Why the future marijuana superpower could come from this region
When PharmaCielo, now a publicly traded company, formed in 2014 to cultivate medical cannabis in Colombia, some growers needed convincing. Some came from families that farmed chrysanthemums for generations. Cannabis was largely illegal and stigmatized. Scars from the nation’s decadeslong drug war were fresh. A peace deal between the government and leftist FARC rebels was two years away. North America’s marijuana stocks boom had not begun.
Hemp is back in Chile, and the market is ready for investment
INTERVIEW: Barbara Galletti is co-founder and CEO of Pronatura Ltda., and co-creator of Nutranabis, the first Chilean brand exclusively dedicated to the re-introduction and commercialization of organic hemp products in Chile.

Hemp Today: How has the hemp industry developed in Chile to this point?
What you need to know about cannabis in Latin America
When people talk about cannabis, all eyes turn to Canada. After all, the country was of the first to legalize cultivation and usage for medical purposes in 2001. Then, of course, they fully legalized the cultivation, sale, and adult-use of recreational cannabis last year. Canada also houses some of the largest and most notable companies in the industry, including Aurora Cannabis, Canopy Growth, and Tilray.
Chile Brings up full scale marijuana decriminalization, again
Similar to many countries in Latin America, Chile legislation attempts to balance the need to facilitate access and destigmatize the drug for medicinal users, but also to take criminal action against black market drug traffickers who undermine the rule of law across Latin America and the world.
Today the nation is grappling with decriminalization of all forms of cannabis, but anti-decriminalization proponents attempt to undermine that effort.
Medical marijuana spreads across South America
By most measures the anti-narcotics raid was a raging success. After forcing their way into the apartment, police here in Peru’s capital seized five kilograms (11 pounds) of cannabis and equipment, including grow lights and fertilizer.
The entire property in the Lima district of San Miguel, overlooking the South Pacific, had been converted into an underground lab to produce significant quantities of the prohibited soft drug — a lab that the officers had put out of action.
Agriculture Technology Transforming Latin America’s Medical Cannabis Market
Latin America’s medical cannabis market may be a perfect fit for agriculture technology like precision irrigation.

(“Khiron” or the “Company”) (TSXV: KHRN), (OTCQB: KHRNF), (Frankfurt: A2JMZC), a vertically integrated cannabis leader with core operations in Latin America, today announced four key additions to its executive team to strengthen its market reach in Mexico and Chile, and implement its joint venture initiative with Dixie Brands, a partnership that will bring more than 100 market-leading Dixie brands to the Latin American market.
Can Latin America become a world leader in the medical cannabis market?
The medical cannabis market in Latin America is expected to be worth $8.5bn in 2028. Health Europa explores the industry, highlighting the main drivers in the rising economy.
Latin America is emerging as one of the key players in the medicinal cannabis industry, particularly on the growing and agricultural side of business. Although Canada has always been dominant in the medical cannabis market, this is now under threat, and many Canadian companies are looking at moving south and working with Latin American suppliers.
Chile’s cannabis market full of opportunity, tying up deals with foreign firms
A Chilean cannabis firm said the country’s burgeoning marijuana industry is full of opportunity and optimism after tying up a deal with a Canadian technology developer.
Grassroots SpA treats more than 3,000 patients across Chile and it will now ramp up its operations after becoming the exclusive distributor of technologies from Global Cannabis Applications Corp. (CSE: APP). Grassroots aims to bring doctors and patients together via cutting-edge technology.
Canada just became the second nation to legalize marijuana. Here are all the top countries for progressive drug policy reform
Canada recently became the second country — and the first Group of Seven country — to legalize marijuana for adults. As cultural attitudes change, governments around the world are looking to update their policies on drugs more generally.
Uruguay, a small nation of around 3 million people in South America, set a global precedent when former president Jose Mujica signed a law to legalize marijuana in December of 2013.
