Hemp is in Endoca’s DNA. Not only is it the plant that founder Henry Vincenty’s forefathers grew, but he has personally made it his mission to bring its therapeutic capacities to the world at large.
But hemp’s potential isn’t just limited to extracting CBD. Before anyone knew what a cannabinoid even was, hemp was used for its extra strong fiber, as an alternative to wood chip paper, and even as an extra durable material to make one Henry T Ford’s cars.
BUT – whether you want to go down the conspiracy theory route or not – for some reason hemp became outlawed, particularly in the United States. Cotton, petroleum based materials such as nylon and plastics took over, and hemp became written off as an illegal, hippy has-been.
Who cares, right? Well, when you consider the current state of the planet and the damage our insatiable appetite for all things plastic has done, not to mention the destruction of the rainforests, and the approaching environmental catastrophe that awaits us, isn’t it time hemp were seriously considered as a more sustainable alternative?
That’s what Endoca believes, and we support other hemp activists around the world who are striving to bring this fantastically versatile plant back into the public domain.
Hemp Road Trip
Just like ‘The Hemp Road Trip’. These guys have been tirelessly travelling around the US in a biodiesel bus, meeting with legislators, law enforcers, hemp farmers, local businesses, and everyday citizens with the express mission of changing the current anomaly whereby hemp is illegal according to US federal law.
Throughout the journey, the team headed by Rick Trojan, a Denver hemp grower and businessman, have been filming material to make a feature length documentary. Trojan hopes the film will “help us get this message to more and more folks, and help rid America of fear of this agricultural crop.”

The Hemp Road Trip: The Movie – needs your help
Just this week the Hemp Road Trip have launched a crowdfunding campaign in order to raise funds to turn their material into the kind of high quality documentary that will bring the end of federal prohibition one step closer.
Rick says: “It is important that this film is a high-end production, so we can more effectively spread the word about the benefits of this crop and continue to raise awareness. It’s only through education that we can affect change and bring about an end to the disaster that is prohibition.
“The funds will be applied towards production costs for this documentary. We need to rent equipment, license software and purchase various sound and graphic packages. We want to collaborate with independent musicians & artists so we can make the most impactful hemp film in nearly a decade!”
Check out the trailer below and you’ll see just what promise the documentary shows.
Getting hemp the recognition it deserves isn’t something that only affects the US. This is a global issue. So, let’s all join together and give hemp the chance to save our planet.
