VANCOUVER, June 6, 2018 /CNW/ - Friday Night Inc. (the Company or Friday Night) (CSE: TGIF) (FWB: 1QF) (OTCQB: TGIFF), a leading cannabis, hemp and CBD producer in Nevada, is pleased to announce the closing of the previously announced purchase agreement dated May 15th, 2018 on a production building in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The existing 12,160 sq. ft. building is located adjacent to the construction site that will house Alternative Medicine Association's (AMA) new cannabis cultivation facility. The newly-acquired production building will be utilized solely for production, processing and extraction and was purchased for USD $2,250,000. The Company has filed a re-zoning application with the appropriate authorities. AMA's range of products include its own line of cannabis flower and concentrates as well as recognized brands produced under licensing agreements for Vader Extracts Nevada, Krypted Inc., and Kurupts Moonrocks.
Hemp Processing Facility – The CBD Isolate Lab
The Company also announces that its new production building will house a separate hemp processing facility (the "CBD Lab") operated by its subsidiary, Infused MFG. With a monthly processing target of 6,000 lbs. /2721 kg. of hemp biomass, the CBD Lab is expected to produce 440 lbs. /200 kg of cannabidiol or CBD extracts, which will be utilized to produce full spectrum oils, distillates and isolates. With a current market range of approximately USD $5,000 - $7,000 per kg, the CBD Lab will become a significant revenue generating division for the Company in wholesale hemp derived CBD extracts. The Company anticipates that the CBD Lab will be in production in the fall of 2018, in order to process what is expected to be Nevada's largest fall harvest of industrial hemp crops.
Chris Rebentisch, President and CEO of Infused MFG commented, "The CBD Lab will allow us to cut production costs of our Canna Hemp™ product line by more than one-third and provide us with the ability to control the quality of extracts. This in turn will increase the amount of CBD used in our products without needing to raise prices." Mr. Rebentisch added, "As production of CBD in the United States increases and prices fall, having our own processing facility will better position our price points in any market conditions".
Mr. Brayden Sutton, President & CEO of Friday Night Inc. said, "The extraction market has been validated and this production building shows how serious we are about increasing our footprint with our world class products. We are also very excited about the new CBD Lab, which provides another revenue stream in a rapidly growing market and brings our own costs down."
