- While more research is needed, a recent study provides some evidence that using CBD to transition from tobacco addiction holds significant promise
- Supply chain issues are the main barrier to entry to the CBD cigarette industry for big tobacco
- GRYN already owns the largest single industrial hemp for CBD farm in North America
Big tobacco companies are already making strategic moves into the fast-growing hemp industry, as they are exploring hemp-based alternatives to tobacco. To make this move, they require a very large supply of quality industrial hemp from which they can derive the targeted CBD products, more specifically quality hemp biomass and flower to make CBD cigarettes.
There is an emerging trend to replace smoking tobacco with smoking hemp flower. The goal is to ease the conversion from tobacco, with its addictive and negative health effects, to CBD cigarettes as a transition cigarette. While there is yet limited research providing enough evidence that CBD can sufficiently ease tobacco addiction, the results of one recent study provide anecdotal evidence that CBD may positively affect addiction. The study included 700 participants who were asked to inhale/consume CBD when they felt the urge to smoke. 42% of the participants were able to abstain from smoking cigarettes after one month of consuming CBD. This particular study was not conducted in a controlled environment and relied solely on the data provided by the participants (https://cnw.fm/dk3Mq).
Another concern for big tobacco companies interested in the hemp space is the quality of soil, as soil contamination, caused by poor farming practices in the past, is considered an issue, primarily in Europe and the Eastern parts of the United States.
Green Hygienics Holdings (OTCQB: GRYN) addresses this problem as well. The soils on its’ 824-acre Sol Valley Ranch are pristine, which is a critical factor in supply chain requirements.
With the capability of ensuring a steady supply of quality hemp, GRYN is one of the few companies that has the ability to supply big tobacco and is set to leverage multiple growth opportunities resulting from a growing demand for hemp in North America following the entry of big tobacco companies into the market.
Additionally, Green Hygienics’ U.S. Food and Drug Administration registration as of August 26, 2020, also opens up more expansive growth opportunities for the company, allowing it to supply hemp to various industries, including tobacco.
Green Hygienics is uniquely positioned to meet the growing demand for hemp resulting from big tobacco entering the market. There are only a handful of companies in the entire industry that have the capacity to meet this kind of demand.
CEO Ron Loudoun discussed the company’s growth plans in more detail when he was featured on the Bell2Bell podcast at the end of March (https://cnw.fm/77EGl).
