Cannabis Sativa Inc (OTCMKTS:CBDS) lost 100% in overall value over the last 6 weeks trading from $6.20 to $3.20 culminating a very tough May for shareholders, and in total 2017 has been a disappointing year. CBDS started out in January like many cannabis stocks with a nice rally and have been in decline mode since. This is not just Cannabis Sativa shares, but nearly every stock in the sector has been under pressure. CBDS has some recent press and it is worth reviewing some of the acquisitions as shares seem to be finding a bottom after the May sell off.
They entered into an agreement to acquire a 49% ownership interest in a 9-acre property in Los Angeles County, California. The ownership group plans to lease the property to an industrial hemp farm operator who will conduct farming activities under the Industrial Hemp provisions of California’s Adult Use Marijuana Act (Prop 64). The Company’s President David Tobias stated, “We are excited to play a role in what we anticipate will be one of California’s first hemp farms under Prop 64.” The farm will produce organic industrial hemp derived products. It is anticipated that the farm will fill part of the Company’s demand for industrial hemp based products, with California grown organic industrial hemp. Farming activities are expected to commence in January of 2017.
