Chemesis International Inc. (CSE:CSI, OTC:CADMF)(the “Company” or “Chemesis”), announces it has entered into binding agreements to acquire 100% of a fully-operational extraction and manufacturing facility in Cathedral City, California (“Facility”).  Once completed, this transaction (“Acquisition”) will expand the Company’s processing ability to over 500,000 kg of cannabis annually. The new state-of-the-art facility is fully licensed, and the Acquisition is expected to double the Company’s current capacity to process large amounts of cannabis to extract THC, CBD and other cannabinoid and terpene products.

The Facility is located within close proximity to the Company’s existing licensed extraction facility, which commenced operations this quarter.  Upon completion, the Acquisition will permit the Company to operate two fully licensed and commercialized facilities, which is expected to streamline resources for the Company’s controlled expansion plan within the U.S.

The Acquisition will result in the Company acquiring control over the following licenses:

  • Cannabis Business Local License, #MCL-17-007-M-18
  • Cannabis Business Local License, #MCL-17-007-C-18
  • Type 7 Manufacturing License – Adult & Medical Cannabis Products, #CDPH-T00000362

Furthermore, the Company is exploring the possibility of processing hemp at the Facility for full spectrum plant extracts rich in CBD and leveraging the hemp legalization provisions of the 2018 U.S. Farm Bill to capitalize on the expected increased demand for CBD.  It has been estimated that the CBD market will have a value of over $2.1 billion by 20201. Legislation is currently pending in California that would accommodate incorporating hemp-derived cannabinoids and terpenes into the currently regulated cannabis supply chain (similar to neighboring legal cannabis states like Oregon), as well as non-THC-infused food, beverages and cosmetics.

“The Company will, upon completion of the Acquisition, significantly increase its production and manufacturing capabilities in the U.S.,” said CEO of Chemesis, Edgar Montero. “The addition of this new facility will allow the Company to extract high-quality cannabinoids and terpenes for use in a wide variety of consumer products.  Chemesis will then be able to leverage its existing expertise in extraction, distribution, and sales to continue growing revenues and build long-term value. I believe this expansion will open up considerable new revenue opportunities for the Company when we begin processing hemp,” added Montero.

Under the terms of this acquisition, Chemesis will pay $1,000,000 USD 90 days from closing and issue 4,600,000 shares. The stock is subject to 36-month lock-up/leak-out guidelines.  The Acquisition is expected to close on or about March 30, 2019.
