VANCOUVER, Jan. 5, 2018 /CNW/ - PUF Ventures Inc. ("PUF" or the "Company") (CSE: PUF) (Frankfurt: PU3) (OTCPK: PUFXF), an advanced Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations ("ACMPR") license applicant, is pleased to announce the Australian government intends to expunge the export ban on cannabis products in February 2018 and allow the export of cannabis products worldwide. The Australian federal government has ambitions for Australia to become the largest producer of medicinal cannabis products in the world.
"We would like to be, potentially, the world's number one medicinal cannabis supplier," Greg Hunt, Australia's Health Minister said in a statement. "By helping the domestic manufacturers to expand, this in turn helps to ensure an ongoing supply of cannabis products here in Australia."
"We are very encouraged by the support the government of Australia is providing domestic producers like Solaris Nutraceuticals," said Derek Ivany, President and CEO of PUF Ventures. "We expect significant value to be generated from our partnership in Solaris' proposed 1.2 million square-foot green house facility in northern New South Wales, which when complete will be the largest production facility in Australia. Australia has a small population and we expect the export of cannabis products to grow beyond current domestic sales of medicinal cannabis."
