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 are looking at announcements from FSD Pharma Inc. (CSE: HUGE) (OTCQB: FSDDF), Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX: WEED) (NYSE: CGC), Lift & Co. Corp. (TSXV: LIFT), TrackLoop Analytics Corp. (CSE: TOOL) (OTCQB: TLOOF) and The Supreme Cannabis Company, Inc. (TSX-V: FIRE) (OTCQX: SPRWF).
FSD Pharma Inc., announced today that it has completed a strategic investment of $1.5 million in Pharmastrip Corp. and signed a definitive collaboration and profit sharing agreement with the company. Under the terms of the agreement, FSD will install Pharmastrip proprietary equipment at its facility in Cobourg, Ontario. FSD will use the equipment to manufacture organic medical cannabis infused oral thin film strips. Pharmastrip will grant FSD an exclusive, perpetual license to manufacture and sell the oral thin film strips in Canada.
Zeeshan Saeed, Founder and President of FSD, commented, "FSD made this strategic investment because of the potential we see in alternative delivery methods for cannabis, such as Pharmastrip's oral thin strips. We expect the demand for alternative delivery methods for both THC and CBD to increase as the market continues to develop. We are excited to install Pharmastrip's proprietary equipment under this collaboration agreement at our Cobourg plant and look forward to beginning production once the necessary license has been granted."
Canopy Growth Corporation announced that it intends to increase its total investment in Canopy Rivers Inc. (TSXV: RIV) by $30 million (CDN). The investment will be made through a private placement of subordinated voting shares in the capital of Canopy Rivers concurrent with Canopy Rivers bought deal offering of Subordinate Voting Shares for gross proceeds of approximately $55 million. This investment is being co-led by CIBC Capital Markets and Eight Capital and is expected to close on or about February 27, 2019.
"The advantage of a strengthened Canopy Rivers/Canopy Growth relationship is that it accelerates and derisks execution for invested companies," said Bruce Linton, Founder and Co-CEO, Canopy Growth. "The strength of the Canopy Rivers team, coupled with their selective approach to business development and execution of strategic investments, creates value for shareholders and for Canopy Growth."
"By increasing Canopy Growth's investment in Canopy Rivers, we are demonstrating our interest in growing great companies, developing selective opportunities and delivering Canopy's shareholders more growth," added Linton.
Lift & Co. Corp. announced today that it has received a multi-year approval from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario ("AGCO") Board for its new CannSell retail certification program, the only approved cannabis retail training program in the Province of Ontario. Pursuant to the Cannabis License Act and Ontario Regulation 468/18, all Ontario cannabis retail employees, holders of retail store authorizations and holders of cannabis retail manager licences, must be CannSell certified prior to legally working in the Province's cannabis retail stores.
CannSell (cannsell.ca, cannsell.ca/fr) launches on February 25, 2019 as a four-hour training program, allowing Ontario retailers plenty of time to have their staff certified ahead of the anticipated opening of cannabis retail locations in the Province on April 1, 2019.
CannSell was developed in partnership with MADD Canada, the country's leading voice on the prevention of impaired driving. Ontario retailers, licence holders and prospective employees interested in gaining employment in Canada's fast-growing cannabis industry are encouraged to visit cannsell.ca starting today to learn more about the certification.
"CannSell is the logical next step for us after already setting the retail education standard in several other Canadian provinces. We commend the AGCO for recognizing our unwavering commitment to acting as the cannabis information authority in Canada," said Matei Olaru, CEO of Lift & Co. "With Ontario representing close to 40 per cent of the Canadian population, Lift & Co. will now be forever shaping the future of the cannabis industry in Canada."
TrackLoop Analytics Corp. announced that it is signing a multi-year distribution agreement with Volta Air Technology and Thermobile, a Southern California based delivery vehicle retrofitter, focusing on refrigerated delivery vans for multiple use cases and industries, including Cannabis and Food. The agreement will open a strategic sales channel for the Company in California, enabling it to scale the delivery of logistics and cold chain tracking technology in a key target market. The California logistics market, alongside Europe and Canada, represents a US$6.2 billion opportunity for the Company.
TrackLoop's real-time supply chain platform monitors temperature-controlled and highly regulated food products (fresh & frozen) in real time, securely and cost effectively, providing an enterprise grade solution to both large and small organizations.
Thermobile specializes in insulated and refrigerated delivery vehicle systems for General Motors Company, Ford Motor Company and Nissan Motor Co Ltd. Volta Air Technology builds full electric & zero emission refrigeration units made for sustainable urban delivery vehicles. Through the partnership with Thermobile, Trackloop tracking technology is installed on delivery vehicles used by major processors and distirbuters within Cannabis value chain. Blackbird, an end user of the Trackloop platform, was recently acquired by TILT Holdings Inc. Blackbird supports more than 250 wholesale and retail cannabis operators in Nevada and California to transport an average of $30 million in wholesale cannabis products every 30 days.
The Supreme Cannabis Company, Inc. announced that the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, 7ACRES, has entered into a supply agreement with the New Brunswick Liquor Corporation to supply recreational cannabis to its retail stores and has been registered as a supplier in the province of Saskatchewan.
Saskatchewan and New Brunswick become 7ACRES' seventh and eighth provincial partners alongside British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Nova Scotia and PEI.
"We're excited to announce that 7ACRES-branded products will be available for adult-use in eight Canadian provinces coast-to-coast," said Navdeep Dhaliwal, CEO of Supreme Cannabis. "In a short amount of time, 7ACRES has won multiple awards and received overwhelmingly enthusiastic consumer feedback. Our Company has made it a priority to expand 7ACRES' domestic distribution so that more Canadians will be able to experience our High-End CannabisTM products."
