Smoke on this! Cannabis plants could help fight climate change because they absorb carbon dioxide more than TWICE as effectively as trees Hemp plants capture up to 16 tons of greenhouse gas annually, while trees suck up about six tons Experts say this ability could help humans fight climate change With approximately 50 million acres of hemp,  a couple hundred million tons of carbon per year on that acreage  These plants also grow faster and need less water than other crops
