Portland, Oregon-based hemp advocate & owner of Oregon Hemp Works
Oregon Hemp Works produces a premier line of hemp body care products from hemp soaps and lotions to massage oils and mud masks.
Ben is also part of The Hemp Foundation, an organization dedicated to educating people about the historic uses and current applications of industrial hemp. The Hemp Foundation sets up a traveling hemp display at festivals and conferences, offering a hands-on experience to demonstrate the many ways hemp can be used.
As a renewable energy/business major, Ben was one of the first to make hemp biodiesel. One of his newer passions regarding hemp is its use in construction projects (hempcrete). He continues expanding his education and recently participated in a workshop led by hempcrete guru, Steve Allin where he helped build a hempcrete home in Bellingham, WA.
