VANCOUVER, British Columbia – January 22, 2019 /Canna Newswire/ – Weekend Unlimited Inc. (“Weekend” or the “Company”) (CSE: YOLO – FSE: 0OS1) through one of its subsidiaries, Weekend Unlimited Washington LLC, announces the signing of an arms-length letter of intent to provide processing and distribution facilities to Boggy Boon branded cannabis company Seven Hills, with an option to acquire Seven Hills. Under the agreement terms, Weekend will provide a loan of up to $750,000 USD to Seven Hills in three equal tranches over 9 months to upgrade its facilities, and will have the option to acquire 100 percent of Seven Hills for $1,500,000 USD.
“Boggy Boon branded cannabis is cultivated in a 28,000 square foot facility located in Wenatchee, Washington where Weekend’s wholly owned subsidiary Orchard Heights Growers is also located.
