Located near the equator, Colombia enjoys strong sunlight, fertile soil, ample natural rainfall. The 12-hour day / night light cycle and consistent temperatures year-round readily allow for four cannabis crops per year. Add to these ideal environmental conditions the nation’s decades-long status among the world’s top cut-flower providers, which created both a ready skilled work force and the infrastructure and trade agreements to ship flowers – including cannabis flower products – efficiently and economically to destinations worldwide.
Like Canada, the Colombian government was among the first in the world to recognize and embrace the potential benefits to the country of legalizing and regulating a national medical-cannabis industry. Reflecting its ongoing support for the industry’s progress, in 2020 PharmaCielo was identified as a “Project of National Strategic Interest,” enabling the company to receive immediate support from the Colombian government in recognition of its economic contribution and importance to the nation.
