Industrial Hemp News Continues to Sweep the Media Circuit

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Apr 6, 2016) - Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) executives today report on industrial hemp news as it continues to sweep the nation. The versatility of the hemp plant in modern American use has been distorted due to vague distinctions from its cousin marijuana, thus leaving an untapped potential billion-dollar business because of this. Hemp, Inc. executives feel their shareholders and potential shareholders should be kept abreast of "industry material events" such as hemp legislation that continues to evolve and surface on the media circuit from state to state.

Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP), said, "Industrial hemp laws are rapidly changing because demand for this incredibly environmentally friendly natural fiber is increasing. As more people become educated on this non-psychoactive plant, they realize how it will help boost the economy. For years, American citizens have been given a plethora of misinformation and negative propaganda, but how many people realize, for example, that hemp fiber is UV resistant, antimicrobial, and requires less water and pesticides to grow than cotton? Misinformation has inculcated itself into the educational, judicial, law enforcement and medical systems."

Hemp, Inc.'s "Educational Press Releases" continue to report what main stream media is currently covering. While the media has done a good job on reporting the educational facts on industry terms such as industrial hemp, what is hemp, and what is the difference between hemp and marijuana, this press release is intended to give you a sampling of what the media is covering among the different states across the country. And with the largest commercial decorticating plant in the United States, Hemp, Inc. realizes every advancement in the industrial hemp industry solidifies the advantage the company has by being years ahead of the curve. According to Craig Perlowin, Secretary of Hemp, Inc., "We are so far ahead in the industrial hemp industry in the United States that there's no one really in second place."

The Greeley Tribune reported two days ago that industrial hemp is gaining more traction in Colorado. According to the article, Rick Trojan of Colorado Cultivars hemp farm said they will plant between 1,500 and 2,500 acres, which is more than what the entire state of Colorado planted in 2015 alone. Demand is high and farmers say their product would be cheaper if they had more hemp processing equipment in the state.

Hemp, Inc. is positioned to solve the processing needs of farmers with portable hemp decorticators that can be shipped anywhere in the United States to states such as Colorado, Oregon and even Hawaii. With Hemp, Inc.'s commercial decorticator facility and fleet of portable decorticators, hemp all over the U.S. can be harvested and processed.

Also in Colorado's industrial hemp news, Frangiosa Farms is using hemp to take honey to a new level. The company combines the natural healing properties of raw honey with the benefits of hemp and naturally occurring Cannabidiol (CBD), thereby creating Colorado Hemp Honey. According to the article, "CBD is being used by many as a natural alternative to pharmaceuticals, which shows great promise in relieving pain and anxiety, and helping to combat sleep issues and cancer. When combined with the anti-inflammatory and seasonal allergy-relieving properties of raw honey, a new super-healing food is created."

The infused product could help people who suffer from chronic pain, anxiety, sleep issues and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The company has also partnered with the Art of War Project supporting their efforts to inspire hope and contribute to the health and wellbeing of American Veterans dealing with PTSD through yoga, meditation, and art.

In other industrial hemp news, a Hawaii bill allowing the cultivation and distribution of industrial hemp for research was approved by the House Finance Committee last week. According to the article, Senate Bill 2659 would create an industrial hemp pilot program that would allow licensed agents of the state Board of Agriculture to conduct agricultural and academic research on the cultivation of industrial hemp and the "distribution of its seed" in the state of Hawaii.

In Washington, Hemp Bill 6206, which authorizes growing industrial hemp plants for research, was vetoed by the Governor after having been passed in the House and Senate. Because members of the House and Senate had not passed an updated budget within a timely manner, the state Governor "punished" the members by vetoing over 26 bills (one of which included Hemp Bill 6206). The two chambers of legislature then voted to overturn the Governor's vetoes. The bill has now been, officially, enacted into law.

"Each week, we are seeing more and more support for the industrial hemp industry and we're seeing opportunities abound in the hemp industry. It's important that we keep our shareholders informed of what's going on within our industry. Knowledge is power. Hemp, Inc. is at the forefront and has been entrenched in this industry for years," said Craig Perlowin, Secretary of Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP).

This past weekend, the third annual NOCO Hemp Expo was held in Colorado to "increase awareness of industrial and nutritional hemp products, technology, innovation, legislation and politics that impact the advancement of hemp re-entering the mainstream with common-sense regulations." Industry insiders and the general public learned how hemp is grown, processed, and used for food and nutrition, nutraceuticals, building materials, paper, textiles, plastics, composites, nano-materials, bio-fuel, remediation, reclamation and more.

The two-day event hosted a broad range of 75 expert speakers, one of which included David Schmitt, COO of Hemp, Inc.'s wholly owned subsidiary Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC. Since the 2nd Annual NoCo Hemp Expo, last year, exhibitor booths, of various products and organizations, increased from about 70 to 150. It was also reported that there were over 1,200 attendees this year.

The latest in industrial hemp news was shared and everyone was asked to spread the word to help hemp become the American Game Changer.

One of the sponsors for the expo was the National Hemp Association (NHA). NHA is a mission-driven, non-profit organization "dedicated to the re-birth of industrial hemp in America which helps connect farmers, processors, manufacturers, researchers, investors and policy makers to accelerate the growth of this important industry in the United States." Their push in the next couple of months is to raise $1Million and get 1 million signatures to pass the Industrial Farming Act of 2015.

"It's all about forward movement and progress," commented Schmitt. "In addition to attending NOCO, we also attended the Ark LA-Tex Oilfield Expo in Shreveport, LA last week. Since the plant is close to being completed, it was important for Hemp, Inc. to go and get additional leads and contacts in order to market our LCMs (Drillwall) and environmentally safe, oil-spill clean up product (SpillSuck) to the oil industry. We were able to connect with buyers and others interested in our particular products. We hope to make marketing inroads into this sector with our new clean and green environmental products for the oil companies," said Schmitt.

ABOUT INDUSTRIAL 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 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. 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.
