It costs $50,000 to participate in The Great American Hempathon and winners will share up to $100,000 in prize money, in a variety of categories. Five-acres have the possibility to produce up to a million dollars or more of net profit. This joint venture arrangement would be a fifty-fifty revenue split with the Company.

“The fifty-fifty revenue split with Hemp, Inc. (with half of that going to the Veteran Village Kins Community) will not only generate a substantial revenue stream for Hemp, Inc. and its shareholders and the Veteran Village Kins Community, it will also generate a positive return on investment for The Great American Hempathon participants,” said Hemp, Inc. CEO Bruce Perlowin. “Through this partnership, participants receive more than just a cash profit. This also provides them with an opportunity to learn from industry experts from all over America over a four to six month period.”

The growers are divided into teams that include a master grower who is expected to have knowledge of the plant and experience growing cannabidiol (CBD) quality hemp. The growers are responsible for supplying seeds, clones, and soil. They are also required to install an irrigation system for their parcel, provide personnel, equipment and products required to grow.

Hemp, Inc. provides participants with cleared land, a fenced growing area, security, tractors and heavy equipment, assistance in harvesting, assistance in the sale, and a customized video of their experience. Hemp Inc. will document the process, showcasing each grower in a docuseries called "The Modern Day History of Hemp.”  Many of the top master growers from around the country are excited to participate in The Great American Hempathon in order to be a part of this docuseries on the history of hemp.  This is a chance to actively be a part of history in the making while also helping non-profits such as The Twilight Brigade, Feed the Homeless, Wild Planet and more.

In addition to the docuseries, the first Arizona-based Hemp University will be held in a 60-foot geodesic dome that can seat up to 200 people. Along with the various Hemp University masterclasses, participants will be able to take field trips to the five-acre hemp grows just 100 yards away. Previous Hemp University workshops have taken place in North Carolina and more recently, Oregon.

A 44-foot geodesic dome will be set up as a vendor area selling a wide variety of products needed to grow industrial hemp. A 36-foot geodesic dome will be set up as a movie room to show documentaries and courses on various hemp farming topics.

Hemp, Inc. recently announced a partnership with Pistil Partners, Inc. and its subsidiary Ironside Hemp Company to further allow farmers to access high-quality clones. At the forefront of innovation, Ironside is a vertically integrated producer of CBD rich hemp with 175,000 square feet of greenhouses located outside of Raleigh, NC producing certified CBD hemp varieties including Cherry Wine (10-20% CBD content).

To learn more about Ironside Hemp clones and receive a 10 percent discount, please visit  https://www.ironsidehemp.com/buy-clones/ and type “HempInc”  into the coupon code at checkout.

According to executives, this partnership comes at a time of continuous efforts for Hemp, Inc. and its mission to help new and veteran farmers entering the high cannabidiol (CBD) hemp farming industry as Hemp, Inc. continues the rollout of the King of Hemp premium CBD prerolls. With this partnership, the company has dedicated up to 1.5 million clones for North Carolina and surrounding states’ hemp farmers and is offering a 10 percent discount on bulk clone purchases of 1,000 clones or more. Additionally, Ironside will provide all ongoing resources such as clone selection, pricing, logistics and potential consulting services.

There are both benefits and drawbacks to growing with clones or seeds. However, a high-quality clone crop will outperform a high-quality seed crop.

·       With clones, you know the THC potency by testing the parent plant. Thus, ensuring you are growing legal hemp not illegal marijuana or low-value fiber hemp.

·       Clones are 100% female. There are no males in the crop to wreck CBD values.

·       Quality clones will display: vigorous new growth; established root systems; and, be free from and resistant to pests.

It takes considerable skill and know-how to make large batches of high-quality clones to plant outdoors, and it has been difficult to find quality clones in the market. This has led to a misconception that seeds are better. With the right clone provider, farmers can jumpstart hemp growing exponentially.


What is Hemp, Inc.? With a deep-rooted social and environmental mission at its core, Hemp, Inc. seeks to build a business constituency for the American small farmer, the American veteran, and other groups experiencing the ever-increasing disparity between tapering income and soaring expenses. As a leader in the industrial hemp industry with ownership of the largest commercial multi-purpose industrial hemp processing facility in North America, Hemp, Inc. believes there can be tangible benefits reaped from adhering to a corporate social responsibility plan.


Hemp, Inc. has been helping to build the industrial hemp infrastructure that was basically non-existent in America. There are now ten divisions:

Division One â€“ The Industrial Hemp Infrastructure

Division Two â€“ The Hemp Farming Infrastructure

Division Three â€“ The Hemp Extraction Infrastructure

Division Four â€“ The Hemp Educational Infrastructure

Division Five â€“ The Hemp Marketing Infrastructure

Division Six â€“ Accessories, Products and Services

Division Seven â€“ Research and Development

Division Eight â€“ Industrial Hemp Investments and Joint Ventures

Division Nine â€“ Industrial Hemp Consulting

Division Ten - Entertainment

Division One â€“ The Industrial Hemp Infrastructure

The Industrial Hemp Infrastructure (Division One) currently consists of two hemp processing facilities across the country, with two more under development, which will include an in-house third party testing laboratory.  The largest of the two is its multi-purpose industrial hemp processing facility and milling operation in Spring Hope, North Carolina. It’s the largest “industrial hemp processing center” in the western hemisphere and has grown to become one of the pre-eminent centers of the industrial hemp industry. The 85,000 square foot facility sits on a 9-acre campus. It is environmentally sustainable and was built from the ground up in hopes of “Making America Hemp Again."  With a patent pending manufacturing process, the North Carolina facility is operating full time to process millions of pounds of our unique kenaf, hemp blend, to manufacture an all green natural loss circulation materials (LCMs) that are to be sold to the oil and gas drilling industry, along with an all green natural oil spill absorbent, a second industrial hemp/kenaf product called Spill-Be-Gone.

 (To see a one-minute video of the millions of pounds of kenaf, go to Bruce Perlowin's personal Facebook page, September 7th, 11th, 13th, 20th and 22nd, 2018.)

In addition to the company’s industrial hemp processing facility in Spring Hope, North Carolina, Hemp, Inc. also has one of the most sophisticated local processing centers (LPC) in Medford, Oregon which focuses on hemp harvesting, drying, curing, trimming, bagging, storing, and in some cases selling high CBD hemp for the local farmers and for our own hemp grows in that area, and post processing for the CBD industry.
