Hemp, Inc. (OTC Pink: HEMP) announced this week that it has purchased a whole line of automated Temafa decortication equipment designed to separate the fiber from the core of the hemp plant through a process known as decortication. The Temafa decortication line of equipment, the only one of its kind in the United States, purchased by Hemp, Inc. will now enable the company to process raw hemp for American farmers into two valuable base products (fiber and hurd) that can both yield hundreds of products. The equipment is currently located at a plant in North Carolina. Hemp, Inc. is set to move the equipment to a more suitable location such as Kentucky, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, or the Georgia area. "This purchase of decortication equipment was a critical step in order for Hemp, Inc. to help Americans transition from non-sustainable synthetic solutions to a hemp-based green solution. We are very excited at what we'll be able to achieve once our manufacturing facility ramps its hemp production volume up over the next few years," said Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. (HEMP).

Tranzbyte Corporation (OTC Pink: ERBB) recently announced that the ZaZZZ, Mach 1, will begin leaving the factory next week for delivery, set up, and use in concert with a coordinated media event at all four dispensary locations. The machines may be in place and in use in advance of the 12th, but a "safety-net" of a few days has been built in for general planning of the webcast so all shareholders can be included in the event. Two days prior to the event, management will offer a conference call to answer as many general questions as possible and include a limited question-and-answer period. The company plans to address a wide range of topics relating to its many divisions and their products in a conference call scheduled for 1PM Eastern on June 10th. "We have irons in many fires, and sometimes one aspect or another of our business gets obscured," says company president David Gwyther. "We realize that until our efforts are visible on a day to day basis, the onus is on us to keep the public informed. Conference calls such as these will provide the time and platform to communicate more of our vision and progress to more people than can a press release or sound bite from media interviews."
