Wiisag Corporation, a Canadian indigenous integrated cannabis company, has signed an agreement to partner with the Westmoreland Hemp and Ganga Farmers Association (WHGFA) to grow two crops of medical marijuana on a 10-acre property in that parish.
Based on the agreement, which was signed last month in Negril, Wiisag Corporation will provide funding and management services to WHGFA under a pilot project set to begin in the second quarter of 2019.
“Both parties seek to forge a strategic partnership to grow and develop medical marijuana products,” WHGFA Chairman Delroy Johnson, who chaired the signing, said.
“Our commitment is to work with Wiisag and benefit from their vision to create a competitive global company with branded products grown and developed by indigenous farmers and entrepreneurs. We have so much talent and know-how here. We’ve looked at many proposals over the past two years from all sorts of companies but Wiisag’s approach, team, and dedication to indigenous values and principles won the day,” he continued.
