LAS VEGAS, NV, March 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE – Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) a global leader in the industrial hemp industry with bi-coastal processing centers, including the largest multipurpose industrial hemp processing facility in Spring Hope, NC, a state-of-the-art local processing center in Southern Oregon, a 500-acre hemp growing Veteran Village Kins Community in Golden Valley, Arizona, two model “Small Family Hemp Farms” in North Carolina and Arizona, and a pre-roll blending manufacturing facility in Las Vegas, NV,  and The King of Hemp StoreTM, a 5,000 square-foot retail location in Kingman, Arizona, announced today that Microcap Daily discussed the Company’s trading activity in its recent article, “The Long and Short On Hemp, Inc. (OTCMKTS: HEMP).”Microcap Daily has been reporting on the Company for years; in 2014 the outlet noted highlights such as making “a highly explosive move up with the rest of the sector” and its “spectacular run.” The article also highlights Hemp, Inc. CEO Bruce Perlowin’s role as the subject of the  No. 1 most watched CNBC documentary of all time “Marijuana Inc.”
“In this interview Bruce shares the latest news from around the country and about Hemp, Inc. – a publicly traded company he founded to help create a better world,” the article reports. “Mr. Perlowin may not have a marketing degree but he has proved himself a master at it getting himself featured in stories and interviews over the years on main stream press including Barrons, The Associated Press, New York Times, Newsweek, Fox News, Wall Street Journal, PBS, Market Watch and NPR among others.”In addition, the article notes that the Company is continuing to release exciting new developments and “continues to be among the most active in small caps” despite having a stop sign designation from OTC Markets, which states that HEMP is either a dark or defunct stock. Unfortunately, OTC’s statement on its website continues to cause a misunderstanding regarding Hemp, Inc.’s reporting status. The Company posts their  financial disclosures on its own website and they are completely up to date and current.Microcap Daily is an equity news and research organization focusing on micro and small cap companies. Their organization produces and distributes high-quality news and economic research to a broad audience through various distribution networks and channels.

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.’S TEN DIVISIONSHemp, Inc. has been helping to build the industrial hemp infrastructure that was basically non-existent in America. There are now ten divisions:Division One – The Industrial Hemp Infrastructure
Division Two – The Hemp Farming Infrastructure
Division Three – The Hemp Extraction & Pre-Roll Blending Infrastructure
Division Four – The Hemp Educational Infrastructure
Division Five – The Hemp Marketing Infrastructure
Division Six – Accessories, Products and Services
Division Seven – Research and Development
Division Eight – Industrial Hemp Investments and Joint Ventures
Division Nine – Industrial Hemp Consulting
Division Ten – Educational 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 9-acres. 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 all-green natural loss circulation material (LCMs), called DrillWallTM that is to be sold to the oil and gas drilling industry, along with an all-green natural oil spill absorbent, a second industrial kenaf-hemp product called Spill-Be-GoneTM. 
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 local farmers and the Company’s own hemp grows in that area, and post processing for the CBD industry.  The Company’s main focus is the “King of HempTM” pre-rolls and high CBD smokeable buds… a new phenomenon of smoking hemp which has caught the marketplace by storm.
Hemp, Inc. and their associates also have 4,500 acres of land in Golden Valley, Arizona  (100 miles from Las Vegas, 20 miles north of Kingman, AZ).  Out of the 4,500 acres of land, 500 acres are designated for the Veteran’s Village Kins Community (VVKC) for Arizona.  Hemp, Inc. is preparing 80+ acres, of the 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, Kentucky, West Virginia, Puerto Rico, and several other states.
Thus far, Hemp, Inc.’s Local Processing Center (LPC) in Oregon has employed over 200 employees during its 2018 harvest season and over 300 employees during its 2019 harvest season to further support the infrastructure necessary for local and large scale farmers operating in the industrial hemp space.Division One Products:DrillWallTM (a loss circulation material)Spill-Be-GoneTM (an oil spill cleanup product)Hemp bioplasticsDivision 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. The progress Hemp, Inc. has made in its agricultural endeavors, over the course of four years, has been amazing. The year 2020 marks the fifth year that Hemp, Inc. has been growing hemp. (To see Hemp, Inc.’s agricultural progress from 2016 through 2019, visit Bruce Perlowin’s personal Facebook page at www.facebook.com/kingofpot and scroll through posts from 2016 to the present. Visit www.hempincpresents.com to see the videos of Hemp, Inc.’s grows in multiple locations.) 
Hemp, Inc. also has two “Small Family Hemp Farm” models.  The “Small Family Hemp Farm” in North Carolina is situated on 12 acres and consists of a cloning room, a greenhouse, and enough land to grow 2,000-3,000 high CBD hemp plants. (This model farm can be seen on Bruce Perlowin’s Facebook page, in the Aug. 22nd – 26th, 2018 posts.) The model shows farmers how to grow high CBD hemp plants, operate a greenhouse and turn a barn into a cloning room to earn up to $100,000+ a year. This shows an example of how the “Small Family Hemp Farm” can be duplicated and 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 five presidents of the United States were all hemp farmers.
Hemp, Inc.’s other “Small Family Hemp Farm” is located Dolan Springs, Arizona. This “Small Family Hemp Farm” is referred to as “The Orchard” since it has a sizable organic orchard.  There are: 2 acres on which hemp will be grown on; a cloning room; cold storage; and greenhouses that are currently being installed.
This year, according to Perlowin, the company is preparing to grow on up to 342 acres of land in Oregon, 300 acres in Arizona, hundreds of acres in North Carolina (a combination of hemp and kenaf), and an undetermined amount in other states. He says collective sales from all of these grows will be extremely significant in terms of pre-rolls, high CBD buds, distillate, isolate and biomass. “This year, we anticipate the main function of the company to be sales and marketing as we will have completed the infrastructure to support sales and marketing. Right now, I believe we have the largest footprint of bio-diverse hemp products with vertical integration in the hemp industry in America today. We are always looking for joint ventures where we have or can expand our footprint,” commented Perlowin.
Moreover, “A to Z” services for the farmers are available – from harvesting to drying, curing, bucking, machine trimming, hand trimming, bagging, storing, nitrogen sparging, and selling… creating a “one stop shop” for the small to large family farms.
Division Two Products:
The King of HempTM Pre-Roll BlendsHigh premium CBD buds from the Rogue Valley in Southern Oregon, North Carolina, and ArizonaHemp, Inc. will also be starting the Hempathon at the Veteran Village Kins Community in Arizona. Contestants will be able to grow 1 acre of hemp in a contest with other growers from around the country. Hemp, Inc. will provide land, water, security, and live streaming video coverage for participants. The Hempathon entry fee is $5,000 and a 50/50 revenue split. Several awards and prizes will be given to the winners. Those interested in signing up for the Hempathon should contact Devi Barnard dbarnard@hempinc.com.
Division Three – The Hemp Extraction & Pre-Roll Blending Infrastructure
The Hemp CBD Oil Extraction & Pre-Roll Blending Infrastructure (Division Three) originally consisted of a Supercritical C02 Extractor. After operating for over a year it has been determined that Hemp, Inc. will not be involved in the extraction industry and has changed its direction to focus primarily on the King of Hemp pre-rolls and The King of Hemp high CBD smokeable flower. The CBD oil that was extracted from the 2018 hemp grows in North Carolina has been made into pure crystalline CBD isolate which will add to our “King of HempTM” branded line of pre-rolls to take to the marketplace and a pre-roll fortified with pure crystalline CBD isolate. 
In lieu of building its own extraction laboratories, Hemp, Inc. plans to utilize the facilities of other labs in the industry to manufacture its own line of CBD oil products while they continue to build and expand the infrastructure for pre-rolls and high CBD smokeable buds. The Company will hire or joint venture with other, already existing, labs to manufacture CBD, CBG, CBC, CBN, and other products in its future cannabinoid line. With 150 different cannabinoids, over 300 terpenes, and more of each being discovered almost monthly, the product range and possibilities in this area are endless. 
Division Four – The Hemp Educational InfrastructureThe Hemp Educational Infrastructure (Division Four) includes Hemp, Inc.’s Hemp University which focuses on educating and empowering Hemp farmers and entrepreneurs with knowledge, processing, infrastructure, and support. The educational seminars, through the Hemp University, are held periodically and teach farmers and landowners how to create a profitable income stream by maximizing the per-acre crop revenue. Through this division, Hemp, Inc. has trained well over 500 farmers in its first two years by doing a total of nine Hemp University seminars in North Carolina and Oregon, thus far, which include: The New Leaf Symposium and Golden Grow Awards Gala – January 26, 2020 (Jacksonville, Oregon)
“The New Leaf Symposium’s” focus was “Regeneration” to celebrate optimism and resilience in the industry, the power of the plant, and faith in the hemp-producing community. The event sold out with over 180 attendees. The feedback from attendees was overwhelmingly positive and the speakers were hailed as the best yet. The educational symposium concluded with the “Golden Grow Awards Gala”. The Golden Grow Awards Gala honored Oregon’s top cultivars and put Oregon’s best farmers head-to-head for some of the most prestigious hemp-industry accolades.  (See Bruce Perlowin’s personal Facebook post on 1/28/20 for a short video on this symposium.)The Pre-Harvest Symposium – September 8, 2019 (Oregon)“The Pre-Harvest Symposium” workshop at Southern Oregon University was expertly designed for both farmers and entrepreneurs of all experience levels, focused on harvesting, processing and profit channels within the hemp industry. The third edition of the Southern Oregon Hemp University brought an abundance of insight into innovations within the realm of harvesting and processing to the forefront. Additionally, the symposium touched on traditional practices in agriculture. (See Bruce Perlowin’s personal Facebook post on 9/9/19 for a short video on this symposium.)Pre-Plant Support Workshop – May 4, 2019 (Oregon)“The Pre-Plant Support Workshop” was an incredible success that filled the entire venue to capacity with attendees. In total, there were close to 200 attendees, including 20 vendors in attendance. The workshop was designed to help hemp farmers or those who are interested in the hemp industry learn the best pre-planting practices prior to the planting season. The Hemp University Pre-Planting Support Workshop was an interactive and informative workshop that covered the various details hemp farmers should know prior to planting in the 2019 season and beyond. (See Bruce Perlowin’s personal Facebook post on 5/9/19 for a short video on this workshop.)The Hemp University Educational Seminar – March 23, 2019 (Oregon)This was the first Hemp University held on the West Coast.  The seminar provided attendees with a full day of networking, education, and support. The seminar helped others in the area who were interested in the hemp industry learn more about the “Industrial Hemp Revolution” and how this movement can not only transform Southern Oregon’s economy, but also revive family farms and small businesses in the surrounding areas. (See Bruce Perlowin’s personal Facebook post on 3/28/19 for a short video on this seminar.)Growing Hemp for Profit – March 10, 2018 – (North Carolina)
The Hemp University’s first educational symposium event of 2018 entitled “Growing Hemp for Profit” took place on Saturday, March 10, 2018. Attendees learned from the University’s industrial hemp experts as they shared their lessons from their experiences in growing industrial hemp. “Growing Hemp for Profit,” which took place from 8:30 am to 5 pm at the Hilton Garden Inn in Charlotte, North Carolina. (See Bruce Perlowin’s personal Facebook post on 3/17/18 for a short video on this symposium.)Hemp Money Event: Economics, Lessons & Planning for 2018 – December 2, 2017 – (North Carolina)The fifth most vital and anticipated educational symposium of the year was Hemp Money Event: Economics, Lessons & Planning for 2018. This symposium was held on Saturday, December 2, 2017 from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm at the Shrine Club (320 Airport Rd, Rocky Mount, NC 27804). Attendees learned the economics of growing industrial hemp for fiber, seeds, and CBD; learned about other master POD growers’ experiences and lessons; and, learned how to prepare for the 2018 industrial hemp growing season with a well-defined blueprint for success. (See Bruce Perlowin’s personal Facebook post on 12/23/17 for a short video on this symposium.)The Hemp Oil Event: The Art and Science of CBD Oil – September 30, 2017 (North Carolina)The Hemp Oil Event (The Art & Science of CBD Oil) was The Hemp University’s fourth symposium in North Carolina, held on Saturday, September 30, 2017 from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm at the Peachtree Hills Country Club, 3512 Peachtree Hills Road, Spring Hope, NC 27882.  The symposium brought attendees up to speed on all business and scientific aspects of Industrial Hemp CBD cannabinoids by disseminating current, reliable information that continues to shape the revolutionary CBD market. Attendees also got a chance to go to Hemp, Inc.’s, then, 70,000 square foot multipurpose industrial hemp decortication facility for the first live public demonstration of its Supercritical CO2 Extraction System using North Carolina-grown CBD industrial hemp. Representatives from NuAxon Bioscience were also on-site to allow those interested in purchasing their own CBD extraction system. (See Bruce Perlowin’s personal Facebook post on 9/30/17 for a short video on this symposium.)The Art and Science of CBD Greenhouse Growing – June 24, 2017 (North Carolina)The 3rd Hemp University educational symposium held on June 24, 2017 focused on The Art and Science of CBD Greenhouse Growing. The educational symposium was held at Louisburg College in Louisburg, North Carolina. A team of experts engaged attendees through the greenhouse and indoor growing process from cultivation to harvest and from processing to distribution. Dr. Robert Bruck, Dean of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and Distinguished Professor of Environmental Science at Louisburg College, was The Hemp University’s special guest who lectured on soil microbiology during the symposium. Attendees were able to spend half of the course at Hemp, Inc.’s, then, 70,000 square-foot Industrial Hemp Hub, in a 3,000 square-foot cloning room. There, attendees had the opportunity to experience a more hands-on learning approach. (See Bruce Perlowin’s personal Facebook post on 6/30/17 for a short video on this symposium.)Farming Hemp for ProfitTM – April 29, 2017  (North Carolina)Hemp, Inc.’s second, sold out, educational symposium (Farming HEMP for Profit), through its Hemp University, was a phenomenal success. The symposium took place on Saturday, April 29, 2017, from 8:30 am – 5:00 pm, at the Hampton Inn & Suites located at 3920 Arrow Drive, Raleigh, NC 27612 and drew over 100 attendees. The one-day educational symposium and tour of Hemp, Inc.’s, then, 70,000 square-foot multipurpose industrial hemp facility was an opportunity for landowners and farmers to learn how to apply real business building tactics with a “specific step-by-step blueprint” on how to grow, sell and profit from farming industrial hemp. This event accomplished its mission to help landowners and farmers add a new viable and profitable income stream by maximizing the per-acre crop revenue. (See Bruce Perlowin’s personal Facebook post on 4/30/17 for a short video on this symposium.)Farming Hemp for ProfitTM – March 18, 2017 (North Carolina)This was Hemp, Inc.’s first Hemp University symposium.  The symposium was a sold out event and was a huge success with 100 attendees who rated the quality of information presented as excellent. The symposium took place on Saturday, March 18, 2017, from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm, at Hemp, Inc.’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC, located at 1436 Highway 581 North, Spring Hope, North Carolina, 27882. The one-day educational symposium was an opportunity for landowners and farmers to receive a “specific step-by-step blueprint” on how to grow, sell and profit from farming industrial hemp by using real business tactics and principles, presented by industry experts. (See Bruce Perlowin’s personal Facebook posts on 3/18-19 and 3/21-26, 2019 for a short videos on this symposium.)To listen to past Hemp University workshops, please visit hemp-university.teachable.com. Also visit https://www.hempincpresents.com to see highlights from Hemp, Inc.’s inaugural Hemp University held in North Carolina, which sold out in two weeks. The Hemp University’s twelve online educational masterclasses are $10 each and each masterclass is under an hour in length. The online courses include lectures from industry leaders who have educated attendees at the Hemp University workshops in Oregon. These online masterclasses provide farmers who were either not able to attend the first Hemp University or who would like to revisit certain topics presented by the event speakers.Those interested in attending, presenting or showcasing at Hemp, Inc.’s Hemp University, for Oregon, may contact Chris Tinney via email (ctinney@hempinc.com). For other states and to be part of our online courses, all experts in any aspect of the industrial hemp industry, contact Chris Tinney on (855) 554-6834 or via email at (ctinney@hempinc.com).“Since The Hemp University’s initial launch with the educational symposium, the number of attendees has grown tremendously and it has been an overwhelming success, each time. The 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. It’s the perfect mix of quality instruction, relevant educational content and a high level of commitment, to ensure the educational success of each attendee,” said Perlowin.
Thus far, The Hemp University has helped transform the livelihoods of North Carolina and Oregon farmers transitioning from tobacco and other crops to industrial hemp by providing them with the tools and support needed to gain a foothold in this burgeoning industry.  
Division Five – The Hemp Marketing Infrastructure
While marketing is a critical facet of any business operation for increasing revenues, Hemp, Inc. believes there must be a keen focus on the infrastructure first.  The demand for CBD and hemp products is massive, some even say the demand is insatiable. In order to supply that type of volume/demand, there has to be a strong foundation or infrastructure in place.  While Hemp, Inc. is poised to grow a rock solid Hemp Marketing Infrastructure, CEO Perlowin reminds us that this infrastructure has to be able to support a meteoric industry growth.  The cannabidiol (CBD) market is on track to grow to $23.7 billion through 2023, according to the Brightfield Group.  The firm also estimated the smokeable hemp market to be valued at $11.5 million in 2018, a growth of 250% from 2017. “This is why we focus on infrastructure, at the moment, more so than specific marketing activities,” says Perlowin. “Specific marketing activities isn’t the issue.  The ability to grow, process and produce what the marketplace is demanding is the issue and hence the reason we focused on creating the infrastructure first.”
Late January, 2020 the first King of Hemp StoreTM had a soft launch in Kingman, Arizona with a grand opening, red ribbon, lots of media coverage planned for early March 2020.  This 5,000 square foot Wells Fargo bank building is in the heart of Old Town Kingman next to historic Route 66 and will showcase everything hemp, including Hemp Blue’s hemp denim jeans (www.hempblue.com).
The company has also recently joint-ventured with the retail store “Hemp Healthcare”, in Dolan Springs, Arizona, to sell high-end cannabidiol (CBD) and hemp-based products. “Hemp Healthcare” is home to an array of renowned CBD and hemp products, including Hemp, Inc.’s cosmetic and wellness line that includes shampoos, conditioners, lotions, candles and more. The retail storefront is conveniently located off Highway 93 in Arizona, in a highly trafficked tourist area. Specifically located on Pierce Ferry Road, “Hemp Healthcare” is next to “Dolan Station” – a location that welcomes numerous tour buses daily with visitors from around the world that stop there on trips to the Grand Canyon. On some days, up to 40 tour buses stop at this location, filled to the brim with tourists on their way to the Sky Walk at the western realm of the Grand Canyon.
A second health care store will be opened in 2020 at Gateway Station in Dolan Springs, Arizona on Highway 93 about a quarter of a mile before the turn off to go the Sky Walk at the western realm of the Grand Canyon. Like Dolan Station, Gateway Station will have numerous tour buses.  The store is set to sell shampoos, conditioners, lotions, candles and more.
Division Six – Accessories, Products and Services 
Division Six focuses on the sale of hemp industry accessories such as the sale of extractors, harvesters, storage bags, containers, fertilizer, soil amendments, humidifiers, dehumidifiers, balers, greenhouses, and greenhouse equipment; the drying, trimming, curing, storing and brokering for other farmers harvesting hemp; and ultimately anything else a hemp farmer may need to be successful. 
“What we found is that people are always looking for hundreds of items. New harvesting equipment, irrigation equipment of all kinds, soil amendments, organic soil fertilizers, organic pest control products, new extraction technologies and more,” said Perlowin. “As we expand this Division, we will strive to become the Amazon of the hemp industry.” 
According to Perlowin, Hemp, Inc. is currently building out a new section of its website that will list all of the products. This information will be available in the next 30 days.
Division Seven – Research and Development 
While Research and Development has been an integral part of Hemp, Inc. since day one, a more formal research and development project is planned after significant revenues are created. This division will then start and expand rapidly. The Company originally planned for Puerto Rico to be a research and development hub, but found the barrier to entrance was much too great and has, therefore, changed its position to focus its research and development division on states where hemp is already legal. Hemp, Inc. is proud to have been a pioneer and leader in the early stages of the hemp industry in America with our strategy to build infrastructure even before legalization occurred in a state such as what was done in North Carolina and Arizona.
According to Hemp, Inc.’s CEO, Bruce Perlowin, “Currently, it is now economically more advantageous to operate in a state that already has several years of legalization behind it and thus, further down the road, making it easier for hemp companies to thrive as we have done in North Carolina, Arizona, Nevada and especially Oregon. We’ve hit a grand slam in Oregon, so to speak, in our growing operations for 2 consecutive years. We may revisit Puerto Rico once they have straightened out their legal red tape, and their rules and regulations.”
Division Eight – Industrial Hemp Investments and Joint Ventures
Hemp, Inc. recently established the eighth division (Industrial Hemp Investments and Joint Ventures).  Since the passing of the 2018 hemp bill, Hemp, Inc. has been flooded with inquiries of people who want to invest in the hemp industry but don’t know where to start. As the Avant-guard of the industrial hemp industry, Hemp, Inc. has put together numerous joint venture investment opportunities for the medium to large-scale investor. Those who are interested should email ir@hempinc.com. Multi-million dollar investors, and in some cases billionaires and billion dollar hedge funds, are aggressively trying to get into the hemp industry since the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill. Our joint venture agreements are that they put up the money and we put up the expertise in a 50/50 revenue share (after all the initial investment money is paid back first).  This will save the large-scale hemp investor often two years and dozens of multi-million dollar mistakes that they “WILL” often make without an expert in the hemp industry. This is where Hemp, Inc.’s vast network of experts and resources in the industrial hemp industry come into play because this is something we can easily provide to those interested in entering this industry.
Division Nine Industrial Hemp Consulting
Hemp, Inc.’s Industrial Hemp and Medical Marijuana Consulting Company (IHMMCC) was recently restructured as its ninth division and is now “Division Nine – Industrial Hemp Consulting”. With an influx of public companies wanting to expand into the industrial hemp industry, Hemp, Inc. has been inundated with potential consulting agreements. To keep up, Hemp, Inc. revamped its consulting division to work hands-on with each company to provide its years of expertise. According to Perlowin, there is definitely a sense of a “Community of Companies” whereby a lot of companies are working together to pool their resources, marketing connections, and strategies in order to grow simultaneously.Typically, companies seeking in-depth consulting services from Hemp, Inc. pay mostly in stock since cash flow is oftentimes tight during the developmental stage of start-up companies in this industry. Through Hemp, Inc.’s Division Nine – Industrial Hemp Consulting, a wide range of services are forged from the experiences of creating the first publicly trading company in the cannabis sector (Medical Marijuana, Inc.) and having well over a decade of experience in the industrial hemp industry’s public sector. Perlowin, Hemp, Inc.’s chief executive officer, also has over five decades in the industry.Division Ten – Educational EntertainmentHemp, Inc.’s newest division, Entertainment, will cover everything from investing in the movie “The Adventures of the King of Pot” (http://www.kingofpotthemovie.com/) and other historical movies, books, and documentaries representing our industry up to the current docuseries being made on “The Modern Day History of Hemp”.  Those interested in investing in any one of these ventures should contact the division’s Project Manager, Chris Tinney, at 855-554-6834 or via email, ctinney@hempinc.com.VETERAN VILLAGE KINS COMMUNITIES

The company’s 500-acre strategic growing partner Veteran Village Kins Community in Golden Valley, Arizona, is designed to grow hemp and produce CBD products to benefit veterans as well as generate revenue for Hemp, Inc., the Veteran Village and individual veterans living in the community. 
The Veteran Village Kins Community in Arizona has completed its final site plan blueprints for its 500-acre site in Golden Valley, Arizona (20 miles north of Kingman, AZ and 90 minutes from Las Vegas, NV). The site plan was submitted to the Mohave County Building Department for final review. The Company is also in the final stages of completing the necessary infrastructure to support an off-grid, renewable, energy system. 
As soon as all the live streaming video cameras are up and operational, the world can actually see the way the Veteran Village Kins Community is designed and watch it being built. According to Perlowin, the basic framework or overall plan of the Veteran Village Kins Communities is to create a holistic healing and learning center that is designed to educate and heal veterans with PTSD, alcoholism, meth addiction, opioid addiction, and other psychological conditions while at the same time training them on the numerous aspects of being part of the emerging multi-billion dollar hemp industry.

These particular communities are all synergistically aligned to work simultaneously supporting each other.
For example, the “Healers” heal the traumatized veterans and women & children; the women support orphan children, and orphan children want to see people living in homes and not homeless. Thus, a portion of the hemp grown in each community goes to create and support another community, giving everybody a sense of giving back and helping others as they help themselves. This circles back to the healers who also work to heal the veterans and the other traumatized groups. This is the economic foundation on how the sale of the hemp products operates as a “quantum economic matrix” or an example of “symbiotic economics” which is more complex than this brief description allows.
Dwight Jory, the Project Manager for the “Veteran Village Kins Community Arizona, Inc.”, said, “We are very happy with the progress. Our Kins Community is really beginning to come together.” In anticipation of planting to begin during the spring, 300 acres have been fenced, 16 overnight trailer park sites are under construction, and six 40×40-ft organic vegetable gardens have been planted and are currently producing food and kenaf, according to Jory. These organic gardens double as experimental growing modules using an entire array of different growing technologies to see which modalities grow the best in a desert environment. As for the 6 geodesic domes mentioned in an earlier press release, 1 is structurally complete with only the electrical and plumbing to be completed. The rest are on site awaiting final site plan approval.
“We are now accepting volunteers who have expressed an interest in helping to build the first Kins Community for our veterans,” said Jory. Those interested in making the first hemp growing CBD-producing “Veteran Village Kins Community” become a reality should contact Ms. Sandra Williams via email (swilliams@hempinc.com).
One thousand trees, on 36 of the 500-acres, have also been planted, with an additional 1,000 trees on order. The “Veteran Village Kins Community” will include a 100,000-square foot GMP compliant, central processing plant, a state-of-the-art testing laboratory, and various health and wellness centers to support veterans who may have psychological, emotional or health issues.
“As Hemp, Inc. positions itself on the forefront of America’s industrial hemp revolution, we see our partnership with ‘Veteran Village Kins Community Arizona, Inc.’ being paramount in supporting the small family farm movement that we are confident will reshape the American landscape,” said Perlowin. “As we work toward getting our eco-village up and running in Arizona, we are also aggressively scouting strategic locations in other states including North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee and West Virginia. Giving veterans and other Americans a place to learn new skills and take part in this multi-billion-dollar hemp CBD market is very exciting. It’s a big part of our mission to give back.  Recently we have expanded our Kins Community concept internationally focusing, but not limited to, Israel, New Zealand, Canada, Africa, and Uruguay.”
Hemp, Inc. executives are also continuing to scout new locations nationwide to open additional hemp processing centers in legal markets.PRESS COVERAGEBetween the Hemp University, the hemp processing center and Bruce Perlowin himself, the Company has created an enormous amount of media coverage.

The content will be wholly-owned by Hemp, Inc. 2 Manifest Studio Director Joseph Trivigno and his team have been tracking Hemp, Inc.’s progress, as executives meet with farmers throughout the country to document the company’s expansion into new markets.  The documentary is expected to be released by 2020. The docuseries is expected to follow the film’s release. The film crew will also capture hemp developments in markets around the globe.THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEMP AND MARIJUANAHemp is completely different from marijuana in its function, cultivation and application. In cultivating marijuana, the plants are spaced far apart, and the male plants are destroyed to assure that they cannot seed the female plants, which would result in undesirable, less potent and less marketable, seeded marijuana buds. Hemp, on the other hand, is planted close together and commonly hermaphrodites, which creates an abundance of seeds, the main component of Hemp foods and supplements. The Hemp stalks are processed and used for fiber, composite, and other hemp based end products.Hemp is used in a variety of other applications that marijuana couldn’t possibly be used in. These include healthy dietary supplements, skin products, clothing, and accessories. Overall, hemp is known to have over 25,000 possible applications. Hemp products such as Hemp Milk, Hemp Cereal, and Hemp Oil are used by consumers every day.For an excellent read on the difference between hemp and marijuana, visit the Ministry of Hemp.HOW HEMP CAN CHANGE THE WORLDFiber – Hemp fiber can be used to make fabrics and textiles, rope and paper. The word ‘canvas’ actually derives from the word cannabis.Fuel – While the industrial, medicinal and commercial properties of hemp have been known to mankind for a very long time, its benefits to the environment have just been realized in recent years. One of the compelling things hemp offers is fuel. With reserves of petroleum being depleted, it would be nice if we could have a fuel source which was reusable and which we could grow right here, making us completely energy independent.Food – Hemp seeds are very nutritious and were first thought to be eaten by the Ancient Chinese and Indians. Hemp seeds have a nutty taste and can be eaten raw, ground up, sprouted, or made into dried sprout powder. Hemp seeds also contain a very beneficial oil that is high in unsaturated fatty acids, including an optimal 1:4 ratio of omega-3 to 6.Building Material – Hemp can be made into a variety of building materials. These include concrete-like blocks called ‘hempcrete’, biodegradable plastics, and wood replacements. These materials have been used in the manufacture of many things, including electronics, cars and houses. In fact, the first American home made of hemp-based materials was completed in August 2010 in Asheville, North Carolina.Biofuel – Remarkably, the oil from hemp seeds and stalks can also be made into biofuels such as Biodiesel — sometimes known as ‘hempoline’. While this biofuel can be used to power engines, it does take quite a lot of raw material to produce a substantial amount.SUBSCRIBE TO HEMP, INC.’S VIDEO UPDATESHemp, Inc.

Sixth Wave Files Patent Application for Rapid Detection of Emerging Viral Outbreaks such as COVID-19

Newsfile

Published

on

  • Proposed Rapid Detection Test for viral outbreaks such as COVID-19 is based on previously developed Molecularly Imprinted Polymer platform.
  • Testing platform has the objective of detecting the presence of viruses without relying on the existence of antibodies, which can take weeks to be present in the body.
  • Testing platform could be rapidly adopted to test for both new viruses and mutations of previously discovered viruses.
  • Potential for colorimetric response could provide indication as to the presence of virus within minutes.
  • Team previously developed Explosive Detection Wipes, which produced colorimetric changes within 30 seconds upon contact with bomb making materials.

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – April 3, 2020) –  Sixth Wave Innovations Inc. (CSE: SIXW) (OTC Pink: ATURF) (FSE: AHUH) (“Sixth Wave” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has filed Patent Application Number 63000977 – The Use of Molecularly Imprinted Polymers for the Rapid Detection of Emerging Viral Outbreaks, such as SARS-CoV-2 virus responsible for COVID-19, with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (the “Accelerated Detection MIPs” or “AMIPs“).

COVID-19 & the Need for Rapid Diagnostics

Viral pandemics such as COVID-19 are a rapidly emerging threat to global security and economic stability. Unlike bacterial infections which have a wide range of developed antibiotic therapies, new viral infections have very few pre-existing treatments. The World Health Organization has correspondingly noted a public health emergency and an urgent need for rapid diagnostics, vaccines and therapeutics to detect, prevent and contain the COVID-19 virus. The success of these remediation efforts will depend largely upon early detection, proactive and preventive measures, attempting to contain the rate of viral growth until customized treatments can be developed and made available.

One of the primary factors leading to the outbreak of COVID-19 virus has been the relative lack of rapid diagnostic tools. The development of effective early stage diagnostics for COVID-19 has consumed valuable time in which lives are at stake, with significant issues remaining regarding access to testing several months after the virus was first identified. This breakdown and delay in testing capacity has resulted in a failed containment effort, conservatively estimated to have resulted in hundreds of thousands of otherwise avoidable infections. With improved preventive strategies, including early response and testing capabilities, the rapid rate of viral expansion and the shortfall of medical supplies now being experienced can be more effectively contained, managed and ameliorated.

Rapid Diagnostic Technologies

A promising area of preventive strategies is the use of Rapid Diagnostic Technologies (“RDTs“), tools designed to quickly and accurately diagnose the active virus. Many forms of RDT utilize Polymerase Chain Reaction (“PCR“) methodologies, processes which can require highly trained laboratory staff and processing times ranging from hours to days, thereby offsetting their efficacy as rapid response diagnostic tools. Another promising RDT for the diagnosis of COVID-19 is Immunoassay Technology (“IAT“), a highly effective and easy to use diagnostic platform. However, IAT relies on the detection of antigens or antibodies which can take days or weeks to develop within the body, with the result that a person can be contagious and spreading the virus prior to detection.

Sixth Wave’s patent application contemplates the development of a flexible platform for the rapid deployment of RDTs for new viral threats. This AMIPs technology could have all of the advantages of traditional PCR and IAT diagnostics, with the potential to be developed, deployed and scaled in a fraction of the time.

The Sixth Wave Solution

This proposed AMIPs device would generate an instant colorimetric response, or change in color, in order to indicate the presence of COVID-19 and other viruses. This visual confirmation capability is a feature of other prior Sixth Wave technologies, most notably the Company’s explosives detection wipes and bacterial pathogen detection swabs.

The AMIPs technology proposes a flexible and scalable development platform, able to adapt to the demands of detecting constantly evolving viral strains beyond COVID-19. To accomplish this, Sixth Wave plans to build a database of MIPs, prepared using viral surrogates and/or inactive strains, and based on the general shape, size and morphology of generic classes of known viruses (the “AMIPs Library“). This database will comprise a reference inventory, ready for immediate deployment in the screening of new or emerging viral threats, and minimizing the response time required to issue new diagnostics.

The patent application draws significantly upon Sixth Wave’s prior experience in Molecular Imprinted Polymers (“MIPs“). The selective binding capabilities of MIPs are well documented in literature and have even been referred to as “plastic antibodies”. Sixth Wave has a proven record in the detection and binding of target analytes using MIP technology. The Company has successfully developed a similar MIPs-based rapid detection test for improvised explosives (the “Explosive Detection Wipes” or “EDW“). The EDW platform is highly effective and simple to use, providing fast colorimetric indication of 36 target analytes, all while using a single-use wipe. As with the virus detection platform, accuracy in explosives detection is paramount, with lives at stake, and the technology has been noted for delivering zero false positives during field use.

“Now more than ever, the reality of an interconnected world means there is a desperate need to quickly identify and stem the tide of emerging pandemic outbreaks,” said Dr. Jonathan Gluckman, President & CEO of Sixth Wave. “Rapid detection, the ability to instantly assess the threat of viral contact, and tools of early intervention are crucial to the containment of new viruses. We hope this technology will revolutionize how we get ahead of pandemics like COVID-19 and other future novel viruses, preventing their spread and mitigating the social and economic losses.”

The AMIPs Advantage

The proposed AMIPs platform uses a branch of nanotechnology known as MIPs, a versatile materials science which can be engineered into many physical configurations, including adherence to a wipe, suspension in an assay, or affixed to a membrane for lateral flow testing. The proposed testing device can be envisioned as a cartridge-type system where the format, detection method and sampling/detection process is the same for all threats. The interchangeable component would be the molecular recognition chemistry which would be unique to each new threat.

This platform prospectively offers a number of advantages over existing methods of viral detection and containment. These include:

(i) Rapid Deployment – The AMIPs system will be designed for rapid response and to be the first diagnostic test available for a new viral outbreak. Based on the Company’s prior experience in MIPs formulations, the development cycle of any new AMIPs product will prospectively be less than 30 days, from identification of a new viral threat to an AMIPs detection product in the hands of front line healthcare providers. The format of the rapidly deployable AMIPs is a multi-welled micropipette dish with Sixth Wave’s unique viral MIPs coated on the bottom of the wells. This cartridge design would make it possible to screen against multiple classes of viruses with the flexibility to use several known off the shelf detection chemistries for the colorimetric response.

(ii) Compatible with Multiple Target Analytes – With the AMIPs system, Sixth Wave proposes to directly detect viral particles. Further, the AMIPs platform is planned to be compatible with detecting other components unique to a particular virus such as DNA, RNA, proteins, small molecules, and antibodies. This powerful and comprehensive platform would give scientists multiple pathways to detect a virus to give the best performance and diagnostic capabilities.

(iii) Fast, Accurate & Easy to Use – The second potential platform for the AMIPs technology would be lateral flow tests, similar to using a pregnancy test. The colorimetric response would allow for quick, qualitative analysis without mixing reagents, complex machines, or even power requirements for a fast, easy-to-use, and reliable response that requires little, if any, training. First responders, caregivers, and even the patients themselves, could potentially perform the test and receive results in minutes.

(iv) Durable, Affordable & Mass Producible – MIPs are based on a synthetic polymer, allowing for extended shelf life, minimal storage and handling requirements, and less sensitivity to temperature and light degradation relative to antibodies used in traditional IAT products. The MIPs formulations could be applied to several inexpensive consumables to provide low cost, mass production pathways for real-time qualitative or quantitative analysis, depending on device format.

(v) Flexible, Scalable & Adaptable – The AMIPs platform would allow for rapid reconfiguration, including the testing of any bodily fluid containing the virus, screening for multiple infections in just one test, and even testing surfaces to reduce the spread of contamination. The technology proposes to detect whole classes of viruses, allowing researchers to deploy the diagnostics without actually cultivating antigens or antibodies specific to a particular new virus strain. The AMIPs Library anticipates other viral threats and prepares for rapid and responsive development of new products based on this existing platform.

About the AMIPs Library

Adapted from other Sixth Wave commercial applications, AMIPs relies on MIP methodologies to identify and trap specific analytes. Formed with a 3D mold of the targeted analyte, MIPs can be applied to generate a variety of effective sensors, each with the ability to display a visual confirmation. For a viral threat such as COVID-19, recognition of the intact virus would be the most efficient process timewise using a MIP that recognizes and binds to the virus.

However, in anticipation of forthcoming new viral strains, clearly there will be no time to develop a novel MIP after a new outbreak has occurred. To avoid such delays and develop new diagnostic products on minimal turnaround, the Company plans to develop the AMIPs Library as a database of MIPs based on the general shape, size, and morphology of generic classes of viruses. In this way, future delays in diagnostics are avoided, with the potential for new generations of interchangeable AMIPs cartridges or wipes using the same physical format, detection method, and sampling process as prior generations.

The ultimate goal is a flexible platform that can be continuously altered to meet the demands of constantly evolving viral strains. The AMIPs inventory would be proactive, readily available for screening against plausible new threats. The most selective MIP for any emergent virus would be incorporated into a previously defined delivery platform. The chemical manufacturing process would be known, and direct scale-up to manufacture could be initiated immediately and applied to kits amenable to mass production.

TransCanna to Rely on Temporary Blanket Relief for Required Filings

Newsfile

Published

on

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – April 3, 2020) – TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN) (FSE: TH8) (“TransCanna” or the “Company“) today announces that it anticipates a delay in the filing of the financial statements required pursuant to Part 4 of National Instrument 51-102 Continuous Disclosure Obligations (the “Instrument“) as a result of the completion by the Company of the recent acquisitions of Tres Ojos Naturals LLC (dba Soldaze), and Lyfted Farms, Inc. in the Fall of 2019, both US corporations, as new subsidiaries of the Issuer.

The delay is due to the Company’s new management’s difficulties in coordinating with the auditor the collection of all of the required data and documentation to complete the audit on a consolidated basis. As well, certain key persons who are needed to complete the audit are being affected by the current COVID-19 pandemic due to self-isolation requirements.

The Instrument requires that the Company’s audited financial statements and MD&A for the fiscal year ended November 30, 2019 be filed by March 29, 2020 (“Original Filing Deadline“). The Company and its auditor are in the process of completing the required audit work to complete these audited financial statements and associated MD&A (collectively, the “Required Filings“). The Company expects that the Required Filings will be completed and filed on or before April 30, 2020.

In these circumstances, and considering the anticipated delay in making the Required Filings within the time period mandated by the Instrument, the Company intends to rely upon the temporary blanket relief afforded by Canadian securities regulators to extend the date for the filing of the Required Filings for up to 45 days from the date of the Original Filing Deadline.

During the period that the Required Filings remain outstanding, TransCanna’s management and other insiders are subject to a trading black-out policy that reflects the principles in section 9 of National Policy 11-207 Failure-to-File Cease Trade Orders and Revocations in Multiple Jurisdictions.

The Company confirms that there have been no other material business developments since August 31, 2019, the date of the Company’s last filed third quarter interim consolidated financial statements, other than the two business acquisitions described above.
