Himalayan Hemp Hurds

Type

Quarter Inch to 1 inch pieces

Hemp hurds are also known as hemp "shives" or hemp "core" fiber. This is the woody, inner part of the hemp stalk which is left over when the bark fiber is removed. The inner fibers of hemp are more woody, and are more often used in non-woven items and other industrial applications. These fibers look like wood chips, but are much lighter and more absorbent.

Applications:

  • Animal bedding for both horses and small mammals

  • Mulch for gardens and planters, trees, etc.

  • Stuffing for meditation cushions

  • Children's "Sandboxes"

  • They are also used in the construction for such diverse products as composite panels (hempboard) as well as a type of cement (hempcrete).
