We are adamant about being completely transparent, as one of the leaders in this public sector, so we wanted to extend the opportunity for our shareholders to actually come out and see and experience what we are doing first-hand and what we are all about," said Perlowin.

Market leaders in the industry this week include:

Rocky Mountain High Brands, Inc. (OTCQB: RMHB) closed up over 7% on Wednesday trading over 4.6 Million shares by the market close. Rocky Mountain High Brands is a consumer goods company specializing in brand development of health conscious, hemp-infused food and beverage products. The Company currently markets a lineup of four naturally flavored hemp-infused beverages (Citrus Energy, Black Tea, Mango Energy and Lemonade) and a low-calorie Coconut Lime Energy drink. Rocky Mountain High Brands also offers hemp-infused 2oz. Mango Energy Shots and Mixed Berry Energy Shots. The recently announced that its Board of Directors approved an increase in the authorized common stock to 4,000,000,000 shares. The increase in authorized stock will be effective 20 days after mailing to shareholders an information statement Schedule 14C.

Marijuana Company of America, Inc. (OTC: MCOA) closed up slightly on Wednesday trading over 2.5 Million shares by the market close. Marijuana Company of America, in conjunction with its joint venture partner, Global Hemp Group, Inc. (CSE: GHG) (FRANKFURT: GHG) (OTC PINK: GBHPF), is pleased to provide an update on the hemp cultivation trials conducted in New Brunswick, Canada. The field portion of this first-year trial is now complete, with results from laboratory analysis of CBD concentrations of the flowers and leaves expected within the next two to four weeks. For this initial growing season:

- Two farmers were contracted in northeast New Brunswick to participate in the trial

- Three varieties of hemp were grown on Test Plot 1 (CFX1, CFX2 & CRS1)

- Two varieties of hemp were on Test Plot 2 (CFX1 & CFX2)

- Three planting densities were utilized (15, 30 & 50 kg/ha)

- Straw yields ranged from 1.10 to 2.47 tons/ha

- Flower production ranged from 0.79 to 1.69 tons/ha

These results confirm what was seen from casual observation. This year's yields are somewhat lower than expected, due to the late planting and incomplete field preparation (both which will be rectified for the 2018 cultivation), and lack of rainfall in the spring. In 2018, taller varieties of hemp will be grown to increase straw yields and flowers. For the 2017 trial, the CRS1 outperformed the other varieties in straw production, and CFX2 produced the best flower yields. These results are indicative of the performance of varieties under largely unfavorable conditions.

GreenGro Technologies, Inc. (OTC: GRNH) closed up slightly on Wednesday trading over 2.3 Million shares by the market close. GreenGro Technologies, a world-class provider of eco-friendly green technologies, this week announced that it has completed the buildout of its flagship igot420-branded marijuana dispensary and grow, located in North Hollywood, California, on-time, within budget and in advance of its expected grand opening, scheduled for mid-October 2017. The grand opening of the Company's flagship igot420 dispensary will also represent a new revenue stream for the Company consisting of leases and management contracts. Additional details of the North Hollywood flagship igot420 dispensary will be disclosed by its new tenants, the owners and operators of the igot420 brand, over the next several weeks.

mCig, Inc. (OTCQB: MCIG) closed up slightly on Wednesday trading just under 2 Million shares by the market close. mCig Inc., a diversified company servicing the legal cannabis, hemp, and CBD markets, is pleased to announce that it is concluding efforts to raise up to $3 million under a private placement to qualified accredited investors for the expansion of its operations.
