Next Green Wave Holdings Inc. (CSE:NGW, OTCQX:NXGWF) (“Next Green Wave”, “NGW” or the “Company”) announces that it has successfully completed its first premium cannabis flower harvest and hit all major milestones to become fully operational this month. All 14 flower rooms have now been stocked with plants, 6 of which are in the flowering stage nearing harvest. This future output will allow the Company to execute on its four revenue segments; nursery, cultivation, extraction and product distribution.

The Company’s first harvest has passed strict California category three compliance testing and received a Certificate of Analysis (COA)* free of any microbial, mycotoxins, pesticides, heavy metals and foreign materials. All the strains tested met premium quality industry standards for sale in California. The lack of licensed premium flower for sale in California opens the door for producers to take advantage of the underserved market.


Highlights:

  • First premium cannabis harvest is ready for sale
  • All 14 flowering rooms are stocked
  • 6 rooms are in the flowering stage (approx. 70 days from flowering to harvest)
  • Multiple rooms will be ready for harvest in September 2019
  • Several dispensaries and wholesalers are awaiting NGW product
  • All Company operations at Facility A fully licensed**

The Company’s next yield is expected in the coming weeks and will be processed for sale and distribution through the Company’s SDC Branding House (WEARESDC) and partner brands; Loki the Wolf Dog, Carey Hart, King Louie, Sketchy Tank, Junkyard LA, Toy Machine Skateboard, OSS, Thorn St. Brewing and No Jumper.

“This is a significant turning point for the company. The NGW team has worked steadfast to get the facility built, operating and into revenue, and bring our premium products and brands to market as quickly as possible, kickstarting the beginning of our evolution. We are appreciative of our supportive stakeholders and we look forward to a strong future – one in which we are confident will be rewarding.” -stated Mike Jennings, CEO.
