(collectively referred to as “369Hemp®”), for a combination of cash and common stock.
Born from a passion for craftsmanship and quality, 369Hemp®’s mission is to pioneer the creation, production, and distribution of hemp cigarettes. Utilizing time-tested techniques from master hemp growers and cigarette manufacturers, 369Hemp® creates products of the highest caliber from a 30,000 sq ft facility in North Carolina. 369Hemp® current brands include 369Hemp and white-labeled hemp cigarettes. The distribution model consists of online direct to consumer, in-store retail, and wholesale markets. Hemp Industry Daily estimates the smokeable hemp market to reach $300-400M by 2025.
“I was fortunate enough to meet Travis Priddy through mutual relationships several years ago. We immediately connected on common strategies and opportunities. I am thrilled to now bring the innovation of these new brands to the smokeable hemp industry. By adding an established hemp cigarette manufacturing platform to Indoor Harvest’s business, we are confident we will immediately reap the rewards from 369Hemp®’s team and technology to market, manufacture, and distribute hemp cigarettes globally,” said Leslie Bocskor, CEO and Chairman of INQD. “We believe there is vast opportunity in this space and by capturing just a small percentage of the North American market we will be a strong contender in smokeable hemp. Travis is truly a shining star, and we are lucky to have him and his team as a part of Indoor Harvest.”
“I have been dreaming of working with Leslie since we met in 2018,” said Travis Priddy, CEO and founder of 369Hemp®. “We have created an authentic, true quality alternative cigarette to what most smokers are currently accustomed to with manufacturing efficiency at speeds to scale. We designed a system to run premium biomass and use the best grade material which is hemp flower that is USDA compliant farm regulated hemp, registered, and certified by the state of North Carolina. Indoor Harvest will help us lay the foundation to create the Gold Standard to deliver on the promise of a truly healthy alterative for smokers.”
Priddy is a seasoned cigarette industry sales executive and entrepreneur, with more than 20 years’ experience. He has previously worked for Altria and Philip Morris International in both domestic and international markets.
