Mountain High Acquisitions Corp. : Pivots its Focus to Hemp Industry, Signs Binding Letter of Intent with California-based CBD company
Jan 8, 2020
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Jan. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- MOUNTAIN HIGH ACQUISITIONS CORP. (OTCQB: MYHI), announces it has signed a binding letter of intent to acquire GPS Associates, LLC a California based company engaged in the formulation, manufacture and sale of CBD products under the retail brand name "Zen Drops" and to its white label customers. Closing of the acquisition is subject to due diligence, MYHI Board approval, and completion of definitive agreements—all of which are expected to occur within the next 45 days. "Now is the time to be focused on the Hemp space," said MYHI CEO Alan Smith. "In the past 12 months we have seen several key indicators that have compelled us to pivot from our previous focus on providing resources to licensed operators in the cannabis space to operating directly in the hemp industry." "With the 2018 Farm Bill hemp became a legal agricultural commodity in the U.S. In the last quarter of 2019, the Department of Agriculture released its guidelines for regulating this new crop and shortly thereafter banking restrictions on hemp companies were eased by federal and state banking regulators. All of this momentum, combined with the tremendous market interest in hemp-derived CBD globally, makes us confident that this is the right decision for MYHI. We're now positioning the company to pursue current opportunities in the hemp industry while remaining poised for coming opportunities in a future federally-legal cannabis industry."
