Next Green Wave (CSE:NGW, OTCQX:NXGWF) (“Next Green Wave”, “NGW” or the “Company”) announces that it has applied for five annual licenses related to conducting commercial cultivation activities in California. These license applications are presently under review by the California Department of Food and Agriculture (“CDFA”). The Company held temporary licenses to cultivate based on the legislative scheme implemented in 2018 (providing for temporary licenses with annual license requirements to follow in 2019), which have since expired. The industry is currently facing a challenge due to the backlog and processing of these applications as temporary licenses expire.

A California legislative bill is currently underway to extend the temporary licenses so law-abiding companies aren’t unduly penalized. According to the CDFA communications manager Rebecca Foree, “Businesses with a temporary license that have submitted an annual application are not an enforcement priority for CDFA.” (source: Marijuana Business Daily, February 27, 2019)


Next Green Wave has its local licenses in place to conduct cultivation activities, and anticipates that the state licenses will be issued shortly. The Company’s distribution license has been extended to July 25, 2019.
