Louisiana May Soon Grow Industrial Hemp

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Apr 21, 2016) - Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) executives are pleased to announce that Louisiana's 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.

Craig Perlowin, Secretary of Hemp, Inc. commented, "This is a big step for Louisiana. With each favorable industrial hemp legislation passed, it is evident to me, that the United States federal government can no longer bridle the demand for this economical and sustainable crop which was once key to our nation's development, wealth and defense. Hemp, Inc. is in an ideal position. We are close to finishing America's largest (and only) commercial-sized, hemp processing facility which will have the capability and capacity to process hemp in very large quantities. We just installed our massive 60-ft tall steel silo at our facility after being delayed weeks due to excessive rain. However, the 60-foot silo and concrete foundation are now completed, as nothing can stop the industrial hemp revolution."

Louisiana's second bill, HB1099 sponsored by Major Thibaut, would "legalize and set up a system for the production and distribution of medical marijuana," allowing Louisiana State University Agricultural Center and Southern University Agriculture Center first rights to grow marijuana. According to reports, "production would be under the watchful eye of the Department of Agriculture and Forestry," and, "the bill would ideally offer a solution for patients legally prescribed marijuana in Louisiana but unable to obtain the drug."

Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) continued, "Let's face it. The benefits of industrial hemp are undeniable which is why we are seeing more and more states pass industrial hemp bills. We're seeing opportunities abound in the hemp industry. With each industrial hemp bill passed, we are keeping our shareholders informed. Hemp, Inc. will remain at the forefront of the industrial hemp industry with the largest commercial decorticating plant in the United States."

"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.
