NEW YORK, Jan. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via OTC PR WIRE – HempAmericana, Inc. (OTC: HMPQ) (“HempAmericana” or the “Company”) is excited to announce that the Company has signed a Letter of Intent (“LOI”) for the purchase of the entire crop of hemp flower from a key East Coast supplier. Such hemp involved in a subsequent purchase agreement will go toward supplying the Company’s CBD extraction and production activities at its primary facility in Augusta, Maine.
As the Company has noted in its recent press releases, production activity is set to ramp up to full-scale levels, and acquiring sufficient hemp supplies is a clear priority for management.
CEO, Salvador Rosillo stated, “My team and I will be traveling down to the site next week to meet with the team from the key supplier along with more than 40 other farmers in the region. We believe this will be the beginning of a beautiful relationship as we look to establish a pipeline of hemp flower heading up the coast to join with our local suppliers here in Maine, in addition to our plans for immediate expansion beyond Maine.”
The deal with this key supplier is believed to be the first in a series of supplier relationships, with this particular region targeted by the Company as a strong base of initial access to raw input hemp flower for processing into 99% pure CBD at the Company’s state-of-the-art production facility.
In December, the US saw the removal of hemp from federal prohibition under the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 (CSA). Company management believes this will have two powerful impacts relevant to the value for shareholders of HempAmericana’s current operational strategy: 1) It will increase the overall market size in terms of end market consumers of CBD products through increased public awareness and reduced cultural stigma attached to cannabis-related products; and 2) it will likely increase the total supply of hemp in the marketplace, thus reducing input costs for CBD production.
Mr. Rosillo continued, “We are going to need thousands of pounds of hemp flower per week to drive our high-capacity operations now that we are on the brink of major full-scale production in Maine, and possibly on the brink of launching our next manufacturing facility on the east coast as well.”
The Company expects this agreement to be formalized within the next two weeks. More information about this key supplier will be released once the agreement has been formalized.
