Under the terms of the agreement, The Pelican Group will help facilitate the rollout of the Company's approximately 600 HempBoxTM machines across its extensive and expanding nationwide network of high traffic retail locations as well as providing all fulfillment, distribution, and servicing needs.

The Company's HempBoxTM machines will offer THC free, pharmaceutical grade CBD, CBG and hemp-infused products for people and pets, and feature advanced robotics, WIFI network capability, seamless touchscreen interfaces and advanced cashless payment options.

"Our agreement with The Pelican Group ensures a successful nationwide rollout of our innovative and state-of-the-art HempBoxTM fully automated CBD vending machines," said Sandro Piancone, Chief Executive Officer of Green Globe International, Inc. "We are looking forward to leveraging Pelican Group's extensive industry experience and national network to support the national supply chain, expanded distribution capabilities for our premium grade CBD, CBG and hemp products, while increasing our overall brand recognition," continued Mr. Piancone.

"We are excited to be selected by Sandro and the HempBox Team to support their national rollout of innovative kiosks and extensive CBD product offerings. The HempBox kiosk is very innovative, and customers will appreciate how user-friendly the kiosk interface is. With age verification at the forefront of all retailers' minds, HempBox did an excellent job with their software to ensure age of users is 100% verified!" said Sean Hanna, EVP of Operations for The Pelican Group.

HempBoxesTM Targeting Two Rapidly Growing Markets

CBD products in vending machines is the combination of two rapidly growing markets. Cashless payments are on the rise more than ever and serve as a key driver for growth in the multi-billion dollar vending space. Technavio reports the vending machine market size will grow by $ 11.24 billion during 2020-2024.

"Although cashless payment systems have consistently grown to represent a higher percentage of total transactions for retailers, the demand for these systems broke all-time records due to the social distancing guidelines required by the Covid-19 pandemic," said Mr. Piancone. "Our HempBoxTM automated CBD vending machines are capitalizing on this new era of limited interactions by not only offering cashless payments, but also a state-of-the-art solution that will facilitate greater product diversity resulting in better inventory control and repeat sales," concluded Mr. Piancone.
