Point Roberts WA, Delta BC – March 28, 2019 - Investorideas.com, a leading investor news resource covering hemp and cannabis stocks releases a snapshot looking at how, as CBD gains momentum in the US, companies are eyeing the next potential markets; mainly south of the border in Mexico and South America.

In November 2018, Mexico announced approval for the importation and sale of cannabis products at pharmacies and retailers across the country to service the Mexican population of 130+ million.  Sixty product licenses have been initially approved by the COFEPRIS thus far, and it is expected this decision will make cannabis products like hemp-derived CBD available on the shelves of general retailers across the nation.

CannaOne Technologies (CSE: CNNA), a company that develops and markets various digital tools to service various segments for the cannabis industry in Canada, with its flagship product BloomKit, is taking advantage of this new southern market potential. The company recently announced entering into a formal agreement with Manna Health Services SA de CV of Mexico City, to undertake the development, launch, and operation of an industry-leading, online CBD product purchase and delivery marketplace for the Country of Mexico. The agreement was signed on March 5, 2019, with a contract term of 36 months and an option to renew for an additional 60 months at the conclusion of the initial period.


"BloomKit, our enterprise software solution, will give Manna the capability to offer a flagship and fully operational online CBD marketplace once Mexican regulations are finalized. For example, it will offer Manna the ability to inherently monitor and track pick-up and delivery logistics, and the capability to deliver historical and current trending analytics to ensure optimal management of all CBD sales channels. It will provide this all with the benefit of a simple and easy to use built-in eCommerce solution."

Currently, Manna Health is approved by the Mexican government to buy, sell, lease, distribute, import, or export any products related to health and wellness. Once this CBD marketplace has launched, Manna has further committed to CannaOne to jointly study, analyze and utilize all market and consumer data that is collected and retained through the marketplace."

CANNAMERICA BRANDS CORP. (CSE: CANA) (OTCQB: CNNXF) is also looking into Mexico for CBD, having announced that it has entered into a binding letter of intent to create a joint venture with Sericea Labs S.A. de C.V. and CBDistribution Company Ltd., with the intention of building a facility in Mexico for importing and warehousing licensed CBD products as well as CBD oils and tinctures destined for refining.

When and if permitted under Mexican laws, the Company, SERICEA and CBDC also plan on acquiring, importing and cultivating industrial hemp biomass for extraction into CBD isolate to be used for multiple product lines which utilize CBD. Subject to Board approval from the Company and completion of satisfactory due diligence, the JV Parties intend to enter into a definitive joint venture agreement on or before April 30, 2019.

Khiron Life Sciences Corp. (TSXV: KHRN) (OTCQB: KHRNF), a vertically integrated cannabis leader is focused not only on Mexico, but all of Latin America, having recently announced participating in Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna, which took place March 14-17 in Bologna, Italy.

Kuida®, the first consumer brand for Khiron's wellness unit, brings the benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) to a comprehensive portfolio of skin and body care products for women. Launched in Colombia in October 2018 through retail, wholesale and online channels, Kuida® will now target the global skincare market which, according to Euromonitor International is expected to reach US$131 Billion in 2019.

SOL Global Investments Corp. (CSE: SOL) (OTCQB: SOLCF) also put a focus on international CBD in February, when the company announced the formation of a new international hemp-focused subsidiary, Heavenly Rx Ltd.

From the news:
"We are launching Heavenly Rx with the aim of acquiring a portfolio of battle-tested and proven hemp/CBD companies while also acquiring certain unique brands for which we believe CBD and hemp-infused products could drastically change their growth," added SOL's chief investment officer Andy DeFrancesco. "We are more bullish than ever about the future of the hemp and CBD industries globally, and Heavenly Rx will without a doubt be the vertically integrated leader in the space. Heavenly Rx is not simply an investment company, but rather a laser-focused global Hemp and CBD company only for all operations under the Heavenly Rx banner."

CBD is already on the tip of everyone’s tongue in the US at the moment and it seems this “hype” is extending outward into the Latin American community and Europe. The import/export of US CBD is expected to take off in 2019, and companies looking South and East could gain a sizeable advantage due to the massive consumer populations available.

The #CBD Wave is Coming: How Companies are Prepared to Meet Market Demand: (NASDAQ: $VFF) (OTC: $HIPH) (OTCQB: $SOLCF) (CSE: $LOVE.C)

The #CBD Wave is Coming: How Companies are Prepared to Meet Market Demand: (NASDAQ: $VFF) (OTC: $HIPH) (OTCQB: $SOLCF) (CSE: $LOVE.C)



Point Roberts WA, Delta BC – March 28, 2019 - Investorideas.com, a leading investor news resource covering hemp and cannabis stocks releases a snapshot focusing on the rise of CBD within the overall cannabis market in the US and internationally, and how companies are preparing to deal with this explosive market.

With the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill in the US, CBD represents a developing sector with many vendors now seeking national reach to US customers. The rise in popularity for CBD products is driven by consumers seeking natural-based health & wellness solutions to treat various ailments; from inflammation, to anxiety and insomnia amongst many others. As a result, the hemp-derived CBD market has been estimated to reach US $22 billion by 2022.


One of the larger companies in the CBD space, Village Farms International, Inc. (TSX: VFF) (NASDAQ: VFF) recently applauded the actions of the Texas Department of Health and Human Services in de-scheduling hemp, including its cannabinoids (except for delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in compliance with the 2018 Farm Act and Texas law.  Under Texas law, the removal of hemp from the controlled substances schedule will be effective on April 5, 2019, 21 days after the schedule's publication. Texas still must pass a hemp bill to enable the creation of a State Hemp Plan under the 2018 Farm Act and develop a thoughtful regulatory regime to support the hemp industry and protect consumers.

With more CBD markets opening up, American Premium Water Corporation (OTC: HIPH), a diversified luxury consumer products company focused on businesses in the health and beauty and biotech sectors, recently announced that it has engaged A&R Opportunity to manage and fund a national sales team based out of Northeast Ohio that will help market and sell the Company’s products nationwide. The arrangement was necessitated by overwhelming demand for the Company’s products, including its LALPINA CBD beverage and CBD topical products from its most recent acquisition of plant + body essentials.  
         
CEO of American Premium Water Corporation, Ryan Fishoff commented, “I am pleased to announce we have engaged with A&R to help oversee the Company’s national sales strategy. The inbound demand has been overwhelmingly strong and it became apparent over the past few weeks that the Company needed more assistance in managing and servicing sales accounts. Their location in Northeast Ohio also provides us with a presence in the Midwest, an area that we have not been focusing on, but over the past few months became clear to the Company was an area that needed to be addressed with burgeoning demand for CBD products. The terms of the agreement were also very favorable to the Company, as it is performance based, so all party’s incentives are aligned. This will be beneficial for the Company going forward as we look to continue to expand our distribution footprint nationwide and rollout new products in the coming months.” 

The non-alcoholic beverage marketplace is estimated to generate revenue of approximately USD$1.2 trillion by 2023, according to Markets and Research analysis. Companies employing innovative marketing strategies, more flavor choices, and the use of natural, high-quality ingredients will continue to drive market growth in the category.

This may explain why SOL Global Investments Corp. (CSE: SOL) (OTCQB: SOLCFjust announced its investment in leading premium soda-maker Jones Soda Co.

SOL Global's total investment represents approximately 8.19% of the total issued and outstanding common shares of Jones Soda which, based on publicly available information, makes it the company's largest stockholder. SOL Global has filed a Schedule 13D with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission describing its investment in Jones Soda.

Cannara Biotech Inc. (CSE: LOVE) is also looking into marketing and distribution for CBD, having recently announced that its subsidiary, Global shopCBD.com Inc. has closed private rounds of financing for aggregate proceeds of $8,865,849.15. 

From the news: "As the hemp CBD consumer markets continue to evolve, what is increasingly clear is the health and wellness segment is becoming more prominent," said Zohar Krivorot, President and CEO of Global shopCBD.com. "The high level of investor interest in participating in shopCBD.com underscores the potential of both CBD products overall and moreover, a best-in-class online platform to serve this market." 

There can be no doubt that the CBD sector is about to take off as consumers wait impatiently for products to become available, but is the industry properly prepared? As we saw with recreational cannabis in Canada, many companies are likely to be unprepared to keep up with supply, but there are numerous companies like the ones above heeding the warning signs and taking the proper preemptive actions to ensure they are ready when the CBD flood gates open.

Canopy Growth Corporation welcomed Houseplant, a new brand of Canadian cannabis, to the Canopy Growth family today. Founded by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, Houseplant represents years of product expertise and an unmatched attention to detail within each strain that has been carefully selected and grown. 

Commitment to cannabis quality begins with selecting the best genetics and doesn't stop until the customer opens the jar. Canopy Growth has witnessed how carefully Houseplant has chosen each component of their offering to deliver the highest quality product to Canadians.
         
Under the terms of the partnership, Houseplant will lean on the production and distribution capabilities of Canopy Growth and its licensed subsidiaries to ensure an ample supply of Houseplant flower, Softgel, and pre-rolled formats are rolled out in Canada over the coming months. Through a minority ownership in the new business venture, Canopy Growth will help Houseplant scale quickly and support Houseplant's long-term success.
         
Canopy Growth has worked closely with Houseplant for almost two years and the entire Canopy Growth team is deeply impressed by their understanding of the cannabis consumer, attention to detail, and hands-on approach to this new partnership. "We could not be more excited to partner with Seth, Evan and the entire Houseplant team. Together we will make Houseplant a cannabis brand synonymous with quality everywhere it is available," said Mark Zekulin, President and Co-CEO of Canopy Growth.

Abacus Health Products, Inc., the company offering CBDMEDIC, the first family of topical medications combining active pharmaceutical ingredients with hemp extract and other natural moisturizers, has announced the national launch of 10 over-the-counter (OTC) pain relief products. CBDMEDIC's innovative formula is built on 15 years of pharmaceutical research and development.

CBDMEDIC products are available across the U.S., including select CVS locations, regional and independent pharmacies including Hartig Drug and will soon be available in a growing number of grocery chains and natural product retailers. The products are also available for purchase online.
"CBDMEDIC products were developed to bring superior relief to the millions of Americans in pain," said Perry Antelman, CEO of Abacus Health Products, which developed and distributes CBDMEDIC. "The products conform to federal requirements for OTC topical medications and, according to health care practitioners that have provided the Company's technology to their patients, are highly effective, as reported by healthcare practitioners nationwide*. These are groundbreaking medications, and we look forward to helping millions of Americans in pain."

CannaRoyalty Corp. d/b/a Origin House, a North American cannabis products and brands company today announced that the Company's California distribution division, Continuum, has entered into a distribution agreement with Humboldt Sun Growers Guild, to be the exclusive distributor of Papa's Herb™-branded products in California.

Pursuant to the Agreement, effective March 25, 2019, Origin House's distribution division, Continuum will be the exclusive distributor of all Papa's Herb™ products in California. Papa's Herb™ was founded in California in early 2018, and is backed by the Serruya Family, who have a proven track record of building dozens of retail brands within the consumer packaged goods business, over three decades.

Commenting on the Agreement, Afzal Hasan, President and General Counsel at Origin House said, "Papa's Herb™ is a truly unique brand that has come to stand for high-quality, value-focused cannabis products while remaining equally committed to sustainability and the community. We are pleased to partner with yet another authentic California cannabis brand to take on an important and growing segment in the California market. This Agreement aligns with and advances our stated strategy of becoming a preeminent global house of experiential brands by expanding our growing portfolio of California brands, while helping preserve Humboldt County's cannabis legacy and shaping its future. We look forward to broadening our relationship with Papa's Herb™ through our Brand Accelerator Program and supporting their growth through our state-wide distribution footprint and key retailer relationships."

Geyser Brands Inc, after initiating its first cannabis cultivation in January of this year, has  successfully brought in a healthy full harvest. This establishes the first revenues out of the cultivation license that was granted October 16, 2018.

The facility was also recently audited by Health Canada, which approved Geyser Brands' Licensed Producer compliance with the Health Canada standards. This approval allows the company to move forward to the next steps in receiving its processing and sales license, which will then allow the Company to extend their products and brands into the regulated Canadian cannabis market and direct to consumer medical market.

Geyser Brands LP will continue to pursue its mandate to invest into the research and development of unique high-quality proprietary strains and technologies that target specific health related conditions such as pain and inflammation reduction, insomnia, digestive issues and other commonly known ailments.
