Today's podcast overview/transcript:

Good morning and welcome to another 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 FSD Pharma Inc. trading on the CSE as HUGE and the OTC as FSDDF, National Access Cannabis Corp. trading on the TSX-VENTURE as META, GTEC Holdings Ltd. trading on the TSX-Venture as GTEC and the OTC as GGTTF and Neptune Technologies & Bioressources Inc. trading on the NASDAQ and the TSX as NEPT.

But first, Cannabis stocks traded up yesterday with positive news, the largest being the $5 million investment from Constellation Brands into Canopy Growth Corp., though Canopy wasn’t the only stock on the rise. Canopy was up 30.42% or $7.49, while Aphria also had a boost of 20.53% or $1.79 and Aurora was up 19.48% or $1.04. Cannabis stocks continued to rise from news earlier in the week with Ontario adding private retailers to its plan to sell recreational cannabis come October.

FSD Pharma Inc., announced today the launch of a clinical research collaborative program in Israel, via its strategic R&D partner, SciCann Therapeutics Inc.

This comprehensive clinical research program will be executed through SciCann's strategic alliance and collaboration agreement with Mor Research Applications Ltd. - the technology transfer office and commercial arm of Clalit Healthcare Services, Israel's largest medical insurer and healthcare provider, which operates a network of 14 full scale hospitals throughout Israel, employs over 9,000 physicians and serves the healthcare needs of over 50% of Israel's population.

As announced previously, FSD Pharma has secured the exclusive licensing rights for the manufacturing and distribution of SciCann's line of proprietary, patent-pending, cannabinoid-based and indication-specific products in Canada.

Under the strategic alliance agreement with Mor, FSD Pharma and SciCann will execute a series of rigorous, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical studies to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of these products, in order to bring to market advanced and innovative cannabinoid-based products that are backed up by solid clinical data achieved through the highest standards of rigorous and objective clinical research typical for the development process of pharmaceutical products.

National Access Cannabis Corp., Canada's best practices leader in delivering safe and responsible access to legal cannabis, and The Second Cup Ltd. (TSX:SCU), Canada's second-largest retailer of specialty coffee,  announced an update to their national strategic alliance in response to the Ontario government's announcement to roll out a private retail cannabis model starting April 1, 2019.

NAC and Second Cup originally announced their strategic alliance in April 2018, through which the two companies will develop a network of NAC-branded and operated recreational cannabis stores in provinces where legally permissible.

Based on the Ontario government's announcement earlier this week, NAC and Second Cup have begun actively reviewing potential Second Cup locations in the province for conversion to NAC-operated cannabis retail stores, under the brand and banner Meta Cannabis Supply Co.™ (aka META).

There are more than 130 Second Cup locations across Ontario, with a significant number of sites in high-traffic, densely populated municipalities, including Ottawa and Toronto. As more details become available through legislation, the companies will continue to assess locations for Ontario retail opportunities. Conversion of any Second Cup café to a META recreational cannabis store will be conditional on obtaining a retail license from provincial regulators and the approval of Second Cup and the applicable franchisee and landlord.

Neptune Technologies & Bioressources Inc. announced the appointment of Ms. Hélène F. Fortin to its Board of Directors.

"We are pleased that Ms. Fortin has accepted to join the Board of Neptune," said John Moretz, Chairman. "Her extensive experience on the boards of leading public and private corporations combined with her impressive financial and governance background, will be extremely beneficial for Neptune, as we seek to significantly grow our activities in the multi-billion dollar cannabis market."

GTEC Holdings Ltd. provided an update on its wholly owned subsidiary, Spectre Labs Inc.

GTEC previously announced that it had acquired a warehouse located in Kelowna, B.C. for the purpose of submitting an application to the Office of Controlled Substances for a Dealer's Licence. The site will be developed in a phased approach and will serve as a Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) grade facility with extraction, formulation, compounding and export capabilities to support GTEC's Licensed Producers and the global medical market. GTEC also intends to utilize this facility to manufacture edible products that are expected to be incorporated into Health Canada's regulatory framework in 2019. Upon Health Canada approval of phase one, the facility will be capable of producing up to 24,500 grams of cannabis oil per day (equivalent to more than 8,500 kilograms per annum), with capacity to increase production through future phased development.
