Las Vegas, U.S.A. – Marijuana, incorporated is announcing its support of the third annual Hemp History Week which features more than 800 celebrations and promotions around the country. The campaign strives to educate consumers about the environmental advantages and nutritional benefits of hemp products.
The estimated annual retail sales of Hemp products in the United States are $419 million. Hemp products are sold in most major food stores and industrial Hemp is also used in textiles, skin care, building materials, and in bio-composites for auto parts such as in dashboards, seating, and doors. China is the largest producer followed by France and Canada is the closest hemp grower to the U.S.A. All money paid related to growing, harvesting, processing, packaging, and much of the shipping costs are paid to foreign countries because US farmers are not allowed to grow this crop. Every year demand grows and but while US retailers can participate, farmers are banned.
Hemp was legal to grow in the United States until 1937 when it was tied to its very different but similar variety, marijuana. According to Hemp, incorporated it remains committed to sharing the benefits of industrial hemp with the world and looks forward to the day when the American farmer can once again grow this crop and consumers can enjoy the benefits of locally grown nutritious hemp foods.
In honor of Hemp week and in accordance with the growth and evolution of Marijuana, Inc., the group has changed its name to Hemp, Inc. The change goes into effect immediately. The company’s business models and revenues will increasingly focus on the global market for hemp. CEO Bruce Perlowin stated, “With the acquisition of the exclusive licensing rights to the www.Hemp.com domain name providing a solid foundation for our stock symbol HEMP, it was a natural evolution. [The domain name] is a significant asset for Hemp, Inc. and they intend to implement a strategic marketing platform to greatly enhance the potential of website all the while working for the American farmers .”
Integral in the business plan is a new online store. The shopping cart will feature Hemp, Inc.’s Eco-Harmony Loyalty Card Rewards Program, offering consumers rebates on purchases. A significant portion of each sale will go to charities. “This is (r)evolutionary marketing,” said CEO Bruce Perlowin, “we can offer large rebates, giving our customers cash back while helping those who truly need it. One of the groups we support is Patch Adams’ charitable organization which is building a free hospital on 316 acres in Pocahontas county West Virginia. We take pride in promoting sustainable products and programs that improve the quality of life.”
The online store will showcase the Herbagenix line, a division of Hemp, Inc. Herbagenix Hemp Protein contains hemp, spirulina, AFA blue green algae, and a proprietary energy blend. Herbagenix also carries other products such as a male enhancement product.
Hemp.com will soon add a video platform for reporting breaking news, covering important events, and interviewing industry leaders, as well as creating media content for the entire industry. The seasoned filmmaking team that produces the video on www.MarijuanaInc.TV is expanding their roles to include work on www.Hemp.com.
“With this infrastructure now in place and operating smoothly, our name change reflects the fact we plan to replicate this achievement in the industrial hemp industry,” said CEO Perlowin.
President David Tobias claimed, “The innovative content of www.MarijuanaInc.TV has blazed a new path in the marijuana media and cannabis entertainment sector, and will continue to expand in all directions. Hemp, Inc. and www.MarijuanaInc.TV remain dedicated to all legitimate uses of the cannabis plant.”
As other Hemp, Inc. divisions roll out, the hemp theme will remain intact. Planned for later this year are a hemp clothing division, featuring a fashion line and a unique “back to the land” real estate division based on the popular Kin’s Domain movement. A beta test is underway for a Kins cottage industry producing hand crafted products from hemp and other sustainable materials.
