Colombian company Medcolcanna Organics Inc. Canadian announces the execution of an extraction service agreement with an International Cannabis Company, a company with formulations for health and wellness applications, for depression, anxiety and PTSD, which also has cultivation operations in Colombia.
"The execution of this commercial extraction agreement is a significant milestone for us. This is the first commercial third-party extraction services agreement that has been executed after we began offering extraction services to third parties in May 2021," MCCN says. The company is offering commercial third-party extraction services through its wholly owned subsidiary, Extralia Labs. To perform on this agreement, MCCN will utilize its different extraction lines and will transform biomass into CBD isolates. "MCCN has demonstrated its extraction expertise and ability to deliver the desired quality of refined cannabis products", they say.
MCCN’s extraction facilities have the capacity to process up to 800 tons of dried biomass per year. MCCN has two extraction facility locations, the first is located near Bogota, the capital of Colombia, the second is located near the city of Neiva, Colombia.
This facility will also begin extraction operations within the next 60 days for MCCN’s own cultivation in Neiva, and hopefully service third parties that are in negotiations for final terms. MCCN currently offers extraction, distillation, and crystallizations; all three processes are available to Colombian cultivators.
The counterparty to the Commercial extraction services agreement is an International Cannabis Company with formulations for health and wellness applications, for depression, anxiety and PTSD, and with cultivation operations in Colombia. The International Cannabis Company will be delivering between 2,500 to 4,500 kilograms of dried cannabis biomass to MCCN extraction facilities every three months.
The deliveries will occur monthly and scheduled with a program that will be revised for the quantity every three months. The International Cannabis Company has also announced recently that they wish to rapidly scale their Colombian production, which would also rapidly increase the amount of biomass that would require extraction.
The payment has been agreed in a percentage of the production that will be calculated based on the final potency of the biomass.
MCCN expects to generate revenue through selling the product that it receives through extraction services by exporting the product to its operating trading arm based in Switzerland. Recently, all products that have been supplied to MCCN Switzerland have been sold to third parties in different European countries.
The first 1,200kg of biomass was immediately delivered to the MCCN Extraction facilities, upon the execution of the agreement. MCCN will begin the extraction process upon the receipt of the dried biomass. It is expected that this first delivery will generate a revenue of approximately USD $20,000 after completion of extraction processes and the selling of product produced, and, with current negotiations, MCCN expects that its extraction subsidiary will become self-sustainable and profitable during the third quarter of 2021.
