Today's podcast overview/transcript:

Good afternoon and welcome to another episode of Investorideas.com "Potcast" featuring cannabis news, stocks to watch as well as insights from thought leaders and experts.

Today's podcast is sponsored by Cannabis Suisse Corp. (OTC: CSUI), a research & development company licensed under Swiss Cannabis and tobacco regulations to cultivate and sell cannabis. The Company's facilities for producing cannabis are based in Zurich.

The Company grows high quality, organic cannabis with sustainable, all-natural principles. Cannabis Suisse products are laboratory tested to ensure the end users have access to a standardized, safe and consistent product.

In today's podcast we will be looking at a few public company announcements.

Nextleaf Solutions Ltd. (CSE: OILS) (OTCQB: OILFF), Canada's most innovative cannabis extractor, announced today that it has been issued more patents in North America, Asia, and Europe. These additional patents were awarded in jurisdictions including, but not limited to: the United States; Spain; Portugal; Poland; Malta; Ireland; Denmark; and, Cambodia. These latest issued patents pertain to the Company's unique method of extracting and separating cannabinoids and terpenes.

These patents extend the Company's existing patent portfolio to protect methodologies relating to the removal of fats and waxes during the extraction and purification process, achieving more efficient throughput rates and a higher quality distillate. Less refined cannabis extracts contain chlorophyll, fats, and other impurities that result in undesirable flavours and aromas.

With the latest patent issues, OILS has advanced its intellectual property ("IP") stack to over 35 issued patents, and 65 pending patents, for the industrial-scale extraction, and distillation of cannabinoids. With a 100% pending application to issued patent success rate, the Company has developed defendable IP around the most efficient methods for producing distilled THC and CBD at scale within a regulated environment.

OILS considers European IP protection to be particularly important due to the increasing demand for medical cannabis and CBD products in these rapidly legalizing markets. Prohibition Partners projects the legal European cannabinoid market will be worth more than US$39 billion by 2024, compared to US$37 billion for the more mature North American market by the same time.

The Company's patent portfolio includes protection around the methodologies and technology necessary to efficiently process dried cannabis and hemp biomass into high-purity THC and CBD oils that are used in the manufacturing of cannabinoid formulations and products.

"We expect these patents will have a major impact on the production and sale of standardized cannabinoid-based products in Europe over the twenty year life of the patents," said Paul Pedersen, CEO. "These are jurisdictions that collectively manufacture and export over 70% of all drugs and medicines consumed globally, making European IP protection very important to our long-term global strategy", continued Pedersen.

Valens GroWorks Corp. (TSX: VLNS) (OTCQX: VLNCF), a global leader in the end-to-end development and manufacturing of innovative, cannabinoid-based products, today announced it has entered into a syndicated credit facility with Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce as Co-Lead Arranger and Administrative Agent, and ATB Financial as Co-Lead Arranger. Under the terms of the credit facility, the Lenders will provide The Valens Company up to C$40 million of secured debt financing.

The Credit Facility consists of a C$20 million secured term loan and a C$20 million secured revolving loan, with an accordion feature that could allow The Valens Company to increase the aggregate commitments by up to an additional C$10 million. The Credit Facility has a three-year term and is secured by a first ranking charge over substantially all the Company's assets.

Proceeds from the Credit Facility will further strengthen the Company's balance sheet, allowing for the continued expansion of its operations and execution of its corporate strategy, including gaining access to new domestic and global opportunities to increase shareholder value.

"Although we are already well capitalized, the Credit Facility increases our financial flexibility and brings down our overall weighted average cost of capital. With our enhanced balance sheet, we are well positioned to continue to expand our innovative product portfolio, build out our custom manufacturing platform, be opportunistic in a consolidating market and maximize capital allocation to generate the highest return on invested capital for our shareholders," said Tyler Robson, CEO of The Valens Company.

General Cannabis Corp. (OTCQX: CANN), the leading publicly traded Colorado cannabis company, announced today that it has reached an agreement that will bring up to $3 million in strategic growth capital to the company. The investment will be funded by Hershey Strategic Capital LP and Shore Ventures III, LP, entities led by managing member Adam Hershey.

The investment is another important step in General Cannabis' Colorado-based expansion strategy. Over the last two months, General Cannabis became only the second publicly traded cannabis company approved by the State of Colorado's Marijuana Enforcement Division (the "MED") to acquire licensed cultivation, manufacturing and retail cannabis operations throughout the state of Colorado. Shortly thereafter, the company closed its acquisition of Boulder, Colorado-based SevenFive Farm, a 17,000 square feet light deprivation greenhouse. Last week, General Cannabis was conditionally approved by the MED, subject to local approval, to close its next planned acquisition-Pueblo, Colorado-based Cannasseur, a vertically integrated company that commenced operations in 2013 and operates a recreational retail dispensary, a 12,000 square foot light deprivation greenhouse and a manufacturing facility that produces Dabtek, a product line of infused concentrates. General Cannabis' Next Big Crop division continues to operate as an industry leader in the application, design, buildout and operation of cultivation facilities, having worked with over 100 cultivation facilities across the country.

Steve Gutterman, CEO of General Cannabis, said: "This significant capital infusion is a powerful statement about our team, our strategy, the market opportunity and our ability to build shareholder value. We are excited to work with Adam Hershey to leverage the extraordinary market opportunity and competitive advantage offered by MED approval and build on the foundation of our SevenFive Farm acquisition and our planned closing of our Cannasseur agreement. Even in the midst of the tremendous headwinds facing our country and the economy, we believe we are as well-positioned as any company in the space to succeed, and this investment is a further demonstration of that. I want to acknowledge the extraordinary group of executives and professionals in our company, including everyone in our NBC division, our finance, accounting and M&A teams and our new colleagues at SevenFive Farm, whose hard work and focus have put General Cannabis in this position to succeed."

Said Adam Hershey, "As an investor in the cannabis space, we evaluate many potential deals. General Cannabis, which has a great team and a clear growth path, stood out from the rest. We couldn't be more excited to become investors."

Once again, today's podcast was sponsored by Cannabis Suisse Corp. (OTC: CSUI), a research & development company licensed under Swiss Cannabis and tobacco regulations to cultivate and sell cannabis. The Company's facilities for producing cannabis are based in Zurich.

The Company grows high quality, organic cannabis with sustainable, all-natural principles. Cannabis Suisse products are laboratory tested to ensure the end users have access to a standardized, safe and consistent product.
