Las Vegas, NV – (NewMediaWire) – March 18, 2020 – Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP), a global leader in the industrial hemp industry with bi-coastal processing centers, including the largest multipurpose industrial hemp processing facility in Spring Hope, NC, a state-of the art local processing center in Southern Oregon, a 500-acre hemp growing Veteran Village Kins Community in Golden Valley, Arizona, two model “Small Family Hemp Farms” in North Carolina and Arizona, and a pre-roll blending manufacturing facility in Las Vegas, NV, and The King of Hemp StoreTM, a 5,000 square-foot retail location in Kingman, Arizona, announced today that it has fortified its commitment to supporting local hemp farmers, the American hemp industry, and local economies through its ever-expanding business ventures and operations.
“Since Hemp, Inc.’s inception, we have been committed to bringing back the small American family farm to the nation’s landscape, creating jobs locally, and supporting local businesses. These directives are central to our foundation and are reflected throughout the scope of our business ventures – from our King of Hemp(TM) pre-rolls to the Veteran Village Kins Community Arizona, Inc.,” said Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. “When you make a purchase from Hemp, Inc., you are not only supporting the small American hemp farmer and the American hemp industry, but you are also supporting American laborers and the small American manufacturers in ancillary industries. We are proud to lead by example and show how the Hemp Revolution will be mostly American Made.”
The Company sources its supplies for its King of Hemp(TM) pre-roll line from a U.S.-owned and -based manufacturing company, and recently purchased 300,000 tubes for its pre-rolls’ packaging. Additionally, advertising materials such as banners for Hemp, Inc.’s Kins Community in Kingman, Arizona, and educational materials such as brochures for the Company’s recently announced Hempathon are all sourced from American companies.
Hemp, Inc.’s commitment to domestic products and partnerships can also be seen in the Company’s Southern Oregon hemp operation. The Company utilizes American-made tractors, discs, planters, vehicles and plows to service its cultivation sites and Local Processing Center (LPC). The same applies for the tractors, farming equipment, the heavy duty construction equipment and other vehicles purchased to build the Veteran Village Kins Community Arizona. It is all American made, including the 7 geodesic domes on the Veteran Village Kins Community property. The geodesic domes were made by Pacific Domes, an Ashland, Oregon-based company.
In addition, the majority of Hemp, Inc. employees are from the local communities in which the Company operates. The employees are paid the prevailing wage that is above minimum wage.
Furthermore, Hemp, Inc. is featuring the American-designed, American-made clothing line, Hemp Blue which prides itself in providing premium hemp and denim blends made with love in Los Angeles, CA. Hemp Blue represents a conscious, decision-driven lifestyle and stands for responsible consumption and sustainable resources. The King of Hemp StoreTM will be well-stocked with Hemp Blue and other premium hemp clothing collections.
Additionally, wood being used on the floor and walls of The King of Hemp StoreTM were manufactured by North Cal Wood Products, Inc., a small American business based in Ukiah, CA. North Cal offers a wide variety of reclaimed domestic and tropical woods.
Perlowin also noted other sections of the store will use hemp wood from Fibonacci LLC, another Made-in-America company, which opened the first HempWood factory in Murray, Kentucky. “We’re proud to use their wood in our store and we’re looking forward to becoming a reseller for HempWood products soon,” says Perlowin.
HempWood aims to be a catalyst for a wave of innovation consumed by the idea that cultural shifts toward a more sustainable way of living is no longer a luxury, but a requirement.
“We cherish diversity and supporting American communities, and this can be seen in our hiring practices nationwide,” Perlowin added. “Our employees range in age from college students to the elderly, and come from all walks of life. The hemp movement is an inclusive one, and while we oversee our operations in North Carolina, Arizona, Oregon and Nevada, we continue to scout new locations to build new local processing centers for communities who need the infrastructure and knowledgeable support our team provides.”
The U.S. hemp market continues to heat up for a variety of reasons, especially as the general populace continues to better understand the difference between cannabis as marijuana and cannabis as hemp, as well as the benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) and other cannabinoids derived from cannabis. In addition, Chinese hemp producers and China’s hemp industry is only now starting to diversify from its industrial hemp products into consumer hemp products, positioning many U.S. hemp producers and extractors ahead of their Chinese competitors, according to Cannabis Business Executive.
The Cannabis Business Executive’s (CBE) mission is to provide cannabis industry leaders with utilitarian information to help them run their businesses successfully and advance the cannabis industry by helping its leaders stay abreast of emerging trends that impact their long-term success in the industry. CBE distinguishes itself as the premier authority by developing original content, aggregating news content and partnering with recognized industry experts to provide thought-provoking feature articles, news, opinions and insights, events and e-media. CBE provides its readers with business intelligence and the knowledge they need to succeed in new and changing markets.
It’s no surprise Hemp, Inc. revenues are flowing in from every direction. After building a broad-based multi-state U.S. infrastructure over the last 10 years, Perlowin believes this year, 2020, will be the biggest year of revenues for Hemp, Inc. as shown below:
- DrillwallTM – Their wholly owned subsidiary, Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC (IHM) in North Carolina is now fulfilling a $1 million dollar sales agreement for its DrillWall(TM), their proprietary kenaf-hemp blend natural Loss Circulation Material (LCM) product for the oil and gas well drilling industries. The Company has executed a sales agreement to sell $1 million worth of DrillWall(TM) over the course of one year. (Read the full press release here.)
- The King of Hemp Store(TM) – Hemp, Inc. also had a soft launch of The King of Hemp Store(TM), its flagship, brick-and-mortar retail store in Kingman, Arizona, last month. The store is expected to officially open next month. According to executives, The King of Hemp Store will carry as hemp shirts, pants, hemp denim jeans, jackets, backpacks, purses, handbags, topicals, shampoos, conditioners and a variety of cannabidiol (CBD) and CBG products such as flower. A lounge area in which community members can learn more about hemp, in a relaxing setting, is also planned as part of the store. The proceeds from the sale of its products will go to help children, the homeless and veterans. The plan is to utilize money earned at the store to create activities and subsequent venues for the children of Kingman, Golden Valley, and Dolan Springs, Arizona.

- King of HempTM Pre-Rolls – Hemp, Inc.’s King of HempTM pre-rolls are also bringing in revenue for the company. The much anticipated King of HempTM pre-roll line didn’t disappoint once it launched as distributors reported quick sales in a matter of hours after stocking the high-quality CBD smokeables. One distributor, in particular, sold almost 300 King of HempTM pre-rolls in a week after listing it on its website, www.naturalexposurecbd.com, and noticed a huge interest for autographed King of Hemp pre-rolls from the King of Hemp himself, Bruce Perlowin. Based on the interest, Perlowin expects the current limited edition (signed and numbered) to be extremely valuable in the collector’s market in the future. The Company is also transitioning from the current packaging to hemp packaging.
Derived from one of the top selling cultivars on the market, Pre-98 OG Bubba Kush, the King of HempTM pre-rolls are already positioned to corner the market as one of the best tasting for hemp consumption and is expected to be a massive revenue generator for the company. (To read the full release, click here.)
- Pre-98 OG Bubba Kush – The Pre-98 OG Bubba Kush is Hemp, Inc.’s top-shelf CBD flower sourced from certified growers to ensure high CBD content, eye-popping aesthetics, and clean genetics. The company has made 10,000 lbs. of Pre-98 OG Bubba Kush available for sale at a wholesale price ranging from $500 to $800 per pound and that is just a small percentage of the Company’s Oregon grow output. The rest of the grow will be used for the King of HempTM pre-rolls which is expected to earn the Company more than three times as much money as selling it wholesale. (For those interested in purchasing the company’s hemp buds, email firstname.lastname@example.org.)
- The Great American Hempathon – The Company’s first ever grow contest recently opened enrollment and is scheduled to take place during the first growing season of 2020, which begins this month, and includes planting, maintaining, harvesting, and processing. Hemp growers will demonstrate their skill and share in the $50,000 prize money. Each team is responsible for installing irrigation systems, preparing the soil, and maintaining the grow operation.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEMP AND MARIJUANA
Hemp is completely different from marijuana in its function, cultivation and application. In cultivating marijuana, the plants are spaced far apart, and the male plants are destroyed to assure that they cannot seed the female plants, which would result in undesirable, less potent and less marketable, seeded marijuana buds. Hemp, on the other hand, is planted close together and commonly hermaphrodites, which creates an abundance of seeds, the main component of Hemp foods and supplements. The Hemp stalks are processed and used for fiber, composite, and other hemp based end products.
Hemp is used in variety of other applications that marijuana couldn’t possibly be used in. These include healthy dietary supplements, skin products, clothing, and accessories. Overall, hemp is known to have over 25,000 possible applications. Hemp products such as Hemp Milk, Hemp Cereal, and Hemp Oil are used by consumers every day.

HOW HEMP CAN CHANGE THE WORLD
Fiber – Hemp fiber can be used to make fabrics and textiles, rope and paper. The word ‘canvas’ actually derives from the word cannabis.
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. With reserves of petroleum being depleted, 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.
Food – Hemp seeds are very nutritious and were first thought to be eaten by the Ancient Chinese and Indians. Hemp seeds have a nutty taste and can be eaten raw, ground up, sprouted, or made into dried sprout powder. Hemp seeds also contain a very beneficial oil that is high in unsaturated fatty acids, including an optimal 1:4 ratio of omega-3 to 6.
Building Material – Hemp can be made into a variety of building materials. These include concrete-like blocks called ‘hempcrete’, biodegradable plastics, and wood replacements. These materials have been used in the manufacture of many things, including electronics, cars and houses. In fact, the first American home made of hemp-based materials was completed in August 2010 in Asheville, North Carolina.
Biofuel – Remarkably, the oil from hemp seeds and stalks can also be made into biofuels such as
Biodiesel — sometimes known as ‘hempoline’. While this biofuel can be used to power engines, it does take quite a lot of raw material to produce a substantial amount.
