“We believe the Republic of Mali, as well as other African nations, will see multiple benefits from the introduction of hemp as a widely cultivated crop,” said Charles Larsen, President and CEO of Global Hemp Group. “We are excited to work with IER to demonstrate hemp’s viability for Mali, and develop the best methods to ensure hemp aids both Mali’s economy and ecology.”

GLOBAL HEMP GROUP ISSUES ALBERTA CROP REPORT

Hemp crop healthy, expected to produce full yield by October

SURREY, BRITISH COLUMBIA (July 16, 2014) – Global Hemp Group (“GHG” or the “Company”) (CSE: GHG; OTCQB: GBHPF; Frankfurt: GHG) is pleased to report that the 1,500 acres seeded in June are healthy and at varying stages of growth. Some fields were stalled by excessive rain, but are recovering nicely with recent good weather and warm sunshine. All other fields are in excellent shape with minimal weed control necessary. Irrigation and additional fertilizing will take place this week on designated fields, while the dry land fields will be left to Mother Nature.

GHG crops are on target to produce an estimated 1.5 million pounds of hemp seed in October of this year, which management expects will translate into profitable revenues and cash flow for the Company in 2014.

GHG and the Alberta farmers have mutually agreed upon a restructuring of the contractual agreements for the 1,500 acres of hemp. $150,000 has already been paid into the farmers’ trust, with additional payments of $225,000 and $375,000 due on July 30 and Sept. 15, respectively, and a final payment of $750,000 due on delivery. The revised agreement includes 1,500,000 warrants to purchase GHG stock at $0.15 for two years, subject to regulatory approval.

“This revised agreement shows that GHG and our agriculture partners remain closely aligned in working to achieve a common goal: restoring hemp’s place as a major North American commodity,” said Charles Larsen, CEO of Global Hemp Group Inc. “We are encouraged by the both the strength of the hemp crop so far, and the enduring strength of our farming partnership, and hope both represent only the beginning of greater things to come.”

Global Hemp Group Africa partners GHG with a consortium of established and promising companies positioned to ensure Africa reaps the myriad of benefits associated with the growth of the hemp industry. Partners include House of Hemp, the sole private company with permits to grow hemp in South Africa; Omega Scientific Research (OSR); KK Trust; and House of Mandela Agricultural Holdings, founded by Dr. Phumla Makaziwe Mandela.

GHGA will initially commence operations with pre-commercial research trials to grow hemp in close collaboration with Kuzuko Lodge, an innovative game reserve in the Karoo aligned with GHG’s vision of economic opportunity, environmental justice and social responsibility. Part of Kuzuko Lodge’s land will be set aside for use as a hemp cultivation model, to demonstrate the viability of South Africa’s hemp industry and help GHG prepare to meet its future needs.

Hemp has been called a “wonder crop” and “a strong step to creating productive, healthy and even prosperous conditions in Africa.”1 Worldwide demand for hemp products has increased significantly, and GHGA will ensure the nearly ideal conditions for hemp production in South Africa translate into sustainable jobs, ecosystem restoration and social development for the region.
