One World Pharma Enters into First Colombian Seed Sale Agreement
First Sale Signals One World’s Entry into Monetization Phase
LAS VEGAS, NV, May 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE – One World Phama Inc. (OTC: OWPC), a fully licensed cannabis cultivator and manufacturer based in Bogota and Popayan, Colombia, is pleased to announce that it has entered into its first seed sale agreement in Colombia with Kevin Steven Ocampo Prieto of Bogota.
Through this long term, evergreen agreement, One World Pharma has agreed to provide Prieto with seeds of its non-psychoactive cannabis strains, which are in the registration procedure for the national register of commercial cultivars of the Instituto Colombiano Agropecuario (ICA).
“This sale represents an important first commercial step for One World Pharma and our plan to be a significant international seller of hemp and cannabis ingredients such as CBD, THC, and seeds,” stated Brian Moore, Chief Operating Officer, One World Pharma. “This first sale represents a benchmark for our team as we have endeavored for some time to secure the approvals needed to legally cultivate and to blend modern technology and Colombia’s own agricultural artisanship into truly exceptional strains.”
“This seed sale is our first agreement under our seed license as we begin to serve the local market with our proprietary strains and we believe there will be many licensed growers we can assist as they build their businesses. I firmly believe this is just the tip of the iceberg for One World Pharma,” added Moore. “We will also begin supplying seeds to the international market and are now firmly launched into our first monetization phase with our first sanctioned crops to be harvested this year. One World Pharma is well-positioned to be one of the significant producers and suppliers in Colombia, perhaps the finest cannabis cultivation ecosystem on the planet.”
