"We are pleased to announce that we expect CannAmerica branded products to be available in the Oklahoma medical cannabis market in the coming months," said Dan Anglin, CEO and Co-Founder of CannAmerica. "By signing this Agreement, CannAmerica will be poised to bring its menu of cannabis infused edible products, concentrates, and other medicinal cannabis product lines to the great state of Oklahoma. We have long been ready to bring our product lines to patients in the southern United States and are proud to be working with THC and their extraordinary management team. We anticipate that our expertise and quality products, combined with THC management, will increase the quality and variety of products available to the Oklahoma medical cannabis patient community."
The Agreement aligns with the Company's established goals to expand into additional markets in the United States during 2019.
"We are very proud to be a part of the CannAmerica team so we may provide their edibles and other highly-rated products to our patients in Oklahoma," said Loretta Lever, CEO and President of THC.
Additionally, the Company is pleased to announce that it has entered into an extension agreement in respect of the previously announced binding letter of intent ("LOI") dated March 8, 2019 to create a joint venture ("JV") with Sericea Labs S.A. de C.V. and CBDistribution Company Ltd. with the intention of building a facility in Mexico for importing and warehousing licensed CBD products as well as CBD oils and tinctures destined for refining. The term of the LOI has been extended to January 1, 2020.
"The Company has learned that the Government of Mexico is making strides in the effort to legalize hemp-based products for manufacturing and distribution across Mexico," said Dan Anglin, CEO and Co-Founder of CannAmerica. "We understand that the legislative process to create a new industry sometimes takes more time than expected, and have decided to extend the LOI through to the end of the year to allow more time for legalization to pass through the legislative bodies. We look forward to executing the agreement upon successful passage of legislation to legalize hemp and cannabinoid products in Mexico."
