Gabriella's Kitchen Inc. Discusses Proposed Changes to California's Cannabis Regulations, Jeff Sessions' Resignation as US Attorney General and Other Legal Developments

2018-11-09 09:00:27


CALGARY and SANTA ROSA, CA, Nov. 9, 2018 /CNW/ - Gabriella's Kitchen Inc. (the "Company" or "GABY") (CSE: GABY) today provided comments to shareholders on recent changes in United States cannabis regulations, plus other national and international developments in the cannabis sector.

GABY commented to shareholders today on recent draft regulations that have been released by the California Bureau of Cannabis Control ("CBCC") which prohibit white labelling and co-packing of cannabis infused products for companies not holding a license issued by the CBCC.  If passed, brands not holding a manufacturing license would not be allowed to manufacture infused products for sale in the state of California.  GABY recently acquired two cannabis licenses, a manufacturing license through its acquisition of The Oil Plant and a distribution license through its acquisition of Sonoma Pacific Distribution (both issued by the CBCC).

"It has always been part of GABY's strategy to own its infrastructure in California and to control its product development and sales cycle" said Margot Micallef, Founder & CEO of GABY. "With these two licenses GABY is protected from the vagaries of legislative changes such as those draft regulations recently introduced" she added.

"While we do not want to see any of the great brands offered in California cut off from being able to access the California markets - to the degree that it makes sense - we are poised to acquire such brands who wish to partner with GABY to protect their market share through GABY's manufacturing license and to expand with GABY's mainstream and licensed distribution infrastructure"  Ms. Micallef concluded.
