Clever Leaves, a vertically-integrated Colombian licensed producer of pharmaceutical-grade medical marijuana, will announce later today that it will become the first Colombian company authorized to export cannabis into Canada. Meanwhile, Khiron Life Sciences Corp., a Colombia-based integrated cannabis company with branded urgent-care-like clinics, announced a partnership with U.S.-based cannabis company Dixie, last week. Canadian-owned, Colombia-based cannabis company PharmaCielo, has an export license for medical marijuana oils. The moves by all three Colombian companies position Latin America to join in the global cannabis supply chain officially.
Health Canada, the government agency responsible for national public health and oversight of the medical cannabis industry has issued six authorizations to Clever Leaves on January 16, which allow the brand to import dry cannabis flower from Columbia, into Canada for scientific purposes.
