Global Industrial Hemp Production Picking up Steam Quickly

PALM BEACH, FloridaFeb. 7, 2019 /CNW/ — The seemingly never ending rise of revenue projections for hemp products goes hand-in-hand with the consumer markets growing acceptance of the products inherent attributes. Research reports find that: “The global industrial hemp market size was estimated at USD 3.9 billion in 2017, expanding at a CAGR of 14.0% over the forecast period. Growing demand for hemp-based food products including cooking oil, dairy alternatives, flour, and salad dressings is expected to drive market growth. In addition, rising demand for bakery products such as bread and cookies is expected to drive the market. The report continues:” The industry is witnessing growth on account of increasing consumer awareness pertaining to benefits associated with hemp products.

Future Farm Technologies Inc. (CSE:FFT) (OTCQB:FFRMF) BREAKING NEWS: As it prepares to begin selling its inventory of Cherry Wine hemp seeds for CBD-producing hemp, Future Farm Technologies is pleased to announce that its Mainesubsidiary, Future Farm Maine, will soon be offering for sale its inventory of Cherry Wine hemp seeds for CBD-producing hemp.

In 2018, Future Farm hand-selected the Cherry Wine seeds to be offered for sale from more than 50,000 hemp plants to allow purchasers of those seeds to maximize the success of their harvests of hemp. The Company expects the sales of those seeds during calendar 2019 to have a significant positive impact on both its revenue and bottom line, as compared to the current fiscal year, because the costs associated with producing those seeds are expected to be significantly less than the revenue that the sale of the seeds will generate. Future Farm is in the process of creating a website to support its seed sales effort, but in the meantime inquiries can be sent to [email protected]




As these efforts advance in Maine, the Company’s lab in Belfast is up and running, collecting data to enable the Company to refine procedures as needed and begin sales of CBD distillate in the near future. In March, Zachary Lapan, Manager of the Company’s Maine cultivation and processing operations, along with George Groccia, Future Farm’s organizational and operational manager, will share their experience working on the Maine farm as speakers at the 2019 New England Cannabis Convention in Boston. Read this full announcement and more news for Future Farm Technologies at: https://www.financialnewsmedia.com/news-fft/
