CALGARY, Dec. 6, 2016 /CNW/ - Maple Leaf Green World (MGW-V) ("Maple Leaf" or the "Company") announces that the Company has arranged a non-brokered private placement of convertible debentures (the "Debentures") for an aggregate principal amount of up to CAD $2 million with a leading capital fund company based in Toronto, as lead subscriber.

Subject to the completion of the offering, the lead subscriber has the right to participate for up to CAD $3 million of any future offering of debt, equity or equity-based securities of the Company for a period of twelve (12) months from the closing of the offering.

The Debentures and any common shares issuable upon conversion or exercise thereof, as applicable, will be subject to a statutory hold period lasting four months and one day following the closing of the offering.

The company intends to use the net proceeds of the private placement for its Las Vegas and San Diego cannabis projects and for general corporate purposes. The private placement is subject to certain other conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all stock exchange and other necessary regulatory approvals.

New Co-Chief Grower – Las Vegas Project
Further to the Company's November 29th press release, the management is very pleased to welcome Mr. Matt Bubba Berger, a long time partner with Mr. Paul Holbert to join us as Co- Chief Grower for the Company's Las Vegas project. He has been cultivating cannabis for over 25 years, developing genetics, gathering awards, and starting cannabusinesses along the way. He co-founded, with Paul Holbert, one of the first dispensaries in Denver, Colorado, the original Cannaseur Dispensary, and has built, managed and operated several cannabis cultivation facilities. He is one of the five "godfathers of the Kush" when they discovered and named the original Kush in 1992, which Matt took to LA and made the strain what it is today, which has become known as OG Kush and also the 92 OG. The OG Kush is the strain that High Times Magazine named the "#1 Cannabis Strain of All Time". Bubba also created Bubba Kush in 1997. Between the OG Kush and the Bubba Kush, those two lineages account for as much as 70% of the genetics available in North America today.
