Colombian medicinal grade cannabis flower now legal to export

  • Companies are now permitted to export flower as a finished product 
  • Plena’s LATAM strategy continues to gain momentum with first mover advantage for export of premium cannabis flower under new decree


Plena Global Holdings Inc. (“Plena Global” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that on July 23rd, 2021, the Colombian President Iván Duque Marquez signed a new master decree for the cannabis industry.  

The new decree replaces the existing decree 613 (2017) and establishes a legal framework for the export of cannabis flower for medical and scientific purposes. The decree also regulates the domestic commercialization of CBD in a range of OTC wellness products and encourages the development of a domestic CBD infused food and beverage market. There are also important changes on the use of cannabinoids for veterinary use opening yet another lucrative product category.  

 The changes follow months of successful lobbying by members of the Asocolcanna – the Colombian Cannabis Association. 

 According to data of the German Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM) in 2020 Germany imported over 6 tons of dry medical cannabis flower for pharmacy dispensing. Sales of dry medical cannabis flowers are legal in many countries, including Australia, New Zealand, Canada, United Kingdom, Portugal, Czech Republic, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Poland.  

As a result of the enactment of the new legislation, as one of the leading Colombian cultivators at scale Plena is now uniquely positioned with first-mover advantage to access certain global markets with premium medical cannabis flower due to early investment in high-tech Richel Greenhouse and its Control Union CUMCS-GACP certification, one of the only Colombian cultivators to achieve this certification. 

 Plena is currently taking pre-orders from authorized global parties with respect to premium medical cannabis flower and encourages all interested parties to contact the Plena sales team at the contacts below.
