Colombia begins shipping CBD to Switzerland

A Colombian cannabis producer has completed the country’s first commercial export of CBD isolate to Europe after its shipment arrived safely in Switzerland.

The Colombian government granted its first CBD isolate export permit to PharmaCielo (TSXV: PCLO) last month, and the firm has moved quickly to begin supplying the lucrative European market. It has now shipped its first batch to the Swiss office of Creso Pharma, an Australian pharmaceutical company it is in the process of purchasing for AU$122 million.

David Attard, chief executive at PharmaCielo, said the inaugural shipment was “symbolic on many levels”.

What you need to know about cannabis in Latin America

A number of countries in Latin America have the potential to become global leaders in the cannabis space. Here’s what you need to know.
 

When people talk about cannabis, all eyes turn to Canada. After all, the country was of the first to legalize cultivation and usage for medical purposes in 2001.

Read entire article here.

One of the ways that Next Green Wave has been able to differentiate itself from the competition is through strategic investment in assets outside of the California market. Earlier this year, the company signed definitive agreements to make a strategic investment in Organic Medical Growth OMG3 INC. (OMG), which is focused on producing and commercializing CBD products derived from medical and industrial cannabis in Colombia. We have been favorable on the economics associated with the cannabis opportunity in Latin America and find the leverage to Colombia to be worth highlighting.

3 global cannabis companies investors need to be watching

Read entire article here

The final installment in our recent series of articles covering the Canadian cannabis industry, we will be discussing the international cannabis opportunity and will highlight 3 Canadian Licensed Producers (LPs) that are highly focused on this side of the business.

One of the biggest pushbacks faced by the Canadian cannabis industry is related to the potential size of this market.

Is the Colombian cannabis industry leading Latin America, or just leading investors on a wild goose chase?

The reality is most Colombian-based cannabis companies are still struggling to find their footing while being built out and many are making misleading claims in the cannabis space.

Cannabis in Latin America gets a new ‘social outlook’

By most measures the anti-narcotics raid was a raging success. After forcing their way into the apartment, police here in Peru's capital seized five kilograms (11 pounds) of cannabis and equipment, including grow lights and fertilizer.

The entire property in the Lima district of San Miguel, overlooking the South Pacific, had been converted into an underground lab to produce significant quantities of the prohibited soft drug — a lab that the officers had put out of action.
