Plus Products Looks To Take Marketshare In A Pivotal U.S. Market

Plus Products Looks To Take Marketshare In A Pivotal U.S. Market

During the last year, we have noticed a significant increase the amount of demand for cannabis infused products and are bullish on this vertical of the cannabis industry. Over the next year, we expect this trend to persist and believe that the companies that are levered to this opportunity are poised to report massive growth.

Plus Products (PLUS.CN) (PLPRF) is a company that has been benefiting from the increasing consumer demand for cannabis infused products and this is an opportunity that we have been closely following.

The last two months have been significant for the cannabis infused product company and we are bullish on the growth prospects on a going-forward basis. During this time, Plus Products announced the acquisition of California cannabis concentrate business and reported plans to expand into the Nevada market. We are favorable on the growth prospects associated with these initiatives and will monitor how the team continues to execute on this.

Las Vegas Represents a Massive Market for Plus Products

Las Vegas is one of the most important cannabis markets in the US and we are favorable on the leverage that Plus Products has to this market. On an annual basis, Las Vegas attracts more than 42 million tourists, and this has made Nevada a primetime destination for cannabis businesses. When a company is working to build a national (or global) brand, they need to be focused on several key markets. These markets are similar in the way that they attract tourists and bring the people to the brand.

In late May, Plus Products announced plans to expand into the Nevada market through a definitive agreement to partner with TapRoot Holdings, a vertically integrated cannabis company with cultivation and manufacturing facilities in Las Vegas. When it comes to selection a strategic partner, Plus Products conducts significant due diligence and believes that it can leverage TapRoot’s extraction capabilities as a part of a supply agreement. In addition to TapRoot’s extraction capabilities, it has also received 7 of the 61 newly issued retail licenses in late 2018.

Plus Products believes that TapRoot has the facilities available for the company to easily and quickly deploy its machinery, ingredients, and personnel to ensure that the product remains consistent both in California and Nevada. As the company expands into new markets, it will serve as the manufacturing operations partner to ensure quality and consistency across markets. We find this to be significant when it comes to creating a consistent product and are bullish on the growth prospects associated with this relationship.

We are favorable on the leverage that Plus Products will have to the Las Vegas opportunity and believe that it is a key market when it comes to building an internationally recognized brand. We are of the opinion that the move into Nevada is just the start of something much bigger and this is a something that we are excited about. During the last year, Plus Products has become the top selling edible in the California market (according to BDS Analytics) and we expect its products to perform very well in cannabis markets across the US.

A Company with Massive Growth Potential

Last month, Plus Products announced that it has acquired an option to purchase Emerald Bay Wellness LLC, a California-based cannabis oil manufacturer. The option grants the company the irrevocable right, but not the obligation, to purchase all of the business assets of Emerald Bay Extracts for cash and stock.

There are a number of reasons why we are excited about this transaction and will highlight this one-by-one. First, Emerald Bay Extracts is currently one of Plus’ largest suppliers of cannabis oil and has been a supply partner for over a year. Second, if the option is exercised, the acquisition would give the company in-house cannabis extraction capabilities that would both improve quality control and increase gross margins on the core edibles business, while creating a new revenue stream and new product development capabilities. Finally, this transaction will provide attractive leverage to a burgeoning opportunity in California where the market is rapidly shifting towards manufactured products that require cannabis oil.

Another reason why we are bullish on the implications that this acquisition will have on the business is due to the cost of the transaction. Approximately 70% of the deal consideration would be subject to performance targets including revenue and we find this to be significant when it comes to execution. We are favorable on the vesting schedule associated with the acquisition and believe that it could significant advance Plus Products’ business.

A Company that is in a Class of its Own

One of the reasons we are favorable on Plus Products is due to the type of investors that it has attracted. During the last year, the company has received large investments from some of the most significant hedge funds that are focused on the cannabis industry and this is a testament to the quality of the opportunity.

When it comes to Plus Products, we believe that the company is led by one of the best management teams in the business and are favorable on the additions that have been made to the team. Since inception, the management team has proven its ability to execute and we are bullish on this aspect of the story. We believe that the strength of the management team played a key role in the company’s ability to attract strategic capital and find this to be significant.

Going forward, Plus Products has massive growth prospects and this is an opportunity to be watching. The planned expansion in Nevada will prove to be a major value driver and we expect to see the company enter additional US markets in the coming months. To learn more about how Plus Products plans to be a leading cannabis infused product company, please email support@technical420.com.

Pursuant to an agreement between StoneBridge Partners LLC and PLUS Products Inc. we have been hired for a period of 180 days beginning March 21, 2019 and ending September 21, 2019 to publicly disseminate information about (PLUS) including on the Website and other media including Facebook and Twitter. We are being paid $5,000 per month (CASH) per month for services rendered. We own 106,000 shares of (PLUS), which we purchased in via private placement. We may buy or sell additional shares of (PLUS) in the open market at any time, including before, during or after the Website and Information, provide public dissemination of favorable Information. On November 1st 2018 StoneBridge Partners LLC sold 50,000 restricted shares of (PLUS) to a private investor via a direct sale.

1933 Industries Increases Extraction Capacity for Concentrates in Nevada

1933 Industries Increases Extraction Capacity for Concentrates in Nevada

1933 Industries Inc. (CSE: TGIF) (OTCQX: TGIFF), a vertically integrated cannabis consumer packaged goods company that owns licensed cultivation and manufacturing assets to support its brands, reports on its expanded cannabis extraction capabilities and provides an update regarding its hemp extraction facility.

CSE: TGIF, OTCQX: TGIFF (CNW Group/1933 Industries Inc.)

Original AMA cultivation facility to be used for expanded extraction

The Company has commenced plans to utilize its original cultivation facility to increase its extraction capacity for concentrates. Concentrates such as shatter, crumble, sugar, wax, budder, and distillate are sold under the Alternative Medicine Association (AMA) brand and are available in licensed dispensaries throughout Nevada. Distillate is considered the cleanest, clearest and purest form of concentrate and yields high THC percentages. Well-known for its top-quality concentrates, AMA extracts its distillate by using a hydrocarbon extraction process. The Company has made preparations to complete tenant improvements on the building in order to expand its concentrate production area from 483 sq. ft. to 2,215 sq. ft. in the current facility. The expected distillate production capacity will increase from 40 litres per month to 80 litres per month, in order to secure the supply for its branded products as well as for its white label partners.

Once the plants are moved to the new cultivation facility, the Company expects to submit layout plans to the city of Las Vegas for permitting and commence tenant improvements on the original cultivation facility. The necessary extraction equipment has been sourced and will also be submitted to the state for approval. The Company expects the expanded operation to come online in the fall of 2019.

“This is another exciting development for the Company as we increase production of raw materials for our line of concentrates. We are growing, expanding and investing in infrastructure for the growth of our brands,” said Ms. Ester Vigil, President of the Company.

Hemp extraction facility will be one of a kind

The Company reports that it has been working with an engineering firm to customize the equipment that will be required to establish one of Nevada’s largest hemp extraction facilities, with increased output capacity and versatility for isolation of CBD, CBN, CBG, CBC, and several other cannabinoids, including the ability to produce full spectrum and broad-spectrum oils, as well as isolates, that meet required GMP standards.

Mr. Chris Rebentisch, CEO of the Company remarked, “The process has been scaled up after a lengthy research phase, where we aimed to create a method of extraction using specialized chemistry and equipment in order to obtain a higher yield of CBD, thus increasing our efficiency. The competitive advantage of the new facility will be the isolation of not only CBD but of additional individual cannabinoids at scale, which is unique and novel in the cannabis marketplace.”

He added, “The research phase served to engineer and customize our proprietary equipment for the desired scale of the pilot plant, therefore meeting the unique needs of our business. We believe that the capital investment we are making today will have the benefits of lowering our operating and manufacturing costs, increasing cannabinoid extraction efficiency with a higher recapture rate, and bringing higher returns for years to come.”

The Company has ordered its customized equipment and is working on the final layout of the facility and will commence tenant improvements once the floor plan and layout has received approval from the city of Las Vegas. Permitting has been completed for fire and city inspections as well as H-3 hazard zoning. Because the customized equipment requires a long lead time, the Company expects that the facility will be operational by year’s end.

The facility’s processing capacity is estimated at approximately 68,000 kgs. of hemp biomass or 150,000 lbs. per month, producing approximately 5,000 kgs. of full spectrum oils or 4,500 kgs. of CBD isolate.

CannTrust Provides Update on Outdoor Cultivation and First Shipment to Australia

CannTrust Provides Update on Outdoor Cultivation and First Shipment to Australia

Today, CannTrust Holdings Inc. (“CannTrust” or the “Company”, TSX: TRST, NYSE: CTST) announced an update on its outdoor cultivation operation in British Columbia and its first shipment of capsule and dry flower products to Australia.

CannTrust Holdings Inc. (CNW Group/CannTrust Holdings Inc.)

Outdoor Cultivation Update

After closing the purchase of its first 81 acres of land in British Columbia for outdoor cannabis cultivation, CannTrust immediately invested in fencing, security, irrigation and other land preparation activities and applied for Health Canada approval to plant and cultivate on the land. Based on its estimate of yields and projected date of permitting at the time, CannTrust estimated 75,000kg of cannabis could be produced from this property in 2019. As CannTrust has yet to receive its Health Canada permit at this stage of the growing season, it is now estimated that production from this operation could range from 0 to 15,000kg in 2019, subject to the timing and receipt of regulatory approvals. A crop of up to 15,000kg is expected if planting is completed in the first half of July 2019 and yields will diminish if a crop is planted in the second half of the month. If a crop is not planted by August 5, 2019, there will be no outdoor harvest in 2019.

CannTrust expects to reach a definitive agreement for a long-term lease for an additional 160 acres in the near term and that all properties, representing over 240 acres of land, will be prepared for planting at the beginning of the growing season in 2020. Between these two properties, CannTrust continues to expect that it can produce between 100,000kg to 200,000kg of cannabis in British Columbia in 2020, subject to regulatory approvals.

“We have access to premium land in a very rich agricultural region and we remain undeterred in our long-term strategy to develop innovative cannabis products at low cost,” said Peter Aceto, Chief Executive Officer.

First Shipment to Australia

Last week, CannTrust completed its first shipment of CBD, THC and 1:1 CBD:THC vegan capsules and dry flower products to Australia. These products will be resold by its partner Cannatrek Ltd. (“Cannatrek”) to medical patients in Australia. These shipments are expected to continue until Cannatrek’s operations achieve commercial production. CannTrust now has nine products available to medical patients in Australia.

“The first steps to build CannTrust’s global footprint were established last year through partnerships in Europe and Australia.  We continue to make excellent progress with our partners in these regions as they build their operations and through our regular shipments of our award-winning products to both Denmark and Australia. We will continue taking action to establish leading positions in medical cannabis markets around the world. CannTrust is in an excellent position to increase our international business as medical and recreational cannabis continue to gain acceptance worldwide,” said Peter Aceto.

1933 Industries Moves into New Cannabis Cultivation Facility with Receipt of Occupancy Permit and Completes 5x Expansion Capacity

1933 Industries Moves into New Cannabis Cultivation Facility with Receipt of Occupancy Permit and Completes 5x Expansion Capacity

1933 Industries Inc. (the “Company” or “1933 Industries”) (CSE: TGIF) (OTCQX: TGIFF), a vertically integrated cannabis consumer packaged goods company that owns licensed cultivation and manufacturing assets to support its brands, is pleased to announce that the Company received a permanent Occupancy Permit for its cultivation facility, thereby completing the last step of the construction project initiated to expand cannabis cultivation in Las Vegas, Nevada.

1933 Industries Cultivation Facility in Las Vegas (CNW Group/1933 Industries Inc.)

“The completion of our new cultivation facility marks an incredible milestone for our Alternative Medicine Association (AMA) subsidiary”, said Company CEO Mr. Chris Rebentisch. “We are extremely pleased to be able to move into our new facility and begin operations. This is a 5x increase in flower cultivation to fuel the growth of our proprietary AMA branded products and deliver on our white label contracts. Securing a consistent supply of raw materials will have a positive effect on our margins and future revenues and will enable us to attract additional partners.”

Facility Highlights

Total Size: The 67,750 sq. ft. building is spread over two floors and is zoned as a Light Manufacturing – M-1 facility. This will be one of the largest indoor facilities in Las Vegas.

Cultivation Space: The facility was designed to house 15 bloom rooms, 3 veg rooms and 1 clone room. The initial operating canopy will be 22,100 sq. ft. with the ability to expand into another 18,000 sq. ft., if needed.

Cultivation Cycle: On average, the grow cycle is approximately 15 weeks. Once capacity is reached with all 15 flower rooms filled, the Company expects to harvest approximately 1,500 plants every 14 days for a projected 700-800 lbs. of flower per month.

Fertigation System: A Link 4 system controls mixing nutrients (mixing up to 15 different nutrients automatically) and plant watering to each room, according to a pre-defined formula, corresponding to each growth stage. The system controls HVAC, humidification and dehumidification, and oxygen levels with built-in safety alarms in each grow room.

Mr. Tim Spencer, Director of Cultivation remarked, “Link 4 integrates all the environmental systems, allowing us to track all input data points in the cultivation process. We can then drive our crops with data rather than subjective opinions and truly maximize the potential of the facility”.

Consistent Water Supply:  The facility includes a 12,000gal Reverse Osmosis Storage system. This feature is significant as the Las Vegas municipal water has a high mineral content and cultivating with clean water is essential for plant health. In addition, the volume of water stored allows the Company to mitigate the risk of a service interruption.

Plant Health and Disease Management: The HVAC System (a Daikin Variable Refrigerant Volume) multi-split air conditioner allows each room to function independently, with no duct-work built between grow rooms. Having a true “sealed” room increases Co2 levels without waste and allows for effective plant quarantining should a disease outbreak arise.

Lighting System: An eFinity 1,100w DEHPS dimmable electronic ballast – from 1,000w to 600w – provides better control of the light spectrum for each stage of the plant. Utilizing a lighting controller provides the ability to ramp up the light intensity in the morning to mimic a natural “sunrise” and slowly turn down the light towards “sunset”, thus giving the plants a more natural lighting pattern and producing the largest yields possible.

Next Steps

Upon securing the transfer of its cultivation license to the new facility, 26 plant varieties, 5,000 clones, and 200 moms will be transported to propagate the new facility and commence operations.

Blueberries Executes Definitive Agreement to Acquire Cannabis Cultivation, Processing & Manufacturing Rights for 3.2M Square Foot Property in Argentina

Blueberries Executes Definitive Agreement to Acquire Cannabis Cultivation, Processing & Manufacturing Rights for 3.2M Square Foot Property in Argentina

Further to its news releases dated March 26 and April 4, 2019, Blueberries Medical Corp. (CSE: BBM) (OTC: BBRRF) (FRA: 1OA), a leading Colombia based licensed producer of medicinal cannabis and cannabis-derived products, is pleased to announce that the Company has entered into a definitive share purchase agreement to acquire cannabis cultivation, processing, manufacturing and other rights in Argentina from BBV Labs Inc.. Pursuant to a definitive joint venture agreement with the Argentinean state-owned company Cannabis Avatara, S.E., BBV Labs entered into a joint venture with Cannava to develop and cultivate cannabis on a 3.2 million square foot (74 acres or 30 hectares) prime agricultural property. Cannava will contribute the land to the Joint Venture as well as all required permits and authorization necessary to import seeds, cultivate, grow and harvest cannabis, process cannabis and extract cannabis oil and other derivative products for scientific, medicinal and therapeutic purposes and to export cannabis and derivative products and import and export related equipment and products.

“The signing of a definitive purchase agreement marks an important milestone in our entrance to the Argentinian market,” stated Camilo Villalba, Chief Operating Officer. “Being one of the first movers to have an arrangement like this in a country with a population of over 44 million people represents an extremely unique opportunity for Blueberries. We are working diligently to expedite build-out of our operations in Argentina, in addition to our continued commitment to our ideally located, low cost production operations in Colombia.”

“This agreement moves us another step closer to bringing this project to fruition, pioneering commercial cannabis production in Argentina,” stated Gaston Morales, the President of Cannava. “The Blueberries team have proven to be valuable partners, contributing leading operational expertise in cultivation, genetics, extraction and formulation. We look forward to continuing to work with them to move this exciting project forward.”

Highlights Include:

  • Blueberries gains rights to cannabis licenses in Argentina; amongst very few such agreements currently in place to supply cannabis products to the Argentinian population exceeding 44 million people. Also expands production footprint internationally and may provide additional export opportunities to other countries with evolving cannabis regulations.
  • Blueberries to build a large-scale modern cultivation facility and processing centre of excellence in Argentina.
  • Cannava will contribute all licenses/permits and authorization necessary to import seeds, cultivate, grow and harvest cannabis, process cannabis, extract cannabis oil and other derivative products, export cannabis and derivative products, and import/export equipment and products.
  • Cannava will grant access to utilize 3.2 million square feet (74 Acres or 30 hectares) of prime agricultural land for the cultivation and growth of cannabis in Jujuy Province, Argentina, ideally situated in an area with robust modern infrastructure including fresh water and modern power supply and a nearby airport, with additional land available for potential future expansion
  • Cannava will contribute all cooperation agreements with the National Institute of Agricultural Technology (INTA), Ministry of Security, Ministry of Public Health, National Council of Scientific and Technological Investigations (CONICET) and other regulatory and technological Argentinian authorities as required

Argentina’s relatively nascent cannabis industry began in 2017 with the legalization of cannabis for prescribed medical use. To date Cannava is the only entity authorized to cultivate and produce cannabis and derivatives in Argentina and Blueberries is among the first and limited number of companies to have such an arrangement with Cannava.

The 3.2 million square foot site is located on agricultural property in the province of Jujuy. The area is located in an ideal, temperate climate that permits year-round cultivation as well as a skilled and efficient agricultural labor force. The area is an established agricultural site with an operating history of over 100 years. The property is fed by multiple rivers providing ample access to fresh water for irrigation. The power supply is modern and has capacity to scale as production capacity is increased. With an international airport only 8km away, it is also as an ideal hub for import and export. The recent authorization of the site as Argentina’s first, and potentially on of the world’s largest cannabis farm and is expected to pave the way for a new industry in Argentina.

The first phase of the Joint Venture will be a Pilot Cultivation Program consisting of the preparation and cultivation of cannabis on a 107,000 square foot (1 hectare) area on public lands provided by Cannava with the goal of potentially producing 4 million grams (4,000 kg) of dry cannabis flower. The Pilot Project will also evaluate and characterize cannabis seeds and strains that are ideal for the climate conditions of Jujuy, and document the proposed operating procedures, technical processes, strains and products that the Joint Venture is seeking to produce. The Company has prepared a proposed Pilot Project plan for Cannava’s approval and processing of the applications for the permits as required, with the goal of completing the Pilot Program by May 2020.

Terms of the Transaction

Pursuant to the terms of the Share Purchase Agreement, Blueberries will acquire BBV Labs, and in turn, 75% of BBV Labs’ rights under the Joint-Venture with Cannava. As consideration for its interest, Blueberries will issue 16,000,000 common shares to the vendors of BBV Labs. Closing of the transaction is expected to occur in July.

Pursuant to the Joint Venture Agreement, proceeds from the manufacture and distribution activities, and from the cultivation and growth activities, will be distributed between BBV Labs (to be acquired by Blueberries) and Cannava, . Blueberries will be responsible for providing the expertise and capital required to operate and develop the Joint Venture operation. The Share Purchase Agreement was negotiated at arm’s length.
