NEW YORK, August 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

According to a research

by Arcview Market Research, CBD and legal cannabis products are forecast to reaccelerate in the beginning of 2018. The sales of products for legal recreational use will increase in Canada, California,
and Massachusetts, along with medical sales in Florida. This growth will push the $6.7-billion market of 2016 at a robust 27% CAGR to $22.6 billion in 2021. According to the report, the 20+% annual growth rate is likely to continue for many years past 2021, as more states and countries legalize cannabis.

The data demonstrates the hemp industry is growing quickly at 22% five year CAGR and being led by food and body care products, with Hemp CBD products showing a 53% AGR."

Mr. Gillespie is also a strong recruiter with extensive sales management experience, and an aptitude for business development. Most importantly, Mr. Gillespie is passionate about our 'OptHemp' product line and about the development of a network marketing division. I am confident in his ability to oversee the operations of ChineseHempOil.com. With the appointment of Mr. Yun and Mr. Gillespie, I can dedicate my attention to the Company's core financial services/media business.
