Hemp, Inc. Announces Significant Progress in Hemp Seed Meal Approval for Laying Hen Diets

LAS VEGAS, NV, March 27, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire — In a recent development for the agricultural and hemp industries, Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) is thrilled to announce that hemp seed meal is on the cusp of receiving approval for use in animal feed, starting with laying hen diets. This significant advancement follows a tentative approval of a definition for hemp seed meal by a committee of the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) earlier this year, marking a pivotal step towards legal distribution as an approved feed ingredient in the United States.

Hemp, Inc. and its partners view this development as not just a victory for the hemp industry, but as a testament to the sustainable and innovative solutions that hemp products can offer to the agricultural sector at large.

According to AAFCO’s Executive Director, Austin Therrell, the hemp seed meal would require the nod from both the AAFCO board of directors and the general membership before it can be officially distributed. The final decision is anticipated at AAFCO’s annual meeting in August, in San Antonio.

Hemp seed meal is recognized for its rich content of vitamins, minerals, oils, and proteins, offering substantial benefits to laying hens. It promises to serve a comparable role to soy or canola meal in layer diets, with the added advantage of enhancing the quality and amino acid profile of the eggs produced.

Notably, hemp seeds are devoid of THC and CBD, components that have raised concerns in other hemp products due to potential contamination risks. The Hemp Feed Coalition has ensured that any presence of these substances in hemp seed will be classified as contaminants, aligning with regulatory standards.

Upon approval of this initial application, the Hemp Feed Coalition plans to extend its efforts to secure approvals for the use of hemp seed in diets for additional animal species, starting with ruminants and eventually expanding to broilers. The Coalition anticipates a smoother and faster approval process for these subsequent applications, buoyed by the precedent set for laying hens.

Hemp, Inc. has been one of the key players in this burgeoning industry, driving the market forward with its quality products and strategic market approaches. Coupled with an invaluable roster of connections with hemp manufacturers and vendors across the country and abroad, the Company expects to see meteoric growth curves on a domestic and international scale as the industry continues to grow.

Through its e-portal (www.hempinc.com), the Company’s hemp-derived products are poised to capture a large share of the marketplace on a global scale and to play a vital role in maintaining good health and well-being… 2 significant growth factors of the CBD market. The Company’s product line contains CBD, CBDA, CBG, CBGA, and CBN (non-psychoactive compounds found in cannabis plants). These are active ingredients in cannabis that are derived from the hemp plant, which is widely known for pain relief, relaxation, and anxiety relief. A recipe is only as good as its ingredients and how those ingredients are blended.

Hemp, Inc. is the only company in America that uses pharmaceutical-grade beta-cyclodextrin (a carbohydrate used during the manufacturing process). Carbohydrates bond with oils including all the cannabinoids for massive and rapid absorption and uptake.  The Company’s CBD, CBDA, CBG, CBGA, and CBN product lines are highly potent therapeutic doses that have received rave reviews. 

Hemp, Inc. has also pushed the boundaries with its CBD/CBG coffee enhancer. This powerhouse product is super potent, absorbs rapidly in coffee, and is 4 times more potent (at a fraction of the price) than other hemp-derived coffee enhancers currently on the market. Its high-quality ingredient combination offers 30 servings per bottle and contains a total of 10,000mg of cannabinoids (7,500mg CBD and 2,500mg CBG) in an MCT oil base. Per serving, that’s 250mg CBD and 83mg CBG remarkably mixed in a wonderfully rich cup of coffee.  

The CBD/CBG coffee enhancer comes in plain (natural) and vanilla flavors.  The plain (natural) coffee enhancer is available now and the vanilla flavor will be available by the end of this month.  A single container (7-day supply) retails for $27.95 and a bottle (30-day supply) retails for $99.95.  Wholesale bulk orders are single-use packages, available through select restaurants. Currently, Hemp, Inc. has decided to expand its product line and has updated its website. The Company will announce its new products as they are launched throughout the year.
