Hemp shives are derived from the wooden core of industrial hemp stems through processing the hemp straw. A special blend based on the optimal particle fraction for construction purposes has been recently developed by HempFlax. These shives have a high absorption capacity, up to 500%. Therefore the shives are able to cohese with the lime and water, which in turn delivers a solid construction wall or panel.
