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.
In today's podcast we look at a few public company announcements.
PureK Holdings Corp. (TSX-V: PKAN), along with its majority-owned CBD subsidiary company, PureKana LLC, ("PureKana"), announcedt hat it has entered into a brand partnership with leading cannabis and CBD retailer Chemesis International Inc. (CSE: CSI) (OTC: CADMF), under which PureKana's industry-leading CBD products will become available at hundreds of proprietary Chemesis kiosks throughout the United States.
As a result of this partnership, PureKana's industry-leading range of products - including its flavored pure hemp-derived CBD oils, sleep aids, immunity boosts, vegan CBD-infused gummies, soothing CBD-infused topical creams, and CBD capsules - will become a part of the permanent product offering for Chemesis' A.I.-powered VICKI Intelligent Self-Checkout platform.
Chemesis' VICKI kiosks can be deployed in high traffic areas like shopping malls, workplaces, and transit hubs and feature proprietary technologies to enhance the cannabis retail experience, including age verification, loss prevention, product education, and A.I.-powered virtual assistant technologies.
"Our partnership with Chemesis accelerates our omni-channel distribution of the PureKana Brand. CBD education, innovation, and availability are foundational to our mission to enable wellness authentically every day for our loyal consumers," said Kathy Casey, CEO of PureK Holdings Corp.
"PureKana is a highly regarded brand by consumers and within the industry for their quality and well branded products," said President of Chemesis, Josh Rosenberg. "This partnership will allow Chemesis and PureKana to develop a cohesive strategy to bring high-quality products to consumers through an alternate route to market. Working with a strong brand such as PureKana, will give the VICKI platform another edge over typical brick and mortar dispensaries."
Emerald Health Therapeutics, Inc. (TSXV: EMH) (OTCQX: EMHTF) has launched its new product line, SYNC™ Tabs, an innovative, naturally-flavoured ingestible offering consumers a controlled 10 mg THC dose with predictable onset and offset. This product line expands its offering under its SYNC™ Wellness brand and is the second of Emerald's Defined Dose™ products. The first provincial purchase orders have been received and, beginning April 13th, the tablets will be available to consumers at licensed cannabis retailers and online in BC, Manitoba, and Newfoundland, with Alberta to follow.
Emerald's Cannabis 2.0 and 3.0 strategy focuses on leveraging science-based innovation to serve targeted consumer preferences. This differentiated new product line builds on Emerald's commitment to offering consumers defined dosing and predictable actions that let them control their cannabis consumption experience. SYNC™ Tabs are designed in a familiar tablet form that enables convenient yet discreet cannabis use.
With 10 mg of THC, SYNC™ Tabs offer consumers the measured stringency of Emerald's Defined Dose™ standard, dissolve under the tongue in about three minutes, and provide desired effects within 20 to 30 minutes. Offset is equally controlled, occurring within approximately 90 minutes of taking the tablet. This new product line follows the introduction of Emerald's Nano Fast-Acting Spray product. Sublingual tablets add to the SYNC™ brand's line-up of non-smoking forms of cannabis products, which also include CBD and THC cannabis oils.
Designed to serve customers' use of cannabis for daily wellness routines, SYNC™ Tabs are sugar-free, gluten-free, vegan and come in two natural flavours, cherry and mint. Produced with 100-percent coconut-derived MCT oil, the products offer a sustainably-produced cannabis wellness option. Each pack contains 10 x 10 mg doses, offering 100 mg of THC in total.
"Our product development efforts are centered on providing consumers with distinctive cannabis products offering controlled, predictable actions - with greater precision of dosing and the onset and offset of effects," said Riaz Bandali, President and CEO. "We have a talented product development team that is passionate about science and innovation. They are moving additional new product lines toward launches planned for the next few months and quarters, which we expect to start positively impacting our growth."
SpeakEasy Cannabis Club Ltd. (CSE: EASY), a holder of a federal licence to cultivate, process and sell cannabis under the Cannabis Act. announced that it has entered the final stage of amending its sales license to allow the sale of its extracts and concentrates.
Founder, Marc Geen, "Extractions and concentrates are a rapidly growing and an important part of the cannabis market in Canada. We are eagerly anticipating our licence that once granted, will allow us to participate in this exciting segment of the market. With our large inventory of flower, perfect for creating extracts and concentrates, we are eager to enter the consumer extract market that will become an important part of our business for years to come. Because of our low-cost of production, we will be entering the market with the ability to be very competitive with anyone out there. These are very busy and exciting times and I am thrilled we will soon be able to show what we can do in this segment of the market."
Currently, SpeakEasy is licenced to sell its dried flower to consumers. With the addition of its expected sales amendment, the Company will be well positioned to enter the market with a robust lineup of products ranging from simple artisan style concentrates to more complex live resin vape carts. Formulations have been prepared and brands are ready to launch upon receipt of the amendment. The ability to create a large and diverse range of products and be able to enter each market with a low price point is predicted to give SpeakEasy a significant advantage over companies without an outdoor flower production area.
Keeping production and processing in-house is a critical way to keep costs low. SpeakEasy, in partnership with Frontier Labs, produces, processes and packages its product without losing margin to other companies by contracting out or taking on the cost of shipping between facilities. With SpeakEasy's goal of competing directly with "black market" pricing, keeping costs as low as possible is crucial to our success. Starting with our low-cost input material, which is expected to be among the lowest in the industry, and carrying on to finished product by using efficient, cost effective methods completed in-house, SpeakEasy is able to pass those cost savings on to consumers and be a strong competitor in the market.
Founder, Marc Geen, states, "Having a price advantage, focusing on genuine high-quality and branding that is rooted in the legacy BC market will give us the opportunity to stand out from the crowd. We are a unique company for many reasons, and I believe we will be able to make ourselves well known for all the right reasons across the country."
