Abraham Paiss & Associates, Inc. (APA) has been involved in the industrial hemp industry for more than 7 years. In November 2012, APA principal Zev Paiss founded the Rocky Mountain Hemp Association. Within six months, our firm was serving as a national resource for hemp farmers, processors, businesses, elected officials, and policymakers across the U.S.
Seeing the need for a national trade organization dedicated to American hemp farmers and businesses, we created the National Hemp Association (NHA). Zev served as NHA Executive Director for 3 1/2 years through September 2016.
In 2017, our firm co-founded RAWmarket.place known as the Hemp Marketplace, the world’s largest and most active online platform for vetted hemp transactions. Our custom software was created by a Silicon Valley team led by RAWmarket.place co-founder and CEO Joheem Loh, whose award-winning company has over 20 years building systems, applications, and experiences for major brands and Fortune 500 companies (Sony PlayStation, Google), rock stars (Black Eyed Peas) and startups (ReaderBee, SummitK12).
APA is honored to provide consulting services to guide companies on how best to:
• Enter the hemp industry and prosper
• Understand emerging trends, advanced technologies, and opportunities in the U.S. hemp supply chain
