CanTop is a topping layer of hemp shives for the horticulture industry. The hemp shives are processed from of the inner core of industrial hemp stems without the use of chemicals.

The correct application of CanTop creates an excellent layer against weeds and moss. During potting, apply the CanTop and moisten it with a fine spray of water, to make it immediately adhere to the top of the soil.  The upper surface of this layer dries out well, meaning that weeds are less easily able to germinate. After application, CanTop sits firmly on the top of the soil, and with the passing of time, will adhere even better.

  • CanTop has no influence on the pH level of the soil
  • CanTop extracts little nitrogen, so the fertilizer does not need to be adjusted
  • Supplied in large bags with a distribution volume of 2.3 m3
  • CanTop can be applied by hand or machine, using an agricultural spreader (eg Javo or Wilburg)
  • For best results, carefully apply 1cm of CanTop
  • Ensure that the edges of the pot are free from substrate


Hemp wood comes from the inner core of the plant stems. When the stem is processed, bast fibers are stripped away and the inner core broken into shives. This category covers all HempFlax wood products.
