LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / March 16, 2021 / Cannabis Global, Inc. (OTC PINK:CBGL) ("Cannabis Global" or the "Company"), an emerging operator of disruptive businesses and technologies in the cannabis and hemp marketplace, announces today its cannabis product manufacturing initiative for its licensed facility at Lynwood, California, Natural Plant Extract (NPE). The Company plans to manufacture multiple types of cannabis products via its own brands and in partnership with other cannabis brands.

"This week marks an important milestone relative to our recent acquisition of a controlling position in NPE," commented CEO Arman Tabatabaei. "The facility is already manufacturing several types of cannabis edibles, and our plan is to quickly ramp up production of cannabis flower-based products and additional categories of edibles. We are expecting a busy next few months relative to our manufacturing calendar. We are also looking forward to fully consolidate NPE's income statement and balance sheet with Cannabis Global now that we have a controlling ownership interest in NPE. This should help boost our topline revenue significantly."

Cannabis Global believes the Lynwood facility is optimal for cannabis manufacturing and distribution. The site is approved for all types of cannabis manufacturing, included in the Type 7 license, which permits all types of solvents (including volatile) to extract cannabinoids from cannabis plant material. Local jurisdictions and the state of California severely restrict the issuance of type 7 licenses making ownership highly prized. Additionally, Lynwood offers one of the lowest city tax rates in the state of California with a 1.5% distribution tax and 2% manufacturing tax, making NPE more competitive than almost any other company in California with stronger margins.

Mr. Jim Riley, a member of the Cannabis Global board of directors and marketing consultant to the Company commented, "We have a synergistic plan for NPE in that most of the products we manufacture will also flow through our Northern Lights distribution operation, which is housed at the same facility. This will allow us to significantly increase our future revenue base and margin capture. With the Los Angeles and overall cannabis markets continuing to expand rapidly, we are optimistic about our future growth."

Last month, Cannabis Global increased its ownership stake to a 56.4% controlling interest in Natural Plant Extract. In addition to business opportunities available from product manufacturing and distribution to all parts of the State of California, Cannabis Global also sees strong synergies between the NPE operations and its developing technologies in the areas of secure cannabis transport, cannabis infusions, and all-natural polymeric nanoparticle technologies. Thus far, the Company has filed six provisional patents, three non-provisional patents and has recently announced its Comply Bag™ secure cannabis transport system with integrated track and trace capabilities via smartphones which will be available soon.

Cannabis Remains an Illegal Schedule 1 Drug Under Federal Law
Thirty-five states, including Colorado, the District of Columbia and four U.S. Territories currently have laws broadly legalizing cannabis in some form for either medicinal and/or recreational use governed by state specific laws and regulations. Although legalized in some states, cannabis is a "Schedule 1" drug under the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. § 811) ("CSA") and is illegal under federal law. Cannabis and its derivatives are viewed as being highly addictive and having no medical value. The United States Drug Enforcement Agency enforces the Controlled Substances Act, and persons violating it are subject to federal criminal prosecution.

As a result of the November, 2020 federal elections, and the election of Joseph R. Biden as president, it is expected that the federal government will move to amend parts of the CSA and de-schedule cannabis as a Schedule 1 drug.

In late January, 2021, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said lawmakers are in the process of merging various cannabis bills, including his own legalization legislation. He is working to enact reform in this Congressional session. This would include the Marijuana Freedom and Opportunity Act, that would federally de-schedule cannabis, reinvest tax revenue into communities most affected by the drug war, and fund efforts to expunge prior cannabis records. It is likely that the Marijuana Opportunity, Reinvestment, and Expungement (MORE) Act would be incorporated.

Other federal legislation under review for possible submission includes the SAFE Banking Act (or Secure and Fair Enforcement Act), a bill that would allow cannabis companies to access the federally-insured banking system and capital markets without the risk of federal enforcement action, and the Strengthening the Tenth Amendment Through Entrusting States Act (or STATES Act), a bill that seeks protections for businesses and individuals in states that have legalized and comply with state laws).
