Canbud Distribution Corp. (CSE: CBDX) (FSE: CD0) (the "Corporation" or "Canbud") Management would like to provide the following update on the developments in the Jamaican operations.

On December 7, 2020, Canbud announced that it had entered into a definitive agreement dated December 4, 2020 to acquire 100% of the issued and outstanding securities of 2688453 Ontario Ltd. in exchange for 7,600,000 common shares at a deemed price per share equal to 19.5 cents.

In furtherance of the agreement, the Company issued 1,520,000 shares (representing 20% of the consideration shares) on January 5, 2021. The agreement contemplated material capital investment (in excess of US$3.5 million) by the Company, over the course of a three-year period, to build and operate a commercial production supported by local staff and establish a retreat facility.

During the subsequent period, the company completed the manufacturing and installation of the initial production facility in Jamaica at a cost of US$49,000 and entered into an MOU with the College of Agriculture, Science and Education ("CASE") to focus on the research and development of healing practices facilitated by psilocybin producing mushrooms.

Following a review process undertaken by management and approved by the Board, the Company has determined that the current and anticipated commercial state of the psychedelics market over the 18 to 24 month period will continue to remain sluggish and anticipated economic benefits of Canbud's commercialization plan are not-conducive to continued financial commitment for the project at this time other than the research and development project which requires a financial commitment of up to CA$10,000 over the next 12-month period. As a result, Canbud and 2688453 Ontario Ltd. have agreed to a mutual termination of the 'agreement' entered into on December 4, 2020, whereby the Company has agreed to issue 3,040,000 common shares to cancel the agreement (at a deemed price per share equal to $0.05 or a total price of CA$152,000). The shares to be issued as part of the termination agreement will remain in escrow and released in 3 different tranches during 2022.

Canbud continues to monitor the potential opportunities in the psychedelics market, in keeping with its continued commitment to research and development at this time. The facility is currently on the site assigned by CASE, with management of the facility under the research in-charge at CASE. The Company expects a more focused and cautionary approach from a capital allocation perspective, which will enable the Company to support the high growth areas of the business

Food Security is Key to Agricultural Investing — Here’s Why

Food Security is Key to Agricultural Investing — Here’s Why

What is food security, and how does it relate to agricultural investing? For investors interested in making a profit — and a difference in the world — those two questions are worth answering.

Investors may be unfamiliar with the term food security, especially when combined with agricultural investing, but it’s simple to define. The UN Committee on World Food Security describes food security as “the condition in which all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient safe and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life.”

As that definition shows, there are both nutritional and economic aspects to food security. In fact, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has outlined four dimensions of food security: food utilization, physical availability of food, economic and physical access to food and stability of the first three factors over time.
