Missouri House Passes Industrial Hemp Bill as Hemp, Inc. Completes Its 60-Foot Silo Installation

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Apr 13, 2016) -  Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) executives announce today that 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.

"After months of weather delays, due to above average rainfall, we have finally been able to install our 60-foot tall silo as you can see from Hemp, Inc.'s latest video update." said David Schmitt, COO of Hemp, Inc.'s wholly owned subsidiary Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC. "Edwards Inc. of Spring Hope, NC provided the cranes and the manpower to raise and position the steel silo onto the concrete foundation. Concor, Inc. of Greenville, NC fastened the silo to the foundation. It was a double victory, with the Missouri House passing the industrial hemp bill legalizing the cultivation of industrial hemp."

Craig Perlowin, Secretary of Hemp, Inc. was on site to observe the event. "The excessive rain made the soil too soft to hold the 2,100-ton cranes that were needed on site to install the steel silo. Prior to that, above average rainfall delayed the crew in pouring concrete for the 60x16x2-ft thick pad that provides the foundation for the silo. We had to wait over 8 weeks for a break in the weather to pour that concrete slab. The massive steel silo is 12 feet in diameter and 60 feet tall and weighs 30,000 pounds, when empty. Now that the silo is in place, everyone is relentless in moving forward to finish America's largest commercial, hemp processing facility. It's evident nothing can stop the hemp revolution. More states are beginning to pass an industrial hemp bill."

According to Schmitt, the silo will be used to store Hemp, Inc.'s loss circulation material (LCM), Drillwall, prior to packaging. "Once the Kenaf (or hemp) stalk has been decorticated, the core of the stalk will go through a milling process to obtain a certain particle size. Then, there are several additives that go into the mix. Once this process is complete, the finished product is conveyed pneumatically into the silo. From the silo, it is conveyed mechanically to the bagging line where it is packaged in 25-pound multi-wall bags and palletized for shipment."

Jack A. Farrior Inc. of Farmville, NC is the engineering firm assisting with the installation of Hemp, Inc.'s milling operation. The final drawings have been approved and the installation and fabrication are on track according to Schmitt.

"On Saturday, April 9, 2016 we began bailing our Kenaf harvest from last year. We are approximately 50 percent complete with this process. Once the harvest is complete, all of the material should be in our warehouse by Sunday April 16th, weather permitting of course." The company has been receiving numerous requests for products on a weekly basis. "It is my goal to have several orders in house prior to bringing the plant online."

Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP), said, "More states are recognizing the benefits of industrial hemp which is why we are seeing more and more states pass an industrial hemp bill in favor of industrial hemp. With the largest commercial decorticating plant in the United States, Hemp, Inc. realizes every advancement in the industrial hemp industry reinforces its advantage in the marketplace because we are years ahead of the curve. Our subsidiary, Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC (IHM), is also becoming known throughout the industry as a leader in this sector."

The Spring Hope North Carolina Chamber of Commerce just selected Hemp, Inc.'s facility to host their Business After Hours commerce board meeting on May 23, 2016 and was "thrilled" that IHM agreed. Chamber executives said, "We feel it would be good to give the chamber members an opportunity to meet you and hear your story." The meeting is also expected to include a tour of the plant.

"Each week, we are seeing more and more support for the industrial hemp industry and we're seeing opportunities abound in the hemp industry. With each industrial hemp bill passed, it's important that we keep our shareholders informed. We intend to remain at the forefront of the industrial hemp industry," says Perlowin.

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. 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.
