Today's podcast overview/transcript:

Good morning 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 CannTrust Holdings Inc. trading on the TSX as TRST, The Supreme Cannabis Company, Inc. trading on the TSX-Venture as FIRE and the OTC as SPRWF, Namaste Technologies Inc. trading on the TSX-Venture as N, Cannvas MedTech Inc. trading on the CSE as MTEC and LGC Capital Ltd. trading on the TSX-Venture as LG.

CannTrust Holdings Inc., one of Canada's leading licensed producers and most trusted brands of cannabis announced today that it will continue to put medical cannabis patients' needs first and will absorb the Federal Government's Excise Tax on medical cannabis.

When Bill C-45, the Cannabis Act, received Royal Assent on June 21, 2018, it imposed an Excise Tax, being the greater of $1 per gram or 10% of the sale price of cannabis. Scheduled to come into effect on October 17, 2018, this tax is applicable for both the recreational and the medical market on all cannabis products containing THC. Continuing its commitment to affordable medicine, CannTrust has announced that it will support its medical cannabis customers by continuing to offer competitive pricing of its quality medical cannabis and that the Company will absorb the increased cost as a result of the tax.

CannTrust is also encouraging its more than 47,000 active medical cannabis customers to take a stand by signing Petition E-1528 that supports the removal of the Excise Tax on medical cannabis.

The Supreme Cannabis Company, Inc. announced that the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, 7ACRES, has entered into supply agreements with the Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation ("NSLC") and the PEI Cannabis Management Corporation ("PEICMC") to supply recreational cannabis to their respective retail stores beginning October 17, 2018. 

Nova Scotia and PEI become Supreme Cannabis' fifth and sixth provincial recreational partners alongside Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta and Manitoba. Supreme Cannabis joins a select group of leading cannabis companies that have secured supply agreements with five or more provinces to-date, including: Canopy Growth (TSX:WEED)(NYSE: CGC), Aphria (TSX:APH), Aurora (TSX:ACB), Tilray (NASDAQ: TLRY), and Organigram (TSXV:OGI).

Namaste Technologies Inc. announced its new corporate strategy related to its position in the Canadian recreational cannabis marketplace. Due to much uncertainty surrounding both federal and provincial roll-outs of recreational cannabis, Namaste remained focused solely on the medical cannabis market until such time that a more transparent framework was established. Fast forward to today and it is clearly evident that there has been significant progress made with regards to the rules and regulations outlining the sale and distribution of recreational cannabis. As such, Namaste has made the decision to take a more proactive approach in an attempt to capitalize on several key areas of the recreational market.

Further to recent updates from the Provincial Government of Ontario, Namaste is extremely confident that many of its technology assets will lend themselves to improving the security and distribution of recreational cannabis online and in provincially operated dispensaries. Namaste's platforms, including its exclusive partnership with YPB Group Ltd. ("YPB") (ASX: YPB), have the potential to provide far superior authentication and security for provincially approved cannabis products. In addition, the Company's age and identity verification, with exclusive rights to its facial recognition technology, could help provide a much safer protocol for online retail platforms. Through NamasteMD, the Company has developed and acquired cutting-edge age and identity verification technology which is already in use in Namaste's platform, that would provide significant value to all consumers, through all the varying distribution channels across Canada. Namaste would like to reinforce that both platforms are already proven and in operation and would be available for immediate deployment within these applications.

Cannvas MedTech Inc., a leading business technology company in the cannabis space, announced that the company has exceeded quarterly growth targets and has tripled its number of employees in 2018. Growth in key departments with highly skilled individuals allows Cannvas to remain focused on pushing forward with its first product offering for the global cannabis markets: Cannvas.me, a global cannabis education platform.

The Company's most recent hire is David Davidzon, an accomplished brand strategist and creative writer with deep roots in the food and beverage industry, with over 10 years' experience in corporate branding communications and public relations, digital marketing and social media, joins Cannvas as Marketing Manager. The Company also announces the appointment of Stacey Paterson (Registered Nurse) to its Health and Innovation Advisory Board. Paterson joins Daniel J. Bal, MD and Shirish Patel, MD also recently appointed to the board which oversees content related to the Cannvas.me platform.

LGC Capital Ltd. announced that its Australian medical cannabis company Little Green Pharma (LGP), has medical cannabis crop at its facility south of Perth in Western Australia. The cannabis is currently being prepared for shipment to its certified manufacturer near Perth for conversion to medicinal oil to be sold by prescription.

LGP has just become the market leader in Australia by becoming the first Australian company to locally-grow and produce medicinal cannabis products for sale to Australian patients.

LGP is making high quality and reliable medicinal cannabis products available to Australians. The medicines are cultivated, without pesticides, in a hydroponic facility in Western Australia's southwest region and processed in a manufacturing facility near Perth.

Their products have been subject to extensive assessment and testing based on the Australian TGA regulation, before being distributed under Australia's tightly controlled medical prescription system.

Under the Australian system, medicinal cannabis products must be prescribed by medical practitioners and sold by registered pharmacists.
