LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / March 31, 2021 / Cannabis Global, Inc. (OTC PINK:CBGL), an innovation-oriented company involved in disruptive areas of the cannabis and hemp-related industries, today announces the commencement of production of Northern Lights branded cannabis products beginning April 1st. The Company recently acquired a controlling interest in Natural Plant Extract (NPE), a licensed cannabis manufacturing and distribution operation in Lynwood, California, a suburb of Los Angeles. Manufacturing at the facility will include several new lines of cannabis edibles and cannabis flower-based products.

Arman Tabatabaei, CEO of Cannabis Global commented, "Several of the products we will be producing at NPE are based on unique technologies, including our inventions previously utilized for our hemp-based products. We also plan to utilize the new facility as a testbed to continue research and development efforts relative to our polymeric nanotechnologies, which are designed utilizing only natural ingredients. We feel strongly cannabis-related consumer markets will continue to demand cleaner labels, which we feel our unique and patent-pending technologies will be able to provide."

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.

In February, 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 California, Cannabis Global also sees strong synergies between the NPE operations and its developing technologies in the areas of secure cannabis transport cannabis and cannabis infusions for both edible and flower-based products. 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).
