Vancouver, BC / TheNewswire / May 17, 2019 -- GLOBAL HEMP GROUP INC. ("GHG" or the "Company") (CSE: GHG / OTC: GBHPF / FRANKFURT: GHG) is very pleased to announce that its subsidiary, Covered Bridge Acres Ltd. (CBA), has entered into a contract with Richardson Gap Farm LLC (RGF) to extract cannabinoids from all of the hemp biomass produced at the Company's Scio Oregon hemp farm. CBA is the operating company for the project, a 50/50 joint venture with Marijuana Company of America, Inc. (OTCQB: MCOA).

The contract with RGF will process the biomass into CBD distillate. The output would then be split on a 55/45 basis, with 55% going to CBA. Based on the results from a recent test run by RGF, CBA's 55% share of the distillate produced is expected to be 400 to 500 kg. CBA is currently selling distillate produced from earlier test extraction runs for US$4000 - US$5,000 per kg. The initial supply of biomass has been delivered to RGF and processing is expected to begin within the next 2-4 days.

In addition, RGF is currently converting 16 kg of CDB crude oil produced from the various test runs with other processors to distillate, on a 20% tolling basis. The final product is expected to be delivered to CBA earlier next week.



Much of the confusion stems from the various laws and regulations concerning such products in Ireland. Under EU regulations plants containing CBD may be grown as long at their THC content (the psychoactive component) is less than 0.2 per cent. The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) even subsidises production in some countries.

In Ireland cannabis or hemp may be grown as a food product under the same conditions. However under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1977 all derivatives of cannabis and hemp containing THC are illegal, even if they contain only trace amounts.

The Department of Health says it hopes to amend the legislation to explicitly permit CBD products like those seized in recent weeks.

“Since hemp is still part of the Category 5 narcotics list, because it contains a high volume of cannabidiol [CBD], we cannot let farmers grow hemp as yet. However, once the three-year trial is completed by the end of next year, we will reconsider allowing private firms to grow hemp as a cash crop,” Niyom said.

"Seed to shelf is the way we like to think of it," said Fowlkes. Blühen's one-of-a-kind hemp cafe sells their hemp and CBD products, including capsules, sprays, vapes, pre-rolled hemp flower, and dried hemp flower. A cafe serves hemp infused foods and drinks, or you can add a boost of just CBD. A meeting space in the back is for concerts, yoga classes and other events. It's all happening under the lights of the indoor hemp farm.


MISSOULA – A company that specializes in making hemp products is joining forces with a Missoula business to create jobs and grow its business. The Socati Corporation announced earlier this week that it acquired Blue Marble Biomaterialsand will use its staff of scientists to make hemp oils and extracts. Socati is known as a leading processor of broad-spectrum hemp extracts like CBD oil.

Socati is the most advanced producer of THC-free broad spectrum hemp extract. We combine expertise in seed genetics, proprietary extraction techniques and the most efficient purification systems available today to support the production of CBD infused products at global manufacturing scale. By integrating the entire supply chain, Socati is your partner in delivering to one of the most lucrative new product categories in history - non-psychoactive cannabinoid infusion.
