Vinzan International is a global cannabis trading company with operations in Laos, Thailand, and Colombia. These three markets were identified because of their low cost of production, legal cannabis framework, and ideal cultivation climate. The Vinzan team embraces the 150-year old physical commodity-trading model used by the world’s largest agriculture companies. Using contract farming, Vinzan offtakes hemp and cannabis from cultivation partners and processes them in world-class facilities at above eGMP standards. The product in extract or final form is then shipped to top-tier international partners in key regions.
Vinzan is currently allocating 280,000kg of product through 5-year supply agreements. Using encrypted extraction on cloud technology with leading edge processing and extraction systems, Vinzan’s facilities are equipped with the latest and best industrial components for maximum throughput and systems dependability. Our regional cultivation partners are provided with seeds from the Vinzan genetics program that are grown and developed under an IP growth management plan for each country of operation for maximum yield and consistency.
With global headquarters in Toronto, Canada, the Vinzan International team brings years of experience in cannabis, capital markets and global physical commodity trading
