LAS VEGAS, Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Recent activity in the markets has pushed the industrial hemp and medical marijuana sectors to new heights, setting a record volume for Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP). Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP), apparently has it all covered. "We are in the midst of another industry spike although with this much volume across the board we are now entering a sustained growth curve for this sector of public companies. Within the past 3 weeks alone, there has been close to 3 billion shares traded amongst the industrial hemp and medical marijuana industry, roughly translating into almost $200 million. (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20121107/LA08133LOGO) 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. Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP), the industry leader that led the last growth curve back in 2009 with a 480% increase, is, again, leading the industry in 2013 as its CEO, Bruce Perlowin, predicted. According to Perlowin, the pioneer of the industry, the last spike was only a precursor to what is happening now in an industry that is officially "unstoppable." This new wave of activity has prompted Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) to step up its focus on one of its newly most profitable divisions " The Industrial Hemp and Medical Marijuana Consulting Company, Inc." Perlowin stated, "I know where all the gold is hidden in this industry, every nuance of business niche, what will work and won't work, what has been tried before and what new ideas and concepts for the industry will fly or fail. When I'm not sure of something, or it's in one of the many areas outside my particular expertise then I know who to go to, who is an expert in this area and who more likely than not will immediately know all the answers or where to find them quickly. Our consulting division is extremely diverse and broad." " 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 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. As the only CEO of two publicly traded companies in this sector, Perlowin, along with David Tobias (Hemp, Inc.'s President and the only executive officer of two publicly traded companies in this sector) have an unrivaled wealth of knowledge and experience. This culmination of knowledge and experience has even attracted the attention of banks, which want in on the billions of dollars flowing through the public company sector of this industry. As one of the largest publicly-traded companies of hemp stocks in the United States, by market capitalization, Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) has poised itself as the leader in the industry. The company (Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP)) has been dousing the industrial hemp market with hemp-based products, expanding its divisions and working to complete the spin-off of non-core related subsidiaries. Strategist and CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) Bruce Perlowin has also laid out the most powerful and profitable purchasing mechanism in the history of marketing which he calls the " Quantum Economic Purchasing Matrix." This is the next phase of moving from a developmental stage company to an operating company which means a full scale launch under their sales and marketing program. Full implementation of this humanity-serving model is now set for sometime next week, earlier than we expected. (Listen to recorded conference call here.) This humanity-serving model is no easy feat even for a man who knows every nuance of the industry and who pioneered solutions for the industry such as a tax remittance card. With this card, Hemp, Inc. is able to track all taxes collected, on a daily basis, and remit the proper amount of tax to the proper authorities based upon their requirements. This can be a windfall for state and local governments. Along with the tax remittance card, Hemp, Inc. offers other comprehensive solutions to the industry that covers inventory control which tracks products from seed to sale; educational expos; and seminars to educate entrepreneurs on the shifting laws and realities of the medical marijuana and industrial hemp industry.
