Weekend Unlimited Strengthens Cash Position Through Sale of Property in Washington, Redirects Capital from Northern Lights Organics to Oklahoma Operations, and Responds to OTC Inquiry
Sale of Property in Washington
Weekend is pleased to announce it has strengthened its cash position through the sale of its facility and equipment in Wenatchee, Washington. The transaction was for a total of USD$400,000, with USD$300,000 paid at the completion of the property transfer and the remaining USD$100,000 distributed over 12 consecutive monthly payments commencing in January of 2021.
Weekend purchased this facility in 2018 and from that date it has not served in any active operations for the company. The purchasers will rent the facility to licensed cannabis producers who will formulate Weekend Unlimited Products once the transfer application has been approved to this new address.
“The sale of our Washington facility comes at the right time when this capital can be used to further develop our growing operations in Oklahoma,” said Chris Backus, President and CEO. “The deal we’ve made still allows WKND! brands to have a footprint in Washington. We believe this is the best decision to continue to grow Weekend as a revenue generating company for our investors.”
Reallocation of Capital from Northern Lights Organics to Oklahoma
Weekend’s Executives and Board of Directors have unanimously decided to redirect the 2020 operational budget from Northern Lights Organics to our revenue generating Oklahoma operations.
With a recent surge of biomass production and decrease in biomass price in the Canadian hemp industry, Weekend determined the risk of further pursuing Northern Lights Organics operations this year was not in the best interest of the company and its investors.
The business model to plant, harvest, dry, and transport hemp from 40 acres was projected to exceed Cdn$350,000 while wholesale cost of distillate has significantly decreased as volume floods the market making Weekend’s profitability uncertain.
Additionally, the operational plans to dry harvested biomass called for several employees to work in small enclosed greenhouses with industrial sized dryers circulating air which would be contrary to safe and recommended COVID-19 prevention measures.
“Weekend’s management team strongly believe this is the most strategic decision we could make at this time.” stated Chris Backus, President and CEO. “WKND! And Orchard Heights Cannabis brands are growing dramatically in Oklahoma and we believe our efforts and capital are best allocated to a proven business model that is earning Weekend growing and consistent profits. This decision is a strong positive for the company and we are very excited and optimistic about our growing footprint in Oklahoma.”
“Strengthening our cash position, and re-allocating capital to Oklahoma, could not come at a better time given our recently announced letter of intent with Ruby Maes,” said CEO, Chris Backus. “We are simply making a methodical decision to move cash from a crop commodity asset with several uncertain factors, and place it into Oklahoma operations which is proven by its month-over-month revenue growth to have less risk and more upside”.
Response to OTC Inquiry
Weekend Unlimited provides the following information about its marketing and promotional activities (“Marketing Activities”) at the request of OTC Markets.
On June 22nd, 2020 the Company engaged Emerging Markets Consulting LLC on June 22nd, to assist with promotional marketing to raise the Company profile among investors and email campaigns. Emerging markets wrote an article that made reference to the Company’s previously reported revenue increases and offered additional non-Weekend focused macro projections of the cannabis industry. Specifically, the company confirms that the disclosed revenue numbers in the Emerging Markets article are neither false nor materially misleading and that such statements were accurate and correspond to the Company’s press release issued on June 15th, 2020 which was approved by the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC). With respect to Emerging Market’s overall Cannabis Industry projections the company has no reason to believe those are inaccurate and received assurance from Emerging Markets that such information had been subject to review by Emerging Markets legal council. Although the Emerging Market article disclosed that it was a paid advertisement by Weekend Unlimited, the company has instructed Emerging markets to more clearly identify in the future that their campaigns are paid promotional features funded by the Company and to include the full company name in the headers of all email campaigns. The company does not believe the services provided by Emerging Markets had a direct and significant impact on trading activity on the OTC Company’s stock or the market price thereof. Any increase on trading activity is most likely attributable to the company’s recent and publicly disclosed financial results.
The Company’s management, led by the Company’s CEO, has overseen all Marketing Activities respecting the Company. Since listing on the OTCQB the Company believes it has complied with the OTC Markets Group policies on stock promotion. The Company has been successful in achieving operational milestones for its business, and since completing its initial public offering, it has issued many press releases disclosing these achievements.

The Company also confirms there is no purchases of the Company’s stock by Third Party Providers over the past 90 days.

The Company believes that all of its Third Party Providers provide valuable services and contribute to the successful marketing of the Company and its products and services. The Company endeavours to work with the Third Party Providers to ensure all disclosures are made in accordance with OTC Markets’ policies and guidelines on marketing. The Company intends to continue engaging some or all of the Third Party Providers on an ongoing basis.
The Company’s management has been directly involved in engaging and working with the Third Party Providers undertaking Marketing Activities on the Company’s behalf. Approved content is sometimes displayed on media properties owned by companies that do not have a direct relationship with the Company but have been selected by or through Third Party Providers.

With a combined population of 1.633 billion people, or 21 percent of the world’s citizenry, the three countries signify a substantial opportunity for BevCanna. The markets’ growing and prosperous middle-class consumer base represents an ideal demographic for the TRACE products, as consumers increasingly opt for healthier lifestyle choices. The global nutraceutical market size is projected to reach US$722.49 billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 8.3% over the forecast period; Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period, particularly in Japan and China. 1 The Japanese market is particularly suited for the introduction of the TRACE brand, with its consumers having developed a decided preference for natural, health-conscious products. Two-thirds of Asian consumers believe in superfoods and natural health products for treating ailments 2 , representing a prime demographic for wellness-focused products.
“The Asian market is a natural fit for our TRACE line of plant-based and alkaline products,” said Melise Panetta, President of BevCanna. “We’ve been actively evaluating the market potential, while also fielding increased interest from Asian customers and partners in our TRACE plant-based mineral products and our Canadian natural alkaline spring water. Our portfolio of products will address a growing demand for nutraceuticals and wellness-focused natural products, and we’re pleased to announce our anticipated expansion into these significant markets”.
TRACE’s proprietary plant-based mineralized beverages and nutraceuticals contain fulvic and humic minerals, sourced from ancient organic compounds that are highly concentrated sources of trace minerals. Recognized benefits of the Health Canada-approved formulations include cognitive performance, gut health, immune function, and aiding the body in metabolizing carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Mineral-enhanced water is increasingly popular in Asia for its purported benefits to human immune systems and brain health.
TRACE’s proprietary alkaline spring water is bottled at source in British Columbia’s Okanagan region. The alkaline water provides additional benefits to the consumer as compared to most tap and conventional bottled water, including the increased presence of hydroxyl ions, increased hydration, improved bone health, healthier skin and decreased gastrointestinal symptoms.
