Cannabis company Sugarbud Craft Growers (TSXV:SUGR) has successfully completed its first harvest, and has a second crop well underway.

The company completed the first harvest on March 2, 2020, and has nearly finished the drying and curing process.

Sugarbud’s CEO, John Kondrosky, called the successful first harvest a major milestone for the company. 

“We are all very pleased with the quality and outcomes of our first crop, along with the operating level and performance of our facility overall.

The crop’s preliminary potency and terpene testing is in line with our commitment to bring high-quality dried cannabis to Canadian consumers,” he said. 

Sugarbud’s second cannabis crop is already growing, and should be ready for harvesting in early June, 2020. 

At this time, the company hopes to ship its first revenue-generating commercial batch early in 2020’s second quarter.

As the economy feels the sting of the COVID-19 pandemic, companies everywhere have begun implementing preventative measures to protect employees and customers. 

Sugarbud has followed suit, by encouraging staff to practice social distancing, and to work remotely. The company has also enhanced its health and safety protocols across its entire operating environment. 

Sugarbud will continue monitoring the situation as it unfolds, and will continue following advice from the government and public health authorities. 

Despite current volative markets, the company plans to launch its first adult recreational dried cannabis products, in 2020’s third quarter. The company recently submitted its amended dried cannabis sales license application to Health Canada. Once approved, this will allow Sugarbud to sell to authorised provincial wholesalers and retailers. 

“We are backed by a clear vision, a disciplined financial and operating model, and a strong, experienced management team. We will continue to focus on what we can control, execute our plan, and hit the milestones we laid out for the company,” John concluded. 

Sugarbud’s share price is up 20 per cent, and trading at 3 cents per share, as of 1:12pm EST.
