#CBD Is Going to the Dogs: Continued Growth in #Hemp Derived #Pet Products; (TSX: $WEED.TO) (NYSE: $CGC) (OTC: $LRSV) (CSE: DIX.U.C) (CSE: $SOL.C) (OTCQB: $SOLCF)



Point Roberts WA, Delta, BC – March 4, 2019 - Investorideas.com, a leading investor news resource covering hemp and cannabis stocks releases a snapshot looking at continued growth in the CBD pet industry and potential movers in the space.


Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX: WEED.TO) (NYSE: CGC), always a strong market indicator, partnered with Sequential Brands Group, Inc. to announce that Martha Stewart has joined the Company in an advisory role to assist with developing and positioning a broad new line of product offerings across multiple categories, one of which is the rapidly growing pet wellness category.

"I am delighted to establish this partnership with Canopy Growth and share with them the knowledge I have gained after years of experience in the subject of living," said Martha Stewart. "I'm especially looking forward to our first collaboration together, which will offer sensible products for people's beloved pets."

Canopy Growth is not taking this sector lightly, having previously reported that it will invest between $100 and $150 million in a hemp industrial park in New York State with the intended purpose of being the Company's first hemp facility in the United States.

Linkreservations Inc. (OTC: LRSV), a provider of cannabidiol (CBD) products specifically tailored for pets, today announced plans to change the name of the Company to LinkResPet. The new rebrand will follow a restructuring and new focus on the holistic petcare market, specifically cannabinoid (CBD) products tailored for pets.

This follows news recently announced the acquisition of an e-commerce website called www.LinkResPet.com.

“The decision to change the company name comes as part of our change in direction as a business to focus on the petcare and CBD industries. Both markets are seeing a big boost in demand and good quality response for both, so it is a great time to enter the market with products that will truly make a difference,” said Rene Lauritsen, CEO at LinkResPet. “Our mission is to provide the best quality CBD solutions for pets, targeted at treating dogs, cats and horses – we want our name to reflect that commitment.”

Describing their brand on their site, LinkResPet says,”Our CBD products can help pets in a variety of ways: Allergies and Immune System, Hip and Joint Mobility, Anxiety and Comfort and Everyday Health and Wellness.”

Being one of the few, if not the only public company to include CBD horse products, LinkResPet  notes, “When it comes to the use of CBD in horses, you can only use CBD supplements specifically designed for them, as they are large animals and regular supplements would be too minimal to be effective.”

Dixie Brands Inc. (CSE: DIXI.U), one of the cannabis industry's leading consumer packaged goods companies, recently announced that its pet wellness subsidiary, Therabis LLC is entering the feline market with hemp-based soft chews designed to promote stress relief. "Calm and QuietTM” soft chew treats will be Therabis' first product for cats, building upon its successful line of hemp-based treats and food toppers for dogs.

"We are introducing the first hemp-based, soft-chew cat treat that is targeting a specific indication – in this case stress," said Bob Rubin, President of Therabis.  "Our goal is to ease stress in cats and help them maintain a calm demeanor in situations that may cause them to be apprehensive. Pets are members of our families, and we believe people will respond very favorably to an all-natural product that can help improve their cats' quality of life."

SOL Global Investments Corp. (CSE: SOL) (OTCQB: SOLCF), has taken notice of this growing segment, having announced the formation of a new international hemp-focused subsidiary, Heavenly Rx Ltd.

Heavenly Rx intends to hold controlling ownership interests in various industry-leading assets in the hemp/CBD and THC-free cannabinoid wellness space, with an initial focus on hemp cultivation, processing and the manufacturing of a diverse range of traditional CBD products including oils, tinctures, balms, and vape-ready products. Additionally, Heavenly Rx intends to include several proprietary brands across numerous consumer product group verticals such as cosmetics and beauty products, bath and body products, infused foods (subject to governmental approvals and/or compliance) and a number of pet-related products.

As more pet owners become increasingly concerned with their pets overall health, including mental and physical, (as opposed to simply physical) and nutrition, the Hemp and CBD space continues to gain traction and we will continue to see more natural, healthy products come to market to help improve the overall lives of our four-footed family members.

Delta, Kelowna, BC –March 1, 2019 (Investorideas.com Newswire) www.Investorideas.com, a global news source covering leading sectors including marijuana and hemp stocks and its potcast site, www.potcasts.ca  release today’s edition of Investorideas.com potcastsCM - cannabis news and stocks to watch plus insight from thought leaders and experts.

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 The Flowr Corporation (TSXV: FLWR) (OTC: FLWPF), Village Farms International, Inc. (TSX:VFF) (OTC: VFFIF) and Canopy Growth (TSX: WEED) (NYSE: CGC).

But first, with more than 300,0001 Canadians choosing cannabis for medical treatment and that number only expected to grow, Great-West Life announced today it has expanded its coverage of medical cannabis, including a new agreement with Shoppers Drug Mart Inc. to deliver its Medical Cannabis Coaching Program.Great-West Life is a leading Canadian insurer, focused on improving the financial, physical and mental well-being of Canadians.

"We've expanded our optional medical cannabis coverage to our Pay-Direct Drug plans which represent the vast majority of all of our drug plans, to help the financial, physical and mental well-being of Canadians," says Bobby Currie, Pharmacist and Manager of Drug Strategy for Great-West Life, noting the insurer has offered medical cannabis coverage through healthcare spending accounts since 2009.
         
"Participating plan sponsors will now be better able to support their plan members who are prescribed medical cannabis for conditions relating to multiple sclerosis, cancer, HIV or AIDS, or symptoms related to palliative care, and their plan members will be directed to Shoppers Drug Mart Inc.'s Medical Cannabis Coaching Program, delivered through its Ontario-based call centre, to help them navigate strain selection and administration," she adds.
         
Since medical cannabis is not available in retail pharmacies, Currie says the program will coordinate delivery to the plan member's home and offer case management support via check-ins, counselling, education and support by phone and e-mail.

The expansion also allows for eligible plan members in Ontario to have their claim submitted by the Medical Cannabis Coaching Program using their Pay-Direct Drug cards.

"By processing claims through a Pay-Direct Drug card, we can offer our plan members the convenience of immediate reimbursement and the most advanced claim adjudication standards in the industry," Currie says.

Great-West Life has set rigorous and comprehensive access controls to help ensure plans remain sustainable, including pre-determined conditions, a range of annual maximums capped at $5,000, coverage criteria and eligibility guidelines to help ensure appropriate use.


The Flowr Corporation, a Canadian Licensed Producer of premium cannabis products, today announced the hiring of celebrated Canadian Chef Ryan Reed to develop signature edible cannabis products for the Flowr brand. Chef Reed, a past winner of Iron Chef and Chopped and Victoria's 2011 Chef of the Year, will collaborate closely with Flowr's R&D Team to research and develop high-quality edibles. Like the brand's existing product, it is the Company's intention to target the needs of a premium client with this new line. Flowr expects that customers will be able to purchase these unique, gourmet products once launched following the anticipated legalization of edibles and infused products in Q4 2019.

"The hiring of Chef Reed complements Flowr's already significant investment in research and development," said Tom Flow, Flowr's Co-CEO. "This includes our dedicated, state-of-the-art cannabis R&D facility, a North American first, our exclusive partnership with Hawthorne Gardening Company, a subsidiary of The Scotts Company, a world leader in lawn and garden products, and the recent hiring of Deron Caplan, North America's First Cannabis Cultivation Ph.D.," said Flow.

Village Farms International, Inc. announced that it has entered into an agreement with Nature Crisp LLC to form a joint venture for the outdoor cultivation of high-CBD hemp and CBD extraction in multiple states throughout the United States.

The joint venture, Village Fields Hemp , will be 65% owned by Village Farms and 35% owned by Nature Crisp.  Nature Crisp is a private, Georgia-based farming operation and part of the Jennings agricultural group of companies, which grows a diverse range of food and other crops, including hemp, on more than 6,000 acres in the U.S. and Canada.

"Jennings Group is a pioneer in hemp cultivation and this joint venture establishes a new powerhouse in hemp cultivation that significantly advances Village Farms' vertically integrated CBD strategy," said Michael DeGiglio, Chief Executive Officer, Village Farms.  "As 10th generation farmers since Gideon (Zanini) Jennings immigrated to South Carolina in 1736, Jennings Group brings deep knowledge in large-scale field agriculture across a vast array of crops, with a proven track record of genetic optimization and innovation. Over the past several years, they have rapidly become a leading authority on hemp cultivation, renowned for their understanding of the plant and their success applying their cultural and genetic expertise to meaningfully improve CBD content and yield.  Moreover, the Jennings Group team brings extensive relationships with the farming community across the U.S., as well as with geneticists, academics and researchers, that will be invaluable to the success of this new business."

NEEKA Healthcare Canada and Canopy Growth announced a press conference to unveil their new transformative clinical research initiative in partnership with the NHL Alumni Association, a passionate advocate for improving the health and quality of life for all former NHL players.

There will be a press conference featuring Glenn Healy, Executive Director with the NHLAA and former NHL player, Dr. Amin Kassam from NEEKA Healthcare Canada, and from Canopy Growth, Dr. Mark Ware, Chief Medical Officer and Hilary Black, Chief Advocacy Officer. Additional former NHL players will also be in attendance. The conference will be held tomorrow on March 2, 2019 at 2:45 p.m. EST.
