The industrial hemp industry is based on cannabis sativa, non-psychotropic (low-THC) cousin of the marijuana plant. From Europe — where the industry is well established and experiencing double-digit growth — to major international markets now in the process of opening (North America, South America, China, India), a wide range of sectors based on industrial hemp are growing rapidly. The current global market situation indicates a timely opportunity over the next 12 months to align leading companies in growth markets into a profitable enterprise with global reach.
Industrial hemp has literally hundreds of applications across medical, health & beauty, food, paper, textile, bio-plastics and the construction markets. It has also shown promise in certain nano-tech applications. Viable hemp sectors offer a wide range not only of product lines but of geographic markets, price points, demand levels — and risk/reward.
