“Henry Ford’s first Model-T was built to run on hemp gasoline and the car itself was constructed from hemp. On his large estate, Ford was photographed among his hemp fields. The car, ‘grown from the soil,’ had hemp plastic panels whose impact strength was 10x stronger than steel”
— Popular Mechanics (1941)

Hemp seed oil can be used to produce ORGANIC non-toxic diesel fuel, lamp lighting, household detergents, stain removers, printing inks, paints, varnishes, lubricants, resins, and oils. Because hemp seeds account for up to half the weight of a mature hemp plant, hemp seed is a viable source for these products. In industrial ‘chemicals’, hempseed oil is similar to linseed oil. Superior quality paints and varnishes were made from hemp seed oil until 1937.

Testimony before Congress against the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act:

— Sherman Williams Paint Co.

“Why use up the forests which were centuries in the making and the mines which required ages to lay down, if we can get the equivalent of forest and mineral products in the annual growth of the hemp fields?”
— Henry Ford

“Make the most you can of the Indian Hemp seed and sow it everywhere.”
— George Washington 1794
