About Cannabis BioCare
Cannabis Biocare is founded by Mr. Gerhard Ludvigsen, Mr. Yossef A. Hamdon and Mr. Mohamed Choucair. Mr. Ludvigsen is founder and current director of HEMLA, a Norwegian group with multiple decades of experience from energy related operations in Central Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Mr. Ludvigsen brings substantial experience in the gas sector. For information about HEMLA, visit http://www.hemla.no.
Mr. Ludvigsen stated “our organization has quietly and patiently conducted research as a pre-cursor to entry into the global cannabis marketplace. Our due diligence process has been exhaustive and has involved conversations with several Canadian cannabis companies including five companies with market capitalizations in the billions of dollars. Ultimately, we chose to partner with one of the most scientific, innovative and fundamentally sound cannabis projects worldwide, namely RavenQuest BioMed.”
The RavenQuest BioMed/Cannabis Biocare JV will be created with the sole purpose of conducting an orderly multinational expansion through all regions where HEMLA has boots on the ground. Initial production will focus upon the Balkans/Europe with subsequent expansion into East Africa, West Africa and the Middle East.
RavenQuest CEO, George Robinson, stated “Mr. Gerhard Ludvigsen is a highly esteemed and much-respected business leader in the European market and around the world. We couldn’t be happier to be partnering with such a first-class individual and his impressive team. We are very excited to take our company’s disruptive technology into new markets starting with Europe. It’s notable that we are able to do so without any immediate cash outlay.”
“Amid a flurry of international expansion throughout the cannabis industry, it was important for our organization to take the time and due diligence to select bona fide business partners of the very highest caliber in our overseas endeavors. It’s clear that in Mr. Ludvigsen and his team, we have such a partner. We bring to this partnership our veteran cannabis experience, technology and facility design, which is complemented beautifully by Cannabis Biocare’s capital and geographic reach. This is an excellent fit for both parties and we couldn’t be more excited to begin our expansion into international markets in a prudent manner with a highly-respected business partner,” Robinson continued.
The entering into of the JV remains subject to a number of conditions, including finalization of a corporate structure and negotiation of definitive documentation to give effect to the JV. Readers are cautioned that there can be no guarantee that the JV venture will be completed as planned. Further information will be provided as soon as it becomes available.
