THE GREAT AMERICAN HEMP GROW-OFF
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, Florida, 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 American Hemp Grow-Off.” 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 ([email protected]) as well.
The Grow-Off starts June 1, 2019 (the first day hemp will be legal to grow in Arizona) and also includes a Hemp University, up to every weekend, for the entire growing season. The Hemp University (in Arizona) will be held in a 60-foot geodesic dome that can seat up to 225 people.At the Great American Hemp Grow-Off, 2 Manifest Studios will be filming and interviewing all of the master growers and their grows on the Docuseries on the Modern Day History of Hemp.
“No wonder most of the growers I talk to want to come and be a part of this. They want to be a part of the Docuseries on the Modern Day History of Hemp because if they’re not there, history will pass them by,” said Perlowin.
The weekend Hemp University course, that will be taking place in the 60-ft geodesic dome, will now also include field trips out to the all the 5-acre hemp grows that are growing just 100 yards away. This hands on interactive educational experience is the chance of a lifetime for anyone to really learn about this new emerging multi-billion dollar hemp industry from hemp industry experts all over America.
A 44-ft geodesic dome will be set up as a vendor area selling a wide variety of products needed to grow industrial hemp. A 36-ft geodesic dome will be set up as a movie room to show movies, documentaries and courses on everything from bio-dynamic farming, permaculture, organic farming practices to bees, predator pest control, soil amendments, cloning, grafting and other peripheral agricultural course materials.
Lastly, the entire operation will have live streaming video capabilities so the whole world can tap in and see The Great American Hemp Grow-Off in real time. The winners of the Great American Hemp Grow-Off will share in the $100,000 prize money, in a variety of categories.Perlowin stated, “I run into literally dozens of people who are planning to grow between 50 and 10,000 acres of hemp this year. However, the majority of them do not have the experience to do this successfully. So rather than jump into the industrial hemp industry with potentially millions to be made, the best thing you could possibly do would be to grow 5 acres initially. (It costs $50,000 to participate in the Grow-Off and based on our experiences in Oregon, 5 acres can produce up to a million dollars or more of net profit.) It costs about $100,000 for 5 acres to plant, grow, harvest, and process, based on our experiences with our growers from Oregon last year.
The joint venture arrangement would be a 50/50 revenue split with Hemp, Inc. creating the probability that the grower could generate half a million dollars and Hemp, Inc. would also receive that same amount. This will not only generate a substantial revenue stream for Hemp, Inc. and its shareholders, it will also generate a nice return on investment (ROI) for the grow-off participants while they learn from industry experts all over America, over a four to six month period.” “A lot of participants are planning to bring their motor homes and camp out on location while others are electing to stay in a hotel in Las Vegas and take the 90-minute drive out to the land to The Hemp University seminars or in Kingman, Arizona just 20 miles away.
Parking your motorhome out on the land and/or camping out is free of charge. We are thinking of having small concerts at night, sing-a-longs, and campfires, as well as other entertainment and speakers to give an enhanced value to the Great American Hemp Grow-Off. There is no better way to learn about industrial hemp than to participate in the hemp grow-off, even if you’re just an investor. Investors can hire a master grower to grow for them. There’s literally no better way to break into the hemp industry and receive such a wealth of information and an invaluable hands-on experience than participating in our Great American Hemp Grow Off.
After participating in the grow-off, then you can go back and grow your 50 to 10,000 acres with a much better chance of success and possibly with new joint venture partners since the networking at this event will be off the charts. This is something you want to be very cognizant of because you could meet everyone from master growers to investors to industry experts and more.While there have been Cannabis Cups over the past 5 decades, this is the first time there has been a 5-acre grow-off thus creating the ultimate interactive event for anyone who wants to become an expert in industrial hemp. The battle cry is not to start with 50, 500, or 5,000 acres but to start with just 5 acres and be a part of the most comprehensive hemp growing training event of the century,” Perlowin continued.
THE UPCOMING DOCUSERIES
Hemp, Inc. entered into an agreement with 2 Manifest Studio, LLC, a Wyoming, Limited Liability Company (VED), to create a documentary and subsequent docuseries over the course of an estimated five years. Per the terms of the agreement, VED will create a feature length film and corresponding docuseries and other video materials about the history of hemp with a strong focus on Hemp, Inc. and other pioneers and companies that are leaders in the modern-day history of hemp. 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.
VETERAN VILLAGE KINS COMMUNITIES
The company’s 500-acre strategic growing partner Veteran Village Kins Community in Golden Valley, Arizona, is also 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. Hemp, Inc. executives are also continuing to scout new locations nationwide to open additional hemp processing centers in legal markets.For a more complete description on the Veteran Village Kins Community (as mentioned above), read the following 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 few 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 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.
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 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 ([email protected]).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 built and operated by Digipath Labs out of Las Vegas, 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.”
WHAT IS HEMP, INC.?
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.’S NINE DIVISIONS
Hemp, Inc. has been helping to build the industrial hemp infrastructure that was basically non-existent in America. There are nine divisions:Division One – The Industrial Hemp InfrastructureDivision Two – The Hemp Farming InfrastructureDivision Three – The Hemp Extraction InfrastructureDivision Four – The Hemp Educational InfrastructureDivision Five – The Hemp Marketing InfrastructureDivision Six – Accessories, Products and ServicesDivision Seven – Research and DevelopmentDivision Eight – Industrial Hemp Investments and Joint VenturesDivision Nine – Industrial Hemp ConsultingHemp, Inc. recently established the eighth division (Industrial Hemp Investments and Joint Ventures).
Since the passing of the 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 [email protected].
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 “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 cannabis industry’s public sector. Perlowin, Hemp, Inc.’s chief executive officer also has over five decades in the industry itself.
ABOUT LOCAL PROCESSING CENTER INC.
Hemp, Inc. entered into a majority ownership agreement with JNV Farms LLC for the hemp cultivation and processing company in Medford, Oregon. As the majority owner of the, now fully functional, hemp cultivation and processing company, Local Processing Center, Inc. (LPC), Hemp, Inc. will be able to create a pipeline of industrial hemp and hemp products in states, where legal, on the West Coast. This makes Hemp, Inc. a bi-coastal hemp processing center in America with many more Hemp Local Processing Centers planned for other areas where Hemp is being grown. Thus far, the company has created over 200 jobs in its LPC and also helped create even more jobs for the local farmers. “A to Z” services for the farmers are available – from harvesting to drying, bagging, curing, storing, nitrogen sparging, machine trimming, hand trimming, extracting, testing (with the on-site Digipath Labs) and selling; creating a “one stop shop” for the small to large family farm. Daily updates on LPC can be found on Bruce Perlowin’s personal Facebook page.
