Gravitas Infinitum is taking advantage of unprecedented opportunities by developing the Hemp Economy Services Platform which includes business services, whole hemp plant processing using our advanced proprietary technology, and cloud-based customer-centric software under the Gravitas Kannavis (GK) brand.
In 2014, Hemp was legalized by the US Federal Government and currently being legalized across most states. The 2018 Farm Bill reclassified hemp, and it is now legal to grow industrial hemp. USDA's Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) announced a rule that outlines how states can submit plans that will enable producers to grow hemp in those areas. The worldwide market for industrial hemp was estimated to be over $6 billion and growing in 2019 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15% or greater. In addition to favorable changes in U.S. law, the hemp market is benefiting from growing consumer awareness and demand for hemp-based food and a wide-range of industrial products.
Our rapid progress and overwhelming acceptance of the “10 Steps To Hemp Success” model, highlights an industry-wide need for advanced hemp processing, our ability to fill that with a technically superior and scalable approach.
The US hemp industry is poised for rapid growth. It is being assembled by millions of people with little standardization, structure, and transparency. Herein lies what marketing analysts believe is one of the largest economic opportunities is the U.S. We are utilizing our experience in bringing technological innovation and building industry-wide business services platforms to successfully enter and capture a significant share of this emerging market, what many call the new “Hemp Economy”.
Gravitas brings six core strengths to fulfill the industry needs with our Hemp Economy Services Platform. These are; Purchasing Power Aggregation, Logistics Aggregation, Digital Marketing, Sales/Advertising, and Digital Transformation, Automation of business functions and Social Responsibility Values. These are areas that many businesses typically don't invest in or focus on until much later in their growth cycle. We are applying these six core strengths to a new industry that has a positive worldwide impact.
The Company’s strategy is creating a multi-use facility in SW Florida to provide proprietary processor assembly, a location for SW Florida Processing, warehousing, Seedling/Clone Propagation, Global Hemp Training and Technology center, and Corporate headquarters.
Processing Assembly: These activities are already in progress. Current plans and client agreements target May-June 2020 for 1st processors being commissioned. Facility can scale to 2-4 systems per month being assembled, with room for expansion in the current building. This facility will be the Southeastern USA parts and maintenance depot and will also house the operations team running systems 7x24.
Seedling/Clone Propagation: Planned for automated hydroponic seedling and clone propagation as a Florida Certified Seedling/Clone provider. Pending Florida approved rules and permitting to be made available to the company in January of 2020. The facility will ramp up to provide seedlings/clones for 2,000 acres, with 2,000 plants per acre and two harvests or 8,000,000 seedlings/clones this will support 1 processor. We will scale this as acreage expands and will also sell retail seedlings/clones.
Global Hemp Training and Technology Center: This will encompass our own hydroponic grow-out systems to full mature plants for processor testing, materials, and genetics testing. Training for processor operators/maintenance personnel, hemp applied materials research, and liaison with county, state, federal teams.
