Panacea Life expands CBD business into Guyana, South America to capitalize on the country’s rapid growth

GOLDEN, Colo., April 19, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Panacea Life Sciences Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: PLSH) (“Panacea” or the “Company”), a Colorado-based manufacturing, research, and product development company in the natural health and wellness industry, announced today the execution of a distribution agreement with C.A.G. Global to expand its line of “seed-to-sale” CBD products into Guyana, South America.

Why Guyana?

Guyana is considered an emerging growth country poised for extensive growth due to its recent oil reserve discovery (GeoVane 2020). This discovery has and will continue to provide an economic boom to the previously disregarded country in South America, dwarfing their 2019 $5 billion GDP with the ability to produce an estimated 25 billion barrels of oil and natural gas by the end of the decade.

The timing for Panacea Life’s CBD brand launch in Guyana is ideal. According to C.A.G. Global Founder, Cort Gomes, “the CBD market is a new and exciting market which plays in directly with the government's vision for a greener Guyana. Our people will welcome a healthier path to wellness, and, for this reason, the CBD market will become one of the most booming markets in Guyana over the next coming years”.

Panacea will launch its full line of CBD topical and ingestible products in May 2023 through C.A.G. Global. In the country’s capital of Georgetown there are 15 large pharmacies and numerous convenience stores eager to provide Panacea products to its 300,000 citizens. As Panacea expands its reach globally, the Company intends to develop relationships with countries like Guyana that are embracing hemp and unlocking the true potential of cannabinoid research for medicinal use rather than just recreational use.

“We have seen early indications of a very strong market in South America, and we are excited to have C.A.G. Global join the Panacea team,” states Nick Cavarra, President of Panacea Life.

Because Panacea develops and manufactures all its CBD products in-house, the Company can provide an array of CBD products priced in accordance with the socioeconomics of Guyana to provide its citizens with an all-natural remedy for relief of common ailments like pain, sleep deprivation and anxiety.

Cavarra notes, “Our focus for 2023 is to pursue master distribution partners and introduce the Panacea Life assortment of CBD products to the world in order to help improve quality of life with natural, plant-based products.”
