The patent pending eHempHouse HempGin is a unique, mobile,self contained off-grid energy production and storage unit which processes industrial scale quantities of hemp into valuable products. This allows farmers across the world to join in the new hemp boom with little cost and risk whilst saving the planet on a scale never before attained.
The eHempHouse HempGin V1.0 processes hemp and produces products such as CBD oil, electricity, and Green Diesel while also providing benefits to the community.

Industrial hemp has been scientifically proven to absorb more CO2 per hectare than any forest or
commercial crop and is therefore the ideal carbon sink. One hectare of industrial hemp can absorb
22 tonnes of CO2 per hectare, about the area of two soccer pitches. Hemp's rapid growth makes it
one of the fastest CO2-to-biomass conversion tools available, more efficient than agro-forestry.
In addition, the CO2 is permanently bonded within the fiber that is used for anything from textiles,
to paper and as a building material. It is currently being used by the automobile industry in Europe
to replace plastics in car construction.
It can be constantly replanted and as such meets permanence criteria as defined by the Kyoto
Even today, many regions around the world are disadvantaged by having to rely on a defective or
even non-existent power supply grid. This is particularly true of some remote rural areas.
The HempGin is able to operate independently from the mains power grid or in synchronization
with it, microgrids provide remote or rural areas with a secure and reliable supply of green, locally
generated energy. They can also be used effectively for industrial and retail operations.
Hemp fiber has a long history of use, and the seeds are not only nutritional, but have a remarkably
high oil content. Hemp, essentially a weed, thrives on poor land and requires minimal inputs, yet
produces nearly four times as much oil per acre as soybeans, which is currently the only crop
grown on a large scale for green diesel in the U.S. The biggest challenge to using hemp as a
biofuel is that so little of it is grown. Some countries, such as France and Canada, produce it on a
limited scale, but in the U.S. “industrial” hemp has been illegal for farmers to grow since the
1930s—even though it does not contain enough THC to get anyone high.
Biochar Is a Valuable Soil Amendment
This 2,000 year-old practice converts agricultural waste into a soil enhancer that can hold carbon, boost food security, and increase soil biodiversity, and discourage deforestation. The process creates a fine-grained, highly porous charcoal that helps soils retain nutrients and water.
Biochar is found in soils around the world as a result of vegetation fires and historic soil management practices. Intensive study of biochar-rich dark earths in the Amazon (terra preta), has led to a wider appreciation of biochar’s unique properties as a soil enhancer.
Biochar can be an important tool to increase food security and cropland diversity in areas with severely depleted soils, scarce organic resources, and inadequate water and chemical fertilizer supplies.
Biochar also improves water quality and quantity by increasing soil retention of nutrients and agrochemicals for plant and crop utilization. More nutrients stay in the soil instead of leaching into groundwater and causing pollution.
CBD is one of many compounds, known as cannabinoids, in the cannabis plant. Researchers
have been looking at the possible therapeutic uses of CBD.
All cannabinoids, including CBD, produce effects in the body by attaching to certain receptors. The
human body produces certain cannabinoids on its own. It also has two receptors for cannabinoids,
called the CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors.CB1 receptors are present throughout the body, but
many are in the brain.
The CB1 receptors in the brain deal with coordination and movement, pain, emotions, and mood,
thinking, appetite, and memories, and other functions. CB2 receptors are more common in the
immune system. They affect inflammation and pain.
Researchers once believed that CBD attached to these CB2 receptors, but it now appears that
CBD does not attach directly to either receptor. Instead, it seems to direct the body to use more of
its own cannabinoids.
CBD use may help treating:
pain relief and has anti-inflammatory properties
quitting smoking and drug withdrawals
post-traumatic stress disorder
general anxiety disorder
social anxiety disorder
According to Cornell, the returns above total costs estimates for 2019 are $248, $624, and $867 per acre for industrial hemp for fiber only, seed (grain) only, and dual purpose fiber and seed (grain), respectively, for the New York State farmer.
The returns for biodiesel, CBD oil, electricity, carbon offsetting and biochar have not been mentioned.
The benefits of growing industrial hemp in combination with operating the eHempHouse HempGin v1.0 are of significant importance not only for rural areas in the US but internationally in developing countries.
Hemp seeds can be consumed or used to produce a variety of food products including hemp milk, hemp oil, hemp cheese substitutes and hemp-based protein powder.
According to the USDA National Nutrient Database, one tablespoon of hemp seeds weighing 30 grams (g) contains:
9.47 g of protein
14.62 g of fat
2.6 g of carbohydrates (including 1.2 g of fiber and 0.45 g of sugar)
21 milligrams (mg) of calcium
2.38 mg of iron
210 mg of magnesium
495 mg of phosphorus
360 mg of potassium
2.97 mg of zinc
33 micrograms (mcg) of folate
Hemp seeds also provide vitamin C, some B vitamins, and vitamins A and E
