KEY AREAS OF FUTURE DEVELOPMENT
CANADIAN MARKET EXPANSION – Revitalize Earth is also looking to expand its footprint of medical and recreational cannabis products within the Canadian market, by emulating their online dispensary model in Canada. In addition, adding other verticals in the sector such supplying cannabis pre-rolls, edibles, and a range of Belgian chocolates infused with psilocybin to the wholesale sector.
PORTUGAL & EUROPEAN MARKET ACCESS – On a wider geographic level, Revitalize Earth has acquired a 1,500-acre parcel of land in Portugal to cater for the European market, which is just beginning to see sales of CBD with Germany and Greece now offering medical cannabis products with high levels of THC for medical use. This trend is set to continue across much of Europe over the coming years. The Company believes it can establish a strong footprint in this market, a market very much in its infancy, by utilizing experience it has gained from its U.S. operations. The farm is expected to have multiple revenue streams from the sale of raw material in Europe, as well as having a processing facility on site, for the manufacture of products to be sold in Portugal and across Europe.
According to Infarmed (National Authority of Medicines and Health Products, I.P., the medical cannabis licensing authority which also controls the medical sector in Portugal), there are currently 20 business activities licensed in the sector in Portugal. The Company's license is currently pending and is expected to be issued this fall. Once licensed, the Company will enter the expanding medical side of the cannabis business in Europe with a plan to have pain management centres starting in Portugal, working in conjunction with Infarmed. From there, the Company expects to expand its business by rolling out locations across Europe. CLICK HERE to view a presentation on the Portugal business segment.
NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICES (NHS) – UNITED KINGDOM – The Directors of Revitalize Earth have been working with the NHS over the last year, with the goal of getting a license in the UK to supply the General Practitioners (GP's) who hold a license which allows them to prescribe medical cannabis to patients where they think it would be beneficial as a treatment. This contract with the NHS, when granted, could prove to be incredibly valuable for the Company in the long term, as it would be supplying one of the largest government owned healthcare operators in the world.
True North Testing – Cannabis Testing Labs (multiple locations worldwide) – Revitalize Earth is looking to establish testing laboratories under license from governments in Thailand, Costa Rica, and Portugal. The labs would be for the testing of cannabis under government supervision to establish THC values as well as collating valuable data from the plant and users, which in the future will be used by both governments and Pharma as these products go more mainstream.

HEMP DERIVED PRODUCTS – Revitalize Earth is looking to expand its marketing reach into hemp derived products in the future using its waste materials for hempcrete and bio plastics. GHG's R&D Division will help expand this market. In addition, the Company is looking at the dietary use of hemp, such as hemp milk, which is a product gaining popularity in both the U.S. and Europe. Sales on their e-commerce site has been growing steadily over the last year. Revenues on the site are expected to continue to increase with the addition of more CBD orientated products that will be targeted to markets throughout the U.S. and Canada.
