AS should forge ahead and use hempwood

A recent technology that has some patents, hempwood grows in just 6 months and holds its strength better in moist conditions. 20% harder than oak. Hempboard https://hemptechglobal.com/page15/styled-20/page35.html could be used as a flooring instead of the 3/4 plywood and a finish product on top, cabinets, etc.

While I love the idea of a super-renewable resource, it is still particles glued together, and we've seen over many generations of Airstream that particle board is a horrible sub-floor (or cabinet material, for that matter).


If the product was somehow using the hemp fibers to "link" together and improve strength, that would be an improvement, but the website makes no mention of such an advancement to "particle board technology." It would seem it's just a material which grows faster (which is great, but still not appropriate for use in something like an Airstream, which inevetibaly is subjected to moisture at some point).
