We had some FUN in 2021

October 2nd 2021 iHempWA celebrated their annual gathering in style at the South of Perth Yacht Club with a Hemp is Healthy Family Fair and Sundowner. It was an amazing event with stalls, a hemp food cafe and free kids activities. Watch the full edit.

We thank the boys at WA Extra for covering the day, the SoPYC for working with us to help normalize Cannabis conversations, we thank all our sponsors and supporters who came to celebrate with us, we thank our members and most importantly we thank our committee and volunteers.

We invited some hemp industry professionals to sit on the Q&A panel and our MC David Chick steered the group discussion through What is hemp? to Why are we not following the Green Boom in Europe, Canada and America? Watch the discussion.

For humans to live sustainably, the Earth’s resources must be used at a rate at which they can be replenished. There is now clear scientific evidence that humanity is living in an unsustainable fashion, and that an unprecedented collective effort is needed to return human use of clean renewable resources to within sustainable limits. Industrial Hemp is a natural resource that offers a solution as an efficient carbon sequestrian plant.

Hemp is the economical, environmental and ethical solution for many of our worlds problems… Choose hemp products, locally grown and produced when possible. Conscious consumers are changing our world. Free the plant, people and planet…

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.
