View Systems medical cannabis and hemp subsidiary, Sannabis S.A.S. are ready to launch their direct sales product line in Colombia and internationally. The first 9 products are ready to hit the market with a Health Registration from INVIMA, Colombia’s Health Authority.
"The first product line, Cannapiel, is ready to be manufactured by the Company’s laboratory in Bogota, Colombia," the team with the company explains. "The laboratory has passed all inspections with all the necessary registrations to begin making Cannabis products. These products will be sold directly to consumers by a network of direct sales consultants that are being trained at the Company’s recently announced new office and sales center in Cali, Colombia. Each consultant will be required to make a minimum initial purchase. Consultants will be given marketing material along with coupons to give to customers to visit doctors in the Sannabis network to prescribe their other line of homeopathic products."
"In addition to a major product launch in Colombia, the Company plans to export these products to the United States and around the World. In addition to passing through U.S. Customs, these cosmetic products will also need to be approved by the FDA for entry into the U.S. To the Company’s knowledge, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not yet regulate products derived from hemp grown in the U.S., since hemp is not yet regulated by the USDA. Sannabis’ INVIMA Health Registration should be accepted by the FDA for import to the U.S. giving the Company one of the few products on U.S. shelves recognized by the FDA. Sannabis distributors in the U.S. will use this as a selling point when approaching retailers wanting to carry hemp products, but not wanting to violate U.S. regulations."
Sannabis has completed construction of their greenhouses in Popayan, Colombia to house their seed bank. Now that the exterior structure is built, they will begin to purchase all the required equipment necessary for the interior.
"The Company applied for a Seed Bank license prior to December 31, 2018, no more applications for seed bank licenses are being accepted," the team with Sannabis explains. "A Seed Bank license in Colombia is one of the most coveted licenses in the global cannabis sector. Sannabis registered 160 strains and is working with Universidad del Cauca, the top University in Colombia’s major marijuana growing region. Sannabis and the University will be certifying the first 10 strains, 6 high in THC and 4 high in CBD. Sannabis’ license application for Psychoactive (THC) cultivation also allows for Non-Psychoactive (CBD) cultivation, therefore another license is not needed. "In addition to Colombia, Sannabis began hand planting hemp seeds in Uruguay from December 18- January 17."
