One World Pharma Becomes Legal Seller of HEMP/CBD Seeds in Two Large Colombian Regions
Company Already Has 2.5 Million Seeds in Inventory Ready for Sale
LAS VEGAS, NV, March 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE ‒ One World Pharma Inc. (OTCQB: OWPC), a fully licensed pure-play cannabis and hemp ingredient producer in Colombia, is pleased to announce that the Colombian Agricultural Institute (ICA), has approved the results of the characterization tests conducted by OWP of three non-psychoactive genetics in two sub-regions of the country at the same time. The approval establishes OWP as one of the few legal sellers of characterized hemp/CBD seeds in the Cauca and the Andina regions of Colombia, essentially greater Bogota and its surroundings.
The approval will allow the Company to fulfill waiting purchase orders and to begin to commercialize its standing and growing inventory of roughly 2.5 million seeds. The Company believes the current market value for these seeds is between approximately $1 and $3 U.S. dollars per seed.
Genetic characterization tests are a set of analytical tests that the ICA requires every hemp cultivator to undergo in order to produce and commercialize seeds in Colombia. Approval is only granted after a full cycle of crop growth, from seed/clone to harvest, and finally laboratory testing. To date, OWP is the first company in Colombia to simultaneously undergo characterization tests in two sub-regions of Colombia and to be approved for both at the same time.
“It is a tremendous achievement to have received these important and difficult to obtain approvals,” stated Brian Moore, President, One World Pharma. “This is a transformative moment as we are now firmly in a monetization cycle, with approvals and many up-front costs behind us.”
“After years of quietly building this business we have now entered an all-new phase,” added Moore.
