Freedom Leaf Reports On Spanish Operations Were Well Received At InvestorsHub / MJAC2017 In Los Angeles
MJAC2017 Was The Perfect Occasion to Launch Our New JV with Wall Street Research ™, Alan Stone and to Meet with Prospective Investors
LAS VEGAS, NV–(Marketwired – Sep 7, 2017) – Freedom Leaf, Inc.™ (OTCQB: FRLF) The Marijuana Legalization Company™ and WallStreet Research ™ launched their Joint venture at Los Angeles’ Premium Investment Cannabis Event, the InvestorsHub / MJAC2017 on September 1st and 2nd.
Clifford J. Perry, Freedom Leaf co-founder and CEO explained, “The MJAC2017 was the perfect occasion to launch our new JV with Wall Street Research ™ and to meet with prospective investors, who were also very interested in our new ventures in Spain.”
As previously announced, Freedom Leaf and Green Market Europe have signed a letter of intent for Freedom Leaf to acquire 100% of GME including its IP, projects and assets. Freedom Leaf has paid the cash stipulated in the contract as a deposit towards the full transaction, and the acquisition is expected to close as soon as the legal and accounting review is completed within the next 30 days. Freedom Leaf has agreed to support the expansion of GME with two additional growing operations internationally before the end of 2019 to take advantage of the skills and the potential of the GME staff.
“This transaction with GME was found, nurtured and arranged by Mr. Federico Pando, respectfully known to everyone as “Fede”, the Managing Director of Freedom Leaf’s licensee in Spain. He also arranged our acquisition of LaMarihuana.com, known as a world leading Spanish language cannabis portal, and it will offer many new opportunities for us through the Intellectual Property generated, as well as products and services offered to our wide network of clients,” noted Perry. With its monthly unique visitors in excess of 1.5 million, it gives us a leg up on capturing the Worldwide Spanish speaking market.
Green Market Europe’s facilities include a 21,000-sq. ft. light deprivation greenhouse that allows increasing the number of crops per year, a 43,000-sq. ft. greenhouse and indoor growing facility for Genetic research.
GME is strategically located in Elche, Alicante, an important Spanish business hub, with great year-round weather conditions for agricultural growing and it is also a traditional Hemp growing region.
GME has a current collaboration agreement with local University of Miguel Hernandez to grow and develop an EU certified Hemp strain with high cannabidiol (CBD) content that can easily grow in the local climate, and for researching better methods for growing hemp.
The company has also applied to become a licensed Cannabis producer in Spain under the supervision of Spanish authorities and compliant with International Narcotic laws, and is collaborating with two privately owned European companies for product development and global marketing to provide a variety of Freedom Leaf branded products with Rare Cannabinoids, CBG, (Cannabigerol) in addition to its popular CBD, Cannabidiol.
Luis Miguel Santos, Founder of GME commented, “We are thrilled to be a part of the Freedom Leaf group and expect to benefit from our mutual collaboration in both the near term and into the future. We are confident Green Market Europe is already a very technically advanced hemp producer in Spain, but being a part of Freedom Leaf will help us become a company with global reach, expand operations overseas and maximize our know how and expertise required in such a versatile plant.”
The company is in negotiations to acquire participations in local $2M Food grade ethanol extraction plant that can extract up to 400 pounds of hemp fiber per batch, as well as from fruit and vegetable sources.
Consequently, the company also is also finalizing studies to produce either Freedom Leaf affiliated brands and/or white label CBD infused functional beverages such as water, beer, wine or pomegranate juice made in Europe and for potential licensed product development in North America.
