VANCOUVER, Dec. 26, 2019 /CNW/ - Emerging leader in infused cannabis beverages, BevCanna Enterprises Inc. (CSE:BEV, Q:BVNNF, FSE:7BC) ("BevCanna" or the "Company"), announced today that is has increased the size of its outdoor cannabis cultivation site to 292 acres, up from the originally announced 130 acre site.

"The increased capacity will position BevCanna well to become a leader in the production of high-quality, next-generation products, in the lead-up to Canada's commercialization of such products in 2020."
In conjunction with the additional cultivation capacity, BevCanna has completed a debt settlement with cultivation partner Clearwater CannGrow, in the amount of $500,000, in exchange for the issuance of 1,000,000 common shares (each, a "Share") at a deemed price of $0.50 per Share.
