Hemp, Inc. Hosts the "Restore the Past, Grow the Future" Informational Session in Spring Hope, NC

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Feb 19, 2016) - Hemp, Inc.'s (OTC PINK: HEMP) wholly owned subsidiary, Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC and the North Carolina Industrial Hemp Association (NCIHA) hosted an informational session in coordination with the Hemp Road Trip in the Spring Hope, North Carolina decortication facility on February 15, 2016. The Hemp Road Trip, the traveling grassroots campaign, has been raising awareness of hemp and was able to educate the farmers and other interested parties on the advantages of growing hemp in North Carolina and the uses of hemp. Representative Jeff Collins (Republican -- District 25, representing Franklin and Nash Counties, NC) was also in attendance.

By hosting informational meetings and events such as this, Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) is helping to pave the way by creating a future robust and prolific industrial hemp industry in North Carolina and ultimately creating hundreds of jobs and expanding Hemp, Inc.'s business interests within the state. Hemp, Inc. sees its multipurpose hemp processing plant as a beginning to the revitalization of the entire textile industry in the Southeastern region of the United States by using hemp textiles as opposed to the dying cotton industry. With hemp textiles made-in-America, we're able to be the driving force behind this new clean green agricultural and industrial revolution.

"Even though we had severe weather conditions, we still had about 50 people in attendance who included farmers from as far south as Florida," said David Schmitt, COO of Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC. "After an approximate 90-minute presentation from the North Carolina Industrial Hemp Association (NCIHA), we opened the session to questions and answers. The session was very educational to all in attendance. We concluded the event with a tour of our decortication facility."

According to Schmitt, the majority of attendees were farmers specifically interested in growing hemp this year due to the reduced amount of tobacco they are able to grow. The farmers are in search of a new source of revenue. Many of the farmers looking to grow hemp in North Carolina were also able to garner more information on how NCIHA's newly formed NCIHC (the North Carolina Industrial Hemp Commission) can help the growing process.

The North Carolina Industrial Hemp Association (NCIHA) is a 501(c6) trade organization responsible for the lobbying effort that helped pass S.B 313. NCIHA not only acts as the legislative arm for hemp in the state of North Carolina, but also acts as the center for hemp education and commerce in North Carolina.
