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 InvestorIdeas interviews Jason Wilson, the Cannabis Expert for ETFMG, which offers a full suite of cannabis ETFs for investors, including the first and largest cannabis-focused ETF: MJ, the ETFMG Alternative Harvest ETF as well as MJUS, MJIN and MJXL. Wilson discussed each of these different Cannabis ETFs in more detail, what trends are being noticed in both the US and the Global cannabis space as well as which areas of the industry are of most interest to investors today.

 

With over 15 years of experience in the asset management, finance and structured product space, Mr. Wilson has a track record of bringing hard-to-access asset classes to market. He has held leadership and senior positions at several leading financial institutions.

 

Most recently, Jason was Senior Vice President at INFOR Financial Inc. INFOR is a leading boutique investment bank based in Toronto, Canada that has worked in connection with a number of companies in the legal cannabis industry, including acting as advisor to Canopy Growth Corporation in connection with entering into its strategic relationship with Constellation Brands. He also worked at the investment banking divisions of Société Générale, France’s third largest bank, and at CIBC, one of the five largest banks in Canada. 

 

While at Société Générale and CIBC, Jason provided asset managers and financial institutions with various capital raising, financing and risk mitigation solutions and strategies. Jason has an LLB from the University of Western Ontario. Prior to completing his university studies, Jason was a member of the Canadian Forces and is a recipient of the Gulf of Kuwait Medal, awarded for his engagement in direct combat during the Gulf War in 1991.

 

When asked about each o ETFMG’s cannabis ETF’s Wilson commented, “we launched MJ, the ETFMG Alternative Harvest ETF back in 2017, which was the first US listed cannabis focussed ETF. Since then we’ve added three more. We have one that focuses just on US operators, which trades as MJUS, we also have one that provides 2X Upside Exposure (MJXL) and one that provides 2X Inverve Exposure (MJIN) to the Global Cannabis Industry. Those four cannabis focussed ETFs offer investors the full global and domestic optionality on the cannabis industry.”

 

When asked about how current politics continue to affect US stock prices and speculation surrounding the US cannabis industry, Wilson commented “we’re seeing momentum on the Federal level stalled, not because of issues of partisanship, but instead mostly on a disagreement on the level of reform that is necessary. So it’s less a question of getting enough support from both sides of the aisle to get legalization but instead how far do some of the social programs go and things of that nature. That being said, we've still seen a lot of interest in US stocks at a retail and private equity level.”

 

Wilson continued, “If you look at the US MSO’s as an example, we can see that before the election last year some of their stocks were drifting sideways and down, but having the Democrats complete the full sweep really brought a lot of optimism to the space and saw their prices rally very strongly, really until February or March. Then the big expectation was that this was the first time we would see a Cannabis Reform bill tabled in the Senate. To have Schumer bring out the COA kind of took the wind out of the sails because his draft bill wasn't really even so much a draft bill as it was a talking paper and beyond that, was so overreaching and extensive that it was dead on arrival. One of the more difficult things from the Republican side was the 25% Federal Excise tax. That was the first pin prick in the cannabis balloon and you’ve seen stocks represent that since then. We have seen other pieces of legislation proposed, for instance from Nancy Mace, which was a very sensible piece of legislation. The push and pull isn’t between Democrats and Republicans as per weather or not cannabis should be legalized, but instead the push and pull is between how extensive is the reform and right now you have the Senate Majority Leader pushing for very extensive reform, so much so that you’re not going to get those extra Republican seats necessary to drive any legislation forward.”

 

Wilson went on to discuss some of the current trends being noticed and how these differ in both the domestic US market and Global cannabis space as well as what he expects to have the largest impact on the industry over the next few months.

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 InvestorIdeas interviews Pankaj Gogia, CEO of Psychedelic Water, the first legal psychedelic, mood-boosting, hangover-free fun that has recently been featured in Inside Hook, Yahoo!, VICE, Business Insider, Financial Post. According to many testimonials the writer "drank the 'psychedelic water' going viral on TikTok, and I felt my anxiety melt away." Gogia went on to discuss how Psychedelic Water came to be, being a pioneer in the Psychedelic space, as well as how he sees this industry and his company evolving as people’s understanding and comfort level with Psychedelics continues to change.

 

Discussing the company’s start, Gogia commented, “We launched in the US in early 2021 and since then we have seen massive traction and curiosity. In a period of roughly 10 months we have had over 40,000 customers and over 12 million views on Tik Tok.”

 

When asked what factors lead to the company’s early success and brand traction Gogia commented, “I think the reality is that we sort of hit a nerve as there is definitely a curiosity around what’s going on with Psychedelics. I think our name, Psychedelic Water, I think that by itself is probably the number one factor. I think second is our packaging and the can. What we have built out there is extremely unique, a holographic can, and was an extremely hard process to get there. I think between those two factors, a lot of our marketing has been very organic to be honest. Consumers love the product and that’s where a lot of our success got started.”

 



 

 

Psychedelic Water works because it is the world's first legal psychedelic blend of kava root, damiana leaf, and green tea leaf extract for an experience like no other. The innovators behind this global psychedelic experience sold out their first production run and are rapidly expanding into retail stores nationwide.

 

When asked about how the company is looking to expand their product offerings in the future, Gogia went on to say, “As we started to build out this company what we really wanted to do was build a brand. We have trademarks with Psychedelic Water and are looking at getting other trademarks applied to different categories such as Coffee, Tea, Cookies, etc. What you can expect from our company is a stew of products in the upcoming years as we grow with success. In terms of formulation as we looked at coming to market, we saw that a lot of the companies were focussed on Psychedelics in a more traditional sense, more in Pharma and the Scientific side, but nobody was looking from a CPG perspective and that’s where we came up with the concept. What we wanted to do was bring a product to market that was real, so it does have a psychoactive effect, but is legal, so that’s how we landed on our current ingredients. We will be adding other ingredients that could have similar impact but are legal in nature and as and when legalization happens and continues, we will look at adding more products that contain more traditional Psychedelics.”

 

Gogia continued, “It’s been a real journey for us to normalize Psychedelics into the community. I think we are creating a new curiosity and removing any sort of stigmas associated with Psychedelics by having it become more normal and casual.”

 

Gogia went on to discuss how some in the Psychedelic community and industry have reacted to the product so far, how he sees the company evolving moving forward as well as the impact psychedelics could have on society as they continue to become more normalized.

 

Psychedelic Water, which just launched earlier this year, made over $1 million in sales over its first few months. In addition to being available at www.psychedelicwater.com, you can now find it on Amazon and in stores around the country.

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 Investorideas interviews Becky Postar, the COO of HDCS (Higher-Risk Deposit Compliance Solutions), where we discussed the recent move from JP Morgan to no longer trade in OTC Cannabis stocks, industry banking compliance today and how it is evolving as well as how banking for the cannabis sector is expected to evolve and expand with growing demand and regulatory changes.

 

Becky is a veteran banking officer of 20 years who has extensive experience in business development, lending, and compliance training for multiple banks. She has deep domain expertise in BSA, AML, KYC and the evolving cannabis regulations.

 

When asked about HDCS as well as her background in the industry Postar commented, “HDCS is a full-service boutique consulting company.  Our clients are financial institutions that either are banking higher risk industries (primarily cannabis and crypto) or want us to assist with the implantation of a higher-risk compliance program. We are passionate about guiding financial institutions through the processes of implementing a risk-focused compliance banking program, including the beginning steps of research, to implementation and supporting the financial institution through regulatory examinations, and not just depository services but lending as well.”

 

Postar continued, “I am the COO of HDCS and I am a veteran banker with over 20 years of experience including both community and big banks with experience in internal audit, creating and implementing training programs, commercial credit underwriting and commercial lending. Most recently, I moved into cannabis banking and have become a subject matter expert in the cannabis industry specifically around laws, regulations and legislation.”

 

When asked about how the recent announcement from JP Morgan has affected HDCS and if there has been any positives or negatives as far as attracting new clients, Becky commented, “Uhm, a little bit of both. This could mean even less FIs are entering the cannabis space but it does solidify why an FI would want to look into hiring a consulting firm like mine. I am zero % surprised by the announcement and here is why: This is a net new industry.  We do not have the long-term data that we have on other industries that spans over decades. Some are saying we are approaching a bubble, not only in the US but another one in Canada, so the timing for the announcement from JPMorgan is not surprising.”

 

Becky continued discussing some of the larger risks and issues facing the cannabis industry today such as , “Not a lot of large institutions welcome cannabis related businesses and for most CRBs companies they find it difficult to find companies willing to work with CRB and when they do, the pricing is much higher. For example: crop insurance, 401(k) plans and other benefits for their employees, Armored car services and additional expenses on security and competing against the black market.”

 

The discussion of Federal legislative change continues to hang over the industry, and in regards to realistic expectations Postar commented, “with the changes in the Senate as a result of the last election, I thought we would see banking reform. The SAFE Banking Act of 2021 has bipartisan support to pass, but key Democrats won’t release it to let it have its time on the floor because they are demanding broader reform.  Most Americans support reform, but it is going to take some more work to get key Republicans on board.  And how can we do that?  We could start by passing the research bills that are in Congress and banking reform. Look at alcohol prohibition, change doesn’t happen overnight so we should pass what we can pass while working on broader reform.”

 

Postar continued, “I mentioned earlier that there will always be a banking shortage for the cannabis industry, and here’s where we sit today according to the FinCEN Marijuana Banking Update date June 30, 2021:  706 financial institutions filed Marijuana Related SARs comprised of 518 Banks and 188 Credit Unions with 202,734 total SARs filed. You compare that to June 30, 2017 with 318 Banks and 50 Credit Unions and 28,651 total SARs filed. It is safe to say less than 700 financial institutions have active cannabis banking programs as some of these over 200,000 filings are “Termination” SARs from financial institutions that do not wish to bank the industry. Me and others in the industry believe this number to be closer to 200 or less.”

 

Becky went on to discuss some of the current banking compliance issues facing the industry today and how she sees changes on the horizon as well as HDCS’s recent webinars on the cannabis industry and what many clients are looking for guidance on.
