CMW Client Hemp, Inc. received a feature piece in High Times:

About five years ago, Schmitt met Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp Inc. One evening while talking about business, Perlowin asked Schmitt if hemp would be suitable for the production of LCMs. The core of hemp stems, or hurds as they are known, are nearly as absorbent as kenaf.

“I don’t know, I’ve only made LCMs with kenaf…but I daggum sure will find out,” recalled Schmitt, with true Southern charm. To test the idea, Schmitt ordered a bale of hemp stalks from Europe.
