LAS VEGAS, June 16, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hemp, Inc.’s (OTC:HEMP) decortication line was featured in the June issue of Freedom Leaf magazine, the multi-media industry magazine geared towards the legalization of marijuana. The publication empowers a network of activists around the world while covering the “latest news, art, fashion, lifestyle, and entertainment in the cannabis industry.” With an impressive 300,000 magazines in circulation in 32 states by 160 activists and traditional distribution networks, this month’s Freedom Leaf June issue not only encapsulates “good news” in marijuana reform, but also pays homage to George Shlichten’s 1917 hemp decorticator that “fell into oblivion” without a trace in its featured article, “The Return of the Hemp Decorticator”.
Now almost 100 years later, Hemp, Inc. expects its Hemp Decorticator to revolutionize the manufacturing of raw hemp in the United States of America and “help Americans transition from non-sustainable synthetic solutions to more hemp-based clean, green solutions,” says Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC:HEMP). The company purchased the only large-scale commercial decorticator in the U.S. that was once owned by a tobacco firm in North Carolina. The fifteen million dollar decorticator was originally built to process kenaf but after a short bout of producing premium horse bedding, the tobacco firm “walked off” and left the massive machinery, according to Perlowin.
“There are only five decorticators of this magnitude in the world and we have one of them,” says Perlowin and according to the article, “thanks to Hemp, Inc., the decorticator is about to make its rightful return to the American hemp landscape.” To document the reassembling of its hemp decorticator, Hemp, Inc. has installed video cameras throughout its facility in Spring Hope, North Carolina with streaming, real-time video.
Perlowin also reached an internet radio audience of hundreds of listeners last week when he was featured as one of the guest speakers on, “Up Close with Chris Tinney” which aired on VoiceAmerica on June 9, 2015. In that interview, Perlowin discussed how Hemp, Inc. plans to use its decortication line to help heal the planet through the hemp and educate the public on the benefits of hemp.
