Anita and Wayne Edwards on their organic farm with Hon Alannah MacTiernan MLC Minister for Regional Development; Agriculture and Food; Ports; Minister Assisting the Minister for State Development, Jobs and Trade – January 2019
We celebrate the recent positive changes in Medicinal Cannabis and Hemp foods legislation. We believe Hemp (low THC Cannabis) will be an integral part of the Green Rush for WA in coming years. A sustainable multi-sector industry, a land enriching agricultural boom, a processing and manufacturing boom creating sustainable and long term employment opportunities across the state in rural and urban communities.
Once initial processing facilities are established hemp fibre/hurd/fines will supply new manufacturing businesses producing anything from buildings and insulation to clothing and fashion accessories to paper and particleboard to cars and super capacitor batteries to nanofibre bioplastics and biofuels, to super nutritional food and drink products and of course medicine.
With your help spreading the new knowledge; we are fostering the public’s growing awareness and interest in hemp to increase general demand for hemp products. We are spreading the good word via education events and workshops. By revealing the true nature of the cannabis plant, its ancient and modern history, its vast array of uses and myriad products that can be made, along with the potential long term ecological and ethical value to our mother earth and her people.
We are supporting and representing all hemp industry stakeholders and collaboratively engaging with all hemp/cannabis industry regulators to create a community with a common vision…to establish, develop and support a sustainable and prosperous hemp industry for Western Australia.
