Vancouver, BC — (August 23, 2021) — GLOBAL HEMP GROUP INC. (“GHG” or the “Company”) (CSE: GHG / OTCQB: GBHPF / FRANKFURT: GHG) announces that in accordance with targeted objectives for the HEMP AGRO-INDUSTRIAL ZONE (HAIZ) project, a third acquisition contract for 664 acres of contiguous land is now fully executed. This brings the current total land assemblage to 874+ strategic acres closed or under definitive contract by the Company for development of the HAIZ project in the northwestern Colorado town of Hayden.The Company’s first acquisition was the 44+ acre annexed and zoned industrial/commercial site (see the Company’s news release of May 10 for further details) as the home for a centralized processing/manufacturing center at its Hemp Agro-Industrial Zone (HAIZ) closed on June 15, 2021. The Company’s second acquisition was a 166+ acre annexed property for development of affordable housing, now under “hard” contract pending closing. This third contract encompassing 664 acres of the total 874-acre assemblage will expand GHG’s available hemp farming acreage in the near term and will provide for the phased construction of affordable homes in the context of a Planned Unit Development (PUD) subject to approval by the Town of Hayden. This 664-acre property is contiguous to the 166 acre annexed land parcel (see the Company’s news release of May 17 for further details), making 830 acres available for the development of affordable homes over the Company’s 20+ year development horizon for the project.In collaboration with Western Sierra Resource Corporation (OTC:WSRC) this “vertically integrated” project contemplates the beneficial use of substantial existing water resources to irrigate and cultivate industrial hemp; process and utilize hemp in the on-site manufacturing of green renewable construction products; and finally, to build affordable carbon neutral/carbon negative housing – all in one location under the Company’s master plan. The Company’s vision for the Hemp Agro-Industrial Zone complex on the first 44-acre site recently acquired, is to establish a “showcase” venue for its vendor/partners in agriculture, research and development, light manufacturing, a range of related commercial products and green technologies, and housing – all of which is designed to compliment the town of Hayden by further generating employment opportunity and increasing business revenue for the community.Earnest money in the amount of US$200,000 will be deposited to the title company on or before August 31, 2021. Subject to completion of acceptable due diligence on or before September 30, 2021, the earnest money will become non-refundable, and the purchase will be scheduled for closing, with final payments for the property payable on or before April 1, 2022.Land Planning and Engineering Firms have been engaged by the Company which are now finalizing plans for a large-scale warehouse, decortication facility, manufacturing facility, showroom with administrative offices, and model homes.
