Andy Jagpal, President Comments:

“From the money raised, $100,000 CDN went towards paying down the outstanding balance on the purchase price of the Oregon hemp farm. With this payment, to date the company has paid a total of $230,000 USD towards the $350,000 USD purchase price, which will leave a remaining $120,000 USD to complete. We expect this final payment to be paid on the signing of the Definitive Agreement, which is very close to being finalized. Also, I would like to note that this acquisition comes with $250,000 USD of dried hemp in inventory, which was harvested last year. Once the final payment has been paid we plan to process and sell all of the hemp that is sitting in inventory this year.”
