WEED, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the Company, WEED, we, or our) is offering (the “Offering”) up to a maximum of 40,000,000 units (“Units”), with each Unit consisting of one (1) share of our common stock, par value $0.001 (“Common Stock”) and one (1) warrant to purchase (1) share of our common stock, at a purchase price of $1.00 per Unit. The exercise price on the warrant will be 150% of the price of the Unit sold to the investor and cannot be exercised by the holder until at least twelve months after issuance.
 
Our Common Stock currently trades on the OTCQB-tier of OTC Markets under the symbol “BUDZ” and the closing price of our Common Stock on November 30, 2020 was $0.27. Our Common Stock currently trades on a sporadic and limited basis. The Units and warrants offered hereunder will not be quoted on any OTC market.
 
No Escrow
 
The proceeds of this offering will not be placed into an escrow account. We will offer the Units on a best effort’s basis. As there is no minimum offering, upon the approval of any subscription to this Offering Circular, we will immediately deposit said proceeds into our bank account and may dispose of the proceeds in accordance with the Use of Proceeds.
 
Subscriptions are irrevocable and the purchase price is non-refundable as expressly stated in this Offering Circular. We, by determination of our Board of Directors, in its sole discretion, may issue the Securities under this Offering for cash, promissory notes, services, and/or other consideration without notice to subscribers. All proceeds received by us from subscribers for this Offering will be available for use by us upon acceptance of subscriptions for the Securities by us. 
 
Sale of these shares will commence within two calendar days of the qualification date (the “Qualification Date”) and it will be a continuous Offering pursuant to Rule 251(d)(3)(i)(F).
 
We are selling the Units on a “best efforts” basis through a Tier 2 offering pursuant to Regulation A (Regulation A+) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and we intend to sell the Shares either directly to investors or through registered broker-dealers who are paid commissions. This Offering will terminate on the earlier of (i) November 30, 2021, (ii) the date on which the Maximum Amount is sold, or (iii) when the Board of Directors of the Company elects to terminate the Offering (in each such case, the Termination Date). There is no escrow established for this Offering. We will hold closings upon the receipt of investors’ subscriptions and acceptance of such subscriptions by the Company. If, on the initial closing date, we have sold less than the Maximum Amount, then we may hold one or more additional closings for additional sales, until the earlier of: (i) the sale of the Maximum Amount or (ii) the Termination Date. There is no aggregate minimum requirement for the Offering to become effective, therefore, we reserve the right, subject to applicable securities laws, to begin applying “dollar one” of the proceeds from the Offering towards our business strategy, including without limitation, research and development expenses, offering expenses, acquisitions and joint ventures, working capital and general corporate purposes and other uses as more specifically set forth in the “Use of Proceeds” section of this Offering Circular. The minimum investment amount from an investor is $1,000; however, we expressly reserve the right to waive this minimum in the sole discretion of our management. See “Securities Being Offered” beginning on page 26 for a discussion of certain items required by Item 14 of Part II of Form 1-A.
 
Investing in the Units involves a high degree of risk. These are speculative securities. You should purchase these securities only if you can afford a complete loss of your investment. See Risk Factors” starting on page 7 for a discussion of certain risks that you should consider in connection with an investment in the Shares.
 
THE SEC DOES NOT PASS UPON THE MERITS OF OR GIVE ITS APPROVAL TO ANY SECURITIES OFFERED OR THE TERMS OF THE OFFERING, NOR DOES IT PASS UPON THE ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS OF ANY OFFERING CIRCULAR OR OTHER SOLICITATION MATERIALS. THESE SECURITIES ARE OFFERED PURSUANT TO AN EXEMPTION FROM REGISTRATION WITH THE COMMISSION; HOWEVER, THE COMMISSION HAS NOT MADE AN INDEPENDENT DETERMINATION THAT THE SECURITIES OFFERED ARE EXEMPT FROM REGISTRATION.

OFFERING CIRCULAR SUMMARY
 
You should read the following summary together with the more detailed information and the financial statements appearing elsewhere in this Offering Circular. This Offering Circular contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of certain factors, including those set forth under “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in this Offering Circular. Unless the context indicates or suggests otherwise, references to “we,” “our,” “us,” the “Company,” or the “Registrant” refer to WEED, Inc., a Nevada corporation.
 
WEED, INC.
 
We are a USA-based fully reporting public company currently specializing in the medicinal cannabis, adult-use cannabis & hemp space. We are a multi-national, multi-faceted, vertically-integrated organization. We are structured as a holding company doing business through our divisions, wholly-owned subsidiaries, and strategically placed collaborative partners to achieve and promote a global brand. We are dedicated to global goals and outreach across the full spectrum of the cannabis and hemp industry to find treatments, therapies and medical cures utilizing the Cannabaceae plant family. We do not grow, harvest, produce, or sell any substance in violation of US Federal law under The Federal Controlled Substances Act, and we meet all standards of international law for WEED, Inc. and its subsidiaries in foreign locations.
 
Currently, we are either working or planning for several different business opportunities in the cannabis and hemp space. Our first business opportunity is through our wholly-owned subsidiary, Sangre AT, LLC (“Sangre”), where we are focused on the development and application of cannabis-derived compounds for the treatment of human disease. To that end Sangre, is working on 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. Second, we are under contract to purchase a golf course property located in Westfield, New York. We own the “unlimited water extraction rights” from Lake Erie to the property already, but need to raise at least $500,000 to acquire the property. If we are successful in acquiring the property we plan to utilize the property to gain access to the HEMP and infused beverage industry to establish a foothold for the New York marketplace. Third, we have established WEED Australia Ltd. and The Cannabis Institute of Australia (C.I.A.) in Australia for the purpose of conducting cannabis and hemp research and potentially developing products in Australia. C.I.A. is a non-profit entity formed for the purpose of conducting cannabis and hemp research and potentially developing products in Australia for domestic research and development of products, services and educational purposes to all 7 States and territories including Tasmania. Fourth, we have an arrangement with Professor Elka Touitou to assist us with cannabis research and studies in Israel. Professor Touitou was the Head of the Innovative Dermal, Transdermal and Transmucosal Delivery Lab at the Institute of Drug Research, The School of Pharmacy, HUJ, now retired but still has HUJ clinical trial & independent studies/lab privileges. Professor Touitou is an internationally renowned authority in the field of drug delivery and design of new technologies for efficient administration of drugs and development of new products. Professor Touitou has been involved in cannabinoid research since 1988 at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, (HUJ) Jerusalem, Israel.
 
Through these business divisions and subsidiaries, we plan to advance our research and development of cannabis-related compounds for the treatment of human and animal disease, as well as potentially commercialize other cannabis-related products, both pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical. The business segments are detailed herein.
 
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 in accordance with U.S. and state laws and regulations, as well as in foreign locations where it is legal, such as Israel (including at The Ministry of Health in Israel) and Australia (at the Therapeutic Drug Administration (TGA) & Office of Drug Control (ODC). Although we have had discussions with these organizations we have not contracted with any of these organizations to conduct our study and will not be able to do so until we raise sufficient funding. Israel allows medical research on cannabis, and actually funds certain research clinics and studies. The Federal Government of Australia has recently amended the Narcotic Drugs Act of 1967 to allow cultivation of cannabis for medicinal or scientific 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, heavy metals 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, clones, and tissue cultures 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 to move forward either independently or with strategic partners to develop medicinal products for the treatment of a multitude of human and animal diseases.
 
Currently, we do not have the money or funding to achieve the above goals and we will not be able to achieve our goals unless we are successful in obtaining additional funding, likely through sales of our securities, all which may serve to dilute the ownership position of our current and future shareholders.

Corporate Information
 
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 BLM mining claims and Arizona State Land Department exploration leases.
 
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 effected in order to make our corporate name and ticker symbol better align with our short-term and long-term business focus, which in the short-term is to conduct Sangre’s Cannabis Genomic Study over the next 5 years, process those results, and in the long-term to be an international cannabis and hemp 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 worldwide 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 plans may also include acquisitions of synergistic businesses, such as distilleries to make infused beverages and/or super oxygenated water with CBD and THC. 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 essentially dormant other than building relationships and speaking at The Pharmaceutical Guild of Australia conference event in Sydney Australia, September 2019, since its inception.
 
Our corporate offices are located at 4920 N. Post Trail, Tucson, AZ 85750, telephone number (520) 818-8582.

RISK FACTORS
 
Investing in the Units involves a high degree of risk. In evaluating WEED, Inc. and investing in the Units, careful consideration should be given to the following risk factors, in addition to the other information included in this Offering Circular. Each of these risk factors could materially adversely affect WEED, Inc.’s business, operating results or financial condition, as well as adversely affect the value of an investment in our Units. The following is a summary of the most significant factors that make this Offering speculative or substantially risky. We are still subject to all the same risks that all companies in our industry, and all companies in the economy, are exposed to. These include risks relating to economic downturns, political and economic events and technological developments. You should consider general risks as well as specific risks when deciding whether to invest.
 
We have a limited operating history and historical financial information upon which you may evaluate our performance.
 
You should consider, among other factors, our prospects for success in light of the risks and uncertainties encountered by companies that, like us, are in their early stages of development. We may not successfully address these risks and uncertainties or successfully complete our studies and/or implement our existing and new products. If we fail to do so, it could materially harm our business and impair the value of our common stock. Even if we accomplish these objectives, we may not generate the positive cash flows or profits we anticipate in the future. We were incorporated in the State of Arizona on August 20, 1999. 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 and we shifted our business focus to a company concentrating on the development and application of cannabis-derived compounds for the treatment of human disease. Although our subsidiary, Sangre, has begun its planned five-year Cannabis Genomic Study to complete a global genomic classification of the Cannabis plant genus the completion of the study is likely years away. Unanticipated problems, expenses and delays are frequently encountered in establishing a new business, conducting research, and developing new products. These include, but are not limited to, inadequate funding, unforeseen research issues, lack of consumer acceptance, competition, product development, and inadequate sales and marketing. The failure by us to meet any of these conditions would have a materially adverse effect upon us and may force us to reduce or curtail operations. No assurance can be given that we can or will ever operate profitably.
 
We may not be able to meet our future capital needs.
 
To date, we have not generated any revenue and we have limited cash liquidity and capital resources. Our future capital requirements will depend on many factors, including the progress and results of our Cannabis Genomic Study, our ability to develop products, cash flow from operations, and competing market developments. We anticipate the Cannabis Genomic Study will cost approximately $15,000,000 to complete. We will need additional capital in the near future. Any equity financings will result in dilution to our then-existing stockholders. Although we currently do not have any debt financing, any sources of debt financing in the future may result in a high interest expense. Any financing, if available, may be on unfavorable terms. If adequate funds are not obtained, we will be required to reduce or curtail operations.
 
If we cannot obtain additional funding, our research and development efforts may be reduced or discontinued and we may not be able to continue operations.
 
We have historically experienced negative cash flows from operations since our inception and we expect the negative cash flows from operations to continue for the foreseeable future. Unless and until we are able to generate revenues, we expect such losses to continue for the foreseeable future. As discussed in our financial statements, there exists substantial doubt regarding our ability to continue as a going concern.
 
Research and development efforts are highly dependent on the amount of cash and cash equivalents on hand combined with our ability to raise additional capital to support our future operations through one or more methods, including but not limited to, issuing additional equity or debt.
 
In addition, we may also raise additional capital through additional equity offerings and licensing our research and/or future products in development. While we will continue to explore these potential opportunities, there can be no assurances that we will be successful in raising sufficient capital on terms acceptable to us, or at all, or that we will be successful in licensing our future products. Based on our current projections, we believe we have insufficient cash on hand to meet our obligations as they become due based on current assumptions. The uncertainties surrounding our future cash inflows have raised substantial doubt regarding our ability to continue as a going concern.
 
One of our current projects is our 5-year cannabis genomic study being conducted by Sangre. In the event that we are unable to complete that study for any reason, such as inability to complete our human clinical trials, or if those trials are not successful, then it could significantly impact our business.
 
Although we have plans to be a company with a multitude of business segments, one of our first foray into medical cannabis research is the 5-year cannabis genomic study being conducted by Sangre. In the event that we are unable to complete the 5-year study for any reason, such as the inability to complete our planned human clinical trials in phases 2 and 3 of the study, or if those trials are not successful, then it could significantly impact our business.

Our research plan, which is focused on the development and application of cannabis-derived compounds for the treatment of human disease, and includes our 5-year cannabis genomic study being conducted by Sangre, is dependent upon our ability to complete the necessary research and clinical human trials.
 
Our research plan, which is focused on the development and application of cannabis-derived compounds for the treatment of human disease, and includes our 5-year cannabis genomic study being conducted by Sangre, is dependent upon our ability to complete the necessary research and clinical human trials. In the event that we are unable to complete those research and/or human clinical trials, or if those trials are not successful, then it could significantly, negatively impact all phases of our research plan and significantly impact our business.
  
Current economic conditions and capital markets are in a period of disruption and instability which could adversely affect our ability to access the capital markets, and thus adversely affect our business and liquidity.  
 
The current economic conditions largely caused by the coronavirus pandemic have had, and likely will continue to have for the foreseeable future, a negative impact on our ability to access the capital markets, and thus have a negative impact on our business and liquidity. The recent, substantial losses in worldwide equity markets could lead to an extended worldwide recession. We may face significant challenges if conditions in the capital markets do not improve. Our ability to access the capital markets has been and continues to be severely restricted at a time when we need to access such markets, which could have a negative impact on our business plans. Even if we are able to raise capital, it may not be at a price or on terms that are favorable to us. We cannot predict the occurrence of future disruptions or how long the current conditions may continue.
 
The coronavirus pandemic is causing disruptions in the workplace, which will have negative repercussions on our business if they continue for an extended period time.   
 
We are closely monitoring the coronavirus pandemic and the directives from federal and local authorities regarding not only our workforce, but how it impacts companies we work with for our various projects. As more states and localities continue with social distancing and “work from home” regulations more and more companies will be forced to either shut down, slow down or alter their work routines. This could have a negative impact our business going forward if these conditions persist for an extended period of time.
  
Our proposed business is dependent on laws pertaining to the cannabis industry.
 
Continued development of the cannabis industry is dependent upon continued legislative authorization 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 business.
 
As of the end of February 2019, 33 states and the District of Columbia allow its citizens to use medical marijuana. Voters in the states of Colorado, Washington, Alaska, Oregon and the District of Columbia have approved ballot measures to legalize cannabis for adult use. Currently as of the date of this Offering, there are 11 states that have legalized adult recreational use. The state laws are in conflict with the Federal Controlled Substances Act, which makes cannabis use and possession illegal on a national level. The prior administration (President Obama) 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 cannabis. However, the Trump administration has indicated the potential for stricter enforcement of the cannabis industry at the federal level, but to date there has been very little in terms of action. There is no guarantee that the Trump administration or future administrations will maintain the low-priority enforcement of federal laws in the cannabis industry that was adopted by the Obama administration. The Trump administration or any new administration that follows could change this policy and decide to enforce the federal laws strongly. Any such change in the federal government’s enforcement of current federal laws could cause significant financial damage to our business and our shareholders.
 
Further, and while we do not intend to harvest, distribute or sell cannabis, if we conduct research with the cannabis plant or lease buildings to growers of cannabis, etc., we could be deemed to be participating in cannabis cultivation, which remains illegal under federal law, and exposes us to potential criminal liability, with the additional risk that our properties could be subject to civil forfeiture proceedings.
 
The cannabis industry faces strong opposition.
 
It is believed by many that large well-funded businesses may have a strong economic opposition to the cannabis industry. We believe that the pharmaceutical industry clearly does not want to cede control of any product that could generate significant revenue. For example, medical cannabis will likely adversely impact the existing market for the current “marijuana pill” sold by mainstream pharmaceutical companies. Further, the medical cannabis industry could face a material threat from the pharmaceutical industry, should cannabis displace other drugs or encroach upon the pharmaceutical industry’s products. The pharmaceutical industry is well funded with a strong and experienced lobby that eclipses the funding of the medical cannabis movement. Any inroads the pharmaceutical industry could make in halting or impeding the cannabis industry could have a detrimental impact on our proposed business.

Cannabis remains illegal under Federal law.
 
Cannabis is a schedule-I controlled substance and is illegal under federal law. Even in those states in which the use of cannabis has been legalized, its production and use remains a violation of federal law. Since federal law criminalizing the use of cannabis preempts state laws that legalize its use, strict enforcement of federal law regarding cannabis would likely result in our inability to proceed with our business plan.
 
Laws and regulations affecting the medical cannabis industry are constantly changing, which could detrimentally affect our proposed operations.
 
Local, state and federal medical cannabis 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.
 
If we are unable to recruit and retain qualified personnel, our business could be harmed.
 
Our growth and success highly depend on qualified personnel. Competition in the industry could cause us difficulty in recruiting or retaining a sufficient number of qualified technical personnel, which could harm our ability to develop new products. Also, the fact cannabis remains illegal at the federal level may dissuade qualified personnel from working in the cannabis industry, thus limiting the pool of qualified individuals to run our business. If we are unable to attract and retain necessary key talents, it would harm our ability to develop competitive product and retain good customers and could adversely affect our business and operating results.
 
We may be unable to adequately protect our proprietary rights.
 
Our ability to compete partly depends on the superiority, uniqueness and value of our intellectual property. To protect our proprietary rights, we will rely on a combination of patent, copyright and trade secret laws, confidentiality agreements with our employees and third parties, and protective contractual provisions. Despite these efforts, any of the following occurrences may reduce the value of our intellectual property:
 
● Our applications for patents relating to our business may not be granted and, if granted, may be challenged or invalidated;
● Issued patents may not provide us with any competitive advantages;
● Our efforts to protect our intellectual property rights may not be effective in preventing misappropriation of our technology;
● Our efforts may not prevent the development and design by others of products or technologies similar to or competitive with, or superior to those we develop;
● Another party may obtain a blocking patent and we would need to either obtain a license or design around the patent in order to continue to offer the contested feature or service in our products; or
● The fact cannabis is illegal at the federal level may impact our ability to secure patents from the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and other intellectual property protections may not be available to us.
  
We may become involved in lawsuits to protect or enforce our patents that would be expensive and time consuming.
 
In order to protect or enforce our patent rights, we may initiate patent or trademark litigation against third parties. In addition, we may become subject to interference or opposition proceedings conducted in patent and trademark offices to determine the priority and patentability of inventions. The defense of intellectual property rights, including patent rights through lawsuits, interference or opposition proceedings, and other legal and administrative proceedings, would be costly and divert our technical and management personnel from their normal responsibilities. An adverse determination of any litigation or defense proceedings could put our pending patent applications at risk of not being issued.
 
Furthermore, because of the substantial amount of discovery required in connection with intellectual property litigation, there is a risk that some of our confidential information could be compromised by disclosure during this type of litigation. For example, during the course of this kind of litigation, confidential information may be inadvertently disclosed in the form of documents or testimony in connection with discovery requests, depositions or trial testimony. This disclosure could have a material adverse effect on our business and our financial results.

We may be involved in litigation at some in the future.
  
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. Litigation is also expensive and could cause us to spend substantial sums on legal fees even if we are eventually successful in the litigation.
 
We have several opportunities that we may not be able to take advantage of or close without substantial funding.
 
As detailed elsewhere in this Offering Circular we have several business opportunities that we either cannot continue or cannot begin without raising substantial funds either in this Offering or through other sources. Notably, we have an opportunity to close on a golf course property in New York, with unlimited water extraction rights from Lake Erie, but currently need approximately $500,000 to pay the remainder of the purchase price and close on the acquisition. We are not sure if we will be able to secure the necessary funds to acquire the property within the current timeframe. If we are unable to acquire the property we could miss a significant opportunity and it could affect our future business plans.
 
Our common stock has been thinly traded and we cannot predict the extent to which a trading market will develop.
  
Our common stock is traded on the OTC Markets’ “Pink Current Information” tier. Our common stock is thinly traded compared to larger more widely known companies. Thinly traded common stock can be more volatile than common stock trading in an active public market. We cannot predict the extent to which an active public market for our common stock will develop or be sustained after this Offering.
 
Because we are subject to the “penny stock” rules, the level of trading activity in our stock may be reduced.
 
Our common stock is traded on the OTC Markets’ “OTCQB” tier. Broker-dealer practices in connection with transactions in “penny stocks” are regulated by certain penny stock rules adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Penny stocks, like shares of our common stock, generally are equity securities with a price of less than $5.00, other than securities registered on certain national securities exchanges or quoted on NASDAQ. The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from the rules, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document that provides information about penny stocks and the nature and level of risks in the penny stock market. The broker-dealer also must provide the customer with current bid and offer quotations for the penny stock, the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction, and, if the broker-dealer is the sole market maker, the broker-dealer must disclose this fact and the broker-dealer's presumed control over the market, and monthly account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer's account. In addition, broker-dealers who sell these securities to persons other than established customers and “accredited investors” must make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser's written agreement to the transaction. Consequently, these requirements may have the effect of reducing the level of trading activity, if any, in the secondary market for a security subject to the penny stock rules, and investors in our common stock may find it difficult to sell their shares.
 
The lack of available and cost-effective directors and officer’s insurance coverage in our industry may cause us to be unable to attract and retain qualified executives, and this may result in our inability to further develop our business.
 
Our business depends on attracting independent directors, executives and senior management to advance our business plans. We currently do not have directors and officer’s insurance to protect our directors, officers and the company against to possible third-party claims. This is due to the significant lack availability of such policies in the cannabis industry at reasonably competitive prices. As a result, the Company and our executive directors and officers are susceptible to liability claims arising by third parties, and as a result, we may be unable to attract and retain qualified independent directors and executive management causing the development of our business plans to be impeded as a result.
 
If product liability lawsuits are successfully brought against us, we will incur substantial liabilities.
 
From time to time, we may receive complaints from customers regarding our goods and services. We may become subject to product liability lawsuits from customers alleging injury because of a purported defect in our products or services, claiming substantial damages and demanding payments from us. Liability claims may include allegations of defects in manufacturing, defects in design, a failure to warn of dangers inherent in the product, negligence, strict liability and a breach of warranties. Claims could also be asserted under state consumer protection acts. We may be in the chain of ownership when we supply or distributes products, and therefore is subject to the risk of being held legally responsible for such products. Given the nature of these products (including their relation to cannabis or for other reasons), these claims may not be subject to insurance coverage or covered by insurance policies. Any resulting litigation, regardless of the merits or eventual outcome, could decrease demand for our products, result in product recalls or withdrawals, be costly, divert management attention, result in increased costs of doing business, or otherwise have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations, and financial condition. Any litigation or even negative publicity generated as a result of customer frustration or disagreement with the products or services could damage our reputation and diminish the value of our brand name, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
 
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 liability.
 
Insurance that is otherwise readily available, such as general liability, and directors and officer’s insurance, is more difficult for us to find, and more expensive, because we are service providers 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.

(1)
We are offering the Units at $1.00 per Unit.
 
(2)
These amounts are estimated. The expected use of net proceeds from this Offering represents our intentions based upon our current plans and business conditions, which could change in the future as our plans and business conditions evolve and change. The amounts and timing of our actual expenditures, specifically with respect to working capital, may vary significantly depending on numerous factors. The precise amounts that we will devote to each of the foregoing items, and the timing of expenditures, will vary depending on numerous factors. As a result, our management will retain broad discretion over the allocation of the net proceeds from this offering.
 
(3)
For the Offering Proceeds we did not account for any money received by us for the exercise of the warrants that are a part of the Units since there is no guarantee such warrants would ever be exercised.
 
(4)
We have engaged Dalmore Group, LLC (“Dalmore”) a broker-dealer registered with the SEC and a member of FINRA, to perform the following administrative and technology related functions in connection with this Offering, but not for underwriting or placement agent services. The total fees that we estimate that we will pay Dalmore Group, pursuant to a fully-subscribed offering would be $431,500.
 
(5)
We engaged Great Point Capital LLC (“GPC”), a broker-dealer registered with the SEC and a member of FINRA, pursuant to an Investment Banking Agreement, to assist in identification and qualification of identification of investors who may be interested in funding the Company’s capital needs via the Company’s qualified Reg A+ offering. Their fee includes a 2% commission of all funds raised through their introductions, as well as a one-time payment of 120,000 shares of the Company’s common stock which shares are Restricted Securities under Rule 14. We may pay other broker-dealers and finders as well, but information as to the finder or brokers must be disclosed in an amendment to this offering circular. The maximum amount of fees we would pay to GPC pursuant to a fully-subscribed offering would be $800,000, though it is unlikely that all investors would come through GPC introductions and the amount would likely be less than $800,000.
 
In the event we do not sell all of the Units being offered, we may seek additional financing from other sources in order to support the intended use of proceeds indicated above. If we secure additional equity funding, investors in this offering would be diluted. In all events, there can be no assurance that additional financing would be available to us when wanted or needed and, if available, on terms acceptable to us.

DILUTION
 
We are offering for sale to new investors up to 40,000,000 Units at $1.00 per Unit with one share per Unit.   The following table sets forth on a pro forma basis at September 30, 2020, the differences between existing stockholders and new investors with respect to the number of shares of common stock purchased from us, the total consideration paid to us, and the price paid per Unit, which is $1.00 per Unit.

(1) Does not include any shares from the exercise of warrants from the Units.
(2) Includes the value of shares issued for services.
 
If you purchase Units in this offering, your ownership interest in our Common Stock will be diluted immediately. The difference between the public offering price per share of common stock and the net tangible book value per share of common stock after this offering constitutes the dilution to investors in this offering. Net tangible book value per share is determined by dividing the net tangible book value (total assets less intangible assets and total liabilities) by the number of outstanding shares of common stock.  The dilution calculations we have set forth in this section reflects an offering price of $1.00 per share.
 
As of September 30, 2020, we had a net tangible book value of ($959,221) or ($0.008) per share of issued and outstanding common stock.  After giving effect to the sale of the Units proposed to be offered in the maximum offering of 40,000,000 Units (40,000,000 shares), the net tangible book value at that date would have been $40,959,221 or approximately $0.27 per share.  This represents an immediate increase in net tangible book value of approximately $0.26 per share to existing shareholders and an immediate dilution of approximately $0.74 per share to new investors.
 
The following table illustrates such per share dilution:

Pricing of the Offering
 
Prior to the Offering, our common stock trades on OTC Markets. However, the public offering price herein ($1 per share) was determined by our management. The principal factors considered in determining the public offering price include:
 
-the information set forth in this Offering Circular and otherwise available;
-our history and prospects and the history of and prospects for the industry in which we compete;
-our past and present financial performance;
-our prospects for future earnings and the present state of our development;
-the general condition of the securities markets at the time of this Offering;
-the recent market prices of, and demand for, publicly traded common stock of generally comparable companies; and
-other factors deemed relevant by us.
 
Offering Period and Expiration Date
 
This Offering will start on or after the Qualification Date and will terminate at our discretion or, on the Termination Date.
 
Dalmore Group
 
We have engaged Dalmore Group, LLC (“Dalmore”) a broker-dealer registered with the SEC and a member of FINRA, to perform the following administrative and technology related functions in connection with this Offering, but not for underwriting or placement agent services:
 
 
Review investor information, including KYC (“Know Your Customer”) data,
AML (“Anti Money Laundering”) and other compliance background checks, and provide a
 recommendation to us whether or not to accept investor as a customer.
 
Review each investors subscription agreement to confirm such investors participation in the
Offering, and provide a determination to us whether or not to accept the use of the
 subscription agreement for the investor’s participation.
 
Contact and/or notify us, if needed, to gather additional information or clarification
on an investor.
 
Not provide any investment advice nor any investment recommendations to any investor.
 
Keep investor details and data confidential and not disclose to any third-party except as required
by regulators or pursuant to the terms of the agreement (e.g. as needed for AML and background checks).
 
Coordinate with third party providers to ensure adequate review and compliance.
 
As compensation for the services listed above, the company has agreed to pay Dalmore $31,500 in one-time set up fees, consisting of the following:
 
 
$5,000 advance payment for out of pocket expenses.
 
$20,000 consulting fee due and payable immediately after FINRA issues a no objection letter.
 
$6,500 for fees to be paid to FINRA.
 
In addition, we will pay Dalmore Group a commission equal to 1% of the amount raised in the Offering to support the Offering. Assuming that the Offering is open for 12 months, we estimate that fees due to pay Dalmore, pursuant to the 1% commission would be $400,500 for a fully-subscribed Offering. Finally, the total fees that we estimate that we will pay Dalmore Group, pursuant to a fully-subscribed offering would be $431,500. These assumptions were used in estimating the fees due in the “Use of Proceeds.”

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 Registration Statement 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 by Q3 of 2019, at an estimated cost of $300,000. 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.

 
17
 
 
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 comprehensive net loss decreased by $1,784,719, from ($29,315,007) to ($27,530,288), from the year ended 2018 compared to 2019. Our operating loss decreased by $988,551, from ($28,405,618) to ($27,417,067) for the same period. The decrease in operating loss is primarily a result of our decrease in our professional fees partially offset by a decrease in our general and administrative expenses. The increase in our net loss is also a result of our operating loss, partially offset by decreases in impairment expense and loss on extinguishment of debt. These changes are detailed below.
 
Revenue
 
We have not had any revenues since our inception. Prior to October 1, 2014, we were an exploration stage mineral exploration company that owned a number of unpatented mining claims and Arizona State Land Department claims. In late 2014, we changed our short-term and long-term business focus to 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 $388,265, from $1,358,178 for the year ended December 31, 2018 to $969,913 for the year ended December 31, 2019, primarily due to decreases in our lab supplies and construction labor for the research facilities.
 
Professional Fees
 
Our professional fees decreased during the year ended December 31, 2019 compared to the year ended December 31, 2018. Our professional fees were $26,287,730 for the year ended December 31, 2019 and $26,866,800 for the year ended December 31, 2018. These fees are largely related to fees paid for legal and accounting services, along with compensation to independent contractors, and increased primarily as a result of increased stock-based compensation awards and the value attributed to those shares of stock. We expect the amount of professional fees we pay in cash to grow steadily as our business expands. However, the amount attributed to the stock-based compensation could decrease in periods when our stock price is lower, 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 year ended December 31, 2019, we had depreciation and amortization of $159,424, compared to $180,640 in the year ended December 31, 2018. The depreciation and amortization expense in 2019 was related to the sale of the two Audi vehicles as a repayment to Nicole Breen. The depreciation and amortization expense in 2018 was related to the purchases of a house and condominium in La Veta, Colorado and two trademarks acquired from Copalix (PTY) LTD.
 
Interest Income
 
Interest income decreased from $9,338 to $0 for the year ended December 31, 2019 compared to the same period in 2018. Our interest income in 2018 primarily as a result of a credit received at closing for the purchase of the property located in La Veta, Colorado.
 
 
19
 
 
Interest Expense
 
Interest expense decreased slightly from ($12,179) to ($11,672) for the year ended December 31, 2019 compared to the same period in 2018. Our interest expense primarily relates to interest on a convertible note and short-term loans.
 
Other Income
 
In 2019, we had other income of $1,016, compared to $155,701 in 2018. The other income in 2019 related to a refund from a merchant. The other income in 2018 related to settlement payment of $155,000 we received from an insurance company related to a fire near one of our properties in La Veta, Colorado, and loan discount of $121,475 on the settlement between Sangre AT, LLC and Craig W. Clark.
 
Impairment Expense
 
In 2019, we had impairment expense of $0, compared to $321,614 in 2018. The impairment expense in 2018 related to the appraised value of the property located at 1390 Mountain Valley Road purchased for $1,200,000 on February 16, 2018.
 
Loss on Deposit
 
In 2019, we had loss on deposit of $100,000, compared to $110,000 in 2018. The loss on deposit for 2019 period was related to the termination of the exclusive license and assignment agreement between us and Yissum Research Development Company. The loss on deposit for 2018 period was related to the non-refundable deposit amount of $110,000 for the Lake Erie Project in Westfield, New York.
 
Loss on Extinguishment of Debt
 
During the year ended December 31, 2019, we had a loss on extinguishment of debt of $0, compared to $1,064,720 in the year ended December 31, 2018. The loss on extinguishment of debt in 2018 was related to the $475,000 principle amount promissory note issued by us to the seller of property that was paid in full. The loss on extinguishment of debt was recorded based on the fair value of the consideration paid and the carrying value of the note payable on the settlement date of January 17, 2018.
 
Other Expense
 
During 2019, we had other expense of $1,956, compared to $9,004 in 2018. In 2019, the other expense primarily related to credit card finance charges, and in the 2018 the other expense primarily related to credit card finance charges.
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
Introduction
 
During the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, because of our operating losses, we did not generate positive operating cash flows. Our cash on hand as of December 31, 2019 was $2,509 and our monthly cash flow burn rate was approximately $40,000. 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 operations for many years to come.

Our current assets decreased by $365,629 as of December 31, 2019 as compared to December 31, 2018, primarily due to decreases in cash, deposits, and prepaid expenses. The decrease in our total assets between the two periods was primarily attributed to a decrease in our vehicles and higher accumulated depreciation of our assets.
 
Our current liabilities and total liabilities increased by $493,608, as of December 31, 2019 as compared to December 31, 2018. This increase in liabilities as of December 31, 2019 was primarily related to increases in our accrued officer compensation, accrued expenses, accrued interest, notes payable and notes payable, related parties compared to December 31, 2018.
 
In order to repay our obligations in full or in part when due, we will be required to raise significant capital from other sources. There is no assurance, however, that we will be successful in these efforts.
 
Cash Requirements
 
We had cash available as of December 31, 2019 of $2,509 and $70,608 on December 31, 2018. Based on our revenues, cash on hand and current monthly burn rate of approximately $40,000, 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 $1,110,597 for the year ended December 31, 2019, as compared to $3,181,303 for the year ended December 31, 2018. In 2019, the net cash used in operating activities consisted primarily of our net loss of ($27,529,679), offset by estimated fair value of stock-based compensation of $22,770,662, estimated fair of shares issued for services of $2,578,250, depreciation and amortization of $159,423, and impairment of construction in progress of $499,695 adjusted by an increases in accounts receivable of $801, accrued expenses of $141,800, and a decreases in prepaid expenses and other assets of $298,331 and accounts payable of $28,278. In 2018, the net cash used in operating activities consisted primarily of our net loss of ($29,315,007) and gain of settlement of debt of ($121,475), offset by estimated fair value of stock-based compensation of $21,201,397, estimated fair of shares issued for services of $4,041,575, impairment of property of $321,614, loss on debt extinguishment of $1,064,720, loss of deposit of $110,000, and depreciation and amortization of $180,640, adjusted by an increases in prepaid expenses and other assets of $498,311, accounts receivable of $21, accounts payable of $11,849, and a decrease in accrued expenses of $178,335.

Our comprehensive loss decreased by $6,113,505, from ($6,290,151) to ($147,646), from the three months ended September 30, 2019 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020. Our operating loss decreased by $5,971,649, from ($6,186,901) to ($215,252) for the same period. The decrease in net loss compared to the same period of the prior year is primarily a result of decreases in professional fees and general and administrative expenses and a gain on sale of fixed asset, offset slightly by an increase in our interest expense. These changes are detailed below.
 
Revenue
 
We have not had any revenues since our inception. We are a 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 $4,699, from $80,249 for the three months ended September 30, 2019 to $75,550 for the three months ended September 30, 2020, primarily due to decreases in travel, facilities maintenance, and charitable contribution expenses.
 
Professional Fees
 
Our professional fees decreased by $5,955,969 during the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2019. Our professional fees were $109,927 for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and $6,065,896 for the three months ended September 30, 2019. These fees are largely related to fees paid for legal and accounting services, along with compensation to independent contractors, and decreased significantly 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 September 30, 2020 we had depreciation and amortization expense of $29,775, compared to $40,756 in the three months ended September 30, 2019. Our depreciation and amortization expense primarily relates to our property and trademark acquisitions.
 
Interest Expense
 
Interest expense increased from $3,225 to $8,329 for the three months ended September 30, 2019 compared to the same period in 2020. Our interest expense primarily relates to notes payable from attorney and related parties.
 
Loss on Deposit
 
We had a loss on deposit of $0 during the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $100,000 during the three months ended September 30, 2019. Our loss on deposit during the three months ended September 30, 2019 related the termination of the exclusive license and assignment agreement between us and Yissum Research Development Company. The second installment of the license fee of $400,000, due on May 1, 2019, was not paid, and the first installment of $100,000 was recorded as a loss on deposit due to the termination.
 
Gain on Sale of Fixed Asset
 
During the three months ended September 30, 2020, we had a gain on sale of fixed asset of $46,948, compared to $0 for the three months ended September 30, 2019. The gain on sale of fixed asset during the three months ended September 30, 2020 related to the sale of a condominium we owned in La Veta, Colorado.

Our comprehensive loss decreased by $20,743,688, from ($24,599,807) to ($3,856,119), from the nine months ended September 30, 2019 compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2020. Our operating loss decreased by $20,621,238, from ($24,492,708) to ($3,871,470) 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 and general and administrative expenses, offset slightly by an 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 $166,704, from $390,937 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 to $224,233 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, primarily due to decreases in travel, facilities maintenance, and charitable contribution expenses.

Professional Fees
 
Our professional fees decreased by $20,438,860 during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Our professional fees were $3,540,739 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and $23,979,599 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. These fees are largely related to fees paid for legal and accounting services, along with compensation to independent contractors, and decreased significantly 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 nine months ended September 30, 2020 we had depreciation and amortization expense of $106,498, compared to $122,172 in the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Our depreciation and amortization expense primarily relates to our property and trademark acquisitions.
 
Interest Expense
 
Interest expense increased from $5,614 to $30,959 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 compared to the same period in 2020. Our interest expense primarily relates to notes payable from attorney and related parties.
 
Other Income
 
Other income during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $0, compared to $1,017 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Our other income for the nine months ended September 30, 2019, related to a refund from a merchant.
 
Loss on Deposit
 
We had a loss on deposit of $0 during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $100,000 during the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Our loss on deposit during the nine months ended September 30, 2019 related the termination of the exclusive license and assignment agreement between us and Yissum Research Development Company. The second installment of the license fee of $400,000, due on May 1, 2019, was not paid, and the first installment of $100,000 was recorded as a loss on deposit due to the termination.
 
Gain on Sale of Fixed Asset
 
During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, we had a gain on sale of fixed asset of $46,948, compared to $0 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The gain on sale of fixed asset during the three months ended September 30, 2020 related to the sale of a condominium we owned in La Veta, Colorado.
 
Other Expense
 
Other expense decreased from $1,956 to $0 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 compared to the same period in 2020. Our other expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2019, relates to bank service charges.
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
Introduction
 
During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, because of our operating losses, we did not generate positive operating cash flows. Our cash on hand as of September 30, 2020 was $166,463 and our monthly cash flow burn rate was approximately $45,000. Our cash on hand was primarily proceeds from the sales of our securities and from the sale of the condominium we owned in La Veta, Colorado. 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 September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively, are as follows:

Our total assets increased by $33,175 as of September 30, 2020 as compared to December 31, 2019. The increase in our total assets between the two periods was primarily attributed to increases in our cash and deposits, partially offset by decreases in our land, buildings and property and equipment, net (due to depreciation) at September 30, 2020 compared to December 31, 2019.

Our current liabilities and total liabilities increased by $229,629, as of September 30, 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 $166,463 and $2,509 as of September 30, 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

DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS
 
General
 
We are a USA-based fully reporting public company currently specializing in the medicinal cannabis space. We are a multi-national, multi-faceted, vertically-integrated organization. We are structured as a holding company doing business through our divisions, wholly-owned subsidiaries, and strategically placed collaborative partners to achieve and promote a global brand. We are dedicated to global goals and outreach across the full spectrum of the cannabis industry to find treatments, therapies and medical cures utilizing the Cannabaceae plant family. We do not grow, harvest, produce, or sell any substance in violation of US Federal law under The Federal Controlled Substances Act, and we meet all standards of international law for WEED, Inc. and its subsidiaries in foreign locations.
 
Currently, we are either working or planning for several different business opportunities in the cannabis space. Our first business opportunity is through our wholly-owned subsidiary, Sangre AT, LLC (“Sangre”), where we are focused on the development and application of cannabis-derived compounds for the treatment of human disease. To that end Sangre, is working on 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. Second, we are under contract to purchase a golf course property located in Westfield, New York. We own the unlimited water extraction rights from Lake Erie to the property already, but need to raise at least $500,000 to acquire the property. If we are successful in acquiring the property we plan to utilize the property to access the hemp and infused beverage markets. Third, we have established WEED Australia Ltd. and The Cannabis Institute of Australia (C.I.A.) in Australia for the purpose of conducting cannabis and hemp research and potentially developing products in Australia. C.I.A. is a non-profit entity formed for the purpose of conducting cannabis and hemp research and potentially developing products in Australia for domestic research and development of products, services and educational purposes to all 7 States and territories including Tasmania. . Fourth, we have an arrangement with Professor Elka Touitou to assist us with cannabis research and studies in Israel. Professor Touitou was the Head of the Innovative Dermal, Transdermal and Transmucosal Delivery Lab at the Institute of Drug Research, The School of Pharmacy, HUJ, now retired but still has HUJ clinical trial & independent studies/lab privileges. Professor Touitou is an internationally renowned authority in the field of drug delivery and design of new technologies for efficient administration of drugs and development of new products. Professor Touitou has been involved in Cannabinoid research since 1988 at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, (HUJ) Jerusalem, Israel.
 
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 few 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”. We plan 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.

Corporate History
 
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 BLM mining claims and Arizona State Land Department exploration leases. We still own 15 “unpatented” mining claims covering 3 mining properties located in the historic gold mining territory of Southern Arizona, but are not currently conducting any mining activities and have no plans to in the immediate future.
 
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.
 
 
 
28
 
 
These changes were effected in order to make our corporate name and ticker symbol better align with our short-term and long-term business focus, which in the short-term is to conduct a Cannabis Genomic Study over the next 5 years, process those results, and in the long-term to be 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”. WEED plans to consult, assist, manage & lease to universities, state governments, licensed dispensary owners and worldwide organic grow operators on a contract basis, with a concentration on the legal and medical Cannabis sector. These operations are being conducted through our primary wholly-owned subsidiary, Sangre AT, LLC, a Wyoming limited liability company (“Sangre”), dba Sangre BioSciences. 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 plans may also include acquisitions of synergistic businesses, such as distilleries to make infused beverages and/or super oxygenated water with CBD and THC.
 
As of December 31, 2019, in addition to Sangre, WEED Inc. had four other wholly-owned subsidiaries, namely WEED Australia Ltd., an Australian corporation, The Cannabis Institute of Australia, an Australian non-profit corporation, WEED Israel Cannabis Ltd., an Israeli corporation and WEED Hong Kong Limited, a Chinese corporation. WEED Australia is registered as an unlisted public company in Australia. All subsidiaries were formed to address future anticipated global demand and to take advantage of countries that have more developed laws related to cannabis legal at the Federal level. In March 2019, we formed WEED Hong Kong Limited with offices in Hong Kong for IP and worldwide branding purposes.
 
Our U.S. corporate offices are located at 4920 N. Post Trail, Tucson, AZ 85750, telephone number (520) 818-8582.

Professor Touitou has been involved in Cannabinoid research since 1988 at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, (HUJ) Jerusalem, Israel.
 
Using annotated genomic data and newly generated phenotypic data, WEED 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 to move forward either independently or with strategic partners to develop medicinal products for the treatment and therapies for a multitude of human and animal 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 brands focusing on building and purchasing labs, land and building commercial grade “Cultivation Centers”. WEED plans 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 thru acquisitions and strategic partnerships. 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, WEED, Inc. has 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, and in March 2019, WEED Israel Cannabis Ltd. was involved in the transaction with Yissum discussed herein. In 2018, we formed a non-profit company in Australia called The Cannabis Institute of Australia. To date this company has been dormant.

As of December 31, 2018, the original Sangre’s research team leader is no longer with the Company. However, we believe his departure will have little to no impact on Sangre’s genomic study. Although Mr. Williams was the team leader of the Sangre project, most of the work on the study was conducted under contract by Industrial Metagenomics in connection with a public university in Texas. The leadership of Industrial Metagenomics is intact and will still be conducting the study once we have secured sufficient financing. In addition, we will plan to utilize top researchers from Israel. WEED’s facilities manager is the only individual who is currently located onsite at the Sangre BioSciences compound in La Veta, Colorado. His duties also include caretaker for our 6,000 sq ft corporate Colorado headquarters and our 3 bedroom condo in Cucharas, Colorado to house personnel.
 
  Cannabis Genomic Study
 
After more than 40 years of illicit, underground breeding programs, the genetic integrity of Cannabis has been significantly degraded. Our subsidiary, Sangre AT, LLC (“Sangre”) plans to use a gene-based breeding program to root out inferior cultivars and replace them with fully-validated and patentable cultivars which produce consistent plant products for the medicinal markets. We believe our unique 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
 
 Generation of new cultivars, accelerating and perfecting the art of selective breeding
 
 Provide the ability to assay for specific genes within the crop, which is critical to strain tracking and market quality assurance
 
 Improve disease and drought resistance
 
We believe our gene-based breeding program will facilitate and accelerate:
 
 Improved therapeutic properties
 
 New therapies for migraines/chronic pain, epilepsy, cancer, PTSD, chronic head injury, and others
 
 Enhanced opportunities for new drug discovery through collaborations with national and international medical research/treatment centers, bio-pharma companies including nutraceuticals and botanical companies
 
 Development and protection of intellectual property on a global scale. WEED currently owns several trademarks for WEED, WEED Rules!, Panama Red and Acapulco Gold in in several countries in certain limited International categories as placeholders for future growth.
 
The Research Plan
 
In order to achieve the desired results outlined above, Sangre has developed a research plan entitled the “Cannabis Genomic Study.” The goal of the study is to complete a global genomic classification of the Cannabis plant genus. Once the classification is complete, the research team plans to develop new cannabis strains that show the highest likelihood of being successful in the treatment of a variety of human diseases, test those strains and then work to produce those strains in a medicinal form for the treatment of disease. The research plan will be conducted using the following steps: Extraction, Purification, Sequencing. Annotation, and Cloning (micro-propagation).
 
Extraction: The extraction of genomic DNA from cannabis is a complex process of cell lysis and DNA recovery. Sangre has evaluated, updated, and validated new methods for DNA recovery.
 
Purification: Using next generation purification chemistries, the DNA is cleaned and concentrated for downstream applications.
 
Sequencing: The Cannabis DNA is sequenced using both the Illumina MiSeq and MinIon instruments.

Annotation: The genomic data is assembled and annotated using proprietary bioinformatic systems and the data provided to the Sangre AgroTech genetic breeders and cellular cloners.
 
Cloning: Through this process, new, high-value cannabis strains are developed.
 
The objectives of the research plan are as follows:
 
Technical Objective 1: Using two next generation sequencing platforms and proprietary bioinformatics programs, we will sequence five cultivars of Cannabis, and generate fully annotated genomic data.
 
Technical Objective 2: Using the selected cultivars, backcross and forward hybridization studies will be performed to produce a new generation of stock. The progeny of these crosses will be grown, genetically finger-printed, and introduced to the market under patent protection. Up-selection and cultivation of cultivars for quality assurance.
 
Technical Objective 3: Genotypic and phenotypic measurements of the offspring will be performed using Next Generation Sequence Analysis, Genotyping, and Phenotyping analysis. Product focus groups will evaluate new cultivars. Patent protection will be initiated for new cultivars which meet product development criteria.
 
Technical Objective 4: Utilize gene-driven breeding of up-selected cultivars to initiate the generation of “designer” cultivars for clinical research.
 
Technical Objective 5: Market placement of selected, genetically enhanced cultivars for the medicinal and bio-pharma markets.
 
Where We Are in the Research Plan
 
As noted above, phase one of our planned five year “Cannabis Genomic Study” includes “extraction technologies”. On April 20, 2017, we, in connection with Industrial Metagenomics, initiated the genomic study by extracting DNA from seven cannabis strains in Tucson, Arizona. Sangre followed the initial extraction with a second round of extractions in July 2017. So far, Industrial Megagenomics, under their agreement with Sangre have designed, tested, and developed standard operating procedures for efficient DNA isolation and sequencing of Cannabis genomes. Extensive bioinformatics analysis of repeatable and variable regions has been performed on newly generated DNA, sequencing data of 26 landrace cultivars and publicly available genomes to identify potential biomarkers to type cannabis plants without the need for whole genome sequencing. The developed biomarkers were prepared into a package for patenting, however, we are waiting for funding to perform in-vivo validation. We believe we will be able to finish phase one of the trial within 9-12 months after we have secured sufficient financing.
 
Under the next phase of our genomic study, we plan to continue our genetic studies in both the United States and Israel for phase 2, moving directly to clinical human trials with our wholly owned subsidiary, WEED Israel Cannabis Ltd. under the guidance currently of Professor Elka Touitou, who has patented “Delivery systems” to increase bioavailability with Hundreds of formulas she developed at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem since 1988. In addition, Professor Elka has worked with World Class scientists such as Dr. Raphael Mechoulam and many top echelon scientists in Israel in Cannabis studies and Human Trials outside of the scope of Patents and Formulas with WEED Inc. In February 2019, Glenn Martin, our CEO, and WEED Israel Managing Director, Elliot Kwestel, met with Dr. Mechoulam in his office at HUJ to discuss WEED Israel goals of attaining a high THC cultivar to synthesis for controlled dosing purposes as discussed below. We are ready to begin this phase, but need additional funding in order to proceed with the planned clinical trials, as well as to continue on to future phases of the genomic study.
 
After the planned clinical trials, and assuming they are successful, then in Phase 3, we plan for WEED Israel Cannabis Ltd. to utilize our human clinical trials with continuing genetic studies in Israel, not just at University levels but to include separate studies at Israeli Hospitals and clinics across Israel from Haifa to Tel Aviv, under Contract Research Organizations (CROs) in order to begin final research & developments from strain extractions to advance manufacturing, refinement of raw product, scientifically backed, to incorporate into Protocols and Procedures, QA/QC to meet EU standards, TGA standards in Australia, and that will meet World Class standards required by the FDA in the United States. This strong pipeline and provenance will clarify and streamline licensing standards to issue all vertically integrated licenses needed in each jurisdiction that we enter in each country. We plan to utilize the highest GMP standards for eventual sale to the public, both for Domestic use and International export.
 
Under the continuation of Phase 3 and for Phase 4 – assuming our human clinical trials proved to be successful, we plan for WEED Israel Cannabis Ltd., once cleared and permitted by The Israeli Ministry of Health, to begin to move to manufacturing of product both for commercial pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical uses. These above stated studies will include development of “educational courses” for continuing education to medical professionals to attract; Drs. PHDs, pharmacists, pharmacist assistants and retail managers, pharmacy industry service providers, pharmacy trade press, educators, government officials, students & new graduates, other pharmaceutical & health-related industry professionals.
 
In addition, we plan for proprietary strains of cannabis genetics to be imported & incorporated into our studies upon Ministry of Health authorization or lead authorities globally for additional research and evaluation to complete DNA sequencing, Pathogen studies, Metabolic Studies, and MetaBolomics analysis adding to our databases to increase efficiencies, worldwide. Our goal is to achieve a 38% - 40% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) plant, natural or enhanced genetics, to synthesis THC and THC-A to separate THC (pyschoactive) from THC-A (non-pyschoactive) to control dosing for commercial release of products. We will conduct separate studies and evaluations for Cannabidiol (CBD), a phytocannabinoid. CBD does not have the same psychoactivity as THC. CBD is one of 113 currently identified cannabinoids in the Cannabaceae plant. CBD accounts for up to 40% of plant extracts.
 
 
31
 
 
 This also requires the development of continuing “Education Studies” to educate doctors and health practitioners on proper use as stated above for increased bioavailability to achieve consistent controlled dosing for patients medical requirements and needs. This will require short and long term, continual studies to supply proper medical advice and treatment to provide the highest quality medical and legal use products for both humans and animal conditions and diseases. We will look to supply constant and continual medical information and products for preventative treatments, therapies, with ultimate goal for eventual cures utilizing the Cannabis plant and its potential for a panacea of medical relief worldwide.
 
New York Property – Infused Beverage Industry
 
As detailed elsewhere herein, we currently have an agreement in place that allows us the option to acquire 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 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. We made the six $10,000 monthly payments but were not able to pay the balloon payment by the August 3, 2020 deadline, but on July 31, 2020 we worked out an additional extension with the bank. Under the terms of that agreement, we paid $10,000 in exchange for an additional extension and we owed approximately $332,000 to acquire the property. We agreed to pay that amount in installment payments of $10,000 per month for six months beginning September 2020, with a balloon payment of approximately $272,000 due on or before February 1, 2021. These payments are in addition to the approximately $480,000 in payments we have already made. To date we have made the $10,000 payments for September 2020 and October 2020. We need to raise funds in order to make the remaining scheduled payments. In the event we make the payments we will own the property. In the event we do not make the payments, all monies we have paid are non-refundable and the bank may acquire the property. The property is approximately 43 acres and has unlimited water extraction rights from the State of New York. If we are successful in acquiring the property, we plan to use this property as our inroads to the New York hemp and infused beverage markets in the future. In order to make the payments required to acquire the property we must raise funds.
 
WEED Australia Ltd.
 
WEED Australia Ltd.’s corporate strategy is to become a leader in cannabis and hemp research and development. To support this goal WEED Australia Ltd. has assembled a highly qualified team of well-respected Ph.D.’s, scientists, researchers and business experts with the goal of establishing an export industry. WEED Australia’s personnel has presented at several conferences regarding the use of cannabis for medical purposes as well as for other uses. We need additional funding in order to further WEED Australia’s efforts to conduct research and development activities in Australia.
 
WEED Israel Cannabis Ltd.
 
Through our subsidiary, WEED Israel Cannabis, Ltd., we have an arrangement with Professor Elka Touitou to assist us with cannabis research and studies in Israel. Professor Touitou was the Head of the Innovative Dermal, Transdermal and Transmucosal Delivery Lab at the Institute of Drug Research, The School of Pharmacy, HUJ, now retired but still has HUJ clinical trial & independent studies/lab privileges. Professor Touitou is an internationally renowned authority in the field of drug delivery and design of new technologies for efficient administration of drugs and development of new products. As noted above with our genomic study, there is a strong possibility we do our initial clinic trials in Israel due to a variety of factors, including the fact that Dr.Touitou is located in Israel, and the fact that Israel has certain advancements in the study of cannabis that we believe would be beneficial to our clinic trial work. We need to raise additional funds in order to conduct our planned operations in Israel.
 
Competitive Advantages
 
Sangre’s research and development team works with next generation sequencing (NGS) and emerging third generation instruments and has developed the most advanced proprietary bioinformatics data systems available. Sangre uses a unique two sequencing approach. One system provides DNA reads of up to 300,000 base pair reads and an NGS system which provides highly accurate short reads. This allows the genomic data to be assembled in a scaffold construct; the long reads forming the scaffold and the short reads providing highly accurate verification and quality assurance of the genomic data. This approach, together with the bioinformatics program, facilitates a highly accurate construct of the Cannabis genome which can be annotated and facilitate gene discovery and gene location. Sangre combination of personnel, skill-sets, and data analytics capabilities will allow us to accomplish our goals in months, rather than years.
 
Using annotated genomic data and newly generated phenotypic data, we plan to identify and isolate regions of the genome which are related to growth, synthesis of desired molecules, and environmental compatibility. This complex data set will be utilized in a breeding program to generate and establish new hybrid cultivars which exemplify the traits that are desired by the medical community. This breeding program will produce new seed stocks, clones, cultivars, and intellectual property which will generate value for the business organization. Eventual expansion to Israel will allow us to include human clinical trials thru product development for its domestic and international export markets.
 
Sangre plans to develop a translational breeding program to establish a new collection of Cannabis cultivars for the USA national market. In Israel we plan to establish a unique 2nd new collection of Cannabis Cultivars exclusive to WEED for the EU marketplace. Using genetic screening technology and micro-propagation, cultivars can be up-selected for specific traits and grown to address the needs of consumers in the medicinal and drug discovery markets. The combination of next generation genomics, selective hybridization, and In Vitro cloning provide us with the tools to enhance new cultivars of patentable Cannabis.
 
Marketing
 
We have not developed a marketing plan and do not intend to until we are in the latter stages of the Cannabis Genomic Study and believe we have strains that are marketable for the treatment of disease. At that time we plan to develop a marketing plan for our newly-developed strains of Cannabis. We believe that if we are successful in developing strains of Cannabis that effectively treat human diseases then the market for our products will be a vibrant market. We will continue to look to acquire companies with revenue and companies or individuals with unique proprietary strains for future growth. We believe securing intellectual property, where possible, and branding are keys to long term financial success in the emerging global cannabis and hemp industries.
 
 
32
 
 
Manufacturing
 
We are not currently manufacturing any products and do not intend to do so until we are in the latter stages of the Cannabis Genomic Study and believe we have strains that are marketable for the treatment of disease such that we could begin the manufacturing of such products, either in-house or through relationships with third party companies. We do not currently have any relationships with third party companies for the manufacturing of any products.
 
Competition
 
The cannabis industry, taken as a whole, is an emerging industry with many new entrants, with some of them focused on research, some on medicinal cannabis and others focused on cannabis for legal, adult use, i.e. “recreational” use. We are currently focused solely on the research and medicinal cannabis part of the industry. Additionally, many cannabis companies are international companies due to the restrictions on the cannabis industry in the U.S.
 
At this point in our development, we believe our competitors are those companies that are attempting study and sequence cannabis DNA with the goal of creating medicines from that research. We do not view ourselves in competition with those companies currently growing and/or selling cannabis for medicinal or recreational use since we are primarily a research company at this stage. However, in the future WEED looks provide both pharmaceutical grade medicinal products along with non-pharmaceutical products, such as Acapulco Gold suntan lotion as an example. We are aware of companies that supply synthetic cannabinoids and cannabis extracts to researchers for pre-clinical and clinical investigation. We are also aware of various companies that cultivate cannabis plants with a view to supplying herbal cannabis or non-pharmaceutical cannabis-based formulations to patients. These activities have not been approved by the FDA or the TGA in Australia.
 
We have never endorsed or supported the idea of distributing or legalizing crude herbal cannabis, or preparations derived from crude herbal cannabis for medical use and do not believe our research to hopefully create prescription cannabinoids are the same, and therefore competitive, with crude herbal cannabis. We believe that only a cannabinoid medication, one that is standardized in composition, formulation and dose, administered by means of an appropriate delivery system, and tested in properly controlled pre-clinical and clinical studies, can meet the standards of regulatory authorities around the world, including those of the FDA. We believe that any cannabinoid medication must be subjected to, and satisfy, such rigorous scrutiny through proper accredited education and federal regulations.
 
As cannabis has moved through the legalization process in North America, research groups in Canada and the Unites States, along with Israel, Australia, have initiated work on understanding the Cannabis genome.
 
The methods of competition for companies in the cannabis research market segment revolve around a variety of factors, including, but not limited to, experience of the company’s research team, the facilities used by the company to conduct research, the instrumentation used to sequence DNA, the company’s internal research protocols, and the company’s relationship with those in the scientific community.
 
Applying those competitive factors to WEED, Inc.: our research team averages over 15 years of experience (including peer-reviewed publications and conference presentations), we have dedicated over 14,000 square feet of research space to the resolution of cannabis genomics and the development of new strains, our instrumentation is designed to sequence large pieces of DNA (>25,000 bp - 10 times larger than our typical competitors), and we use custom bioinformatics (DNA sequence analysis software) not available to any other competitor in the industry. We believe these factors, along with our strong relationships in the industry and our unique validation protocols, will allow us to measure up favorably when compared to our competition.
 
Next Generation Sequencing
 
Next-generation sequencing (NGS), introduced nearly ten years ago, is the catch-all term used to describe several sequencing technologies including:
 
 Illumina (Solexa) sequencing
 
 Roche 454 sequencing
 
 Ion torrent: Proton / PGM sequencing
 
 SOLiD sequencing
 
These recent sequencing technologies allow scientists to sequence DNA and RNA much more quickly and cheaply than the previously used Sanger sequencing, and as such, have greatly expanded the study of genomics and molecular biology. Numerous laboratories within the Cannabis community are currently employing this technology.
 
Colorado State University – Boulder
 
To the best of our knowledge, Colorado State University – Boulder is conducting a Cannabis Genomic Research Initiative, which is currently seeking to describe the Cannabis genome. The data generated through this effort is provided through the public domain to growers in an effort to stimulate the production of new, high-value stains of Cannabis.
 
 
33
 
 
Anandia Labs
 
Anandia Labs is conducting work in the area of Cannabis genomics based on sequence work which was completed in 2011. The sequencing work conducted was based on “next generation sequencing” technology and resulted in the generation of tens-of-thousands of DNA segments that have yet to be completely and correctly reassembled. Much of the sequence data that was generated through their sequencing efforts has been placed into the public domain and shared with other laboratories. In some instances, the data has been found to be less than accurate.
 
Phylos Biosciences
 
Phylos Biosciences is currently using DNA-based genetic fingerprinting to establish relationships between strains and to assist in the development of phenotypic databases to accelerate traditional breeding programs. Phylos Biosciences has a primary goal of bringing clarity to the Cannabis market and promote the generation of IP held by individual growers. To the best of our knowledge, Phylos Biosciences is not engaged in whole genome sequencing and is not engaged in any genetic enhancements of the Cannabis strains. They simply supply genetic data to their customer base to more effectively drive the traditional breeding process.
 
New West Genetics
 
New West Genetics aims to improve and develop industrial hemp as a viable crop for the United States. New West Genetics seeks to exploit the diverse end uses of hemp and optimize the genetics of hemp to create a lucrative crop to add to the rotation of US farmers. Industrial hemp’s uses and potential are as great as many major crops, if not more. We believe NWG is utilizing modern sequencing technology and statistical genomics approaches to understand these factors as they apply to hemp production in states where it is legal to grow. Understanding the genotype to phenotype map will be increasingly useful for expanding production of hemp.
 
While we do not believe any of the above companies or universities are direct competitors of ours based on what we believe about their work in the industry, they could be competitors for research funding dollars. We are not aware of the financial situation of many of the above companies and universities, but we will need to raise substantial additional capital in order to fully-fund the five year genomic study and the facilities to complete the study. Most of the above companies and universities are likely better financed than we are and we will need to raise substantial funds in order to compete in the cannabis research industry.
 
Intellectual Property
 
On March 1, 2019, we entered into an Exclusive License and Assignment Agreement (the “Technology Agreement”) with Yissum Research Development Company of the Hebrew University of Jerusalam, Ltd., an entity organized in Israel (“Yissum”). Under the terms of the Technology Agreement, Yissum agreed to grant an exclusive license, and eventually assign, to us certain platform technologies relating to different formulations for administration and delivery of lipophilic compositions, (including cannabinoids) (collectively, the “Technology”) invented and/or developed by Prof. Elka Touitou at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, which technologies are more fully described in the patent applications and/or patents listed in Appendix A to the Technology Agreement.
 
Under the Agreement, in exchange for an exclusive license to use the Existing Technologies, we were to pay Yissum a total of USD$1,000,000 as follows: (i) $100,000 within three (3) business days of signing the Technology Agreement (which amount has been paid), (ii) $400,000 on or before May 1, 2019, and (iii) $500,000 on or before December 31, 2019 (together, the “License Payments”). The grant of the exclusive license and the transfer to us of the responsibility for the administration and control of patent activities and patent expenses related to the Existing Technologies was to occur after the USD$400,000 payment due May 1, 2019. However, prior to that payment, WEED terminated the agreement with Yissum. We do not currently plan to revisit our agreement with Yissum in the future. However, we do plan to continue to work with Professor Elka Touitou of Hebrew University of Jerusalem, who remains our Chairperson for our Israeli Scientific Advisory Board, to implement our research and product development along with WEED Israel clinical trials.
  
Additionally, we consider certain elements of our Cannabis Genomic Study to be trade secrets and we protect it as our intellectual property. In the future, if we are successful in identifying certain Cannabis strains as promising for the treatment of diseases we will seek to patent those strains.
 
Government Regulation
 
As of the end of February 2019, 33 states and the District of Columbia allow its citizens to use medical marijuana. Voters in the states of Colorado, Washington, Alaska, Oregon and the District of Columbia were the first to approve ballot measures to legalize cannabis for adult use. The state laws are in conflict with the Federal Controlled Substances Act, which makes marijuana use and possession illegal at the federal level. The prior administration (President Obama) 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. However, the Trump administration has indicated the potential for stricter enforcement of the marijuana industry at the federal level, but to date there has been very little in terms of action. There is no guarantee that the Trump administration or future administrations will maintain the low-priority enforcement of federal laws in the marijuana industry that was adopted by the Obama administration. The Trump administration or any new administration that follows could change this policy and decide to enforce the federal laws strongly. Any such change in the federal government’s enforcement of current federal laws could cause significant financial damage to our business and our shareholders.
 
Further, and while we do not intend to harvest, distribute or sell cannabis, if we conduct research with the cannabis plant or lease buildings to growers of marijuana, etc., we could be deemed to be participating in cannabis cultivation, which remains illegal under federal law, and exposes us to potential criminal liability, with the additional risk that our properties could be subject to civil forfeiture proceedings.
 
Currently, there are no approvals needed in order to sequence the cannabis genome, which is what is currently being conducted by Sangre. However, prior to doing any research into the medical applications of the cannabis plant once the study is completed, we will need to obtain medicinal cannabis and hemp research licenses from the State of Colorado and New York State. Additionally, if we ever cultivate and process cannabis plants, we will need cultivation and processing licenses from the State of Colorado and New York State which covers cannabis and hemp. These licenses will cost approximately $1,000 to $5,000 per license, and likely take approximately six months to 1 year to obtain.

Sangre Agreement
 
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.
 
Employees
 
As of December 31, 2019, we employed two people on a full time basis, namely Glenn E. Martin and Nicole M. Breen. We also contract with Thomas Perry, and Tom Pool as consultants on a full-time basis who work with Sangre. As of December 31, 2019, WEED Israel Cannabis Ltd. had one consultant. As of December 31, 2019, WEED Australia Ltd. had three consultants. WEED Hong Kong Limited has hired; Ed Lehman of Lehman, Lee and Xu as corporate counsel and Lehman, Lee and Xu Corporate Services Limited as WEED HKs legal representative in China and Hong Kong.
 
Le Veta, Colorado Properties
 
On July 26, 2017, we acquired 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, including 25,000 shares of our common stock, and Sangre took immediate possession of the property. Under the terms of the purchase we were obligated to pay an additional $400,000 in cash and issue an additional 75,000 shares of our common stock over the next two years in order to pay the entire purchase price. On January 12, 2018, we entered into an Amendment No. 1 to the $475,000 principal amount promissory note issued by us to the seller of the property, under which both parties agreed to amend the purchase and the promissory note to allow us to payoff the note in full if we paid $100,000 in cash on or before January 15, 2018 and issued the seller 125,000 shares of common stock, restricted in accordance with Rule 144, on before January 20, 2018. Through an escrow process, we paid the seller $100,000 in cash and issued him 125,000 shares of common stock in accordance with the Amendment No. 1, in exchange for a full release of the deed of trust that was securing the promissory note, on January 17, 2018. As a result, the $475,000 principal promissory note issued to the seller is deemed paid-in-full and fully satisfied and we own the property without encumbrances. To date we have spent $354,000 renovating the property and an additional $400,000 on extraction and analytical lab equipment. Our plans to complete the property renovations, at an estimated cost of $300,000, are currently on hold pending future financing. We will need additional extraction equipment and analytical lab equipment, totaling approximately $700,000. We will need to raise additional funds in order to complete the planned renovations and pay the purchase price for the equipment. We currently have another $1.2 million dollar property in La Veta, CO that was to house Sangre personnel, on the market to sell in order to keep our options open and to fund other operations, and we may or may not consummate a sale of the property, depending on the timing of future financing.
 
On January 3, 2018, Sangre closed on the purchase of a condominium in La Veta, Colorado. Sangre paid $140,000 in cash for the condominium which is a three story condominium, with three bedrooms and three bathrooms and is approximately 1,854 square feet. In February 2018, we closed on the purchase of property, consisting of a home in La Veta, Colorado to house company personnel and consultants for total consideration approximating $1,200,000. The home has 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Under the terms of the purchase agreement, we paid $150,000 down, entered into a note payable in the amount of approximately $1,041,000. We secured a below-market interest rate of 1.81% based on the short-term nature of the term. This note was repaid on October 5, 2018. Sangre took immediate possession of the property. We acquired these properties for the purpose of housing personnel we believe are vital to the 5-year Cannabis Genomic Study. La Veta, Colorado is a small town without many rentals, so it became necessary to find more permanent housing in La Veta, Colorado for those that will be working with Sangre on the study.
 
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 had already made. We made the six $10,000 monthly payments but were not able to pay the balloon payment by the August 3, 2020 deadline, but on July 31, 2020 we worked out an additional extension with the bank. Under the terms of that agreement, we paid $10,000 in exchange for an additional extension and we owed approximately $332,000 to acquire the property. We agreed to pay that amount in installment payments of $10,000 per month for six months beginning September 2020, with a balloon payment of approximately $272,000 due on or before February 1, 2021. These payments are in addition to the approximately $480,000 in payments we have already made. To date we have made the $10,000 payments for September 2020 and October 2020. We need to raise funds in order to make the remaining scheduled payments.

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. Currently, there is no further hearing scheduled in this matter.
 
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 are 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. 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 pending.

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. Due to concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic the case had mainly remained static during 2020 until mid-summer. On July 3, 2020, Plaintiff offered to dismiss the case in exchange for payment of $10,000. We rejected the offer. On July 21, 2020, the Parties filed a Joint Stipulation for Dismissal of all claims with Prejudice. On July 27, 2020, the Court issued its Order granting the Stipulation for Dismissal with Prejudice. The lawsuit is now terminated and all claims against us have been dismissed with prejudice.

We also agreed to issue Mr. Martin a Non-Qualified Stock Option on February 1, 2018 to purchase up to Four Million (4,000,000) shares of our common stock at $10.55 per share, with the options vesting 33 1/3% on August 1, 2018, 33 1/3% on February 1, 2019 and 33 1/3rd % on February 1, 2020. The options expire ten years from the date of grant. As a result of the Amended and Restated Employment Agreement with Mr. Martin, he is no longer entitled to the Seven Million (7,000,000) shares of our common stock as annual salary, or the One Million (1,000,000) shares of a yet-to-be-created class of Series B Preferred Stock if we become fully-reporting, which were both set forth in his prior employment agreement. On December 19, 2018, Mr. Martin requested termination of his Restricted Stock Agreement dated February 1, 2018 and requested that the grants of restricted stock therein be forfeited. As a result, we terminated his Restricted Stock Agreement and the grants of stock thereunder immediately. At the time of the termination none of the transfer restrictions on the shares had been lifted and Mr. Martin never received the shares.
 
On January 23, 2018, our Board of Directors agreed to enter into an Amended and Restated Employment Agreement with Nicole M. Breen. Under the new agreement, Ms. Breen will serve as our Secretary and Treasurer for a five (5) year term in exchange for a base salary of $1,000 per week. The agreement went effective beginning February 1, 2018. Additionally, we agreed to grant Ms. Breen Five Hundred Thousand (500,000) shares of our restricted common stock on February 1, 2018 pursuant to the terms of a Restricted Stock Agreement, with the shares subject to certain restrictions on transfer which expire on 33% of the shares on February 1, 2019, 66% of the shares on February 1, 2020 and 100% of the shares on February 1, 2021. We also agreed to issue Ms. Breen a Non-Qualified Stock Option on February 1, 2018 to purchase up to Two Million (2,000,000) shares of our common stock at $10.55 per share, with the options vesting 33 1/3% on August 1, 2018, 33 1/3% on February 1, 2019 and 33 1/3rd % on February 1, 2020. The options expire ten years from the date of grant. As a result of the Amended and Restated Employment Agreement with Ms. Breen, she is no longer entitled to the One Million (1,000,000) shares of our common stock as annual salary, or the One Hundred Thousand (100,000) shares of a yet-to-be-created class of Series B Preferred Stock if we become fully-reporting, which were both set forth in her prior employment agreement. On December 19, 2018, Ms. Breen requested termination of her Restricted Stock Agreement dated February 1, 2018 and requested that the grants of restricted stock therein be forfeited. As a result, we terminated her Restricted Stock Agreement and the grants of stock thereunder immediately. At the time of the termination none of the transfer restrictions on the shares had been lifted and Ms. Breen never received the shares.

DISCLOSURE OF COMMISSION POSITION ON INDEMNIFICATION FOR SECURITIES ACT LIABILITIES
 
Section 15 of our Articles of Incorporation provides that, to the fullest extent permitted by law, no director or officer shall be personally liable to the corporation or its shareholders for damages for breach of any duty owed to the corporation or its shareholders.
 
Section 16 of our Articles of Incorporation provides that, to the fullest extent permitted by the General Corporation Law of the State of Nevada we will indemnify our officers and directors from and against any and all expenses, liabilities, or other matters.
 
Article IX of our Bylaws further addresses indemnification of our directors and officers and allows us to indemnify our directors in the event they meet certain criteria in terms of acting in good faith and in an official capacity within the scope of their duties, when such conduct leads them to be involved in a legal action.
 
Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”) may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the small business issuer pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the small business issuer has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Act and is, therefore, unenforceable.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
 
To the Board of Directors and
Stockholders of WEED, Inc.
 
Opinion on the Financial Statements
 
We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of WEED, Inc. (the Company) as of December 31, 2019 and 2018 and the related consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income, consolidated statements of changes in stockholders’ equity, and consolidated and combined statements of cash flows for each of the years in the two-year period ending December 31, 2019 and 2018 and the related notes (collectively referred to as the financial statements). In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2019 and 2018 and the results of its consolidated operations and its cash flows, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
 
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 audits. 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 audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated 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 audits, 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 audits 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 audits 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 audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
 
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 2 of the consolidated financial statements, the Company suffered a net loss from operations and has a net capital deficiency, which raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans regarding those matters are also described in Note 2. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.
