LAS VEGAS, NV - (NewMediaWire) - November 23, 2015 - Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP), a leader in the industrial hemp industry, announced today that sales for the 3rd quarter ending September 30, 2015 increased 53.8% over the 2nd quarter. Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP), stated, "The industrial hemp industry is really booming. More states are beginning to realize it is more advantageous for them to legalize it. As you know, North Carolina, home to our industrial hemp commercial decortication facility, legalized hemp. Farmers in North Carolina now have the option to cultivate hemp crops with easy access to Hemp, Inc.'s (OTC PINK: HEMP) multipurpose industrial hemp commercial processing facility."
The legalization of industrial hemp in North Carolina has been a game changer for Hemp, Inc. The direction of the company has shifted towards more advanced processing in the milling line. Perlowin said the company will still continue to market its hemp-based cosmeceutical and nutraceutical product line. "In terms of generating profit, our multipurpose industrial hemp processing facility in Spring Hope, North Carolina by far outweighs any sales revenue generated from our product line, which is why we feel it best to shift focus," said Perlowin.
According to Aubree Arias, CEO of Green Leaf Joint Ventures, "I believe Hemp, Inc. has a distinct advantage. Not only is its commercial decortication facility the only one in the U.S. that will be able to process raw hemp or kenaf on a large scale, the company is also producing lost circulation material (LCM) for the oil and drilling industries. That's very lucrative partly because it's hard to source. I've heard of companies having issues with their supply coming from overseas (China, Indonesia, etc.). Currently, the supply chain is not reliable and it's hard to get a steady supply of raw materials. Hemp, Inc., however, is a local source for LCMs of better quality."
As the industry continues to boom, Hemp, Inc. is expecting millions of dollars in revenue to be generated per year pending the completion of its multipurpose industrial hemp processing plant that vertically integrates growing, decortification, milling, and more. The burgeoning demand for hemp, the plant used for thousands of years that became illegal decades ago, in the United States continues to increase.
More states are realizing the enormous environmental and economic benefits of industrial hemp. Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) executives feel their shareholders, potential shareholders and all others should be informed of "industry material events" to keep them informed of hemp legislation and rapidly changing laws in the industry.
