SAN DIEGO, CA – Green Globe International Inc. (OTC Pink: GGII) (“GGII”) Hempacco, a wholly-owned subsidiary of GGII, partners with Rick Ross and James Lindsay of Hemp Hop Smokables, LLC., to develop and manufacture a line of hemp blunt smoking paper and Functional Hemp Cannabinoid cigarettes under the new Company Hemp Hop Smokables LLC, furthering Hempacco’s mission of Disrupting Tobacco®.

Hemp Hop Smokables, LLC is a new venture started by Hempacco, Co. Inc., together with Rick Ross and James Lindsay, to develop, manufacture, and market a consumer goods line that includes cannabinoid hemp functional cigarettes and hemp wrap smoking rolling paper.

Hemp Hop will give Rick Ross’s fans at least one carton per week plus drop surprise merchandise. Consumers and fans can register to win a FREE carton of CBD cigarettes by going to www.HempHop.shop.

“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 I would develop a line of smokables to help others with the benefits of Hemp cannabinoids. Working with James Lindsay and Hempacco’s team, including Lue, Jorge, and Sandro, has been fantastic. We’ve already started developing the flavors as well as the look and feel of all the products.”

“Working with Rick Ross and James has been a remarkable experience in professionalism and dedication. The attention to detail Rick brings to the flavoring and developing of the hemp CBD cigarettes and hemp wraps is remarkable,” said Sandro Piancone, CEO and founder of Hempacco.

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

“The name recognition Rick Ross brings to this project is remarkable; just marketing to his base will be an incredible experience. With the help of Rick and James, as well as their entire team, we’re introducing a remarkable new brand this year,” said Jorge Olson, CMO and co-founder of Hempacco.

“This is not my first consumer product. 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 network of distributors are ready to welcome the product to their shelves and provide consumers with a product that has cultural representation,” said James Lindsay, co-founder of Hemp Hop Smokables, LLC.
