"Translating the results of this test plot in the nursery greenhouse to the larger greenhouse, which has 40 times the capacity, equates to approximately 2,000,000 seeds which is enough to plant over 600 acres,” said President Arthur Halleran.

The company planted the high-CBD hemp plants in January and harvested the seeds in May. The company had said it planted 3,500 plants with a CBD content between 5% and 5.9% of dry weight.

The vast majority of CBD (cannabidiol) is extracted from hemp, which is a cannabis plant that has trace amounts of THC (0.3% or less when dried), the psychoactive compound that gets people “high.”

Weekend Unlimited's stock recenty traded flat at C$0.05 in Toronto and down 2.4% to US$0.04 on the OTC Markets.
