Cannabis Stock News: WeedMD (TSX-V: $WMD.V) (OTCQX: $WDDMF) Completes Planting Cannabis on its 27-Acre Outdoor Field and Provides Operational Update on CX Industries

Kicks-off second-year outdoors with over 18,000 plants slated for fall harvest, confirms 2019 outdoor biomass now in extraction for new cannabis formats at CX Industries

 

TORONTO - June 12, 2020 (Investorideas.com Newswire) WeedMD Inc. (TSX-V:WMD) (OTCQX:WDDMF) (FSE:4WE) ("WeedMD" or the "Company"), a federally-licensed producer and distributor of medical-grade cannabis, announced today it completed planting more than 18,000 fully-rooted cannabis plants at its 27-acre outdoor field located adjacent to its modern greenhouse in Strathroy, Ontario. As one of only a handful of licensed-producers entering its second year of outdoor operations, WeedMD also confirmed that its CX Industries extraction hub in Aylmer is now fully operational and extracting cannabinoid-rich, indoor and outdoor-harvested biomass into new cannabis formats.

The Company is producing vapourization ("vape") cartridges for initial launch this month to WeedMD and Starseed's medical channels. Additional details will be released about the vape product during its launch week, June 22, 2020. The new products will expand into the adult-use markets by Q3 2020 under WeedMD's Color Cannabis brand.

"The ability to effectively cultivate cannabis outdoors optimizes our yields for cost-efficient production to develop products with greater commercial sales value," said Angelo Tsebelis, CEO of WeedMD. "Over the past few months, our cultivation team has made significant headway in boosting outdoor efficiencies, selecting seven optimal outdoor strains and propagating over 18,000 cannabis clones now fully rooted and planted. Additionally, with the ramp up of CX Industries, we are now commercializing our extraction-grade, cannabinoid-rich biomass harvested indoors and outdoors into new cannabis formats starting with vapes to meet our production targets."

CX Industries Inc. ("CX Industries" or "CX") is a WeedMD business unit specializing in extraction, toll processing and third-party product formulation from its fully-licensed Aylmer site. With plans to process over 50,000 kgs of biomass annually at peak production, CX offers tolling and white labelling services to other LPs and brands. Two Vitalis Q90 extractors commissioned in late 2019 moved CX Industries into commercial operation in 2020.
