First California Crop at Flowering Stage Maple Leaf Green World Inc.

(TSX-V: MGW)

June 20, 2016$0.12

CALGARY, June 20, 2016 /CNW/ - Maple Leaf Green World (MGW-V) ("Maple Leaf" or the "Company") announces that the plants at Company's California greenhouse facility have been flourishing and most have reached 7 feet in height.  Accordingly, the  Company's greenhouse personnel have started the flowering process. This crop has four different strains and each strain has a different time frame for flowering. Harvesting is expected to take place in July after flowering, which will be followed by drying and grinding to prepare the finished products for shipment.

The size of the plants is very significant, as the bigger the plant, the higher the yield.  In addition, the demand for medical marijuana is expected to be quite high during the summer months as the usual harvest time for most producers is from September onward. As such, the selling price of the Company's product is expected to be considerably higher than the price customarily available for a later harvest.

Continued progress has been made in the effort to legalize recreational marijuana in California.  The Adult Use of Marijuana Act has received more than double the required  signatures to place the initiative on the ballot in the upcoming November elections.
