The Company acquired 100% of the membership interests in Pure Health Products, LLCa New York limited liability company (“PHP” or “Pure Health Products“) effective December 28, 2018. The Company runs its manufacturing operations through PHP and holds and sells several of its brands through PHP as well. The Company’s durable equipment products, such as sam® units with and without CBD infused pads, are marketed and sold through its wholly-owned subsidiaries,
Duramed Inc. (incorporated on November 29, 2018) and Duramed MI LLC (fka
DuramedNJ, LLC) (incorporated on May 29, 2019) (collectively, “Duramed”). Duramed began operating on or about February 1, 2019. Most of the Company’s consumer products include hemp derived cannabidiol (“CBD”); however, the Company has just recently begun extracting cannabinol (“CBN”) and cannabigerol (“CBG”) for wholesale to third-parties looking to incorporate such compounds into their products through its wholly owned subsidiaries, Botanical Biotech, LLC
(incorporated March 10, 2021) and TN Botanicals LLC and CO Botanicals LLC (both incorporated in August 2021). The three subsidiaries have also begun synthesizing Delta-8 and Delta-10 from hemp. Delta-8 can produce similar, although less potent, effects as delta-9 (commonly referred to as THC); however, the legality of hemp derived delta-8 is in a gray area.
The Company is in the business of promoting health and wellness through its development, manufacture and sale of products containing cannabinoids derived from hemp biomass and the licensing of durable medical devices. Can B?’s products include oils, creams, moisturisers, isolates, gel caps, spa products, and concentrates and lifestyle products. Can B? develops its own line of proprietary products as well as seeks synergistic value through acquisitions in the hemp industry. Can B? aims to be the premier provider of the highest quality hemp derived products on the market through sourcing the best raw material and offering a variety of products we believe will improve people’s lives in a variety of areas.
After careful consideration and analysis of the economics, supply chain, processing logistics, and management of manpower the Company decided to consolidate operations in its CO operations in Mead and Ft. Morgan. The company remains fully vertically integrated in legal hemp operations and sales with processing of hemp biomass and crude hemp oil into distillate, isolate, and ultimately into isomers. The Company moved all of its help processing equipment previously located in its Miami, FL operation under Botanical Biotech, LLC to its main hemp processing center in CO. The Company also terminated its lease with the Miami landlord The Company moved all of the hemp processing equipment previously located in its McMinnville, TN operation under TN Botanicals, LLC to its main hemp processing center in CO.
As a result of these equipment moves, the Colorado operation will, once fully operational, improve operating efficiencies, increase management oversight, and be able to increase throughput by doubling the previous three independent operating facilities. The Company expects to have the consolidated operation fully operational by the end of fiscal 2022. Senior management of the Company will be on-site in CO during this consolidation period to ensure maximum efficiencies and continue operations during this rebuilding period. Immediate impact of the consolidation is elimination of duplicate lines, better coordination of customer orders, reduction in transportation charges, and manpower efficiencies with larger batch sizes and reduced personnel.
The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of CANB and its operational wholly owned subsidiaries.

The novel coronavirus disease of 2019 (“COVID-19”) outbreak has affected the Company’s operations as set forth above. The full impact of the COVID-19 outbreak continues to evolve. As such, it is uncertain as to the full magnitude that the pandemic will have on our financial condition, liquidity, and future results of operations. Management is actively monitoring the impact of the global situation on our financial condition, liquidity, operations, suppliers, industry, and workforce. Given the daily evolution of the COVID-19 outbreak and the global responses to curb its spread, we are not able to estimate the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak on our results of operations, financial condition, or liquidity for the foreseeable future. Presently, our Duramed operations are at 80% of pre-COVID operational level. Our expectation that as business open, and in particular medical offices, that our recovery will progress in sync with the speed of the business openings and expect to be back to pre-COVID operational level by fiscal year 2023. Sales of CBD and related products continue to moderately recover and we expect to be back at pre-COVID levels by fiscal year 2023.
