UNITED CANNABIS CORPORATION

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS




NOTE 1 –BUSINESS ORGANIZATION AND NATURE OF OPERATIONS


United Cannabis Corporation ("we", "our", "us", "UCANN", or “the Company”) a Colorado corporation, was originally formed as a California corporation under the name MySkin, Inc. on November 15, 2007. MySkin was engaged in the business of providing management services to a medical spa in Los Angeles, California which provided various advanced skin care services until March 31, 2014, when this business was sold to the prior President of the Company.


In early 2014 we decided to exit the medical spa management business and change our focus to providing products, services and intellectual property to the cannabis industry.


On March 26, 2014, we entered into a License Agreement with Earnest Blackmon, Tony Verzura and Chad Ruby pursuant to which Messrs. Blackmon, Verzura and Ruby licensed certain intellectual property to us in exchange for a total of 38,690,000 shares of our common stock.


In connection with this transaction:


·

Messrs. Blackmon, Verzura and Ruby licensed to us all of their knowledge and know-how relating to the design and buildout of cultivation facilities, growing/cultivation systems, seed-to-sale protocols and procedures, products, a genetic catalogue including over 150 different strains, an advanced cannabinoid therapy program called "A.C.T. Now", security, regulatory compliance, and other methods and processes which relate to the cannabis industry.

 

 

·

The territory for this license is the entire world and the license runs in perpetuity. There are no royalty payments under the License Agreement.

 

 

·

Messrs. Blackmon, Verzura and Ruby were appointed to our board of directors effective April 7, 2014.

 

 

·

Mr. Blackmon was elected as our President; Mr. Ruby was elected as Chief Operating Officer and Mr. Verzura was elected as Vice President.

 

 

·

A total of 41,690,000 previously outstanding shares of common stock were cancelled resulting in a total of 43,620,000 shares of common stock outstanding on March 26, 2014.


UCANN was formed as a Colorado corporation on March 25, 2014, and on May 2, 2014, MySkin, Inc. merged into UCANN, a wholly-owned subsidiary of MySkin, Inc., for the purpose of changing domicile from California to Colorado and changing the corporation's name to United Cannabis Corporation.


On March 31, 2014, we sold all right, title and interest in the tangible and intangible assets, trademarks, customer lists, intellectual property and rights, which we owned and were related to our advanced skin care business since we entered into a new business and no longer had any use for these assets. The assets were sold to MySkin Services, Inc. (“MTA”), a business partly owned by Marichelle Stoppenhagen, our former officer and director, in exchange for the $15,000 payable which we owed to Ms. Stoppenhagen and/or MTA. In addition, MTA assumed all costs associated with these assets starting on March 31, 2014.


On July 14, 2017, we completed the acquisition of Prana Therapeutics, Inc. (“Prana”) in a one-for-one exchange of 5,730,000 shares of our common stock for 5,730,000 shares of the common stock of Prana. The purchase price had a fair market value of $5,070,500, based upon the closing price of $0.85 per share on the OTC QB exchange on July 14, 2017, including the cost to purchase 400,000 shares of Prana common stock for $200,000. Prana is a polymolecular botanical drug development company focused on developing targeted therapeutics for prevention of the negative side effects of chemotherapy, management of rheumatoid arthritis and treatment of brain cancer. Management elected to purchase Prana, because of the successful indication of the effectiveness of its Epidiferphane™ chemical formulation in the treatment of (i) the negative side effects of chemotherapy, (ii) inflammation and pain associated with arthritis and back-centric pain, and (iii) the potential shrinkage of brain tumors.


Our main line of business is the operation of state-of-the-art extraction facilities where we convert components of industrial hemp flower into finished CBD products. Substantially all of our revenues are derived from the sale of CBD products to our customers. We purchase industrial hemp flower from independent third-party farmers located throughout the continental United States.

UNITED CANNABIS CORPORATION

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS



Government Regulation - Marijuana is a Schedule-I controlled substance and is illegal under federal law. Even in those states in which the use of marijuana has been legalized, its use remains a violation of federal laws. As of September 30, 2019, 30 states and the District of Columbia allow their citizens to use medical marijuana, and voters in the states of California, Colorado, Washington, Nevada, Oregon, Alaska, Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont and the District of Columbia have approved ballot measures to legalize cannabis for adult recreational use. The state laws are in conflict with the federal Controlled Substances Act, which makes marijuana use and possession illegal on a national level. The former Obama administration had effectively stated that it was not an efficient use of resources to direct federal law enforcement agencies to prosecute those lawfully abiding by state-designated laws allowing the use and distribution of medical and recreational marijuana under what colloquially became known as the “Cole memo”. However, on January 4, 2018, Attorney General Jeffery Sessions rescinded the “Cole memo,” and issued a new memo in its place that reaffirms the Department of Justice’s stance of potentially prosecuting violators of federal marijuana laws. On April 13, 2018, President Trump pledged to support federalism-based legislation regarding marijuana and promised not to pursue federal prosecution despite the Attorney General’s actions. It appears that the current administration will not elect to vigorously enforce federal laws, but such future enforcement may cause significant financial damage to us.


On December 12, 2018, Congress passed the 2018 Farm Bill, which was signed into law by President Trump the following week.


The bill includes the following important provisions:


·

The 2018 Farm Bill defines hemp as the plant Cannabis sativa L and any part of the plant with a delta-9 THC concentration of not more than 0.3 percent by dry weight. This definition is consistent with the definition of industrial hemp in the 2014 bill, which created a limited agricultural pilot program regarding research into industrial hemp.


·

The 2018 Farm Bill removes hemp from the Controlled Substances Act, paving the way for the wholly legal cultivation, possession, sale and distribution of the hemp plant.


·

The 2018 Farm Bill delegates to states and Indian tribes the broad authority to regulate and limit the production and sale of hemp and hemp products within their borders. States and Indian tribes cannot, however, limit the transportation or shipment of hemp and hemp products through their respective jurisdictions.


The Company does not grow, distribute, sell or knowingly purchase any marijuana plants or products. All of the Company’s revenues are derived from the sale of legal CBD products that were extracted from industrial hemp plants or from licensing fees for the use of our patented product formulations.


NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES


Principles of Consolidation – Our consolidated financial statements include our accounts and the accounts of our wholly-owned subsidiaries (i) UCANN California Corporation, (ii) UC Colorado Corporation, (iii) UC Oregon Corporation, (iv) the ninety-five percent (95%) owned subsidiary Prana Therapeutics, Inc. (“PTI”), (v) the sixty five percent (85%) owned subsidiary Tennessee Extractions, LLC (TEL”) and the (vi) fifty percent (50%) owned subsidiary Cannabinoid Research Development Company Limited (“CRD”). All intercompany accounts and transactions of our subsidiaries have been eliminated. Our consolidated financial statements are stated in United States dollars and have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”). Our foreign subsidiary, CRD, uses U.S. dollars as their functional currency.


At July 1, 2019, we concluded that we had established a variable interest entity relationship with TEL, because we are the primary beneficiary, in accordance with U.S. GAAP. As a result, we elected to consolidate TEL beginning July1, 2019.


At March 31, 2017, we concluded that we had established a variable interest entity relationship with CRD, because we are the primary beneficiary, in accordance with U.S. GAAP. As a result, we elected to consolidate CRD beginning March 31, 2017.

UNITED CANNABIS CORPORATION

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS



In the opinion of our management, these unaudited consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments, all of which are of a normal recurring nature, necessary to present fairly our consolidated financial position at September 30, 2019, the consolidated results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, the consolidated statements of cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018 and the consolidated statements of stockholders’ equity for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the entire fiscal year.


Use of Estimates – The preparation of our consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires us to make estimates, assumptions and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of our consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the periods presented.


We make our estimate of the ultimate outcome for these items based on historical trends and other information available when our consolidated financial statements are prepared. We recognize changes in estimates in accordance with the accounting rules for the estimate, which is typically in the period when new information becomes available. We believe that our significant estimates, assumptions and judgments are reasonable, based upon information available at the time they were made. Our actual results could differ from these estimates, making it possible that a change in these estimates could occur in the near term.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments – Our financial instruments consist principally of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable, notes payable and other current assets and liabilities. We value our financial assets and liabilities using fair value measurements. Fair value is based on the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Assets and liabilities measured at fair value are categorized based on whether the inputs are observable in the market and the degree that the inputs are observable. The categorization of financial instruments within the valuation hierarchy is based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. The hierarchy is prioritized into three levels (with Level 3 being the lowest) defined as follows:


Level 1: Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the entity has the ability to access.


Level 2: Observable inputs other than prices included in Level 1, such as quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar assets and liabilities in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated with observable market data.


Level 3: Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets and liabilities. This includes certain pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies, and similar techniques that use significant unobservable inputs.


The carrying amount of our cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable, and other current assets and liabilities in our consolidated financial statements approximates fair value because of the short-term nature of the instruments. Investments in non-marketable equity securities are carried at cost less other-than-temporary impairments. The carrying amount of our notes payable and convertible debt at September 30, 2019, approximates their fair values based on our incremental borrowing rates.


There have been no changes in Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 categorizations and no changes in valuation techniques for these assets or liabilities for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018.


Cash and Cash Equivalents – We consider investments with original maturities of 90 days or less to be cash equivalents.


Accounts Receivable, Net – Our accounts receivable consists primarily of trade accounts arising in the normal course of business. No interest is charged on past due accounts. Accounts for which no payments have been received after 30 days are considered delinquent and customary collection efforts are initiated. Accounts receivable are carried at original invoice amount less a reserve made for doubtful accounts based on a review of all outstanding amounts on a monthly basis. We determine our allowance for doubtful accounts by regularly evaluating individual customer receivables and considering the customer’s financial condition and credit history, and current economic conditions. We recorded no bad debt expense during the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, and we have no allowance for doubtful accounts as of September 30, 2019 or December 31, 2018.

Inventory – The cost of our industrial hemp crop is stated at the lower of average cost or net realizable value based upon an average cost method, while industrial hemp biomass acquired from third parties is stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value using the last-in-first-out method. Included in inventory is our industrial hemp crop under cultivation on farm acreage leased by us. The cost of the industrial hemp crop under cultivation is determined based upon costs to purchase industrial hemp seed and industrial hemp cuttings, plus farm labor, fertilizer, water and power, and the cost to harvest and store the industrial hemp crop. The costs of planting, cultivating and harvesting our industrial hemp crop are capitalized to industrial hemp crop under cultivation, when incurred. The cost of farming equipment is amortized and depreciated to operating expense on a straight-line basis and is not capitalized as a component of industrial hemp crop. Upon completion of harvesting the industrial hemp crop, all incurred applicable costs are classified as raw materials. The cost of the raw materials inventory includes the cost of the industrial hemp crop plus the cost to purchase industrial hemp biomass from independent brokers and industrial hemp farmers. The cost of finished products includes the cost of raw materials plus costs for labor, processing costs, packaging and the allocated costs of our facilities infrastructure. The cost of finished products also includes the cost of purchasing manufactured products from independent processors. We periodically review the value of our inventory and provide a write-down of inventory based on our assessment of the market conditions. Any write-down is charged to cost of revenues. There have been no such write-downs during the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018.


Property, Plant and Equipment, net – Our property and equipment are recorded at cost. Maintenance and repairs are expensed as incurred. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over estimated useful lives of three to five years, and amortization is computed using the straight-line method over the life of the applicable lease. At the time of retirement or other disposition of property and equipment, the cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from our accounts and any resulting gain or loss is reflected in our consolidated statements of operations.


Operating Lease Right of Use Asset and Liability - We record operating leases on our consolidated balance sheets as operating lease right-of-use asset, with the related lease liability in accordance with ASC 842. We adopted ASC 842 using a modified retrospective approach for all leases existing at January 1, 2019. Accordingly, upon adoption, leases that were classified as operating leases under ASC 840 were classified as operating leases under ASC 842, and we recorded an adjustment of $910,315 to operating lease right-of-use assets and the related lease liability. The lease liability is based on the present value of the remaining minimum lease payments, determined under ASC 840, discounted using our secured incremental borrowing rate at the effective date of January 1, 2019, using the original lease term as the tenor. As permitted under ASC 842, we elected several practical expedients that permit us to not reassess (1) whether a contract is or contains a lease, (2) the classification of existing leases, and (3) whether previously capitalized costs continue to qualify as initial indirect costs. The application of the practical expedients did not have a significant impact on the measurement of the operating lease liability. The operating lease right-of-use asset and the related lease liability are stated on our consolidated balance sheet at September 30, 2019 in the amounts of $2,136,876 and $2,144,708, respectively.  These amounts reflect the present value of the remaining minimum lease payments of $908,447 recorded upon adoption of ASC 842 at January 1, 2019 for existing leases, plus the assets and liabilities attributable to leases entered into during the year to date. Specifically, net new leases were undertaken adding $1,466,284 to the operating lease right-of-use asset amount, bringing the recorded adoption amount to $2,374,732.  Rent expense recognition and contractually obligated cash outlay amounts reduced the asset and liability by $237,856 and $230,024, respectively.


Granted Patents, Net – Our patent was granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office on August 15, 2017. The patent covers the extraction of pharmaceutically active components from cannabis plant material, for incorporation into medicines. The cost of the patents is being amortized on the straight-line method over a 15-year period.


Intangible Assets – Our intangible assets, consisting of applications for trademarks, design mark and provisional patents, are recorded at cost, and once approved, will be amortized using the straight-line method over an estimated useful life of 10 to 15 years.


Long-Lived Assets Impairment Assessment – Our intangible assets and other long-lived assets are subject to an impairment test if there is an indicator of impairment. The carrying value and ultimate realization of these assets is dependent upon our estimates of future earnings and benefits that we expect to generate from their use. If our expectations of future results and cash flows are significantly diminished, intangible assets and other long-lived assets may be impaired and the resulting charge to operations may be material. When we determine that the carrying value of intangibles or other long-lived assets may not be recoverable based upon the existence of one or more indicators of impairment, we use the projected undiscounted cash flow method to determine whether an impairment exists, and then measure the impairment using discounted cash flows.


As discussed below, we recorded an impairment charge related to the goodwill resulting from our purchase of Prana Therapeutics, Inc in the amount of $4,731,729 and $0 in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 and the year ended December 31, 2018, respectively.

Our goodwill, which consists of our interest in a ninety-five percent owned subsidiary, Prana Therapeutics, Inc. (“PTI”) and a fifty percent owned subsidiary, Cannabinoid Research Development Company Limited (“CRD”), is not amortized, but is evaluated for impairment annually, or when indicators of a potential impairment are present.  We test goodwill for impairment annually or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value of an asset may not be recoverable, rather than amortize. Goodwill impairment tests consist of a comparison of each reporting unit’s fair value with its carrying value. Impairment exists when the carrying amount of goodwill exceeds the implied fair value for each reporting unit. To estimate the fair value, management used valuation techniques which included the discounted value of estimated future cash flows. The evaluation of impairment requires the Company to make assumptions about future cash flows over the life of the asset being evaluated. These assumptions require significant judgment and are subject to change as future events and circumstances change.  Actual results may differ from assumed and estimated amounts.  Management determined that an impairment write-down was required as of September 30, 2019. Thus, we recorded an impairment on our acquisition of Prana Therapeutics, Inc. in the amount of $4,019,229 in the three months ended September 30, 2019.  


Advance Receipts and Deferred Revenue – Cash received in advance a sale or products or services have not yet been delivered or are subject to refund until such time that we and our customer jointly determine that the product or service has been delivered or no refund will be required are recorded as either advance receipts or deferred revenue. Advance receipts and deferred revenues are recognized as revenue at such time that we and our customer jointly determine that the product or service has been delivered and that no refund will be required.


Revenue Recognition We recognize revenue in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which requires that five basic steps be followed to recognize revenue: (1) a legally enforceable contract that meets criterial standards as to composition and substance is identified; (2) performance obligations relating to provision of products or services to the customer are identified; (3) the transaction price, with consideration given to any variable, noncash, or other relevant consideration, is determined; (4) the transaction price is allocated to the performance obligations; and (5) revenue is recognized when an order has been obtained, the price is fixed and determinable, control of products or services is transferred to the customer with consideration given, whether that control happens over time or not, delivery has occurred and collectability is reasonably assured. Determination of criteria (3) and (4) are based on our management's judgments regarding the fixed nature of the selling prices of the products and services delivered and the collectability of those amounts.


Revenue Recognition – Affiliate Throughout the year ended December 31, 2018, we licensed our Prana products to Advesa, Inc. (“Advesa”), which is controlled by one of our major shareholders. Advesa had an exclusive right for five (5) consecutive one (1) year periods to sell our Prana products in certain cities in the state of California. In consideration for the exclusive license granted to Advesa under the agreement, Advesa was obligated to pay us a royalty on all Prana products sold by Advesa equal to 20% of the wholesale gross sale price of the Prana products. We recognized revenue on all Prana sales consistent with the criteria described above for all sales in accordance with ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. This license was cancelled effective January 1, 2019.


We have licensed Prana Hemp to NutriMed, LLC (“NutriMed”), which is controlled by two of our major shareholders, one of our officers and a consultant to the Company. NutriMed has a non-exclusive right to sell Prana Hemp in certain situations where the sale is to be completed through the use of a credit card associated with a merchant account owned and/or controlled by NutriMed. In consideration for the non-exclusive license granted to NutriMed under the agreement, NutriMed is obligated to pay us a royalty on all Prana Hemp products sold by NutriMed equal to 20% of the wholesale gross sale price of the Prana Hemp products. We recognize revenue on all Prana Hemp sales consistent with the criteria described above for all sales in accordance with ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers.

Cost of Revenues – Our policy is to recognize cost of revenues in the same manner as, and in conjunction with, revenue recognition. Our cost of revenues includes the costs directly attributable to revenue recognized and includes expenses related to the production, packaging and labeling of our Prana medicinal products; personnel-related costs, fees for third-party services, travel and other consulting costs related to our advisory services; direct material and labor costs related to the production of CBD isolate extracted in our extraction facility..


Research and Development Expenses Research and development (“R&D”) costs are charged to expense as incurred. Our R&D expenses include, but are not limited to, consulting service fees and materials and supplies used in the development of our proprietary products and services.


General and Administrative Expenses – General and administrative expenses consist primarily of personnel-related costs, fees for professional and consulting services, travel costs, rent, bad debt expense, general corporate costs, and other costs of administration such as human resources, finance and administrative roles.


Share-Based Compensation – We periodically issue shares of our common stock to non-employees in non-capital raising transactions for fees and services. We account for shares issued to non-employees in accordance with ASC 718-10-30-3, whereas the cost of goods obtained or services received in exchange for awards of share-based compensation generally shall be measured on the grant-date fair value of the equity instruments issued or on the fair value of the liabilities incurred.


We account for stock option grants issued and vesting to employees based on ASC 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation, whereas the award is measured at its fair value at the date of grant and is amortized ratably over the vesting period. Accounting for stock-based compensation to employees requires the measurement and recognition of compensation expense for all share-based payment awards made to employees based on estimated fair values. We estimate the fair value of all stock option awards on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes-Merton pricing model, which is affected by our stock price, as well as assumptions regarding a number of complex and subjective variables. These variables include our expected stock price volatility over the term of the awards, actual and projected employee option exercise behaviors, risk free interest rates and expected dividends. We also estimate forfeitures at the time of grant and revise those estimates in subsequent periods if actual forfeitures differ from our estimates.


Income Taxes – Income tax assets and liabilities are recorded using the asset and liability method. Under the asset and liability method, tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the tax consequences attributable to differences between financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Future tax assets and liabilities are measured using the enacted tax rates expected to apply when the asset is realized, or the liability settled. The effect on future tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that enactment occurs. To the extent that we do not consider it more likely than not that a future tax asset will be recovered, we will provide a valuation allowance against the excess.

 

We follow the provisions of ASC 740, Income Taxes. Because of ASC 740, we make a comprehensive review of our portfolio of tax positions in accordance with recognition standards established by ASC 740.


When tax returns are filed, it is highly certain that some positions taken would be sustained upon examination by the taxing authorities, while others are subject to uncertainty about the merits of the position taken or the amount of the position that would be ultimately sustained. The benefit of a tax position is recognized in our consolidated financial statements in the period during which, based on all available evidence, we believe it is more likely than not that the position will be sustained upon examination, including the resolution of appeals or litigation processes, if any. Tax positions taken are not offset or aggregated with other positions. Tax positions that meet the more-likely-than-not recognition threshold are measured as the largest amount of tax benefit that is more than 50 percent likely of being realized upon settlement with the applicable taxing authority. The portion of the benefits associated with tax positions taken that exceeds the amount measured as described above is reflected as a liability for unrecognized tax benefits in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets along with any associated interest and penalties that would be payable to the taxing authorities upon examination.


Interest and penalties associated with unrecognized tax benefits, if any, are classified as interest expense and penalties and are included in selling, general and administrative expenses in our consolidated statements of operations.

On December 22, 2017, the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was enacted. U.S. tax reform introduced many changes, including lowering the U.S. corporate tax rate to 21 percent, changes in incentives, provisions to prevent U.S. base erosion and significant changes in the taxation of international income, including provisions which allow for the repatriation of foreign earnings without U.S. tax. The enactment of U.S. tax reform had no impact on our income taxes for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 or 2018, respectively.


Commitments and Contingencies – Certain conditions may exist as of the date our consolidated financial statements are issued, which may result in a loss but which will only be resolved when one or more future events occur or fail to occur. We assess such contingent liabilities, and such assessment inherently involves an exercise of judgment. In assessing loss contingencies related to legal proceedings that are pending against us or unasserted claims that may result in such proceedings, we evaluate the perceived merits of the legal proceedings or unasserted claims as well as the perceived merits of the amount of relief sought or expected to be sought.


If the assessment of a contingency indicates that it is probable that a material loss has been incurred and the amount of the liability can be estimated, the estimated liability would be accrued in our consolidated financial statements. If the assessment indicates that a potentially material loss contingency is not probable, but is reasonably possible, or is probable but cannot be estimated, then the nature of the contingent liability, together with an estimate of the range of possible loss if determinable and material, would be disclosed.


Loss contingencies considered remote are generally not disclosed unless they involve guarantees, in which case the nature of the guarantee would be disclosed.


Net Loss Per Share – We compute net loss per share in accordance with ASC 260, Earnings per Share. Under the provisions of ASC 260, basic net loss per share includes no dilution and is computed by dividing the net loss available to common stockholders for the period by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per share takes into consideration shares of common stock outstanding (computed under basic net loss per share) and potentially dilutive securities that are not anti-dilutive.


Potentially dilutive securities outlined in the table below have been excluded from the computation of diluted net loss per share, because the effect of their inclusion would have been anti-dilutive.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, we did not have any gains or losses resulting from activities or transactions that resulted in other comprehensive income or loss.


Concentration of Credit Risk – Financial instruments that potentially subject us to credit risk consist of cash. We maintain our cash with high credit quality financial institutions; at times, such balances with any one financial institution may not be insured by the FDIC.


Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements – From time to time, the FASB or other standards setting bodies issue new accounting pronouncements. Updates to the FASB ASCs are communicated through issuance of an Accounting Standards Update ("ASU"). Unless otherwise discussed, we believe that the impact of recently issued guidance, whether adopted or to be adopted in the future, is not expected to have a material impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements upon adoption.


Reclassification – Certain reclassifications have been made to the prior period amounts to conform to the current period's presentation.

NOTE 3 – GOING CONCERN


Our consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis which assumes we will be able to realize our assets and discharge our liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future. During the nine months ended September 30, 2019, we incurred losses of $17,598,582, used cash of $4,935,227 in our operating activities, had a working capital deficit of $12,131,682 and had an accumulated deficit of $56,797,504 at September 30, 2019. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon our ability to generate profitable operations in the future and, or, obtaining the necessary financing to meet our obligations and repay our liabilities arising from normal business operations when they come due. There is no assurance that these events will be satisfactorily completed.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS



On April 6, 2016, we borrowed $25,000 from Ernest Blackmon and $25,000 from Tony Verzura and used the proceeds to repay principal and interest applicable on our $102,000 convertible promissory note dated October 12, 2015, to JSJ Investments Inc. The loans, together with interest at 12% per year, are payable on December 30, 2016. We may prepay the loans at any time.


Historically, Messrs. Blackmon, Verzura and Ruby, who are officers and directors of the Company, have paid obligations and expenses on behalf of the Company from their own individual, personal funds. Such payments have been recorded in the consolidated balance sheets as a component of Notes Payable to Officers and Directors and bear interest at 12.5% to 15% per annum.


On July 1, 2018, we elected to convert all accrued and unpaid wages owed to Messrs. Blackmon, Verzura, and Ruby in the aggregate amount of $310,408 as notes payable to them. Thus, $310,408 is classified as Notes payable to officers and directors on the consolidated balance sheet of the Company at September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018. Interest on the notes is at a rate of 15% for the principal amount due Mr. Blackmon, and at a rate of 12.5% for on the principal amount owed Messrs. Verzura and Ruby.


During the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, we recognized $99,541 and $57,305, respectively, of interest expense on notes payable to officers and directors. As of September 30, 2019, and December 31, 2018, $208,737 and $109,266, respectively, of accrued interest payable applicable to the notes is included in Notes payable to officers and directors on our consolidated balance sheets.


Effective March 21, 2019, Tony Verzura resigned as an officer and director of the Company.


NOTE 15 – ARBITRATION AND LITIGATION RESERVE  


On May 8, 2018, H2, LLC (“H2”) and the Company executed a letter of intent formalizing their intent to enter into a joint venture. The parties subsequently made monetary advances in anticipation of formalizing the joint venture through a definitive agreement. However, the joint venture was never formalized, and the letter of intent was terminated pursuant to its terms. Under the terms of the provisions in the letter of intent that survived its termination, the Company has the option to either provide H2 with 25% of the industrial hemp seeds purchased with $650,000 advanced by H2, or to refund the $650,000 advanced by H2. Pursuant to another provision in the letter of intent that survived termination, disputes are to be resolved via arbitration in Denver, Colorado. On August 10, 2018, H2 filed a lawsuit in the state of California naming the Company, as well as, naming Earnest Blackmon, our Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, and John Walsh, our Treasurer and Principal Accounting Officer. The lawsuit asserts various claims, including rescission of any purported contract or joint venture and asks for $16,500,000 in damages. Our counsel and Management believe the suit is without merit, and we will vigorously defend against the lawsuit. We filed with the court a motion to compel arbitration and stay the litigation against Mr. Blackmon and Mr. Walsh. On December 20, 2018, the court granted our motion and ordered H2 to arbitrate its dispute with the Company in Denver, Colorado, and stayed the litigation against Mr. Blackmon and Mr. Walsh pending the arbitration. The Company and H2 are currently in discussions regarding resolution of the dispute either via arbitration or by agreement. An arbitration hearing has been set to for March 2020.


On July 30, 2018, the Company filed a complaint for patent infringement and a demand for jury trial against Pure Hemp Collective Inc. (“Pure Hemp”) in the United States District Court for the District of Colorado. The Company contends that Pure Hemp has willfully and directly infringed the Company’s 9730911 Patent and seeks damages from Pure Hemp, among other relief. On October 29, 2018, Pure Hemp filed its answer, defenses and counterclaims, in which Pure Hemp contends the 9730911 Patent is not infringed by Pure Hemp and is invalid and unenforceable. Pure Hemp has also asserted a counterclaim under the Sherman Act against the Company in which it alleges the lawsuit is objectively baseless and requests the court enter an order awarding it its costs and attorneys’ fees as well as treble damages. The Company believes the Sherman Act counterclaim has no merit, and it is impossible to quantify the amount of any alleged damages allegedly suffered by Pure Hemp, or what its costs and fees in this case will be. On April 17, 2019, the Court entered an Order denying in its entirety Pure Hemp’s Early Motion for Partial Summary Judgment. In its motion, Pure Hemp had argued that the formulations claimed by the Company in the 9730911 Patent are non-patentable natural phenomena. In its Order, the Court disagreed with Pure Hemp and held that the concentrations of cannabinoids and related chemicals covered by the Patent are not natural phenomena and are patentable. Thus, the case continues in the United States District Court for the District of Colorado.

Clinical Trial Funding Commitment


On August 3, 2018, the University of Florida received approval of an Investigational New Drug (“IND”) application from the Department of Health and Human Services’ Food and Drug Administration for a clinical investigation for breast cancer of our 95% owned subsidiary, Prana Therapeutics, Inc.’s licensed flagship product, Epidiferphane™ (EDP™). We have committed to spend approximately $300,000 during 2019 and 2020 to fund phase I and phase II clinical trials in connection with the IND approval.


Research Laboratory


Prana Therapeutics, Inc., our 95% owned subsidiary (“PTI”), utilizes laboratory facilities at the University of Florida School of Medicine for research purposes. PTI is negotiating a research agreement with University of Florida Trustees for 2019 and 2020 for the continued use of the laboratory facilities. Under the terms of the draft research agreement, PTI would pay UFT $700,000 in 2019 and $900,000 in 2020 in varying quarterly installments, beginning in June 2019.


NOTE 20 – SUBSEQUENT EVENTS


We entered into a contract to sell one of our customers approximately $16,250,000 of 60% CBD crude oil. Unfortunately, the customer advised us that, on October 30, 2019, their manufacturing and processing facility was destroyed by a fire. Accordingly, it appears that the customer will not be able to fully perform the complete terms of the agreement.


In accordance with ASC 855-10 we have analyzed our operations subsequent to September 30, 2019 to the date these consolidated financial statements were issued, and have determined that, other than as disclosed above, we do not have any material subsequent events to disclose in these consolidated financial statements.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS.

 

Certain statements set forth below under this caption constitute forward-looking statements. See “Forward-Looking Statements” in the Prospectus Summary.


You should read the following discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and related notes appearing elsewhere in this Prospectus.


Overview


We were originally formed as a California corporation under the name MySkin, Inc. on November 15, 2007. MySkin was engaged in the business of providing management services to a medical spa in Los Angeles, California which provided various advanced skin care services until March 31, 2014, when this business was sold to the prior President of the Company.


Following this sale, we changed our focus to providing products, services and intellectual property to the cannabis industry.


United Cannabis Corporation is focused on extracting products from industrial hemp plants, which we wholesale to manufacturers, and which we use to create unique therapeutics for a wide range of diseases that can be utilized by patients globally. We own distinct intellectual property relating to the legalized growth, production, manufacture, marketing, management, utilization and distribution of medical and recreational marijuana and marijuana infused products. We license our intellectual property to businesses in the cannabis industry.


Patent


On August 15, 2017, the United States Patent and Trademark Office issued to the Company US Patent #9730911 (the “Patent”) granting exclusive rights to its proprietary formulations based on compounds extracted from cannabis plant materials; more specifically the composition of matter pertaining to the use of phytocannabinoids, cannabinoids, and specific terpene profiles in liquid form. This composition of matter Patent provides protection for our proprietary formulations. The Patent protects the use of suspending both phytocannabinoids and cannabinoids with specific combinations of cannabis derived terpenes in liquid forms with an array of delivery methods including capsule, sublingual, topical, oral, suppository, and vaporization. Cannabinoids referenced in the application include ratios of tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCa), cannabidiolic acid (CBDa), tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabinol (CBN), cannabidiol (CBD), cannabichromenic acid (CBCa), and cannabichromene (CBC).


Industrial Hemp Extraction Program


In early 2018, we elected to focus a significant portion of our assets, human resources and financial capital on the manufacturing and selling of a variety of cannabidiol centric products derived from industrial hemp plants. We constructed a pilot industrial hemp extraction facility in Weldona, Colorado. We hired and trained specialized extraction personnel and laboratory technicians that enable us to convert components of industrial hemp flower to finished CBD products.


The Weldona extraction facility opened in April 2018, and during the 13 months that the Weldona extraction facility was in operation, it generated approximately $12,500,000 of revenues from the sale of the CBD finished products produced at the facility.


Based upon the positive financial results of the Weldona extraction facility and the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, which legalized the cultivation, sale and distribution of products derived from the hemp plant, we decided in late 2018 to greatly expand our industrial hemp extraction program in order to capitalize on the growing world-wide demand that we see for CBD extracted products. Our first step in this expansion program was the construction of our new industrial hemp extraction facility in Mead, Colorado. The Mead extraction facility was completed in late June 2019 and has a production capacity fifteen (15) times greater than our Weldona extraction facility. Production at the Weldona extraction facility was closed down at the end of July 2019.


Our expansion program also includes operating industrial hemp extraction facilities that are geographically dispersed throughout the United States. These facilities will be a replica of our Mead facility, with the same production capacity. Our first undertaking in that regard is a joint venture we have formed to construct an industrial hemp extraction facility in South Carolina that is scheduled to open during the first quarter of 2020.




27



 


Our expansion program includes plans to open extraction facilities in California, Florida, Illinois, Tennessee New York, and in either Oregon or Washington to serve the Pacific Northwest.


We are presently researching agricultural acreage and physical plant locations in Jamaica, where we plan to open an industrial hemp extraction facility, and where we plan to cultivate hundreds of acres of industrial hemp in conjunction with our 50% owned Jamaican subsidiary, Cannabinoid Research Development Company, Limited. If an extraction facility is built in Jamaica, it is our intent to export CBD products throughout the Caribbean and to export CBD products to Canada and Europe. It is our understanding that there is a strong demand for CBD products in the Caribbean, Canada and the European countries.


2018 Farm Bill Legalizing Hemp


On December 12, 2018, Congress passed the 2018 Farm Bill, which was signed into law by President Trump the following week.


The bill includes the following important provisions:


·

The 2018 Farm Bill defines hemp as the plant Cannabis sativa L and any part of the plant with a delta-9 THC concentration of not more than 0.3 percent by dry weight. This definition is consistent with the definition of industrial hemp in the 2014 bill, which created a limited agricultural pilot program regarding research into industrial hemp.


·

The 2018 Farm Bill removes hemp from the Controlled Substances Act, paving the way for the wholly legal cultivation, possession, sale and distribution of the hemp plant.


·

The 2018 Farm Bill delegates to states and Indian tribes the broad authority to regulate and limit the production and sale of hemp and hemp products within their borders. States and Indian tribes cannot, however, limit the transportation or shipment of hemp and hemp products through their respective jurisdictions.


The Brightfield Group, a Chicago, Illinois based predictive analytics and market research firm for the legal cannabis and CBD industry, estimates that the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill will help expand the CBD market such that the market will reach $22 billion by 2022.

Our Prana Bio Nutrient Medicinal products are designed to help supplement deficiencies related to the endocannabinoid system including pain, neuropathy, arthritis, MS, IBS, autism, seizures, eczema, sleep, anxiety, head trauma, opioid dependency and clinical endocannabinoid deficiencies. The endocannabinoid system is a signaling system within the human body that utilizes hundreds of receptors to help maintain homeostasis between the central nervous system and the immune system.


Our Prana Aromatherapy Transdermal Roll-on line uses a proprietary blend of essential oils infused with cannabinoids designed to provide targeted and large surface relief with combinations of aromatherapy. The transdermal is a part of the complete patented Prana Bio Nutrient Medicinals line, which is offered in 5 categories (P1, P2, P3, P4, P5), with three delivery methods (sublingual, capsules, topical). Dosages range from 1mg to 50mg, are available in both raw and activated formulations, and paired with specific cannabis derived terpene profiles.

Prana Therapeutics, Inc


In furtherance of our long-term plan, on July 14, 2017, we acquired 95% of the voting interests of Prana Therapeutics, Inc. (“Prana” or “PTI”), in consideration for the issuance of 5,730,000 shares of our common stock. The acquisition of Prana broadens our foundation in plant-based drug development. Prana is a biotech company focused on developing targeted therapeutics for the prevention of the negative side effects of chemotherapy, management of rheumatoid arthritis and treatment of brain cancer.


Similar to the use of the compounds found in the cannabis plant to create our Prana Bio Medicinal products, Prana identifies novel combinations of botanical compounds to address unmet medical needs. Prana’s principal drug, Epidiferphane™, is a leading example of how combinatorial targeting can be used to address complex and difficult-to-treat diseases.


On August 3, 2018, PTI received notice that its licensed flagship product, EDP™, received approval on an Investigational New Drug application from the FDA for a clinical investigation for breast cancer. The clinical investigation will include a dose escalation, safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetic, and efficacy trial. The Phase 1 trial will test the potential toxicity of EDP™ at two targeted dosages and will measure safety levels, side effects, optimal dosage, and formulation. The Phase 2 trial will focus on whether or not EDP™ passes efficacy evaluations by reducing side effects of chemotherapy in patients.


Prana was founded by Dr. Brent Reynolds, a professor of Medical Research in the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Florida, College of Medicine and Dr. Dennis Steindler, a professor at Tufts University as well as, Dr. Loic Deleyrolle, a research assistant at McKnight Brain Institute at the University of Florida. Prana’s business model is based on technology developed there. Drs. Reynolds and Steindler have filed on behalf of the University of Florida Research Foundation, Inc. (“University of Florida”) patents related to the composition of matter and use claims on this technology in the United States and internationally. Prana owns the exclusive, world-wide license to the technology through a licensing agreement with the University of Florida.


We purchased Prana based upon our belief in the potential of Epidiferphane™ to help with the negative side effects of chemotherapy, inflammation and brain tumors;


The Negative Side Effects of Chemotherapy


An estimated 650,000 patients undergo chemotherapy each year, in the US alone, at a cost of approximately $12 billion. There are several protocols to minimize the side effects associated with chemotherapy, there is currently no protocol that prevents these symptoms. Preclinical data have shown Epidiferphane to be effective in preventing Anemia (low red blood cells), Neutropenia (low white blood cells), attenuating Chemotherapy Induced Peripheral Neuropathy, and protecting the endogenous neural stem cell population that is associated with Chemofog (memory problems). At least one of these conditions are experienced by 90% of patients going through chemotherapy.


Inflammatory Disease


Approximately 150 million patients suffer from inflammation and pain associated with arthritis and back-centric conditions, spending in excess of $30 billion on treatments, many of which have significant side effects. Epidiferphane™ in combination with nutritional ketosis reduces levels of cytokines that contribute to inflammatory diseases and in a small cohort of patients has been reported to reduce pain, morning stiffness and improve sleep.


Brain Tumors


There are approximately 80,000 new brain cancer diagnoses in the US each year; Glioblastoma, the most common type, has a survival diagnosis of approximately 12 months. In pre-clinical rodent testing, Epidiferphane™, in conjunction with a nutritional ketosis, has been shown to double the mean life expectancy, increase the effectiveness of chemotherapy, and sensitize chemotherapy resistant tumors to standard of care drugs.

At the time we acquired our 95% interest in PTI, we recorded goodwill on our Consolidated Balance Sheets in the amount of $4,731,729. A substantial portion of the goodwill was predicated upon expected pharmaceutical sales by PTI, which, as of yet, have not materialized, and which we do not believe will materialize to any great extent over the next few years. Additionally, PTI has very limited access to its own capital and must rely entirely on funding from the Company. Since the Company is continuing to experience operating losses, management has elected not to totally fund PTI to the extent necessary for PTI to be able to fully complete their business plan. Thus, we recorded an impairment charge in the amount of $4,731,729 during the nine months ended September 30, 2019. However, such write down of the goodwill associated with PTI does not diminish our belief that Epidiferphane™ may ultimately be recognized as a proven drug that could be used by patients to ameliorate the negative side effects of chemotherapy, inflammation and brain tumors.


Cannabinoid Research Development Company Limited (“CRD”)


In August 2014, we acquired 50% of the capital stock of CRD and we agreed to fund the operations of CRD on terms mutually agreed upon by us and CRD. As of the date of this annual report, CRD had ten employees and had applied to the Jamaican government for a license to conduct research on the benefits of cannabis which will be grown by CRD in Jamaica.


On March 16, 2018 Jamaica’s University of the West Indies’ Ethics Committee approved our proposal to conduct clinical trials on our Prana Bio Nutrient Medicinals P1 Capsules for the treatment of chronic pain. The study was conducted in conjunction with CRD at the Centre For Cannabis Research at the University of West Indies, Mona Campus, in Jamaica. The clinical research study has been completed for enrollment, patient dosing, and blood analysis. Data is being analyzed by outside biostatisticians. A peer-reviewed publication is expected in 2019.


ACT Now Program


One of our primary goals is to advance the use of cannabinoids in medicine through research, product development and education. Our intellectual property includes our ACT Now Program which is a comprehensive full spectrum cannabinoid therapy guide that utilizes the entire cannabis plant by controlling specific cannabinoid ratios, accurate dosing and multiple non-invasive delivery methods. Our ACT Now Program offers a wide range of affordable patient driven programs with limitless combinations of cannabinoid-based products and nutritional recommendations to assist patients suffering from chronic pain, opiate dependency, inflammation, glaucoma, PTSD, neuropathy, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, Crohn’s, IBS, seizures, epilepsy, paralysis, autoimmune, autism, tumors, HIV/AIDS and many types of cancer.


We own certain proprietary formulations, processes and other intellectual property which can be used to produce our Prana Bio Nutrient Medicinals in connection with our ACT Now Program. These products, which are made with unique combinations of pharmaceutically active cannabinoids, provide a comprehensive solution designed to enable physicians and patients to design, implement and monitor effective therapy protocols.


Results of Operations

 

Material changes in line items in our Statement of Operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2019, as compared to the same period last year, are discussed below:


Item

 

Increase (I)

or

Decrease (D)

Revenues

 

I

 

Total revenues for the nine months ended 2019 increased $8,837,584, over the same period last year. The September 30 2019 increase is substantially due to the fact that we sold $8,770,313 more of our CBD products then we did in the same period for the prior year.

Gross profit, as a % of revenue

 

D

 

The cost of goods sold for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 includes raw material costs and manufacturing costs incurred during the startup period for our Mead extraction facility. Because the Mead extraction facility was not consistently operating during the startup period, raw material costs and manufacturing costs were greater proportionally than for the same period last year. Additionally, in response to market pressures, we decreased the price of our products to our customers by 35% to 45% during the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Such decrease was implemented without us being able to timely achieve a commensurate reduction of the cost of our raw materials during the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Thus, the implementation of our Mead extraction facility, coupled with the reduction of our prices without a commensurate reduction of the cost of our raw materials, and the lack of biomass for raw materials during the 2019 farm harvesting period, resulted in a decrease of our gross profit for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 as compared to the same period in the prior year.

Operating expenses

 

D

 

Decreased substantially due to the fact the fair market value of stock options issued to officers, directors and employees was $1,661,846 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 as compared to $14,689,497 for the same period in the prior year

Impairment charge

 

I

 

A substantial portion of the goodwill associated with the acquisition of our 95% owned subsidiary, Prana Therapeutics, Inc. (“PTI”) has been predicated upon expected pharmaceutical sales, which, as of yet, have not materialized, and which we do not believe will materialize to any great extent over the next few years. Additionally, PTI has very limited access to its own capital and must rely entirely on funding from the Company. Since we are continuing to experience operating losses, management has elected not to totally fund PTI to the extent necessary for PTI to be able to fully complete their business plan. Thus, we recorded an impairment charge in the amount of $4,731,729 during the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

Other costs and expenses

 

I

 

Our other costs and expenses were $7,699,040 and $2,506,839 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively. The increase in other costs and expenses is due to the fact that (i) the goodwill impairment charge is $4,731,729 greater, (ii) the loss from the extinguishment of debt is $1,423,329 greater, (iii) the loss from the retirement of assets is $146,204 greater, and (iv) interest expense is $34,138 greater, respectively, for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 than the same period for the prior year. The increase in other costs and expenses was offset by the fact that the amortization of discount and the loss on issuance of common stock was $676,455 less and $466,744 less, respectively, in the nine months ended September 30, 2019 than the same period for the prior year.

Gross profit, as a % of revenue

 

D

 

In response to market pressures, we decreased the price of our products to our customers by 35% to 45% during the three months ended September 30, 2019.

Other costs and expenses

 

I

 

Other costs and expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2019 increased $4,171,363over the same period for last year. The increase is due to the fact that (i) a goodwill impairment charge is $4,731,729 greater (ii) the loss on extinguishment of debt is $91,444 greater and (iii) the loss on asset retirement is $146,204 greater, respectively, in the three months ended September 30, 2019 than the same period for the prior year. The increase in other costs and expenses was offset by the fact that (i) the amortization of debt discount is $295,854 less, (ii) the loss on issuance of common stock is $466,744 less, and (iii) interest expense is $35,419 less, respectively, in the three months ended September 30, 2019 than the same period for the prior year.


The factors that will most significantly affect future operating results will be:


·

State by state regulatory changes with respect to marijuana in the United States; and

·

Rescheduling of marijuana by the federal government.

Other than as disclosed above, we do not know of any:


·

trends, demands, commitments, events or uncertainties that will result in, or that are reasonable likely to result in, our liquidity increasing or decreasing in any material way; or

·

any significant changes in our expected sources and uses of cash.


During the next twelve months, we anticipate that we will incur approximately $7,200,000 of salaries and wages and general and administrative expenses, in order to execute our current business plan. We also expect to incur significant sales, marketing, research and development expenses during the next twelve months, and we expect to spend approximately (i) $7,000,000 on opening new extraction facilities, (ii) $500,000 on pursuing licensing and patent applications for products developed and licensed by our 95% owned subsidiary, Prana Therapeutics, Inc., and (iii) $1,500,000 on legal fees to enforce and defend our US Patent #9730911 in litigation that is currently pending, and to pursue other patent applications, and (iv) $750,000 on clinical research and clinical trials.


Our consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis which assumes we will be able to realize our assets and discharge our liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future. During the nine months ended September 30, 2019, we incurred losses of $17,598,582, used cash of $4,935,227 in our operating activities, had a working capital deficit of $12,131,682 and had an accumulated deficit of $56,797,504 at September 30, 2019. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon our ability to generate profitable operations in the future and, or, obtaining the necessary financing to meet our obligations and repay our liabilities arising from normal business operations when they come due. There is no assurance that these events will be satisfactorily completed.

Significant Accounting Policies


See Note 2 to the financial statements included as part of this report for a description of our significant accounting policies.


Recent Accounting Pronouncements


From time to time, the FASB or other standards setting bodies issue new accounting pronouncements. Updates to the FASB ASCs are communicated through issuance of an Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”). Unless otherwise discussed, we believe that the impact of recently issued guidance, whether adopted or to be adopted in the future, is not expected to have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements upon adoption.


There have been no recently issued guidance that would have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.


ITEM 4.

CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.


An evaluation was carried out under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Principal Executive and Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report on Form 10-Q. Our Principal Executive and Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective since we have a material weakness in these controls due to: (i) lack of a functioning audit committee due to a lack of a majority of independent members and a lack of a majority of outside directors on our board of directors, resulting in ineffective oversight in the establishment and monitoring of required internal controls and procedures; (ii) inadequate segregation of duties consistent with control objectives; and (iii) ineffective controls over period end financial disclosure and reporting processes. A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of control deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of our annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis.


While we strive to segregate duties as much as practicable, there is an insufficient volume of transactions at this point in time to justify additional full-time staff. We believe that this is typical in many start-up companies. We may not be able to fully remediate our material weaknesses until we increase our operations at which time, we would expect to hire more staff and consider increasing the number of directors on our board. We will continue to monitor and assess the costs and benefits of additional staffing. We have increased services and related staffing through our business and financial consulting contractor to remedy existing internal control and disclosure controls deficiencies.


While we have not yet remediated these material weaknesses, we will continue our remediation efforts during fiscal 2019.


Notwithstanding the identified material weaknesses, our management believes the consolidated financial statements included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q fairly represent in all material respects our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows at and for the periods presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.


Change in Internal Control over Financial Reporting


Our internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving their control objectives.


There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the fiscal quarter covered by this report that materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION


ITEM 5.  

OTHER INFORMATION.


On June 26, 2019, we entered into a contract to sell one of our customers approximately $16,250,000 of 60% CBD crude oil. Unfortunately, the customer advised us that, on October 30, 2019, their manufacturing and processing facility was destroyed by a fire. Accordingly, it appears that the customer will not be able to fully perform the complete terms of the contract.
