Vancouver, British Columbia - TheNewswire - March 2, 2020 - Gaia Grow Corp. (TSXV:GAIA) (the "Company" or "Gaia") is pleased to report that it has signed an agreement with CannGroup Development Corp. ("CannGroup") for the sale of 15,000 kilograms of milled hemp powder to CannGroup for processing into CBD oil and distillate. Milled hemp powder is an ideal feedstock for the production of CBD oil and distillate and is produced by separating the CBD-rich elements of the hemp plant (such as flowers and leaves) from the low-CBD elements (such as stalks and branches) and grinding them into a powder. Gaia has agreed to sell 15,000 kilograms of milled hemp powder to CannGroup for $110 per kilogram. Pursuant to the agreement, starting on or around March 4, 2020 Gaia will deliver 1,000 kilograms of milled hemp powder to CannGroup every week until the aggregate 15,000 kilograms has been delivered.
CannGroup operates a Health Canada licensed extraction facility and operates an ethanol extraction lab.
Gaia is a licenced hemp producer under the Industrial Hemp Regulations (Canada), with approximately 4.2 million lbs of hemp biomass from its 2019 harvest and the capacity to mill 1 tonne of hemp biomass into milled hemp powder per hour. Both Gaia and CannGroup expect to increase output over the coming months and the Company will provide additional information as it becomes available.
"The alignment we have with CannGroup is absolutely incredible" said Frederick Pels, CEO of Gaia. "Our mutual success, product quality and organic growth are the fundamental goals we share, and I look forward to a long standing and successful relationship with CannGroup. We are so excited with all opportunities to come in the near future as we continue to innovate and grow together. This is just the beginning."
