Acquires Colombian Cannabis Operator Preparing for Expansion and First Harvest
LAS VEGAS, NV, Feb. 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE – One World Pharma Inc. (OTC Pink: OWPC), is pleased to announce that it has acquired One World Pharma SAS, a fully licensed cannabis cultivator and manufacturer based in Popayan, Colombia, in a merger transaction that closed on February 21, 2019. Under the terms of the merger agreement, the stockholders of OWP Ventures, Inc., which is the parent company of One World Pharma SAS, will be issued an aggregate of 39,475,398 shares of common stock of One World Pharma, Inc. After giving effect to the merger, One World Pharma, Inc. has 39,922,898 shares of common stock issued and outstanding.
Colombia is considered by many to be an ideal growing location for cannabis, hemp and related products. The nation’s equatorial climate, pro-cannabis government regulations, and talented local population provide the core ingredients to produce high crop yields and quality product for export at a low cost, allowing for significant margin regardless of changing market conditions.
One World Pharma SAS has been developing relationships and infrastructure in Colombia for two years, working hand in hand with the indigenous population and government officials. The company holds all four key government issued licenses for the cultivation of psychoactive high THC, cultivation of non-psychoactive low THC, manufacture of cannabis derivatives, and seed use.
“One World Pharma has exceeded our expectations as a thriving, rapidly expanding licensed Colombian medical cannabis producer,” stated Craig Ellins, CEO, One World Pharma Inc. “The Company is ideally situated to capitalize on the Colombian opportunity with significant production capacity and registered strains. We will be utilizing the entire plant in a synergistic marriage of U.S. based cultivation and manufacturing technology and the hospitable cultivation environment that Colombia provides. We are committed to building One World Pharma into a key player in the international supply chain, as global branded consumer products, beverage and pharmaceutical companies call for a truly industrial level of supply.”
“We look forward to sharing the results of our first harvest,” added Ellins.
