Red White & Bloom to Acquire 3.6 Million Square Foot Illinois Greenhouse Operation for Premium Hemp Production
VAUGHAN, Ontario, May 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MichiCann Medical Inc., operating as Red White & Bloom (“RWB” or the “Company”), has signed an LOI to acquire the world’s largest indoor premium hemp facility, located in Granville, Illinois. In operation since 1978, the greenhouse has been granted its Hemp Grower License and Hemp Processor Registration from the Illinois Department of Agriculture.
According to the Brightfield Group: “CBD is growing faster than cannabis in the U.S. and the hemp-CBD market alone could hit $22 billion by 2022. It’s been flying under the radar but is set to explode, having profound impacts on CPG and Pharma.”
Anchored by the Illinois facility, RWB intends to establish large-scale production capabilities focused on hemp extraction and product manufacturing within the United States. Management’s experience in creating the first standardized cannabis production facility in Canada will allow it to establish this state-of-the-art Illinois facility as the bellwether for standardization of premium hemp CBD, and CBD-derived medicines and products.

- Over 231 acres of land
- 175 fulltime employees with over 400 workers at peak season

“We continue with our plan to rapidly expand from our base in Michigan and invest in scaled operations across the United States as we bring together additional components of our Multi State Operator strategy,” stated RWB CEO Brad Rogers. “We have been making investments in IP, formulations and brands as well as finalizing terms on a number of other transactions for our CPG rollout later in 2019. We believe these efforts will allow us to expand our presence expeditiously and help position the Company to be one of the largest national players in the rapidly expanding U.S. cannabis market.”
