Product Description

Category Description: Gmund Hanf

A Gmund exclusive and an ecological sensation, Hanf hemp paper is made with 100%, 50%, or 10% European hemp fibers. The long hemp fibers that make up Hanf create sheets that are strong, soft to the touch, unique and natural in appearance, and superb in printability. Hanf is available in two weights and several sizes to meet your sustainable packaging, branding, and stationery needs.

Good, Better, Best - What's the Difference?

Hanf is offered as Good, Better, and Best, each in 81lb text and 118lb cover, each containing a different percentage of hemp. Here's a rundown:

  • Good (10% hemp & 90% pure pulp): Soft white in color, smooth to the touch
  • Better (50% hemp & 50% recycled fiber): Off-white in color with natural inclusions with a natural, tactile finish
  • Best (100% pure European hemp): 100% hemp paper is only made by Gmund! Made with pure hemp, this sheet is ultra strong, tactile, and unique from sheet to sheet.

Why Hemp? Because It's a Game Changer!

Why is hemp paper all the rage? Because it's super sustainable, smart, and simply beautiful. Here's some fun facts:

  • Hemp fibers are naturally light so require less bleach than wood pulp paper
  • A hemp field produces 4 to 5 times as much paper as a forest of the same size
  • Hemp can be harvested 3 times a year. In comparison, a tree needs 7 years or more
  • Hemp doesn't deplete soil, is naturally pest resistant, and doesn't give weeds a chance, so fewer pesticides and herbicides are needed
  • Hemp fibers are 5 times longer than wood fibers. This not only creates a stronger paper, but a paper that can be recycled many more times.

Hemp fibers are naturally long and stable and have a unique way of grouping together during production. This gives hemp paper natural strength and a "wild", organic appearance. The more hemp content there is in a sheet, the more pronounced these characteristics.

What Does Hemp Paper Look Like?

What do we mean when we say hemp is "wild" in appearance? Hold a sheet of Hanf Best (100% hemp) up to the light. Do you see those clusters of fibers? Now, run your fingers along its surface. Do you feel that soft, subtle texture? Finally, check out the sheet next to it. Notice it's slightly different and perhaps has some subtle plant-based inclusions. That's what we mean by wild - natural, tactile, distinct, and simply beautiful from sheet to sheet.

Hemp produces 5 times more paper than wood

The Environmental Advantages of Hemp: Some Fun Facts

Why hemp paper? Hemp is a quickly-growing, readily renewable raw material that can be easily cultivated and fully utilized, making it a sustainable alternative to conventional wood-based paper.

  • One field of hemp yields four to five times as much paper as a forest of the same size.
  • Hemp can be harvested three times a year, but trees can be harvested only once every seven years.
  • A hemp field can be replanted immediately after the harvest because hemp doesn't deplete soil.
  • Hemp plants are naturally pest-resistant, so their cultivation requires fewer pesticides.
  • Hemp eliminates weeds on its own, so fewer herbicides are applied.
  • Hemp fibers are naturally light in color, so they require little bleaching.
  • Hemp fibers are five times longer than wood pulp fibers, improving the wastepaper cycle as they can be recycled more times.
  • Unlike wood-based paper, hemp paper hardly yellows and has a much longer lifespan.
