Hemp, Inc. to Sell High-End CBD Hemp Through Joint Venture with Dolan Station Retail Storefront

Share:

SPRING HOPE, NC, July 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hemp, Inc. (OTC:HEMP), a global leader in the industrial hemp industry with the largest multipurpose industrial hemp processing facility in the western hemisphere, announced today that Hemp, Inc. has entered a joint venture with Dolan Station in Dolan Springs, Arizona to sell high-end CBD and Hemp, Inc. products. This will be the first store to carry Hemp, Inc.'s, soon to be launched,  "King of Hemp™" high-end CBD hemp pre-rolls and hemp buds sold by the gram (a "nickel bag"), 8th (a "dime"), quarter-ounce, half-ounce, and one-ounce (or "a lid").

Dolan Station is a retail storefront conveniently located off Highway 93, which is routinely used by tourists traveling from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon Skywalk, the Grand Canyon West's premier attraction. One of the seven natural wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon receives nearly 5 million tourists a year, according to CNBC.

Hemp, Inc. is also in talks with Dolan Station management to grow industrial hemp on eight acres near the second storefront location that is also off of Highway 93. Arizona Governor Doug Ducey recently signed senate bill (SB) 1098 "providing funding for the Arizona Department of Agriculture's (AZDA) agricultural pilot program allowing universities and those with a license from AZDA to begin cultivating industrial hemp." Industrial hemp grown under the pilot program would be an agricultural product that requires a grower, harvester, transporter or processor to obtain a license from the AZDA.

Dolan Station is also less than 12 miles from Hemp, Inc.'s strategic hemp growing partner Veteran Village Kins Community Arizona, Inc., which 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.

Once the Veteran Village Kins Community in Golden Valley is operational, Hemp, Inc. management expects that future community residents and participants will be able to utilize Hemp, Inc.'s relationships with retail shops nationwide to sell products derived from hemp grown on the site. With the King of Hemp™ brand launching next month (August) in stores throughout Arizona, Nevada and Colorado, executives say they expect a feeding frenzy based on pre-market research done over the past few months. Dozens of storefronts have been visited by Hemp, Inc.'s Hemp Ambassadors and store owners are eagerly awaiting the brand.  Perlowin says that will kickstart ultimately massive channels of distribution for all the hemp grown well in advance of the Veteran Village Kins Community first hemp crop after it is harvested and processed.

Hemp, Inc. announced in May 2018 that Veteran Village Kins Community Arizona, Inc. had completed installation of a solar and wind-powered energy system for the community. Dozens of master growers from Arizona, Oregon, Colorado, California, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Nevada and various organizations have expressed an interest in pursuing a joint venture with Hemp, Inc. to each grow industrial hemp on the 300 fenced acres in Arizona as part of "The Great United American Hemp Project," where each grower will be farming five acres.

"This partnership with Dolan Station near the Veteran Village Kins Community is the first step toward building our nationwide retail infrastructure that will allow us to meet the rising demand for hemp-based products and CBD," said Hemp, Inc. CEO, Bruce Perlowin. "We strategically selected Dolan Springs to start carrying Hemp, Inc. products to capture the robust tourism market and because of its proximity to the Veteran Village Kins Community."

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 (scheduled near the end of July 2018), the world can actually see the way the Veterans Village Kins Community is designed and watch it being built. According to Perlowin, the basic framework or overall plan of the Veterans 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 (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." 

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.)
