Hempcrete

COLLAGE is the first known retail cannabis store in North America (perhaps in the modern world) to take the path of full-plant utilization by incorporating Cannabis Hemp into the interior design direction.  COLLAGE has a feature wall that was built with hempcrete biocomposite material, a mixture of hemp hurds, sand, and lime.

Cannabis Hemp or Industrial Hemp is a strain of cannabis sativa that was historically grown for industrial purposes. At the beginning of the 20th century, Hemp was used for commercial and industrial products such as textiles, clothing papers, biofuels, bioplastics, building materials, and various other fiber usages.

Industrial Hemp & Cannabis

The feature Hemp Wall was built by Melody Mossing and 8th Fire Innovations, while utilizing Hemp Bed from Natural Fibre Technologies. The production team and materials were locally sourced from Alberta. 

Environmentally-Sustainable Biomaterial

Hemp is entirely organic and does not involve any synthetic components. As a result, the Hempcrete produced from hemp is naturally sourced and does not require a large amount of energy during production. This makes the material environment-friendly. Compared to Hempcrete, traditional construction materials have a large carbon footprint which is undoubtedly a cause of concern for the planet.
