The test conducted by a licensed medical marijuana testing facility showed a high 35% THC value as well as a .2% B-Caryophyllene terpene value. This combination is exceptional in treating a wide variety of ailments and gives the Company a better understanding of why this extract has worked so well for patients in Colombia, specifically for cancer and neurological disorders. The Company is using this and other test results to develop more medicines targeting different ailments. According to published reports posted on the National Institute of Health's Library of Medicine this terpene has the following potential medical benefits:
These results will be used by New Colombia Resources to develop a drug master file to be used for an application to the FDA for an orphan drug designation for a neurological disorder. New Colombia Resources' FDA consultant, Dr. Stanley Satz, believes the HPLC chromatograms of the peaks show great promise to develop a pharmaceutical product to treat various neurological disorders to be announced soon. Company President, John Campo, met with Dr. Satz recently to take the steps necessary to file for an orphan drug application as soon as possible. Mr. Campo is back in Colombia today to coordinate with the Universities that will help conduct the research under the guidance of Dr. Satz, who recently has been awarded another orphan drug designation with the FDA and fully understands the steps needed to gain acceptance of the application.
In addition to the FDA pharmaceutical drug being developed, Sannabis has been producing medical marijuana products sold through independent distributors and pharmacies throughout Colombia since 2014. New Colombia Resources' President, John Campo, was featured in an article in Dinero Magazine in 2014 at the beginning of Colombia's medical marijuana movement, since then medical marijuana has been legalized by both a Presidential executive order and a law passed by the legislature.

New Colombia Resources is applying to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for an orphan drug designation of a cannabis based pharmaceutical product with clinical trials to be done in Colombia, they will work with Universities in Colombia and the U.S. to conduct research to be admitted to the FDA.
Sannabis has geared up for a major international expansion by planting thousands of plants of exclusive medical marijuana strains native to Colombia. These strains include the world famous Sativas, Punto Rojo and Mango Biche, these landrace strains are sought out by top European seed banks, however, in order for these strains to flourish and provide the most valuable terpenes and cannabinoids they must be grown in their native environment.
The U.S. and Canada do not have native landrace strains, therefore, Sannabis will aggressively penetrate the North American market to supply the best medicine available at the best value to Americans. Several documentaries by international producers are being filmed in the coming weeks that will educate the world on the medicinal and social value of Colombian cannabis. Inquiries are pouring in from all over the world and the Company has ramped up to fulfill orders.
