Hemp, Lifeline is a must-have reference book for any writer or researcher of hemp. I use it frequently in the production of HempWorld. -- Mari Kane, HempWorld magazine
A wonderful resource on all aspects of hemp, from agricultural pursuits to its many forms as a commodity. -- Outfitter magazine, March 1995
An exhaustive study of all things hemp; history, physiology, industrial usage, alternative fuel source and the real reasons for its prohibition: profits! It won't take long reading this book to realize the crime of hemp is that America let a few people in power bulldoze one of our great resources into nonexistence. If reading this doesn't make you a hemp activist, it certainly will change the way you look at our so-called "Drug War" and make you think about this extremely important issue. Plus it will give you plenty of ammunition in your next debate on legalization. Ties together the issues of renewable resources vs. false public perceptions in our re-examination of mankind's oldest useful plant. -- Earth Tools, Summer 1994.
Chris Conrad, in his book Hemp, Lifeline to the Future, describes a house in the "biosustainable society" of tomorrow: "Hemp will be used in almost all the component parts of the house itself; the construction boards, insulation, finishes, paint and plumbing. Hemp is incorporated into the desk and all the papers in the house, the clothes in the closet, the fabric of carpets and curtains, and all the plastic components of phone and entertainment systems, computers and accessories. Hemp biofuel provides the household's energy supply."
Oh, and it's cool when you smoke it, too. Conrad cites the rich tradition of marijuana dating back to the Hindu epic story Rig-Veda, some 3500 years ago. Hemp, in short, is the only essential element of a peaceful, non-nuclear bio-world. -- Washington Post, May 31, 1995
I couldn't put this book down. Even though I knew much about hemp, reading all the new information that Chris has unearthed was fascinating. I highly recommend this book. -- Sally Miller, Synergy magazine, 1994
Reasoned, exhaustively footnoted. -- Orange County Weekly Cal., Nov. 17-23, 1995, p. 14.
Your book was truly inspiring. Hempsters owe a great debt to you for taking the time to collect the information required to write such an informative tome. I also really like the way Lifeline is presented. -- John Dvorak, Hemp magazine, 1996
From the Publisher
We are proud that this book is the first mass-release book to include hemp paper in its production. When the first edition of this book was released there were barely a dozen companies doing business in hemp in the USA. Today there are aver 500. This is in no small part due to the information of this book, and we are glad to have played a pivotal role in the hemp revival. It is as valuable and timely today as it was when first produced in 1993 and when last revised. We are sure that there will be many future editions and are committed to publishing a future edition entirely on hemp paper. This is a book you should share with friends, parents, politicians, libraries, teachers, and anyone affected by the state of the world and the War on Drugs: in other words, everybody. It has also been translated into Italian.

If this book was edited from 300 pages to 100 I think it would be an incredible text. Sorry Mr. Conrad, I respect you as a figure in the hemp culture.
