SPRING HOPE, NC–(Marketwired – August 2, 2017) – A global leader and major player in the industrial hemp industry, Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP), announced today that after 3 1/2 years, millions of dollars spent on purchasing, disassembling, transporting, reassembling, rebuilding, refurbishing, beta testing and debugging, the largest multipurpose industrial hemp processing facility in the Western Hemisphere is now operational and is processing its first product.  The milestone coincides with Hemp, Inc.’s installation of its NuAxon Tech CO2 Supercritical Extractor, the planting of hundreds of acres of industrial hemp and high CBD hemp in North Carolina, Kentucky, Colorado, Nevada, and Oregon and the successful establishment and ongoing monthly hemp educational seminars via The Hemp University at Louisburg College in Louisburg, North Carolina. Executives were ecstatic to see the mill processing and packaging for the first time after a laborious 3+ years.

HEMP, INC.’S NORTH CAROLINA INDUSTRIAL HEMP HUB
Hemp, Inc.’s 70,000 square foot industrial hemp processing facility, on over 9 acres in Spring Hope, North Carolina, is the only one of this magnitude in North America. It is indeed bound to become the mecca of this new clean green agricultural and industrial American revolution. Based on a variety of factors, Perlowin believes North Carolina is strategically positioned to be the largest hemp producing state in America by 2018. However, Kentucky and West Virginia (where Perlowin is currently traveling visiting hemp growing sites) will join this industrial hemp hub along with Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, Tennessee, South Carolina, and Georgia.  Most of these states were historically considered the hemp hub of America and will be again this time next year.

ABOUT THE “HEMP GROWING, CBD PRODUCING VETERAN VILLAGE KINS COMMUNITIES”
Aligned with Hemp, Inc.’s Triple Bottom Line approach, CEO Bruce Perlowin is exploring the possibilities of developing “Hemp Growing, CBD Producing Veteran Village Kins Communities” in North Carolina, Florida, Kentucky and several other states similar to the 500-acre demonstration community being built in Arizona. He currently has 4,500 acres (and counting) of land north of Kingman, Arizona where he’s building a Veteran Village on 500 of those acres that would consist of 160 lots of 2 1/2 acre parcels for Kins Domains (eco-villages). Each parcel would grow 1 acre of hemp as well as having organic gardens, natural beehives, a pond, a living fence and other elements that make up a Kins Domain.
An additional 100 acres of hemp will be grown in each one of these 500-acre communities which will also include a 100,000 square-foot hemp (CBD) processing facility and a 10 acre holistic and learning center designed to treat and retrain veterans. The revenue from fifty of those acres is used to support that community. The revenue from the other fifty acres of hemp will be used to purchase 2 additional 500-acre parcels of land, thus keeping up with the needs of a large number of veterans that exist now and in the future.  The eco-friendly “Veteran Village Kins Communities” were inspired by the book series, The Ringing Cedars of Russia (https://www.ringingcedars.com).
Perlowin has since found a way to incorporate it into Hemp, Inc.’s strategy of building hemp growing, CBD-producing “communities” or “villages.” The first part of these “Veteran Village Kins Communities” is a “holistic healing and learning center” whose function in each community is to treat, train and re-train our veterans. The prototype Veteran Village Kins Community in Arizona is expected to be completed by late 2017.
Perlowin has been personally creating the Arizona “Veteran Village Kins Community” since 2013 as a solution to America’s multifaceted veteran problem. To date, forty-four percent of America’s homeless are veterans. Twelve percent of that group are combat woman veterans with children. Twenty-two veterans commit suicide EVERY DAY. Two million veterans are on food stamps. As for the future, 238,000 veterans are leaving the armed services every year, according to Dannion Brinkley, Chairman of the Twilight Brigade.
From rehabilitation to job creation, Perlowin says this model presents a comprehensive holistic solution to those individuals that all Americans owe a great debt of gratitude towards the American veterans. Perlowin expects this model to produce very lucrative revenue for Hemp, Inc., the veterans themselves and the local communities these Kins Communities are built near. “The infrastructure for ‘The Hemp Growing, CBD-Producing, Veteran-Village Kins Community,’ which takes time to build, is already in place in Arizona. I’ve been building this infrastructure since 2013 and it can be duplicated for any state,” says Perlowin.

ABOUT VOTE HEMP
Vote Hemp is a national, single-issue, nonprofit organization dedicated to the acceptance of and free market for industrial hemp, low-THC oilseed and fiber varieties of Cannabis, and to changes in current law to allow U.S. farmers to grow the crop. Our ultimate goal is having hemp grown on a commercial scale in the U.S. once again and for the crop to be able to be processed here as well. We educate people on the issues surrounding hemp, register voters, and build coalitions to fulfill our mission.
Vote Hemp is working to shift federal regulation of industrial hemp farming out of the hands of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and get hemp farming regulated on the state level. Vote Hemp also works to defend against any new laws, regulations or policies that would prohibit or restrict hemp commerce or imports. Vote Hemp is not a drug policy organization, nor do we take positions on drug policy issues other than the improper classification of hemp as a drug.

IN THE NEWS: HEMP ON TRACK FOR LEGALIZATION
North Carolina: Editorial, “Here’s Another way North Carolina is out-hustling Virginia” talks about North Carolina’s top hemp advocate on “how this (industrial hemp) genetic offshoot of marijuana is such a versatile crop that farmers can make money three ways off the same plant — the seeds can be used for food, the pods for nutritional supplements, the stalks used for fiber.” “It’s a no-brainer thing for farmers,” Bob Crumley says.” He talks about how growing hemp was once considered a patriotic act. In colonial times, farmers were required to plant a certain number of acres of hemp — or pay higher taxes. The first drafts of the Declaration of Independence were written on hemp paper. Betsy Ross’s flag was made out of hemp. Hemp was the “America First” economic policy of its day, because the fibrous plant enabled the colonies to be self-reliant in everything from canvas for ships’ sails to uniforms. Read the full editorial here.
Utah: A Utah agricultural board has given preliminary approval to a change in government rules that would allow farmers in the state to cultivate industrial hemp for research purposes. Farmers would be allowed to grow hemp that contains less than 0.03% THC under the Utah Department of Food and Agriculture’s proposed rule. State research institutions such as Utah State University are already allowed to cultivate industrial hemp for research purposes as part of the 2014 federal Farm Bill, but the new rule would expand who’s allowed to grow the plant, the Salt Lake Tribune reported. Read the full article here.
Nevada: Gov. Sandoval signed Senate Bill 375 and Senate Bill 396 recently, allowing Nevada’s Native American tribal government to directly negotiate with the state over the use and sale of medicinal cannabis on tribal lands, and expanding the state’s hemp cultivation program. According to the article, Gov. Sandoval also gave the proverbial green light by signing off on Senate Bill 396. The recently passed legislation creates an additional hemp program for Nevada’s farmers. Per the bill, S.B. 396 establishes rules and regulations authorizing the growth and handling of industrial hemp for the production of cannabinoid-infused products.
Colorado: Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper signed off on Senate Bill 17-117, entitled “Recognize Industrial Hemp Agricultural Product for Agricultural Water Right,” on May 21, 2017. This bill protects hemp farmers who use water stored in federal reservoirs. The bill was introduced in the state Legislature by Sen. Don Coram, and sponsored by Rep. Marc Catlin. Both are Montrose Republicans. Colorado legalized growing hemp in 2014, but it is still banned at the federal level, creating complications when water from a federal project is used to water it. Senate Bill 17-117 says Colorado water right holders have the right to use it on hemp if the person is registered by the state to grow hemp for commercial, or research purposes. During an interview with The Journal, Hickenlooper said the hemp water bill will give farmers some reassurance, and he was cautiously optimistic that it could become a good cash crop for the state.
