500,000 Sq Ft Of low cost and organic Cannabis Cultivation In Colombia

The Company’s cultivation operations are located in Santa Marta, Colombia. The Company holds controlling interest in two entities,

  • Sativa Nativa and
  • SMGH (indoor, greenhouse and outdoor)

Fully licensed to cultivate, process, extract and sell cannabinoid products and API.

In the first quarter of 2020, SMGH continued its indoor, greenhouse and outdoor cultivation at full capacity, focused on the production of

  • CBD and CBG isolates
  • Feminized hemp and cannabis seeds.


Unlike CBD, which has a relatively low affinity for cannabinoid receptors and acts mostly through indirect interactions with the endocannabinoid system, CBG is thought to elicit its therapeutic effects directly though interaction with the CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors in the brain.

The following table breaks down the current cultivation capacity, by site, for each of Sativa Nativa and SMGH.  




Avesta Genetica Program

75,000,000 Hemp Seeds Available For Export and Sale

Avesta Genetica is Avicanna’s seed and genetics program based out of SMGH in Santa Marta, Colombia. To date, a total of  30 commercial genetics have been registered with the required Colombian authorities. This allows the Company to sell both domestically and internationally.
