The show features in-depth topics of discussion including the 2018 Farm Bill, trade, and new technology. In the interview, Perlowin discusses the rate at which extractors are purchasing high CBD hemp: “I dry and process hemp for our growers in Oregon. They’re making a million dollars off of five acres. It’s not a theory, it’s a fact. Everyone’s gonna grow the high CBD hemp… [and] because of this insatiable craze for CBD… you will sell everything you can grow. I was just in Oregon doing processing, and we have processing in North Carolina, Arizona and Oregon. That’s where my footprint is, and we’re pretty big in each area… You have brokers from all the extraction companies going farm to farm to farm to try to buy as much biomass as they can.”Hemp, Inc. is promoting a “Back to the Land” movement. It is supporting farmers across the nation with ventures including its local processing centers in Medford, Oregon, the largest multipurpose hemp processing and manufacturing center in the western hemisphere located in Spring Hope, North Carolina and a 500-acre hemp growing eco village in Golden Valley, Arizona.

To meet the high demand of CBD market, CEO Bruce Perlowin has also visited various areas of Puerto Rico for the last two months to identify land to support a second Veteran Village Kins Community hemp growing eco-village.Perlowin goes on in the interview to discuss a widespread shortage in biomass as a result of this insatiable demand for CBD: “The last harvest was recent– the end of last year, and right now, the country’s almost completely out of biomass. So already, beginning of February/beginning of March, we’re almost out of biomass and the price has already started going up and up and up…[farmers] don’t need to worry about where they’re gonna sell because there’s a million brokers who will show up. Some companies guarantee 30 thousand an acre if you grow for them.”To see 1 minute videos of Hemp, Inc.’s current activities, go to Bruce Perlowin’s personal Facebook page where he posts daily on all of Hemp, Inc.’s activities around the country.ABOUT HEMP, INC.With a deep-rooted social and environmental mission at its core, Hemp, Inc. seeks to build a business constituency for the American small farmer, the American veteran, and other groups experiencing the ever-increasing disparity between tapering income and soaring expenses.
