy hemp clothing as it is, is way too expensive. Could you tell me anywhere I could purchase it in Calgary, Alberta, Canada or maybe order it online somewhere. I know lots of places to find twine and rope but what I want is hemp that is used to make clothing. Thank you very much, I looking forward to your answer.

I need to locate a hemp paper maker that can provide me with a 25″ by 30″ handmade document for a document that will be presented to the White House. Any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Organic Zack
#1. Have you completed your project yet? I know the perfect person that would be able to assist you here in Canada. Let me know if I can help. Contact me at: Dan Scheele, Ingersoll, Ontario, Canada.
I am interested in information on using hemp to produce paper products in developing countries. I am particularly interested in toilet tissue, paper towels, and paper napkins. What kind of pulp preparation is needed and are there machines available that do it? I would also like to use the hemp fiber for clothing and other related uses. I’m also curious about seed availability, the difficulties and needs in order to become a self sufficient operation. Also, what kind of electrical and labor supplies a small processing plant would need. Information on the types and the amounts of waste produced, uses for this waste and so on. Please provide any information you might have that may help me to open this type of plant. Thanks.
A #1. What countries in particular? Here in London we are meeting with hemp farmers from Kenya and Uganda who have very similar aims. One has access to a paper plant, in fact, they have cut down the trees around the plant so they need to replace the wood fiber with something local. Hemp is especially good for thin papers. The thinnest that I know is either cigarette paper or 16gsm cosmetic tissue made by a French firm. Papers for Bibles are often made of hemp. Getting seeds is something they are working on. EcoFibres of Australia is in talks with them, though there are other seed banks, mainly in the Soviet bloc. Textile production would be ideal, but it may take a lot of time just now if you are starting out in a Third World country, and you would need to perfect the processes and have the machinery; most do not, and even here in the UK, hemp that was grown for textiles had to be shipped to Romania for processing. Presently we are putting information up at www.hempforvictory.blogspot.com and there you can use the key word search as an index to look at what you want. You can also e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’d be happy to work with you further. Regards, Kenyon Gibson
Please provide information about the manufacture of hemp paper? Ecoway Italy
A #1. I happen to have a number of experimental recipes that the U.S. government recorded when they were using hemp hurds for paper-making. If these are of use to you maybe, I can copy and send by slow mail. Just now Gmund is perhaps the largest hemp paper company in the world. John Hanson of the UK has been making the best here, with a very distinctive watermark. There will be some amount of information on this at www.hempforvictory.blogspot.com, and you can put in a key word and do a search on it, just like the index to a book.Regards, Kenyon Gibson
I am interested in getting information on processing hemp into toilet paper and hand towels. Also where you can buy the equipment needed to do it. Thank you, Don Keckley
A #5. Hi Dave, Well, if you find a way to make it… I will surely be one to buy it. Nobody has cornered this market, believe me, I have searched. A good place to look how to make it may be in the archives. I know that hemp toilet paper used to be manufactured before growing hemp in the U.S. became illegal. I am sure there must be some information there. Good luck!.
A #4. Does anybody know where I can purchase hemp toilet paper? Thank you, Marnie
A #3. I’m looking for information concerning the transformation of industrial hemp fibers. Is the processing of hemp to make paper similar to the traditional wood fiber methods? In the same sense, is it possible to transform an industry, already running with traditional machinery to make hemp paper without starting all over? Is it possible to adapt traditional machinery to make hemp?
A #2. Hi! I was wondering what the production process for hemp paper is. Does it need the same technology used for making paper from wood? Do you have any information on organosolov and biopulping of tree-free paper and would you know which is most commonly used?
A #1. I am also interested in processing hemp into toilet paper and paper towels. What kind of electrical needs would a small plant have?
I want to sell hemp paper in the U.K. but I don’t know enough about the industry. Could you please provide me with addresses of factories working in Europe?
