Indie Growers Association Provides Industry Update and Announces Letter of Intent

CARSON CITY, NEVADA–(Marketwired – Dec 16, 2014) – Indie Growers Association (UPOT) continues to build out its business of leasing land, greenhouses and warehouse space to licensed growers in the legal marijuana business. The Company believes that the industry is poised for exponential growth.

A Wall Street Journal article published earlier this year stated that leasing to marijuana producers is a “growth” industry because of the “… difficulties legal marijuana entrepreneurs face when trying to find space.” A Denver Post article published around the same time supports this evaluation of the industry, noting that marijuana growing space in Denver is in very short supply.

The Company has first-hand experience with the demand for suitable growing space as its wholly owned operating subsidiary, River Ridge Sunshine Farms LLC, has recently signed yet another Letter of Intent to lease a parcel at its Prosser, Washington property. Dennis Boyle, a licensed medical grower from Walla Walla, intends for his company, Curative LLC, to sign a definitive lease agreement for a 10 year renewable lease of farm land and supporting infrastructure from River Ridge Sunshine Farms.

Each tenant on the property will generate approximately $200,000 per month in lease payments. With one tenant already under lease and 3 potential tenants under a Letter of Intent, the company could generate annual income of over 9 Million dollars if their licensees are approved and production begins.

In order to facilitate the demand for growing space, the Company plans to immediately raise $2 million in a private placement so it can begin construction as quickly as possible for those who have already stated their intent to lease land and buildings from River Ridge Sunshine Farms. It intends to raise another $15 million for construction over the long term to attract more growers to the property. With 14 parcels, all of which can accommodate at least one Tier 3 grower, the revenue potential is over $30 Million per year, and even higher if more than one grower can be accommodated on each parcel.

The Company will keep shareholders updated as new developments arise.

About River Ridge Sunshine Farms LLC

River Ridge Sunshine Farms LLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of Indie Growers Association. It holds a 10 year, renewable lease on a 14 parcel agricultural property in Prosser, Washington. One of the parcels has already been subleased to a licensed medical marijuana grower who is awaiting final approval of its Tier 3 license. Three additional parcels have now been reserved by other growers under Letters of Intent. River Ridge Sunshine Farms LLC intends to sublease all of the parcels to licensed marijuana growers.

Hemp, Inc. to Sponsor 1st Annual Ascent Expo in Los Angeles, CA for the “Cultural Creatives”

LAS VEGAS, Dec. 16, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hemp, Inc. (HEMP) announced today that it is one of the major sponsors of the 1st Annual “Cultural Creatives” Ascent Expo in Los Angeles, CA, February 27 — March 1, 2015 which will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center. By assembling “Cultural Creatives” from the entertainment industry, corporate America, and mainstream media, the Ascent Expo‘s mission is to “enjoy, learn, co-create successful ventures, cooperate in facilitating commerce, and empower each other toward a higher consciousness in solving the planet’s most important social, environmental and human rights issues.”

“Hemp, Inc. is proud to continue our commitment to corporate consciousness, environmentalism, philanthropy and personal empowerment through our sponsorship of the 2015 Ascent Expo,” says Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. “This is the 1st Annual Ascent Expo and we anticipate many new innovative products and successful joint ventures. The Industrial Hemp and Medical Marijuana industries are definitely one of the subsets of the ‘Cultural Creatives’ movement which we will be showcasing in the ‘Hemp Zone’ at the Expo.”

According to executives with eWorld Companies, Inc. (EWRC), “The Ascent Expo will be an extravagant 3-day event of ‘Cultural Creatives’ showcasing cutting-edge, forward-thinking companies, individuals and non-profit organizations committed to the principles of positive psychology and applying these principles into everyday lives and activities, with a wide range of premium products and services.” eWorld Companies, Inc. (EWRC), the producer of the event, expects this “meeting of the creative minds” event to draw in over 400 exhibitors… with a 40-ft red carpet for interviews. The centerstage for A-list musical talent is expected to draw in thousands alone.

The extravagant event for Cultural Creatives‘ (also known as the country’s “forward-thinkers” and innovators who are globally aware, very green conscious and empowered philanthropists) primary goal is to help other business people. According to Ashkan Tabibnia, the event’s social media manager, powerful marketing strategies have been implemented to bring in tens of thousands of attendees. The expo is expected to attract over 20,000 professionals and over 400 exhibiting companies covering over 140,000 net square feet of exhibit space in the LA Convention Center.

Hemp, Inc., as one of the major sponsors, will function as the umbrella organization for theIndustrial Hemp and Medical Marijuana Consulting Company (IHMMCC) affiliates which include Dewmar International (DEWM), Liberated Energy (LIBE), Resource Ventures (REVI), Global Links (GLCO), VaporBrands International (VAPR), National Scientific Corp. (NSCT), and PPJ Enterprise (PPJE). North Cal Wood Products, Inc., purveyors of sustainable reclaimed lumber, will also be in attendance.

According to Perlowin, he plans to use the Ascent Expo to not only support the activities of these affiliates but to also initiate an exchange of ideas to form effective business relationships between and among both their own affiliates and other like-minded companies and organizations that will be in the Ascent Expo section dedicated to the new Industrial Hemp and Medical Marijuana industries.

The “Hemp Zone” will include, but will not be limited to, those mentioned above. As a major sponsor, Hemp, Inc. (HEMP) will also play a key role in the marketing and promotional activities leading up to the Ascent Expo including webinars and think tanks throughout the course of the event.

Perlowin will also highlight recent news and updates on Hemp, Inc.’s decortication plant in the “Hemp Zone” during the Ascent Expo. “Cultural Creatives” will get a chance to learn first-hand about the automated Temafa decortication line which will be used to process raw hemp and kenaf for the American farmers. The facility in Spring Hope, North Carolina that houses the commercial Temafa decortication line is the only one of its scale in North America.

The highly coveted commerical equipment would, according to Perlowin, take at least 2 years, minimum, to duplicate. “I am committed to the American farmers in producing a new clean green American Agricultural and Industrial Revolution from hemp and I’m looking forward to sharing this at the 1st Annual Ascent Expo in California.”

While North Carolina has not yet legalized hemp, the company while waiting for this to occur, will process Kenaf for the automotive, oil, textile, paper and other industries. (Kenaf, or Hibiscus cannabinus which is a plant in the Malvaceae family is a substance similar to Hemp, often called “Ambari Hemp” and “Deccan Hemp”.)

“Hemp, Inc.’s (HEMP) goal is to be the leading processor of processed and raw hemp materials when it becomes legal in North Carolina,” said Perlowin. There are also plans of building a GMP compliant facility for the extraction of CBDs from hemp. Perlowin’s migration strategy of processing Kenaf first is expected to put Hemp, Inc. years ahead in the hemp processing industry.

According to company executives, shareholders will see more of Hemp, Inc.’s core business develop. As the decortication facility in North Carolina continues to progress through the end of 2014 and through the first quarter of 2015 and on, Hemp, Inc. executives are eagerly looking forward to bringing more hemp-based clean, green solutions to the American people. “We constantly strive to deliver value to our shareholders and we believe our efforts will position us to do just that over the long term.”

The synergistic expo will put Hemp, Inc. one step further to its goal. Ascentexpo.com describes the expo as “Creative Capitalism” where conscious-oriented people connect through commerce, working and living in a way that is conscious of other people, conscious of the environment and cultures, and mending those traits in everyday business practices.

To reserve a booth at the 2015 Ascent Expo in Los Angeles, California, contact Ashley Leyva at (800) 568-EXPO.

Update on Hemp, Inc.’s Decortication Plant

NTRR: Decision to Allow Cannabis Cultivation and Sales on Indian Reservations Could Lead to More Explosive Growth in Multi-Billion-Dollar U.S. Cannabis Industry

TAMPA, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–

Neutra Corp. (NTRR) and other innovators working to serve the needs of the fast-growing U.S. cannabis industry received more good news last week when the Department of Justice announced that it would allow Native American tribes to cultivate and sell cannabis on their reservations—even in states where the plant remains outlawed. It’s a move many experts believe could trigger a massive new wave of growth in an industry forecast to be worth as much as $35 billion by 2020.

“There are more than 300 reservations in 30 states across the country,” said NTRR CEO Chris Brown. “If even a small percentage of these tribal nations elect to make cannabis available on their lands, access to the medicinal herb could soon be no more than a short car trip away for broad swaths of the United States.”

“More importantly, it should become more and more difficult for the federal government to justify cannabis’ status as a Schedule 1 drug if millions of Americans can purchase it safely and responsibly at a neighborhood dispensary or a nearby reservation,” he added.

Tribes will have to follow the same federal guidelines for legalizing the plant as the four states that have already elected to do so, including preventing distribution to minors and ensuring that proceeds do not go to gangs or cartels.

NTRR is preparing for the phenomenal growth predicted to come in the U.S. cannabis industry by working to deliver innovative new products to serve the rapidly expanding marketplace. Earlier this year, NTRR acquired Diamond Anvil Designs, a cutting-edge developer of smoke-free nutraceutical delivery systems that can be adapted to deliver a variety of substances, including dry herbs, oils and waxes. The lightweight, portable vapor pen represents a major breakthrough in vaporization technology thanks to customizable power levels, multi-substance vaporization capacity and best-in-class durability.

Surna Selected to Present at Investor-Focused Cannabis Investor Webcast

Boulder, CO / ACCESSWIRE / December 16, 2014 / Surna Inc. (SRNA), an engineering, manufacturing, and installation Company specializing, where state law permits, in commercial indoor cannabis cultivation technology, has been selected to participate in the Cannabis Investor Webcast on December 18, 2014, at 11:00 a.m. EST. Surna CEO Tom Bollich will speak live and detail the Company’s engineering and tech-based approach to cannabis cultivation.

“This webcast is a great opportunity for our shareholders to gain a better understanding of the technology our engineering team has developed, as well as where Surna is heading. We believe our Company and our disruptive technology are well positioned to advance the entire cannabis industry,” said Bollich. “Cannabis cultivation is becoming increasingly technical, so Surna has assembled some very ambitious engineers and put them to work under one roof. Our engineering collective is motivated, diverse and capable of creating technologies that are years ahead of their time.”

Surna’s keystone product, a water-cooled climate control system, is an energy efficient alternative to traditional HVAC. In Q1 2015, Surna will release its water-cooled reflector, which will offer up to 50% energy savings on climate control, when paired with Surna’s chiller. Behind lighting, climate control is the second largest energy cost in a grow operation.

The webcast will include presentations and Q&A sessions from Surna and nine additional private and public cannabis related companies including Viridian Capital and Research and Lexaria Corp. over the course of the day. Interested cannabis investors can register for the webcast at no charge at www.cannawebcast.com.

This engineering advantage provides the Company with financial access to the entire cannabis economy. Surna continuously creates highly adaptive technology and software that satisfies the numerous, highly-specific and essential demands of the cannabis industry. Because cannabis remains federally illegal, Surna’s operations exclude the production or sale of marijuana. Interested parties are advised to read Surna’s Statement About Cannabis Markets below.

Safe Harbor Statement

This news release contains statements that involve expectations, plans or intentions (such as those relating to future business or financial results, new features or services, or management strategies) and other factors discussed from time to time in the Company’s Securities and Exchange Commission filings. These statements are forward-looking and are subject to risks and uncertainties, so actual results may vary materially. You can identify these forward-looking statements by words such as “may,” “should,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “intend,” “plan” and other similar expressions. Our actual results, such as the Company’s ability to finance, complete and consolidate acquisition of IP, assets and operating companies, could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of certain factors not within the control of the company such as a result of various factors, including future economic, competitive, regulatory, and market conditions. The company cautions readers not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made. The company disclaims any obligation subsequently to revise any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of such statements or to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events.

Statement About Cannabis Markets

The use, possession, cultivation, and distribution of cannabis is prohibited by federal law. This includes medical and recreational marijuana. Although certain states have legalized medical and recreational cannabis, companies and individuals involved in the sector are still at risk of being prosecuted by federal authorities. Further, the landscape in the cannabis industry changes rapidly. What was the law last week is not the law today and what is the law today may not be the law next week. This means that at any time the city, county, or state where cannabis is permitted can change the current laws and/or the federal government can supersede those laws and take prosecutorial action. Given the uncertain legal nature of the cannabis industry, it is imperative that investors understand that the cannabis industry is a high risk investment. A change in the current laws or enforcement policy can negatively affect the status and operation of our business, require additional fees, stricter operational guidelines and unanticipated shut downs.
