LAS VEGAS, Feb. 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hemp, Inc. (OTC:HEMP), through its subsidiary, The Industrial Hemp and Medical Marijuana Consulting Company, Inc. (IHMMCC) and joint venture partner, Resource Ventures, Inc. ( REVI ), announced today that on 'Hemp' Independence Day (July 4, 2014), they will launch the inaugural issue of "The Hemp Nation Magazine", a new print and online publication that will convene the most knowledgeable advocates and writers around the ideas that are now driving a new clean and green "American Industrial Hemp Revolution".
"The Hemp Nation Magazine" is one of Hemp, Inc.'s most ambitious collaboration in months. According to Hemp, Inc. CEO, Bruce Perlowin, the magazine will publish the most hard-hitting, pertinent news coverage, state-by-state, as it relates to the industrial hemp industry. The magazine will also feature top manufacturing companies, the public and private sector of the industrial hemp industry and a plethora of hemp-based, hemp related products.
According to both parties, our new "The Hemp Nation Magazine" is expected to create significant revenue from advertising, subscriptions and sales to thousands of medical marijuana dispensaries, book stores, smoke shops, vapor shops and other traditional magazine channels of distribution. Starting circulation of "The Hemp Nation Magazine" is set at 100,000 hard copies with distribution online and will include subscription-based mailing, to subscribers. Original magazine content will be featured daily on a new, fully responsive online magazine launching Friday, July 4, 2014. The print edition of "The Hemp Nation Magazine" will be published quarterly.
"The Hemp Nation Magazine" is expected to be printed primarily on hemp paper. The first run is planned to be a 100,000 numbered limited collector's edition. It was also mentioned that REVI will launch the printing of hemp business cards ... something that until now has been extremely hard to obtain in a timely fashion. "I've been in the public sector of this industry for over 5 years and REVI will be the only company that will be able to produce hemp business cards at reasonable cost in a timely manner. It took our company, Hemp, Inc. (OTC:HEMP) 6 months to get our last order of hemp business cards and at an obscenely high price. Now, every company desiring hemp business cards will now be able to get them," said Perlowin.
"In recognition of the 2014 Farm Bill signed off by President Obama, our goal with this new publication is to drive a vibrant, insightful conversation enriched by the best writers and thinkers, authors and experts in every sector of the Industrial Hemp Industry. This industry is on the cusp of becoming a multi-billion dollar industry and we are realizing this as the laws regarding industrial hemp show favor to the industry," added Perlowin.
A preview of the website under construction can be viewed at, www.hempnationmagazine.com and advertisers for both the website and print edition magazine should contact Hemp, Inc. at email@example.com.
