View Full Version : New hemp products...? question for eddie and other knowledgable mj enthusiasts

Do you think that they could make gi's, gi pants, belts, shorts, various mma gear etc. out of hemp fibers? Do you think it'd be cheaper? Just wondering?

They absolutely could make gi's and shorts from hemp. It would only be cheaper if it was mass produced, and the only place with that much hemp and the ability to mass produce is china. Stretchy fabrics would be a blend at best, but gloves and punching bags would be no problem in theory, I just bet it would either be a one-off custom job or mass production, there is no easy middle ground with stuff like that. Great idea though.
