Industrial hemp has a market potential of hundreds of billions. Because of this, many industrial hemp companies or companies involving industrial hemp have emerged in China, such as the well-known Hemp Investment Group, Hansu Biotechnology, Hanqiang Biotechnology, Hanmu Sen Biotechnology, Rhein Biotechnology, Huafang Industrial Hemp Co., Ltd. and so on. There are also some domestic giants entering the field of industrial hemp, such as Kunyao Group, Yunnan Baiyao Group, and Conba Group.
In addition, there are actually some overseas Chinese who are not known in the country who are also working hard for the development of the industrial hemp industry. Today, I will reveal the secrets of industrial hemp companies founded by overseas Chinese.
1. HanMa International Corporation (Canada)-the world’s largest cannabis-related social networking and e-commerce platform
HanMa International Corporation is a company founded by Chinese in Canada. It is located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It was established in January 2019. Its website “大麻味试DaMaWish.com” is currently the world’s largest cannabis media social e-commerce platform. In addition, this company also owns many brands such as 大麻地图DaMaMaps and MaFun.
The founder of HanMa International Corporation is Lawrence Qiao, who immigrated to Canada from China as a child, and it has been more than 20 years. Before 2017, he had never been exposed to cannabis, but it was not until his father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and sought medical treatment to no avail, he began to understand the medical value of cannabis and hemp cbd. Canada is one of the most advanced countries in the global medical system, but there is still no way to combat cancer, but CBD is very likely to be effective in treating cancer.
Unfortunately, in the end, Lawrence Qiao’s father passed away at the end of 2017. In order to let more Chinese friends around the world understand the benefits of hemp, promote the development of hemp medical use, and help more people get rid of the torture of illness, Lawrence Qiao founded the HanMa International Corporation, hoping to benefit the community.
2. Mary Agricultural Technology Company-the first Canadian company to obtain a full set of licenses in China
On May 16, 2017, Mary Agrotechnologies was established in Markham, Ontario, Canada. It is also a Canadian company founded by Chinese. It is also the first company in North America with a full set of licenses in China, including industrial Cannabis cultivation license, and conditional license to extract and process non-psychotic cannabinoids, etc.
Currently, the company is building its first industrial hemp industrial base in Yunnan, China, which is expected to be completed in 2021 . Once the construction is completed and the first batch of industrial hemp crops are harvested, the company plans to sell CBD raw materials to product manufacturers and eventually launch its own series of CBD products.
The founder of Mary Agricultural Technology is a 28-year-old Canadian Chinese Frank Qin. He has been interested in planting all kinds of plants since he was a child, so his initial entrepreneurial project was dealing with plants. With the gradual legalization of cannabis in Canada, Frank Qin saw the development prospects and growth trends of this industry, so he founded Mary Agricultural Technology Company. Up to now, Mary Agrotech’s products have entered Canada and the United States, and have also obtained planting and processing licenses in Yunnan, China. In the future, Frank Qin plans to expand its business scope to all countries where hemp is legalized.
3. US4GM-a cannabis company founded by a female Chinese
US4GM was founded in California, USA on September 6, 2019. This company has a farm in Brentwood, Northern California, USA, covering an area of nearly 411 acres (about 1.663 million square meters). The farm grows industrial hemp that meets GMP world standards.
The founder of US4GM is Ms. He Enlan. During his stay in the United States, he concentrated on research and cultivated the finest hemp flower with good quality and high yield. In late May 2019, he obtained the first license to grow industrial hemp in Northern California. Soon, she founded the US4GM company. Ms. He Enlan sees development prospects in the treatment of diseases with industrial hemp CBD. With such a huge business opportunity, she hopes to promote cooperation with domestic entrepreneurs to create a brand that belongs to the Chinese.
4. Hemp Australia-hemp greenhouse cultivation solution provider
Headquartered in New South Wales, Australia, Hemp Australia focuses on providing greenhouse cultivation solutions, including hydroponic equipment, innovative hemp CBD products and the development and production of medicinal hemp. As a vertically integrated industrial hemp and medical hemp company, Hemp Australia can independently extract, manufacture and distribute. The company is committed to becoming a bridge between Australia and China’s industrial hemp industry.
Jeffrey Tang, the founder of Hemp Australia, is Chinese. He is not only the co-founder and CEO of Hemp Australia but also a director of the Australian Industrial Hemp Association.
Industrial hemp is a treasure all over, showing great development potential in the fields of clothing, papermaking, beauty, chemicals, bio-energy, food and health care, medicine, etc. However, on a global scale, the development of this industry is still in a rather chaotic initial stage of development, and it needs to be promoted by all people in the industry. As the saying goes, heroes emerge in troubled times. There are already more and more dreaming Chinese entrepreneurs starting companies to enter industrial hemp . Who can stand out and become the leader in this industry? let us wait and see.
