Marijuana Company Of America Inc (OTCMKTS:MCOA)’s JV Completes 10,000 Sq. Ft. Greenhouse Set up; Provides Update on Oregon Project

Published

on

Marijuana Company Of America Inc (OTCMKTS:MCOA) recently announced that its Joint Venture with Bougainville Ventures Inc. based in Washington has completed 10,000 sq ft greenhouse set up. However, it is yet to complete the final step of inspection which is required to commence cultivation. The company also along with its partner Global Hemp Group recently provided an update on the Scio, Oregon-based CBD hemp farming project.

MCOA & Global Hemp Group To Maximize Planting Density

MCOA & Global Hemp Group are planning to maximize planting density. And for that the companies have decided to purchase an additional 20,000 high yielding CBD hemp clones. These clones will be delivered by the end of May and the planting will start by the first half of June this year. Already the garden operations are underway with the initial nursery and propagation rooms for clones being expanded for making space for additional production of clones in the current season.

The team of Global Hemp Group and MCOA will begin planting clones on the first 35 acres of their farm in Oregon. To meet their production target, the two companies have already purchased five additional greenhouses. The first two greenhouses are of 30 ft x 120 ft and will provide extra greenhouse space of 7,200 for the project. While planting the clones care will be taken to provide adequate space for each plant so that it receives sufficient sunlight, nutrients, water by planting the rows 5 feet apart.

Washington-Based Project Ready For Inspection

 The JV greenhouse setup between MCOA and Bougainville Ventures Inc. is now ready for inspection. As per reports, the construction crew has already installed new security system and is completing the installation of wiring and mounting panels, plugs and switches, the HVAC system and fans. Donald Steinberg, MCOA CEO said, “As landlords we are looking forward to providing a turnkey property to the first of hopefully many licensed tenants in Washington. Providing a turnkey facility for tenant growers is an ideal cultivation environment for tenants with minimal start-up capital and consistent rental income for MCOA.”

According to reports, MCOA is expecting that the final inspection of the security, as well as the greenhouse construction, will be carried out in the coming days. Once the building of the 30,000 sq ft is complete it will house around 4,000 plants.

Digipath Inc. (OTCMKTS: DIGP) Announce Significant Milestones On Development Of GroSciences Hemp-Test Kit

Published

on

Digipath Inc. (OTCMKTS:DIGP) has announced that its GroSciences subsidiary has made substantial progress in the development of its Tru-Hemp ID project that is targeted for commercial availability at the end of this year or early 2020.

GroSciences announce the development of the hemp-testing kit

GroSciences is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Digipath that uses proprietary research and data testing experience to come up with “The Science to Succeed” for its clients who are looking for expert guidance on identification and formulations. Digipath recently announced that it is developing field testing kit through its subsidiary GroSciences. The kit tests for cannabis, hemp, and other products and it has many applications and it can be used by farmers and law enforcement.

The subsidiary has so far completed the initial testing of the Tru-Hemp ID at two different facilities. Tru-Hemp is a DNA-based test kit that has the capability of distinguishing legal industrial hemp from street type cannabis. The kit will be vital in addressing the growing need in the fast-growing hemp industry since it is not easy to distinguish legal industrial hemp from high-THC cannabis which is a Schedule I Controlled Substance.

Beta-test for the Tru-Hemp ID kit in August

GroSciences is currently planning a beta-test for Tru-Hemp ID kit in New York, Vermont, and North Carolina as from August. The company is also in talks with regulators and growers from Colorado, Oregon, and California to test the kit.

Digipath Chief Science Officer, Dr. Cindy Orser indicated that the company has made significant milestones in the development of the Tru-Hemp ID. Cindy said that besides the developing of the technology that the Tru-Hemp test kit uses the company has also partnered with leading hemp farmers to carry out independent testing of the technology. She adds that that will be vital in accelerating the company’s path to commercial availability of the testing kit.

According to the CEO of Digipath Todd Denkin, the deployment of the testing kit in the commercial market place will be a good revenue stream for the company.

Published

on

Harvest Health & Recreation Inc (OTCMKTS:HRVSF) recently announced that it launched a new outlet in Gainesville, making it the company’s sixth medical marijuana store in Florida.

Florida is one of the markets that Harvest Health targets heavily for its medical cannabis products. The company has so far secured licenses for 35 medical dispensaries in the state as well as a license for a manufacturing facility and a cultivation facility. So far Harvest Health has launched six dispensaries in Florida including the latest one located in Gainesville.

The company’s new dispensary in Gainesville will be opened every day from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m local time. The store will stock a variety of products including capsules and vape pens but there are plans to expand the product variety in the future. The firm has also invested in training staff so that they can help patients to pick out the best suited personalized medical marijuana treatments.

“We’re thrilled to be bringing our high-quality cannabis products to patients in Gainesville as we continue to expand our footprint in Florida, the third most populous state in the country,” stated Jason Vedadi, Harvest Health’s executive chairman.

Harvest Health discloses its Q2 2019 preliminary revenue figures

Harvest Health released its preliminary results for the second quarter of 2019 earlier this month. The company revealed that it expects its revenue for the quarterly period to come in between $26 and $27 million.

Harvest Health also anticipates its consolidated revenue for the second quarter to be between $75 and $77 million which will range between 47% and 51% higher than the consolidated revenue reported in Q1. This is on a Pro-forma basis, factoring in completed acquisitions including Urban Greenhouse and Leaf Life, as well as pending acquisitions which include Devine Holdings, CannaPharmacy, Verano and Falcon.

Harvest Health & Recreation Inc (OTCMKTS:HRVSF) Gets Greenlight To Expand Its Foreign Private ISSUER Threshold

Published

on

By

Harvest Health & Recreation Inc (OTCMKTS:HRVSF) revealed earlier this month that its Board of Directors has approved a plan to increase the firm’s foreign private issuer threshold by 9.99%.

The approval will allow the company to expand the foreign private issuer threshold from the current 40% to 49.99%. The threshold increment is also in line with Harvest Health’s guidelines. The company operates as a foreign private issuer in the U.S which means that U.S residents directly or indirectly own less than 50% of the firm’s stake.

“Our vision is to become the most valuable cannabis company in the world and the adjustments related to the FPI per the Board consent will help fuel Harvest’s growth,” stated Steve White, the CEO of Harvest Health.

White also noted that it is important for any company to have access to a decent capital pool to secure long-term success. It also falls in line with Harvest Health’s goal of giving customers a high-quality experience. The Board of Directors’ consent also allows for the appointment of an officer that will make sure the firm complies with the company’s articles as part of its FPI status.

The Articles allow Multiple Voting Shares (MVS) to be converted to Subordinate Voting Shares (SVS) but only if they do not surpass the set threshold, in this case, the 49.99% level. The Articles require the firm to employ reasonable commercial efforts to make sure that conversions such as the recently announced ones do not surpass the 49.99% threshold.

Harvest Health secures $225 million credit facility to finance its expansion

Harvest Health also announced at the end of July that it secured a loan of $225 million which it plans to use fund its expansion plans in the cannabis industry. The company will receive the loan in three tranches of $75 million.

The loan will be backed by Torian Capital Partners which is a well-known investment firm in Miami. Harvest also announced that the funds will be used to secure strategic acquisitions, to boost working capital and also to support the company’s general corporate purposes. Harvest Health will secure the loan through its assets which include dispensary licenses.
