Industry News

Hemptown Organics Corp. is a multi-state hemp operation doing business as Hemptown USA, announces the completion of a CAD $23,240,000 round of financing, which closed May 10, 2019. Canaccord Genuity Corp. acted as lead agent on the brokered portion of the financing on behalf of a syndicate of dealers that included Sprott Capital Partners LP, Beacon Securities Ltd., and PI Financial Corp. In concert with existing revenue and capital, the financing enables Hemptown USA to embark on a multi-state expansion; purchase USD$5.5 million worth of Oregon CBD (cannabidiol) seeds; begin the build-out of Hemptown USA's processing and extraction facilities and research team, and initiate planting and harvesting of Hemptown USA's 2019 crop of feminized hemp seeds.

With this capital infusion, Hemptown USA is endeavoring to become a formidable multi-state operation within the rapidly growing hemp industry. As a byproduct of growing high-grade feminized hemp, Hemptown USA is proposing to processes full spectrum CBD and CBG crude and distillates, achieving higher yields versus industrial hemp. Hemptown USA’s competitive advantages include, but are not limited to: “Successful companies in this sector will be those with the ability to build a scalable, vertically integrated multi-state company,” stated Rod Wolterman, founder and chairman of Hemptown USA. “We have assembled a well-respected team that has already produced some of the highest quality feminized hemp in the country here in Southern Oregon’s Emerald Triangle. The capital infusion will allow us to expand operations to Colorado, Kentucky and Northern California, ramp up processing capabilities and develop disruptive product formulations in the CPG sector. We are excited to execute on our vision and delivering sustainably-grown feminized hemp flower and biomass on a commercial scale.”
