GlobeNewswire - finance.yahoo.com Posted 5 years ago

Las Vegas, NV, June 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP), a global leader in the industrial hemp industry with bi-coastal processing centers including the 85,000 square-foot multipurpose industrial hemp processing facility in Spring Hope, North Carolina, a state of the art processing center in Medford, Oregon, and a 500-acre hemp growing Eco-Village in Golden Valley, Arizona, reports on key updates regarding the upcoming Great American Hempathon… the first ever grow contest in the modern day history of hemp.

“After talking to many growers and potential participants, we’ve reduced the entry fee to $10,000 from the original $50,000 cost previously reported and the revenue split will be 60% for the grower and 40% to Hemp, Inc. (originally a 50/50 split).  This makes it easier for more people to participate. Our goal is to help the small family farms and those who don’t necessarily have a big budget. This takes away the barriers to entry,” says Hemp, Inc. CEO, Bruce Perlowin.

Hemp, Inc. joined its strategic growing partner Veteran Village Kins Community Arizona, Inc. to host “The Great American Hempathon” in Golden Valley, Arizona.  The Hempathon is now tentatively scheduled for late June, 2019 (subject to Arizona state approvals). According to executives, the best days for planting in that area are now through August 15, 2019.

The Hempathon is situated on a 500-acre eco-village, with 300 acres designated for growing hemp. The land has been fenced and is being cleared in anticipation of planting hemp.  According to the site Project Manager, water pipes have been laid to provide plenty of water for the plants and overnight RV sites are being prepared to allow people to stay on the land during the grow.  Live streaming video cameras will allow the world to be able to watch “The Great American Hempathon” in real time.

Specifically, the Hempathon creates joint ventures with growers and provides each grower with a five-acre parcel, or up to 10 acres to plant on, security, tractors and heavy equipment, assistance in harvesting, assistance in the sale, and a customized video of their experience.  Each team should have a master grower with the knowledge and experience to grow CBD quality hemp cannabis.  Each team will be responsible for installing the irrigation systems, preparing the soil, and maintaining their 5-acre grow. 

"The sixty-forty revenue split with Hemp, Inc. (with 40% of that going to the Hemp 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."

Many of the top master growers from around the country are excited to participate in “The Great American Hempathon”.  Hemp Inc. will document the process, showcasing each grower in a docuseries called "The Modern Day 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.

Perlowin and/or another representative will host an informational meeting inside one of the domes on the property to answer any questions about the Hempathon. This informational meeting will be ongoing and will tentatively be every Saturday at 11:30am.

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 â€“ Entertainment

Division One – 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.

Hemp, Inc. also has 4,500 acres of land in Golden Valley, Arizona.  Out of the 4,500 acres of land, 500 acres have currently been designated for the Veteran Village Kins Community (VVKC).  Hemp, Inc. is preparing 300 of those 500 acres for hemp cultivation. The company aims to boost the economies of these towns by offering affordable hemp processing services, which incentivizes local growers to add hemp to their crop rotation. The company is continuing to scout new locations for local processing centers in Florida, Puerto Rico, West Virginia, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire and several other states.

Thus far, Hemp, Inc.’s Local Processing Center (LPC) in Oregon has created over 200 seasonal jobs as well as many year-round jobs.

Division Two – The Hemp Farming Infrastructure

The Hemp Farming Infrastructure (Division Two) 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. (Some of this farming infrastructure can be seen on Bruce Perlowin's personal Facebook page in some of his older posts from Sept. 8th, Aug. 30th, 19th, 15th - 11th, 9th and 4th, July 31st, 29th, 21st - 16th, 2018.)
