Cannabis Global Acquires Controlling Interest in Cannabis Manufacturer and Distributor Natural Plant Extract – Eyes National Markets for Cannabis Tech
LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / February 17, 2021 / Cannabis Global, Inc. (OTC PINK:CBGL) (‘Cannabis Global’ or the ‘Company’), an emerging operator of disruptive business and technologies in the cannabis and hemp marketplace, today announces it has acquired a 56.4%, controlling interest in Natural Plant Extract (NPE), which operates a licensed cannabis manufacturing and distribution business in Lynwood, California, holding a Type 7 California Manufacturing and a distribution license, allowing for cannabis product distribution anywhere in the state.
‘While this acquisition has the initial focus on California, we believe our technologies have true national implications,’ commented Arman Tabatabaei, Chief Executive Officer. ‘We plan to use the Lynwood NPE operation, combined with our internally developed technologies, as a testbed to launch multi-state operations as soon as possible after the expected removal of cannabis as a Scheduled substance from the federal Controlled Substances Act is completed, and interstate commerce in cannabis is approved by the federal government.’
In September of 2020, the Company acquired 18.8% of NPE, with an additional 18.8% purchased in January of 2021. This most recent agreement, which closed on February 16, 2021, brings Cannabis Global’s ownership to approximately 56.4%, allowing for a controlling position and full consolidation of NPE’s financials under the Cannabis Global corporate umbrella as a wholly owned subsidiary.
Mr Tabatabaei continued, ‘This is a significant event for Cannabis Global and its shareholders,’ commented Arman Tabatabaei, Chief Executive Officer. ‘We plan to fully operate the Natural Plant Extract facility effective immediately with emphasis on product manufacturing and distribution. We are especially excited about the acquisition of the existing Type 7 license, which allows us to produce cannabis products using volatile solvents. The California Department of Public Health and other regulators severely limit the issuance of this type of license. We plan to make full use of the valuable Type 7 asset.’
In addition to business opportunities available from product manufacturing and distribution to all parts of the State of California, Cannabis Global also sees strong synergies between the NPE operations and its developing technologies in the areas of secure cannabis transport, cannabis infusions, and all-natural polymeric nanoparticle technologies.
Thus far, the Company has filed six provisional patents, three non-provisional patents and has recently announced its Comply Bag™ secure cannabis transport system with integrated track and trace capabilities via smartphones which will be available soon.
