    Thanks for the summary about hurd. The time is nearing for true growth of the hemp industry in the production of hemp fiber, hurd (core), dust, and grain for the food (grain and oil), building materials (hempcrete, insulation, fiberboard, etc.) animal bedding (equine/horse, guinea pig, poultry, etc.), clothing, bioplastics, etc. industries.
    More information about hemp for grain and fiber, especially in the USA, can be found on the Hemp Industries Association website at (http://thehia.org), Nutiva website (http://nutiva.com), Manitoba Harvest website (http://manitobaharvest.com), Vote Hemp website (http://votehemp.com) or American Hemp website (http://americanhempinc.com).
