It certainly has merits such as hemp being a wonder crop and the co2 sequestration; it has a good U-value; good air-tightness when blown; its fire-resistant and apparently recyclable. However, it is messy and caustic to work with. It has a high embodied energy because of the lime and takes 3 months to dry properly or you run the risk of growing fungi, even proper mushroom on your walls. It has no load-bearing capacity and is really only good for retro-fitting insulation. I can't see why it would be considered in a new build when other materials would be more advantageous.
