The state of South Carolina’s General Assembly recently legalized the farming of industrial hemp. As local newspapers quickly clarified the difference between hemp and its more popular relative marijuana, state politicians and farmers jumped for joy.

“Any agricultural crop we can cultivate here and make a profit for our farmers, we should try,” said Republican State Senator Greg Hembree.

After all, agribusiness is the No. 1 industry in the Palmetto State, so farmers are also celebrating.

South Carolina really needed this

South Carolina farmer Neal Baxley, confirmed that he is definitely interested in planting hemp on some of his available fields where “sunshine is frequent and rain is regular.”

“We’re in an economically depressed region of the state,” said Baxley “So why couldn’t South Carolina attract a new industry, something that has some growth potential? The more people who get the opportunity to get involved in agriculture, the better I think we are in the long run.”

Democratic Representative Russell Ott, co-sponsor of the bipartisan Hemp Bill, said he wouldn’t be surprised if farmers are growing hemp in the next few months.

“The bottom line is, we could have hemp being grown in South Carolina this year. And that’s exciting,” said Ott, who is also a farmer.

People are expecting South Carolina’s authorities to issue at least 20 licenses to grow crops on up to 20 acres as a pilot program, with more to be added soon.

“It’s my hope that they will act very quickly,” said State Sen. Danny Verdin, chairman of the Senate Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee.

Today, about 90 percent of the hemp used in the United States for industrial purposes is imported from China. But, it’s time to bring it back home.

One of the fastest-growing plants in the world and known as the most versatile plant on earth, hemp is used for making all manner of essential objects such as paper, textiles, cloth, biodegradable plastics, paint, biofuel—the list is long.

But, because it is part of the marijuana plant, it was declared illegal in the U.S. in 1937. The industry is just barely getting back in on its feet again, thanks to the 2014 farm bill passed under President Obama.

One of the problems about sanctioning hemp cultivation has been due to the spread of a spurious lie that large hemp fields could be used to mask weed cultivation. John Finamore, executive director of the National Hemp Association in Denver, shot that notion down.

“The last thing a marijuana grower wants to do is grow them together,” he stated, noting that hemp is the dominant of the two species and would neutralize the psychoactive compounds in marijuana.

And no one wants that.

There’s one piece of legislation that seems to be getting a widespread of bipartisan support in Springfield.The Illinois Senate earlier this month collectively gave the green light to a bill that would allow farmers to cultivate and sell industrial hemp, a strain of cannabis. Yet unlike marijuana, industrial hemp contains less than one percent of THC, and its fiber can be used to manufacture a variety of products.

Peoria-based company Global Hemp is developing potential uses for hemp fiber, which can be chemically processed or “cottonized,” to produce a softer material.

“I want this to be that someone goes to Banana Republic, like this shirt I have on, and says, ‘wow, this is hemp? I would have thought this is cotton,’” Global Hemp President Eric Pollitt said, tugging at his plaid sleeve.

Global Hemp is also developing and researching hemp-based materials, like particle board and plastic alternatives, to be used for construction. Pollitt says a car company has already expressed interest in using his product for building prototypes.

“But they can’t say, ‘yeah, sure we’ll go ahead and make next year’s car model with hemp in it, and you guys go ahead and start growing it,’” Pollitt said. “The supply has to be there first. The demand is already there.”

Pollitt says he estimates Illinois stands to gain an economic industry, including processing and transportation, that could outpace the state’s pumpkin crop. The Industrial Hemp Bill now heads to the House.

The legislation would amend the Illinois Noxious Weed Law to allow farmers to grow hemp to be processed and sold for its fiber, seeds and oil. Hemp supporters point to neighboring Kentucky, where more than 135 farms and 40 processors have enrolled in the state’s pilot program that launched in 2016.

Hemp, Inc. Hosts The Hemp University’s 2nd Successful Monthly Educational Symposium – Farming HEMP for Profit(TM)

Industry experts William “Wild Bill” Billings, co-founder of the Colorado Hemp Project and a Colorado native with many of Colorado’s largest corporate and family-owned farms; Dr. Michael Villa, a professional plant ecologist with a diverse background in research of many different plant communities with extensive experience in wetland ecology, restoration, and creation; and, Bob Crumley, founder of Crumley-Roberts Attorneys at Law, and the NC Industrial Hemp Association, led the sessions. Other speakers were Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc., David Schmitt, COO of Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC.

The Hemp University producers Aubree Arias, CEO and Founder of Ecofy, LLC and partner Rick Rainbolt, received stellar feedback from attendees on the quality of information presented. “We are very happy with the success of our second sold out Hemp University event. Our speakers provided immense value to our attendees who came in from over 14 states representing farmers, investors, land owners and entrepreneurs. We are helping pave the way for a profitable hemp industry in the U.S. with fellow visionaries and advocates,” commented Arias.

Three general sessions and four breakout sessions provided participants with a wealth of practical information on:

  • Capitalizing on the U.S. Hemp Revolution and Farming Hemp for Profit (presented by CEO of Hemp, Inc. Bruce Perlowin)
  • CBD Farming which included CBD Cultivars, Water & Soil Testing, Planting and Maintenance (presented by Dr. Michael Villa)

Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) executives are pleased to report on the progress of its industrial hemp processing facility in Spring Hope, North Carolina. According to David Schmitt, COO of Hemp, Inc.’s wholly owned subsidiary, Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC, the mechanical installation of the bale shredder was completed last week. “This system starts with a very large metal detection system to insure that there are no metal objects in any of the bales of kenaf or hemp. If the metal detector senses anything metallic, it will shut the system down. This is a safety feature to insure no metal goes into the milling system.”

Schmitt continued, “Next, the bales go up an incline conveyor into the shredder. Here the material is reduced in size to a 1-inch particle. It is then carried on a conveyor into the first stage of the milling operation. We have now started to run conduit and wiring to all of the electric motors on the shredding system. I am anticipating about two weeks to complete the electrical work. The milling operation will then be able to run in a fully automatic mode and we will begin processing the 18 million pounds of kenaf we have in inventory. We have been running the milling operation in a manual mode to confirm operation of all of the motors, sensors, filters, rotary valves, etc. All of the machinery is working properly.”

The company is working to get their hemp seed into North Carolina so that the first hemp crop can be planted in the next few weeks. “Our Nuaxon super critical CO2 extraction machine is scheduled to be delivered next week. We must then build a GMP compliant building to house the extraction unit as well as all of the post processing equipment. Once this is done, we will begin installation and commissioning of the extraction machine to begin producing CBDs,” said Schmitt.

The industrial hemp industry is burgeoning into one of the fastest growing industries in America, along with its distinct counterpart, marijuana. The American attitude on marijuana usage has been undergoing a seismic shift over the past couple of years as more states are legalizing it and realizing the economic benefits of legalization. Like its conservative cousin (industrial hemp), marijuana is big business with potentially billions of dollars to be made. Small growers, advocates, and big businesses alike are battling it out with the American justice system to bring marijuana mainstream.

Today, this massive growth curve and economic boom is for marijuana. Tomorrow, it will be for industrial hemp. While thousands of people have joined the lucrative marijuana business, only a handful are pioneering the industrial hemp industry. The following facts are indicators of what is to come for industrial hemp, putting Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) an easy 5 years ahead of the curve.

It’s been called “The Marijuana Revolution” and here are 25 interesting facts you may not have known:

• The North American marijuana market posted $6.7 billion in revenue in 2016, up 30% from the year before. U.S. legal sales could reach $50 billion by 2026. (source)
• Colorado has collected more than $150 million in taxes from legal marijuana sales, including nearly $50 million from a specific excise tax that directs funds to school construction projects. The first $40 million collected annually from the excise tax is earmarked for the school projects. (source)
• Fifty-seven percent of Americans supported legalizing marijuana in 2016 compared to just 52 percent of the country in 2014. Support for legal cannabis has been steadily increasing among Americans since 2006 when it reached 35 percent. (source)
• By 2020 it is estimated that country-wide legal marijuana sales will generate more annual revenue than the National Football League. (source)
• Cannabis is the largest cash crop in the United States, exceeding corn and wheat combined. (source)
• The first e-commerce transaction to take place on the Internet was the sale of cannabis. (source)
• In Colorado, medical marijuana dispensaries outnumber Starbucks locations three to one. (source)
• A pot smoker would theoretically have to consume nearly 1,500 pounds of marijuana within about fifteen minutes to induce a lethal response. (source)
• Research has found that Δ(9)-tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC (the main active component of marijuana), has a growth-inhibiting effect on the cancer cells in liver. (source)
• The word “canvas” is derived from the word “cannabis” because canvas used to be made from hemp fiber. The ropes, sails, and caulking of the Mayflower were all made from hemp fiber. (source)
• Marijuana seeds are a source of all amino acids. They are one of only a handful of substances that man can sustain off indefinitely with no other food and provide all known amino acids. (source) Hemp seeds are an excellent 3:1 balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which promote cardiovascular health and are high in gamma linolenic acid (GLA), an essential omega-6 fatty acid found in borage oil and egg yolks that has been proven to naturally balance hormones. (source)
• The University of Mississippi operates the United States’ only legal marijuana farm, on behalf of the government. (source)
• The difference between hemp and pot is a single genetic switch. In 2011, researchers from the University of Saskatchewan announced that they’d discovered the genetic alteration that allows psychoactive cannabis plants (Cannabis sativa) to give users a high (as compared to industrial hemp plants, which are no fun for smoking). Industrial hemp plants are the same species as marijuana plants, but they don’t produce a substance called tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA). This is the precursor to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive ingredient in pot. Hemp plants fail to produce this substance because they lack a gene that makes an enzyme to produce THCA, according to University of Saskatchewan biochemist Jon Page. In contrast, marijuana plants do produce THCA but don’t create much of a substance called cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), which occurs in abundance in hemp but competes with THCA for raw materials. Thus, hemp is rich in nonpsychoactive CBDA, while marijuana is chock full of mind-bending THC. (source)
• In 2016, researchers measured the levels of marijuana’s active ingredient, THC, in more than 38,600 samples of street marijuana seized by the Drug Enforcement Agency over 20 years. They found that the levels of THC rose from about 4 percent in 1995 to about 12 percent in 2014. (source)
• Both Thomas Jefferson and George Washington grew hemp on their plantations. The British crown even ordered the colonists to grow the plant. (source)
• Since 2015, marijuana has become the fastest growing industry in the U.S. If marijuana becomes legal in all 50 states, the industry will become larger than the organic food market. (source)
• During the temperance movement of the 1890s, marijuana was commonly recommended as a substitute for alcohol. The reason for this was that use of marijuana did not lead to domestic violence while alcohol abuse did. (source)
• Paraguay is believed to be the world’s largest producer of marijuana. (source)
• Twenty-three percent of people who visited Colorado in 2015 said the availability of marijuana positively influenced their decision to vacation in the state. (source)
• Since the legalization of marijuana in Colorado, highway fatalities have hit a historic low. (source)
• The first two drafts of the United States Declaration of Independence were written on paper made from hemp. (source) Bob Crumley, founder of Crumley-Roberts Attorneys at Law, and the NC Industrial Hemp Association says the first 5 Presidents of the United States were all hemp farmers. (source)
• The very first thing sold online was a bag of weed. It took place in 1971 at Stanford. Students used the internet, then Arpanet, to make the transaction. (source)
• Marijuana mimics your body chemistry. Marijuana’s active ingredient, THC, is shaped very closely and acts similarly to anandamide, which your body naturally produces. It is part of the endocannabinoid system that plays a role in regulating mood, sleep, and appetite. (source)
• Like people, animals with debilitating diseases can also get help from cannabis’ medical properties. Veterinarians have reported improved health in cats and dogs who suffer from anxiety and seizures that have been prescribed medical marijuana products like Canna-Pet and other non-psychoactive cannabis-based tinctures. (source)
• The Jamestown colony in 1619 passed legislation forcing settlers to grow cannabis. Hemp was a mainstream cash crop that was used to make rope, fabric and ship sails. It was literally against the law not to grow it. (source)

Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) said, “This migration from marijuana to hemp is prevalent everywhere I go. Most large hemp growers got their start by growing marijuana and just like us migrated from that sector into the new promising industrial hemp where the pioneers all have ‘First Mover’s Advantage’. I see this in every state I go to from California to Oregon to Nevada to Kentucky (but not North Carolina for some reason).”

As the marijuana industry continues to find its place and settle in mainstream America, so will industrial hemp. Senate Bill 1726, that was filed with the Florida state senate last month, has been placed on the senate’s Special Order Calendar for today. The bill authorizes the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to oversee the development of industrial hemp pilot projects for the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences at the University of Florida and the Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University and authorizes the universities to develop the pilot projects in partnership with public, nonprofit, and private entities.

The legalization of industrial hemp has a strong possibility of passing. Today, Floridians are aware of the need to diversify their state’s economy, thus Senate Bill 1726 and related House Bill 1217, have an excellent chance of passing.

Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) said, “It’s time for hemp to make its rightful return to the American landscape. Florida is another step closer to being the next state. As home to the largest, commercial, industrial hemp decorticating facility, Hemp, Inc. is also pleased to be a part of the industrial hemp movement and making America great again by making America hemp again.”

In other industrial hemp news, Missouri House Bill 170, as of 2 days ago, the executive session (senate) voted “do pass”. As previously reported on 4/12/17, HB 170 passed the state house with a 126 – 26 vote in favor of legalizing industrial hemp, yesterday, and has been passed to the state senate for the senate’s first read. HB 170 would allow those licensed by the Department of Agriculture to grow, harvest, and cultivate industrial hemp. According to a recent article, “supporters call the bill a development opportunity that could be a boon for farmers and help cultivate new business.” Under the proposal, people who want to grow hemp must apply with the Department of Agriculture and submit to a background check. Crops would also be subject to inspection.

The 900-member North Carolina Industrial Hemp Association (NCIHA) is a 501(c)(6) trade organization that represents all the stakeholders helping to build a thriving hemp industry in North Carolina. The NCIHA is responsible for the lobbying effort behind the passage of the North Carolina Industrial Hemp Pilot Program. Through education, dedication and fundraising, North Carolina can be accelerated to the forefront of global growth in Industrial and Medicinal Hemp. North Carolina can and should lead the country in cultivation, processing and support the consumption of hemp’s many beneficial products. Hemp was, for almost 200 years, a legal and fundamental crop in North Carolina and should be again.

Arizona. As reported by Hemp, Inc. on 2/22/17, Arizona State Legislature, SB1337, that was in review by the Senate has passed the Senate with a 26-4 with bipartisan support in the Senate and is now in the House for consideration. SB 1337, if passed, would legalize the production, processing, sale and distribution of industrial hemp for commercial purposes.

Whether it’s Alaska or Arizona, Hemp, Inc. is on the ground more often than not conducting business in those states. In Arizona, for example, Hemp, Inc. plans to grow up to 300 acres on a 500-acre Veteran Village Kins Community.

Aligned with Hemp, Inc.’s Triple Bottom Line approach, CEO Bruce Perlowin is exploring the possibilities of developing “Hemp Growing Veteran Village Kins Communities” in North Carolina and considering several other states similar to the 500-acre demonstration community being built in Arizona. He currently has 2,500 acres (and counting) of land in Kingman, Arizona where he’s building a veteran village on 500 of those acres that would consist of 160 lots of 2 1/2 acre parcels for Kins Domains (eco-villages). Each parcel would grow 1 acre of hemp as well as having organic gardens, natural beehives, a pond, a living fence and other elements that make up a Kins Domain.

An additional 100 acres of hemp will be grown in each one of these 500-acre communities. The revenue from fifty of those acres is used to support that community. The revenue from the other fifty acres of hemp will be used to purchase 2 additional 500-acre parcels of land, thus keeping up with the needs of a large number of veterans that exist now and in the future.

The eco-friendly “Veteran Village Kins Communities” were inspired by the book series, The Ringing Cedars of Russia ( Perlowin has since found a way to incorporate it into Hemp, Inc.’s strategy of building hemp growing, CBD-producing “communities” or “villages.” The first part of these “Veteran Village Kins Communities” is a “holistic healing and learning center” whose function in each community is obvious by the title. The prototype Veteran Village Kins Community in Arizona is expected to be completed by mid-2017.

Perlowin has been personally creating the Arizona “Veteran Village Kins Community” since 2013 as a solution to America’s multifaceted veteran problem. To date, forty-four percent of the homeless are veterans. Twelve percent of that group are combat woman veterans with children. Twenty-two veterans commit suicide EVERY DAY. Two million veterans are on food stamps. As for the future, 238,000 veterans are leaving the armed services every year.

From rehabilitation to job creation, Perlowin says this model presents a comprehensive holistic solution to those individuals that all Americans owe a great debt of gratitude towards… the American veterans. Perlowin expects this model to produce very lucrative revenue for Hemp, Inc., the veterans themselves and the local communities these Kins Communities are built near. “The infrastructure for ‘The Hemp Growing, CBD-Producing, Veteran-Village Kins Community,’ which takes time to build, is already in place in Arizona. I’ve been building this infrastructure since 2013 and it can be duplicated for any state,” says Perlowin.

Hemp is a durable natural fiber that is grown as a renewable source for raw materials that can be incorporated into thousands of products. It’s one of the oldest domesticated crops known to man. Hemp is used in nutritional food products such as hemp seeds, hemp hearts and hemp proteins, for humans. It is also used in building materials, paper, textiles, cordage, organic body care and other nutraceuticals, just to name a few. It has thousands of other known uses. A hemp crop requires half the water alfalfa uses and can be grown without the heavy use of pesticides. Farmers worldwide grow hemp commercially for fiber, seed, and oil for use in a variety of industrial and consumer products. The United States is the only developed nation that fails to cultivate industrial hemp as an economic crop on a large scale, according to the Congressional Resource Service. However, with rapidly changing laws and more states gravitating towards industrial hemp and passing an industrial hemp bill, that could change. Currently, the majority of hemp sold in the United States is imported from China and Canada, the world’s largest exporters of the industrial hemp crop.

Fuel. While the industrial, medicinal and commercial properties of hemp have been known to mankind for a very long time, its benefits to the environment have just been realized in recent years. One of the compelling things hemp offers is fuel. Reserves of petroleum are being depleted. Right now we are depleting our reserves of petroleum and buying it up from other countries. It would be nice if we could have a fuel source which was reusable and which we could grow right here, making us completely energy independent.

Industries in search of sustainable and eco-friendly processes are realizing hemp as a viable option. Hemp can provide an alternative, more efficient source of energy in the fuel industry. “The woody hemp plant is low in moisture; it dries quickly and is an efficient biomass source of methanol. The waste products produced by using hemp oil are a good source of ethanol. Both methanol and ethanol are produced from hemp through the efficient and economical process of thermo-chemical conversion. One acre of hemp yields 1,000 gallons or 3,785 liters of fuel. Hemp allows a lesser reliance on fossil fuels, which are non-renewable sources of energy and will not be able to meet the increasing global demands for long.

Petroleum fuel increases carbon monoxide in the atmosphere and contributes heavily to global warming and the greenhouse effect, which could lead to global catastrophe in the next 50 years if these trends continue. Do you want to find out if they are right, or do you want to grow the most cost effective and environmentally safe fuel source on the planet?

Using hemp as an energy and rotation crop would be a great step in the right direction.

The recently passed state budget eliminates a cap on New York’s prospering industrial hemp industry. That will allow more farmers to be able to research, grow, and process a crop that could turn into a million dollar business. The industrial hemp industry’s first hurdle is also the biggest misconception most people have about.

SUNY Morrisville Researcher Jennifer Gilbert Jenkins stated, “It is related to marijuana is what most people think. But industrial hemp does not have any THC in it.” It’s THC that creates the marijuana plant’s high. However, the biological connection between marijuana and hemp continues to create a roadblock for growing a crop that farmers cultivated in New York state more than a century ago.

So while there are still major Drug Enforcement Administration regulations in place regarding acquiring seed and transporting industrial hemp, the New York’s loosening of rules around the industry opens up farmers to a crop that has earnings potential. Processed hemp is already sold locally, valued for its high protein content. Jenkins stated, “You can walk into your Wegmans and buy a bag of hemp seeds just like you can buy a bag of sunflower seeds. You can buy hemp oil, you can buy hemp meal to use in shakes and smoothies.”

However, most of the hemp products sold in New York right now come from Canada and China. Jenkins, who’s researching the best ways to fertilize hemp in the field, says New York isn’t the only state that sees potential in industrial hemp. That may be spurring New York state to move quickly. Jenkins said, “The state who get the grows happening faster are going to benefit more.” They’re going to be out ahead.” New York state will be holding a hemp summit later this year in the Southern Tier to highlight the challenges and opportunities to grow the industry.

Some residents believe industrial hemp could be Alaska’s new cash crop with the passing of hemp legislation. Hemp advocate, Jack Bennett stated, “This is a soilless hemp growing medium, they are an industry overseas. Eighty percent of the micro greens grown in Europe and Asia are grown on these soilless hemp growing mediums.” According to Bennett there are around 2,500 products already made from hemp. The plant can be turned into paper, textiles, cement, building materials, and even biodegradable plastic.

New legislation is currently underway to make growing hemp legal in Alaska. This could open thousands of new opportunities for farmers in the last frontier. Bennett said, “In approximately a hundred day harvest on a hectare of land, it’s enough of the woody core of the hempstock that produces the insulation material, to build a thousand square foot shell, the cost is comparable to building with modern building materials.”

Bennett, who is building his own hemp home, says insulating with the plant will save thousands in heating costs. Bennett stated, “The savings is in your energy. You will lower your heating cost by at least seventy percent.” During the recent senate discussions, State Senator Shelly Hughes mentioned hemp’s therapeutic value. She said, “Not only farmers and ranchers in our state, but a number of other people were interested in developing, using oils to develop medications, lotions, soaps.”

A cannabinoid found in hemp, CBD, can have powerful anti–inflammatory, antiepileptic, antidepressant, sleep aid, and muscle relaxing effects. The proposal to legalize industrial hemp still needs to pass in the house and be approved by the governor. Bennett is optimistic of the outcome and believes hemp could be a game changer for Alaskans. Bennett said, “This plant is the tree of life that keeps on giving and giving. This plant’s fiber technology enables us to reverse our harm on earth, and at the end of the day, it enables us to make money. This is not just for our generations but our children’s future and the generation after that.”
