Hemp Industry Updates:
It is now legal (as of Jan. 1, 2016) to cultivate hemp under current federal guidelines. Senate Bill 305, which won unanimous approval in both chambers of legislature back in May of 2015, was signed into law by Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval giving colleges, universities, and the state Department of Agriculture the right to grow industrial hemp for research purposes under an agricultural pilot program when registered and certified by the NV Department of Agriculture.
Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP), said, "The legalization across America is happening right before our eyes. As more people become educated on the myriad benefits of industrial hemp, including how it can help the economy, more states are in favor of hemp legalization. We are certain industrial hemp will be a huge part of our future in the Southeast part of the United States and, now, in our home state, Nevada. Industrial hemp is indeed an integral, critical component of the future that is needed to build and ensure a new clean, green sustainable environment and Hemp, Inc. is helping to create that future. We are especially thrilled that the state where we have our corporate headquarters has now legalized hemp cultivation. And in the case of North Carolina, we worked diligently on helping hemp legalization become a reality. All of this happened over the course of the last 90 days and Hemp, Inc. has a strong presence in both of these states. We look forward to participating more actively (in terms of growing) in the state of Nevada."
Hemp, Inc.'s multipurpose hemp processing plant, the first and only commercial factory to be built in the United States in almost a century, will be able to vertically integrate growing, decortication, and milling. Hemp, Inc. executives say it will provide the infrastructure America needs to transition to a more clean, green American Agricultural and Industrial Hemp Revolution for the American farmers and hemp product manufacturers.

UPDATE ON HEMP, INC.'S DECORTICATION LINE
Hemp, Inc. continues to update its shareholders every step of the way. According to its most recent video update (published December 22, 2015), the multipurpose industrial hemp processing plant in North Carolina, nestled on 9 acres, is nearing completion. The frame for the industrial hemp testing lab has been built. The transformer is complete. The disconnect switch is in place. Electricians continue to finalize miles of electrical work.
Outside the facility, the kenaf field will soon be cut and later brought inside for baling. According to David Schmitt, IHM's COO, the first frost kills the kenaf, then it sits in the field to defoliate. When the moisture content drops below 12%, it's ready to be baled. The Hemp, Inc. portable decortication machine is also being re-designed for optimal efficiency. Not only is it expected to produce millions of dollars in revenue a year from processing kenaf and, later, hemp, it's aligned with Hemp, Inc.'s commitment to the American farmers and to spearheading a new clean, green American Agricultural and Industrial Revolution.
While Hemp, Inc. will continue to market its hemp-based cosmeceutical and nutraceutical product lines, the legalization of industrial hemp in North Carolina has been a game changer for the company. Hemp, Inc. expects its decortication line to be fully operational by the second quarter of 2016. It is the only commercial facility in America at this time that will be able to process raw hemp.
