(CSE: NGW) (OTCQX: NXGWF) ("Next Green Wave", "NGW" or the "Company")is pleased to announce it is launching its next exclusive cannabis product line with influential illustrator and artist Junkyard, through its subsidiary SDC Ventures LLC.

Next Green Wave CEO and Executive Director, Leigh Hughes stated: "We're thrilled to be working with Junkyard and believe his loyal fanbase and individual brand will add further strong impetus to our growth and give us wider access potential to a niche consumer looking for distinguished and quality-based cannabis products."
"We launched the Junkyard Cannabis brand with NGW and SDC as an extension of what is already happening in our fanbase. As a large portion of our fanbase are cannabis fans and consumers, it was a natural next step. Our team is excited to finally launch a premium brand with NGW and SDC. We have been looking for a partner that has the same aesthetic and attention to detail in their craft. It has been a fantastic process working alongside their team. Look out soon for products in California legal dispensaries," commented Junkyard.
Junkyard is an illustrator and street artist who was born and raised in South Africa now splitting his time between Chicago and LA. Known for some of his larger than life black and white murals and clothing, he has teamed up with some of the biggest brands in the game including Disney. His Instagram account took off after he installed a mural at Threadless HQ in Chicago and began to sell T-Shirts to fans. No one knows what he looks like, which adds to the mystery behind the brand and brings focus to the art he produces. His distinct style and passion for craft high end concentrates will fill a gap in the market.
