Organigram locks up supply of hemp-derived CBD through long-term agreement with industrial hemp research company

Organigram Holdings Inc. (TSX VENTURE: OGI) (OTCQX: OGRMF), the parent company of Organigram Inc. (the “Company” or “Organigram”), a leading licensed producer of cannabis, is pleased to announce the Company has entered into an agreement with 1812 Hemp, a New Brunswick based industrial hemp research company to secure supply and support research and development on the genetic improvement of hemp through traditional plant breeding methods. 1812 Hemp is focused on further developing a line of Canadian cultivars (specific varieties of plants cultivated to enhance desirable qualities) of high cannabidiol (CBD) yielding hemp for the Canadian climate.

Under the terms of the agreement, Organigram will have access to a secure supply of hemp flower which contains significant levels of cannabidiol (CBD cultivars ranging from 4% to 8%). CBD is a naturally occurring active ingredient in hemp and cannabis that is currently being studied for various therapeutic uses.

“Maximizing the CBD yield of hemp and cannabis means being able to meet increasing consumer demand for CBD while reducing overall production costs,” explains Greg Engel, CEO Organigram. “We are proud to work with other industry-leading companies and researchers to continue to explore the potential of hemp and cannabis plants and the efficiency with which we can deliver CBD to our customers.”

The recent legalization of cannabis in Canada has meant an increased need for agriculture technologies and plant breeding research to support both the indoor and outdoor growing of cannabis and industrial hemp. 1812 Hemp is excited to leverage the considerable research capacity and the substantial experience in variety and cultivar crop development in New Brunswick as it launches its industrial hemp breeding program for the development of new and improved cultivars to support the national and global demand for high value hemp genetics.

“We see the future CBD market in Canada and beyond to be an incredible opportunity” explains Engel. “CBD infused products will only grow in both medical and adult recreational channels, and we are focused on establishing the right relationships and processes now to fully take advantage of that opportunity”.

Access to Hemp

As part of the deal Organigram has access to approximately 6,000 kg of dried hemp flower harvested in the fall of 2018 which it intends to purchase and begin to send for extraction within the first calendar quarter of 2019.

In addition, Organigram has a right-of-first refusal on future procurement of hemp from 1812 Hemp which is expected to increase significantly in 2019 and beyond.

The Canary Islands Create a Video to Replace Blue Monday With True Monday

The Canary Islands create a video to replace Blue Monday with True Monday (The Canary Islands)
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The international #TrueMonday campaign is being launched from the Canary Islands to advertise this initiative

For years the Canary Islands has been battling Blue Monday, a fake news story that claims that this is the saddest day of the year. As part of its effort to get back and stand up for good vibes, the Canary Islands want to turn this non-existent event into a day to combat fake news.

The goal is to kill off Blue Monday once and for all and turn it into True Monday. To do so, the Canary Islands have created an informative video with messages as blunt as “Don’t let any comments, any news, any made-up formula manipulate your feelings. It’s time for us all to start improving the climate”.

In addition, in coming months, officials in the Canary Islands will work to turn the third Monday in January into the International Day Against Fake News, a day to combat all the lies and untruths that sow tension, discord and bad vibes.

The stopbluemonday.com website describes this commitment through a manifesto and includes tips for identifying fake news, measures for getting back the good vibes and a quiz so users can check their knowledge.

Goodbye Blue Monday, hello True Monday

In 2005, using a completely made-up formula, Professor Cliff Arnall, from Cardiff University (United Kingdom), declared that the third Monday in January was the year’s saddest day. This initiative was part of an advertising campaign for a travel agency.

Even though its credibility was called into question from day one, to the point that even Cardiff University called it “a farce”, the media, including social media, continued to spread the news year after year.

The Canary Islands managed to get none other than Professor Arnall himself to publicly disavow his Blue Monday creation and join the #StopBlueMonday movement. “It’s time to finally stop letting made-up comments, news or formulas manipulate our feelings and for everyone to start improving the climate”, said the professor.

In short, the goal of the initiative is to remove the day devoted to sadness from the calendar once and for all and, in its place, to raise society’s awareness of the fight against the type of fake news that created it.

To celebrate the school choice, diversity, and culture in the Brooklyn community, education leaders are going to join together. The event will include speakers and presenters, as well as workshops for the children, including African drumming and an International Children’s Film Festival. The event will feature more than 40,000 school choice events across all 50 states.

“School is more than a place where you go to learn academics. Our school is a community that honors the special talents of each individual – one where we learn to work together to form a global perspective surrounded by values of social justice, service, and faith. Because our families are able to choose to participate in a values-based education here at the academy, we are able to nurture the growth of active, global citizens who are prepared to enter college, career, and beyond with intellectual vigor and a strong moral compass,” said Manuela Adsuar-Pizzi, principal of St. Francis Xavier – Queen of All Saints Catholic Academy.
