What can't this plant do? Seriously hemp batteries this has been hard to wrap my head around as the techy's get so excited about technology I'm sitting there going I'm so lost so many big words, I thought it was only in crypto, nope it's in hemp too.
Now I'm getting the two images of Doc in my head from back to the future one holding to hemp batteries electrocuting himself the other him stuffing hemp bio waste into the DeLorean.
The hemp when used in batteries is made into supercapacitors ~ from Wikipedia
A supercapacitor (SC), also called an ultracapacitor, is a high-capacity capacitor with a capacitance value much higher than other capacitors, but with lower voltage limits, that bridges the gap between electrolytic capacitors and rechargeable batteries. It typically stores 10 to 100 times more energy per unit volume or mass than electrolytic capacitors, can accept and deliver charge much faster than batteries, and tolerates many more charge and discharge cycles than rechargeable batteries.
Supercapacitors are used in applications requiring many rapid charge/discharge cycles, rather than long term compact energy storage — in automobiles, buses, trains, cranes, and elevators, where they are used for regenerative braking, short-term energy storage, or burst-mode power delivery. Smaller units are used as a power backup for static random-access memory (SRAM).
If you are wanting to dig deeper into hemp supercapacitors and the scientific testing results of hemp batteries against lithium-ion batteries below are two videos you may enjoy.

Hemp Battery – Almost Unbelieveable
Elon Musk also has an interest in capacitors that store more energy than batteries.
Everyday products are getting the hemp reform from small products to larger ones, with hemp being sustainable and biodegradable,
what will happen to all the non-biodegradable product waste when consumers make a switch?
Until next time ...
