Hempacco launches Organipure, Inc., a 50/50 joint venture with HSTI, with the goal of Disrupting Tobacco(TM) by significantly taking the cannabis aroma out of hemp

San Diego, California--(Newsfile Corp. - November 17, 2022) - Hempacco Co., Inc. (NASDAQ: HPCO) ("Hempacco" or the "Company"), a hemp smokables company that is Disrupting Tobacco™, a nearly $1 Trillion industry, with hemp cigarettes, smoking paper, and other alternatives to nicotine tobacco, announced today it has entered into a joint venture agreement with High Sierra Technologies, Inc. ("HSTI") to manufacture, market, and distribute Low Odor Hemp Cigarettes and Smokables based on the patented and patent pending technologies of HSTI as well as the patented and patent pending technologies held by Hempacco.

On November 7, 2022, HSTI and Hempacco formed a new Nevada corporation known as Organipure, Inc. ("Organipure"). HSTI and Hempacco each own fifty percent of the equity interests of Organipure. HSTI has developed and patented the technology to produce low-odor cannabis and hemp consumer products. This technology allows one to enjoy the benefits of smoking cannabis and hemp, without the lingering pungent smell associated with smoking cannabis and hemp. HSTI owns the patents and the patents pending for this ground breaking technology.

Hempacco also entered into a Hemp Smokables Manufacturing Agreement with Organipure where it will manufacture hemp smokables for Organipure as the exclusive worldwide manufacturer and supplier of hemp smokables to Organipure. Hempacco will now be able to produce hemp cigarettes without the unwanted cannabis aroma. Hempacco can then add aromas using the terpene spraying patented technology held by Hempacco and infuse the filter, using certain other patents held by Hempacco to achieve the goal of Disrupting Tobacco™. Hempacco owns the machinery and has licensed the patents for the application of this ground breaking technology.

"We are extremely enthusiastic and privileged to enter into this joint venture with Hempacco," stated Dr. Vincent Lombardi, President and CEO of High Sierra Technologies, Inc. "The combination of our patented and patent pending low odor cannabis/hemp technology and Hempacco's market dominance and manufacturing ability is a perfect marriage and will be a game-changer in the smokable hemp industry," concluded Mr. Lombardi.

"Many people will not smoke hemp cigarettes if they smell like cannabis. One of our priorities was to remove the cannabis odor from our smokables. This new joint venture with High Sierra Technologies is the final step in our equation to Disrupt Tobacco™," explained Jorge Olson, Co-Founder and CMO of Hempacco. "We will be able to make hemp products in different flavors and aromas, starting by neutralizing the cannabis aroma with this patented and patent pending technology and then adding specific flavorings," concluded Mr. Olson.

"We've been collaborating with Mr. Lombardi and High Sierra Technologies for over a year, developing the best technology possible to take the smell out of hemp. Now with this partnership we have solidified our relationship and our go to market strategy to manufacture hemp smokables that do not smell like cannabis," said Sandro Piancone, Co-Founder and CEO of Hempacco. "I believe the holy grail for hemp smokables is to have an odorless hemp smokable. Think of the possibilities of now being able to smoke hemp products inside a casino and not get asked to leave or lighting up a hemp smokable on your lunch break and not get called by HR because you smell like cannabis," concluded Mr. Piancone.
