Allied Corp. has completed the first shipment of commercial dried cannabis from Colombia to an international market.
On April 1, 2022 Colombia enacted the new legislation allowing for the legal export of dried cannabis produced in Colombia. In April 2022, Allied submitted several applications for export approvals. After many levels of regulatory inspections, analyses, discussions and questions, Allied’s first export approval came in June 2022. Allied has now executed on navigating the production, regulatory and transport logistics needed to ship the first commercial cannabis flower grown in Colombia and sold into an international market.
The supply contract for this first shipment is for 500kgs monthly and the first quantity shipped on June 28, 2022 was 200kg. The strain profile for this shipment is 18% CBD with THC levels that are under 0.3% THC (which is the legal limit within the United States).
“We did it! We are the first company to ship a commercial shipment of dried cannabis to an international market. This accomplishment speaks to the quality of our team, and most importantly our product. 2 years of genotyping and phenotyping has led us to our current genetics that are proving to be superior in terms of cannabinoid profiles, as well as being pest and mold resistant. Our certificates of analyses validate this. This has been no easy feat. With this proven accomplishment we are now focused on fulfilling the additional signed purchase contracts and growing the international relationships with companies all over the world.” said Calum Hughes, CEO and Chairman of the Board.
