October 4, 2017 – Future Farm Technologies Inc. (the “Company” or “Future Farm”) (CSE: FFT) (OTCQB: FFRMF) is pleased to announce that its subsidiary FFM Consulting Services, LLC has completed a wholesale oil sale of 3525 grams of crude cannabis oil from the California oil extraction facility located in Huntington Park*. The sale was made to a large distributor with whom the Company is now negotiating a supply contract for 100-250 kilos of oil per week.
“We have made significant strides in defining our unique product offering to meet the market demand in California,” says John Sweeney, COO of Future Farm Technologies. “We expect to remain flexible and do not intend to produce materials that do not sell, instead focusing on those materials that are in demand. The key to our success in this market is becoming a highly respected, reliable, and predictable producer for our wholesale partners while keeping operational costs low to maintain profitability. We are committed to finding unique solutions to remain focused on this goal.”
“We believe this alcohol extraction machine is the best extraction equipment on the market today, which allows us to be able to process large amounts of cannabis flower into highly pure concentrates,” says Bill Gildea, CEO of Future Farm. “This follow on purchase order is a very positive event for our emerging oil extraction business as we work on scaling up to meet the increasing demand in California.”
According to cannabis market research firm the Arcview Group, California makes up more than one-fourth of all legal marijuana sales in North America.
Cannabis concentrates and edibles are the largest and fastest growing segments of the cannabis market, which many experts believe will overtake flower sales by 2020. The popularity of wax, shatter and oil has blossomed along with various consumption devices. The market is booming because cannabis concentrates are used to make edibles, topical ointments, capsules and other packaged products that require a more refined extraction process. As the recreational industry gets underway in California in 2018, many believe concentrates will continue to grow in popularity.
*Note: As previously announced, FFM Consulting Services, LLC, the majority owned subsidiary of Future Farm, is under contract for management services with local non-profit Patriot Extracts CA, Inc.
