It says harder than oak............. then adds:
"His patented product called “HempWood” is made out of compressed hemp pulp fibers, held together with a soy-based glue."
I suppose balsa wood is harder than oak if you soak it in polyester resin.
It also says:
"It also grows 100 times as fast. While it takes an oak tree at least 6 decades to mature, it takes hemp 6 months."
That's a real plus, but I didn't see any actual product. I'm guessing it looks like stranded bamboo?

Looks good. Can't get high off it. Most of our paper products used to be made from hemp until the government confused it with potent Mary jane. And the forestry dept jumped on it.

I think in Oregon, there's a guy starting up to make hemp fabric.
