Global Hemp Group Inc. (OTCMKTS: GBHPF) Finalizes Incorporation of its Mexican Subsidiary and Updates on R&D Division

Published

on

Global Hemp Group Inc. (OTCMKTS: GBHPF) has offered an update regarding its research and development initiatives in Mexico. In addition, the company has finalized the incorporation of a subsidiary in Mexico. 

Global Hemp Group receives recognition in Mexico

While this was a lengthy procedure that took the better part of the year to complete, GHG now has official recognition in Mexico. As a government-recognized company, the company can now explore its hemp license to cultivate and extract hemp material for primary use by the R&D Division and participate in more substantial collaborations throughout Mexico. In addition, the Mexican Senate is anticipated to pass hemp and cannabis legislation during the current parliamentary session, which began in September.

Also, the company is thrilled to disclose that it has hired a team of US and Mexican patent attorneys to finish the documentation required to file the R&D Division’s first patent. The patent covers a new process for creating a hemp-based composite substance that might be utilized as an alternative for Medium Density Fibreboard in the building industry.

GHG announced a Collaboration Agreement with the National Autonomous University of Mexico (Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico – UNAM), one of the world’s premier Spanish-speaking institutions and Latin America’s most prestigious educational institution, on August 24, 2021. This relationship gives GHG access to the university’s cutting-edge laboratory equipment, and also UNAM’s research library, and the ability to connect with students and academics with diverse backgrounds. In addition, this has allowed the R&D Division to broaden its experimental and conceptual work. 

Global Hemp Group cancels $2.3 million

Additionally, GHG has announced the cancellation of 2.3 million common shares in its capital and their return to treasury. The shares were initially issued in connection with GHG’s Scio Oregon hemp initiative. The company kept them in escrow until the project met certain financial benchmarks before being released to specific employees and consultants. However, the company has recently stopped its Oregon operations to create its Green Community in Hayden, Colorado, as the project did not meet these milestones.

Gb Sciences Inc. (OTCMKTS: GBLX) Finalizes The Sale Of The Las Vegas Cannabis Factor As It Transitions To Biopharmaceutical Industry

Published

on

Gb Sciences Inc. (OTCMKTS: GBLX) has finalized the sale of the last remaining cannabis facility, completing its transition to the biopharmaceutical sector. 

Gb Sciences turns its focus on the biopharmaceutical sector 

CEO and Chairman John Poss said, “This is a landmark event for Gb Sciences. We have emerged from this sale as a pure-play biopharmaceutical research and development company. With an improved balance sheet, we are positioned to generate substantial value from our unique pipeline of patent-protected formulations for the prescription drug market that targets a range of serious medical problems.” 

Gb Sciences’ decision to cut ties with the cannabis production market allows the company to move its shares to a major exchange and attract strategic partners and institutional investors in the biopharmaceutical medication research sector, allowing it to speed its clinical development.

Dr. Andrea Small-Howard, Chief Scientific Officer and President of the company, said, “Gb Sciences has established a pipeline of patent-protected combination therapies for the treatment of medical conditions affecting hundreds of millions of people. We can now concentrate all our energies on advancing our plant-inspired, biopharmaceutical research and development programs into human clinical trials.”

The Las Vegas cannabis factory sale was completed on December 31, 2021, after the Nevada Cannabis Compliance Board ordered the transfer of the company’s cannabis cultivation and processing licenses to AJE Management, LLC on December 14, 2021. Gb Sciences will be able to decrease outstanding debt and strengthen its liquidity position as a result of the $8 million transactions. The buyer will pay Gb Sciences a $3 million interest-bearing note over three years in exchange for $1.2 million in cash and $3.8 million in instant debt and liability reduction.

Gb Sciences has several pending patent applications 

Gb Sciences IP portfolio includes three international and five US patents to protect therapeutic mixtures for chronic pain, Parkinson’s disease, heart disease, and hyperinflamamtion. The company also has 43 international and 12 US pending patent applications covering its patented drug discovery platform, PhAROS, and other plant-inspired combination medications for the treatment of over 65 critical medical illnesses.
