Hemp, Inc. Applauds Illinois Governor for Legalizing Industrial Hemp
SPRING HOPE, NC, Aug. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE - Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP), a global leader in the industrial hemp industry with the largest multipurpose industrial hemp processing facility in the western hemisphere, announced today the company applauds Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner for signing Illinois’ Industrial Hemp Act on Saturday, legalizing hemp in Illinois effective immediately.
“Legalizing the farming of industrial hemp just makes good sense,” Rauner said in a statement. “Roughly 38 states — including our neighbors in Wisconsin, Kentucky, Indiana, Missouri, and Tennessee — have allowed or are considering allowing cultivation of this crop for commercial, research or pilot programs. Our farmers should have this option as well.”
Illinois’ Industrial Hemp Act goes into effect immediately, and according to the governor’s office, allows for its use in paper, fabric, biodegradable plastics, construction materials, and health food. The Illinois Department of Agriculture will issue licenses to farmers who want to grow hemp and regulators will establish rules for THC-level testing of industrial hemp crops. The bill passed the state House of Representatives by a 106-3 vote, and the Senate passed it unanimously. Advocates of legalization say Rauner will create hundreds of jobs and up to $100 million in annual state revenue.
“It is encouraging to see that Governor Rauner understands that the cultivation and manufacturing of hemp in the United States is crucial to generate new jobs and grow our agricultural economy, empowering farmers both in Illinois and throughout the nation,” said Hemp, Inc. CEO Bruce Perlowin. “We live in a historic time where the movement to federally legalize hemp is gaining traction as states continue to pass pro-hemp legislation and a growing number of policy makers are moving to support legalizing hemp federally.”
Perlowin will be featured as a speaker at the Southeast Region Industrial Hemp Expo & Festival (Carolina Hemp Festival) event on Aug. 30– Sept. 1, 2018 at Raleigh Marriott Crabtree Valley event center in Raleigh, North Carolina. Perlowin is scheduled to speak at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 1, during the Hemp Festival taking place from 1 to 5 p.m. Click here to view the three-day event schedule. Perlowin is expected to discuss Hemp, Inc.’s mission and offerings with industrial hemp farmers, professionals, innovators, enthusiasts and advocates from the Southeast Region.
Notably, there are now over 40 states in the nation that have legalized hemp. Companies seeking to enter or further develop their footprint in the industrial hemp marketplace are aligning with Hemp, Inc. for the company’s proven expertise and state-of-the-art hemp processing and manufacturing infrastructure in Spring Hope, North Carolina. Hemp, Inc.’s 85,000 square foot hemp processing and manufacturing facility, on 59 acres, has been operational since August, 2017.
Hemp, Inc. is also helping to build the industrial hemp infrastructure that was basically non-existent in America. And five years later, it’s still in its infancy as our nation, gradually, embraces industrial hemp as a new emerging multi-trillion dollar industrial agricultural green revolution. Our focus has been on building five hemp infrastructures, Divisions One through Five.
Division One – The Industrial Hemp Infrastructure
Division Two – The Hemp Extraction Infrastructure
Division Three – The Hemp Farming Infrastructure
Division Four – The Hemp Educational Infrastructure
Division Five – The Hemp Marketing Infrastructure
Hemp, Inc.’s strategic hemp growing partner Veteran Village Kins Community Arizona, Inc. has a 500-acre Veteran Village Kins Community in Golden Valley, Arizona. The Veteran Village Kins Community is designed to grow hemp and produce cannabidiol (CBD) products to benefit veterans as well as generate revenue for Hemp, Inc., the Veteran Village, and individual veterans living in the community. Already a $100 million industry, the CBD market is expected to grow over 700% and balloon to $2.1 billion by 2020.
For a more complete description on the Veteran Village Kins Community, read the following, modified, October 24, 2017 press release, Hemp, Inc. Announces Strategic Hemp Growing Partner “Veteran Village Kins Community Arizona, Inc.” Completes Final Site Plan Blueprints, below:
Hemp, Inc. has announced that its strategic growing partner, “Veteran Village Kins Community Arizona, Inc.,” 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. With the solar equipment in place, the site’s solar power operation will be completed in the next days.
As soon as 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 PSTD, 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.
We will also be building hemp-growing communities for other groups such as “Abused” Women & Children Village Kins Communities, the “Orphaned” Children Village Kins Communities, “Homeless” Village Kins Communities and the “Healers” Village Kins Communities (the healers are professionals who are knowledgeable in the modalities to treat these traumatized groups). 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 40x40-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 (email@example.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.”
According to Perlowin, we hope to have 50 “master hemp growers” working on their first Veteran Village Kins Community in Arizona. To date, we have growers from Oregon, Colorado, California, Kentucky, North Carolina, Nevada and, Arizona who have expressed an interest in pursuing a joint venture with Hemp, Inc. to each grow industrial hemp on 5 of the 300 fenced acres in Arizona. Perlowin says he’ll call this “The Great United American Hemp Project.” Any grower having an interest in pursuing a joint venture on 5 of the 300 fenced in acres in Arizona should contact Project Manager Dwight Jory. Or, anyone interested in attending the 2 - 7-day hands-on hempcrete house building should contact Dwight Jory as well. (Dates to be determined.)
