CROP Infrastructure, further to its recent Letter of Intent with Naturally Splendid, will begin utilizing Naturally Splendid’s proprietary HempOmega™ in its 'CannaDrink' functional beverage line which is currently under development.

HempOmega™, a unique and proprietary homogenous powder created from microencapsulated hemp seed oil, is a high-quality and sustainable omega fatty acid alternative ingredient.

Due to its unique powder format, it solves the formulation challenge manufacturers face when trying to add oil to existing products and has proven to increase the bioavailability of omega fatty acids.

CannaDrink will now be available in all other jurisdictions containing HempOmega™ where CBD products are not yet approved.

CROP's new cannabis-infused line of soft drinks called CannaDrink will be a zero calorie, non-GMO, ketogenic-friendly line of soda pop, tea, and coffee variations.

In addition to its CannaDrink beverage line, CROP is working with Naturally Splendid to develop a "Hempire" branded hulled hemp seed and protein powder product line.

CROP and Naturally Splendid are currently testing a variety of flavors and formulations created by NSP specifically for the Hempire Brand that will be enhanced with NSP's HempOmega™.

According to a March 2018 report by Grand View Research, Inc., the global carbonated soft drinks market was worth US$392.6 billion in 2016 and is projected to reach US$605.6 Billion by 2025.

Doug Mason, Naturally Splendid CEO, stated: "We are pleased to be working with CROP to create quality, white-labelled hemp products for the Hempire brand as well as providing our proprietary HempOmega™ ingredient for CROP's innovative CannaDrink functional soft drink line. CannaDrink is formulated to deliver superior omega nutrition. By utilizing Naturally Splendid's proprietary HempOmega™ it provides 'first mover advantage' for Naturally Splendid and CROP to formulate cannabis formulated beverages and edibles, as HempOmega™ has been approved for product fortification without the concern or restrictions of cannabinoid formulated beverages and edibles.”

Michael Yorke, Crop CEO, stated: "We believe in the nutritional spectrum and health benefits of both hemp and CBD so adding a consumer goods vertical was a logical progression as consumer data shows strong trends in plant-based foods and nutritional products. We see it as a tremendous opportunity for CROP Infrastructure's branding & IP portfolio."

CROP is primarily engaged in the business of investing, constructing, owning and leasing greenhouse projects as part of the provision of turnkey real estate solutions for lease-to-licensed cannabis producers and processors.

The company's portfolio of projects includes cultivation properties in California, two in Washington State, a 1,000-acre Nevada Cannabis farm, a 1,865-acre CBD farm, extraction in Nevada with international focuses in Jamaica and Italy and a joint venture on West Hollywood and San Bernardino dispensary applications.

CROP has developed a portfolio of assets including Canna Drink, a cannabis infused functional beverage, US and Italian distribution rights to over 55 cannabis topical products and a portfolio of 16 Cannabis brands.

CROP Infrastructure, which began trading on the CSE on March 13th, is trading at $0.48.
