LAS VEGAS, Sept. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In a recent interview, Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) discussed a wide range of Hemp, Inc.'s business model discussing their current hemp products, future products, industrial hemp as an industry that they are on the forefront of and other significant factors regarding Hemp, Inc. Joined by Bruce Perlowin on the show was best-selling author and hospice volunteer, Dannion Brinkley.
Perlowin and Brinkley discussed, informing listeners, the fact that the United States is the number one importer of hemp but is the only country that doesn't allow its own farmers to grow it. There are 9 states and as of a few days ago, now includes Kentucky, that supports growing industrial hemp and are indeed putting pressure on Congress. Simply put, consumers are driving the legalization of industrial hemp with their demand for hemp-based products. "Politics are driven by economics, so when the economy changes, the political realities change," says Perlowin.
Also during the interview, Perlowin's philanthropic efforts were highlighted. The CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) gives away millions of his own personal stock to non-profits such as Patch Adams and the Twilight Brigade. "I'm setting the bar. Raising it. And giving back," said Perlowin. "What Bruce is doing, is what I call 'Spiritualistic Capitalism'. He's giving people a reason to make a difference," noted Brinkley.
Brinkley, a hemp activist supporting the legalization of industrial hemp, believes growing industrial hemp should be the number one driving force of the American people. "One acre of hemp can produce as much paper as 4 to 10 acres of trees over a 20-year cycle, but hemp stalks only take four months to mature, whereas trees take 20 to 80 years. This information was known in 1916, according to a USDA report. Hemp paper can also be recycled more often, though this fact is not of much value, since hemp is a reusable resource," said Brinkley. From that single perspective alone, the reduction cost and increase of oxygen on the planet should drive people to pressure Congress to change its laws on hemp, according to Brinkley.
Dannion Brinkley will be a featured speaker at the upcoming Rhythm and Joy Festival, October 4-6, 2013, at Hummingbird Nest Ranch in Simi Valley, California, where he will be talking about his new book, "Ten Things to Know Before You Go". Aspire to inspire before expire. The Rhythm and Joy Festival (RAJ), organized by Agape Spiritual Center, is a vision to expand the impact of Music and the Arts as a catalyst for transforming lives. The goal is to leave each and every person inspired, informed and encouraged in order to put forth their best in life. Powered by Los Angeles' finest musicians, singers and artists such as Chaka Khan and Common, RAJ will embrace art, movement, meditation, wisdom and wellness and healing. RAJ's Creative Director, Rickie Byars Beckwith, of Agape, designed the event to be more than an alternative music festival. It explores ways to live smarter, love deeper and take care of one another while honoring the Earth.
During the interview, Perlowin also enlightened listeners on how to get "back to nature" through Kins Domains (www.KinsDomain.us) where a lot of Hemp, Inc.'s hemp products are manufactured. These intentional communities, also discussed during Perlowin's last interview, are made up of individually owned Kins Domains, are located in Dolan Springs, Arizona and are 2 ½ acres each with a living fence, organic garden and pond… amongst other sustainable properties. Perlowin is currently enlisting interns, or "settlers" to go and live on the land. Through this experience, they'll learn homesteading and living sustainably.
The hemp industry is more than just an industry… "It's a movement," says CEO Bruce Perlowin. "Our Eco-Harmony Coop (www.EcoHarmonyCoop.com) is a place where artisans and formulators have a platform to buy and sell their hemp and other sustainable and renewable wares. It's yet another way to bring products to the market." The coop also sells a stem cell blend with proven clinical studies being finalized.
