Pideka SAS Announces Partnership with Lifford Cannabis Solutions CEO Lisa Campbell
BOGOTA, Colombia, March 5, 2019 /CNW/ - Pideka SAS, a Colombian company licensed for cannabis cultivation and processing, has just announced a strategic partnership with Canadian cannabis business innovator Lisa Campbell, CEO of Lifford Cannabis Solutions to bring medical cannabis to the Canadian market. Pideka SAS is licensed to produce and manufacture cannabis extracts, seeds and final products for medical and scientific use, is currently exploring the global market export opportunities in the near future from Colombia to Canada.
"Pideka is the first indoor licensed producer in Colombia cultivating and processing cannabis at the same standards as Canada. Colombia will be the genetic seed bank for the world, as we have the highest quality standards for seeds globally with phytosanitary certificates," emphasized Pideka SAS Global Director of Operations, Borja Sanz de Madrid.
Currently there is a huge gap in cannabis supply in the Canadian market, especially for medical patients who are running out of the products they rely on. In 2015 Colombia announced a medical cannabis export program for export and Pideka SAS was one of the first licensed processors to be approved. With the recent increase of international cannabis mergers and acquisitions, the pressure is on for Health Canada to begin to authorize imports. Recently the World Health Organization suggested removing CBD from the international drug conventions, opening the door for import and export of cannabis products.
"With a shortage of medical cannabis in Canada post legalization, it is vital now more than ever that Health Canada approves medical import. Pideka SAS is the solution for Canada's cannabis shortage, it's time to put patients first," stated Lifford Cannabis Solutions CEO Lisa Campbell.
