MARIJUANA COMPANY OF AMERICA AND GLOBAL HEMP GROUP PROVIDE UPDATE ON NEW BRUNSWICK HEMP PROJECT


ESCONDIDO, CA -- May 22, 2018 -- MARIJUANA COMPANY OF AMERICA INC. (OTC: MCOA) ("MCOA" or the "Company"), an innovative hemp and cannabis corporation, is pleased to provide an update on its New Brunswick Hemp Project with joint venture partner, Global Hemp Group Inc. (CSE: GHG/ OTC: GBHPF/ FRANKFURT: GHG) (the “Partners”).

The Partners have hired Joan Parker-Duivenvoorden as fulltime project agrologist and field manager for the project. Ms. Parker-Duivenvoorden graduated from Guelph University in 1981 with a BSc (Agr) majoring in plant protection. She has over 15 years-experience with the Nova Scotia Dept of Agriculture and with the New Brunswick Soil and Crop Improvement Association (“NBSCIA”). While working at the NBSCA, she has developed strong ties in the farming community that will prove to be advantageous as the project expands from the initial group of four farmers to more than fifty farmers as envisioned in coming years. In addition to being responsible for the project locally, she will provide advisory services to participating farmers, will conduct on-farm research projects to properly monitor the behaviour of various hemp varieties in different environments of the region. She will also develop training materials to assist farmers who will join the project in subsequent years. One of the long-term research projects headed by Ms. Parker-Duivenvoorden will be to develop a profitable crop rotation for organic hemp, opening the way for organic CBD.

Contracts have now been signed with the initial group of four farmers, who began seeding this season’s 125-acre industrial hemp crop last week. The farmers participating in the project in 2018 are located throughout the northeastern region of New Brunswick, Canada, making for a good cross section of results for research conducted on the behavior of the crop across that region. The distribution of farms will maximize the demonstration effect and will facilitate the recruitment of additional farmers in the following years. This carefully selected group of farmers will actively participate in addressing the introduction of this new crop across different regions.

A 4,000 sq. ft. facility has now been secured in Bathurst, New Brunswick for the project. The building will be used for biomass storage and to install drying equipment that will used to process the fresh material. Dried material will be stored at the facility while awaiting further processing by third party processors. Once proper licenses have been acquired for importing and manufacturing finished CBD products, the site may also serve as a distribution center for the hempSMARTTM and Benihemp line of products.

Global Hemp Group and Marijuana Company of America Provide an Update on Operations for Their Joint Venture CBD Hemp Farm in Scio, Oregon


ESCONDIDO, CA -- May 15, 2018 --GLOBAL HEMP GROUP INC. (“GHG” or the “Company”) (CSE:GHG) (OTC:GBHPF) (FRANKFURT:GHG) and joint venture partner MARIJUANA COMPANY OF AMERICA INC. (OTC: MCOA) (the “Partners”) are pleased to provide an update on their CBD hemp farming project in Scio, Oregon (the “Project”).

Garden operations are well underway at the farm. The initial nursery and propagation rooms for clones has recently been expanded to an additional attached greenhouse as the team continues to produce clones for planting in the current season. In order to maximize planting density, an additional 20,000 high yielding CBD hemp clones are being purchased and will be delivered before the end of May to meet the targeted planting schedule of early June.

The team will be planting the clones on the first 35 acres at the farm. They will be planted “orchard style”, 4 to 5 feet on center, with rows 5 feet apart to provide space for each plant to receive sufficient sunlight, water and nutrients, and mature to maximum size to produce the highest CBD yield possible upon harvest.

Five additional greenhouses have now been purchased for the project. The first two 30ft. x 120ft greenhouses are currently being installed and will provide an additional 7,200 sq. ft. of greenhouse space for the project. The three remaining 42ft x 96ft greenhouses will begin installation before the end of May. When installed, these additional greenhouses will increase greenhouse space by a further 12,096 sq. ft., for a total of 19,296 active greenhouse space.

The Scio farm will employ both traditional outdoor orchard style cultivation and perpetual harvest in greenhouses. The Partners are currently evaluating additional greenhouse technologies for expansion of indoor cultivation space to augment its perpetual harvest model square footage. This dual strategy will optimize revenue generation throughout the year to minimize the impact of single crop harvesting in October when most other hemp CBD farms harvest and typically drive prices down. Market prices tend to climb throughout the year as less biomass is available for processing and distribution, as is occurring with current market prices. By August it is expected that full spectrum CBD oil will be in tight supply and prices will continue to climb until after the October 2018 harvest season is processed.

The team is in the process of ordering the required equipment to facilitate farm operations from planting through harvesting, drying and storage.

In addition, the Partners are currently evaluating a field analytics software application to be employed for data collection and analysis to optimize farming operations. The software will be used to evaluate the three cultivation methods being employed by the Partners in 2018; high yielding CBD cultivars grown orchard style outdoors in Scio, Oregon, perpetual harvest in greenhouses also at Scio, and traditional dense field cropping with lower yielding CBD cultivars in New Brunswick, Canada. Results will assist the team in determining optimal yield per acre for future expansion of acreage in both the United States and Canada.

“The Scio Oregon high yielding CBD hemp project is something that we have been working on putting together most of this year. It’s great to see that the project is now officially underway, and we look forward to sharing pictures and results of the operation as we go forward”, stated Charlie Larsen, President of Global Hemp Group.

About Global Hemp Group Inc.
Global Hemp Group Inc. (CSE:GHG) (OTC:GBHPF) (FRANKFURT:GHG), is headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, with base operations in Montreal and Los Angeles.

Global Hemp Group and Marijuana Company of America Announce Acquisition of 109 Acres of Prime Agricultural Property for Hemp CBD Production in the State of Oregon


ESCONDIDO, CA -- May 01, 2018 --  GLOBAL HEMP GROUP INC. (“GHG” or the “Company”) (CSE:GHG) (OTC:GBHPF) (FRANKFURT:GHG) is pleased to announce that the Company, in partnership with MARIJUANA COMPANY OF AMERICA INC. (OTC: MCOA) ("MCOA" or the "Company"), has acquired a 109 acre agricultural property in Scio, Oregon (the “Property”) for the cultivation of high CBD yielding hemp for the upcoming 2018 growing season.

This particular property was chosen as it has a history of hemp cultivation over the last two growing seasons and contains a high level of organic matter in the soil, which makes it ideal for hemp cultivation. In addition, the property has appropriate irrigation infrastructure that includes sufficient authorized water rights to allow for irrigated cultivation, which is expected to greatly enhance yields of the proposed high CBD hemp cultivars that the partners are planning to grow on the property.

The property, located in the fertile Willamette Valley approximately 70 miles south of Portland, Oregon, was acquired for US$1.1 million. The terms of the acquisition include a cash down payment of US$130,000 and the issuance of 2,100,000 common shares in the share capital of GHG valued at US$275,000, to be delivered within 15 days of closing. The partners are each contributing one half of the cash consideration for the down payment purposes, or the amount of US$65,000. MCOA is also contributing a cash payment equal to one-half of the value of GHG’s stock consideration, or the amount of US$137,500, that will be paid from the expected profits to be produced from the project during the first year of operations.

The GHG common shares to be issued pursuant to the Acquisition Agreement are considered to be issued on a private placement basis, according to the CSE Policy 6. Such common shares are subject to a customary one (1) year hold period pursuant to the provisions of Rule 144 of the Securities Act of 1933. The balance, the amount of US$695,000, is a promissory note (“the Note”) issued to the current owner, which matures on May 1, 2021. Interest on the Note is set at 4.0% per annum, adjustable on the first day of October each year, based on the closing interest rate of the Ten-Year U.S. Treasury Note on September 30th plus 1.15%. The Note calls for monthly payments of US$7,036.54 beginning as of June 1, 2018, and a final payment of the remaining balance on May 1, 2021.

The partners have been exploring hemp cultivation and cannabinoid extraction opportunities in the U.S. Pacific Northwest for more than a year. The State of Oregon was chosen for this project due to climate considerations, the current regulatory environment in the State and availability of local experienced personnel.

Donald Steinberg, MCOA CEO said, "We are pleased to see the completion of the first phase of the greenhouse facilities. Once the security system is in place, we are confident the site will pass final inspection allowing our tenant-growers to occupy the facility and begin operations. MCOA continues to explore opportunities to replicate this business model and expand our real estate portfolio."

The joint venture will lease the turnkey property to a licensed tenant, thereby acting solely as a landlord. As a turnkey landlord, the joint venture aims to provide an ideal cultivation environment for its future tenant, and it is anticipated that greenhouse will be completed by the beginning of Q3 2018. The completed 30,000 square foot cultivation facility will have a capacity of approximately 4,000 plants.

Marijuana Company of America (MCOA) and Global Hemp Group (GHG) are launching agricultural hemp trials in northeast New Brunswick.

These trials are part of the first of three phases in implementing the Company’s Hemp Agro-Industrial Zone (HAIZ). The project focuses on the development of an industrial cluster around the hemp crop, which will ensure a market for farmers, year-round manufacturing job opportunities for the region, and a model for the Company to attract and develop additional HAIZ projects in other regions as well as provide a consistent potential revenue stream for both the MCOA and GHG shareholders.
