WEED, INC.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
AS OF MARCH 31, 2020
(UNAUDITED)
 
Note 1 – Nature of Business and Significant Accounting Policies
 
Nature of Business
WEED, Inc. (the “Company”), (formerly United Mines, Inc.) was incorporated under the laws of the State of Arizona on August 20, 1999 (“Inception Date”) as Plae, Inc. to engage in the exploration of gold and silver mining properties. On November 26, 2014, the Company was renamed from United Mines, Inc. to WEED, Inc. and was repurposed to pursue a business involving the purchase of land, and building Commercial Grade “Cultivation Centers” to consult, assist, manage & lease to Licensed Dispensary owners and organic grow operators on a contract basis, with a concentration on the legal and medical marijuana sector. The Company’s plan is to become a True “Seed-to-Sale” company providing infrastructure, financial solutions and real estate options in this new emerging market. The Company, under United Mines, was formerly in the process of acquiring mineral properties or claims located in the State of Arizona, USA. The name was previously changed on February 18, 2005 to King Mines, Inc. and then subsequently changed to United Mines, Inc. on March 30, 2005. The Company trades on the OTC Pink Sheets under the stock symbol: BUDZ.
 
On April 20, 2017, the Company acquired Sangre AT, LLC, a Wyoming company doing business as Sangre AgroTech. (“Sangre”). Sangre is a plant genomic research and breeding company comprised of top-echelon scientists with extensive expertise in genomic sequencing, genetics-based breeding, plant tissue culture, and plant biochemistry, utilizing the most advanced sequencing and analytical technologies and proprietary bioinformatics data systems available. No work is being conducted now until further funds are available.
 
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. These statements reflect all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, which in the opinion of management are necessary for fair presentation of the information contained therein.
 
The Company has a calendar year end for reporting purposes.
 
Basis of Presentation:
The accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet at December 31, 2019, has been derived from audited consolidated financial statements and the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements as of March 31, 2020 and 2019 ( the “financial statements”), have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and related footnotes included in our Registration Statement on Form S-1 for the year ended December 31, 2019 (the “2019 Annual Report”), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). It is management’s opinion, however, that all material adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments), have been made which are necessary for a fair financial statements presentation. The condensed consolidated financial statements include all material adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) necessary to make the condensed consolidated financial statements not misleading as required by Regulation S-X, Rule 10-01.

These statements reflect all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, which in the opinion of management are necessary for fair presentation of the information contained therein.

Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
 
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
Under FASB ASC 820-10-05, the Financial Accounting Standards Board establishes a framework for measuring fair value in generally accepted accounting principles and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. This Statement reaffirms that fair value is the relevant measurement attribute. The adoption of this standard did not have a material effect on the Company’s financial statements as reflected herein. The carrying amounts of cash, prepaid expenses and accrued expenses reported on the balance sheet are estimated by management to approximate fair value primarily due to the short term nature of the instruments.
 
Impairment of Long-Lived Assets
Long-lived assets held and used by the Company are reviewed for possible impairment whenever events or circumstances indicate the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable or is impaired. Recoverability is assessed using undiscounted cash flows based upon historical results and current projections of earnings before interest and taxes. Impairment is measured using discounted cash flows of future operating results based upon a rate that corresponds to the cost of capital. Impairments are recognized in operating results to the extent that carrying value exceeds discounted cash flows of future operations.
 
Basic and Diluted Loss Per Share
The basic net loss per common share is computed by dividing the net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted net loss per common share is computed by dividing the net loss adjusted on an “as if converted” basis, by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding plus potential dilutive securities. For the periods presented, potential dilutive securities had an anti-dilutive effect and were not included in the calculation of diluted net loss per common share.
 
Stock-Based Compensation
Under FASB ASC 718-10-30-2, all share-based payments to employees, including grants of employee stock options, to be recognized in the income statement based on their fair values. Pro forma disclosure is no longer an alternative.
 
Revenue Recognition
On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted the new revenue recognition standard ASU 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)”, using the cumulative effect (modified retrospective) approach. Modified retrospective adoption requires entities to apply the standard retrospectively to the most current period presented in the financial statements, requiring the cumulative effect of the retrospective application as an adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings at the date of initial application. No cumulative-effect adjustment in retained earnings was recorded as the Company’s has no historical revenue. The impact of the adoption of the new standard was not material to the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The Company expects the impact to be immaterial on an ongoing basis.
 
The primary change under the new guidance is the requirement to report the allowance for uncollectible accounts as a reduction in net revenue as opposed to bad debt expense, a component of operating expenses. The adoption of this guidance did not have an impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements, other than additional financial statement disclosures. The guidance requires increased disclosures, including qualitative and quantitative disclosures about the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers.
 
The Company operates as one reportable segment.
 
Sales on fixed price contracts are recorded when services are earned, the earnings process is complete or substantially complete, and the revenue is measurable and collectability is reasonably assured. Provisions for discounts and rebates to customers, estimated returns and allowances, and other adjustments are provided for in the same period the related sales are recorded. The Company will defer any revenue from sales in which payment has been received, but the earnings process has not occurred. Sales have not yet commenced.
 
Advertising and Promotion
All costs associated with advertising and promoting products are expensed as incurred. These expenses were $0 and $1,247 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-15 Accounting for Implementation Costs Related to Cloud Computing or Hosting Arrangements. This standard provides authoritative guidance intended to address a customer’s accounting for implementation costs incurred in a cloud computing arrangement that is a service contract. This guidance aligns the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred in a hosting arrangement that is a service contract with the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred to develop or obtain internal-use software. The guidance also requires presentation of the capitalized implementation costs in the statement of financial position and in the statement of cash flows in the same line item that a prepayment for the fees of the associated hosting arrangement would be presented, and the expense related to the capitalized implementation costs to be presented in the same line item in the statement of operations as the fees associated with the hosting element (service) of the arrangement. This guidance is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those annual periods, with early adoption permitted. We are currently evaluating the potential impact on our financial position, results of operations and statement of cash flows upon adoption of this guidance. We do not expect this guidance to have a significant impact, or potential significant impact, to our unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements.
 
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases. The standard requires lessees to recognize lease assets and lease liabilities on the consolidated balance sheet and requires expanded disclosures about leasing arrangements. We adopted the standard, effective January 1, 2019, and the new standard has no material impact on our consolidated financial statements. We are currently assessing the impact that the new standard will have on our consolidated financial statements, which will consist primarily of a balance sheet gross up of our operating leases to show equal and offsetting lease assets and lease liabilities.
 
The Company adopted the new lease guidance effective January 1, 2019 using the modified retrospective transition approach, applying the new standard to all of its leases existing at the date of initial application which is the effective date of adoption. Consequently, financial information will not be updated and the disclosures required under the new standard will not be provided for dates and periods before January 1, 2019. We elected the package of practical expedients which permits us to not reassess (1) whether any expired or existing contracts are or contain leases, (2) the lease classification for any expired or existing leases, and (3) any initial direct costs for any existing leases as of the effective date. We did not elect the hindsight practical expedient which permits entities to use hindsight in determining the lease term and assessing impairment. The adoption of the lease standard did not change our previously reported consolidated statements of operations and did not result in a cumulative catch-up adjustment to opening equity. As of December 31, 2019, the adoption of the standard had no impact on the Company, as there were no leases in place longer than 12 months.
 
In June 2018, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2018-07, Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718) Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting. This ASU expands the scope of Topic 718 to include share-based payment transactions for acquiring goods and services from nonemployees. The amendments in this ASU became effective beginning January 1, 2019, and it does not have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements.
 
Note 2 – Going Concern
 
As shown in the accompanying financial statements, the Company has no revenues, incurred net losses from operations resulting in an accumulated deficit of $79,030,309 and negative working capital of 676,999 at March 31, 2020. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management is actively pursuing new products and services to begin generating revenues. In addition, the Company is currently seeking additional sources of capital to fund short term operations. The Company, however, is dependent upon its ability to secure equity and/or debt financing and there are no assurances that the Company will be successful; therefore, without sufficient financing it would be unlikely for the Company to continue as a going concern.
 
The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of any uncertainty as to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements also do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or amounts and classifications of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

Note 4 – Fair Value of Financial Instruments
 
Under FASB ASC 820-10-5, fair value is defined 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 (an exit price). The standard outlines a valuation framework and creates a fair value hierarchy in order to increase the consistency and comparability of fair value measurements and the related disclosures. Under GAAP, certain assets and liabilities must be measured at fair value, and FASB ASC 820-10-50 details the disclosures that are required for items measured at fair value.
 
The Company has certain financial instruments that must be measured under the new fair value standard. The Company’s financial assets and liabilities are measured using inputs from the three levels of the fair value hierarchy. The three levels are as follows:
 
Level 1 - Inputs are unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the Company has the ability to access at the measurement date.
 
Level 2 - Inputs include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability (e.g., interest rates, yield curves, etc.), and inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means (market corroborated inputs).
 
Level 3 - Unobservable inputs that reflect our assumptions about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability.
 
The following schedule summarizes the valuation of financial instruments at fair value on a recurring basis in the balance sheets as of March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively:

Note 10 – Commitments and Contingencies
 
On November 8, 2016, the Company entered into an agreement with Gregory DiPaolo’s Pro Am Golf, LLC to acquire improved property located in Westfield, New York. The total purchase price of $1,600,000 is to be paid with a deposit of 50,000 shares of common stock, followed by cash of $1,250,000 and 300,000 shares of the Company’s common stock to be delivered at closing. The deposit of 50,000 shares issued as a deposit was $42,500 based on the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant. Subsequently, we entered into an amended Purchase and Sale Agreement on October 24, 2017, under which we amended the total purchase price to Eight Hundred Thousand Dollars ($800,000) and forfeited our previous deposit of stock. Under the terms of the amended agreement, we paid an additional Ten Thousand Dollar ($10,000) deposit on October 26, 2017, with the remaining purchase price to be paid on or before the date closing date, which was scheduled on May 1, 2018. The property is approximately 43 acres and has unlimited water extraction rights from the State of New York. We had planned to use this property as our inroads to the New York hemp and infused beverage markets in the future. Since the property was in foreclosure it was put up for auction, which occurred on July 1, 2019. At the auction, we were the winning bidder with a bid of $597,000. Our prior deposit payment of $120,000 was credited towards the purchase price, and the remaining $477,000, was finally due on November 30, 2019, after several extensions (which cost us total of $40,000 to obtain). At the end of December 31, 2019, a total of $92,00 was issued as a deposit for the property. We were not able to meet that deadline, but in January 2020 we worked out an additional extension with the bank. Under the terms of the new agreement, we still owe approximately $392,000 to acquire the property. We have agreed to pay that amount in installment payments of $10,000 per month for six months beginning February 2020, with a balloon payment of approximately $332,000 due on or before August 3, 2020. To date we have paid the $10,000 payments for February 2020, March 2020, April 2020 and May 2020, and plan to pay the June 2020 payment on time. We need to raise funds in order to make the remaining scheduled payments.

On January 19, 2018, the Company was sued in the United States District Court for the District of Arizona ( William Martin v. WEED, Inc.. , Case No. 4:18-cv-00027-RM) by the listed Plaintiff. The Company was served with the Verified Complaint on January 26, 2018. The Complaint alleges claims for breach of contract-specific performance, breach of contract-damages, breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, conversion, and injunctive relief. In addition to the Verified Complaint, the Company was served with an application to show cause for a temporary restraining order. The Verified Complaint alleges the Company entered into a contract with the Plaintiff on October 1, 2014 for the Plaintiff to perform certain consulting services for the Company in exchange for 500,000 shares of its common stock up front and an additional 700,000 shares of common stock to be issued on May 31, 2015. The Plaintiff alleges he completed the requested services under the agreement and received the initial 500,000 shares of common stock, but not the additional 700,000 shares. The request for injunctive relief asks the Court to Order the Company to issue the Plaintiff 700,000 shares of its common stock, and possibly include them in its Registration Statement on Form S-1, or, in the alternative, issue the shares and have them held by the Court pending resolution of the litigation, or, alternatively, sell the shares and deposit the sale proceeds in an account that the Court will control. The hearing on the Temporary Restraining Order occurred on January 29, 2018. On January 30, 2018, the Court issued its ruling denying the application for a Temporary Restraining Order. Currently, there is no further hearing scheduled in this matter. On February 13, 2018, the Company filed an Answer to the Verified Complaint and Counterclaim. On February 15, 2018, the Company filed a Motion to Dismiss the Verified Complaint. On February 23, 2018, the Company filed a Motion to Amend Counterclaim to add W. Martin’s wife, Joanna Martin as a counterdefendant. On March 9, 2018, William Martin filed a Motion to Dismiss the Counterclaim. On March 12, 2018, William Martin filed a Motion to Amend the Verified Complaint to, among other things, add claims against Glenn Martin and Nicole and Ryan Breen. On March 27, 2018, the Court granted both William Martin and WEED, Inc.’s Motions to Amend. On March 27, 2018, the Company filed an Amended Counterclaim adding Joanna Martin. On April 2, 2018, the Company filed a Motion to Amend our Counterclaim to add a breach of contract claim. On April 10, 2018, the Company filed an Answer to First Amended Verified Complaint. On April 23, 2018, Glenn Martin and Nicole and Ryan Breen filed their Answer to the First Amended Complaint. On May 31, 2018, the Court issued an Order: (a) granting the Company’s Motion to Dismiss thereby dismissing the Plaintiff’s claims for breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing and the claim for conversion, (b) denying William Martin’s Motion to Dismiss the counterclaim as to the claims for fraudulent concealment and fraudulent misrepresentation, but granting the Motion to Dismiss only as to the claim for fraudulent nondisclosure, and (c) granting the Company’s Motion to Amend its Counterclaim to add a breach of contract claim. On June 1, 2018, William Martin and his wife filed their Answer to the First Amended Counterclaim. On June 1, 2018, William Martin and his wife filed their Answer to the Second Amended Counterclaim. In addition to the above pleadings and motions, the parties have exchanged disclosure statements and served and responded to written discovery. The Company denies the Plaintiff’s allegations in the Verified Complaint in their entirety and plan to vigorously defend against this lawsuit. Due to the loss not being probable, no accrual has been recorded for the 700,000 shares of common stock the Plaintiff alleges he is owed under his agreement with the Company.
 
Travis Nelson v. Sangre AgroTech, LLC, et al. (Huerfeno County Colorado District Court, Case No. 2018CV30003, filed on February 5, 2018). Mr. Travis Nelson, formerly a member of the subsidiary Sangre AgroTech, LLC, filed this action alleging wrongful discharge in retaliation for whistleblower activity purportedly related to insider trading, fraud and unlawful interstate transportation of plant genetics. After a motion to dismiss was granted in part, Mr. Nelson filed a second amended complaint asserting revised claims for breach of fiduciary duty, wrongful discharge, and violation of the Colorado organized crime control act. Mr. Nelson has alleged lost wages in the amount of $600,000, unspecified losses related to whistleblower allegations, plus costs and attorneys’ fees. In his initial disclosures, Mr. Nelson alleges damages of $10,000,000. On January 31, 2019, Mr. Nelson submitted an offer of judgement in the amount of $100,000. That offer was rejected by the Corporation. Court-ordered mediation was conducted on April 24, 2019, but the matter was not resolved. By order dated February 4, 2020, the court scheduled trial for October 5, 2020. The Corporation denies liability as to all claims. Inasmuch as an unfavorable outcome is neither probable nor remote within the meaning of the ABA Statement of Policy referred to in the last paragraph of this letter, we decline to express an opinion concerning the likely outcome of this matter or the liability of the Corporation, if any, associated therewith.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations Disclaimer Regarding Forward Looking Statements
 
Our Management’s Discussion and Analysis or Plan of Operations contains not only statements that are historical facts, but also statements that are forward-looking. Forward-looking statements are, by their very nature, uncertain and risky. These risks and uncertainties include international, national and local general economic and market conditions; demographic changes; our ability to sustain, manage, or forecast growth; our ability to successfully make and integrate acquisitions; raw material costs and availability; new product development and introduction; existing government regulations and changes in, or the failure to comply with, government regulations; adverse publicity; competition; the loss of significant customers or suppliers; fluctuations and difficulty in forecasting operating results; changes in business strategy or development plans; business disruptions; the ability to attract and retain qualified personnel; the ability to protect technology; and other risks that might be detailed from time to time in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
 
Although the forward-looking statements in this Quarterly Report reflect the good faith judgment of our management, such statements can only be based on facts and factors currently known by them. Consequently, and because forward-looking statements are inherently subject to risks and uncertainties, the actual results and outcomes may differ materially from the results and outcomes discussed in the forward-looking statements. You are urged to carefully review and consider the various disclosures made by us in this report and in our other reports as we attempt to advise interested parties of the risks and factors that may affect our business, financial condition, and results of operations and prospects.
 
Overview
 
We are an early stage holding company currently focused on the development and application of cannabis-derived compounds for the treatment of human disease. Our wholly-owned subsidiary, Sangre AT, LLC (“Sangre”), has begun a planned five-year Cannabis Genomic Study to complete a genetic blueprint of the Cannabis plant genus, by creating a global genomic classification of the entire plant. By targeting cannabis-derived molecules that stimulate the endocannabinoid system, Sangre’s research team plans to develop scientifically-valid and evidence-based cannabis strains for the production of disease-specific medicines. The goal of the research is to identify, collect, patent, and archive a collection of highly-active medicinal strains. We plan to conduct this study only in states where cannabis has been legalized for medicinal purposes.
 
Using annotated genomic data and newly generated phenotypic data, Sangre plans to identify and isolate regions of the plant genome which are related to growth, synthesis of desired molecules, and drought and pest resistance. This complex data set would then be utilized in a breeding program to generate and establish new hybrid cultivars which exemplify the traits that are desired by the medical and patient community. This breeding program would produce new seed stocks and clones, which we plan on patenting. If successful this intellectual property should generate immense value for the Company. After developing a comprehensive understanding of the annotated genome of a variety of cannabis strains, and obtaining intellectual property protection over the most promising strains, we plan move forward either independently or with strategic partners to develop medicinal products for the treatment of a multitude of human diseases.
 
Our current, short-term goals relate to the Cannabis Genomic Study and the resulting development of a variety of new cannabis strains, and, over the next 5 years, we plan to process those results in order to become an international cannabis research and product development company, with a globally-recognized brand focusing on building and purchasing labs, land and building commercial grade “Cultivation Centers” to consult, assist, manage & lease to universities, state governments, licensed dispensary owners and organic grow operators on a contract basis with a concentration on the legal and medical cannabis sector..
 
Our long-term plan is to become a true “Seed-to-Sale” global holding company providing infrastructure, financial solutions, product development, and real estate options in this new emerging market. Our long term growth may also come from the acquisition of synergistic businesses, such as distilleries, to make anything from infused beverages to super oxygenated water with CBD and THC. Currently, we have formed WEED Australia Ltd., registered as an unlisted public company in Australia to address this Global demand. We have also formed WEED Australia Ltd., registered as an unlisted public company in Australia, to address future global demand, however the entity has been dormant since its inception. We will look to conduct future research, marketing, import/exporting, and manufacturing of our proprietary products on an international level.
  
In furtherance of our current, short terms goals, Sangre initiated the cannabis genome project in April 2017, by extracting DNA from seven cannabis strains in Tucson, Arizona. Sangre followed the initial extraction with a second round of extractions in July 2017. The extracted DNA is currently being sequenced by the Sangre team using a binary sequencing approach based on the use of two distinct sequencing technologies and a proprietary bioinformatics database. Following the generation of genomic data, the sequences will be annotated (compared) against over 300,000 plant genes to elucidate specific de novo pathways responsible for the synthesis of specific compounds and classes of compounds.

Under the genome project directives, additional strains are slated for sequencing and annotation as part of the overall expansion of this research project. An integral part of this expansion is the acquisition of additional DNA extraction, amplification, and sequencing technologies. The expansion also includes the installation of high-level IT networks for data acquisition, analysis, and storage.
 
On July 26, 2017, we acquired a property located in La Veta, Colorado in order for Sangre to complete its 5-Year, $15+ million Cannabis Genomic Study. The site includes a 10,000+ sq. ft. building that will house Sangre’s genomic research facility, a 4,000+ square foot building for plant product analytics and plant product extraction, a 3,500 sq. ft. corporate office center, and 25 RV slots with full water and electric, which we plan to convert into a series of small research pods. Under the terms of the purchase agreement, we paid $525,000 down, along with 25,000 shares of our common stock, and Sangre took immediate possession of the property. We were obligated to pay an additional $400,000 in cash and issue an additional 75,000 shares of our common stock over the two next years in order to pay the entire purchase price. To date we have spent $354,000 renovating the property and an additional $400,000 on extraction and analytical lab equipment. We plan to complete the property renovations, at an estimated cost of $300,000, if we raise sufficient funding. We will need additional extraction equipment and analytical lab equipment, totaling approximately $700,000. During the year ended December 31, 2019, construction in progress in the amount of $499,695 was fully impaired due to the Company may not receive funds to complete the research facility center project. There was no work performed in 2019. We will need to raise additional funds in order to complete the planned renovations and pay the purchase price for the equipment.
 
WEED Inc. acquired the property in La Veta, Colorado in order to facilitate the expansion of the genomic studies and the development of new hybrid strains. The facility is currently under re-design and renovation to convert the existing structures into a world-class genetics research center.
 
A gene-based breeding program will allow us to root out inferior cultivars and replace them with fully-validated and patentable cultivars which produce consistent plant products for the medicinal markets. The gene-based breeding program will improve cultivars and introduce integrity, stability, and quality to the market in the following ways:
 
              accelerated and optimized growth rates; modern genomic resources will enhance traditional breeding methods
 
              generate new cultivars, accelerating and perfecting the art of selective breeding
 
              provide the ability to assay for specific genes within the crop, establish strain tracking, and promote market quality assurance
 
              improved disease, pest, and drought resistance of the Cannabis plant
 
We believe the gene-based breeding program will facilitate and accelerate:
 
              improved therapeutic properties, i.e., increased THC/CBD concentration and the production of specific classes of oils and terpenses
 
              enhanced opportunities for new drug discovery
 
              accelerated breeding of super-cultivars: drought, pest, and mold resistant, increased %THC
 
              revenue generation through our unique ability to breed and genetically fingerprint new, super-cultivars: establish strong patent protection; and provide these cultivars to the market on a favorable cost and royalty basis.
 
Our goal with this program is to develop a translational breeding program to establish a new collection of Cannabis cultivars for the Colorado, national, and international markets. Through the use of genetic screening technology, cultivars can be up-selected for specific traits and grown to address the needs of consumers in the medicinal market.
 
Corporate Overview
 
We were originally incorporated under the name Plae, Inc., in the State of Arizona on August 20, 1999. At the time we operated under the name Plae, Inc., no business was conducted. No books or records were maintained and no meetings were held. In essence, nothing was done after incorporation until Glenn E. Martin took possession of Plae, Inc. in January 2005. On February 18, 2005, the corporate name was changed to King Mines, Inc. and then subsequently changed to its current name, United Mines, Inc., on March 30, 2005. No shares were issued until the Company became United Mines, Inc. From 2005 until 2015, we were an exploration stage mineral exploration company that owned a number of unpatented mining claims and Arizona State Land Department claims.

On November 26, 2014, our Board of Directors approved the redomestication of our company from Arizona to Nevada (the “Articles of Domestication”), and approved Articles of Incorporation in Nevada, which differed from then-Articles of Incorporation in Arizona, primarily by (a) changing our name from United Mines, Inc. to WEED, Inc., (b) authorizing Twenty Million (20,000,000) shares of preferred stock, with blank check rights granted to our Board of Directors, and (c) authorizing Two Hundred Million (200,000,000) shares of common stock (the “Nevada Articles of Incorporation”). On December 19, 2014, the holders of a majority of our outstanding common stock approved the Articles of Domestication and the Nevada Articles of Incorporation at a Special Meeting of Shareholders. On January 16, 2015, the Articles of Domestication and the Nevada Articles of Incorporation went effective with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada. On February 2, 2015, our name change to WEED, Inc., and a corresponding ticker symbol change to “BUDZ” went effective with FINRA and was reflected on the quotation of our common stock on OTC Markets.
 
These changes were affected in order to make our corporate name and ticker symbol better align with our short-term and long-term business focus. Our current, short-term goals relate to the Cannabis Genomic Study and the resulting development of a variety of new cannabis strains, and, over the next 5 years, we plan to process those results in order to become an international cannabis research and product development company, with a globally-recognized brand focusing on building and purchasing labs, land and building commercial grade “Cultivation Centers” to consult, assist, manage & lease to universities, state governments, licensed dispensary owners and organic grow operators on a contract basis with a concentration on the legal and medical cannabis sector.
 
Our long-term plan is to become a true “Seed-to-Sale” global holding company providing infrastructure, financial solutions, product development, and real estate options in this new emerging market. Our long term growth may also come from the acquisition of synergistic businesses, such as distilleries, to make anything from infused beverages to super oxygenated water with CBD and THC. Currently, we have formed WEED Australia Ltd., registered as an unlisted public company in Australia to address this Global demand. We have also formed WEED Israel Cannabis Ltd., an Israeli corporation, to address future global demand. We will look to conduct future research, marketing, import/exporting, and manufacturing of our proprietary products on an international level.
 
On April 20, 2017, we entered into a Share Exchange Agreement with Sangre AT, LLC, a Wyoming limited liability company, under which we acquired all of the issued and outstanding limited liability company membership units of Sangre in exchange for Five Hundred Thousand (500,000) shares of our common stock, restricted in accordance with Rule 144. As a result of this agreement, Sangre is a wholly-owned subsidiary of WEED, Inc.

Operating Loss; Net Loss
 
Our net loss decreased by $8,032,140, from ($11,136,475) to ($3,104,335), from the three months ended March 31, 2019 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2020. Our operating loss decreased by $8,036,002, from ($11,135,746) to ($3,099,744) for the same period. The decrease in operating loss and net loss compared to the same period of the prior year is primarily a result of decreases in professional fees general and administrative expenses and depreciation and amortization, offset by a slight increase in our interest expense. These changes are detailed below.
 
Revenue
 
We have not had any revenues since our inception. We are company focused on the medical cannabis sector. In the short-term we plan to conduct Sangre’s Cannabis Genomic Study over the next 5 years and process those result, and in the long-term is to be a company focused on purchasing land and building commercial grade “Cultivation Centers” to consult, assist, manage & lease to licensed dispensary owners and organic grow operators on a contract basis, with a concentration on the legal and medical marijuana (Cannabis) sector. Our long-term plan is to become a True “Seed-to-Sale” company providing infrastructure, financial solutions and real estate options in this new emerging market, worldwide. We plan to make our brand global and therefore we will look for opportunities to conduct future research, marketing, import and exporting, and manufacturing of any proprietary products on an international level.
 
General and Administrative Expenses
 
General and administrative expenses decreased by $110,164, from $185,760 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 to $75,596 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, primarily due to decreases in travel, facilities maintenance, and charitable contribution expenses.
 
Professional Fees
 
Our professional fees decreased by $7,920,677 during the three months ended March 31, 2020 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2019. Our professional fees were $2,988,649 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and $10,909,326 for the three months ended March 31, 2019. These fees are largely related to fees paid for legal and accounting services, along with compensation to independent contractors, and decreased primarily as a result of a decrease in the value of stock-based compensation awards due to our lower stock price. We expect these fees to vary quarter-to-quarter as our business and stock price fluctuate if we continue to use stock-based compensation. In the event we undertake an unusual transaction, such as an acquisition, securities offering, or file a registration statement, we would expect these fees to substantially increase during that period.
 
Depreciation and Amortization
 
During the three months ended March 31, 2020 we had depreciation and amortization expense of $35,499, compared to $40,660 in the three months ended March 31, 2019. Our depreciation and amortization expense primarily relates to our property and trademark acquisitions.
 
Interest Expense
 
Interest expense increased from $249 to $4,591 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 compared to the same period in 2020. Our interest expense primarily relates to the mortgages maintained on our acquired properties.
 
Other Income
 
Other income during the three months ended March 31, 2020 was $0, compared to $1,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019. Our other income for the three months ended March 31, 2019, related to a refund from a merchant.
 
Other Expense
 
Other expense decreased from $1,480 to $0 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 compared to the same period in 2020. Our other expense for the three months ended March 31, 2020, relates to bank service charges.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
Introduction
 
During the three months ended March 31, 2020, because of our operating losses, we did not generate positive operating cash flows. Our cash on hand as of March 31, 2020 was $5,404 and our monthly cash flow burn rate was approximately $45,000. Our cash on hand was primarily proceeds from the sales of our securities. We currently do not believe we will be able to satisfy our cash needs from our revenues for many years to come.
 
Our cash, current assets, total assets, current liabilities, and total liabilities as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively, are as follows:

Our total assets decreased by $6,435 as of March 31, 2020 as compared to December 31, 2019. The slight decrease in our total assets between the two periods was primarily attributed to decreases in our property and equipment, net (due to depreciation) and our prepaid expenses, partially offset by increases in our cash and deposits at March 31, 2020 compared to December 31, 2019.
 
Our current liabilities and total liabilities increased by $79,403, as of March 31, 2020 as compared to December 31, 2019. This increase was due to increases in accounts payable, accrued officer compensation, notes payable, related party, accrued expenses, and accrued interest, partially offset by a decrease in notes payable.
 
In order to pay our obligations in full or in part when due, we will be required to raise capital from other sources. There is no assurance, however, that we will be successful in these efforts.
 
Cash Requirements
 
We had cash available of $5,404 and $2,509 as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively. Based on our revenues, cash on hand and current monthly burn rate of approximately $45,000, we will need to continue borrowing from our shareholders and other related parties, and/or raise money from the sales of our securities, to fund operations.
 
Sources and Uses of Cash
 
Operations
 
We had net cash used in operating activities of $101,257 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, as compared to $333,086 for the three months ended March 31, 2019. For the period in 2020, the net cash used in operating activities consisted primarily of our net loss of ($3,104,335), adjusted by estimated fair value of stock-based compensation of $2,015,911, estimated value of shares issued for services of $907,700, and depreciation and amortization of $35,499, and adjusted by an increase in prepaid expenses and other assets of $26,169, and increases in accounts payable of $26,076 and accrued expenses of $44,061. For the period in 2019, the net cash used in operating activities consisted primarily of our net loss of ($11,136,475), offset by estimated fair value of stock-based compensation of $9,680,572, estimated value of shares issued for services of $802,050, and depreciation and amortization of $40,660, and adjusted by an increase in prepaid expenses and other assets of $250,754, a decrease in accrued expenses of $8,249, and a decrease in accounts payable of $21,482.
 
Investments
 
For the three months ended March 31, 2020, we did not have any cash flows in investing activities. For the period in 2019, the net cash used in investing activities of $2,979, with the entire amount related to purchases of property and equipment.
 
 
27
 
 
Financing
 
Our net cash provided by financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2020 was $104,266, compared to $350,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019. For the period in 2020, our financing activities related to proceeds from the sale of common stock of $40,000, proceeds from notes payable of $1,306, proceeds from notes payable-related party of $22,000, and stock payable of $150,000, partially offset by repayments on notes payable of $14,040. For the period in 2019, our financing activities related to proceeds from the sale of common stock of $200,000, and stock payable of $150,000.

ITEM 4 
Controls and Procedures
 
(a)
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls Procedures
 
Disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms. Disclosure and control procedures are also designed to ensure that such information is accumulated and communicated to management, including the chief executive officer and chief financial officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.
 
As of March 31, 2020, we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of management, including our chief executive officer (our Principal Executive Officer) and chief financial officer (our Principal Financial Officer), of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures. In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognizes that there are inherent limitations to the effectiveness of any system of disclosure controls and procedures, including the possibility of human error and the circumvention or overriding of the controls and procedures. Accordingly, even effective disclosure controls and procedures can only provide reasonable assurance of achieving their desired control objectives. Additionally, in evaluating and implementing possible controls and procedures, management is required to apply its reasonable judgment. We also do not have an audit committee. Based on the evaluation described above, and as a result, in part, of not having an audit committee and having one individual serve as our chief executive officer and chief financial officer has concluded that, as of the end of the period covered by this report, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of March 31, 2020 to the same extent they were not effective as of December 31, 2019.
 
In addition to the deficiencies previously reported, we do not have formal processes related to the identification and approval of related party transactions.
 
As funds become available to us, we expect to implement additional measures to improve disclosure controls and procedures.
 
(b)
Changes in Internal Controls over Financial Reporting
 
There was no change in our internal controls over financial reporting that occurred during the period covered by this report, which has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting.
 
(c)
Officer’s Certifications
 
Appearing as an exhibit to this quarterly report on Form 10-Q are “Certifications” of our Chief Executive and Financial Officer. The Certifications are required pursuant to Sections 302 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (the “Section 302 Certifications”). This section of the quarterly report on Form 10-Q contains information concerning the Controls Evaluation referred to in the Section 302 Certifications. This information should be read in conjunction with the Section 302 Certifications for a more complete understanding of the topics presented.

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION
 
ITEM 1                      Legal Proceedings
 
William Martin v. WEED, Inc. et al
 
On January 19, 2018, we were sued in the United States District Court for the District of Arizona (William Martin v. WEED, Inc., Case No. 4:18-cv-00027-RM) by the listed Plaintiff. We were served with the Verified Complaint on January 26, 2018. The Complaint alleges claims for breach of contract-specific performance, breach of contract-damages, breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, conversion, and injunctive relief. In addition to the Verified Complaint, we were served with an application to show cause for a temporary restraining order. The Verified Complaint alleges we entered into a contract with the Plaintiff on October 1, 2014 for the Plaintiff to perform certain consulting services for the company in exchange for 500,000 shares of our common stock up front and an additional 700,000 shares of common stock to be issued on May 31, 2015. The Plaintiff alleges he completed the requested services under the agreement and received the initial 500,000 shares of common stock, but not the additional 700,000 shares. The request for injunctive relief asks the Court to Order us to issue the Plaintiff 700,000 shares of our common stock, and possibly include them in our previously-filed Registration Statement on Form S-1, or, in the alternative, issue the shares and have them held by the Court pending resolution of the litigation, or, alternatively, sell the shares and deposit the sale proceeds in an account that the Court will control. The hearing on the Temporary Restraining Order occurred on January 29, 2018. On January 30, 2018, the Court issued its ruling denying the application for a Temporary Restraining Order.
 
On February 13, 2018, we filed an Answer to the Verified Complaint and a Counterclaim. In the original Counterclaim we named William Martin as the sole counter-defendant, and alleged, that based upon William Martin’s representations and recommendation, WEED, Inc. hired Michael Ryan as a consultant. We allege that William Martin misrepresented, failed to disclose, and concealed facts from us concerning the relationship between him and Michael Ryan. We were seeking compensatory damages caused by William Martin’s misrepresentation, failure to disclose, and concealment.
 
On February 15, 2018, we filed a Motion to Dismiss the Verified Complaint. On February 23, 2018, we filed a Motion to Amend Counterclaim to add W. Martin’s wife, Joanna Martin as a counterdefendant. On March 9, 2018, William Martin filed a Motion to Dismiss the Counterclaim. On March 12, 2018, William Martin filed a Motion to Amend the Verified Complaint to, among other things, add claims against Glenn Martin and Nicole and Ryan Breen. On March 27, 2018, the Court granted both William Martin and WEED, Inc.’s Motions to Amend. On March 27, 2018, we filed an Amended Counterclaim adding Joanna Martin. On April 2, 2018, we filed a Motion to Amend our Counterclaim to add a breach of contract claim. On April 10, 2018, we filed an Answer to First Amended Verified Complaint. On April 23, 2018, Glenn Martin and Nicole and Ryan Breen filed their Answer to the First Amended Complaint. On May 31, 2018, the Court issued an Order: (a) granting our Motion to Dismiss thereby dismissing the claims for breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing and the claim for conversion, (b) denying William Martin’s Motion to Dismiss the counterclaim as to the claims for fraudulent concealment and fraudulent misrepresentation, but granting the Motion to Dismiss only as to the claim for fraudulent nondisclosure, and (c) granting our Motion to Amend our Counterclaim to add a breach of contract claim. In our breach of contract claim, we allege William Martin breached his Consulting Agreement with us by failing to perform consulting services to us in a professional and timely manner using the highest degree of skill, diligence, and expertise pursuant to the Consulting Agreement. We are seeking an award of compensatory damages caused by the breach of the Consulting Agreement, together with attorney’s fees and costs. On June 1, 2018, William Martin and his wife filed their Answer to the First Amended Counterclaim. On June 1, 2018, William Martin and his wife filed their Answer to the Second Amended Counterclaim.
 
The parties have conducted discovery and disclosure, including the production by WEED, Inc. of voluminous electronically stored information and the depositions of William, Martin, Glenn E. Martin, Michael Ryan, and Chris Richardson. No other depositions are presently anticipated.
 
On September 14, 2018, WEED, Inc. filed a Motion for Partial Summary Judgment (MPSJ) seeking the dismissal of all remaining claims in the First Amended Complaint. On November 26, 2018, plaintiff filed an opposition to the motion for partial summary judgment, together with a cross-motion for summary judgment on both plaintiff’s claims and the Corporation’s counterclaims. Those motions have been fully briefed. Originally, the Court set oral argument on the motions for May 16, 2019, but that hearing has been postponed by the Court due to health issues with Plaintiff’s counsel. Subsequently, Plaintiff’s counsel withdrew and consequently, William Martin and his wife are unrepresented. By order of the Court, the Parties participated in a judicial settlement conference August 21, 2019 with Magistrate Judge Thomas Ferraro, but the case did not settle. On October 15, 2019, Judge Marquez heard oral argument on the cross-motions for partial summary judgment. The judge took the motions under considerations. On November 21, 2019, the Judge issued a ruling, which (i) granted our motion for summary judgment as to the Plaintiff’s claim for fraudulent transfer, and as a result Glenn Martin, Nicole Breen, Ryan Breen and GEM Management Group, LLC were dismissed from the lawsuit, (ii) denied our motion to dismiss Plaintiff’s claims for breach of contract, and (iii) granted Plaintiff’s motion to dismiss our claims for fraudulent misrepresentation/concealment, which acted to dismiss our claims against the Plaintiffs. As a result of this ruling, the remaining claim in the lawsuit was one for breach of contract against WEED, Inc.
 
 
 
29
 
 
On March 5, 2020, the Plaintiffs filed a Motion to Dismiss the remaining counts in the lawsuit, without prejudice. On March 5, 2020, we filed a Response to the Motion to Dismiss stating that we did not object to the Plaintiff’s motion. As a result, on March 10, 2020, the Court entered an Order dismissing Plaintiff’s remaining counts in the Complaint without prejudice. The only remaining claims relate to awards for attorneys’ fees, with the Parties motions due on March 31, 2020, if they elect to file one.
 
Travis Nelson v. WEED, Inc.
 
On February 5, 2018, we were sued in Huerfano County, Colorado District Court (Travis Nelson v. WEED, Inc., et al., Case No. 18CV30003) by the listed Plaintiff. After we successfully pursued motions to dismiss Plaintiff’s two initial Complaints, the Court issued an Order on October 1, 2018 granting Plaintiff permission to file a Second Amended Complaint, which was then filed on October 22, 2018. The Second Amended Complaint includes three claims: 1) breach of fiduciary duty/shareholder derivative action; 2) a claim under Colorado’s Organized Crime Control Act; and 3) a wrongful discharge claim. We have answered the Second Amended Complaint, denying all allegations and alleging that the decision not to offer employment to Nelson, the core factual dispute in this case, was the result of pre-employment background checks that showed Nelson had an extensive, violent criminal history. The parties exchanged Initial Disclosures on November 11, 2018. We still have a motion pending with the Court that seeks attorneys’ fees in the amount of $53,000 for the expense of defending the first two Complaints. On January 31, 2019, Plaintiff submitted an Offer of Judgment under Colorado Statute §13-17-202 offering to dismiss the case in exchange for payment of $100,000. The Company has rejected this offer. Plaintiff served us with written discovery that we responded to in March 2019. The parties attended mediation in April 2019, but the case did not settle. The Court has set a trial date for October 5, 2020, but we are not sure if this matter will go forward at that time due to the current coronavirus concerns. We believe that the Plaintiff’s allegations are baseless and plan to vigorously defend against this lawsuit. We have not accrued any expenses related to this lawsuit due to the loss not being probable.
 
In the ordinary course of business, we are from time to time involved in various pending or threatened legal actions. The litigation process is inherently uncertain and it is possible that the resolution of such matters might have a material adverse effect upon our financial condition and/or results of operations. However, in the opinion of our management, other than as set forth herein, matters currently pending or threatened against us are not expected to have a material adverse effect on our financial position or results of operations.

ITEM 2
Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds
 
During the three months ended March 31, 2020, we issued the following unregistered securities:
 
Common Stock Sales
 
During the three months ended March 31, 2020, we sold an aggregate of 150,000 shares of our common stock to unrelated investors, for an aggregate of $40,000. The issuances were made in reliance on Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. To make this determination we relied on the representations of the purchaser contained in the securities purchase agreements signed by the purchaser, which indicated the purchaser were knowledgeable about our management and our operations, were sophisticated investors, and understood the purchase was part of a private placement.
 
Common Stock Issued to Consultants
 
During the three months ended March 31, 2020, we issued an aggregate of 1,310,000 shares of our common stock to several unrelated consultants for services rendered. The shares were valued at an average of $0.69 per share. The issuances were made in reliance on Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. To make that determination we relied on the representations of the purchasers contained in the agreements signed by the purchasers and the fact the consultants did work for the company and was familiar with the company, its operations and its management.

Status of New York Property
 
On October 24, 2017, we entered into an amended Purchase and Sale Agreement with Greg DiPaolo’s Pro Am Golf, LLC (“DiPaolo”), under which we agreed to purchase certain improved property located in Westfield, New York from DiPaolo for a total purchase price of Eight Hundred Thousand Dollars ($800,000). Under the terms of the agreement, we paid a Ten Thousand Dollar ($10,000) deposit on October 26, 2017, with the remaining purchase price to be paid on or before the date closing date, which was originally scheduled for February 1, 2018. On February 19, 2018, we entered into a Second Addendum to the Purchase and Sale Agreement extending the closing date to May 1, 2018 in exchange for payment of $8,750. On May 1, 2018, we entered into a Fourth Addendum and a Fifth Addendum to agreement amending the “Closing Date” under the Agreement to August 1, 2018, in exchange for our payment of $50,000 as a non-refundable deposit to be applied against the purchase price when the property sale is completed and $10,000 for maintenance, tree removal and other grounds keeping in order to prepare the golf course for the 2018 season. The property is approximately 43 acres and has unlimited water extraction rights from the State of New York. We had planned to use this property as our inroads to the New York hemp and infused beverage markets in the future. Since the property was in foreclosure it was put up for auction, which occurred on July 1, 2019. At the auction, we were the winning bidder with a bid of $597,000. Our prior deposit payment of $120,000 was credited towards the purchase price, and the remaining $477,000, was finally due on November 30, 2019, after several extensions (which cost us total of $40,000 to obtain). We were not able to meet that deadline, but in January 2020 we worked out an additional extension with the bank. Under the terms of the new agreement, we still owe approximately $392,000 to acquire the property. We have agreed to pay that amount in installment payments of $10,000 per month for six months beginning February 2020, with a balloon payment of approximately $332,000 due on or before August 3, 2020. These payments are in addition to the approximately $420,000 in payments we have already made. We made the initial $10,000 payment for February 2020 at the end of January 2020. To date we have made the $10,000 payments for February 2020, March 2020, April 2020, and May 2020. We need to raise funds in order to make the remaining scheduled payments.
