About the author
Jean Lotus is an award-winning US journalist and businesswoman based in Colorado, one of the first states to legalize cannabis. On the social network Instagram she uses the nickname “Hempcrete Queen” and, in original English, she is nicknamed a “Hempreneur”.

She is currently the editor of Hemp Build Magazine, an online publication founded in March 2021 about the hemp construction industry, but this pioneer of hempcrete She also writes about the American West and sustainable technologies in general, based on community journalism, exploring, for example, the connections between local politics and school councils.

Her interest in hemp began when he wrote for United Press International, covering the American West: “Whenever I wrote about the resurgence of hemp in the United States, I got thousands of views, which showed that people were really interested,” she said.

The magazine she edits connects builders, designers and the hemp-curious in the emerging green or eco-friendly building industry and showcases the many long-term sustainability benefits of replacing traditional building materials with hemp-based products.

Jean is currently involved in research supported by the US Department of Energy that aims to discover a way to make fireproof siding, paneling or stucco that includes hemp.

This sustainable alternative is even more important at a time when the scourge of forest fires is ravaging some regions of the USA, as unfortunately happens every year in Portugal.
