Michael Mayes & his team at Quantum 9 master the intimate & nuanced details required to win cannabis licenses around the world, and is truly one of the most influential voices cannabis consulting...— Matthew KindCHICAGO, ILLINOIS, U.S.A, October 20, 2016 / -- For Immediate Release: Matthew Kind sat down with Michael Mayes, CEO of Quantum 9, to chat with him about his latest international cannabis consulting and how difficult it is to obtain licenses in merit-based states and countries. He speaks about his experiences with the Pennsylvania, German, Illinois and Kentucky governments in his podcast found here:

"Regulators have worked with my team to help them understand the impacts of decisions. For example, the German Ministry wanted to enforcement a nanogram limit to drivers inferring impairment. We work as a subject matter expert and help them see how different models work. In Jamaica, it was essential to ensure that the Jamaicans were able to continue to provide a living as they are farmers growing a crop."

Michael discusses the nuances of applying for a cannabis cultivation, processing, and dispensing permit. He goes on to discuss some of the biggest players in the international import and export cannabis market.
"Importation has been increasing in popularity. A dominate player in the market today is Tilray in British Columbia. They received permission in June to export cannabis to Croatia. Tilray, which is owned by Privateer in Seattle, hopes this will make up for the struggling Canadian market. Tilray also indicated that they would be sending products to Australia."
Michael explains the differences in the North American and International Cannabis markets. "Michael Mayes and his team at Quantum 9 master the intimate and nuanced details required to win cannabis licenses around the world, he is truly one of the most influential voices in international cannabis consulting," says Matthew Kind. They explore the differences in the German, Colombian, Puerto Rican, and Canadian markets.

"Canada has a unique model, 100% mail order today. The new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is very motivated to get cannabis legalized for adult use, in his campaign he regularly spoke about his intentions around adult use. Australia began gaining traction in the Northern and Southern Territories. It is legal for medical purposes in Victoria and New South Wales. Colombia has now made huge gains in the manufacturing and exportation modeling. Jamaica has had some movement on the legalization front, which we all saw coming. Many people still don’t know it is legal to consume cannabis in private areas in Spain."

Quantum 9 has now turned their focus to the Pennsylvania market to provide expert cannabis consulting and have begun engaging their marijuana consultants for licensing and permitting work.
