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 Aphria Inc. trading on the TSX as APH and US OTC as APHQF, CannTrust Holdings Inc. trading on the TSX as TRST, Centric Health Corporation trading on the TSX as CHH, Canopy Growth Corporation trading on the TSX as WEED and the NYSE as CGC and Namaste Technologies Inc. trading on the TSX-Venture as N.

Aphria Inc. and Rapid Dose Therapeutics Inc., a Canadian bio-technology company focused on innovative drug delivery solutions, announced today that they have signed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") related to RDT's QuickStrip™ products. Under the terms of the MOU, the companies intend to enter into a definitive agreement in the near future pursuant to which RDT will provide Aphria with exclusive global preferred rights to produce, distribute and sell QuickStrip™ products for cannabis markets around the world.

This proposed strategic partnership highlights Aphria's persistent focus on innovation with a view to incorporating the latest technologies to revolutionize the way patients and consumers integrate cannabis into their lives. RDT's innovative QuickStrip™ is an easy-to-use, safe and effective oral fast-dissolving drug delivery system, developed in conjunction with McMaster University through the renowned Adronov Research Group, that provides accurate dosing and potency. With this technology, Aphria intends to produce oral thin strips for both the medical and adult-use cannabis markets.

CannTrust Holdings Inc., one of Canada's leading and most trusted licensed producers of cannabis, announced today that it will collaborate with Hamilton Health Sciences and McMaster University ("McMaster") in Hamilton, Ontario on upcoming medical research studies. Hamilton Health Sciences and McMaster are known world-wide for innovation in education and research, and for its role in developing evidence-based medicine. This partnership strengthens CannTrust's existing commitment to innovation and its contribution to generating evidence regarding the therapeutic use and clinical effectiveness of cannabinoids.

CannTrust will be working with the Michael G. DeGroote Pain Clinic of Hamilton Health Sciences and McMaster University, and the Michael G. DeGroote Institute for Pain Research and Care of McMaster University on a range of upcoming randomized placebo controlled clinical trials (RCT), representing the first Canadian University partnership for the Company. Utilizing CannTrust's broad range of quality cannabis products, the first clinical trial, Cannabis Oil for Chronic Non-Cancer Pain Treatment (CONCEPT), is expected to begin this fall, with additional studies to follow.

The results of these studies will be crucial for researchers, health care practitioners and policy makers to use cannabinoids for designing more effective, safer treatment protocols and public health policies. Throughout the partnership, CannTrust will utilize its more than 40 years of pharmacy, healthcare experience and knowledge to help McMaster and Hamilton Health Sciences study the application of the Company's products as treatment for various patient needs.

An analysis of CannTrust's 48,000 existing customer profiles indicates that pain is one of the primary reasons for utilizing medical cannabis, highlighting the need for trials in this area. Through research at the Centre, CannTrust aims to help healthcare professionals and patients better understand the possible benefits of medical cannabis for those living with pain-related conditions, and beyond.

Centric Health Corporation today announced that it has entered into multi-year supply and service agreements with Canopy Growth Corporation for the provision of medical cannabis. Under the agreements, Canopy Growth will be the preferred education partner and supplier of choice of medical cannabis primarily through its Spectrum Cannabis brand to Centric Health and the seniors that it serves both in long-term care and retirement residences, as well as seniors living in the community.

Spectrum Cannabis and Centric Health will work collaboratively to educate Centric Health's clinical pharmacists, as well as other healthcare partners, residents and seniors and their families, on the benefits and potential applications of medical cannabis. Centric Health's clinical pharmacists are in an ideal position to provide guidance on the safe use of medical cannabis as they are specially trained in geriatric medicine. Many seniors face significant barriers when it comes to access and knowledge around the benefits of medical cannabis but with the support of trained pharmacists and educators, the seniors that Centric Health serves and those living within the community will have the ability to receive assessments and on-going support from a pharmacist to ensure the highest degree of safety and efficacy. Centric Health's unwavering commitment to quality care and resident outcomes through their existing pharmacy operations and focused strategy of expanding service offerings to seniors in the community makes for an ideal long-term strategic partnership.

Namaste Technologies Inc. announced that the Company has achieved a 300% month-on-month growth rate in its Canadian marketplace, in comparison with August of 2017, and 50% growth globally. In the month of August of 2018, the Company generated $1.65M in revenue which represents a 50% increase in revenue in comparison with August of 2017 after consideration of the loss of revenue due to Namaste divesting its US assets that were incorporated into its 2017 sales. The Company has also achieved over 300% growth on its Canadian websites, which now includes over 17,000 customers.

The Company has been focused on developing its Canadian market by enhancing its e-commerce platform and focusing on organic growth through content production, search-engine optimization ("SEO") and in implementation of its proprietary AI technology through the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, Findify AB ("Findify" or "Findify.io"). With increased competition in the Canadian market, Namaste is pleased to have achieved such significant growth in a key market for the Company.

In anticipation of receiving Canada's first medical cannabis "sales-only" license, under the guidelines of Health Canada's ACMPR, expansion of its Canadian platform including hardware sales as well as registered users in both NamasteMD ("NamasteMD.com") and My Uppy Cannabis ("My Uppy") Journal represent significant advances for the Company as it looks forward to launching cannabis sales into its Canadian e-commerce marketplace.
