According to Green Hygienics Holdings CEO Ron Loudoun, each of the four professionals joining the team adds considerable value to the company’s growth strategy. “The industrial hemp industry is paced for revolutionary progress, and I am pleased to welcome these gentlemen as we compete in this incredible market,” he said.
A Research and Markets report indicates that the global industrial hemp market is projected to grow from $4.6 billion in 2019 to $26.6 billion by 2025, recording a CAGR of 34 percent. The increase will be mainly driven by factors such as widespread legalization of industrial hemp cultivation and the growing use of hemp seed and hemp seed oil in different food and medical applications.
Green Hygienics is positioned as a leader on the global hemp market as it owns the biggest indoor and outdoor cultivation facility in North America at the moment. The company recently completed the acquisition of the 824-acre Potrero Ranch with approximately 400,000 square foot land that will be used for greenhouse cultivation (http://ibn.fm/TBlHk). In comparison, the average-size hemp farm in North America is around nine acres.
Pros of indoor hemp flowers are that they are more resinous with denser buds and smell and taste better. On the other hand, outdoor hemp is grown under the sun, due to which it has better market value and a higher CBD content. It is also highly sustainable as its carbon footprint is less (http://ibn.fm/HrmVR). Green Hygienics offers the best of both outdoor and indoor. Due to its size, it has a secure and safe product source that no other company can currently offer.
With more than 25 years of experience in agricultural science and innovation, Green Hygienics is establishing itself as a leader in the advancement of science-driven hemp cultivation systems. The company will grow by generating revenues from the sales of premium grade hemp products, developing and licensing valuable IP, making strategic acquisitions, and creating trusted global consumer brands.
