About us - Hemp Tasmania

We are honored to introduce to you the production base of industrial hemp from the last pristine land on Earth – Tasmania, Australia. 

Since 2020, Hemp Tasmania Pty Ltd has held experimental cultivation, breeding, and processing licenses issued by the Tasmanian government, and has conducted two phases of experimental field programs, supporting the expansion to the production of multi-purpose products.

What is the Industrial Hemp?

Industrial hemp, also known as hemp, is a versatile and sustainable crop with a wide range of applications. It is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species specifically cultivated for industrial use. What sets industrial hemp apart is its low tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content, the psychoactive compound found in marijuana. This low THC content ensures that industrial hemp does not produce the intoxicating effects associated with marijuana. Instead, it is valued for its robust fibers, nutritious seeds, and the extraction of compounds like cannabidiol (CBD). Industrial hemp is used in various industries, including textiles, paper, construction materials, and health products. Its eco-friendly nature, fast growth, and multifaceted utility make it a valuable resource for sustainable agriculture and environmentally conscious industries.

Why growing hemp in Tasmania ?

Statistics provided by the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water, and Environment (DPIPWE) reveal that Tasmania contributes to approximately 80% of Australia’s hemp cultivation. Notably, unlike other cannabis varieties, hemp with a THC content under 1% can be grown by licensed farmers. The data indicates a significant expansion in Tasmania’s hemp farming industry, with a 15% increase in cultivated land between 2019 and 2020, expanding from 1,361 hectares to 1,569 hectares. Nutrien Ag Solutions agronomist Emily Ruffo emphasizes the rising potential of hemp as a lucrative export market. She believes that Tasmanian farmers can capitalize on the “Australia-grown” tag and the clean, green reputation of Tasmania. According to Ruffo, this unique positioning makes her optimistic about the bright prospects of the commercial hemp industry.

What are the benefits and uses?

Here are some of the benefits and uses of industrial hemp:

Textiles and Clothing: Hemp fibers are strong, durable, and resistant to UV light and mold. These characteristics make hemp ideal for producing various types of textiles, including clothing, shoes, and bags.

Paper: Hemp can be used to make paper. It matures significantly faster than trees, making it a more sustainable source of paper production.

Building Materials: Hempcrete, made from hemp hurds, lime, and water, is a sustainable construction material. It’s fire and pest resistant, and it’s an excellent insulator, making buildings more energy-efficient.

Bioplastics: Hemp can be used to make biodegradable plastics, providing an eco-friendly alternative to petroleum-based plastics.

Biofuel: Industrial hemp can be converted into two types of biofuels: biodiesel and ethanol. This could reduce dependence on fossil fuels and contribute to carbon neutrality.

Agriculture: Hemp has deep roots that can help prevent soil erosion. It can also help remediate contaminated soils, a process known as phytoremediation, by absorbing pollutants
