NEW YORK, NY, July 18, 2019 — – HempAmericana, Inc. (OTC: HMPQ) (“HempAmericana” or the “Company”), an emerging participant in the CBD products market, is excited to update shareholders on current inventory levels on hand for premium-quality CBD products. As of July 15, 2019, the Company holds CBD-based product inventories in excess of $500,000 based on current market pricing for end-market sales of comparable products. This inventory represents production over the past 60 days and includes CBD Extract, Crude CBD Oil, CBD Distillate, and bottled CBD Tincture.
Management believes it will improve margins over time as production smooths out and the volume absorbs fixed operating costs.
“This initial production push will have a direct and tangible impact in terms of return on our investment in materials, plant and equipment” stated Salvador Rosillo, HempAmericana CEO. “We also look forward to significant revenue growth as we start delivery to wholesale and other customers. Overall, we are plotting a course toward strong margins on steadily rising production levels.”
The Company continues to pursue an active place in the CBD white label market segment, especially for those companies seeking premium full-spectrum distillate CBD oil. According to industry research, as of Q1 2019, there were in excess of 400 CBD brands in the US market. Many are customer-facing operations with no internal means of production, suggesting a growing demand for high-capacity producers such as HempAmericana.
On this point, new research released in June by the Brightfield Group highlights strong and accelerating growth in the domestic CBD market. Specifically, sales of products containing CBD are expected exceed $5 billion in 2019, which represents a 700% year/year increase relative to 2018 levels. The report also notes that much of the new growth will be driven by product sales through mainstream retail chain stores, which is a significant indicator of wider and more mainstream consumer adoption of CBD products.
“Right now, it’s all-systems-go,” continued Mr. Rosillo. “We anticipate rising margins on a gross basis, accelerating production levels, increasing inventory levels and customer orders.”
