Our mission

Address the hemp industry's need for fibre processing

Grow an industry where producers prosper

Create opportunity for eco-friendly manufacturing

Support innovation for diverse local economies

Good for the soil

 Northern Alberta is perfect for growing hemp fibre. Our long summer days and clean soil provide ideal conditions for tall, high-yield fibre crops. Some varieties can produce up to 10 tonnes per hectare of biomass.

 

Other benefits of growing hemp include low input needs as well as soil structure improvement, weed suppression, erosion control, and ground toxin cleanup. 

 

The missing link:             processing

Alberta Hemp Works develops and sells hemp products that use the entire hemp plant. We believe that building and sustaining Alberta's hemp industry depends on "whole plant utilization" and maximizing the potential of hemp fibre. The missing link is decortication or processing capacity, turning raw stalks into usable hurd and bast fibre. 

The Hemp Works decortication line will be ready for commissioning in the Summer of 2020. This allows our farmers to sell their hemp straw, rather than burn it while manufacturers can buy local, rather than import. Decorticated materials can be used immediately or processed further for hundreds of different applications. See products
