United Cannabis' joint venture, Jamaica-based Cannabinoid Research & Development, has been issued a license to cultivate cannabis within Jamaica by the country’s Cannabis Licensing Authority (CLA).
Earnest Blackmon, Chief Executive Officer of United Cannabis, commented on the announcement, “Jamaica represents a significant market opportunity and United Cannabis has made a material investment in building the foundation necessary to launch a full-scale operation there. The granting of this license is confirmation from the CLA that we are on our way. I am confident that our outstanding applications will be approved shortly, and we look forward to establishing Jamaica as the production hub for international distribution of United Cannabis products.”
Vivia Brown, a Director of CRD, commented on the announcement, “We are indeed grateful to finally receive official approval of our cultivation license. This has been a long time coming, but it has happened.”
Brown continued, “I’d like to thank the Cannabis Licensing Authority for their diligence and patience throughout this process. To our partners at United Cannabis, words are not sufficient to express our deepest gratitude. Thank you for your belief and trust. From here onwards, the sky will be our only limit.”
