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.
Today's podcast is sponsored by Cannabis Suisse Corp. (OTC: CSUI ), a fully licensed cannabis cultivation and distribution company in Switzerland, for recreational tobacco products and medical CBD oils. The Company's facilities for producing cannabis are based in Dietikon, Switzerland, and contain the art surveillance equipment to enable an around the clock webcast. Cannabis Suisse grows high quality, organic cannabis with sustainable, all-natural principles. The Company's products are laboratory tested to ensure the end users have access to a standardized, safe and consistent product. Cannabis Suisse proprietary trademarked MoldStandard is a quantitative microbiology method for analyzing yeast and mold counts in harvested cannabis plants. Cannabis Suisse proprietary trademarked CannaMec is a method for quantifying and removing residual solvents during packaging and storage of CBD products. Cannabis Suisse Corp. currently sells via a distribution network of Swiss retailers and online shops, under the retail brand Alpine Cannabis.
In today's podcast we look at a few public and private company announcements.
Hyasynth, a sustainable biotechnology company, announced taking the top spot from global competitors by making the first ever sale of cannabidiol (CBD) produced and extracted from yeast. Hyasynth produces CBD through a yeast fermentation process, without the need for traditional cultivation and extraction from cannabis or hemp plants. The material was produced using Hyasynth's proprietary yeast under contract by a fermentation partner. This production marks a key commercialization achievement and positions the company to move towards large scale commercial manufacturing.
Hyasynth was among the first companies to specialize in cannabinoid production by fermentation, also called cellular agriculture or biosynthesis - a field that has seen more than $500 million in investments over the last three years. Cannabinoids that are produced this way are expected to provide huge benefits in cost, quality and sustainability versus traditional plant cultivation and extraction. Hyasynth's platform allows it to produce CBD, one of only two natural cannabinoids in clinically proven products. The company's primary competitors have recently announced work on CBG, the precursor to CBD, which is easier to make but lacks an established market.
Hyasynth's fermentation process takes less than one week to complete, making it 12 times faster than production by cannabis or hemp plants. Fermentation is a traditional manufacturing process for pharmaceutical, food and cosmetic products. A widely known example of this process is the production of insulin by bacteria. Unlike other production methods, fermentation results in natural, bio-based products and final ingredients that are pesticide and GMO-free. Hyasynth's technology can be scaled through partnerships with fermentation facilities that already exist worldwide. With these product features, Hyasynth is set to reshape the industry for major cannabinoids, like THC and CBD, and rare cannabinoids that are found in very low levels in cannabis and hemp plants.
While an increasing number of medical researchers and consumers are finding benefits from CBD, many CBD suppliers and products have recently been warned by regulatory agencies for listing false information on the quantity of CBD and type of ingredients in their products. Hyasynth's technology provides a reliable option for the global supply chain.
"Our head start in this area was a key factor in us being the first to reach commercial sale of CBD and CBDa produced from a reliable and sustainable source." said Kevin Chen, CEO of Hyasynth. "We've assembled an excellent team of researchers, built an IP portfolio across many cannabinoids, and our production & sale achievement is one of the last checkpoints before we make our solution available worldwide." The company is in the process of scaling up its CBD and CBDa production process to industrial volumes and aims to deliver scaled production in 2021.
The Valens Company Inc. (TSX: VLNS) (OTCQX: VLNCF) announced the launch of a new higher potency cannabis-infused beverage, Summit 10, under a white label agreement with A1 Cannabis Company (a subsidiary of Iconic Brewing).
Summit 10, a lemonade iced tea containing 10mg of THC, is the third addition to The Valens Company and A1's line of cannabis-infused beverages. Available in a 355ml bottle, Summit 10 differentiates from the previously released 2.5mg THC-infused Summit beverage, with a flavour profile of citrus and black tea and a higher potency level. Summit 10 was developed using SōRSE by Valens emulsion technology and is designed for consumers seeking a higher dosage product with faster observed onset times and reduced offset times, housed in a resealable bottle for convenient and controlled consumption.
Earlier this year, The Valens Company introduced its first line of cannabis infused beverages in partnership with A1 Cannabis - Basecamp, a CBD-forward iced tea, and Summit, a THC-forward citrus-flavoured water. Both have quickly gained popularity in the Canadian cannabis-infused beverage market, receiving acclaim for their differentiated taste and customizable dosing from the industry and consumers alike.
"As an anticipated addition to A1's cannabis-infused beverage line, we bring Summit 10 to the Canadian market, a reimagined THC-forward formulation with more potency and differentiated taste, but with the same quality consumers have come to favour in Summit," said Tyler Robson, Chief Executive Officer of The Valens Company. "As the Canadian cannabis-infused beverage market matures, it is our commitment to continue to innovate and differentiate for our partners using SōRSE by Valens, but also reinvent trusted products that offer customizable experiences in various potency levels and taste profiles to meet a wide range of consumer preferences. We are thrilled to launch Summit 10 as part of our continued collaboration with A1 Cannabis to introduce new products and increase our collective market share in the rapidly growing beverage segment in Canada."
Summit 10 is expected to first launch in mid-October in Alberta online and at select retailers, with British Columbia and Ontario to follow shortly after. The Valens Company and A1 Cannabis also expect to release a zero sugar Summit 10 beverage this fall.
Indiva Limited (TSXV:NDVA) (OTCQX:NDVAF), the parent company of Indiva Inc., a leading Canadian producer of cannabis edibles and other cannabis products, announced that the first three flavours of Wana Sour Gummies have shipped to Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Yukon Territory. Mango Sativa (5 mg THC per gummie), Watermelon Hybrid (5 mg THC per gummie), and Strawberry Lemonade 1:1 (5 mg THC, 5 mg CBD per gummie) are expected to be in stores this week.
"We're thrilled to have shipped Wana Sour Gummies to Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Yukon Territory, increasing Wana's presence to four provinces and one territory," said Niel Marotta, President and Chief Executive Officer of Indiva. "In less than a month since Wana Sour Gummies were launched, we've seen a steady growth in popularity for these vegan and gluten-free cannabis edibles. Of-age Canadians across the country are experiencing first-hand why Wana Brands is the No. 1 edibles brand in the United States."
Wana Sour Gummies are made with pectin, not gelatin, which gives the gummies a great texture in addition to making them vegan. All gummies are handcrafted using a shelf-stable recipe so they won't melt. Following the first three flavours that have been released, the Company intends to bring these additional flavours to market later in 2020:
- Blueberry Indica (5 mg THC per gummie)
- Strawberry 10:1 (10 mg CBD, 1 mg THC per gummie)
- Japanese Citrus Yuzu 2:1 (10 mg CBD, 5 mg THC per gummie)
- Pomegranate Blueberry Acai 5:1 (25 mg CBD, 5 mg THC per gummie)
Wana Brands is the No. 1 edibles brand in the United States, with more dollars sold than any other brand, according to BDSA 2019 Brand Share Report.
ANC Inc, Alberta's first licensed micro cultivator, announced the continuation of their national expansion with approval to supply seeds for the commercial and home grower in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario and most recently, New Brunswick.
"Since 2017, ANC Cannabis has been forming a company built around the belief that we can create quality product that is accessible to everyone while also providing educational support and services to our consumers," said Tairance Rutter, ANC Inc.'s VP Business Development and Marketing. Adding, "At ANC we are motivated by a passion for quality product and support for the entire growing and cultivation community. We believe that everyone, no matter their background or experience, should be able to grow their own quality cannabis plants."
ANC is first and foremost a genetics company committed to developing the highest quality products possible. ANC is currently focused on seeds for the consumer and commercial market, with plans to release flower for retail sale in the late fall of 2020. The company has been approved for a processing licence so they can process their own product. The company has additional long-term plans to sell flower, likely in the form of pre-rolls sourced from the genetics they will be offering consumers as seed stock. This approach will allow consumers to experience the product before deciding on a cultivar. This will be part of a larger program the company calls the "Know Before You Grow" service, which will also include access to an online platform offering genetics-specific tips for home growers. ANC Inc's VP of Research and Quality Control, Thomas Facciolo, is excited to provide answers for all our home growers' questions.
"ANC continues to expand at a rapid pace, and we are elated to have reached the milestone of national distribution, spanning across Canada, from the West Coast in British Columbia to the East Coast in New Brunswick," said ANC Inc President, Clayton Bordeniuk. Adding, "this is just the beginning for ANC."
ANC has developed hundreds of different genetics that are ready for the recreational market including Fruity Hoops, Pink Lemonade, Pineapple Express, Power Kush, Triple Scoop, Bubba Kush 2.5, Chocolate Cake, Double Chocolate, 34 ST Cookies, Bubba Cheese and Sorbet 33. Each strain offers a different genetic make up, with a wide range of THC concentration, and different flowering periods, appropriate for a variety of climates for indoor and outdoor growers alike.
