January 17, 2019 – Vancouver, BC – Alliance Growers Corp. (CSE: ACG; FWB: 1LA; WKN: A2DFYX; OTCQB: ALGWF) (“Alliance Growers” or “the Company”) is pleased to report the Company is extremely well positioned to capitalize on the growing CBD market in Canada’s hemp industry by having access to and sharing in the profits of the proprietary CBD Dana strain. The production of hemp, a form of cannabis with THC levels below 0.3%, conjunctively increased the U.S. and the Canadian market size for “CBD Dana” hemp tissue culture plantlets.
“Canadians will benefit by virtue of there being a bigger pie and we will continue to compete. I’m sure we can with our 20 years of experience,” said Russ Crawford, president of the Canadian Hemp Trade Alliance, adding the U.S. farm bill has legitimized hemp around the world. Crawford said Hempco Canada is about to commission its large hemp facility near Leduc, Alta. There have been other companies looking to build food processing and cannabinoid extraction facilities in Canada, he added.
Commenting on Alliance Growers position to capitalize on the growing CBD market in Canada, Dennis Petke, Alliance Growers President and CEO stated, “Alliance is very fortunate to have developed a close strategic relationship with Pharmagreen such that the Company will be able to enjoy significant profits from selling the much sought after superior CBD Dana plantlets worldwide as well as high profit margins from joint venture commercial hemp operations with Canadian hemp farmers.”
Alliance Growers has secured access to the proprietary CBD strain named CBD Dana, a product used in the treatment of multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, potent inhibitor of cancer cell proliferation, metastasis, and tumor growth as well as other symptoms.
The unique strain has been tested for a content of at least 10 percent CBD (and as high as 14% CBD) and less than 0.3 percent THC. This CBD yield is substantially greater than traditional hemp strains which typically have at most a 1 percent content. The lower THC content allows the strain to be classified as “industrial hemp” which makes it ideal for cultivation with less restrictive regulation.
The female plantlets produced in the tissue culture lab at the Cannabis Biotech Complex will be available for hemp farmers on a global scale. Providing hemp farmers with all female, fully rooted plantlets of the strain will provide a significant yield in CBD production for hemp farmers.
