LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / November 18, 2020 / Cannabis Global, Inc. (OTC PINK:CBGL), a cannabinoid and hemp extract science-forward company developing infusion and delivery technologies and investing in fast-growing cannabis markets, today announces its acquisition of Ethos Technology LLC, a Los Angeles startup specializing in ultra-secure cannabis transport containers for the commercial cultivation, processing and distribution markets. Cannabis Global plans to utilize this technology to market a line of secure transport products under the brand name Comply Bag.
Edward Manolos, founder of Ethos Technology and a director of Cannabis Global commented, 'Having opened the first medical marijuana dispensary in Los Angeles back in 2004, my organization has struggled with securely transporting cannabis. That's why we invented this unique transport technology. I firmly believe it is a product this booming industry needs and that it is specifically tailored to be compliant with the regulatory framework in California and across the entire United States. We look forward to introducing this proprietary cannabis transport system to current operators and especially to new market entrants in other states as the nationwide market opens up to regulated sales. My goal is to use our experiences, and this new technology, to revolutionize cannabis transport across America.'
Under the terms of the agreement, which closed on November 16, 2020, Cannabis Global acquired all technologies and products of Ethos for up to six million shares of restricted common stock to be paid out based on performance milestones achieved as this unique transport technology is rolled out into the licensed and regulated cannabis sector. Cannabis Global expects to begin offering the products on a nationwide basis over the next few months.
The Company believes the current generation of cannabis transport and security products has not advanced to keep pace with the industry. All states where cannabis has been legalized require cultivators, processors and distributors to track all shipments, and shippers need to ensure the exact contents of what is shipped to be received by the intended recipient. The new products to be released by Cannabis Global are designed to meet these needs.
Ethos Technology was founded by cannabis industry veteran, Edward Manolos. Mr. Manolos is one of the most accomplished pioneers in the medical marijuana industry, having opened the very first medical marijuana dispensary in Los Angeles County in 2004, called CMCA. He is also credited with starting Los Angeles' first medical marijuana farmers' market referred to as 'The California Heritage Market,' which attracted local and international media attention. As Mr. Manolos is the founder of Ethos Technology and a founding Director of the Company, the transaction is considered to be between related parties under Item 404 of Securities & Exchange Commission Regulation S-K Transactions with Related Parties.
