"I truly believe in the health benefits of hemp derived products," said Rick Ross, co-founder of Hemp Hop Smokables, LLC. "Having had my own health scares, and through my healing process, I decided to develop a line of smokables to help others with the benefits of hemp cannabinoids. Working with James Lindsay and Hempacco's team, including Lou, Jorge, and Sandro, we have brought this vision to life, and we look forward to introducing these game-changing products to fans and consumers alike."

The partnership allows Hemp Hop to use Hempacco's team and intellectual property, including patents, to flavor, develop, infuse and manufacture hemp cigarettes.

"Working with Rick and James and their entire team, we have brought this project to commercial stage in six months," said Sandro Piancone, Co-Founder and CEO of Hempacco. "Combining the brand recognition of Rick Ross, who has over 27 million followers on social media, with the massive distribution network of supermarkets and convenience stores across the country built by James and Rap Snacks over the last 27 years, should enable us to rapidly ramp sales in the months and quarters ahead."

"This is not my first consumer product," commented Lindsay. "I launched Rap Snacks 27 years ago with the vision to create products that speak to the culture. Now Rap Snacks are sold in supermarkets and convenience stores all over the country. Our expansive distributer network is ready to welcome Hemp Hop products to their shelves and provide consumers with a product that has cultural representation."
