HempAmericana Announces Strong Presence at Cannabis Festival, Coverage by ELOCURE CBD Publication

NEW YORK, Jan. 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via OTC PR WIRE – HempAmericana, Inc. (HMPQ), (“HempAmericana” or the “Company”) is proud to update shareholders on an exciting weekend in which the Company made strong progress toward the launch of its new CBD product line at the 4th Annual High Times New York City Cannabis Film Festival (the “Festival”) and was featured in an “ELOCURE Cannabinoid Oil For Better Health” Publication that cited the Company’s strong strides as an emerging player in the CBD marketplace.

The event was a tremendous success and management wishes to express its gratitude to High Times as well as to the many HempAmericana shareholders who attended the Festival and shared in the experience. Representatives from the Company had the chance to meet and be interviewed by a number of high-profile Cannabis publications as well as many mainstream publications.

CEO Salvador Rosillo stated, “We expect a lot of strong coverage on the Company to come from our participation in this event. Now that we are heading into full production, the word is spreading and we received quite a bit of attention from both cannabis-specific and more general publications as well as from a range of suppliers, distributors, and potential end-market consumers at the Festival. We also want to thank Citiva, Come Back Daily, High Beautiful, VICE, Puff Men Distributors, Honey Suckle, Robot NYC, High NY and High Times Magazine for this amazing event.”

In addition, the Company was featured in an article on the “ELOCURE Cannabinoid Oil For Better Health” website. The article, titled “More Big Steps from HempAmericana Inc (HMPQ)”, can be well-characterized by a quote from its initial paragraph: “One stock that has been sharply capitalizing on the fervor stemming from the 2018 Farm Bill signed by Congress and the President in December is HempAmericana Inc (HMPQ). We have seen about 110% in gains since November, and the strength was reinforced last week when the company announced that it has signed a Letter of Intent for the purchase of the entire crop of hemp flower from a key East Coast supplier.”

Mr. Rosillo continued, “Joining the team from High Times at the Festival in New York City was well worth our time, as we knew it would be. I can’t imagine a better way to kick off our major marketing activities or a better partner to have on our side. We are also grateful to see our progress being recognized by ELOCURE and other core CBD hubs around the digital marketplace as we get set for an aggressive move toward booking sales. We only expect the buzz to pick up from here!”
