Here's what marijuana stocks must do to sell pot from Colombia

As more investors in marijuana stocks turn to Latin America, Colombia has churned out more than 200 cultivation licenses to marijuana companies doing business there. But those companies need to make their way through a labyrinthine approval process before they can legally sell any product domestically or abroad.

After that, the process of actually exporting cannabis requires a lot of changes to meet requirements of regulators and authorities on both ends of the deal, and even the airline flying the products itself.

Medicinal cannabis could bring in $6 billion a year for Colombia, government says

Colombia could export $6 billion a year in medicinal cannabis products, making marijuana its third-largest source of foreign exchange, the government said on Thursday, as investors called for simpler regulations for marijuana producers.

Colombian law already regulates the possession, production, distribution, sale and export of seeds and other marijuana products like oils and creams, but investors say the export approval process is tortuous.

“It’s possible to be a very important player at an international level in terms of exports. The estimates show we could effectively be at the level of $6 billion annually,” commerce vice minister Saul Pineda told attendees at the country’s first annual cannabis conference.

Why the future marijuana superpower could come from this region

When PharmaCielo, now a publicly traded company, formed in 2014 to cultivate medical cannabis in Colombia, some growers needed convincing. Some came from families that farmed chrysanthemums for generations. Cannabis was largely illegal and stigmatized. Scars from the nation's decadeslong drug war were fresh. A peace deal between the government and leftist FARC rebels was two years away. North America's marijuana stocks boom had not begun.

The evolving tapestry of cannabis regulation in Colombia

Colombia is synonymous with cannabis farming, but are there more challenges creating cannabis regulation than it would appear?

For Canada’s leading cannabis producers, Colombia has emerged as the choice location for outsourced production. With an equatorial climate and mountainous topography, the country provides a steady 12 hours of sunlight per day as well as a wide range of growing altitudes. An inexpensive and plentiful labour force – many with experience in a world-leading flowers-for-export industry – means that companies estimate future Colombian production costs of $0.50 (~€0.45) to $0.80 per gram of dry cannabis flower, compared to over $2 in Canada. So, where does cannabis regulation come in to play?
