Hemp, Inc. Reports: Alaska’s Hemp Pilot Program Set for Expansion

Las Vegas, NV – (NewMediaWire) – February 9, 2022 – Hemp,
Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP), one of the global leaders on the forefront of the
industrial hemp industry, reports today that Alaska’s “baby” hemp pilot program
hits full throttle thanks to the federal government’s official green light
(stamp of approval).  The state has been operating its industrial hemp
pilot program, procedurally, under federal law since April, 2019. With the
recent stamp of approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Alaska can
now expand and claim its stake in the multi-billion-dollar industry. The
significance of this particular state in such a competitive industry?

Alaska is one of only a handful
of states that “inspects products for quality and purity,” one news source noted. This is one of the first things consumers,
who ingest hemp-based products, take into account. Now, entrepreneurs from
Alaska, who make hemp products such as CBD oils, are now able to market
nationwide.  Alaskan farmers will be “able to diversify by growing a
different crop that can be made into products that are increasingly in demand
here and worldwide.”

The approval from the U.S.
Department of Agriculture went into effect on January 1, 2022. Alaska’s Industry
Hemp Program (IHP) continues to remain compliant as required by the 2018 Farm
Bill. Alaska’s Division of Agriculture is now updating its industrial hemp
regulations for “alignment as a permanent program.”  According to
the press release issued by Alaska Commissioner Corri A. Feige, “the
goal is diversification of Alaska’s economy with the addition of a new crop for
its farmers. Industrial hemp is one crop where Alaska is not years behind the
Lower 48 in development.” Alaska Gov. Dunleavy additionally expressed hope that
“industrial hemp will become a viable cash crop for growers in Alaska.”

Already positioned as a “go-to”
consultant in the industry, Hemp, Inc. can be great resource to Alaska farmers
and manufacturers as they expand. With the industrial hemp market growing
exponentially, resources and contacts are invaluable. The industrial hemp
market is expected to reach 12.01 billion by 2028 and is expected to expand at
a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.2% from 2021 to 2028, per the most
recent study by Grand View Research, Inc.
