What is your company's primary cannabis business?: Manufacturing

Does your company touch the plant?: Yes

Do you authorize us to provide the following (Pitch Deck) information to our Members?: Yes

Company's Bio (Pitch Deck): The CHPC is an LCA (Limited Cooperative Association) We have Patron Shareholders and Investor Shareholders and are looking to raise $8-10 Million to build our first Industrial Hemp Processing Facility in southeastern Colorado as well as portable biochar propagation and rejuvenation Modules. We have Divided Colorado into 6 regions and we will add more Processing Facilities as demand dictates in each region to minimize transportation costs. As per LCA Statutes, a minimum of 50% of the profits have to go to the Patron Shareholders who are Shareholders that are involved in some aspect of the Cannabis or Industrial Hemp Business. As per LCA Statutes, all Shareholders, regardless of number of shares owned, get one vote on all Shareholder voting issues. This lets all Shareholders have an equal voice and rewards the hardworking Patron Shareholders who don't have a lot of investment capital.

We are also working the Institute for Cannabis Research at Colorado State University Pueblo to create construction materials that we call "Hempwood™" to be used in conjunction with Hemp Fiberboard and HempCrete. This will be a huge market for our materials as construction is booming and the costs of current construction materials made from wood are skyrocketing. The ICR is also working with us to perfect Oxidatively Modified Hemp Activated Charcoal Filters to remediate our polluted water supplies. This will be an open source formula that anyone can utilize as everyone deserves a clean glass of water. The preliminary tests of these filters show they can even filter out radioactive materials. This will also be a huge positive PR initiative for the Hemp Industry.

C-Suite Bio's (Pitch Deck): Duane D. Stjernholm (Pen Name Dane Starland) was born in La Junta, Colorado, a small town in the southeastern corner of the state. Raised in nearby Cheraw, an even smaller town, he graduated Co-Valedictorian from Cheraw High School and continued his education at Colorado State University in Ft. Collins, earning a B.S. Degree in Psychology. Seeking to explore the world in search of adventure, he joined the Peace Corps and spent two years in the Philippines working in Rice Irrigation Water Management in the Province of Pampanga, and subsequently teaching Introductory Social Sciences at the University of the Philippines at Los Baños, Laguna. 
Recovering from “Reverse Culture Shock” upon his return to Colorado, he attended the Iliff School of Theology in Denver earning a Master of Arts in Religion Degree, specializing in Religious Philosophy and Metaphysics. Soon after graduation from Iliff he was fortunate to attend a live speech by the renown World Citizen and Inventor, R. Buckmaster Fuller, who inspired him on his current 35 year Mission of changing the prevalent mind-set of humanity from competition to cooperation and collaboration in order to Co-Create the Greatest and Highest Good for all Earth Citizens. To that end he founded the unprecedented Member organization, the United Earth Ecclesia. 
To support and further his Mission he has worked in a number of hospitality and service oriented positions culminating in his last positions as Production Administrator at the nationwide non-profit, Learning Ally (formerly Recording for the Blind and Dyslexic). He has published two books and launched United Earth Ecclesia website,, dedicated to the Co-Creation of the Greatest and highest Good for all Earth Citizens.
Returning to La Junta after a 40 year absence to be closer to relatives and out of the big city, Duane saw a need for hemp processing facilities in the Arkansas Valley and beyond for the rapidly expanding hemp industry in Colorado. He responded to the "find a need and fill it" adage, and as a result he and his Co-Founder have established the Colorado Hemp Processing Cooperative to fill that need.
Carly Stjernholm was born in Rapid City SD and raised in Sioux Falls SD where she graduated high school. She continued her education in Omaha NE and after moves to Santa Clara CA, Wichita KS and Dallas TX, she joined the rest of her family in Littleton CO. She has spent 44 years in Sales and Marketing including, 10 years in the Ski Industry, 15 years in Space Planning and Design and 19 years in Retail Management. 
14 years ago Carly and Duane joyously married on the top of Pikes Peak, and they currently reside in their Quirky House in La Junta, Colorado.

Growth Plan (Pitch Deck): Phase One is turning waste CBD and legal MJ stalks into biochar for soil and water remediation and filtration.
Phase Two is building full hemp plant processing facilities to produce seed, flower, bast and hurd.
Phase Three is to connect like-minded Cooperatives in every state by each Cooperative being a Shareholder in every other Cooperative so we are all working together and sharing all best practice protocols and resources.

Investment Opportunities (Pitch Deck) : We are iinitially raising $400K for the Portable Biochar Modules and then $8M for our initial Showcase Processing Facility in southeastern Colorado. Patron Shares are $100 apiece. Investor Shares are $1000 apiece. Excess Revenues will initially be distributed to Patron Shareholders as per Statute, but the other 50% of the generated Excess Revenues will go to paying back the Investor Shareholders their full investment. Once paid back their Investor Shares will revert to Patron Shares with a Patron share of the Distributed Excess Revenues in perpetuity. So, for Investor Shareholders, they get all their investment back and in essence a 10% additional return (the cost of the Patron Share) and a pro rata share of all Excess Revenue Distributions in perpetuity.
