VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / October 28, 2019 / GLOBAL HEMP GROUP INC. (“GHG” or the “Company”) (GHG.CN)(OTC PINK:GBHPF) (GHG.CN) is pleased to announce that harvest at its joint venture hemp farm in Scio, Oregon is now complete.
Harvesting began in early October and is now 100% complete. As with many areas of Oregon this year, Scio also experienced some weather challenges during the end of the growing season prior to harvest. Ultimately periods of dry weather extended long enough into October to have a successful harvest.
The last batch of hemp plants harvested have just competed the drying process. All biomass from the 2019 harvest will be ready for sale and/or further processing in the coming week. As drying and shucking are completed, the biomass will be weighed and prepared for storage before processing and/or sale.
This year genetics used at the farm were of vastly superior quality as compared to last year. The most recent independent test results of the current harvest was 18.48% Total CBD and compliant with non-detectable Delta 9 THC. Not only was there a 50% increase in CBD content over the previous year’s harvest, there were virtually no males found in the field through the entire growing season. These improved genetics have produced higher quality trimmable flower that is being separated from the general biomass that will be processed into CBD crude oil. Trimmable flower prices are currently selling for upwards of $250 per pound, whereas biomass for extraction last season was priced at $30 to $40 per pound depending on quality.
The Company has expanded growing operations to include year-round production from its greenhouses. The first greenhouse (approx. 3,000 sq ft) is on track for harvest in January. Expansion into the adjacent greenhouses, will occur over the next 30 days. Drying flower in the larger greenhouses is complete and cultivation will soon expand into all of the greenhouses on the farm. An additional 4,000 sq ft greenhouse will be constructed in Q1 2020 to increase the available indoor growing area. Management is currently evaluating additional greenhouse expansion plans in order to generate a year-round revenue stream for the Company.
