A North American company has turned to the crowdfunding scene to raise cash for its hemp bioplastics venture.

Canadian Industrial Hemp Corporation (CIHC) has so far raised more than $1 million of a $5 million dollar target that will go towards building a factory to mass-produce plastic pellets made from agricultural waste – including hemp.

The company says it has patent-pending technology featuring artificial intelligence to reduce cost and improve quality compared to existing global competitors, but that it would use high-throughput automated equipment already in use across Europe and Asia.

Protein has a substantial role in baking. Beyond the Nutrition Facts, protein plays a big part in conditioning dough by providing structure, retaining moisture, adding texture, and so on. But as plant-based ingredients take the place of traditional animal proteins, the formulation expectations also change. For formulators that solve these challenges, the market opportunity is undeniable, as grocery sales of plant-based foods that directly replace animal products grew to over $7 billion in the past year (SPINS retail sales data, April 6, 2021). The astonishing 27% growth is a testament to the innovation and R&D in this space. Yet new ingredients must emerge in this growing category for plant proteins to sustain this trend in supporting more diverse product applications.

Here’s an interesting fact for your next Zoom call “ice breaker,” an 800-pound cow will produce about 100 pounds of poop a day.

There are about 9 million dairy cows in the United States at any given time, producing about 900 million pounds of poop a day. Second in volume only to the House and Senate. It’s a lot of poop, and of course one of the results of their waste is methane. Before we all get on our Impossible Burger soapboxes, there are technologies available today that are harvesting the power of cow poop to help capture methane gasses, recycle water for farms, and even create fertilizer that is cleaner and more abundant than peat moss and other fertilizer components.

As different as they may seem, there's some overlap between the cannabis industry and biotech that's worth understanding as an investor. Cultivators can use biotechnology to manipulate the genes of marijuana plants to increase their yield, and biotechs can use the bioactive chemicals contained in cannabis as jumping-off points for drug development efforts. 

Both of the companies I'll analyze today conduct their business within these overlapping regions. And, if their efforts continue to pan out as planned, they'll be valuable stocks to own, especially as the biotech sector becomes more sophisticated and as the cannabis industry scales to match global demand.
