As 1 of only 5 companies to be selected by the Dutch government to participate in a medicinal cannabis cultivation pilot trial, Xebra is endeavoring to be awarded 1 of 2 licenses, with a contract for up to 6 years, providing for revenues of up to ~US$80 million (€70.5 million), to co-supply all pharma-grade cannabis to be sold though pharmacies in the Netherlands

The selection process includes the submission of samples from three cannabis trial crops, evaluated for certain criteria, including consistency and technical parameters."We are extremely pleased with our smooth and successful results to date, as we carefully monitor every growth stage,"commented Rodrigo Gallardo, President of Xebra. "Our innovated equipment made it possible for us to automate much of the growing process from germination to flowering, ensuring maximum consistency,"further commented Mr. Gallardo.

Cultivation in the Netherlands is conducted in Xebra's indoor facility. Xebra's specific genetic varieties are characterized by high production, compact flowers of excellent quality and fine tasting terpene profiles, with a growth cycle of 12-16 weeks.

Xebra's Director of Operations in the Netherlands, Harry von Duijne, is a cannabis horticulture expert with more than two decades of horticulture experience. He had a leading role at Bedrocan NL® from 2014 and 2017, where he was responsible for managing every aspect of operations of a state-of-the-art cannabis facility, from construction through cultivation and processing, quality management, and GMP certification. Bedrocan® produces medicinal-grade cannabis under contract for the Dutch Ministry of Health as the only licensed producer in the Netherlands, and for many years was the only licenced producer in all of Europe.
