The current rate of yearly plastic production is now about one billion tons. That is quoting a University of Leicester study. Plastic is inert and hard to degrade. So it becomes a toxic techno-waste that has severe polluting effects on the earth’s biodiversity.
National Geographic reports that plastic kills millions of marine and land animals every year. Experts have found that we are all consuming microplastics. The effects of these microplastics in the food supply may cause damage to our digestive and reproductive systems and eventually lead to an early death.
Mother Nature has provided a simple solution to this menace: The Hemp Plant.
ESCONDIDO, Calif., Jan. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Marijuana Company of America Inc. (“MCOA” or the “Company“) (OTCQB: MCOA), an innovative hemp and cannabis corporation, is pleased to announce that the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, hempSMART Inc., has signed a definitive sales agreement to purchase ultra-clean label CBD beverage products from MCTC Holdings Inc. (OTC: MCTC), a science and technology innovation company focused on developing patented hemp extract infusion technologies and the sustained release of cannabinoids in the human body.
These new hempSMART™ branded products will be unique to the marketplace. During the initial stage, MCOA will offer a line of powdered drink mixes containing broad-spectrum hemp extracts with over 35 milligrams of CBD derived from all-natural extraction processes. Future offerings will include other powdered and pre-mixed beverages. The entire drink line will be based on some of the finest ingredients available to the marketplace, with a heavy emphasis on organic components where available.
Mr. Jesus Quintero, Chief Executive Officer of MCOA, stated, “At MCOA and hempSMART, it is all about the label and offering the highest quality products to our customers. With this line of drinks, we will be offering our customers a clean and healthy label that is currently absent in the marketplace. There are no chemicals, surfactants, or preservatives in this product line, and while we are not able to obtain full organic certification due to federal restrictions, we are at 95% organic for the entire line. It’s a product line we feel great about offering to our customers.”
Trevor Muehlfelder, Chief Operating Officer of hempSMART, said, “We are quite excited to unveil our new, ultra-clean label product line of CBD-infused powdered drink mix. The products are based on a unique dual-hemp extract infusion process that’s unlike most products and have no artificial ingredients or chemicals.

This will truly be a unique, clean label product offering. We believe our new powdered drink line will revolutionize the beverage marketplace in the new 20’s the same way Coca Cola did in the 1920’s.”
Mr. Arman Tabatabaei, Chief Executive Officer of MCTC Holdings Inc., commented, “We have developed a truly unique hemp extract drink product that will be offered to consumers through the new hempSMART wholesale distribution channels.
