I'm an interior design student from Falmouth. I'm very interested in the use of sustainable building materials, particularly hemp and hempcrete. My previous project was about removing the stigma behind marijuana. I was hoping you could answer some questions?
Is commercial use hemp grown in the U.K. currently?
Is it expensive to buy/farm?
Is it easy to make the products and install/build with it? Ie, does it require a high amount of skill etc.
Are there any problems - long term and short term - that come with using hemp as a building material?
Many thanks for your time! Your answers would be most helpful for my next project.
