Xebra finalizes acquisition of Mexican player

"We are working quickly to capitalize on our first mover advantage"

Xebra Brands has fully satisfied the terms of the 100% acquisition of Desart MX. 

Desart has been granted an injunction by the Mexican Supreme Court, that has positioned it with an outright first-mover-advantage in the Mexican CBD and CBG market. Official licenses will be granted by the Mexican Health Regulatory Agency in due-course. The Supreme Court decision is irrevocable and cannot be appealed.

Xebra is moving quickly to capitalize on its first mover advantage. Discussions are underway to secure up to 300 hectares of suitable land for cultivation, and multiple Canadian and American companies with cannabis processing and extraction expertise have expressed an interest in partnering in Mexico. Manufacturing joint-venture opportunities with established Mexican parties have been identified, and distribution channels are being explored.

Xebra injunction applies specifically to the industrial cannabis sector, and explicitly to cannabis with low-levels of THC (under 1%), therefore, in practical terms, to hemp cultivation and processing, and to the manufacture and sale of mainly CBD and CBG products, such as tinctures, oils, topicals, edibles, beverages, concentrates, distillates, emulsions, and biomass etc., and certain uses of the cannabis flower.

Xebra believes Mexico has the potential to be one of the largest near-term country cannabis consumer markets in the world. Mexico is also within the North American free trade zone, giving it considerable cultivation and product manufacturing cost advantages over Canada and the United States. Xebra is of the opinion that there is sufficient precedent with many agricultural crops and manufactured products, to suggest that there is a possibility that ultimately the majority of North American industrial scale cannabis production activity will occur in Mexico.
