WINCHESTER MD SIGNS JV TO CULTIVATE INDUSTRIAL HEMP IN RONDA, SPAIN AND ACQUIRES 1.6 Million EU REGISTERED SEEDS

 

LONDON, UK, May 9, 2019 - WINCHESTER MD LIMITED ("Winchester" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that on April 30, 2019, the Company signed a joint venture agreement ("JV")  with a land owner in Ronda, Spain for the purpose of cultivating industrial hemp ("Cultivation Property"). In addition, the Company has purchased 1.6 million European Union registered hemp seeds for 2019 hemp cultivation on the Cultivation Property as well as for sale on the retail CBD superstore operated by Winchester MD (www.hempelf.com). The Company's agreement with the land owner is to invest in all farming costs including but not limited to seeds, labour, irrigation, and cultivation in exchange for 80% of the economics from the JV. 

 

Faz Moshfeghi, CEO of Winchester MD, commented, "The cultivation plot comprises of 20 hectares of irrigated farming land currently growing oats in the south of Spain. We have started to revamp the irrigation system to supply water across the land from the existing underground freshwater wells situated on the property. Our seeds will be germinated indoors using a nearby greenhouse to ensure a high germination rate. We expect to have the seedlings in the ground within the next 3 weeks and have engaged a local labour agency who will manage the hiring and payroll of our workforce for the project. This is the first biomass crop for Winchester and we are already having discussions with a European extraction partners in order to extract our biomass and produce CBD Isolate, which is expected by October 2019. Based on historic data for the performance of the EU-registered seeds and the experience of our farmers, we anticipate cultivating approximately 100,000 kilograms of hemp biomass in 2019 from the Cultivation Property. We are also expecting to extract 3,000 to 4,000 kilograms of CBD isolate, which at the current average price per kilogram, would yield gross sales in the range of €18 million to €24 million."
