Hemp, Inc. Gains More Momentum as Industrial Hemp Prohibition Continues to Weaken in the United States

LAS VEGAS, Feb. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Another victory for the industrial hemp industry as Kentucky's state senate passed Senate Bill 50 on Monday to allow industrial hemp into Kentucky's economy, paving the way for the creation of a legal hemp industry in the state. However, on the federal level, hemp is still currently banned under DEA regulations, so the Kentucky Senate bill is contingent on the federal government removing the hemp crop from a list of illegal drugs. (Hemp is currently listed alongside its more potent cousin, marijuana, as a Schedule I controlled substance.) Everyone is still optimistic though.


The 31-to-6 vote was followed by a testimony from Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who claimed to be wearing a hemp shirt, grudgingly bought in Canada and not in the U.S. Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP), one of Fabulous Four industrial hemp and medical marijuana public companies, is ecstatic there's another victory for the industry, as it has been well-positioned in the industry for the last couple of years and continues to be full steam ahead as its CEO, Bruce Perlowin, continues to amass market share with the company's industrial hemp products, of which one being their clothing division.         

Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) is poised to be the leader in the industry. As one of the largest publicly-traded companies of hemp stocks in the US, by market capitalization, Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) has been dousing the industrial hemp market with hemp-based products proven to increase the body's overall health and performance. The company boasts HerbaGenix™ nutraceuticals (; BasicHemp (, their hemp protein shakes brand; and, custom-branded MJ Lover for Him and MJ Lover for Her ( and Re-Load Hemp nutraceuticals ( which is derived from a blend of organic nutrients, herbs, and vitamins including hemp extract (0.00% THC) and AFA blue-green algae which is known for its healthful effects. The website has positioned itself to be the 'Amazon' of hemp products and is now inviting hemp manufacturers to utilize the platform as their channel of distribution for products. Hemp, Inc.'s book division will also be producing e-books for Kindle and other electronic formats, making it, possibly, the next 'Amazon'.

More hemp wellness and other products include hemp gemstone candles ( made on the Kins Domain; the Eco-Harmony/Help Loyalty Card ( which rivals some of the top rewards cards today; Hemp, Inc.'s flagship website and aged URL ( which is the portal for all industrial hemp products and what is quickly becoming the "Amazon" of the industrial hemp industry; hemp and natural fibre clothing ( coming Spring 2013; education and media (; and Hemp, Inc.'s Hemp Ambassador program, which Perlowin discussed during's radio interview. Moreover, since is at the top of the search engines, it's appealing to all hemp manufacturing companies.

As Paul Zane Pilzer, world renowned economist and trend predictor, said, the next trillion dollar industry is represented by two emerging industries: wellness and network marketing, both of which Perlowin has successfully positioned his company in.  According to Pilzer, "the early pioneers of both wellness and network marketing were motivated by the sense that it was possible to create a better life than the conventional routes offered—better personal health and better economic health, respectively. Now the "alternatives" of yesterday have become the economic powerhouses of today and tomorrow."

Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP), apparently has it all covered. "We are in the midst of another industry spike. Within the past 3 weeks alone, there has been close to 4 billion shares traded amongst the industrial hemp and medical marijuana industry, roughly translating into almost $200 million dollars. This clearly indicates to the investment community that this industry is here to stay and that they want in at the beginning of the next growth curve that any victory in any of the states will bring us."

Perlowin donates to Dr. Patch Adams' of Gesundheit! Institute who is building a 50 million dollar, free children's hospital in West Virginia. The institute is a not-for-profit health care organization and is a project in holistic medical care based on the belief that one cannot separate the health of the individual from the health of the family, the community, the world, and the health care system itself (see Other efforts Perlowin donates prolifically to include the Cash Hyde Foundation Fundraiser with Tommy Chong (; The CanDo Kids Project (; C Bar J Horsehaven Rescue, in Dolan Springs, Arizona (; Spread Peace USA - Feeding the Homeless (; Keepers of the Wild, to build an 1,800 acre animal sanctuary on 4,000 acres in Dolan Springs, Arizona (; and, the Seva Foundation to be fully human, we must translate our compassion and concern into useful service (


Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) focuses on the vast market created by the quickly emerging, and growing, multibillion dollar industrial hemp industry. Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) is not involved in the cultivation or marketing of medical marijuana. It is the company's belief that legalization of hemp in all 50 states and at the federal level will come to pass. With that in mind, the company is building infrastructure with the potential to gain substantial market share before and after industrial hemp prohibition ends. (Pending any federal licensing or other requirements, that may be enacted after hemp prohibition ends).


Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) seeks to benefit many constituencies, not exploit or endanger any group of them. Thus, the publicly-traded company believes in "upstreaming" of a portion of profit from the marketing of their finished hemp goods back to its originator, in which most cases will one day be the American farmer, cultivating natural, sustainable products. By Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) focusing on comprehensive investment results—that is, with respect to performance along the interrelated dimensions of people, planet, and profits— our triple bottom line approach can be an important tool to support sustainability goals.

CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP), Bruce Perlowin, is positioning the company as a leader in the industrial hemp industry, with a social and environmental mission at its core. In fact, he wanted to, consciously, found a business with non-financial goals that weren't an after-thought, but are part of its DNA.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
The buzz continues for cloud, data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) and their collective impact across all industries. But a new conversation is emerging - how do companies use industry disruption and technology enablers to lead in markets undergoing change, uncertainty and ambiguity? Organizations of all sizes need to evolve and transform, often under massive pressure, as industry lines blur and merge and traditional business models are assaulted and turned upside down.

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT.
You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
