Pac Roots Cannabis Corp. (“PacRoots” or the “Company”) (CSE:PACR), is pleased to announce the execution of a definitive Investment Agreement with Rock Creek Farms (“RCF”) on a 100 acre commercial hemp operation, in Rock Creek, British Columbia.

Pursuant to the press release announced on May 29, 2020, PacRoots entered into a binding letter of intent with a private British Columbia company, now referred to as Rock Creek Farms to form the Outdoor Premium Hemp Joint Venture company, which will be owned 60% by Pac Roots and 40% by Rock Creek Farms.


On June 30th, the parties entered into a definitive Investment Agreement which defined the terms of their respective investments and the creation and governance of the joint venture company. Upon closing, a shareholder agreement will be entered into governing the operations of the joint venture company. RCF is controlled by Marc Geen, Alexander Kaulins and M&J Orchards, a Geen family company and has provided a commercial lease to the joint venture, for 50 acres of M&J owned land, with the remaining 50 acres under commercial lease through Speakeasy Cannabis Club.

PacRoots contribution to the joint venture will be an aggregate of $450,000 in capital, of which $200,000 has been funded to date and the balance of which will be funded upon closing of the investment agreement. RCF has contributed two commercial leases for over 100 acres of growing space, consulting services, cultivation licenses and equipment, agricultural infrastructure and intellectual property relating to commercial scale hemp operations and proprietary biomass storage techniques. Profits generated from the joint venture will be distributed first to PacRoots until its capital contributions have been repaid and thereafter in accordance with the interests in the joint venture held by the parties.

Closing of the investment agreement is conditional upon the completion of a financing of PacRoots generating aggregate gross proceeds of $600,000 and receipt of any applicable regulatory approvals.

The Operational crews have been working around the clock to prepare the fields, install irrigation and plant the seedlings. Thus far, approximately 42,500 premium hemp CBD seedlings have been planted across 35 acres on the lower paddock and the remaining acreage is expected to be planted in the coming weeks. Pac Roots and Rock Creek Farms have planted a premium grade CBD Hemp variety through traditional and customized farming techniques while utilizing the rich native soil.

“The Joint Venture team has been extremely busy preparing and planting the 100 acres with Hemp CBD cultivars. We are thrilled with the short-term progress, making it possible for a 2020 production scenario to cultivate industrial Hemp in the ‘Golden Mile’. Our operational partners at Rock Creek Farms bring decades of generational farming expertise in one of Canada’s pre-eminent growing regions. It will be an exciting outdoor growing season for the Joint Venture as we anticipate a successful harvest in the fall.” President and CEO, Patrick Elliott

Rock Creek is a well establish agricultural mecca situated in British Columbia’s ‘Golden Mile’ in the South Okanagan Valley. It is celebrated for its ideal climate conditions, honouring this region’s tradition of excellence and a family legacy that has grown here for more than 120 years. PacRoots is delighted to be involved with such a rich heritage and years of agriculture expertise to apply to this 100-acre Hemp CBD Project. In accordance with the Industrial Hemp Regulations of the Cannabis Act (Canada), an industrial hemp license from Health Canada was issued on May 22nd, 2020 for the addresses relating to the acreages noted above. The license allows the collective to cultivate, sell, import, export, possess and process industrial hemp until March 15th, 2021.
