Since then, Liam has shifted his focus entirely into the operational and commercial aspects of the medical cannabis industry, being an instrumental figure in the commercial success of multiple medical cannabis projects in various countries. Since 2020 Liam has secured several exclusive sales agreements with some of the largest importers and exporters of medicinal cannabis in the world introducing over 10 tonnes in exports to date and generating millions of dollars in sales revenues. In 2021, Liam led the first licensed export of cannabis genetics from the UK to South Africa licensed to be used in the production of an active pharmaceutical ingredient intended for medical use.
