Recently, west Africa has begun cultivating cannabis in large quantities in a quality controlled environment. IKYLINKS Inc. LLC a.k.a. CannaAfrica is ready to advance cultivation in Ghana, Liberia, Sierra Leone, where our companies register.
Cannabis In Africa
CannaAfrica is continuing to research the market in Nigeria, Mali, Guinea, Egypt, Kenya, and Morocco for future cultivation in 2021-2022, but for now, our primary focus is in Ghana, Liberia, and Sierra for cultivation. We have done exhaustive research into cannabis cultivation. The Green Economy Opportunity and Ghana has taken the lead to legalize the cultivation of cannabis for medical and industrial purposes, bringing Canadian expertise to emerging cannabis markets.
CannaAfrica LLC is a science-focused cannabis company developing analytical testing, processing, and formulation capabilities in Canada along with research, cultivation, extraction, import, distribution, and manufacturing in Germany. Two exclusive 5-year engagements with the Faculty of Pharmacy at a major Canadian university provide certified analytical testing capability, as well as extraction, isolation, and formulation facilities, along with drug research and development expertise.
Managed by CEO and Director Dr. Solomon Alieu Villa-Squire, CannaAfrica strives to bridge the gap between traditional cannabis-based medicines and modern scientific approaches to therapeutic validation.

Companies continue to seek strategic acquisitions, partnerships, and investments as they enter new international markets or seek to relocate a portion of their business or supply chain from higher-risk markets, such as China, to lower-risk markets in Southeast Asia and Africa. There are even those who are considering returning to the U.S. In this global upheaval and opportunity seeking, cannabis is no exception. Recently we have had many conversations with clients and prospective clients in Asia, Europe, and Africa regarding entering the U.S. cannabis marketplace. Many of these companies and their financial partners are sophisticated and understand the complexities of international business. They are successful in their home countries, experienced, and well-capitalized.
Investing In Cannabis In Africa
President Trump has recently instructed the federal government to exclude undocumented immigrants, so we all need to invest now in cannabis. If you return to Africa, there has to be job security. I’m ready to employ ten thousand workers in each country in Africa in the cannabis hemp cultivation industry, and that alone is a win-win situation.
We have done our homework and have highlighted some factors that will give us a competitive advantage in the marketplace; some of the factors are effective and reliable farming processes that can help us sell our produce at competitive prices, good network, and excellent relationship management.
Our competitive advantage lies in the team’s power, and we have healthy relationships with loads of major players in the industries, so we are calling on you to partner with us and support us. We have some of the latest marijuana farming tools and in the process of acquiring equipment that will help us grow these plants in commercial quantities with less stress. Aside from our relationship and equipment, we can confidently boast that we have some of the most experienced hands in the marijuana farming business in the whole of Ghana– west Africa under our payroll.
A business’s future lies in the number of loyal customers they have, their employee’s capacity and competencies, their investment strategy, and the business structure. If all of these factors are missing from a business, it won’t be too long before the business closes. We need your support now.
