Hemp Hurds & Shives For Sale

There are two types of fibers found in hemp: hurd and bast fiber. Hemp hurds (also known as hemp shives) makes up 70% of the plant’s biomass. It is highly rich in cellulose and very good for absorption.

Hemp hurds are the woody, inner-core of the hemp stalks. Once considered a waste product, these shives are what make hempcrete (hurds with lime binder and water). However, hemp hurds also have other applications such as animal bedding, mulch and bioethanol production.
