About Algae International Group, Inc. and The American Seed & Oil Company, Inc.

(OTC: ALGA) Algae International Group, Inc. first became interested in the cannabis opportunity last year while attempting to build a business to produce bio diesel from cold pressed algae oil. While the ‘promise’ of the cannabis market is great, the path to achieving the ‘promise’ is unclear. An incubator improves the odds of success in an early and rapidly evolving market by building multiple, complimentary businesses with an initial strategy to explore market opportunity rather than to attempt seizing market opportunity prematurely. Accordingly, the Company is starting with three incubated subsidiaries, and will continue to explore the introduction of additional complimentary subsidiaries. As subsidiaries develop to a viable stage of independence, the Company will spinoff such subsidiaries creating independent ROI opportunities for parent shareholders.

Cannabis Now Magazine Celebrates the Return of American Hemp

posted in: | 0


Berkeley, CA (PRWEB) June 03, 2014

Cannabis Now Magazine featured the historic first hemp crop grown in the U.S. in decades on the cover of its latest issue. Photographer Kim Sidwell’s cover image, showcased in the publication driven to enlighten and educate the public on the legitimate and beneficial side of cannabis, demonstrates a celebration of cannabis’ long demonized cousin and a return of the industrial hemp industry in America.

“It’s all about job creation, that’s the whole point of this industry,” Colorado hemp cultivator Ryan Loflin said. “To get small town America back to having jobs that are profitable. The end result in rural America is going to be pretty outstanding. It has so many uses … everything except glass can be made from hemp, it’s a special crop.”

The latest issue of Cannabis Now also includes an article on hemp plastics and the future of the hemp marketplace in areas such as fashion, topical creams, nutrition and building materials.

During World War II American farmers harvested more than 150,000 acres of hemp promoted by the USDA’s Hemp for Victory propaganda film. Growing hemp was banned in the U.S. in 1957; however, non-psychoactive hemp products have remained available domestically, as the industrial hemp itself is grown and imported from countries where it is legal. A provision included in the passage of this year’s Farm Bill now allows colleges and state agencies to grow hemp for research purposes.

Ed Rosenthal’s Marijuana Growers Handbook clarifies that while hemp is a common name for plants in the entire genus of cannabis, the word typically refers to cannabis strains cultivated for industrial (non-drug) use as they contain minimal amounts of THC.

“Featuring hemp on our cover showcases the return of a fiber truly engrained in fabric of America’s history,” Production Manager Ellen Holland said. “At Cannabis Now Magazine, we promote every aspect of the plant including cannabis as a medicine and hemp for oil and fiber. We push for a full understanding of the cannabis plant.”

Cannabis Now supports Hemp History Week‘s efforts to advocate for further federal policy change and supports their 2014 campaign “Hemp: It’s Time to Grow.”

Cannabis Now Magazine is the only cannabis magazine available in iTunes. The bi-monthly print edition is also nationally distributed in Barnes & Noble, 7-Eleven, dispensaries, head shops, smoke shops, bookstores, and numerous other newsstand outlets including the U.K. and Canada.
