Aside from the smokeable product we all know and love, the hemp plant has many promising opportunities in its future which are bringing in lots of new investors into the market.

Many mistake help for cannabis, and though it comes from the same plant it is undoubtedly a different product. Marijuana is grown to have THC (the main psychoactive component) at extremely high levels, while hemp only has trace amounts of around less than 0.3% of the hallucinogen. Because of its low THC content, you could smoke a pound of it and never feel any high. However, the seeds are still considered a Schedule I narcotic.

The plant is traditionally used in various ways such as textiles, ropes and more. This is due to its strength as a fabric. After around a month of growth, the hemp stalk is so sturdy that it is almost impossible to break. For culinary use, the seeds are pressed to produce an oil that can be processed into a flour from which products like pasta, bread, and many other possibilities can be created.

Hemp has a large appeal to be used as a food due to its potential in the market. Hemp is known as a superfood in the same category as flax and chia seeds, with long-term, sustainable play in the market. Products using hemp flour are not only some of the highest in protein, but they contain 20 amino acids, including nine that the body cannot product. In addition, it has extreme health benefits such as, immune boosting, weight suppressant, and an ability to lower blood pressure and cholesterol. It is also a big hit with vegetarians because it is high in the fatty acids omega-3 which is found in food like salmon.

For all these reasons and more, hemp seems to be on the rise with no show in sight of slowing down. With large potential on the market to fill the healthy food section, the possibilities hemp holds are endless.

“Since the software communication issues we are experiencing now were expected, software programming, which is part of the debugging process, is solving those issues. We expect to finish beta testing and debugging in about a week or two,” said Schmitt. Now that the hemp mill in Spring Hope, North Carolina is online and being debugged, Schmitt is in Brazil to start marketing and sales efforts in that country. He is scheduled to meet this week with several companies he previously did business with that are interested in Hemp, Inc.’s lost circulation materials (LCMs) and companies interested in using Hemp, Inc.’s fiber in the non-woven industry. Schmitt has also scheduled meetings with companies that he hopes to sell Hemp, Inc.’s CBDs to.

As previously mentioned, Hemp, Inc. is planting 17 acres of one strain of high-CBD clones between North Carolina and Colorado. Hemp, Inc.’s licensed farming associates in North Carolina have secured over 150 pounds of a different strain of CBD-rich hemp seeds, which are currently being planted in order to be harvested by September/October. This will be one of, or, the largest CBD hemp grows in the United States (approximately 550 acres total). “Our infrastructure is solid. We have our NuAxon Tech CO2 Supercritical extractor from NuAxon BioScience CBD Extractor at our industrial hemp plant in North Carolina and expecting to acquire a second extractor soon so we’ll be prepared to accommodate the industry’s expanding CBD market,” said Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. ( OTC PINK : HEMP ).

To see Hemp, Inc.’s video just posted entitled, “The Largest Hemp Mill in the Western Hemisphere is Now Online – It’s Alive”, click here.

“Additionally, we are in negotiations to joint venture with a huge 40,000 square-foot room Extractor, capable of producing 1,000 to 3,000 pounds of CBDs per day based on how many shifts we run, located less than one hour away from our plant in North Carolina,” continued Perlowin.

According to Forbes.com, the CBD market is expected to grow to a $2.1 billion market in consumer sales by 2020 with $450 million of those sales coming from hemp-based sources. That’s a 700% increase from 2016.

The Rocky Mount Telegram, a North Carolina news source, featured Perlowin, Schmitt, and Hemp, Inc. on the front page of yesterday’s Sunday paper, entitled “Spring Hope Firm Bets on Hemp” as Spring Hope’s hemp plant making hemp the next cash crop for local farmers. “Several workers Friday were planting the last five acres of the more than 550 acres of high-CBD clone industrial hemp plants at a farm in Franklin County. Perlowin said the high-CBD clone industrial hemp plants were being planted on farms in both Franklin and Nash counties.” To read the full article in The Rocky Mount Telegram, click here.

The Hemp University’s The Art and Science of CBD Greenhouse Growing held at Louisburg College this weekend was a huge success. A team of experts engaged attendees through the greenhouse and indoor growing process; from cultivation to harvest and from processing to distribution. Dr. Robert Bruck, Dean of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and Distinguished Professor of Environmental Science at Louisburg College, was the special guest who presented during this symposium. Half of the course took place at Hemp, Inc.’s 70,000 square-foot industrial Hemp Hub, in a 3,000 square-foot cloning room, whereby attendees had the opportunity to experience a more hands-on learning approach. A more detailed description of The Hemp University’s symposium will be issued this week.

Hemp, Inc. to Plant Over 550 Acres of CBD-Rich Hemp Plants

The company also plans on purchasing its second CBD Extractor this year. As announced in Hemp, Inc.’s last press release, the company has already purchased its first industrial NuAxon Tech CO2 Supercritical extractor from NuAxon BioScience, the manufacturer and producer of the world class, large capacity CO2 Supercritical Extraction equipment. However, with the industry’s expanding CBD market and ever-increasing consumer CBD sales over the past few years, executives feel it is in the best interest of its shareholders to acquire a second extractor to capture a solid, sizeable share of the market while still in the early growth stage.

The CBD market is expected to “grow to a $2.1 billion market in consumer sales by 2020 with $450 million of those sales coming from hemp-based sources. That’s a 700% increase from 2016. In 2015, the market for consumer sales of hemp-derived CBD products was $90 million, plus another $112 million in marijuana-derived CBD products which were sold through dispensaries — bringing a total CBD market to $202 million last year,” according to Forbes.com.

David Schmitt, COO of Hemp, Inc.’s wholly owned subsidiary, Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC (IHM), said they have been researching CBD extraction methods and manufacturers for the past 2 years, weighing the pros and cons of both. For its second CBD extractor purchase, executives found another manufacturer they feel would produce another superior CBD extractor that utilizes a different technology. Based on Hemp, Inc.’s research, building a CBD extractor takes extensive testing, product knowledge and continual process improvement to ensure a superior product that is held to the highest of standards. A collaborative design engineering team that ensures the quality of each component, coupled with a customizable approach, guarantees the extractor will meet all of Hemp, Inc.’s specifications and standards.

Schmitt expects both extractors to have optimized production levels. “The CO2 Supercritical Extractor that is currently in-house is expected to be assembled over the next 3 months. Once assembled, we will be ready to process and extract CBD oil,” said Schmitt.

Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. ( OTC PINK : HEMP ) said, “The CBD market has been growing by leaps and bounds. CBD’s medicinal qualities have been making waves across America. Residents in states that have not legalized medical marijuana are finding that CBDs from hemp are an alternative to pharmaceutical drugs to treat debilitating medical conditions. There have been recent studies showing CBDs are preferred over addicting pharmaceutical drugs.”

Earlier this year, the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) released a comprehensive report regarding cannabis’ health benefits. The study confirmed substantial evidence that cannabis is useful in the treatment of some common and severe medical ailments such as chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, and chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. It was also interesting to note that pharmaceutical companies have started creating cannabis-like drugs for multiple sclerosis, nausea and vomiting. While the pharmaceutical alternative, CBD, is viewed as a more appealing option, it is often expensive and not readily available to patients.

The pharmaceutical choices, such as prescribed opioid pain medications, are addictive and users are at high risk of fatal overdose.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the part of the cannabis plant that has significant medical benefits, but does not make people feel “high” and can even counteract the psychoactivity of THC (that part that does make people feel “high”). Since CBDs are non-psychoactive, it’s an appealing option for medical patients seeking alternative ways to relieve conditions such as inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, and spasms, without disconcerting feelings of lethargy.

American Green Completes Joint Venture with Hempful Farms

Chris Martin, who created Hempful Farms, built a company dedicated to producing hemp products made of only the best ingredients available after he and his family noticed improvements to their health from the use of CBD products. Extracted from the cannabis plant, cannabidiol (CBD) has wide potential and ever-increasing recognition as a medical treatment. On May 25, 2017 the New England Journal of Medicine published results from a peer-reviewed double-blind placebo-controlled trial showing successful use in the treatment of Dravet Syndrome, a complex childhood epilepsy disorder that is associated with drug-resistant seizures and a high mortality rate. (http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa1611618) Unlike THC found in marijuana, CBD does not create the psychoactive effects that can produce the “high” one experiences when consumed for that purpose. Martin’s rottweiler, Sarge, was diagnosed with hip dysplasia that caused him to limp. Without hope for another treatment, Martin had the idea of treating Sarge’s condition with the same CBD products he was using. The positive results led to the birth of Paw Puddy, a product line geared toward helping pets. Chris and Andrea Martin have been making their hemp-infused Paw Puddy products in limited space; however, the popularity of their products dictates they expand their facilities immediately in order to keep up with demand. Hempful Farms’ venture with American Green will make that happen.

“We’ve been working toward this in some way for over two decades. It’s great to finally have a partner like American Green who we can work with to get to the next level. Our demand is already beyond our current ability to fulfill because our products are so popular with current customers. Now we can increase supply and service even more people with confidence. The Paw Puddy line (and our other products) should to be enjoyed by anyone and everyone who needs them. Today marks the day we can sincerely begin to speed up achieving that goal,” commented Chris Martin.

“We’ve had a deep appreciation for CBD and the hope it holds for people and their pets for several years. Expanding American Green’s product line has always been part of ERBB’s plan and this joint venture is an excellent beginning of that expansion,” said David Gwyther, Chairman and acting president at American Green. “We look forward to the day when yet-undiscovered cannabinoid solutions to a healthy life join CBD as a natural way of combatting the health challenges experienced by people and their pets. Working with Chris, Andi and the team at Hempful Farms to offer their products is a day we have long awaited,” concluded Mr. Gwyther.

Hemp, Inc. Receives NuAxon Super Critical CO2 Hemp Extractor at Plant in North Carolina

Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) executives are pleased to announce that its CO2 Supercritical Extraction equipment has been delivered to its industrial hemp processing plant in Spring Hope, North Carolina. The company purchased the industrial NuAxon Tech CO2 Supercritical extractor from NuAxon BioScience, manufacturer and the producer of the world class, large capacity CO2 Supercritical Extraction equipment, two months ago through a joint venture with Freedom Leaf, Inc. (OTCQB: FRLF), NuAxon’s global exclusive distributor for the cannabis/hemp industry.

The CO2 Supercritical extractor is set to be installed over the next 90 days and ready to process and extract CBD shortly thereafter under the supervision of NuAxon Tech CEO, Jason Edwards. Clifford J Perry, CEO of Freedom Leaf, Inc. added, “We believe that this will be our first of many NuAxon Tech Industrial CO2 Extractors to be sold, installed and operated in the US and globally.”

Freedom Leaf is also supplying 2,000 pounds of EU certified Hemp stock for extraction from its Licensee, Freedom Leaf Iberia, based in Elche, Spain.

Mr. Federico Pando Huerta, CEO of Freedom Leaf Iberia has spent many years researching and working with the finest agricultural researchers, farmers, as well as governmental agencies to insure that our industrial hemp is of the highest quality and meets the legal standards of Spain and qualifies for export.

Freedom Leaf CEO Clifford Perry explained, “We expect to extract approximately 10% or 200 pounds of high quality CBD to divide equally and sell in this joint venture that has the potential to produce a significant amount of revenue for both of our public companies.”

Freedom Leaf USA and Iberia will be expanding their farming capacities in the coming year and will also be continuing their research and development of other rare cannabinols along with producing hemp and seed stock to be cultivated in Spain and sold for export worldwide wherever it is legal.

The large capacity CO2 Supercritical Extraction unit is, according to reps, one of the best quality, most efficient and most reputable, extraction equipment on the market today. Its manufacturer, NuAxon BioScience, has 17 years of experience in extraction process technology which provides a huge advantage for Hemp, Inc. for having the best method of extracting therapeutic compounds from a plant.

According to the NuAxon website, when CO2 is captured and compressed it becomes a lipophilic solvent. It is exceptional and efficient at retrieving the oils and fats from plants, some herbal extractions are as concentrated as 250 to 1.” With proprietary “high flow rate pump” reducing processing time to “as low as 90 minutes per batch”, NuAxon’s CO2 Supercritical Extraction unit can deliver a much higher output than competitive brands.

Generally, the supercritical CO2 method produces a safe, potent end product for its users. By using innovative, technological advances in CO2 extraction, Hemp, Inc. stands to gain a large share of the CBD and industrial hemp market to satisfy end users.

This extractor will also be showcased during the Hemp, Inc. facility tour portion of the monthly Hemp University educational symposiums, making it a perfect place to demonstrate and market the NuAxon Tech CO2 Supercritical high capacity extractors to those interested in purchasing one. “This is the beginning and a part of building the extraction infrastructure for the industrial hemp industry,” said CEO of Hemp, Inc. Bruce Perlowin.

David Schmitt, COO of Hemp, Inc.’s wholly owned subsidiary, Industrial Hemp Manufacturing (IHM), says he and Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) have already started searching for their second and third extraction units that utilize a different technology to gain an even bigger advantage in the marketplace. Schmitt said, “The company has also purchased a pre-fabricated ‘clean room’ building that will go inside of our 70,000 square foot multi-purpose industrial hemp processing facility. The building will house the first of our CBD extraction units. We expect delivery in 4 weeks. This building is superior in that it is even suitable for food grade products.” Again, this is part of creating the extraction infrastructure for the industrial hemp industry and perfect course material for The Hemp University.

Hemp, Inc. will also have its first hemp harvest this fall in North Carolina and in Colorado, which is part of our farming infrastructure for the industrial hemp industry.

Perlowin also updates shareholders on the progress of the company’s decortication facility. To date, according to Perlowin, all of the wiring has been completed on the mill portion of the hemp decorticator. Executives expect to receive the final piece, which is a disconnect switch, that will connect the power to feed the 200-horse power motor on the recently installed grinder. The grinder is what feeds the hammer mill. “We expected the disconnect switch to be shipped last Tuesday. However, it was on backorder with General Electric so it was shipped a week later than we expected. Once that arrives, in 3 or 4 days, we will install it, finish the last of the wiring, and program all the mill components to communicate with each other. We’ll then begin beta testing everything and processing and bagging the 18,000,000+ pounds of Kenaf we have on-site and in storage, into our first two products… LCMs and Spill-Be-Gone.

ABOUT THE “HEMP GROWING, CBD PRODUCING VETERAN VILLAGE KINS COMMUNITIES”
Aligned with Hemp, Inc.’s Triple Bottom Line approach, CEO Bruce Perlowin is exploring the possibilities of developing “Hemp Growing, CBD Producing Veteran Village Kins Communities” in North Carolina, Florida, Kentucky and several other states similar to the 500-acre demonstration community being built in Arizona. He currently has 4,500 acres (and counting) of land north of 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 which will also include a 100,000 square-foot hemp (CBD) processing facility. 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 (https://www.ringingcedars.com). 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 to late 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 America’s 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, according to Dannion Brinkley, Chairman of the Twilight Brigrade.

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.

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.

  • Rules and Regulations (presented by David Schmitt)
  • Future and Legal Landscape of Hemp (presented by Bob Crumley)
  • Making America Hemp Again (presented by CEO of Hemp, Inc. Bruce Perlowin)

Networking opportunities abounded throughout the day amongst fellow landowners, farmers, and industry leaders. One attendee commented that he learned more about farming industrial hemp from Hemp, Inc.’s Hemp University than all the other events he attended combined. Another attendee said The Hemp University’s Farming Hemp for Profit educational symposium was “the best ever”. After the sessions, attendees had the opportunity to visit Hemp, Inc.’s 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 50+ attendees who toured the plant were impressed with its progress and potential.

Schmitt said, “This event was another success. Chocked full of valuable information for any landowner or farmer interested in growing hemp. The delivery was exceptional and we will continue to facilitate this type of information sharing. Our team did an awesome job, going above and beyond the call of duty.”

“It was a great weekend with an awesome team. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to get the hemp message out there. It is very rewarding to be playing a part in the hemp revolution,” said Dr. Michael Villa. Bill Billings also stressed how pleased he was with the outcome of the event.

“This is our second successful monthly industrial hemp educational symposium. Based on my observation, The Hemp University’s educational platform facilitates a genuine camaraderie among the participants and industry experts as information is shared and exchanged,” commented Perlowin. “We are definitely looking forward to the next one.”

According to Rick Rainbolt, who also emceed, the company has an exclusive CBD Boot Camp in the works. “We are excited to announce our upcoming events including our Colorado CBD Boot Camp. This exclusive event, reserved for only eight participants, is an opportunity to get hands-on experience in a 38,000 square-foot indoor grow facility that has thousands of CBD clones growing. Nothing can replace getting first-hand experience.”

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, FoundersHemp.com 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.

ABOUT NORTH CAROLINA INDUSTRIAL HEMP ASSOCIATION
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.

IN THE NEWS: HEMP ON TRACK FOR LEGALIZATION
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.

ABOUT THE “HEMP GROWING VETERAN VILLAGE KINS COMMUNITIES”
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 (https://www.ringingcedars.com). 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.

WHAT IS HEMP?
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.

HOW HEMP CAN CHANGE THE WORLD
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.
