LAS VEGAS, March 20, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hemp, Inc.'s (OTC:HEMP) wholly owned subsidiary, The Industrial Hemp and Medical Marijuana Consulting Company, Inc. (IHMMCC), is pleased to announce that it has signed a consultant agreement with Global Links Corp. (OTC:GLCO), a holding company committed to exploring business opportunities in emerging industries, currently, the industrial hemp and medical marijuana industries. Per the Agreement, IHMMCC and Global Links Corp. will collaborate on launching a wide range of hemp and hemp-related products through GLCO's subsidiary, Hemp Life Today.
As part of the revenue sharing agreement, Global Links Corp. (GLCO) will receive industry-specific consulting services in the area of sales and marketing strategy, press releases, public company venues and general business guidance, while IHMMCC will gain access to GLCO's web portal, Hemp Life Today, and other marketing opportunities.
"GLCO's Hemp Life Today is one of the fastest growing online sources for the industrial hemp industry. This collaboration will enable GLCO to effectively bring to market the best hemp and medical marijuana products, along with news and awareness," said Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC:HEMP). "Our vast resource of companies, that produce hemp products, can enhance the Hemp Life Today portal and our industry contacts are second-to-none. We look forward to making the Hemp Life Today one of the largest hemp portals on the planet, and creating significant revenues for Global Links Corp. while doing it."
According to Perlowin, Hemp, Inc.'s subsidiary, The Industrial Hemp and Medical Marijuana Consulting Company, Inc. (IHMMCC), is well-entrenched and connected in the industrial hemp sector. As the country transitions to embrace more sustainable agriculture practices, public companies want to expand into the industrial hemp industry and IHMMCC is leading the way. Hemp, Inc. executives say their subsidiary continues to be inundated with potential consulting agreements from companies seeking to capitalize in this multi-billion dollar industry that is spurring ecological and economic benefits.
IHMMCC's "Community of Companies" all work together to pool their resources, marketing connections and strategies in order to help all the companies grow simultaneously. Thus far, the public companies included within Hemp, Inc.'s "Community of Companies" include, but are not limited to, VaporBrands International, Inc., Resource Ventures, Inc., Dewmar International BMC, Inc., WebXU, Inc. and Green Concepts, Inc.
"The incessant time and effort it would take to source a wide variety of hemp products for our hemp portal, Hemp Life Today, would be astronomical. IHMMCC's vast network of industry companies, or 'Community of Companies', is what originally attracted us to them," said Global Links' CEO, Frank Dobrucki. "Hemp, Inc. currently provides consulting services to seven companies in the hemp industry and is in negotiations with over twenty more, which the Company believes will bring significant exposure to Hemp Life Today's product and informational website."
Hemp, Inc. also, recently, worked with another one of GLCO's subsidiaries, the BXI Trade Exchange, as a co-sponsor of the Exchange Auction Board which took place this week in Las Vegas. While future plans with GLCO's subsidiary have not been revealed to date, both parties are interested in pursuing the enormous asset enhancement and marketing avenue for company growth. Traditionally, these business needs would be purchased with huge amounts of capital. However, via barter, large amounts of capital are not needed.
According to Dobrucki, the mutually beneficial partnership with IHMMCC will not only increase revenues for Hemp Life Today and Hemp, Inc. (OTC:HEMP), it will also advance the products, services and information of several companies in the industrial hemp and medical marijuana industries.
In a recent Hemp, Inc. release, Perlowin was quoted saying, "The medical marijuana, recreational marijuana, and industrial hemp industries are emerging out of the shadows of illegality and the quote 'black market' and into the limelight of a legitimate and legal industry, reminiscent of America's first prohibition and post prohibition economic opportunities."
"The Industrial Hemp and Medical Marijuana Consulting Company, Inc." pulls industry information from a vast network of specialists that consists of other public industry, public and private companies, public companies' CEOs and networks of experts, bankers, investors, lawyers, other consultants, industry analysts, and non-profits connected to this industry as well as the traditional industry experts in all areas of the various business opportunities the industry presents. The unrivaled wealth of knowledge and experience is attracting companies looking to diversify and expand into the industrial hemp and medical cannabis arena.
