Today's podcast overview/transcript:

Good afternoon and welcome to another Investorideas.com Potcast - following Cannabis news, stocks to watch as well as insights from thought leaders and experts.

Today we will be looking at updates from Canopy Growth Corporation trading on the TSX as WEED and the NYSE as CGC, CROP Infrastructure Corp. trading on the CSE as CROP and CannaRoyalty Corp. trading on the CSE as CRZ.

Canopy Growth Corporation announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Spectrum Cannabis has partnered with the Ontario Long Term Care Association (OLTCA) by way of an unrestricted educational grant to pursue the development and implementation of a long-term care (LTC) medical cannabis pilot study and care pathway for utilization in Ontario long term care homes. The six-month pilot aims to measure how medical cannabis use can potentially displace other, less-desirable therapeutics for both pain and cognitive function for residents in a select group of homes.

Development and implementation of the pilot will be coordinated by the OLTCA with Canopy Growth providing all product from its Spectrum Cannabis brand. Key components of the four phase program include: the initial recruiting of long-term care homes; identifying physicians to create a care pathway for the use of medical cannabis in LTC; providing education tools for front line staff and clinicians delivering care to residents; evaluating quality of life, clinical outcomes, caregiver stress and the economic and humanistic benefit of cannabis adoption for residents and ultimately, presenting the findings of the study. This will be one of the world's first and largest medical cannabis pilot programs in the long-term care space and will register as many as 500 residents and follow them over the course of care.

"There is clearly an interest in the long-term care space to explore medical cannabis as an alternative to traditional medications for pain and degenerative cognitive function," commented Mark Zekulin, President & Co-CEO, Canopy Growth. "The pilot study we've announced today is the first step in developing an evidence-based, best practice approach to medical cannabis that will result in consistent care for thousands of seniors and ultimately improve quality of life and outcomes in long-term care homes."

The project will utilize a quality-improvement framework similar to that developed for the OMNI Diabetes Protocol (winner of the OLTCA Quality Improvement Innovation of the Year and now adopted as the provincial standard for diabetes care). This same approach has been used to develop care pathways for COPD, influenza, stroke prevention and spasticity, delivering exceptional outcomes each time, while ensuring the approach is truly interdisciplinary.

"Medical cannabis is currently prescribed for residents as appropriate, but it's still an emerging area," says Candace Chartier, CEO, Ontario Long Term Care Association. "Through this partnership and pilot study, we hope to provide more clarity to long-term care clinicians and frontline staff about the use of medical cannabis for residents."

Today's announcement aligns with Canopy Growth's continued focus through Spectrum Cannabis to provide seniors with access to medical cannabis as well as education on its potential benefits and applications. Most recently, Spectrum Cannabis was named the preferred education partner and supplier of choice of medical cannabis for Centric Health and the seniors that it serves both in long-term care and retirement residences, as well as seniors living in the community.

CROP Infrastructure Corp. announced that further to its LOI with Naturally Splendid Enterprises (TSX-V: NSP) (previously announced on August 14th 2018) CROP will utilize NSP's proprietary HempOmega™ powder created from microencapsulated hemp seed oil in its 'CannaDrink' functional beverage line currently being developed.

CannaDrink will now be available in all other jurisdictions containing HempOmega™ where CBD products are not yet approved. CROP's new cannabis-infused line of soft drinks called CannaDrink will be a zero calorie, non-GMO, ketogenic-friendly line of soda pop, tea, and coffee variations.

HempOmega™ is a unique and proprietary homogenous powder created from microencapsulated hemp seed oil. It is a high-quality and sustainable omega fatty acid alternative ingredient. Due to its unique powder format, it solves the formulation challenge manufacturers face when trying to add oil to existing products and has proven to increase the bioavailability of omega fatty acids. The global carbonated soft drinks market is projected to reach USD 605.6 billion by 2025, according to a March 2018 report by Grand View Research, Inc.

In addition to its CannaDrink beverage line, CROP is working with Naturally Splendid to develop a "Hempire" branded hulled hemp seed and protein powder product line. CROP and Naturally Splendid are currently testing a variety of flavors and formulations created by NSP specifically for the Hempire Brand that will be enhanced with NSP's HempOmega™.

CannaRoyalty Corp., a leading North American cannabis products and brands company, announced today that it has finalized a definitive agreement with Australis Capital Inc. whereby Australis will purchase 2,200,000 common shares (the "Share Purchase") in the capital of Wagner Dimas Inc. ("Wagner Dimas") from Cannroy Delaware Inc. ("Cannroy Delaware"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of CannaRoyalty. The Agreement replaces the letter of intent signed by the parties on September 17, 2018.

"As CannaRoyalty continues to grow and build a solid presence in California as a cannabis brands company and a major third-party distributor, our focus has been concentrated on realizing value from assets that are non-core to our business. This Agreement cements this stated strategy. The approximately 182% return on investment from the sale of our equity stake in Wagner Dimas reinforces our commitment to generate significant returns for shareholders and fund accretive growth in our key markets in North America," commented Marc Lustig, Chairman and CEO of CannaRoyalty.

Pursuant to the Agreement, Australis has agreed to purchase Cannroy Delaware's 22% equity interest in Wagner Dimas. As consideration for the Share Purchase, Australis shall pay C$3,000,000, 1.5 million in cash and 1.5 million by Australis issuing 738,916 units at a deemed price of CAD$2.03 per Unit.
