CALGARY, Aug. 29, 2016 /CNW/ - Maple Leaf Green World (MGW-V) ("Maple Leaf" or the "Company") announces that it has started harvesting the first crop at its California facility. The first tranche, consisting of approximately 100 pounds of product, is expected to be shipped out in two weeks.  Thereafter, the Company expects there will be a tranche to ship out every two weeks until the initial harvest is finished in October. The second crop will be harvested in November in the same fashion as the first crop and this second harvest is expected to continue until December. The selling price for the first tranche is anticipated to be between US$1,400 to US$1,600 per pound. With the target buyers of Maple Leaf's product secured beforehand, a steady stream of revenue should flow to the Company from September until December this year.

In 2017, management is planning for a two month growing cycle, with the first crop expected to be harvested in March and April 2017.  In addition, Maple Leaf's management has started planning for further growth in 2017, not only by expanding its present facility, but also by seeking to acquire another property in Southern California.

The California referendum to legalize recreational marijuana will take place on November 8th .   Also on election day, four other states (Maine, Massachusetts, Arizona and Nevada) are holding referenda to legalize recreational marijuana.
