Phoenix, Arizona, Nov. 26, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE — SinglePoint Inc. (OTC:SING) recaps 2019 and looks ahead to 2020. As the company comes off its largest 3rd quarter in history, exceeding $1,000,000 in revenue for the quarter. The company continues to see expanded growth in two major markets, Hemp and Solar. Throughout Q4 and into 2020 SinglePoint will focus on growing these two market segments as demand increases for both. SinglePoint recently launched 1606 hemp which will have its major debut at the December 11-13, 2019 MJBIZCON where thousands will converge at the Las Vegas Convention Center to see the latest products in the industry. SinglePoint expects the sale of 1606 to be a large contributor in 2020 to overall company growth.
“We are excited for the launch of our 1606 Original Pre-rolled Hemp. We believe we can quickly scale the sales of this product via ecommerce and retail buyers. The Hemp Pre-rolls have a major profit margin which will support continued organic growth,” states Wil Ralston, President SinglePoint.
1606 Original Hemp cigarettes are nicotine and tobacco free. Some research suggests that smoking hemp cigarettes could be a potential tool to replace tobacco and nicotine addictions. According to a Brightfield Group survey of more than 5,000 CBD users in the U.S.:
· 24% have used it to help quit smoking.
· Quitters are often replacing cigarettes with either smokable hemp or vaping.
· 41% of quitters have entirely replaced traditional smoking with hemp CBD.
According to a June 2019 market research report published by MarketsandMarkets™, the industrial hemp market is projected to grow from $4.6 billion in 2019 to $26.6 billion by 2025, recording a compound annual growth rate of 34.0% during the forecast period. The cannabidiol (CBD) market is on track to grow to $23.7 billion through 2023, according to Brightfield Group. The firm also estimated the smokable hemp market to be valued at $11.5 million in 2018, a growth of 250% from 2017.
“We have an exceptional strategic plan in making SinglePoint one of the biggest publicly traded companies in the Smokable hemp space. We believe we offer investors and our current shareholders tremendous value given our leadership position in several explosive markets including ecommerce, Hemp and Solar. As SinglePoint continues to grow revenue and profit we continue to strive for meeting the qualifications to apply for a listed exchange,” states Greg Lambrecht, CEO SinglePoint.
SinglePoint predicts growth in its markets will continue. Support for legalization passed Wednesday when lawmakers in the House Judiciary Committee approved a Bill that stands to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level. The Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act of 2019 (the “MORE Act”) passed by a wide margin with bipartisan support. This bill will now head to Senate; this is just the first of many steps but as support continues SinglePoint believes it will only continue to open up options for businesses to obtain legal payment processing accounts. SinglePoint is currently growing its portfolio of accounts and as soon as the company believes there is a viable, stable payments option it will be able to onboard additional clients.
As SinglePoint’s Hemp business continues to blossom, Direct Solar of America drives additional expansion. Direct Solar, a subsidiary of SinglePoint Inc.
