Today's podcast overview/transcript:
Good afternoon and welcome to another Investorideas.com "potcast", looking at cannabis news, stocks to watch as well as insights from thought leaders and experts.
Today we will be looking at announcements from Organigram Holdings Inc. (TSX VENTURE: OGI) (OTCQX: OGRMF), Flower One Holdings Inc. (CSE: FONE) (OTCQB: FLOOF), Rapid Dose Therapeutics Inc. (CSE: DOSE), Australis Capital Inc. (CSE: AUSA), Beleave Inc. (CSE: BE) (OTCQX: BLEVF) and Cannvas MedTech Inc. (CSE: MTEC) (OTCPK: CANVF).
Organigram Holdings Inc., the parent company of Organigram Inc., a leading licensed producer of cannabis announced it is the first in the Canadian cannabis industry to introduce Integra Boost packaging technology into its entire line of dry flower products from 1g to 15g to help maintain freshness, extend shelf life and enhance the overall customer experience.
"At Organigram, we are exceptionally proud of the quality of our products," says Ray Gracewood, Chief Commercial Officer, Organigram. "At every step, we look for ways to ensure our products reflect the very best that science and technology have to offer. Now, we can extend that commitment to our product even after it leaves our facility. The Integra Boost technology helps us ensure our customers always receive product that is fresh."
Integra Boost packs have accompanied Organigram's Edison Reserve line of premium cannabis products since the Edison launch in 2018. "Uncompromised quality is a hallmark of the Edison Reserve brand and we've seen first hand the outstanding benefits that come with pairing our commitment to excellence with the Integra Boost technology," explains Gracewood. "We are pleased to now be able to extend that optimal experience of freshness to all Edison products, even after purchase."
Integra Boost packs comprise a glycerin gel and 2-way membrane to create a patented humidity control technology, either releasing or absorbing moisture as needed to ensure the optimal environment for storing cannabis. Long used to help protect, for example, the freshness of food and pharmaceuticals, the technology maintains relative humidity at 62 per cent in a contained environment. This consistency helps preserve the product's color, taste, structural integrity and weight.
Flower One Holdings Inc. announced its first brand partnership for cannabis product fulfillment in Nevada. Flower One and Rapid Dose Therapeutics Inc. entered into a definitive agreement on January 10, 2019, pursuant to which Flower One has been granted license to manufacture, distribute and sell RDT's QuickStrip™, an innovative, proprietary delivery technology for the cannabis market in Nevada.
Flower One expects to produce and distribute QuickStrip™ for the medical and adult recreational cannabis market in Nevada by Spring 2019. RDT's proprietary QuickStrip™ technology is a Quick, Convenient, Precise, Discreet™ oral fast-dissolving drug delivery system. The QuickStrip™ technology offers consumers a discreet and smoke-free alternative to enjoy cannabis.
"Brand partnerships are a key component to Flower One's growth strategy in the Nevada cannabis market," said Ken Villazor, Flower One's President and CEO. "Our cultivation, processing and custom packaging facilities in Nevada will total more than 480,000 square feet. The scale, technology and automation of our facilities will bring precision, quality and a consistent ability for Flower One to bring RDT's innovative QuickStrip™ delivery technology to Nevada's fast-growing cannabis market."
Nevada is one of the most lucrative cannabis markets in the United States, hosting more than 55 million tourists annually from all over the globe to Las Vegas - an audience of almost 1.5 times greater than the population of Canada. The state reported $529.9 million in sales for all 2018 marijuana sales - that includes recreational, medicinal and cannabis-related products.
"Through our Managed Strip Service (MSS), RDT is focused and committed to providing consumers in the United States cannabis markets a Smoke-Free Choice." said Mark Upsdell, CEO of RDT. "RDT's Gold Vendor Status agreement with Flower One will enable them to sell to all the legal dispensaries in Nevada, under both their own private brand and as a white label program to the other licensed growers in Nevada. Our brand partnership with Flower One further strengthens and positions QuickStrip™ for rapid growth as an international brand and delivery device to cannabis consumers - while delivering health and improving outcomes." Villazor adds, "With QuickStrip™'s discreet and measured dosing, we are well positioned to bring a unique and exciting product offering to Las Vegas and Nevada's tourist-driven cannabis market, and we are thrilled to be adding it to Flower One's portfolio of Brand Partners."
Australis Capital Inc. announced that the Company has invested $3,000,000 USD in Folium Biosciences, the largest vertically integrated producer, manufacturer, and distributor of hemp derived phytocannabinoids in the United States. Folium also owns and operates the largest phytocannabinoid extraction and purification facility in the United States, with plans for a new pharmaceutical division and the completion of their Canadian facility in 2019.
"With the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill and the floodgates opening for this vibrant and exciting industry, we are poised for strong growth this year," said Kashif Shan, CEO of Folium. "As a global industry leader and authority in PCR hemp oil extraction and product development, we welcome Australis' participation in this private placement as we continue to pave the way and dominate the marketplace."
Supplying the market with its own unique 0.0% THC phytocannabinoid-rich hemp oil, Folium is a global leader in non-psychoactive cannabinoids. Folium's chromatographic purification process selectively removes the psychoactive component from the phytocannabinoid-rich hemp oil. Folium is certified by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment as a producer of 0.0% THC products, including CBD hemp oil, CBD gel caps, water soluble CBD, Cannabidiol HYDROPCR, CBD e-liquid, CBD concentrates, CBD for pets, CBD salves and balms, CBD tinctures, CBD face masks, and white-label CBD products.
"Our strategic investment in Folium Biosciences provides Australis and our brands access to the leading player in the fast-evolving United States CBD market," said Scott Dowty, CEO of Australis. "Folium's breadth of expertise, spanning production, extraction, branding and commercialization, will greatly benefit Australis as we introduce and expand our CBD product offerings in the United States in the months and years ahead."
Beleave Inc. announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary Beleave Kannabis Corp. has been authorized by Health Canada to sell cannabis oil products effective January 11, 2019. After reviewing the application and supporting documentation, Health Canada granted an amended licence with modified conditions allowing for the sale of cannabis oil under the Cannabis Regulations.
"This license is pivotal to us meeting our goals in 2019, while driving product innovation and augmenting our research and development initiatives," said Roger Ferreira, Ph.D., Beleave's Chief Science Officer. "Oils will continue to make up a larger part of the cannabis market, especially as we ramp up for the regulatory changes coming in 2019. Receiving our sales authorization allows us to provide a wider array of products while providing Beleave with higher margins than dried flower."
Cannvas MedTech Inc., a leading digital cannabis educator and business technology company, and Cannametrics, a collaborative crowd-sourced data science project to classify the effects of cannabis strains and products, announced the signing of definitive joint marketing agreement to explore, in good faith, collaborative opportunities to share insights into data metrics across the Canadian cannabis landscape through their respective Cannvas.Me and Cannametrics.io platforms.
"We are thrilled to be in active talks with Eric and Gina at Cannametrics to discover how our organizations can pool resources to paint a better picture of cannabis consumption across Canada through our accessible and evidence-backed Cannvas.Me cannabis education resource and the innovative Cannametrics platform," said Shawn Moniz, Chief Executive Officer, Cannvas MedTech Inc. "Cannametrics recognizes the value of data and data analysis in surveying cannabis usage among Canadians and we hope to work together to leverage that knowledge with supporting statistics from our Cannvas.Me digital cannabis learning platform to inform the decisions of policymakers, producers and retailers in shaping how cannabis is legislated, distributed and used from coast to coast."
Much like the Cannvas.Me platform strives to inform users of the potential health benefits of cannabis and educate them on whether it fits with their lifestyle, Cannametrics is poised to be an industry disrupter by acknowledging people respond differently to cannabis products and providing personalized recommendations through its advanced machine-learning backend. Developed by Eric Jacobsen, MFC, and Dr. Gina Conte, Ph.D., to address the pressing concern of credibility in the marketplace, Cannametrics' goal is to arm cannabis consumers with a collaborative crowd-sourced tool to track the experiential effects of different cannabis strains and products and streamline their cannabis experience.
