Maple Leaf Green World, Inc. (MGWFF)

mlgwMaple Leaf Green World, Inc holds a unique spot in the marijuana industry: it is an eco-agriculture company primarily dealing with reforestation and renewable energy, and has recently ventured as a marijuana cultivator. Though its projects are mostly in China, it is registered as a wholly owned foreign enterprise in Canada.

Among the company’s reforestation involvements was the Inner Mongolia Greenhouse Project, wherein it cultivated and sold tree seedlings to fight desertification in China. This project had two greenhouses equipped with Chinese and Dutch technologies. The subsidiary handling this, Inner Mongolia Maple Leaf Reforestation Co Ltd, was sold to a Canadian private group.

Maple Leaf Green World is also involved in yellowhorn tree projects, including one in China’s Jimsar county and another for the distribution of yellowhorn products in Europe. The yellowhorn trees are used for anti-desertification, biodiesel, cooking, and several medical applications.

The company has other projects such as the marketing of Ellepress peat pellets and the distribution of Agro Balt peat moss both in China, and the distribution of soil enhancement products from various companies.

In July 2014, Maple Leaf Green World entered the marijuana industry by submitting its application under Canada’s Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR). The company followed this up in September with an announcement to develop a medical marijuana growing operation in California, USA.

Maple Leaf Green World, Inc was founded in 2005 and was formerly known as Maple Leaf Reforestation, Inc. Today, it trades in the TSX Venture Exchange as MGW with a market cap of CAD 5.41 M. Its top executives are Raymond Lai, Chairman, CEO, and President; Daniel Chu, CFO; and Joe Wong, VP of Operations and Head of Medical Marijuana Project.
