Vancouver, British Columbia, May 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Future Farm Technologies Inc. (the “Company” or “Future Farm”) (CSE: FFT) (OTCQX: FFRMF) is pleased to announce that it is moving into Phase II of its ongoing efforts to be the largest hemp cultivator and CBD producer in New England.On May 10th the Company completed Phase I of the buildout of its 12,800-sq. ft. hemp processing and production facility in Belfast, Maine (the “Facility”). During Phase I, the Company upgraded the Facility’s electrical system, installed state of the art lighting and propagation tables and hired a seasoned team to assist with planting. Finishing Phase I allows the Company to plant over 200,000 seeds for the propagation of feminized CBD hemp seedlings. These seedlings will produce feminized CBD seeds for sale as well as CBD isolate biomass.In response to a successful petition by Future Farm and other Maine licensees, Maine’s State Horticulturist has issued an Extension of Indoor Growing Allowance for the 2018 Season.
