I am looking for some info on these questions:
1: Are hemp fibres superior to tree pulp in paper production or
   are they just a suitable tree-less paper substitute?

2: Are hemp fibres the best non-tree fibre for paper production?

Check out Whole Earth Review No. 80, Fall 1993.  Excellent article on this
subject: "Tree-Free Paper," by John Stahl, who is working to revive the
use of hemp and other alternatives to wood-based paper.  The answer to
both questions is yes.
