8 Small Cap #Cannabis Companies That Will Lead The Next Growth Cycle For The $97 Billion Market By 2026 $AVCN.ca $CBDT.ca $HBOR.ca $HOLL.ca $INNO.ca $SPDR.ca $TBI.ca $TCAN.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 3:39 PM on Thursday, October 8th, 2020

Despite the collapse of marijuana and cannabis related stocks in the last 18 months, there is no denying that Cannabis related products are going to go through a paradigm shifting, parabolic growth stage around the world over this decade for the following reasons:

  1. Cannabis legalization is gaining momentum around the world.
  2. Momentum is primarily driven by the realization that cannabis may have a range of medicinal, therapeutic and wellness applications.
  3. It is the most widely cultivated, consumed and trafficked drug worldwide (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime).

So what is this going to translate into?

The global cannabis market size was valued at $US 10.6 Billion in 2018 and is projected to reach $97.5 Billion by the end of 2026, a CAGR of 32.92% (Fortune Business Insights)

WHY WILL THIS TIME BE DIFFERENT?

Big promises, big IR budgets, big hype …. Big Letdown.

That pretty much sums up the last cycle of Cannabis related companies that focused on speed, stories and stock prices rather than the one simple but important thing they should have been doing – building a real business.

Investors will remember that the same thing happened during the dot-com era.  As with the cannabis collapse over the last 18 months, what followed back in 2000 was a long period of mourning in which many investors had sworn off tech stocks, just as they have with cannabis stocks today.

But it wasn’t long until tech investors dusted themselves off and realized tech was here to stay – but this time they were only going to focus on real companies with real businesses.  What we got was Amazon, Google, Linkedin, Facebook and then the rest was history.

The same thing is about to happen to the Cannabis sector

Meet the 8 new horsemen of the next leadership group that are firing on all cylinders (in alphabetical order).

Avicanna (AVCN :TSX) (AVCN : OTCQX) ( 0NN: FSE) is a vertically-integrated biopharmaceutical company developing and commercializing various cannabinoid-based products for the global marketplace.

When we say vertically integrated, we mean it. Avicanna has 4 fully operating divisions to address the entire market for Cannabis products as follows:

1.  The company has a full line of high end CBD based skin care products serving the consumer retail segment with Canadian distribution through Medical Cannabis by Shoppers, as well as global distribution later this year.  These are the only known CBD cosmetics backed by clinical trials.

2.  Avicanna’s superior medical cannabis line also features products distributed through Medical Cannabis by Shoppers, the online arm of Canada’s largest drugstore chain. In addition, the company recently received certification and authorization for the sale of pharmaceutical cannabinoid products with medical prescriptions in Colombia.

3.  Avicanna also hosts a full pipeline of Pharmaceuticals in various stages of trials to address Dermatology, Psychiatry, Neurology, Pain and Oncology. Three of the company’s products are already as far as phase 2.

AND… if that is not enough …

4.  Avicanna’s Colombian cultivation division hosts 500,000 Sq ft of low cost and USDA certified organic Cannabis Cultivation. The company recently Made History As The First Ever Export Of Feminized Hemp Seeds From Colombia To The United States. 7,000,000 Seeds For $380,000, with an additional 75,000,000 Seeds Available For Export In Several Pending Transactions.

Empower (CBDT: CSE) (EPWCF:OTCQB) (8EC:Frankfurt) is a vertically integrated, multi-state operator of medical clinics with a database of over 165,000 patients, a database that almost every medical cannabis and CBD company would kill for … but then these numbers recently came in for the first two quarters to further cement Empower as a leader:

PatientVisits

  • Q1 + 377% To 5,717
  • Q2 + 56% To 6,696

Revenues $USD

  • Q1 + 416% To $790,000 (NO COVID)
  • Q2 + 56% To $923.000

TOTAL Q1 AND Q2

  • REVENUE                 $1.7M vs $745K         = + 130%
  • PATIENTS                 12,400 vs 5,500           = + 125%
  • NET LOSS                 $920K vs 1.85M         = – 50% 

Empower has now delivered growth in 4 successive financial reports (Q4, FY 2019, Q1 and Q2), so it is safe to say that superstar CEO Steve McAuley can officially claim victory on the turnaround he inherited in 2019. 

BONUS – The Company’s physician staffed clinics have are also generating significant revenue and growth from the COVID-19 pandemic as follows: 

  • Increased CBD treatments from patients suffering increased anxiety;
  • Testing for individuals and families
  • Testing for local businesses and employees 
  • Testing for enterprise level organizations across the country 
  • Acquisition of an 8,000 sq ft lab in Dallas that can process 4,000 COVID-19 tests per day
    • At the lowest price of $USD 80 per test and operating on just 1,000 tests per day, the clinic would deliver $USD 80,000 in revenue PER DAY

Oh, and did we mention that CEO Steven McAuley is Six Sigma certified under the quality initiative of legendary GE (General Electric) Chairman Jack Welch? We’ve never seen a Six Sigma certified CEO in the Canadian small cap markets. Never.  Which explains how McAuley has been able to guide Empower Clinics through the most disruptive retail environment in recent history and turn it into significant growth.

Sweet Earth’s offerings are Leaping Bunny-certified, the gold-standard in cruelty-free certification for consumer goods signifying no new animal tests were conducted during product development.

“We are thrilled to be working with Sweet Earth, a renowned company whose sophisticated hemp-CBD offerings have long been celebrated,” said Thoughtful Brands CEO Ryan Dean Hoggan. “We are eager to propel the success of their CBD canine products by utilizing our global eCommerce platform and enhanced technology capabilities. We look forward to adding the brand to our portfolio and are hopeful for additional collaborations in the future.”

Building off the success of Nature’s Exclusive and the supply agreement with Sweet Earth, Thoughtful Brands is continuing to expand its portfolio in the nutraceutical and hemp-based CBD product space through the August 2020 acquisition of Golden Path LLC and Wild Mariposa LLC, two direct-to-consumer eCommerce brands offering natural health products throughout the U.S.

Sweet Earth’s CEO, Peter Espig, commented, “We are very excited to work closely with Thoughtful Brands, a company that we feel maintains the hemp industry’s premier brands. The company is well managed, maintains a powerful global platform and enhanced technological capabilities, and constantly researches for new methods of increasing customer service. We look forward to adding our products to Thoughtful Brand’s rapidly growing eCommerce platform, and are hopeful for future collaborations.”

In addition to the above, the Company announces the resignation of Szascha Lim as Chief Financial Officer. The role will be fulfilled once the appropriate person is found.

  • Agreement paves the way for Thoughtful Brands to become vertically integrated and subsequently reduce operating costs while expanding sales

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / September 21, 2020 / Thoughtful Brands Inc. (CSE:TBI)(FSE:1WZ1)(OTCQB:PEMTF) (the “Company” or “Thoughtful Brands“), a global natural health products and eCommerce technology company, is pleased to announce that it has signed a binding term sheet to acquire (the “Proposed Acquisition“) all of the issued and outstanding shares, or all of the assets of, Kentucky-based hemp extraction company American CBD Extraction Corp. (“American CBD“). The Proposed Acquisition is expected to set the stage for Thoughtful Brands to become a fully vertically-integrated CBD company, controlling each aspect of the supply chain, including production, logistics and value chain.

Upon completion of the Proposed Acquisition, the Company will acquire an abundance of hemp biomass along with a fully equipped 41,000 square foot facility with the ability to process more than 1,200 pounds of hemp per day once licensed. Upon completion, Thoughtful Brands would also be able to utilize American CBD’s technological and scientific expertise to enhance the formulations of the Company’s various direct-to-consumer CBD brands, which include Nature’s Exclusive, Sativida and the recently acquired Golden Path and Wild Mariposa. Additionally, the Company plans to sell American CBD’s hemp biomass to support operations in Europe and to other clients worldwide.

“The term sheet with American CBD is an important milestone for the Company because it increases the likelihood of expanded margins and will allow us to launch innovative new products for which we control every step of the process,” said Thoughtful Brands CEO Ryan Hoggan. “Once we’re able to work directly with the team at American CBD and within their state-of-the-art Kentucky facility, we expect to be able to fine-tune and advance our cannabinoid product portfolio.”

Acquisition Details

The Company proposes to acquire all of the issued and outstanding share capital of, or all of the assets of, American CBD in consideration for Cdn$11,000,000, which will be satisfied through the issuance of common shares of the Company (the “Consideration Shares“). The Consideration Shares will be issued to the existing shareholders of American CBD or, in the case of an asset acquisition, directly to American CBD, at a deemed price equivalent to the lesser of (a) Cdn$0.18 per share or (b) the five-day volume-weighted average closing price of the Company’s common shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange for the period preceding closing of the Proposed Acquisition. The Consideration Shares shall be paid upfront and subject to an escrow arrangement, from which 25% of the Consideration Shares will be released on the closing date of the Proposed Acquisition, followed by an additional 25% after each subsequent 90-day period.

In addition to the Consideration Shares, a bonus of Cdn$1,000,000 will be paid to the operating team of American CBD on closing and a Cdn$2,000,000 performance milestone payment will be paid to the operating team of American CBD upon the achievement of production and cumulative online sales of over USD$1,000,000. The bonus and milestone shares will be payable in common shares of the Company based on the five-day volume weighted average closing price of the Company’s shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange immediately prior to the bonus and milestone payments becoming payable.

Closing of the Proposed Acquisition is subject to American CBD: (a) having a minimum cash balance of Cdn$2,000,000, less closing costs related to the Proposed Acquisition (which are not exceed Cdn$40,000); (b) having no debts or liabilities; and (c) having been granted a seat on the Company’s board of directors, all on the closing of the Proposed Acquisition.

The Company is at arms-length from American CBD and its shareholders. The transaction will not constitute a fundamental change for the Company, nor is it expected to result in a change of control of the Company, within the meaning of applicable securities laws and the policies of the Canadian Securities Exchange.

Readers are cautioned that the final terms and structure for a transaction between the Company and American CBD have not yet been determined. Completion of any transaction remains subject to negotiation of definitive documentation and satisfaction of conditions set forth above, as well as customary closing conditions for a transaction of this nature. The Proposed Acquisition cannot be completed until these conditions are satisfied. The Company will provide additional information regarding the Proposed Acquisition as soon as it becomes available.

  • An eCommerce company specializing in natural health products chronicles latest revenue, strategic acquisitions and partnerships, expansion and trajectory
  • During a period of three months that ended June 30, 2020, the Company recorded revenue of $12,842,934

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / September 4, 2020 / Global natural health products and eCommerce technology company Thoughtful Brands Inc. (CSE:TBI)(FSE:1WZ1)(OTCQB:PEMTF) (the “Company” or “Thoughtful Brands“), which recently changed its name from Mota Ventures Corp. to better reflect the Company’s long-term growth strategy, is proud to announce its second quarter 2020 earnings results, as reported on August 31, 2020.

During a period of three months that ended June 30, 2020, the Company recorded revenue of $12,842,934, which was primarily due to the operations and strong sales performances of the Nature’s Exclusive CBD brand, whose product line led to a major sales boost amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Cost of goods sold amounted to $11,293,727 during the three months ended June 30, 2020. Cost of goods sold included costs for product fulfillment, as well as eCommerce campaign costs including customer acquisition. Revenues grew by 68% in the second quarter. Customers acquired for the twelve months ended June 30, 2020 reached 202,564 up from 44,207 compared with the twelve months ended June 30, 2019. Gross margin in Q2 2020 increased to 12%, as compared to gross margin in Q1 2020 of 8%, due to increased efficiencies in operations and increased customer acquisition due to online marketing campaigns in the current period.

“The Thoughtful Brands team would like to emphasize the Company’s commitment to its partners, the integral role of supply chain across its businesses, and its unrelenting effort to provide the best possible experience for its customers,” said CEO Ryan Hoggan. “Each of the ventures outlined below is part of our broader expansion plan and we’re looking forward to the remainder of 2020 and beyond.”

Key Highlights for the six months ended June 30, 2020

Financing

In April 2020, the Company completed a non-brokered private placement for gross proceeds of $4.5 million.

Acquisitions & Joint Ventures

On June 1, 2020 the Company completed its acquisition of Verrian, which owns and operates a 110,000 square foot pharmaceutical manufacturing facility in Radebuel, Germany. Operations within this full suite pharmaceutical manufacturing site include analytical laboratory and finished dose manufacturing, which exceed all international quality standards. The facility and equipment of Verrian have been independently appraised at Cdn$10,600,000 and include an analytical laboratory and full pharmaceutical manufacturing suite. Verrian also specializes in the development of psychedelic-derived medicines with the goal of formulating treatments for addictions-including opioids and alcohol. The move propelled Thoughtful Brands into the burgeoning psychedelic market and supports the Company’s forays into the natural health sector beyond the cannabidiol (“CBD“) market.

On April 7, 2020 the Company acquired a 20% ownership interest in Folium Life Sciences Inc., a Health Canada-licensed cannabis cultivator. Folium is expanding its licensed indoor cannabis production facility on Vancouver Island to produce a high quality and consistent cannabis product on site.

On March 25, 2020 the Company, through its Spanish subsidiary Global Zifar S.L., acquired the intellectual property and trade names of “Sativida” in Spain, and will license both back to Sativida in exchange for a royalty associated with the gross revenues generated by Sativida. Sativida is a producer and online retailer of CBD and branded CBD products in certain jurisdictions in Europe, including Spain, Portugal, Austria, Germany, France and the UK. Sativida is also the top search-ranked online retailer of CBD products in Spain and Mexico and plans to continue expanding its footprint in Europe and Latin America.

On January 17, 2020 Thoughtful Brands completed its acquisition of First Class CBD (which was re-branded as Nature’s Exclusive on April 6, 2020), an online direct-to-consumer retail distributor in the United States. Nature’s Exclusive offers a CBD hemp-oil formula intended to provide users with the therapeutic benefits that hemp-derived CBD may offer. The hemp oil used in the products is derived from hemp grown and cultivated in the United States. The extraction process is designed to maintain all the beneficial qualities that hemp may offer. Natures Exclusive offers a range of products, which include CBD oil drops, CBD gummies, CBD pain relief cream and CBD skin serum.

In January 2020, the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary Ihuana S.A.S entered into a research cooperation agreement with La Fundacion Universitaria de Ciencias de la Salud (The University Foundation of Health Sciences) located in Bogota, Colombia. Pursuant to the agreement with the university, the parties agreed to engage in research and formulation of medicinal products made with non-psychoactive cannabis and cannabis byproducts.

In January 2020, Ihuana completed its 2,000 square foot research and development facility in Guasca, Colombia. The purpose-built R&D facility is for a seed registration program on Ihuana’s licensed land. This was a significant step, as it allows Ihuana to register the genetics of its high-CBD, low-THC strains of cannabis with the Colombian Agricultural Institute (Instituto Colombiano Agroprecuario, or ICA).

Key highlights subsequent to June 30, 2020

On August 22, 2020, the Company, through its wholly-owned US subsidiary, Ecommerce Tech LLC, acquired the rights to an eCommerce software platform from Unified Funding LLC’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Offer Space LLC. Prior to the Software acquisition, the Software was being used by the Company’s Nature’s Exclusive brand, and by the newly acquired brands, Golden Path and Wild Mariposa, through service agreements with Offer Space. The acquisition of the asset provides the Company with the opportunity to capture previously unrealized value from the products it launches in the online natural health market. The Software facilitated over Cdn$350 million in consumer transactions, including Cdn$93.8 million in 2019. The asset enhances the management of the Company’s already profitable online brands, and allows the Company to launch new products and enter into emerging natural health markets worldwide, more efficiently.

On August 19, 2020, the Company acquired Golden Path LLC and Wild Mariposa LLC, two direct-to-consumer eCommerce brands offering a range of natural health products, including nutraceutical and hemp-based CBD, within the United States. Every product manufactured is third-party tested for purity and manufactured in the United States in GMP certified facilities. The acquisitions expanded the Company’s portfolio in the nutraceutical and hemp-based CBD product space.

On July 21, 2020, the Company entered into a binding agreement with Franchise Cannabis Corp. to form a joint venture in Europe to sell and market Franchise-manufactured CBD, hemp and cosmetic products in the European Union, Switzerland, Norway and the United Kingdom. Sales of the custom-manufactured products will be sold online utilizing the Company’s eCommerce infrastructure.

Franchise is a European-focused cannabis and pharmaceutical distribution company based in Germany with two Good Distribution Practices (GDP) certified distribution facilities, exporting to over 18 countries and currently serving a network of over 1,500 pharmacies within Germany for medical cannabis sales.
