SPRING HOPE, NC, Dec. 11, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) announced today the first phase of its newly revamped website (www.hempinc.com). Hemp, Inc.’s website was restructured to offer its shareholders easy and quick accessibility to essential information about the company while offering a more comprehensive understanding of the Company's goals, mission and value. Most importantly, Hemp, Inc. will now post its financial disclosures on its website instead of on OTC Markets, as done previously. Continual updates on The Hemp University and corporate press releases will also be offered in a more streamlined format. While it is a work in progress, it is a good start.

We have spent millions of dollars and 3 ½ years building the largest industrial hemp processing facility in the western hemisphere. The 85,000 square foot campus, on 9 acres, has been up and running and producing Loss Circulation Materials (LCMs) since August 1, 2017 and the company is building its reserve of LCMs so we can offer a consistent supply of high quality, natural products that are in high demand. We have also installed a clean room for our NuAxon Tech Industrial CO2 Supercritical Extractor from NuAxon BioScience, which has been up and running and producing CBDs continuously since August 15, 2017. The third division of our company, Hemp Farming Infrastructure, has been going strong for the past 3 years growing kenaf and hemp in multiple states. The fourth division, Hemp Education Infrastructure, has been successful with its five sold out Hemp University seminars in North Carolina. They educate farmers, entrepreneurs, and investors on the various aspects of the industrial hemp industry. It is now time to focus on the fifth division, Hemp Marketing Infrastructure, which now involves redesigning the Hemp, Inc. website. This is a major part of our Hemp Marketing Infrastructure.
“We wanted to ensure our shareholders, potential customers, investors and media all have easy access to information they need regarding our company… especially our financial data/disclosures. We pride ourselves in being one of the most transparent companies in our sector such as the daily one-minute videos posted on Facebook every day. Hemp, Inc.’s Third Quarterly Report (ending 9/30/17) is now posted on our website. All future quarterly reports and financial data will be posted there as well. Our goal is for www.HempInc.com to have a cleaner, uncluttered design with improved functionality in order to deliver rich company content. Now, site visitors will have a more informative experience perusing our website as the company continues to grow and expand in our five divisions,” said Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc.
“Hemp, Inc.’s position is that America can grow all the industrial hemp it wants, however, unless we have the infrastructure to process that hemp, we have nothing,” stated Perlowin. “In order for this multi-trillion-dollar industry to emerge, we as a nation must first focus on building out the very expensive Industrial Hemp Infrastructure (IHI), which is exactly what Hemp, Inc. has been doing for the last four years. It’s been years of long hard work which are just now beginning to pay off as each of our first five divisions moves into operational and revenue generating mode. It’s a very robust framework and we are very excited for the possibilities and opportunities that these infrastructure divisions will afford us. Those who read this press release in detail will now have a very clear idea as to exactly what Hemp, Inc. is all about and what we have accomplished thus far," concluded Perlowin.
According to Perlowin, the company’s five divisions will also be updated on the website. The five key infrastructure divisions, through which steps have been taken, thus far, are:
(1) Industrial Hemp Manufacturing and Processing Infrastructure – Division One
(2) Hemp Oil Extraction Infrastructure – Division Two
(3) Hemp Farming Infrastructure – Division Three
(4) Hemp Education Infrastructure – Division Four
(5) Marketing Infrastructure – Division Five
"We want to drive home to our shareholders that we have very lucid infrastructure divisions in action that have created a strong platform for growth, now and into the future. While always adhering to our discipline on transparency with our shareholders and the public, we are resolutely committed to these infrastructure divisions," said Perlowin. "We believe our first core infrastructure divisions outline Hemp, Inc.'s operations, and allow us to allocate time and capital strategically to drive long-term shareholder value, as you will see below."
1. Industrial Hemp Manufacturing and Processing Infrastructure - Division One
Spearheaded by David Schmitt, COO of Hemp, Inc.’s, wholly owned subsidiary, Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC, the Industrial Hemp Manufacturing and Processing Infrastructure division consists of the largest multi-purpose industrial hemp processing facility and milling operation in the western hemisphere that has grown to become the pre-eminent center of the industrial hemp industry. The 85,000 square foot facility sits on a 9-acre campus in Spring Hope, North Carolina. With the patent pending manufacturing process, it is operating full time to process kenaf into all green, natural LCMs that will be sold to the oil and gas drilling industry. Hemp, Inc. is currently stockpiling tons of LCM to be prepared for the projected demand. (See Bruce Perlowin’s Facebook post December 10, 2017.) Hemp, Inc. has been negotiating sales to oil companies on 5 continents with one company in America stating they are interested in purchasing our entire productive capacity of the plant. As sales are closed, they will be announced in future press releases. (To see a one-minute video of the millions of pounds of kenaf on hand, go to Bruce Perlowin's personal Facebook page, September 7th, 11th, 13th, 20th and 22nd.)
2. Hemp Oil Extraction Infrastructure - Division Two
Spearheaded by an array of talented professionals such as extractors and chemical engineers, the Hemp Oil Extraction Infrastructure currently consists of its NuAxon Tech Industrial CO2 Supercritical Extractor from NuAxon BioScience, manufacturer and the producer of the world class, large capacity CO2 Supercritical Extraction equipment. Hemp, Inc. currently has a growing inventory of raw CBD oil. The company’s post processing equipment is scheduled to be installed on January 8, 2018, giving Hemp the ability to further purify the product. Hemp, Inc. is currently in negotiations with several other extraction companies to house other extractors at its campus. (To see Hemp, Inc.'s NuAxon Tech CO2 Supercritical Extractor in operation, visit Perlowin's Facebook page, Sept. 27th and Aug. 16th.)
3. Hemp Farming Infrastructure - Division Three
Spearheaded by 3rd, 4th and 5th generational farmers and “master growers”, the Hemp Farming Infrastructure division consists of hundreds of acres of hemp and kenaf growing in multiple locations, farm equipment, cloning rooms, clones and seeds, grow rooms, greenhouses, hemp drying facilities and a huge amount of peripheral farming tools and equipment. The company’s greenhouse is currently being erected and is scheduled to be operational by the end of the month. According to executives, cloning is also in process and will expand from the cloning barn into the greenhouse once the greenhouse is operational. (Some of this farming infrastructure can be seen on Bruce Perlowin's Facebook page, Sept. 8th, Aug. 30th, 19th, 15th - 11th, 9th and 4th, July 31st, 29th, 21st - 16th.) Hemp, Inc. also has a model family farm situated on 5 acres that consists of a cloning room, a greenhouse, and 5,000 hemp plants. (This model farm can be seen on Bruce Perlowin's Facebook page, Aug. 22nd - 26th.) Hemp is showing farmers how to grow high CBD hemp plants, operate a greenhouse and turn a barn into a cloning room to earn up to $500,000 or more per year. By demonstrating this model, the small family farm can now reappear on the American landscape. After all, the original small family farms in America were able to survive economically by growing hemp as their main cash crop and the first 5 presidents of the United States were all hemp farmers.
4. Hemp Education Infrastructure - Division Four
Spearheaded by Rick Rainbolt, Dr. Brock (double Ph.D.) and many other talented educators and trainers of various disciplines, the Hemp Education Infrastructure division includes Hemp, Inc.'s Hemp University; attending various events (see Bruce Perlowin's personal Facebook page, Oct. 7th and 8th); and, attending, speaking and displaying at industry expos (see Bruce Perlowin's personal Facebook page, Sept. 14th through 16th) to, in turn, educate the public on hemp in the industry. The educational seminars, through The Hemp University, are held approximately every 6 – 7 weeks and teach farmers and landowners how to create a profitable income stream by maximizing their per-acre crop revenue. The Hemp University is also one way the company is contributing to making America great again by making America hemp again. (To see the Hemp University, visit Bruce Perlowin's personal Facebook page, Oct. 30th, 24th - 29th and Jul. 1st - 10th.)
"Since our launch with the first educational symposium, the number of attendees has grown consistently and it has been a great success, each time. Our interactive, hands-on learning approach is invaluable. By learning in an interactive cohort format, students gain the necessary skills they need to immediately implement them on their farm or in their organization. We've achieved the powerful mix of quality instruction, relevant educational content and a high level of commitment, to ensure the educational success of each attendee," said Rick Rainbolt, President of Hemp, Inc.'s wholly owned subsidiary, Hemp University, LLC.
5. Marketing Infrastructure - Division Five
Spearheaded by Bruce Perlowin, David Schmitt and a talented team of master distributors and marketers, the company is reaching the point soon where it will implement its fifth infrastructure division: Marketing Infrastructure - Division Five. "Once we have enough inventory (a condition rapidly approaching) we will begin to market aggressively," said Perlowin. "Our focus on operational expansion and education-focused outreach allow us to grow sustainably while helping shape America's newest industry as it continues to evolve."
