KELOWNA, British Columbia, April 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Allied Corp. (“Allied” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: ALID) is pleased to congratulate the Colombian government on the final approval of Regulation 227 (the “Regulation”) which outlines the technical guidelines for the export of cannabis flowers from Colombia.
On July 23, 2021, the President of Colombia, President Ivan Duque, signed Executive Order 811 lifting the ban on the export of dried cannabis flowers from Colombia.
In October 2021, Allied was invited to provide a first comment on the settlement, and then in November 2021, a second comment. On February 20, 2022, Regulation 227 was officially announced by the President of Colombia introducing the practical regulation and implementation plan for the export of cannabis flower.
On April 1, 2022, the Colombian government published the final approval of the technical guidelines necessary for the export of cannabis flower. This, among other significant advancements, will allow Allied to begin exporting dried cannabis flower internationally to countries where it is legal to do so. It should be noted that the United States still has a legal limit of 0.3% THC.
While only a few Colombian companies have managed to export cannabis derivatives such as CBD distillate and isolate, until now the export of dried flowers from Colombia has been prohibited. Allied has successfully shipped to several international markets and will now submit several export applications for dried cannabis flower destined for international markets.
“Dried cannabis flower is the fastest growing product segment of the global multi-billion dollar cannabis industry (Source: Fortune Business Insights). Unlike processed products such as isolate, dried flower high quality cannabis must come to market with the aesthetics and terpene/cannabinoid profile the customer desires. This is where Allied excels. We are excited to take immediate action with our first shipments of cannabis flower from Colombia to international markets,” said Mr. Calum Hughes, CEO and President of Allied Corp.
