Fibonacci, LLC aims to be a catalyst for a wave of innovation consumed by the idea that our cultural shift towards a more sustainable way of living is no longer a luxury, but a requirement.
By using the algorithm of a tree, we have reverse engineered the natural growth cycle of plant-based materials and utilized bio-mimicry to transform hemp fibers and protein based bonding agents into a viable wood substitute that is 100 times faster to grow and 20% stronger than oak.
With all typical wood applications being the core function of HempWood, the possibilities are nearly endless.
Hemp With Bamboo Roots
The idea of using hemp as a sustainable wood substitute was inspired by the experiences of our founder, Greg, while he was working for a bamboo flooring company years ago.
Since then, Greg and his development team have worked tirelessly adapting the process of creating bamboo-based lumber into one that utilizes different plant species instead, like eucalyptus and hemp (patented [...]
In 1941, Henry Ford unveiled what may soon be considered the most important invention in history...a nearly carbon neutral automobile made from and powered by plants like cannabis. Astonishingly, it was two and a half times greener than electric vehicles are today. How it was made, and how it was powered made it the greenest car in history.
Our mission at Renew, is to pick up where Mr. Ford left off, yet go beyond...helping to make not only our cars, but all of todays existing cars carbon negative cars by 2025.
Imagine reversing climate change with every mile you drive. The technology already exists today, We are the "crazies" pushing to get these technologies adopted.
Renew designs and manufactures exotic, "Ultra-Low Carbon Footprint" (ULCF) Sports Cars. Our manufacturing processes are as close to carbon neutral as is presently possible . . . resulting in very green cars.
During 2016, only a limited number of hand made, custom built to order "signature" models will be produced. [...]
As a long-lasting building material made from lime and hemp shivs, otherwise known as a waste product from hemp fiber growing, HempCrete is breathable, absorbing and emitting moisture to regulate internal humidity while avoiding trapped water and mold growth.
We are constantly looking for new, eco friendly building materials that will last longer than the concrete, steel, and wood options of today. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the average office building lifespan in 2008 was 73-years. With HempCrete, these same buildings will now come with a 400 to 500-year lifespan.
Using sustainable, throw-away organic materials like lime and hemp shivs makes HempCrete an environmentally friendly building material that is also more durable and longer lasting than all other conventional counterparts. [...]

From Popular Mechanics:
‘When Henry Ford recently unveiled his plastic car, the result of 12 years of research, he gave the world a glimpse of the automobile of tomorrow, its tough panels molded under hydraulic pressure of 1,500 pounds per square inch (psi) from a recipe that calls for 70 percent of cellulose fibers from wheat straw, hemp, and sisal plus 30 percent resin binder. The only steel in the car is its tubular welded frame. The plastic car weighs a ton, 1,000 pounds lighter than a comparable steel car.’
Rudolf Diesel, the inventor of the diesel engine, designed it to run on vegetable and seed oils like hemp. Ford originally intended his vehicles to run off of vegetable oils, stating “there’s enough alcohol in one year’s yield of an acre of potatoes to drive the machinery necessary to cultivate the fields for one hundred years.”
However, the gasoline industry lobbied hard to keep alcohol taxes high and drop the price of gasoline. This even [...]
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) introduced H.R. 3652, the Hemp For Victory Act which helps lay the foundation for the emerging hemp industry in a manner that incentivizes family farmers and small businesses, protects against corporate monopolies, and studies the benefits of hemp cultivation and hemp-based products while ensuring safe agricultural practices, and environmental and labor considerations.
Vote Hemp strongly supports the bill and believes this is the kind of legislation needed to help the nascent hemp industry build a solid footing.
Please send a message to your Congressman and ask him/her to support hemp farmers and businesses by cosponsoring the Hemp For Victory Act. [...]
