What does hemp mean to you?

Perhaps it's the positive light it shines on our world's environmental issues and how hemp reduces our carbon footprint that gives promise to our uncertain future. Maybe it's the textiles and building materials it can produce from it's fibers such as paper, insulation and cloth. The jobs it has created in this fast growing industry that could end economic hardship in communities. The nutritional food it supplies such as non-dairy, gluten free milk or high protein hemp seed. The medicinal products that have shown to give benefit to those suffering from an array of illnesses. Whatever hemp is to you, it’s important to all of us.

Research drives education and change. We, at the Industrial Hemp Research Foundation (IHRF), commit ourselves to supporting not only top-quality research at universities across America, but bridging the gap between hemp pilot programs and private funding. But we cannot do this without you. The time is now to grow and protect our future for generations to come. We ask you to join us in our efforts to grow the body of knowledge that will be the driving force of this emerging industry. For us. For you. For them. Because hemp can.


With your donation you will be supporting new research, development on new and existing hemp uses, and spreading education about the value and benefits this misunderstood crop can bring to struggling economies, environments and communities throughout the United States. The IHRF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit which makes your gift 100% tax deductible.
