The quest for cannabis plants that consistently and reliably produce less than 0.3 percent THC continues, although hemp tends to be overlooked by many in the cannabis and legal marijuana community, the market is significantly gaining momentum as more hemp-based products burst onto the scene with regulations becoming increasingly more friendly for hemp industry leaders. Hemp and Cannabis Company market activity and news coverage today includes: Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP), mCig, Inc. (OTC: MCIG), Marijuana Company of America, Inc. (OTC: MCOA), Medical Marijuana Inc. (OTC: MJNA) and 22nd Century Group, Inc. (NYSE: XXII)
Hemp, Inc.

The 550 acres of hemp and kenaf belong to both Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC.

We want them to know how the company is performing and what it is doing to reach its goals. For example, this past weekend we held the 4th educational symposium through the Hemp University.

"We had to stop selling tickets, just like in the first three events, because we were over capacity. We originally planned for only 100 attendees but there were over 140 people in attendance. We're expecting an even larger crowd at the next Hemp University educational symposium, scheduled for December 2, 2017, of 300 to 420 attendees. Of course, we plan to hold it at a much larger venue. We strongly encourage you to buy your tickets early. We will definitely sell out and this isn't marketing hype," says Perlowin.Read this entire release at http://www.marketnewsupdates.com/news/hemp.html
