CALGARY, Alberta, Sept 1, 2020 – Maple Leaf Green World Inc. (“Maple Leaf” or the “Company”) (NEO: MGW, OTCQB: MGWFF) is pleased to provide the following update for its California CBG Hemp Project. A sample from a selective batch of La Crème from the first 2 greenhouses, which is 2 – 4 weeks from full maturity, has been submitted for lab analysis and the results indicate an incredible 13.90% CBG, 0.07% THC and no other cannabinoids detected. It is noteworthy that most samples would present traces of other cannabinoids as enzymes break down CBGa to produce other cannabinoids. The lack of these other cannabinoids indicates a pure CBG flower.
The plants have been kept longer in the vegetative stage deliberately to develop larger buds and higher poundage. The low THC nature of the La Crème strain has allowed the Company to make adjustments during the vegetative phase to maximize both CBG concentration and yield. These plants will be ready for harvesting within the next 2 – 4 weeks.
The outdoor crop is also displaying numerous large buds and is estimated to produce 2 – 3 lbs of flower per plant. The Company’s cultivation team is excited with the early results and is confident that the flowers, when fully mature, will achieve a minimum of 18% CBG. As the Company prepares for its first harvest, clones have also been cut and setup for the 2nd harvest.
The preliminary Certificate of Analysis (“COA”) has been posted to the company’s website.
“I am very impressed with the purity of our first harvest. The low THC nature of this strain gave us the flexibility to extend the length of our vegetating stage to obtain higher CBG content and larger buds without the risk of our harvest going hot. This has resulted in approximately 30-40% increase in yield. We are excited to see the final results from a fully mature flower.”Raymond Lai, Chairman, President & CEO
