May 14, 2019  By Grow Opportunity Staff

Vancouver cannabis company, Weekend Unlimited, announced that it is advancing toward full-scale production on its 600-acre Northern Lights Organics hemp farm in northern B.C.

“We were very pleased with the results as the hemp grew well even under colder than normal winter conditions. We are in the final seed maturing stage and harvesting will occur within the next few weeks,” said Northern Lights Organics president Art Halleran. “Based on results we have applied what we have learned to maximize seed production in our larger greenhouses. We will dedicate a portion of the harvested seeds to plant an outdoor test plot in May 2019 – all aspects of that test will be analyzed, from production through to economic standpoints.”

Nursery greenhouse highlights:

  • 3,500 plants, consisting of three high CBD hemp varieties, were planted in compliance with the Canadian Organic Regime regulations on 10 January 2019
  • These varieties were obtained from a third-party hemp breeding company and have CBD content of five per cent to 5.86 per cent dry weight and THC content substantially < 0.3 per cent
  • In the future, Northern Lights Organic will be producing its own supply of high CBD hemp seeds in order to ensure supply and scalability
