Denver, Colorado, May 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE — CBD Global Sciences Inc. (CSE: CBDN; OTC: CBDNF; Frankfurt: GS3), (“CBD Global” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce the start of the 2020 hemp planting season, at our wholly-owned Colorado subsidiary Strasburg Pharms, has begun. This is the Company’s 6th straight year of Hemp production at our 179-acre site. The Company has brought in additional farming expertise this season and, along with our first year of implementing expanded use of feminized seed, we will also be employing some additional techniques that we believe will greatly expand our yields while at the same time significantly reduce our costs per pound of produced biomass.
“The 2020 growing season has arrived at Strasburg Pharms, Colorado, and we look forward to building on the progress we made with the previous year’s harvests,” commented Brad Wyatt, President and CEO. “We look forward to working with our team to optimize all aspects of cultivation and to deliver on a larger mission of bringing wellness to people so they can live happier and healthier lives.”
In order to meet the growing demand for quality CBD products throughout the US, the Company will be planting in excess of 1.7 million feminized seeds which have been derived from our previous high yielding CBD strains. Hemp with higher potency CBD content reduces the amount of biomass required for CBD extracts allowing the maximum benefit in the production of cannabinoids, terpenes and other beneficial compounds. The biomass will be used to create our CBD products sold under our own brands, Aethics and CannaOil, and also for fulfilling orders for our select white label partners throughout the US and other parts of the world.
Our hemp is 100% Colorado grown with all-natural Colorado water, soil, sun and nutrients and NEVER sprayed with pesticides or chemicals. The hot summer days and cool Colorado nights creates the perfect environment for hemp cultivation. On top of that, at 5280 feet above sea level, the farm enables more potent UV rays presenting the perfect state for the plants’ natural photosynthesis reactions to facilitate maximum plant potency and growth.
In addition to the foregoing, CBD Global also announces the grant of an aggregate of 6,000,000 options to acquire common shares of the Company to officers, directors, employees and consultants of the Company, each such options being exercisable at a price of CDN$0.20 per common share for a three-year term expiring on May 19, 2023. These stock options all vest over a 2-year period with one-third vested immediately upon the date of grant and further one-third vesting on each of the first and second anniversaries of the date of grant.
