Our Company History
Formed in 2017, One World Pharma Inc. (“OWP”) is a fully licensed global supplier of high-quality hemp-derived ingredients for use in the manufacturing of Consumer Packaged Goods (CPGs) and Over-the-Counter (OTC) products. OWP offers a reliable and sustainable supply chain for chemical formulators, food & beverage producers as well as beauty product manufacturers worldwide. The company maintains corporate offices in Las Vegas, NV and Bogota Colombia and a facility in Popayan, Colombia.
Colombia is positioned to be a significant supplier of hemp-derived ingredients to the world based on the ideal agricultural climate, supportive legislation, and the ability to grow cannabis at substantially reduced costs compared to competing countries.
OWP has been granted four key licenses:
• Non-Psychoactive Low THC Cultivation
• Manufacture of Hemp Derivatives
• Seed Use License
OWP has formed a management team with many years of comprehensive experience in all aspects of industrial agriculture and the hemp sector. Current operations consist of cultivation for R&D and commercial export at the facility.
OWP has formed exclusive agreements with local indigenous communities and agricultural co-operatives in the Colombian Andes whereby OWP will supply the seeds, quality control protocols and operating procedures. The local Co-operatives will then sell OWP the raw mass to be refined into ingredients for export.
OWP is currently growing and harvesting in its covered greenhouses optimized for hemp cultivation for research and development purposes. It has formal approval from ICA (Colombian Agriculture and Livestock Institute) for the registration of 25 cultivars subject to the characterization of these strains. OWP has completed the characterization of several non-psychoactive cultivars in 2019.

Partnering with the local indigenous people and local farmers in the region, One World Pharma Inc. empowers the community through education, building infrastructure, and expanding their economy by introducing them to the international market.
With the support of Mrs. Liliana “Mama” Pechene (recipient of the 2018 Colombian Leadership Award), One World Pharma is positioned to be the driving force in creating a sustainable community which truly focuses on social responsibility and the environment.
One World Pharma has invested greatly in the development and the relationship with the surrounding indigenous people as well as with the local farmers. By creating a self-sustaining infrastructure and economy, the local people are able to receive the genetics and seeds to grow hemp in order to resell back. To further enhance their involvement, OWP made several of the local community part of the shareholders in the company. This cooperation truly strengthens and solidifies the relationship with the community as they benefit from the new economy.
