“If Bruce Perowlin is right, hemp could save the world,” according to a new documentary short featuring the Hemp, Inc. CEO. Perlowin was once dubbed the “King of Pot” by CNBC, but he aims to be the “King of Hemp.”
“Could Hemp Save the Planet?” is a new Documercial Group video production that details the various business operations of Hemp, Inc. and its role in driving forward the hemp industrial revolution that is transforming the American landscape.
Perlowin once smuggled in more than 300-thousand pounds of marijuana during his career on the West Coast, and previously spoke with CNBC about how he used local fishermen to bring the drugs right under the Golden Gate Bridge – eventually becoming a marijuana kingpin.
Now, Perlowin is known for his passion to “Make America Hemp Again.”
Hemp, Inc. launched this summer with the largest commercial industrial hemp processing facility in North America, and the mission statement to revitalize the American farm by bringing in a new major cash crop.
“Every hemp plant may make the difference between life and death on this planet,” Perlowin said. In the video, Perlowin explains how hemp fibers are used in oil drilling to keep the precious resource from draining through cracks and fissures.
The video also features the company’s NuAxon Tech CO2 Supercritical Extractor, which extracts the medical grade CBD oil used to treat seizures.
Hemp contains trace amounts of THC, but has been illegal to grow until recently. Now, North Carolina tobacco farms are beginning to grow hemp instead, according to to the video.
David Schmitt, COO of Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC, said hemp market prices are “somewhere in the ballpark of $20,000 per kilo and we have large amounts growing.”
Hemp Inc. planted hundreds of acres of industrial hemp and high CBD hemp in North Carolina, Kentucky, Colorado, Nevada, and Oregon. The CBD oil industry is expected to reach 1 billion by 2020.
The three-minute video is a documercial by Director of Documercial Group Mike “Zappy” Zapolin, who previously directed the award-winning documentary film “The Reality Of Truth.”
“Hemp is going to disrupt a lot of different industries, and we see Hemp, Inc. at the center of that through what the company is accomplishing in North Carolina,” Zapolin said.
A follow up feature film is planned for release in 2018 that will also feature Hemp, Inc. and Perlowin. View the video here.
