State Cannabis Laws Alabama

Published

on

While we don’t profess to have all the answers to understanding the extraordinarily complex landscape of various legislative contexts related to the cannabis plant in the United States, we do hope to shed some light on this landscape, including how your local legislative context may play into your strategic decisions surrounding your health and your proactive planning as you attempt to make use of nature’s bounty for the wide range of powerful preventative and curative characteristics associated with the cannabis plant.

As such, today, we are going to take a close look at the legislative context found in the great state of Alabama where cannabis related substances are concerned.

The first point to make about Alabama legislation related to cannabis is the passage in 2016 of SB 174, a law remarkably set to be repealed on an automatic basis next year. The law itself was actually “amplified” by HB 61, also put in place last year, and nicknamed Leni’s Law.

The law provides for anyone affected with a certain range of difficult to manage diseases of any age to administer themselves or to be administered CBD in any form (as long as no cannabis plant matter is in any way involved and that the content by volume of THC is less than 3% relative to the content of volume of CBD present in whatever substance is to be administered).

The range of conditions provided for includes: cachexia or wasting syndrome, severe or chronic pain, severe nausea, seizures, and severe and persistent muscle spasms. There is also a catchall clause which qualifies any other condition that is “severe and resistant to conventional medicine”.

The most important part of this new law – HB 61 – is that it removed the automatic repeal set to come into place next year. In other words, CBD for medical reasons in the state of Alabama is here to stay. This is terrific news as a measuring stick for the progress of activism in the CBD marketplace in the United States.

Alabama is known as a highly conservative state on many levels, particularly when it comes to issues such as this. Hence, the fact that there is now essentially a permanent availability to this important substance under such conditions as this points to a very bright future for the legislative context for CBD on a wider basis.

At the end of the day, it continues to be important to understand that CBD oil derived from industrial hemp is 100% legal in all 50 states of the United States of America.

Industrial hemp is, by definition, a plant that never contains more than extremely small concentrations of THC, even though it is generally very rich in concentrations of CBD and other important cannabinoids.

Village Farms International Inc (NASDAQ: VFF) Reports Sequential Growth in Branded Sales on its Q1 2021 Financial Results

Published

on

For close to 30years now, Village Farms International Inc (NASDAQ: VFF) has continued to top the charts of being one of the largest and longest-operating vertically integrated greenhouse growers in North America. The producer and distributor of premium-quality produce operate from more than nine million square feet of Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) greenhouses in British Columbia and Texas. Its core markets include the U.S. and Canada, with notable greenhouse partnerships in British Columbia, Ontario, and Mexico.

Village Farms’ Q1 2021 financial results are out. They have been consolidated with those of its wholly-owned subsidiary, Pure Sunfarms. The financial results portray sequential growth of 20% or more outstanding in its priority sales channel and Retail Branded Sales. The company was also on record as the top-selling brand of dried flower products with the Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS). 

“The first quarter of 2021 was yet another strong quarter for Pure Sunfarms… and is especially encouraging given the softness in the Canadian market due to pandemic restrictions, which stalled sales growth for the rest of the industry,” Village Farms CEO, Michael DeGiglio announced

The British-Columbia-based Pure Sunfarms is one of the lowest-cost greenhouse producers, one of the single most extensive cannabis operations globally, and reportedly one of the best-selling brands in Canada. 

The Strategy Now is to Become a Leading Developer and Supplier of Branded CBD products.

Village Farms leverages decades of experience in large-scale agriculture and as a producer supplier of the best-selling brands in Canada. The company has a good presence in North America and select markets internationally, where cannabis and CBD are legal. 

Meanwhile, it seeks to work on a strategy that will open more doors to becoming a developer and supplier of branded and white-labeled CBD products. The primary target is significant retailers and consumer packaged goods companies. This will be in line with the applicable U.S. federal and state laws. 

And in other news, the company has re-appointed PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as its auditor until the next annual meeting of shareholders and the directors.

SpeakEasy Cannabis Club Ltd (OTCMKTS: SPBBF) Provides Corporate Update for its Q1 2021 Sales and Q2 2021 Financial Results

Published

on

Canada is home to some of the top cannabis growers across the world. And like you and I know, the cannabis industry is burgeoning pretty fast, resulting in improved quarterly financials for several companies. SpeakEasy Cannabis Club Ltd (OTCMKTS: SPBBF) is one of the beneficiaries, having reported upbeat earnings for Q1 2021 from the sale of its indoor grow operations. 

According to Malcolm Davidson, CEO, everyone played a significant role in bringing home the remarkable results and amidst so many challenges. “This achievement is particularly satisfying given the challenging environment for many cannabis companies and the uncertainty in the current markets…” He reported. Their labor was not in vain. 

Convertible Loan Agreement with 10161233 Canada Limited and Bhayana Ventures Ltd

SpeakEasy Cannabis Club Ltd is set to obtain a loan from Bhayana Ventures Ltd. The loan stands at a minimum of $2.0 million and up to a maximum of $3.0 million. It will accrue interest at a rate of 6.0% per annum. The terms and conditions of the Loan Agreement dictate that the loan is payable in monthly arrears and is repayable on the second-anniversary date of the closing date. 

The borrower will cause the grant to the Lender of a first mortgage over the Guarantor’s property in Rock Creek, British Columbia, as a form of security for the loan. 

The Appointment of a New Auditor and Other Company Updates

Manning Elliott LLP has replaced Davidson & Company LLP as the auditor for SpeakEasy Cannabis Club Ltd. The replacement was occasioned by a resignation request made by the latter through the Company’s Board of Directors. On the other side, the company has also been thrown into mourning by the sudden death of Ian Waddell Q.C. He was the strategic advisor to the Board. 

In other news, the company says that preparations are underway for the 2021 growing season, and the goal is to accomplish a 100% increase in yield. In 2020, SpeakEasy Cannabis had a bumper harvest, which delivered a quality crop of flower potency 15-18 % THC.
