Important factors that may cause the actual results to differ from the forward-looking statements, projections or other expectations include, but are not limited to, the following:

 

  the long-term effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business;
     
  the limited operating history with our current business;
     
  significant losses incurred to date and “going concern” explanatory paragraph in our auditor’s report;
     
  the need for substantial additional financing to become commercially viable;
     
  dependence upon the successful development, commercial launch and acceptance of our planned products and in the successful license of our technology;
     
  effectiveness of the Company’s marketing strategy;
     
  the scope of intellectual property protection we can achieve;
     
  our dependence on third party manufacturing;

PROSPECTUS SUMMARY

 

This summary highlights certain information appearing elsewhere in this prospectus. This summary is not complete and does not contain all of the information you should consider prior to investing. After you read this summary, you should read and consider carefully the more detailed information and financial statements and related notes that we include in this prospectus, especially the sections entitled “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.” If you invest in our common stock, you are assuming a high degree of risk.

 

Unless we have indicated otherwise or the context otherwise requires, references in the prospectus to “Greater Cannabis,” the “Company,” “we,” “us” and “our” or similar terms are to The Greater Cannabis Company, Inc. and its subsidiary, unless otherwise indicated.

 

Company Overview

 

Our current business focus is on commercializing our own and licensed technologies worldwide for transmucosal and transdermal delivery of legal medical or recreational cannabis (other than in the field of oral care) and cannabinoids (“CBD”) (collectively, the “Technology”). While part of the cannabis family, CBD, which contains less than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”), the psychoactive compound that produces the “high” in marijuana, is distinguished from cannabis by its use, physical appearance and lower THC concentration (cannabis generally has a THC level of 10% or more). The Company’s initial product is am oral transmucosal patch platform which for provides for loaded actives to be absorbed by the buccal mucosa into the body.

 

On December 5, 2019, the Company received its first purchase order for 125,000 oral patches employing the Technology, which was filled in the second quarter of 2020. The Company has subsequently received and is negotiating additional orders for the oral patches.

 

The Company intends continue to commercialize the Technology by sublicensing or partnering with companies in the legal cannabis and CBD industries to bring the product to market. Potential partners include licensed producers, distributors, processors, consumer product and pharmaceutical companies. The Company intends to focus on the North American market in legal medical and recreational cannabis and CBD segments.

 

The full commercialization of the Technology is expected to require an investment of up to $1,500,000 and up to one year to finalize.

 

The Company is pursuing additional business opportunities in the CBD space, including in cosmetic, beauty, and health and wellness products. The Company is also seeking to license cannabinoid therapeutic technologies from medical and academic institutions with the intention of advancing those technologies through clinical studies, product development, and commercialization.

 

Effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Our Business

 

Since March 2020 there has been and there continues to be a significant and growing volatility and uncertainty in the global economy due to the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic affecting all business sectors and industries. ,The fulfillment of our first order of patches was delayed from the first quarter to the second quarter of 2020 due to the COVID-19 shutdowns in the United States. Moreover, our customers and suppliers could be further adversely affected as a result of additional or future quarantines, facility closures and logistics restrictions imposed or which otherwise occur in connection with the pandemic. More broadly, the high degree unemployment resulting from the pandemic could potentially lead to an extended economic downturn, which would likely decrease spending, adversely affect demand for our products and harm our business, results of operations and financial condition. At this time, we cannot accurately predict the long-term effects the COVID-19 pandemic will have on our business.

Corporate Information

 

The Company was organized as a limited liability company in the State of Florida, effective March 13, 2014 and was converted to a Florida corporation effective January 13, 2017. Our executive offices are located at 15 Walker Avenue, Suite 101, Baltimore, Maryland 21208 and our telephone number is (443) 738-4051.

 

Corporate History

 

The Company’s initial business plan was to concentrate on cannabis related investment and development opportunities by direct e-commerce sales and advertising through its online retail store, direct equity investments, joint ventures, licensing agreements and/or acquisitions.

 

On July 31, 2018, the Company entered into and consummated a voluntary share exchange transaction with Green C Corporation, a company incorporated under the laws of the Province of Ontario (“Green C”) and the shareholders of Green C (the “Green C Shareholders”) pursuant to a Share Exchange Agreement by and among the Company, Green C and the Green C Shareholders (the “Exchange Agreement”). Green C had commenced commercialization efforts with respect to the Technology.

 

In accordance with the terms of the Exchange Agreement, the Company issued 9,411,998 shares of its preferred stock, par value $0.001 (the “Series A Preferred Shares”) to the Green C Shareholders in exchange for 100% of the issued and outstanding capital stock of Green C (the “Exchange Transaction”). As a result of the Exchange Transaction, the Green C Shareholders acquired Series A Preferred Shares holding 79.05% of the voting power of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares of capital stock, Green C became the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary and the Company acquired 100% of the business and operations of Green C.

 

After the consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Exchange Agreement, we modified our business model to eliminate online retail sales and advertising and instead to focus on commercializing the Technology and seeking other complementary investment and development opportunities in the legal cannabis, CBD and related fields.

 

Going Concern

 

The Company is a development stage company. The Company has had no revenues and has incurred losses of $951,170 and $1,648,595 for the years ended December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively. We had accumulated deficits of $3,330,408 and $2,379,238 at December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

There can be no assurance that sufficient funds required during the next year or thereafter will be generated from operations or that funds will be available from external sources such as debt or equity financings or other potential sources. The lack of additional capital resulting from the inability to generate cash flow from operations or to raise capital from external sources would force the Company to substantially curtail or cease operations and would, therefore, have a material adverse effect on its business. Furthermore, there can be no assurance that any such required funds, if available, will be available on attractive terms or that they will not have a significant dilutive effect on the Company’s existing shareholders.

 

The Company intends to overcome the circumstances that impact its ability to remain a going concern through a combination of the commencement of revenues, with interim cash flow deficiencies being addressed through additional equity and debt financing. The Company anticipates raising additional funds through public or private financing, strategic relationships or other arrangements in the near future to support its business operations; however, the Company may not have commitments from third parties for a sufficient amount of additional capital. The Company cannot be certain that any such financing will be available on acceptable terms, or at all, and its failure to raise capital when needed could limit its ability to continue its operations. The Company’s ability to obtain additional funding will determine its ability to continue as a going concern. Failure to secure additional financing in a timely manner and on favorable terms would have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial performance, results of operations and stock price and require it to curtail or cease operations, sell off its assets, seek protection from its creditors through bankruptcy proceedings, or otherwise. Furthermore, additional equity financing may be dilutive to the holders of the Company’s common stock, and debt financing, if available, may involve restrictive covenants, and strategic relationships, if necessary to raise additional funds, and may require that the Company relinquish valuable rights.

Emerging Growth Company

 

We are an “emerging growth company,” as defined in the JOBS Act, and we may take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that are applicable to other public companies.

 

Section 107(b) of the JOBS Act provides that an “emerging growth company” can take advantage of the extended transition period provided in Section 7(a)(2)(B) of the Securities Act for complying with new or revised accounting standards. In other words, an “emerging growth company” can delay the adoption of certain accounting standards until those standards would otherwise apply to private companies. We have irrevocably opted out of the extended transition period for complying with new or revised accounting standards pursuant to Section 107(b) of the JOBS Act.

 

We could remain an “emerging growth company” for up to five years, or until the earliest of (a) the last day of the first fiscal year in which our annual gross revenues are $1 billion, as adjusted, or more; (b) the date that we become a “large accelerated filer” as defined in Rule 12b-2 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), which would occur if the market value of our common stock that is held by non-affiliates exceeds $700 million as of the last business day of our most recently completed second fiscal quarter; and (c) the date on which we have issued more than $1 billion in non-convertible debt during the preceding three-year period.

 

The Selling Shareholder

 

On March 15, 2021 (the “Issuance Date”), the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Securities Purchase Agreement”) pursuant to which it issued the FFG Note in the issued to FFG the FFG Note. On the Issuance Date, the FFG Note was funded as to an initial tranche of principal in the amount of o$272,500. Of which $22,500 constituted an original issue discount. The $272,500 balance of the FFG Note including original issue discount of $22,500 will be funded upon the registration statement of which this prospectus forms a part being declared effective with the SEC.

 

The FFG Note bears interest at the rate of six percent (6%) per annum, which accrues from the date of funding of each tranche and will mature on March 11, 2021. The FFG Note may be pre-paid in whole or in part by paying FFG the following premiums:

 

PREPAY DATE   PREPAY AMOUNT
≤ 30 days   105% * (Principal + Interest (“P+I”)
31- 60 days   110% * (P+I)
61-90 days   115% * (P+I)
91-120 days   120% * (P+I)
121-150 days   125% * (P+I)
151-180 days   130% * (P+I)

 

Any amount of principal or interest on the FFG Note, which is not paid when due shall bear interest at the rate of twenty-four (24%) per annum from the due date thereof until the same is paid (“Default Interest”).

 

FFG has the right beginning on the date which is one hundred eighty (180) days following the Issuance Date to convert all or any part of the outstanding and unpaid principal amount of the FFG Note and accrued but unpaid interest thereon into shares of our common stock at a conversion price equal to seventy percent (70%) of the average closing price of the Company’s common stock for the five prior trading days prior to the date that the registration statement of which this prospectus forms a part is declared effective by the SEC (the “Conversion Price”). The Conversion Price of the FFG Note is subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends, recapitalizations or other customary events. In the case of an Event of Default (as defined in the FFG Note), the FFG Note shall become immediately due and payable in an amount (the “Default Amount”) equal to the principal amount then outstanding plus accrued interest (including any Default Interest) through the date of full repayment, multiplied by one hundred twenty-five percent (125%). and interest shall accrue at the rate of Default Interest. Certain events of default will result in further penalties.

 

Pursuant to the Securities Agreement, on the Issuance Date, the Company issued three warrants to FFG (the “Warrants”) to purchase 25,000,000, 15,000,000 and 10,000,000 shares of our common stock, respectively. The Warrants are exercisable for a period of eighteen (18) months from the Issuance Date, at exercise prices of $0.025, $0.05 and $0.075, respectively. The exercise prices are subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends, recapitalizations or other customary events.

 

On the Issuance Date, the Company also entered into a registration rights agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) with FFG, pursuant to which it agreed to prepare and file with the SEC a registration statement or registration statements (as is necessary) covering the resale of all of the shares of common stock into which the FFG Note is convertible and the shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants

These risks should be considered in conjunction with any other information included herein, including in conjunction with forward-looking statements made herein. If any of the following risks actually occur, they could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results or prospects. Additional risks and uncertainties that we do not presently know or that we currently deem immaterial may also impair our business, financial condition, operating results and prospects.

 

Risks Related to the Company’s Business

 

At this time, we cannot accurately predict the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business.

 

Since March 2020 there has been and there continues to be a significant and growing volatility and uncertainty in the global economy due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic affecting all business sectors and industries. ,The fulfillment of our first order of patches was delayed from the first quarter to the second quarter of 2020 due to the COVID19 shutdowns in the United States. Moreover, our customers and suppliers could be further adversely affected as a result of additional or future quarantines, facility closures and logistics restrictions imposed or which otherwise occur in connection with the pandemic. More broadly, the high degree unemployment resulting from the pandemic could potentially lead to an extended economic downturn, which would likely decrease spending, adversely affect demand for our products and harm our business, results of operations and financial condition. At this time, we cannot accurately predict the long-term effects the COVID-19 pandemic will have on our business.

 

We are a development stage company with a limited operating history.

 

The Company is a development stage company, with a limited operating history. The Company has generated only minimal revenues to date and has incurred losses of $951,170 and $1,648,595, for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019. We had accumulated deficits of $3,330,408 and $2,379,238 at December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively. We are subject to all the problems, expenses, difficulties, complications and delays encountered in establishing a new business. The Company does not know if it will become commercially viable and ever generate significant revenues or operate at a profit.

 

Our independent registered public accounting firm has issued a going concern opinion; there is substantial uncertainty that we will continue operations in which case you could lose your investment.

 

In their report dated March 25, 2021, our independent registered public accounting firm, Michael T. Studer CPA P.C., stated that our audited consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern and that the Company’s present financial situation raises substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon our generating profitable operations in the future and/or to obtain the necessary financing to meet our obligations and repay our liabilities arising from normal business operations when they come due. Our management intends to finance operating costs over the next twelve months with existing cash on hand and public issuance of common stock. Although we may be successful in obtaining financing and/or generating revenue to fund our operations, meet regulatory requirements and achieve commercial goals, there are no assurances that such funding will be achieved at a sufficient level or that we will succeed in our future operations.

 

The Company’s ultimate success will be dependent in large part on our ability to successfully commercialize the Technology.

 

Our success in large part will be dependent on our ability to successfully commercialize the Technology. We estimate that it will take up to $1,500,000 and a year to fully commercialize the Technology. There can be no assurance given that the Company will have the financial or technical resources to do so, or even if we do, that it can be successfully commercialized. Failure to do so would substantially harm the Company’s business, results of operations and financial condition.

There can be no assurance that even if the Technology is successfully commercialized, that it will be accepted by participants in the legal cannabis and CBD industries.

 

Even if we are able to successfully commercialize the Technology, our success will be dependent in part on acceptance of the Technology by participants in the legal cannabis and CBD industries. There can be no assurance given that such will be the case and if industry participants do not accept the Technology our business prospects will be significantly harmed.

 

We intend to rely on third party partners and sublicensees to market the Technology.

 

We have no internal marketing experience and accordingly, we intend to market the Technology once commercialized by sublicensing or partnering with companies in the legal cannabis and CBD industries. We have no agreements with any potential sublicensee or partner and there can be no assurance that we can enter into such an agreement on commercially reasonable terms. Failure to do so could seriously harm our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

We are dependent on a single customer for sales of our initial oral delivery patch.

 

All of our revenues to date have been generated by sales of our initial oral delivery patch to a single customer. If we do not maintain good relations with that customer or if that customer decides not to make further purchases of our oral delivery patch (we have no written agreement therefor), our business, financial condition and results of operations may be harmed.

 

We will need to raise additional capital to continue operations over the coming year and otherwise fund full commercialization of the Technology.

 

We anticipate the need to raise approximately $1,500,000 in capital to fund our operations through December 31, 2021. We expect to use these cash proceeds primarily for business development, testing, licensing and operations. Moreover, we will likely need additional funding beyond December 31, 2021 to become commercially viable and ultimately achieve profitable operations. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to raise these required funds on commercially reasonable term or generate sufficient revenue to remain operational. Failure to secure needed financing at any stage would seriously harm our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

Our proposed business is dependent on laws pertaining to the marijuana industry.

 

Continued development of the marijuana industry is dependent upon continued legislative authorization and/or voter approved referenda of marijuana at the state level. Any number of factors could slow or halt progress in this area. Further, progress for the industry, while encouraging, is not assured. While there may be ample public support for legislative action, numerous factors impact the legislative process. Any one of these factors could slow or halt use of marijuana, which would negatively impact our proposed business.

 

As of the date of this prospectus, 36 states and the District of Columbia allow the use of medical marijuana and 17 states and the District of Columbia allow the use of recreational cannabis. These state laws are in conflict with the federal Controlled Substances Act, which makes marijuana use, cultivation and/or possession illegal on a national level. As discussed in the “Cole Memo” the former Obama administration has effectively stated that it is not an efficient use of resources to direct law federal law enforcement agencies to prosecute those lawfully abiding by state-designated laws allowing the use and distribution of medical marijuana. This policy continued on a de facto basis through the Trump administration and is expected to continue in the Biden administration. However, any change in the federal government’s enforcement of current federal laws could cause significant financial damage to us and our shareholders.

 

11
 

 

All strains of cannabis other than hemp remain illegal under Federal law.

 

Despite the development of a legal cannabis industry under the laws of certain states and the legalization of hemp under the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, the state laws legalizing medical and adult cannabis use are in conflict with the Federal Controlled Substances Act, which classifies cannabis as a “Schedule-I” controlled substance and makes cannabis use and possession illegal on a national level. The United States Supreme Court has ruled that the Federal government has the right to regulate and criminalize cannabis, even for medical purposes, and thus Federal law criminalizing the use of cannabis preempts state laws that legalize its use. However, the Obama Administration determined that it is not an efficient use of resources to direct Federal law enforcement agencies to prosecute those lawfully abiding by state laws allowing the use and distribution of medical and recreational cannabis. While this policy continued on a de facto basis during the Trump administration and is expected to continue under the Biden administration, there can be no assurance that the current administration will not change the Federal government’s stated policy regarding the low-priority enforcement of Federal laws in states where cannabis has been legalized. Any such change in the Federal government’s enforcement of Federal laws could cause significant financial damage to us and our shareholders.

 

Laws and regulations affecting the medical marijuana industry are constantly changing, which could detrimentally affect our proposed operations.

 

Local, state and federal medical marijuana laws and regulations are broad in scope and subject to evolving interpretations, which could require us to incur substantial costs associated with compliance or alter our business plan. In addition, violations of these laws, or allegations of such violations, could disrupt our business and result in a material adverse effect on our operations. In addition, it is possible that regulations may be enacted in the future that will be directly applicable to our proposed business. We cannot predict the nature of any future laws, regulations, interpretations or applications, nor can we determine what effect additional governmental regulations or administrative policies and procedures, when and if promulgated, could have on our business.

 

As the possession and use of strains of cannabis that are not hemp is illegal under the Federal Controlled Substances Act, we may be deemed to be aiding and abetting illegal activities through the services that we provide to users and advertisers. As a result, we may be subject to enforcement actions by law enforcement authorities, which would materially and adversely affect our business.

 

Under Federal law, and more specifically the Federal Controlled Substances Act, the possession, use, cultivation, and transfer of non-hemp cannabis is illegal. Our business provides services to customers that are engaged in the business of possession, use, cultivation, and/or transfer of cannabis. As a result, law enforcement authorities, in their attempt to regulate the illegal use of cannabis, may seek to bring an action or actions against us, including, but not limited, to a claim of aiding and abetting another’s criminal activities. The Federal aiding and abetting statute provides that anyone who “commits an offense against the United States or aids, abets, counsels, commands, induces or procures its commission, is punishable as a principal.” 18 U.S.C. §2(a). As a result of such an action, we may be forced to cease operations and our investors could lose their entire investment. Such an action would have a material negative effect on our business and operations.

 

We are highly dependent on the services of key executives, the loss of whom could materially harm our business and our strategic direction. If we lose key management or significant personnel, cannot recruit qualified employees, directors, officers, or other personnel or experience increases in our compensation costs, our business may materially suffer.

 

We are highly dependent on our management team, specifically Aitan Zacharin, our Chief Executive Officer. If we lose key employees, our business may suffer. Furthermore, our future success will also depend in part on the continued service of our management personnel and our ability to identify, hire, and retain additional key personnel. We do not carry “key-man” life insurance on the lives of any of our executives, employees or advisors. We experience intense competition for qualified personnel and may be unable to attract and retain the personnel necessary for the development of our business. Because of this competition, our compensation costs may increase significantly.

 

Government actions or digital distribution platform restrictions could result in our products and services being unavailable in certain geographic regions, harming future growth.

 

Due to our connections to the cannabis industry, governments and government agencies could ban or cause the Technology to become unavailable in certain regions and jurisdictions. This could greatly impair or prevent us from entering the market and commercializing our technology.

 

12
 

 

We may not be able to compete successfully with other established companies offering the same or similar services and, as a result, we may not achieve our projected revenue and user targets.

 

If we are unable to compete successfully with other businesses in our existing market, we may not achieve our projected revenue and/or customer targets. We compete with both start-up and established retail and technology companies. Compared to our business, some of our competitors may have greater financial and other resources, have been in business longer, have greater name recognition and be better established in the technological or cannabis markets.

 

Due to our involvement in the cannabis industry, we may have a difficult time obtaining the various insurances that are desired to operate our business, which may expose us to additional risk and financial liabilities.

 

Insurance that is otherwise readily available, such as workers’ compensation, general liability, and directors and officer’s insurance, is more difficult for us to find and more expensive, because we are a service provider to companies in the cannabis industry. There are no guarantees that we will be able to find such insurances in the future, or that the cost will be affordable to us. If we are forced to go without such insurances, it may prevent us from entering into certain business sectors, may inhibit our growth, and may expose us to additional risk and financial liabilities. The Greater Cannabis Company, Inc. carries general liability insurance. We do not currently hold any other forms of insurance, including directors’ and officers’ insurance. Because we do not have any other types of insurance, if we are made a party of a legal action, we may not have sufficient funds to defend the litigation. If that occurs a judgment could be rendered against us that could cause us to cease operations.

 

Participants in the cannabis industry may have difficulty accessing the service of banks, which may make it difficult for us to operate.

 

Despite recent rules issued by the United States Department of the Treasury mitigating the risk to banks who do business with cannabis companies operating in compliance with applicable state laws, as well as recent guidance from the United States Department of Justice, banks remain wary of accepting funds from businesses in the cannabis industry. Since the use of cannabis remains illegal under Federal law, there remains a compelling argument that banks may be in violation of Federal law when accepting for deposit funds derived from the sale or distribution of cannabis and/or related products. Consequently, businesses involved in the cannabis industry continue to have trouble establishing banking relationships. Our inability to open a bank account may make it difficult (and potentially impossible) for us, or some of our advertisers, to do business with us.

 

Our success will depend in large part upon the validity of the patent and other intellectual property we are able to obtain and any failure to protect our intellectual property rights or any claims that we are infringing upon the rights of others may adversely affect our competitive position.

 

Our success will depend in large part upon the validity of the patent and other intellectual property we are able to obtain for the Technology and on our ability to protect and defend our intellectual property rights. We cannot be sure as to the scope of protection that we may be able to secure or that our existing and potential competitors will not challenge, invalidate or circumvent any patent and other intellectual property rights we do obtain.

 

The Technology may require FDA approval.

 

The use of the Technology in certain circumstances may be subject to pre-approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (the “FDA”) for certain applications, or equivalent regulatory body approval in other jurisdictions. If so, obtaining FDA and other approvals will require a substantial investment of funds and may take years. There is no assurance that we will be able to successfully obtain any such required regulatory approvals needed to enter certain markets.

Risks Related to our Status as a Public Company

 

We are subject to the periodic reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934(the “Exchange Act”) that requires us to incur audit fees and legal fees in connection with the preparation of such reports. These additional costs could reduce or eliminate our ability to earn a profit.

 

We are required to file periodic reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) under the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder. In order to comply with these requirements, our independent registered public accounting firm has to review our financial statements on a quarterly basis and audit our financial statements on an annual basis. Moreover, our legal counsel has to review and assist in the preparation of such reports. The incurrence of such costs is an expense to our operations, may increase as the Company grows and therefore have a negative effect on our ability to meet our overhead requirements and earn a profit. If we cannot provide reliable financial reports or prevent fraud, our business and operating results could be harmed, investors could lose confidence in our reported financial information, and the trading price of our common stock, if a market ever develops, could drop significantly.

 

Our internal controls are inadequate, which could cause our financial reporting to be unreliable and lead to misinformation being disseminated to the public.

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. As defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act, internal control over financial reporting is a process designed by, or under the supervision of, the principal executive and principal financial officer and effected by the board of directors, management and other personnel, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and includes those policies and procedures that:

 

  pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the Company;
     
  provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the Company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and/or directors of the Company; and
     
  provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the Company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 

Our Chief Executive Officer has concluded that as of December 31, 2020, our disclosure controls and procedures, and our internal control over financial reporting, were not effective at the reasonable assurance level. We are taking additional steps to remedy these material weaknesses. However, we expect to incur additional expenses and diversion of management’s time in order to do so, which may adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial condition. Further, effective internal controls are necessary for us to produce reliable financial reports and are important to help prevent financial fraud. If we cannot provide reliable financial reports or prevent fraud, our business and operating results could be harmed, investors could lose confidence in our reported financial information, and the trading price of our common stock, if a market ever develops, could drop significantly.

 

The Jobs Act has reduced the information that the Company is required to disclose, which could adversely affect the price of our common stock.

 

Under the Jobs Act, the information that the Company is required to disclose has been reduced in a number of ways.

 

Before the adoption of the Jobs Act, the Company was required to register the common stock under the Exchange Act within 120 days after the last day of the first fiscal year in which the Company had total assets exceeding $1,000,000 and 500 record holders of the common stock; the Jobs Act has changed this requirement such that the Company must register the common stock under the Exchange Act within 120 days after the last day of the first fiscal year in which the Company has total assets exceeding $10,000,000 and 2,000 record holders or 500 record holders who are not “accredited investors.” As a result, the Company is now required to register the common stock under the Exchange Act substantially later than previously.

 

14
 

 

As a company that had gross revenues of less than $1 billion during the Company’s last fiscal year, the Company is an “emerging growth company,” as defined in the Jobs Act (an “EGC”). The Company will retain that status until the earliest of (a) the last day of the fiscal year which the Company has total annual gross revenues of $1,000,000,000 (as indexed for inflation in the manner set forth in the Jobs Act) or more; (b) the last day of the fiscal year of following the fifth anniversary of the date of the first sale of the common stock pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act; (c) the date on which the Company has, during the previous three year period, issued more than $1,000,000,000 in non-convertible debt; or (d) the date on which the Company is deemed to be a “large accelerated filer,” as defined in Rule 12b-2 under the Exchange Act or any successor thereto. As an EGC, the Company is relieved from the following:

 

  The Company is excluded from Section 404(b) of the Sarbanes-Oxley of 2002 (“Sarbanes-Oxley”), which otherwise would have required the Company’s auditors to attest to and report on the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. The Jobs Act also amended Section 103(a)(3) of Sarbanes-Oxley to provide that (i) any new rules that may be adopted by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (“PCAOB”) requiring mandatory audit firm rotation or changes to the auditor’s report to include auditor discussion and analysis (each of which is currently under consideration by the PCAOB) shall not apply to an audit of an EGC; and (ii) any other future rules adopted by the PCAOB will not apply to the Company’s audits unless the SEC determines otherwise.
     
  The Jobs Act amended Section 7(a) of the Securities Act to provide that the Company need not present more than two years of audited financial statements in an initial public offering registration statement and in any other registration statement, need not present selected financial data pursuant to Item 301 of Regulation S-K for any period prior to the earliest audited period presented in connection with such initial public offering. In addition, the Company is not required to comply with any new or revised financial accounting standard until such date as a private company (i.e., a company that is not an “issuer” as defined by Section 2(a) of Sarbanes-Oxley) is required to comply with such new or revised accounting standard. Corresponding changes have been made to the Exchange Act, which relates to periodic reporting requirements, which would be applicable if the Company were required to comply with them.
     
  As long as the Company is an EGC, the Company may comply with Item 402 of Regulation S-K, which requires extensive quantitative and qualitative disclosure regarding executive compensation, by disclosing the more limited information required of a “smaller reporting company.”
     
  In the event that the Company registers the common stock under the Exchange Act as it intends to do, the Jobs Act will also exempt the Company from the following additional compensation-related disclosure provisions that were imposed on U.S. public companies pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Act: (i) the advisory vote on executive compensation required by Section 14A(a) of the Exchange Act; (ii) the requirements of Section 14A(b) of the Exchange Act relating to shareholder advisory votes on “golden parachute” compensation; (iii) the requirements of Section 14(i) of the Exchange Act as to disclosure relating to the relationship between executive compensation and our financial performance; and (iv) the requirement of Section 953(b)(1)of the Dodd-Frank Act, which requires disclosure as to the relationship between the compensation of the Company’s chief executive officer and median employee pay.

 

Since the Company is not required, among other things, to file reports under Section 13 of the Exchange Act or to comply with the proxy requirements of Section 14 of the Exchange Act until such registration occurs or to comply with certain provisions of Sarbanes-Oxley and the Dodd-Frank Act and certain provisions and reporting requirements of or under the Securities Act and the Exchange Act or to comply with new or revised financial accounting standards as long as the Company is an EGC, and the Company’s officers, directors and 10% shareholders are not required to file reports under Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act until such registration occurs, the Jobs Act has had the effect of reducing the amount of information that the Company and its officers, directors and 10% shareholders are required to provide for the foreseeable future.

 

As a result of such reduced disclosure, the price for the common stock may be adversely affected, if a market ever develops.

 

15
 

 

Public companies are subject to risks relating to securities fraud and derivative lawsuits, which may have a material adverse effect on our business, operations, and financial results.

 

As a publicly-traded company, we are subject to state and federal securities laws. There is a risk that we may be subject to lawsuits that allege that we have violated such laws. Such a lawsuit would cause us to incur significant legal fees and could take up significant time of our executive officers and directors. We may be unable to defend or settle such an action, causing a material adverse effect on our business, operations, and financial results.

 

Such allegations could materially harm our reputation among investors and damage our ability to raise funds, issue securities, or remain liquid. It may reduce trading volume and cause a significant decline in the market price of our shares, damaging your ability to sell your shares. We do not currently have directors’ and officers’ insurance.

 

Risks Relating to our Common Stock

 

There is currently limited liquidity of shares of our common stock.

 

Our common stock was first quoted for trading on the OTCQB tier of the over-the-counter market in the quarter ended September 30, 2018. The trading market for our common stock is limited and sporadic. Failure to develop or maintain a trading market could negatively affect its value and make it difficult or impossible for you to sell your shares. Even if a market for common stock does develop, the market price of common stock may be highly volatile. In addition to the uncertainties relating to future operating performance and the profitability of operations, factors such as variations in interim financial results or various, as yet unpredictable, factors, many of which are beyond our control, may have a negative effect on the market price of our common stock.

 

We do not expect to pay dividends in the future; any return on investment may be limited to the value of our common stock.

 

We do not currently anticipate paying cash dividends in the foreseeable future. The payment of dividends on our common stock will depend on earnings, financial condition and other business and economic factors affecting it at such time as the board of directors may consider relevant. Our current intention is to apply net earnings, if any, in the foreseeable future to increasing our capital base and development and marketing efforts. There can be no assurance that the Company will ever have sufficient earnings to declare and pay dividends to the holders of our common stock, and in any event, a decision to declare and pay dividends is at the sole discretion of our board of directors. If we do not pay dividends, our common stock may be less valuable because a return on your investment will only occur if its stock price appreciates.

 

The market price for our common stock may be particularly volatile given our status as a relatively unknown company, with a limited operating history and lack of profits which could lead to wide fluctuations in our share price. You may be unable to sell your common stock at or above your purchase price, which may result in substantial losses to you.

 

Our stock price may be particularly volatile when compared to the shares of larger, more established companies that trade on a national securities exchange and have large public floats. The volatility in our share price will be attributable to a number of factors. First, our common stock will be compared to the shares of such larger, more established companies, sporadically and thinly traded. As a consequence of this limited liquidity, the trading of relatively small quantities of shares by our shareholders may disproportionately influence the price of those shares in either direction. The price for our shares could decline precipitously in the event that a large number of shares of our common stock are sold on the market without commensurate demand. Second, we are a speculative or “risky” investment due to our limited operating history and lack of profits to date, and uncertainty of future market acceptance for our potential products. As a consequence of this enhanced risk, more risk-averse investors may, under the fear of losing all or most of their investment in the event of negative news or lack of progress, be more inclined to sell their shares on the market more quickly and at greater discounts than would be the case with the stock of a larger, more established company that trades on a national securities exchange and has a large public float. Many of these factors are beyond our control and may decrease the market price of our common stock, regardless of our operating performance. We cannot make any predictions or projections as to what the prevailing market price for our common stock will be at any time. Moreover, the OTCQB is not a liquid market in contrast to the major stock exchanges. We cannot assure you as to the liquidity or the future market prices of our common stock if a market does develop. If an active market for our common stock does not develop, the fair market value of our common stock could be materially adversely affected.

 

16
 

 

Our shares are subject to the “Penny Stock” Rules and investors who purchase our shares may have difficulty re-selling their shares as the liquidity of the market for our shares may be adversely affected by the impact of the “Penny Stock” Rules.

 

Our stock is subject to the “Penny Stock” rules, which may make the stock more difficult to trade on the open market. A “penny stock” is generally defined by regulations of the SEC as an equity security with a market price of less than $5.00 per share. However, an equity security with a market price under $5.00 will not be considered a penny stock if it fits within any of the following exceptions:

 

  (i) the equity security is listed on NASDAQ or a national securities exchange;
   
  (ii) the issuer of the equity security has been in continuous operation for less than three years, and either has (a) net tangible assets of at least $5,000,000, or (b) average annual revenue of at least $6,000,000; or
   
  (iii) the issuer of the equity security has been in continuous operation for more than three years and has net tangible assets of at least $2,000,000.

 

Our common stock does not currently fit into any of the above exceptions.

 

If an investor buys or sells a penny stock, SEC regulations require that the investor receive, prior to the transaction, a disclosure explaining the penny stock market and associated risks. Furthermore, trading in our common stock will be subject to Rule 15g-9 of the Exchange Act, which relates to non-NASDAQ and non-exchange listed securities. Under this rule, broker/dealers who recommend our securities to persons other than established customers and accredited investors must make a special written suitability determination for the purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written agreement to a transaction prior to sale. Securities are exempt from this rule if their market price is at least $5.00 per share. Since our common stock is currently deemed penny stock regulations, it may tend to reduce market liquidity of our common stock, because they limit the broker/dealers’ ability to trade, and a purchaser’s ability to sell, the stock in the secondary market.

 

The low price of our common stock has a negative effect on the amount and percentage of transaction costs paid by individual shareholders. The low price of our common stock also limits our ability to raise additional capital by issuing additional shares. There are several reasons for these effects. First, the internal policies of certain institutional investors prohibit the purchase of low-priced stocks. Second, many brokerage houses do not permit low-priced stocks to be used as collateral for margin accounts or to be purchased on margin. Third, some brokerage house policies and practices tend to discourage individual brokers from dealing in low-priced stocks. Finally, broker’s commissions on low-priced stocks usually represent a higher percentage of the stock price than commissions on higher priced stocks. As a result, the Company’s shareholders may pay transaction costs that are a higher percentage of their total share value than if our share price were substantially higher.

 

Because we can issue additional shares of common stock without shareholder approval, purchasers of our common stock may incur immediate dilution and experience further dilution.

 

We are authorized to issue up to 2,000,000,000 shares of common stock, of which 478,638,436 shares are issued and outstanding as of the date of this prospectus. Our Board of Directors has the authority to cause us to issue additional shares of common stock without consent of any of our shareholders. Consequently, our shareholders may experience more dilution in their ownership of our stock in the future.

 

Dilution from Convertible Note Financings

 

The Company has done a number of convertible note financings, including the issuance of the FFG Note to FFG As a result of these transactions, shareholders of the Company may experience additional substantial dilution.

 

17
 

 

A reverse stock split may decrease the liquidity of the shares of our common stock.

 

The liquidity of the shares of our common stock may be affected adversely by a reverse stock split given the reduced number of shares that will be outstanding following a reverse stock split, especially if the market price of our common stock does not increase as a result of the reverse stock split.

 

Cautionary Note

 

We have sought to identify what we believe to be the most significant risks to our business, but we cannot predict whether, or to what extent, any of such risks may be realized nor can we guarantee that we have identified all possible risks that might arise. Investors should carefully consider all of such risk factors before making an investment decision with respect to our common stock.

 

USE OF PROCEEDS

 

This prospectus relates to shares of our common stock that may be offered and sold from time to time by the Selling Shareholder. We will not receive any proceeds from the sale of shares of common stock in this offering. We may receive proceeds in connection with the exercise of the Warrants. We intend to use any such proceeds for working capital and other general corporate purposes. There is no assurance that any of the Warrants will ever be exercised. We have agreed to bear the expenses (other than any underwriting discounts or commissions or broker’s commissions) in connection with the registration of the common stock being offered hereby by the Selling Shareholder.

 

THE SELLING SHAREHOLDER

 

The shares of common stock being offered by the Selling Shareholders are the shares issuable to the Selling Shareholder upon conversion of the FFG Note, in payment of interest on the FFG Note or upon exercise of the Warrants. We are registering the shares of common stock in order to permit the Selling Shareholder to offer the shares for resale from time to time. Except for the issuance of the FFG Note and the Warrant to the Selling Shareholder, the Selling Shareholder has not had any material relationship with us within the past three years.

 

The table below sets forth information regarding the beneficial ownership (as determined under Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations thereunder) of the shares of common stock held by the Selling Shareholder.

 

This prospectus covers the resale of up to 200,000,000 shares of common stock issuable to FFG upon conversion of or in payment of interest on the FFG Note and up to 50,000,000 shares of common stock issuable to FFG upon exercise of the Warrants. Because the conversion price of the FFG Note may and the exercise price of the Warrants may be adjusted, the number of shares that will actually be issued may be more or less than the number of shares being offered by this prospectus.

BUSINESS

 

Company Overview

 

Our current business focus is on commercializing our own and licensed technologies worldwide for transmucosal and transdermal delivery of legal medical or recreational cannabis (other than in the field of oral care) and cannabinoids (“CBD”) (collectively, the “Technology”). While part of the cannabis family, CBD, which contains less than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”), the psychoactive compound that produces the “high” in marijuana, is distinguished from cannabis by its use, physical appearance and lower THC concentration (cannabis generally has a THC level of 10% or more). The Company’s initial product is am oral transmucosal patch platform which for provides for loaded actives to be absorbed by the buccal mucosa into the body.

 

On December 5, 2019, the Company received its first purchase order for 125,000 oral patches employing the Technology, which was filled in the second quarter of 2020. The Company has subsequently received and is negotiating additional orders for the oral patches.

 

The Company intends continue to commercialize the Technology by sublicensing or partnering with companies in the legal cannabis and CBD industries to bring the product to market. Potential partners include licensed producers, distributors, processors, consumer product and pharmaceutical companies. The Company intends to focus on the North American market in legal medical and recreational cannabis and CBD segments.

 

The full commercialization of the Technology is expected to require an investment of up to $1,500,000 and up to one year to finalize.

 

The Company is pursuing additional business opportunities in the CBD space, including in cosmetic, beauty, and health and wellness products. The Company is also seeking to license cannabinoid therapeutic technologies from medical and academic institutions with the intention of advancing those technologies through clinical studies, product development, and commercialization.

 

Effects of the COVD-19 Pandemic on Our Business

 

Since March 2020 there has been and there continues to be a significant and growing volatility and uncertainty in the global economy due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic affecting all business sectors and industries. ,The fulfillment of our first order of patches was delayed from the first quarter to the second quarter of 2020 due to the COVID-19 shutdowns in the United States. Moreover, our customers and suppliers could be further adversely affected as a result of additional or future quarantines, facility closures and logistics restrictions imposed or which otherwise occur in connection with the pandemic. More broadly, the high degree unemployment resulting from the pandemic could potentially lead to an extended economic downturn, which would likely decrease spending, adversely affect demand for our products and harm our business, results of operations and financial condition. At this time, we cannot accurately predict the long-term effects the COVID-19 pandemic will have on our business.

 

Corporate Information

 

The Company was organized as a limited liability company in the State of Florida, effective and was converted to a Florida corporation effective January 13, 2017. Our executive offices are located at 15 Walker Avenue, Suite 101, Baltimore, Maryland 21208 and our telephone number is (443) 738-4051.

 

Corporate History

 

The Company’s initial business plan was to concentrate on cannabis related investment and development opportunities by direct e-commerce sales and advertising through its online retail store, direct equity investments, joint ventures, licensing agreements and/or acquisitions.

 

On July 31, 2018, the Company entered into and consummated a voluntary share exchange transaction with Green C Corporation, a company incorporated under the laws of the Province of Ontario (“Green C”) and the shareholders of Green C (the “Green C Shareholders”) pursuant to a Share Exchange Agreement by and among the Company, Green C and the Green C Shareholders (the “Exchange Agreement”).

 

20
 

 

In accordance with the terms of the Exchange Agreement, the Company issued 9,411,998 shares of its preferred stock, par value $0.001 (the “Series A Preferred Shares”) to the Green C Shareholders in exchange for 100% of the issued and outstanding capital stock of Green C (the “Exchange Transaction”). As a result of the Exchange Transaction, the Green C Shareholders acquired Series A Preferred Shares holding 79.05% of the voting power of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares of capital stock, Green C became the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary and the Company acquired 100% of the business and operations of Green C. Green C had commenced commercialization efforts with respect to the Technology.

 

After the consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Exchange Agreement, we modified our business model to eliminate online retail sales and advertising and instead to focus on commercializing the Technology and seeking other complementary investment and development opportunities in the legal cannabis, CBD and related fields.

 

Commercialization and Marketing Strategy

 

Given its small size and limited financial and personnel resources, the Company intends to commercialize the Technology by sublicensing or partnering with companies in the legal cannabis and CBD industries to bring the product to market and market and sell the product on an ongoing basis. Potential partners include licensed producers, distributors, processors, consumer product and pharmaceutical companies. The Company intends to focus on the North American market in legal medical and recreational cannabis and CBD segments. The Company also intends to undertake certain research and development efforts directly through experienced firms in the field which it will retain as independent contractors.

 

The full commercialization of the Technology is expected to require an investment of up to $1,500,000 and up to one year to finalize.

 

Government Regulation

 

General

 

Cannabis is currently a Schedule I controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act (“CSA”) and is, therefore, illegal under federal law. Even in those states in which the use of cannabis has been legalized pursuant to state law, its use, possession or cultivation remains a violation of federal law. A Schedule I controlled substance is defined as one that has no currently accepted medical use in the United States, a lack of safety for use under medical supervision and a high potential for abuse. The U.S. Department of Justice (the “DOJ”) defines Schedule I controlled substances as “the most dangerous drugs of all the drug schedules with potentially severe psychological or physical dependence.” If the federal government decides to enforce the CSA in those states which have legalized medicinal and/or recreational use of cannabis, persons that are charged with distributing, possessing with intent to distribute or growing cannabis could be subject to fines and/or terms of imprisonment, the maximum being life imprisonment and a $50 million fine.

 

Notwithstanding the CSA, as of the date of this prospectus, 36 states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana in some capacity. Additionally, 17 states and the District of Colombia have approved the implementation of legal recreational marijuana use. Such state and territorial laws are in conflict with the federal CSA, which makes cannabis use and possession illegal at the federal level.

 

In light of such conflict between federal laws and state laws regarding cannabis, the previous administration under President Obama 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 cannabis. For example, the prior DOJ Deputy Attorney General of the Obama administration, James M. Cole, issued a memorandum (the “Cole Memo”) to all United States Attorneys providing updated guidance to federal prosecutors concerning cannabis enforcement under the CSA. In addition, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (“FinCEN”) provided guidelines (the “FinCEN Guidelines”) on February 14, 2014, regarding how financial institutions can provide services to cannabis-related businesses consistent with their Bank Secrecy Act obligations (.

 

21
 

 

During the Trump administration, there had been indications of potential change in cannabis-related policies, including a memo issued by then Attorney General Jeff Sessions in January 2018, although no formal action was ever taken. Although we expect this policy to continue under the Biden administration, there can be no assurance that will be the case. Accordingly, until there are formal changes in Federal cannabis-related enforcement policies, we intend to remain within the guidelines outlined in the Cole Memo and the FinCEN Guidelines where applicable; however, we cannot provide assurance that we are in full compliance with the Cole Memo, the FinCEN Guidelines or any applicable federal laws or regulations.

 

Cole Memo

 

Because of the discrepancy between the laws in some states, which permit the distribution and sale of medical and recreational cannabis, from federal law that prohibits any such activities, DOJ Deputy Attorney General James M. Cole issued the Cole Memo concerning cannabis enforcement under the CSA. The Cole Memo guidance applies to all of the DOJ’s federal enforcement activity, including civil enforcement and criminal investigations and prosecutions, concerning cannabis in all states.

 

The Cole Memo reiterates Congress’s determination that cannabis is a dangerous drug and that the illegal distribution and sale of cannabis is a serious crime that provides a significant source of revenue to large-scale criminal enterprises, gangs, and cartels. The Cole Memo notes that the DOJ is committed to enforcement of the CSA consistent with those determinations. It also notes that the DOJ is committed to using its investigative and prosecutorial resources to address the most significant threats in the most effective, consistent, and rational way. In furtherance of those objectives, the Cole Memo provides guidance to DOJ attorneys and law enforcement to focus their enforcement resources on persons or organizations whose conduct interferes with any one or more of the following important priorities (the “Enforcement Priorities”) in preventing:

 

  the distribution of cannabis to minors;
     
  revenue from the sale of cannabis from going to criminal enterprises, gangs, and cartels;
     
  the diversion of cannabis from states where it is legal under state law in some form to other states;
     
  state-authorized cannabis activity from being used as a cover or pretext for the trafficking of other illegal drugs or other illegal activity;
     
  violence and the use of firearms in the cultivation and distribution of cannabis;
     
  drugged driving and the exacerbation of other adverse public health consequences associated with cannabis use;
     
  the growing of cannabis on public lands and the attendant public safety and environmental dangers posed by cannabis production on public lands; and
     
  cannabis possession or use on federal property.

 

We intend to conduct rigorous due diligence to verify the legality of all activities that we engage in and ensure that our activities do not interfere with any of the Enforcement Priorities set forth in the Cole Memo.

 

The Cole Memo is meant only as a guide for United States Attorneys and does not alter in any way the Department of Justice’s authority to enforce Federal law, including Federal laws relating to cannabis, regardless of state law.

Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018

 

The federal Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, signed into law on December 20, 2018, along with the Agricultural Act of 2014, the corresponding Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016 provisions (as extended by resolution into 2018) and related state law, provide for the cultivation, processing, manufacturing and sale of hemp-derived products, as part of agricultural pilot programs and/or state plans adopted by individual states, including Colorado. However, there can be no assurance that new legislation or regulations may be introduced at either the federal and/or state level which, if passed, would impose substantial new regulatory requirements on the manufacture, packaging, labeling, advertising and distribution and sale of hemp-derived products. New legislation or regulations may require the reformulation, elimination or relabeling of certain products to meet new standards and revisions to certain sales and marketing materials and it is possible that the costs of complying with these new regulatory requirements could be material.

 

FDA

 

The use of our technology may be subject to pre-approval by the FDA for certain applications, or equivalent regulatory body approval in other jurisdictions. If so, obtaining FDA and other approvals will require a substantial investment of funds and may take years. In such case, we intend to rely on our sublicensees or strategic partners to fund and undertake any required approval process. There is no assurance that we will be able to successfully obtain any such required regulatory approvals needed to enter certain markets or market our technology for certain applications.

 

We also may be required to comply with FDA and other federal, state and foreign regulations regarding safety, dosing and other similar matters.

 

Competition

 

There are a number of other delivery technology companies operating in the cannabis and CBD sectors, many of which have longer operating histories and far greater financial and personnel resources than we do. Known competitors in our space include Intelex Technologies (IGXT), CTT Pharmaceuticals (CTTH) and Cure Pharmaceuticals (CURR).

 

Employees

 

We have two persons providing us services on a full-time basis – our chief executive officer and our general counsel.

 

Properties

 

We currently occupy space in Baltimore, Maryland for our executive offices. The space is provided by Aitan Zacharin, our Chief Executive Officer, at no cost.

 

Legal Proceedings

 

Currently there are no legal proceedings pending or threatened against us. However, from time to time, we may become involved in various lawsuits and legal proceedings which arise in the ordinary course of business. Litigation is subject to inherent uncertainties, and an adverse result in any such matter may harm our business

MARKET FOR COMMON EQUITY AND RELATED SHAREHOLDER MATTERS

 

Our shares of common stock have been quoted on the OTCQB tier of the over-the-counter market operated by OTC Markets Group, Inc. under the symbol “GCAN” since August 2018. Such market is extremely limited. We can provide no assurance that our shares of common stock will be continued to be traded on the OTCQB or another exchange, or if traded, that the current public market will be sustainable. On May 5, 2020, the closing price for our common stock was $0.0077 as reported by OTC Markets Group, Inc.

 

The SEC has adopted rules that regulate broker-dealer practices in connection with transactions in penny stocks. Penny stocks are generally equity securities with a price of less than $5.00, other than securities registered on certain national securities exchanges or quoted on the Nasdaq system, provided that current price and volume information with respect to transactions in such securities is provided by the exchange or system. The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document prepared by the SEC, that: (a) contains a description of the nature and level of risk in the market for penny stocks in both public offerings and secondary trading; (b) contains a description of the broker’s or dealer’s duties to the customer and of the rights and remedies available to the customer with respect to a violation to such duties or other requirements of securities’ laws; (c) contains a brief, clear, narrative description of a dealer market, including bid and ask prices for penny stocks and the significance of the spread between the bid and ask price; (c) contains a toll-free telephone number for inquiries on disciplinary actions; (d) defines significant terms in the disclosure document or in the conduct of trading in penny stocks; and; (f) contains such other information and is in such form, including language, type, size and format, as the SEC shall require by rule or regulation.

 

The broker-dealer also must provide, prior to effecting any transaction in a penny stock, the customer with (a) bid and offer quotations for the penny stock; (b) the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction; (c) the number of shares to which such bid and ask prices apply, or other comparable information relating to the depth and liquidity of the market for such stock; and (d) a monthly account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer’s account.

 

In addition, the penny stock rules require that prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from those rules; the broker-dealer must make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written acknowledgment of the receipt of a risk disclosure statement, a written agreement to transactions involving penny stocks, and a signed and dated copy of a written suitability statement.

 

These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the trading activity in the secondary market for our stock if it becomes subject to these penny stock rules. Therefore, because our common stock is subject to the penny stock rules, shareholders may have difficulty selling those securities.

 

Outstanding Shares and Holders of Our Common Stock

 

As of the date of this prospectus, we have 478,638,436 shares of common stock issued and outstanding and approximately 331 holders of record.

 

Rule 144 Shares

 

Rule 144 provides that a person who is not an affiliate and has held restricted securities for a prescribed period of at least six months (if the issuer is a reporting company) or 12 months (if the issuer is a non-reporting company, as is the case herein), may, under certain conditions, sell all or any of his shares without volume limitation. Affiliates, however, may not sell shares in excess of 1% of the Company’s outstanding common stock in any three-month period. There is no limit on the amount of restricted securities that may be sold by a non-affiliate (i.e., a stockholder who has not been an officer, director or control person for the three months prior to sale) after the restricted securities have been held by the owner for the aforementioned prescribed period of time.

 

However, Rule 144 is unavailable for the resale of restricted securities initially issued by a blank-check or shell company, both before and after a business combination, despite technical compliance with the requirements of Rule 144. As we were a blank check company, such restricted securities can be resold only through a registered offering or pursuant to another exemption from registration. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a person who beneficially owns restricted securities of a company which:

 

  (a) has ceased to qualify as a blank-check or shell company;
     
  (b) is subject to the reporting requirements of Section 13 or 15(d) of the Exchange Act;
     
  (c) has filed all reports and other materials required to be filed by Section 13 or 15(d) of the Exchange Act, as applicable, during the preceding 12 months (or such shorter period that the company was required to file such reports and materials); and
     
  (d) has filed certain information with the SEC, reflecting that it is no longer a blank-check or shell company;

 

may, after one year has elapsed from the date the required information was filed with the SEC, sell such shares subject to the above limitations.

 

Dividends on Common Stock

 

We have not previously declared a cash dividend on our common stock and we do not anticipate the payment of dividends in the near future.

MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

Please read the following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations in conjunction with financial statements and notes thereto, as well as the “Risk Factors” and “Business” sections included elsewhere in this prospectus. The following discussion contains forward-looking statements that reflect our plans, estimates and beliefs. Our actual results could differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause or contribute to these differences include those discussed below and elsewhere in this prospectus, particularly in “Risk Factors.

 

Results of Operations

 

Year ended December 31, 2020, as compared to year ended December 31, 2019

 

For the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company generated $48,044 in annual revenue compared to $7,120 in 2019. During the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company’s revenue was positively impacted due to the sale of our ETP patches to Symtomax.

 

Cost of sales was $48,090 for the year ended December 31, 2020 and $3,125 for the year ended December 31, 2019. Our operating expenses in the year ended December 31, 2020 amounted to $294,411 as compared to $529,318 for the year ended December 31, 2019.

 

Our net loss in the year ended December 31, 2020 was $951,170 as compared to the net loss of $1,648,595 during the year ended December 31, 2019.

 

The amounts presented in the financial statements do not provide for the effect of inflation on our operations or our financial position. Amounts shown for costs and expenses reflect historical cost and do not necessarily represent replacement cost. The net operating losses shown would be greater than reported if the effects of inflation were reflected either by charging operations with amounts that represent replacement costs or by using other inflation adjustments.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

We had $112,953 cash on hand at December 31, 2020, compared to $24,662 at December 31, 2019.

 

At December 31, 2020, we had $22,875 in principal amount of outstanding convertible notes.

 

Please see NOTE E - NOTES PAYABLE TO THIRD PARTIES for further information.

 

The proceeds from loans, convertible debentures as well as cash on hand is being used to fund the operations of our current operations.

 

The following table provides detailed information about our net cash flows for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019.

 

    December 31, 2020     December 31, 2019  
Net cash (used in) operating activities   $ (289,627 )   $ (285,229 )
Net cash (used in) investing activities     (61,750 )     -  
Net cash provided by financing activities     439,668       250,000  
Net increase (decrease) in cash   $ 88,291     $ (35,229 )

 

25
 

 

Trends

 

The factors that will most significantly affect our future operating results, liquidity and capital resources will be:

 

  Government regulation of the marijuana industry;
  Revision of Federal banking regulations for the marijuana industry; and
  Legalization of the use of marijuana for medical or recreational use in other states.

 

Other than the foregoing, we do not know of any trends, events or uncertainties that have had, or are reasonably expected to have, a material impact on:

 

  revenues or expenses;
  any material increase or decrease in liquidity; or
  expected sources and uses of cash.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The SEC issued Financial Reporting Release No. 60, “Cautionary Advice Regarding Disclosure About Critical Accounting Policies” suggesting that companies provide additional disclosure and commentary on their most critical accounting policies. In Financial Reporting Release No. 60, the SEC has defined the most critical accounting policies as the ones that are most important to the portrayal of a company’s financial condition and operating results and require management to make its most difficult and subjective judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates of matters that are inherently uncertain. Based on this definition, we have identified the following significant policies as critical to the understanding of our financial statements. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make a variety of estimates and assumptions that affect (i) the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the financial statements and (ii) the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods covered by the financial statements. Our management expects to make judgments and estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain. As the number of variables and assumptions affecting the future resolution of the uncertainties increase, these judgments become even more subjective and complex. Although we believe that our estimates and assumptions are reasonable, actual results may differ significantly from these estimates. Changes in estimates and assumptions based upon actual results may have a material impact on our results.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to investors.

Audit Committee and Financial Expert

 

We do not have an audit committee or an audit committee financial expert. Our corporate financial affairs are simple at this stage of development and each financial transaction can be viewed by any officer or Director at will. We will form an audit committee if it becomes necessary as a result of growth of the Company or as mandated by public policy.

 

Code of Ethics

 

We do currently have a Code of Ethics applicable to our principal executive, financial and accounting officers.

 

Potential Conflicts of Interest

 

Since we do not have an audit or compensation committee comprised of independent Directors, the functions that would have been performed by such committees are performed by our Board of Directors. Thus, there is a potential conflict of interest, in that our Directors who are also our officers have the authority to determine issues concerning management compensation, and audit issues that may affect management decisions. We are not aware of any other conflicts of interest with any of our Directors or officers.

PRINCIPAL SHAREHOLDERS

 

The following table sets forth certain information, as of the date of this prospectus, with respect to any person (including any “group,” as that term is used in Section 13(d)(3) of the Exchange Act) who is known to us to be the beneficial owner of more than five percent (5%) of any class of our voting securities, and as to those shares of our equity securities beneficially owned by each of our directors and executive officers and all of our directors and executive officers as a group. Unless otherwise specified in the table below, such information, other than information with respect to our directors and executive officers, is based on a review of statements filed with the SEC pursuant to Sections 13(d), 13(f), and 13(g) of the Exchange Act with respect to our common stock. As of the date of the prospectus, there were 88,349,536 shares of our common stock outstanding.

 

The number of shares of common stock beneficially owned by each person is determined under the rules of the SEC and the information is not necessarily indicative of beneficial ownership for any other purpose. Under such rules, beneficial ownership includes any shares as to which such person has sole or shared voting power or investment power and also any shares which the individual has the right to acquire within sixty (60) days after the date hereof, through the exercise of any stock option, warrant or other right. Unless otherwise indicated, each person has sole investment and voting power (or shares such power with his or her spouse) with respect to the shares set forth in the following table. The inclusion herein of any shares deemed beneficially owned does not constitute an admission of beneficial ownership of those shares.

 

The following table lists, as at the date hereof, the number of shares of common stock of our Company that are beneficially owned by (a) each person or entity known to our Company to be the beneficial owner of more than 5% of the outstanding common stock; (b) each officer and director of our Company; and (c) all officers and directors as a group. Information relating to beneficial ownership of common stock by our principal shareholders and management is based upon information furnished by each person using “beneficial ownership” concepts under the rules of the SEC. Under these rules, a person is deemed to be a beneficial owner of a security if that person has or shares voting power, which includes the power to vote or direct the voting of the security, or investment power, which includes the power to vote or direct the voting of the security. The person is also deemed to be a beneficial owner of any security of which that person has a right to acquire beneficial ownership within 60 days. Under the SEC rules, more than one person may be deemed to be a beneficial owner of the same securities, and a person may be deemed to be a beneficial owner of securities as to which he or she may not have any pecuniary beneficial interest. Except as noted below, each person has sole voting and investment power.

DESCRIPTION OF CAPITAL STOCK

 

General

 

The following description summarizes the most important terms of our capital stock, as they will be in effect upon the closing of this offering. Because it is only a summary, it does not contain all the information that may be important to you. For a complete description of the matters set forth in this “Description of Capital Stock,” you should refer to our Articles of Incorporation, as amended, and Bylaws each of which are included as exhibits to the registration statement of which this prospectus forms a part, and to the applicable provisions of Florida law. Our authorized capital stock consists of 2,000,000,000 shares of common stock, $0.001 par value per share, and 19,000,000 shares of preferred stock, $0.001 par value per share.

 

As of the date of this prospectus, 478,638,436 shares of our common stock and 9,411,998 shares of our Series A Convertible Preferred Stock were issued and outstanding.

 

Common Stock

 

Holders of the Company’s common stock are entitled to one vote for each share on all matters submitted to a shareholder vote. Holders of common stock do not have cumulative voting rights. Therefore, holders of a majority of the shares of common stock voting for the election of directors can elect all of the directors. Holders of the Company’s common stock representing a majority of the voting power of the Company’s capital stock issued, outstanding and entitled to vote, represented in person or by proxy, are necessary to constitute a quorum at any meeting of shareholders. A vote by the holders of a majority of the Company’s outstanding shares is required to effectuate certain fundamental corporate changes such as liquidation, merger or an amendment to the Company’s articles of incorporation.

 

Holders of the Company’s common stock are entitled to share in all dividends that the board of directors, in its discretion, declares from legally available funds. In the event of a liquidation, dissolution or winding up, each outstanding share entitles its holder to participate pro rata in all assets that remain after payment of liabilities and after providing for each class of stock, if any, having preference over the common stock. The Company’s common stock has no pre-emptive rights, no conversion rights and there are no redemption provisions applicable to the Company’s common stock.

 

Preferred Stock

 

Our Articles of Incorporation authorize the issuance of up to 19,000,000 shares of preferred stock with designations, rights and preferences determined from time to time by its Board of Directors. Accordingly, our Board of Directors is empowered, without stockholder approval, to issue preferred stock with dividend, liquidation, conversion, voting, or other rights which could adversely affect the voting power or other rights of the holders of the common stock. In the event of issuance, the preferred stock could be utilized, under certain circumstances, as a method of discouraging, delaying or preventing a change in control of the Company.

 

Our Articles of Incorporation also authorize our Board of Director(s) to authorize the issuance from time to time of additional shares of its stock of any class, whether now or hereinafter authorized, or securities convertible into shares of its stock of any class, whether now or hereafter authorized, for such consideration as the Board of Director(s) may deem advisable, subject to such restrictions or limitation, if any, as may be set forth in the bylaws of the Corporation.

 

Series A Preferred Shares

 

The Board of Directors has designated 9,411,998 shares of our preferred stock as the Series A Preferred Shares issued in connection with the Exchange Transaction, having the following rights, features, privileges and limitations (in pertinent part):

 

Fractional Shares. Series A Preferred Shares may be issued in fractional shares.

 

31
 

 

Dividends. The Series A Preferred Shares shall be treated pari passu with the Company’s shares of common stock, except that the dividend on each Series A Preferred Share shall be equal to the amount of the dividend declared and paid on each share of common stock multiplied by the Conversion Rate (as hereinafter defined)

 

Liquidation, Dissolution, or Winding Up. Series A Preferred Shares shall be treated pari passu with common stock except that the payment on each Series A Preferred Share shall be equal to the amount of the payment on each share of common stock multiplied by the Conversion Rate.

 

Voting. The Series A Preferred Shares shall vote on all matters as a class with the holders of common stock and each Series A Preferred Share shall be entitled to the number of votes per share equal to the Conversion Rate.

 

Conversion Rate and Adjustments.

 

Conversion Rate. The Conversion Rate shall be 50 shares of common stock (as adjusted as provided for below) for each Series A Preferred Share.

 

Adjustment for Stock Splits and Combinations. If the Company shall at any time or from time to time after the issuance of the Series A Preferred Shares effect a subdivision of the outstanding common stock, the Conversion Rate then in effect immediately before that subdivision shall be proportionately increased. If the Company shall at any time or from time to time after the issuance of the Series A Preferred Shares combine the outstanding shares of common Stock, the Conversion Rate then in effect immediately before the combination shall be proportionately decreased. Any adjustment under this paragraph shall become effective at the close of business on the date the subdivision or combination becomes effective.

 

Adjustment for Merger or Reorganization, etc. If there shall occur any reorganization, recapitalization, reclassification, consolidation, or merger involving the Company in which the common stock (but not the Series A Preferred Shares) is converted into or exchanged for securities, cash, or other property, then, following any such reorganization, recapitalization, reclassification, consolidation, or merger, each Series A Preferred Share shall thereafter be convertible in lieu of the common stock into which it was convertible prior to such event into the kind and amount of securities, cash or other property that a holder of the number of shares of common stock of the Company issuable upon conversion of one Series A Preferred Share immediately prior to such reorganization, recapitalization, reclassification, consolidation, or merger would have been entitled to receive pursuant to such transaction.

 

Conversion.

 

(a) Series A Preferred Shares are convertible at the option of their holder in whole or in part at any time except that they shall not be convertible at any time that there are not a sufficient number of authorized shares of common stock not reserved for other purposes so that all outstanding Series A Preferred Shares can be converted.

 

(b) If so required by the Company, certificates surrendered for conversion shall be endorsed or accompanied by written instrument or instruments of transfer, in form satisfactory to the Company, duly executed by the registered holder or by his, her, or its attorney duly authorized in writing. As soon as practicable after a conversion and the surrender of the certificate or certificates for Series A Preferred Shares, the Company shall cause to be issued and delivered to such holder, or on his, her, or its written order, a certificate or certificates for the number of full shares of common stock issuable on such conversion and cash b) in respect of any fraction of a share of common stock otherwise issuable upon such conversion.

 

(c) All certificates or other form of ownership evidencing shares of Series A Preferred Shares (if any) that are required to be surrendered for conversion in accordance with the provisions hereof shall, from and after the date on which such preferred shares were converted, be deemed to have been retired and cancelled and the shares of Series A Preferred Shares represented thereby converted into common stock for all purposes, notwithstanding the failure of the holder or holders thereof to surrender such certificates or other form of ownership on or prior to such date. Such converted Series A Preferred Shares may not be reissued as shares of such Series, and the Company may thereafter take such appropriate action (without the need for stockholder action) as may be necessary to reduce the authorized number of Series A Preferred Shares accordingly.

 

32
 

 

Limitations on Beneficial Ownership. The Series A Preferred Shares held by a holder shall not be convertible by such holder, and the Company shall not effect any conversion of any Series A Preferred Shares held by such holder, to the extent (but only to the extent) that such holder or any of its affiliates would beneficially own in excess of 4.99% (the “Maximum Percentage”) of our common stock. To the extent the above limitation applies, the determination of whether the Series A Preferred Shares held by such holder shall be convertible (vis-à-vis other convertible, exercisable or exchangeable securities owned by such holder or any of his, her or its affiliates) and of which such securities shall be convertible, exercisable or exchangeable (as among all such securities owned by such holder and its affiliates) shall, subject to such Maximum Percentage limitation, be determined on the basis of the first submission to the Company for conversion, exercise or exchange (as the case may be). No prior inability of a holder to convert Series A Preferred Shares, or of the Company to issue shares of common stock to such holder, shall have any effect with respect to any subsequent determination of convertibility or issuance (as the case may be). For purposes of determining the Maximum Percentage, beneficial ownership and all determinations and calculations (including, without limitation, with respect to calculations of percentage ownership) shall be determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder. By written notice to the Company, any holder may increase or decrease the Maximum Percentage to any other percentage not in excess of 9.99% specified in such notice; provided that (a) any such increase will not be effective until the 61st day after such notice is delivered to the Company; and (b) any such increase or decrease will apply only to such holder sending such notice and not to any other holder.

 

LEGAL MATTERS

 

The validity of the common stock being offered hereby has been passed upon by Dale S. Bergman, P.A., Coral Gables, Florida.

 

EXPERTS

 

The audited financial statements included in this prospectus and elsewhere in the registration statement have so been included in reliance upon the report of Michael T. Studer CPA P.C., independent registered public accountants, upon the authority of said firm as experts in accounting and auditing in giving said report.

 

AVAILABLE INFORMATION

 

We have filed a registration statement on Form S-1 under the Securities Act with the SEC with respect to the shares of our common stock offered through this prospectus. This prospectus is filed as a part of that registration statement but does not contain all of the information contained in the registration statement and exhibits. Statements made in the registration statement are summaries of the material terms of the referenced contracts, agreements or documents of the company. We refer you to our registration statement and each exhibit attached to it for a more detailed description of matters involving the company. You may inspect the registration statement and exhibits, as well as periodic reports, proxy statements and other documents that we file electronically with the SEC, on the SEC’s website at http://www.sec.gov.

 

DISCLOSURE OF SEC POSITION ON INDEMNIFICATION

FOR SECURITIES ACT LIABILITIES

 

Our Articles of Incorporation provides to the fullest extent permitted by Florida Law that our directors or officers shall not be personally liable to us or our shareholders for damages for breach of such director’s or officer’s fiduciary duty. The effect of this provision of our Articles of Incorporation is to eliminate our rights and our shareholders (through shareholders’ derivative suits on behalf of our company) to recover damages against a director or officer for breach of the fiduciary duty of care as a director or officer (including breaches resulting from negligent or grossly negligent behavior), except under certain situations defined by statute. We believe that the indemnification provisions in our Articles of Incorporation, as amended, are necessary to attract and retain qualified persons as directors and officers.

 

Our Bylaws also provide that the Board of Directors may also authorize us to indemnify our employees or agents, and to advance the reasonable expenses of such persons, to the same extent, following the same determinations and upon the same conditions as are required for the indemnification of and advancement of expenses to our directors and officers. As of the date of this Registration Statement, the Board of Directors has not extended indemnification rights to persons other than directors and officers.

 

Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers or persons controlling us pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, we have been advised that in the opinion of the SEC, such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

To the Board of Directors and Stockholders of The Greater Cannabis Company, Inc.

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of The Greater Cannabis Company, Inc. (the “Company”) as of December 31, 2020 and 2019 and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ deficiency, and cash flows for the years then ended, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the “financial statements”). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of The Greater Cannabis Company, Inc. as of December 31, 2020 and 2019 and the results of its operations and cash flows for the years then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.

 

Basis for Opinion

 

These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s financial statements based on our audit. We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (“PCAOB”) and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

 

We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. As part of our audit we are required to obtain an understanding of internal control over financial reporting but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion.

 

Our audit included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audit also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

Going Concern Uncertainty

 

The accompanying financial statements referred to above have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note B to the financial statements, the Company’s present financial situation raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in regard to this matter are also described in Note B. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Critical Audit Matters

 

The critical audit matters communicated below are matters arising from the current period audit of the financial statements that were communicated or required to be communicated to the audit committee and that: (1) relate to accounts or disclosures that are material to the financial statements and (2) involved our especially challenging, subjective, or complex judgments. The communication of critical audit matters does not alter in any way our opinion on the financial statements, taken as a whole, and we are not, by communicating the critical audit matters below, providing separate opinions on the critical audit matters or on the accounts or disclosures to which they relate.

 

Loss on conversions of notes payable and accrued interest to common stock – Refer to Note H to the consolidated financial statements

 

Critical Audit Matter Description

 

The Company has had outstanding notes payable to lenders which are convertible into Company common stock at conversion prices which are based on the future trading price of the Company’s common stock. In 2020, the Company issued a total of 425,541,995 shares of its common stock pursuant to conversions of an aggregate of $866,694 in principal and $57,717 in accrued in interest. The $1,291,604 excess of the $2,218,016 fair value of the 425,541,995 shares of common stock at the respective dates of issuance over the $924,412 liability reduction was charged to Loss on Conversions of Notes Payable.

 

How the Critical Audit Matter was Addressed in the Audit

 

Our principal audit procedures related to the Company’s loss on conversions of notes payable and accrued interest to common stock expense included:

 

  (1) We obtained Company prepared quarterly schedules of all conversions of notes payable and accrued interest to common stock in 2020.
     
  (2) For the fair value measurements, we agreed the prices used to independent third party sources of closing trading prices of GCAN common stock on the respective issuance dates. We then verified the calculation by multiplying the number of shares issued times the respective closing trading prices for each conversion.
     
  (3) For the liability reduction amounts, we agreed the principal and accrued interest amounts to Notices of Conversions for each conversion.

THE GREATER CANNABIS COMPANY, INC.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

For the Years Ended December 31, 2020 and 2019

 

NOTE A – NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Nature of Operations

 

The Greater Cannabis Company, Inc. (the “Company”) was formed in March 2014 as a limited liability company under the name, The Greater Cannabis Company, LLC. The Company was a wholly owned subsidiary of Sylios Corp (“Sylios”) until March 10, 2017.

 

On July 31, 2018, the Company acquired 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of Class A common stock of Green C Corporation (“Green C”) in exchange for 9,411,998 newly issued shares of the Company’s Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Exchange”). Each share of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock is convertible into 50 shares of common stock and is entitled to vote 50 votes per share on all matters as a class with holders of common stock. Since after the Exchange was consummated, the former shareholders of Green C and their designees owned approximately 94% of the issued and outstanding voting shares of the Company, Green C is the acquirer for accounting purposes. Prior to the Exchange, the Company had no assets and nominal business operations. Accordingly, the Exchange has been treated for accounting purposes as a recapitalization by the accounting acquirer, Green C, and the accompanying consolidated financial statements of the Company reflect the assets, liabilities and operations of Green C from its inception on December 21, 2017 to July 31, 2018 and combined with the Company thereafter.

 

Green C was incorporated on December 21, 2017 under the laws of the Province of Ontario Canada with its principal place of business in North York, Ontario.

 

Green C was the owner of an exclusive, worldwide license for an eluting transmucosal patch platform (“ETP”) for non-invasive drug delivery in the cannabis field as further described in the exclusive license agreement dated June 21, 2018 with Pharmedica Ltd. (see Note J).

 

The Company’s business plan is to (i) commercialize the Technology and (ii) concentrate on cannabis related investment and development opportunities through direct equity investments, joint ventures, licensing agreements or acquisitions.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of The Greater Cannabis Company, Inc., and its wholly owned subsidiaries Green C Corporation and BioCare, Inc.

NOTE A – NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

Investments having an original maturity of 90 days or less that are readily convertible into cash are considered to be cash equivalents. For the periods presented, the Company had no in cash equivalents.

 

Income Taxes

 

In accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 740 - Income Taxes, the provision for income taxes is computed using the asset and liability method. The asset and liability method measures deferred income taxes by applying enacted statutory rates in effect at the balance sheet date to the differences between the tax basis of assets and liabilities and their reported amounts on the financial statements. The resulting deferred tax assets or liabilities are adjusted to reflect changes in tax laws as they occur. A valuation allowance is provided when it is more likely than not that a deferred tax asset will not be realized.

 

We expect to recognize the financial statement benefit of an uncertain tax position only after considering the probability that a tax authority would sustain the position in an examination. For tax positions meeting a “more-likely-than-not” threshold, the amount to be recognized in the financial statements will be the benefit expected to be realized upon settlement with the tax authority. For tax positions not meeting the threshold, no financial statement benefit is recognized. As of December 31, 2020, we had no uncertain tax positions. We recognize interest and penalties, if any, related to uncertain tax positions as general and administrative expenses. We currently have no foreign federal or state tax examinations nor have we had any foreign federal or state examinations since our inception. To date, we have not incurred any interest or tax penalties.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Financial Instruments and Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

We follow ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, for assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis. ASC Topic 820 establishes a common definition for fair value to be applied to existing US GAAP that requires the use of fair value measurements that establishes a framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosure about such fair value measurements.

 

ASC 820 defines fair value as 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. Additionally, ASC Topic 820 requires the use of valuation techniques that maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. These inputs are prioritized below:

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

For the Years Ended December 31, 2020 and 2019

 

NOTE A – NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Level 1:   Observable inputs such as quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities
Level 2:   Observable market-based inputs or unobservable inputs that are corroborated by market data
Level 3:   Unobservable inputs for which there is little or no market data, which require the use of the reporting entity’s own assumptions.

 

The carrying value of financial assets and liabilities recorded at fair value is measured on a recurring or nonrecurring basis. Financial assets and liabilities measured on a recurring basis are those that are adjusted to fair value each time a financial statement is prepared. Financial assets and liabilities measured on a non-recurring basis are those that are adjusted to fair value when a significant event occurs. Except for derivative liabilities, we had no financial assets or liabilities carried and measured on a recurring or nonrecurring basis during the reporting periods.

 

Derivative Liabilities

 

We evaluate convertible notes payable, stock options, stock warrants or other contracts to determine if those contracts or embedded components of those contracts qualify as derivatives to be separately accounted for under the relevant sections of ASC Topic 815-40, Derivative Instruments and Hedging: Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity.

 

The result of this accounting treatment could be that the fair value of a financial instrument is classified as a derivative instrument and is marked-to-market at each balance sheet date and recorded as a liability. In the event that the fair value is recorded as a liability, the change in fair value is recorded in the statement of operations as other income or other expense. Upon conversion or exercise of a derivative instrument, the instrument is marked to fair value at the conversion date and then that fair value is reclassified to equity. Financial instruments that are initially classified as equity that become subject to reclassification under ASC Topic 815-40 are reclassified to a liability account at the fair value of the instrument on the reclassification date.

 

Long-lived Assets

 

Long-lived assets such as property and equipment and intangible assets are periodically reviewed for impairment. We test for impairment losses on long-lived assets used in operations whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the asset may not be recoverable. Recoverability of an asset to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to the future undiscounted cash flows expected to be generated by the asset. If such asset is considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds its fair value. Impairment evaluations involve management’s estimates on asset useful lives and future cash flows. Actual useful lives and cash flows could be different from those estimated by management which could have a material effect on our reporting results and financial positions. Fair value is determined through various valuation techniques including discounted cash flow models, quoted market values and third-party independent appraisals, as considered necessary.

NOTE A – NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Equity Instruments Issued to Non-Employees for Acquiring Goods or Services

 

Issuances of our common stock or warrants for acquiring goods or services are measured at the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instruments issued, whichever is more reliably measurable. The measurement date for the fair value of the equity instruments issued to consultants or vendors is determined at the earlier of (i) the date at which a commitment for performance to earn the equity instruments is reached (a “performance commitment” which would include a penalty considered to be of a magnitude that is a sufficiently large disincentive for nonperformance) or (ii) the date at which performance is complete.

 

Although situations may arise in which counter performance may be required over a period of time, the equity award granted to the party performing the service may be fully vested and non-forfeitable on the date of the agreement. As a result, in this situation in which vesting periods do not exist if the instruments are fully vested on the date of agreement, we determine such date to be the measurement date and will record the estimated fair market value of the instruments granted as a prepaid expense and amortize such amount to expense over the contract period. When it is appropriate for us to recognize the cost of a transaction during financial reporting periods prior to the measurement date, for purposes of recognition of costs during those periods, the equity instrument is measured at the then-current fair values.

 

Related Parties

 

A party is considered to be related to us if the party directly or indirectly or through one or more intermediaries, controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with us. Related parties also include our principal owners, our management, members of the immediate families of our principal owners and our management and other parties with which we may deal if one party controls or can significantly influence the management or operating policies of the other to an extent that one of the transacting parties might be prevented from fully pursuing its own separate interests. A party which can significantly influence the management or operating policies of the transacting parties, or if it has an ownership interest in one of the transacting parties and can significantly influence the other to an extent that one or more of the transacting parties might be prevented from fully pursuing its own separate interests, is also a related party.

NOTE A – NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Revenue from product sales is recognized when all of the following criteria are met: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, (2) the price is fixed or determinable, (3) collectability is reasonably assured, and (4) delivery has occurred.

 

Advertising Costs

 

Advertising costs are expensed as incurred. For the periods presented, we had no advertising costs.

 

Loss per Share

 

We compute net loss per share in accordance with FASB ASC 260. The ASC specifies the computation, presentation and disclosure requirements for loss per share for entities with publicly held common stock.

 

Basic loss per share amounts is computed by dividing the net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted net loss per common share is computed on the basis of the weighted average number of common shares and dilutive securities (such as stock options, warrants and convertible securities) outstanding. Dilutive securities having an anti-dilutive effect on diluted net loss per share are excluded from the calculation. For the periods presented, the Company excluded 470,599,900 shares relating to the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (see Note H), shares relating to convertible notes payable to third parties (Please see NOTE F - NOTES PAYABLE TO THIRD PARTIES for further information) and shares relating to outstanding warrants (Please see NOTE H - CAPITAL STOCK AND WARRANTS for further information) from the calculation of diluted shares outstanding as the effect of their inclusion would be anti-dilutive.

 

Recently Enacted Accounting Standards

 

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which supersedes nearly all prior revenue recognition guidance under U.S. GAAP. The core principle of ASU 2014-09 is to recognize revenues when promised goods or services are transferred to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which an entity expects to be entitled for those goods or services. ASU 2014-09 defines a five-step process to achieve this core principle and, in doing so, more judgment and estimates may be required within the revenue recognition process than are required under prior U.S. GAAP. As amended by the FASB in July 2015, the standard became effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017, and interim periods therein. ASU 2014-09 has had no impact on our Financial statements for the periods presented.

NOTE A – NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-08, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Principal versus Agent Considerations, to clarify the implementation guidance on principal versus agent considerations and address how an entity should assess whether it is the principal or the agent in contracts that include three or more parties. The effective date and transition requirements for these amendments are the same as the effective date and transition requirements of ASU 2014-09 (discussed above). ASU 2016-08 has had no impact on our Financial statements for the periods presented.

 

In April 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-10, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing, to clarify the following two aspects of Topic 606: 1) identifying performance obligations, and 2) the licensing implementation guidance. The effective date and transition requirements for these amendments are the same as the effective date and transition requirements of ASU 2014-09 (discussed above). ASU 2016-10 has had no impact on our financial statements for the periods presented.

 

On July 13, 2017, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2017-11. Among other things, ASU 2017-11 provides guidance that eliminates the requirement to consider “down round” features when determining whether certain financial instruments or embedded features are indexed to an entity’s stock and need to be classified as liabilities. ASU 2017-11 provides for entities to recognize the effect of a down round feature only when it is triggered and then as a dividend and a reduction to income available to common stockholders in basic earnings per share. The guidance is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018.

 

Accordingly, effective January 1, 2019, the Company reduced the derivative liability of warrants with “down round” features (and do not contain variable conversion features) of $108,427 at December 31, 2018 to $0 and recognized a $108,427 cumulative effect adjustment reduction of accumulated deficit.

NOTE B - GOING CONCERN

 

Under ASC 205-40, we have the responsibility to evaluate whether conditions and/or events raise substantial doubt about our ability to meet our future obligations as they become due within one year after the date the financial statements are issued. As required by this standard, our evaluation shall initially not take into consideration the potential mitigating effects of our plans that have not been fully implemented as of the date the financial statements are issued.

 

In performing the first step of this assessment, we concluded that the following conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to meet our financial obligations as they become due. As of December 31, 2020, the Company had cash of $112,953, total current liabilities of $459,908, and negative working capital of $300,205. For the year ended December 31, 2020, we incurred a net loss of $951,170 and used $289,627 cash from operating activities. We expect to continue to incur negative cash flows until such time as our business generates sufficient cash inflows to finance our operations and debt service requirements.

 

In performing the second step of this assessment, we are required to evaluate whether our plans to mitigate the conditions above alleviate the substantial doubt about our ability to meet our obligations as they become due within one year after the date that the financial statements are issued. Our future plans include securing additional funding sources.

 

There is no assurance that sufficient funds required during the next year or thereafter will be generated from operations or that funds will be available through external sources. The lack of additional capital resulting from the inability to generate cash flow from operations or to raise capital from external sources would force the Company to substantially curtail or cease operations and would, therefore, have a material effect on the business. Furthermore, there can be no assurance that any such required funds, if available, will be available on attractive terms or that they will not have a significant dilutive effect on the Company’s existing shareholders. We have therefore concluded there is substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern through March 2022.

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going-concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classification of liabilities that may result from the outcome of the uncertainty related to our ability to continue as a going concern.

 

NOTE C- NOTE RECEIVABLE

 

On June 10, 2020, in anticipation of developing a CBD business with Kol Tuv Ventures, LLC (the “Borrower”) (see Note D), the Company agreed to lend the Borrower USD $50,000 to be repaid either (a) out of available cash as soon as practicable, including from sales of Bob Ross cosmetic products, or (b) on the date that is 18 months from the date thereof, whichever is earlier (the “Maturity Date”). The Loan shall not bear interest except to the extent that any part of the Loan remains outstanding as at the Maturity Date, in which case the following sentence applies. From the date after the Maturity Date and onward, the outstanding principal amount of the Loan shall bear interest at a rate of 2% per annum. Any payment of cash to be made by Borrower to Lender shall be applied first to outstanding principal and second to any accrued, but unpaid, interest. As of December 31, 2020, the balance of the note was $ 36,750.
