Hemp, Inc.'s Truck Scale Purchased, Transported, Installed, Calibrated and Certified

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Apr 27, 2016) - Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) executives announce today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC completed the installation of its truck scale. David Schmitt, COO of Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC, says, "Our crew spent a week laying the foundation for the truck scale." Purchased and disassembled in Georgia, the Weigh-Tronix truck scale is seventy feet long and about eleven feet wide. According to Schmitt, the truck scale has been used on a daily basis for the past three weeks and will continue to be used heavily throughout our current kenaf harvest from the 150 acres planted last year.

"There was a whole week of excavating to ensure the ground was flat and leveled for the truck scale. Our crew poured concrete for a week. The truck scale has a 25-ft approach ramp and a 25-ft exit ramp. The electronic digital indicator, as you see in the video, is now on the outside of our building," says Schmitt.

"Nothing can stop the hemp revolution," said Craig Perlowin, Secretary of Hemp, Inc. "We are making excellent progress. From the silo being erected to the truck scale being installed and being used daily, crews are relentlessly moving forward through rain, sleet, or snow to finish North America's largest hemp processing facility." In Hemp, Inc.'s previous video update, you can see the concrete being poured for the 60x16x2-ft thick silo pad near the end of the video.

Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) continued, "Hemp, Inc. will remain at the forefront of the industrial hemp industry with the largest commercial decorticating plant in the United States. Let's face it: The benefits of industrial hemp are undeniable and this industry is continuing to grow by leaps and bounds. Our company is already positioned to meet the demands of having hemp processed as more and more states pass industrial hemp bills."

In the last month alone, the Louisiana House Agriculture Committee has recently approved two bills to the House floor, HB1085 and HB1099. House bill 1085, sponsored by Representative Jack Montoucet, authorizes institutions of higher education to develop a pilot program to study the growth, cultivation or marketing of industrial hemp for agricultural or academic research. If passed, the bills would allow universities in the state to research the use of the fiber from the hemp plant for use in textiles and other industries and growing marijuana for medicinal use.

The Ohio Ballot Board certified the proposed constitutional amendment known as the "Medicinal Cannabis and Industrial Hemp Amendment" to potentially go on Ohio's ballot as a single issue. The amendment would allow farmers to grow industrial hemp, as well as allow adults (age 21 and older) to grow, transport, share and use marijuana for medicinal purposes.

In Pennsylvania, the industrial hemp bill has been working its way through the House and Senate last week and is believed to soon be legal in Pennsylvania for the first time in decades. A representative from Gov. Tom Wolf's office was quoted saying, "The (hemp) industry is growing, and allowing its growth in Pennsylvania would contribute to important research and the commonwealth's economy."

Alabama House and Senate passed an industrial hemp bill that would authorize the Department of Agriculture and Industries to administer an industrial hemp research program. House Bill (HB) 393 and Senate Bill (SB) 347 state an institution of higher learning may apply for a permit or waiver to grow industrial hemp for the manufacture of hemp products. The industrial hemp bill would also revise the definition of marijuana in the controlled substances law to exclude industrial hemp.

Missouri's House of Representatives passed industrial hemp bill HB 2038 which is set to legalize and regulate the cultivation of industrial hemp in the state of Missouri. According to the industrial hemp bill, industrial hemp production, possession, and commerce in industrial hemp commodities and products shall be permitted in the state and subject to regulation by the Department of Agriculture, including compliance with an industrial hemp plant monitoring system. The industrial hemp bill, passed with a majority vote of 123-29, was approved last week just as Hemp, Inc. completed the installation of its steel silo at their hemp processing facility in Spring Hope, North Carolina.

"Every advancement in the industrial hemp industry reinforces Hemp, Inc.'s advantage in the marketplace because we are years ahead of the curve. For example, our portable decorticators can be purchased or leased in states such as Pennsylvania and Ohio, or any other state in America, to process hemp on site, thus creating revenue for the local farmers and raw materials for Hemp, Inc's marketing arm to sell to manufacturers for hemp products. Our subsidiary, Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC (IHM), is also becoming known throughout the industry as a leader in this sector. Any hemp farmer, anywhere in America interested in purchasing or leasing our portable hemp decorticator, please contact us at info@ihempman.com."

ABOUT INDUSTRIAL HEMP

When it comes to environmental impact, industrial hemp is a crop that can actually give back to the earth. It takes less water to grow and process, is less polluting from pesticides and can actually help rebuild depleted soil. A hemp crop requires half the water alfalfa uses and can be grown without the heavy use of pesticides. According to a USDA report in 2000, industrial hemp is not very susceptible to widespread disease. Most contagion can be controlled through seed treatment before planting. Additional research has shown that industrial hemp can be used for phytoremediation of polluted environments and significantly detox toxic soil.

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 as a nutritional food product for humans and pets, building materials, paper, textiles, cordage, organic body care and other nutraceuticals, just to name a few. It has thousands of other known uses.
