âThe cannabis companies of Canada need to understand that just because you are the biggest goldfish in the pond doesnât mean you shouldnât be concerned about the whales in the ocean. Everything in the Canadian cannabis industry is based off the cost being $2800 per litre for CBD oil. While international forces outside the Canadian bubble are able to produce 99.7% purity level at $102.50 USD per litre.â said Grant F Sanders, CEO, Instadose Pharma Corp., âWeâve kept our operations in the shadows due to concerns about the reaction of this news with licensed producers and the public investment sector. But now that our first crops are about to hit the markets in a few months, I think itâs about time the fish learned about the whale.â
To date, Grant has spent over $76 Million USD on building the current operation and is already in motion to expand production land to 250,000 hectares after the first 90,000 liters hit the Canadian market. IDP is currently in discussions with major pharmaceutical companies to assist with the release of the first batch imported into Canada.
Currently, the largest licensed producer of cannabis in Canada, Canopy, has approximately 40 hectares of production land. At 400 hectares, IDP has 10 times that amount of that in Colombia alone. According to Grant Sanders, Colombia was just not enough for them to be able to expand to their maximum potential. âWe quickly realized that growing there was not the smartest option and the production capacity and price that we could achieve in the DRC was 99% more beneficial, to both us and the end user,â said Sanders. âWhatâs about to happen to the market isnât a result of what weâre doing, itâs the result of what theyâre not. You canât blame Usain Bolt for being the fastest runner in the world just because youâre too slowâ.
