The spiral has been persistent for shares of Hemp Inc (OTCMKTS:HEMP), which only spiked briefly during the runup to the signing of the 2018 US Farm Bill, despite quite an on-the-nose idea of a catalyst for this stock given its strong new allowances for the hemp market. To put more meat on the bone, the company just announced that it has agreed upon a stock share with Gunpowder Capital Corporation, a Canadian merchant bank and advisory services firm.
According to the release, “The stock share will be Gunpowder Capital Group’s first foray into the hemp industry. Seeing the high demand for hemp throughout the United States, both companies agree that with the opening of enormous opportunities in the hemp industry through the 2018 U.S. Farm Bill, the market is going to experience great growth through the coming months and years.”
Hemp Inc (OTCMKTS:HEMP) was founded in 2008. The company has a reputation as one of the more controversial enterprises, even by the standards of either the OTC or the cannabis patch, which certainly paints a picture.
In any case, the company is making strong strides toward reshaping its image as a legitimate emerging leadership play in the industrial hemp space.
Hemp Inc understands its mission to be a provider of “green solutions that help make the world a better place to live. We support products that are eco-friendly, organic, healthy and solutions that replace many petroleum-based products.”
“Hemp Inc.’s wholly owned subsidiary Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC purchased the largest decortication plant in North America, which is located in Spring Hope, North Carolina. The plant is housed in a 70,000,000 square foot warehouse on 9 acres. The company will start producing fiber, loss circulation materials (LCM) and absorbents from kenaf and later from hemp.”
That narrative continues forward to include the concept that “Hemp, Inc. will produce a product for drilling rigs called “lost circulation material” (LCM), which is used for maintaining the seals when drilling for water, oil, gas, and any other liquid or gas. This product alone is capable of producing millions of dollars in revenue since some of the largest oil companies in the world will be our primary customers.”
“Eventually, the company will produce fiber materials for the paper and fabric industries, and other industries that utilize materials from hemp to make products such as plastics, building materials, health, and beauty related products and more.” In other words, the concept of “diversified applications for hemp as an industrial material” is the paramount idea.
