MODIFICATION OF INDEPENDENT CONSULTING AGREEMENT
This Modification of Independent Consulting Agreement ("Agreement"), dated this 18th day of July 2020, is by and between Cannabis Global, Inc. a Nevada Corporation having a principal place of business at 520 South Grand Avenue, Ste. 320, Los Angeles, CA 90071 ("CGI"), and New Horizons Laboratory Services, Inc., a Wyoming corporation, having a principal place of business at 1077 Pacific Coast Highway #146, Seal Beach, CA 90740 ("New Horizons"). Both CGI and New Horizons may be individually referred to as a “Party” and collectively referred to as the “Parties.”
Whereas, in writing dated February 12, 2019, CGI and New Horizons entered into a written consulting agreement (hereafter referred to as the “Consulting Agreement”), a copy of which is attached to this Agreement as Exhibit 1 and incorporated fully herein by reference.
WHEREAS, as consideration for retaining New Horizons’ services under the Consulting Agreement, CGI issued New Horizons the promissory note, (the “Compensation Note”), attached to this Agreement as Exhibit 2 and incorporated fully herein by reference.
WHEREAS, CGI and New Horizons met and conferred regarding the terms and conditions of the Consulting Agreement and consideration payable pursuant thereto, including the terms and conditions of the Compensation Note.
WHEREAS, CGI and New Horizons deem it to be in their mutual best interest to amend and modify the Consulting Agreement pursuant to Section 9.5 thereof, including the Effective Date and the consideration payable under the Consulting Agreement; and,
NOW THEREFORE, in consideration for the mutual promises and covenants contained herein, the sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, CGI and New Horizons hereto agree as follows:
|Section||1. Incorporation of the RECITALS clauses.|
1.1. CGI and New Horizons acknowledge that all of the representations set forth in the RECITALS clauses of this Agreement are incorporated herein by reference and made a material part of this Agreement with the same force and effect as if more fully set forth here at. CGI and NEW HORIZONS agree to waive any rule of contract construction or legal presumption that would prohibit any court of competent jurisdiction from construing or enforcing this Agreement based upon the contents of the RECITALS above.
|Section||2. Confirmation and Modification of Consulting Agreement.|
2.1. Correction of Effective Date. The Parties amend the Effective Date to correct a scrivener’s error. Affiliates acquired control over the Company on June 19, 2019. CGI was thus operational as of June 19, 2019, and the Effective Date of the Consulting Agreement is amended to delete February 12, 2019, and replace it with June 19, 2019.
2.2. Confirmation of Section 3.1 Cash Compensation. The Parties acknowledge and confirm the contents of Section 3.1 of the Consulting Agreement, requiring CGI to pay monthly cash payments due New Horizons in the amount of six thousand dollars ($6,000.00), and an additional monthly deferred cash payment of four thousand dollars ($4,000.00), equaling a total compensation of ten thousand dollars ($10,000.00) per month. The Parties also agree to amicably meet and confer regarding resolution of the deferred monthly compensation upon the end of the term.
2.3. Cancellation of Compensation Note. The Parties agree to modify the Consulting Agreement pursuant to Section 9.5 thereof, and further agree to delete Section 3.2 of the Consulting Agreement and cancel the Compensation Note in Exhibit 2 with prejudice.
2.4. Other Parts of Consulting Agreement Unaffected. Except as otherwise amended above, the Parties confirm the ongoing parts of the Consulting Agreement as being in full force and effect.
