In terms of our individual areas of operation, our strategic objectives are as follows:
Following its hydrogen-nitrogen gas discovery in western Kansas, Zoetic explored the opportunity of utilising its gas mixture as an organic agricultural yield enhancer.
After the successful testing of its gas mixture on various agricultural products and the passage of 2018 U.S. Farm Bill, Zoetic decided to vertically integrate its gas with organic industrial hemp growing operations. The industrial hemp and the CBD derived from the industrial hemp are fully legal in the United States under the federal law and, likewise, the sale of CBD products in the UK is also permitted (subject to observing certain restrictions on THC content).
Zoetic aims to distinguish itself as a leading premium producer of CBD products in the United States and internationally.
In April, Zoetic signed its first commercial sale and distribution agreement with Schrader Oil and Ox Distributing to sell its first retail consumer products in 18 convenience and gas station stores in the State of Colorado. The first line of products sold in the stores will include pre-rolled CBD smokables, ready-roll papers and CBD chew pouches.
Zoetic and its distribution partners are actively working towards expanding their sale and distribution operations across the United States.
The company secured its initial organic hemp flowers from a local organic hemp farmer. Zoetic plans to grow approximately 30,000 annual plants from its indoor growing operations in De Beque, Colorado and initially plans to cultivate 16 acres of outdoor growing operations in Palisade, Colorado.
The Board believes that the Company’s yield-enhancing gas mixture, organic operations, all-season genetic testing and indoor growing facility will position the company to be a market leader in organic CBD products.
