In addition to the ongoing sharing of knowledge and expertise relating to hemp between the parties, Aramat has committed to grow industrial hemp to supply the R&D Division with hemp hurd and fibre for its ongoing research. The Company is currently sourcing a number of different varieties of industrial hemp seed that will be tested in an initial 1-2 hectare cultivation. GHG and Aramat are currently evaluating a number of proposed locations based on climate, soil and general growing conditions. A final location will be determined shortly.
This collaboration is part of the Company’s bigger vision to expand its collaboration partners while furthering development of Intellectual Property that can be patented, utilized by the Company and or marketed to the industry.
Aramat Querétaro is a civil organization, headquartered in the state of Querétaro, that is focused on the recognition of the substantive rights of cannabis users relating to recreational, medicinal and industrial cannabis. The club’s Mission is to promote health, legality, training and development in all aspects of cannabis. Prior to the organization’s official formation, Francisco Gerardo Martínez Ramos, Founder and President of Aramat Querétaro, first saw the need to study different treatments derived from cannabis aimed at helping patients with epilepsy.
Initially the group started out by having private events, with restricted access to close friends and relatives who sought to inform and express themselves and share their knowledge and experiences. Then in 2017 the group organized the first “Aramat Querétaro Cannabis Meeting", an event that has been held every year since, except for 2020 due to the ongoing pandemic. In 2019, the event was held at the Autonomous University of Querétaro, where it was free, open to the public, and had speakers from the medical, scientific, psychological and legal communities.
The group is made up of experts in the law, agriculture, biology, engineering, crop development and greenhouses, and have been providing comprehensive services for the preparation and development of cannabis projects. They have been establishing collaborations with doctors and pain clinics for consultation and participation of these experts in their public events which include interviews on local radio stations and in forums public. They have been working on the development of protocols, regulations and implementation of Mexican standards with Mexican companies that are committed to this new industry. In 2019 another facet emerged from the organization with the creation of the Aramat Cannabis Legal Consultancy. The Consultancy offers legal services in the areas of criminal, constitutional, administrative and corporate law to not only its members, but to the general public.
The group has derived great pleasure from the opportunity to share their knowledge with many communities in regions throughout the country. This has allowed Aramat Querétaro to develop projects that further the legal cannabis industry in Mexico. They have also been published in one the highest circulation cannabis related magazines in Latin America and Spain.
Francisco Gerardo Martinez Ramos, President of Aramat Queretaro stated, “We are a small club in the number of members, but large, due to the principles, values and professional knowledge of each one.”
