TGOD's cannabis flower will be the first to be distributed legally in the country at a commercial scale. Its products received the approval of the South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA). This illustrates the value of TGOD's organic portfolio and bolsters its position in securing international market access. TGOD continues to see demand and opportunities for superior quality, high potency, and consistent products, which the CleanCraft™ processes enable TGOD to deliver.
"This is an important milestone in our strategy to export our certified organically grown medical cannabis products to international markets. We are confident that our in-country partner will continue to develop this nascent market and that TGOD's portfolio of products will be well received by patients that have previously lacked access to legal, high-quality medical cannabis " commented Sean Bovingdon, TGOD's CEO and Interim CFO. "We are pleased to be able to complete our first shipment mid-Q3 2021, in line with our corporate objectives. This is setting the base for our large-scale commercialisation into the international market in 2022," added Bovingdon.
