Freedom Leaf Names New Chairman Or The Board

NEVADA: The son of U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy PelosI, Paul Pelosi Jr., has joined Freedom Leaf as Chairman, according to a company press release.   Mr. Pelosi will will be charged with overseeing corporate governance, sustainable revenue generation, and investor relations.

Mr. Pelosi is currently Executive Director of the Corporate Governance Initiative (CGI), an organization that is committed to assisting companies adhere to a system of guidelines, practices, and procedures by which a company is directed and controlled. CGI also helps companies create policies to find better balance between the interests of a company’s many stakeholders, such as shareholders, management, patrons, providers, investors, government and the public.

Mr. Pelosi stated, “I will use my influence and best efforts to make Freedom Leaf the foremost advocate and example of corporate governance in the emerging cannabis and industrial hemp business sector. Additionally, I strongly believe that the importance of driving revenue in order to increase the value for the shareholders is an important goal of a company, while still treating all other stakeholders fairly. The Freedom Leaf network is an important tool to provide factual information about the powerful benefits of cannabis. For example, veterans and first responders can develop PTSD and other maladies that result in physical and non-physical pain. The pharmaceutical industry has prescribed opiates to alleviate this pain, but has resulted in the opiate addiction crisis that we are dealing with today. It is almost impossible to withdraw from opiate addiction without some sort of aid, and cannabis seems to be a perfect way to aid in the removal of this addiction. It is also interesting that the states which have legalized medical marijuana are states with dramatically fewer opiate overdose deaths. For this reason I am excited to work with Freedom Leaf to produce factual information and products centered around the benefits of cannabis and CBD.”

Freedom Leaf’s Co-Founder and CEO, Cliff Perry, stated, “I am proud that Mr. Pelosi thinks highly of Freedom Leaf’s prospects and our commitment to the mission of marijuana and hemp legalization. We are looking forward to working closely with Paul to build our company in a way that adheres to the highest standards of Corporate Governance and pursues revenue-enhancing mergers and acquisitions.”

Freedom Leaf, Inc. Books $500,000USD, International License Expansion Moves Forward

NEVADA: Freedom Leaf, the successful publishing and licensing company behind the legal cannabis industry, has quickly reached important revenue-driving milestones in Spain and The Netherlands in its international branding effort.

The advocacy media company has drawn interest from overseas licensees seeking access to its brand, its editorial content, ability to put on events, along with premium products and services under its banner. “We’re a magnet to attract mergers and acquisitions, incubation of new companies and spinoffs,” said Cliff Perry, Freedom Leaf CEO,  “Our news, media, entertainment platforms and other properties raise awareness for investors and seed more potential deal flow.”

Both the Spain and Netherlands licensees have agreed to pay Freedom Leaf Inc. $250,000 each for the right to provide exclusive licensees for the use of the Freedom Leaf Brand and the right to publish Freedom Leaf Magazine in Spanish and Dutch and sell advertising abroad. The deals include public relations, business consulting, brand services, business development and incubation support for cannabis and hemp companies in the Netherlands and Spain. Both countries obtained rights to put on Freedom Leaf music festivals and educational seminars. The licensees in The Netherlands and Spain will also reach out to other potential partners across Europe.

Freedom Leaf’s success in Europe comes after the launch of the Freedom Leaf Cup in April as a part of the Viña Grow Awards at the 21st annual Viña Rock 2016 Music Festival which was attended by 200,000 spectators, in the town of Villarrobledo in Albacete, Spain.

Freedom Leaf, Inc. is in talks to license its brand, products and services in three additional International markets. “The negotiations continue to be very positive,” Perry said. “We’re in discussions with additional companies in what promises to be a meaningful endeavor to speed our growth.” The license will allow licensees to market and publish Freedom Leaf Magazine in their countries, while offering website advertising, products, business and consulting services, seminars, musical festivals and other branded products and services, while also undertaking Public Relations, Business Consulting, Branding Services, Business Development and Incubation for the Cannabis/Hemp companies in their territories under the Freedom Leaf umbrella.

“I’m pleased with our success in rapidly bringing in two new European licensees,” said Cliff Perry, Publisher and CEO of Freedom Leaf, Inc. “We’ve added overseas clients at a much faster rate than anticipated and we are currently reviewing other inquires for International expansion of our brand. The company is only two years old and we have earned the credibility to attract overseas licensees. A great feat in such a short time period.”
