On September 5, 2017, MCOA and GHG announced their joint venture to develop commercial hemp production on the Acadian peninsula of New Brunswick, Canada.
In this first phase of GHG and MCOA’s (the “Partners”) multi-phase hemp project in northeast New Brunswick (NB), the Partners have successfully cultivated industrial hemp during the 2017 growing season (see Phase One Hemp Trial Results below PDF). For this phase of the project, the Partners only grew hemp for research purposes, as this was the first time in 20 years that industrial hemp was grown in the region.
The objective of phase one was to re-introduce hemp into the area, and ensure that it could be productive under New Brunswick growing conditions prior to significantly increasing cultivation acreage and building a hemp processing facility in the region, in future phases of the project.
