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. 

US LEGALIZATION IS ACCELERATING 

After postponing a proposed September vote, the full U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote in December on a bill that would effectively legalize marijuana federally by removing it from the Controlled Substances Act. 

According to Politico, the House Democratic leadership is preparing for a vote on the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement (MORE) Act of 2019. In addition to legalizing marijuana federally, the legislation would allow states to continue to choose how to regulate a commercial MJ industry. 

Democrats in close elections balked at voting on the MORE Act in September amid concerns that voters might question the importance of legalizing marijuana when Congress had failed to agree on a coronavirus aid package. 

But in the November election, five more states legalized medical and/or recreational marijuana, and a recent poll shows cannabis legalization is more popular than ever. 

Big cap marijuana stocks have already seen significant gains 

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

TransCanna $TCAN.ca Provides Corporate Update – Production Capacity of Lyfted Farms Facility is Currently Sold-Out Until March, 2021 $VFF.ca $ACB.ca $CGC.ca $GTII.ca $TEQ.ca

  • Final license achieved July 2020
  • 16,000 sq ft Distribution Space open for business in Q4
  • Contracts in place with much larger farms than the Company were able to service out of the smaller facility (16,000sq ft vs. 1,250 sq ft)
  • Build-out for cultivation has begun
  • The first harvest from cultivation in Daly expected in Q1
  • “Phase 1” Daly canopy sq. ft. capable of generating $30M + USD/year in cultivation revenue alone
  • In combination with increased Distribution capacity on track for 2021 rev target of $60M+ out of this facility

Vancouver, British Columbia–(November 2, 2020) – TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN) (FSE: TH8) (“TransCanna” or the “Company”) is very pleased to provide a corporate update:

  • Lyfted Farms Products are in High Demand and Selling Out
  • Lyfted Farms Secures Multiple Off-Take Agreements
  • Q4 Revenue Guidance
  • Crop Management Business Launched
  • Daly Facility Update

Product Update

Lyfted Farms flower is one of a very few branded indoor cultivation companies that routinely delivers on customer expectations for quality. This is reflected in the caliber of the retail stores that carry Lyfted Farms and by customer demand for our products. Lyfted Farms genetic library is fully capable of delivering new strains seasonally and has evolved into a trend-defining marketplace leader where other cannabis entities watch and emulate our products. Material process improvements have resulted in larger “nugget” sizing, increased THC levels, and a more robust curing cycle yielding better taste and aromatic profiles. These changes have had a positive effect on the pricing structure, with a 66% increase in wholesale pricing and a 100% increase in gross margins.

Off-Take Agreements

The Company has secured multiple off-take agreements in anticipation of late Q1 production coming out of the Daly facility. Shareholders will be given greater detail in subsequent news releases when all material details are finalized. As a result of the status of these agreements, the Company has tremendous confidence it will achieve or exceed its stated 2021 revenue targets.

Contracts with the likes of renowned retail partner Cookies, where Lyfted Farms currently has five sku’s in stores, provides the additional benefit of cost savings by not requiring a large in-house sales team or paying expensive 3rd party commissions, which are common in the Cannabis Sector.

Revenue Guidance

Lyfted Farms products produced out of the Company’s smaller Lyfted Farms facility continue to sell out and exceed sales expectations. Due to the increased capacity of the first 16,000 sq ft of distribution space in the Daly facility, the Company anticipates its Fourth Quarter to be its strongest of the year. The Company’s internal gross revenue target for the 2020 fiscal year ranges from CAD$12,000,000 up to CAD$14,000,000 (with anticipated net profits from sales of $600,000 up to $700,000). The Company is on track to achieve this benchmark.

With the opening of the Daly facility, associated off-take agreements, high demand for sales, and a strong distribution division, the Company maintains its guidance for a gross revenue target of CAD$55,000,000 to CAD$75,000,000 (with anticipated net profits from sales of $6,600,000 up to $9,000,000) for the fiscal year 2021. This revenue guidance is only for phase one of four in the Daly facility with phase one construction costs estimated to be CAD$3,172,500.

“With a significant portion of the year spent on submitting and obtaining licenses, we expect investor attention to shift to our 2021 performance. Our goal has always been to drive shareholder value through incremental sales contracts and quality products. This focus has us well-positioned to begin the build-out of the Daly building and scale our business,” States Bob Blink, company CEO. “I am very proud of how the team has come together through unprecedented events both globally and in our own back yard. 2021 will be a very exciting year for the Company.”

Crop Management Services Division

On October 8, 2020, the Company announced Lyfted Farms’ crop services management division (LFCSMD) first facility would come online January 1, 2021. This initiative is on schedule and will begin generating an additional revenue stream for the Company over and above the already thriving cultivation and distribution divisions. The first payments to LFCSMD are set to commence December 1, 2020. LFCSMD allows the Company to further monetize its genetic catalogue and further the Company’s reputation within the industry as best in class cultivators and operators. Additionally, this allows the Company to build out its supply chain — feeding its growing fulfillment and white-labeling business and maximizing efficiencies within the Daly Facility.

Daly Facility Update

The licensing and engineered build-out of the Daly Facility continues to be the core strength for the company. The amalgamation of a number of California’s strongest cannabis brands coming into the largest and most efficient facilities in the State is a truly powerful combination.

Updates at a glance:

  • Final license achieved July 2020
  • 16,000 sq ft Distribution Space open for business in Q4
    • contracts in place with much larger farms than the Company were able to service out of the smaller facility (16,000sq ft vs. 1,250 sq ft)
  • Build-out for cultivation has begun
  • The first harvest from cultivation in Daly expected in Q1
  • “Phase 1” Daly canopy sq. ft. capable of generating $30M + USD/year in cultivation revenue alone
  • In combination with increased Distribution capacity on track for 2021 rev target of $60M+ out of this facility

Other Highlights

Smaller Lyfted Farms Facility has outperformed expectations.

  • Production capacity of Lyfted Farms facility is currently sold-out until March, 2021
  • Average sales price per gram has increased from $5.70/gram to $8.57/gram, or +66% (increased demand and collaboration/co-branding) & 100% increase in gross margin
  • Average total harvest weight per room is trending up

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.

For more information about the company, please check out the Avicanna HUB on AGORACOM.

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.

TransCanna $TCAN.ca Subsidiary Opens Bank Account with California Based Credit Union $CGC $ACB $APH $CRON.ca $OGI.ca

  • Announced that Lyfted Farms Inc. (a wholly-owned subsidiary) has opened two banking accounts with a local California credit union based in Modesto, California
  • Credit union has agreed to open accounts to service both the Lyfted Farms licensed cannabis commercial activity and a second account for the Higher Standard Apparel Co., which merchandises Lyfted Farms Brand [email protected]
  • Lyfted Farms payroll and payments to vendors will now be dispatched through conventional banking methods via the credit union account and will require less time and expense to process

Vancouver, British Columbia–(September 10, 2020) –  TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN) (XETR: TH8) (“TransCanna” or the “Company”) TransCanna announces that Lyfted Farms Inc. (a wholly-owned subsidiary) has opened two banking accounts with a local California credit union based in Modesto, California.

The credit union has agreed to open accounts to service both the Lyfted Farms licensed cannabis commercial activity and a second account for the Higher Standard Apparel Co., which merchandises Lyfted Farms Brand [email protected]

The accounts are being opened to full-service all financial business needs after more than a year of due diligence on the part of the financial institution, including on-site visits to Lyfted Farms facilities, and will be operational by September 15th, 2020. Lyfted Farms payroll and payments to vendors will now be dispatched through conventional banking methods via the credit union account and will require less time and expense to process.

“We are pleased to be working with a local California based credit union as our financial services provider,” says Bob Blink, TransCanna CEO. “The organization has been servicing this community for decades and was founded by agricultural producers who, like us, live and work here, so we look forward to working with a respected organization that has the same level of appreciation for our market and our community as we do.”

Blink adds that the Federal prohibition on cannabis on the mainstream/non-credit union banking system has put a strain on legitimate businesses and that conducting large transactions in cash, as many licensed cannabis companies are forced to do, is a cumbersome and less secure process.

“Our growth is making banking a greater necessity with every passing day,” says Blink.”

The opening of the accounts represents historic firsts for both Lyfted Farms Inc., to have access to traditional banking services, and for a local California-based credit union to have a cannabis-based business client.

The Company further announces it has granted a total of 200,0000 incentive stock options to consultants involved in the development of the Company’s operations. The options are exercisable for a period of one year from the date of grant at an exercise price of $1.06 per common share in the capital of the Company.

The stock options are being granted pursuant to the terms of the Company’s stock option plan and are subject to regulatory approval.

  • First batch of its cannabis concentrate products that is being co-branded with award-winning product producer, the Summit Boys, will be available for purchase this week
  • Lyfted Farms Inc. (a TransCanna subsidiary) is now supplying high-quality-cannabis ‘trim’ (a by-product of cannabis flower production) to the Summit Boys for processing into an already popular line of cannabis concentrates branded as ‘Caviar’

Vancouver, British Columbia–(July 28, 2020) – TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN) (FSE: TH8) (“TransCanna” or the “Company”) TransCanna announces that the first batch of its cannabis concentrate products that is being co-branded with award-winning product producer, the Summit Boys, will be available for purchase this week.

Lyfted Farms Inc. (a TransCanna subsidiary) is now supplying high-quality-cannabis ‘trim’ (a by-product of cannabis flower production) to the Summit Boys for processing into an already popular line of cannabis concentrates branded as ‘Caviar.’ These retail products now also include innovative packaging featuring a ‘window’ to showcase the superior color and texture of the concentrates.

Cannabis concentrates have a greater proportion of cannabinoids and terpenes when compared to natural cannabis flowers, and can increase the potency of cannabis flower. Demand for these concentrates are also the fastest-growing of any cannabis product in the California market (the largest Cannabis market globally.)

The Summit Boys are a well-known legacy recreational cannabis product producer with a cult-like following on Instagram of over 66,000 followers. In 2019, the Summit Boys earned over 14 Bay Area Cannabis Cup awards in several categories, including for Best Product and Hybrid Concentrate.

“The sale of these products is the first exciting step in our distribution plan to bring a higher-quality product to market by aligning with California’s most reputable industry partners, said Bob Blink, TransCanna CEO, adding that consumers recognize the Summit Boys for their quality of product and processing superiority. This collaboration also increases our profit margin for each harvest by converting trim, which can be valued as low as USD $0.15 per gram, into a refined finished product that wholesales for USD $17.00 per gram.”

“Our goal has always been to make the best tasting and smelling products that drive customers to come back for what we have to offer. Now that we are using even higher quality trim from Lyfted Farms we can’t wait to see how our customers react,” said Mike Larson, the Summit Boys CEO. “This is the best product that we’ve ever produced. Fire into the process equals fire out.”

  • Announced that Lyfted Farms Inc. (a wholly-owned subsidiary) will build a processing division inside its Daly Street Building
  • Aas not originally planned in phase one in order to meet the increased demand for this service and ultimately increase profits margins
  • Once operational, the division will oversee the trimming, drying, curing, grading and packaging of cannabis, and support TransCanna’s strategy of vertical integration of the California cannabis market through distribution centers serving Northern California from the Daly Street building, and Southern California from the Company’s recently announced Lemoore facility

Vancouver, British Columbia–(July 22, 2020) – TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN) (FSE: TH8) (“TransCanna” or the “Company”) TransCanna announces that Lyfted Farms Inc. (a wholly-owned subsidiary) will build a processing division inside its Daly Street Building that was not originally planned in phase one in order to meet the increased demand for this service and ultimately increase profits margins.

Once operational, the division will oversee the trimming, drying, curing, grading and packaging of cannabis, and support TransCanna’s strategy of vertical integration of the California cannabis market through distribution centers serving Northern California from the Daly Street building, and Southern California from the Company’s recently announced Lemoore facility.

“Once we received our final State License for the Daly Building, our already existing demand increased significantly. To meet this demand and seize the opportunity we saw to really drive our bottom line margin through processing, we sped up the timeline to add processing at this level,” said Bob Blink, TransCanna CEO. “We have the team and the space to execute this. Being agile enough to adapt to a changing market and identify opportunities for growth within it speaks to our collective mindset. When we run the numbers, we can see upon execution this service adding an additional 10% to our forecasted revenue targets,” adds Blink.

“This will facilitate the larger strategy of the Daly facility becoming a central distribution point for Lyfted Branded products and a wholesale processing center,” said Alan Applonie, company General Manager. “Converging marketing and buying interests into a single Northern California location gives state-wide buyers a broader range of products to purchase,” he adds.

The Processor License is an additional license type not included in the original statute specifically added for processors. As this is a new business segment whilst being built out, the Company has submitted an application for a Processor License and anticipates approximately a 90-day timeline to receive it.

The Daly building’s phase one deployment plan will also accommodate perpetual storage of at least 20,000 lbs. of cannabis flower in a climate-controlled atmosphere that will serve business-to-business cannabis market demand throughout California.
