Health Canada announced the specifics for cannabis 2.0 on legalization day 2019, which pushed off the actual appearance of the products on shelves until mid-December.

New licenses, deals, products – that’s all good – but it’s not the nitty gritty stuff investors are looking for now.
By “nitty-gritty” we mean – numbers.

“The simple fact of the matter is ACB is getting around a THIRD of their product returned in real dollar terms,” wrote Equity Guru’s Chris Parry two months ago, “That means they either REALLY suck at growing weed, or they really sucked at figuring out what the market was going to look like when planning their business.”
“Borrowing money and expanding hard in competition with MedMen (MMEN.C) is a two-edged sword,” explained Equity Guru’s Chris Parry, “In a strong market, you’re building far more value than you’re borrowing but, in a down market, you’re under extra pressure to keep things together when debts come due.”
It’s time for your quarantine-inspired COVID-19 weed stock rundown, so grab a coffee and follow along because really what else do you have to do?

Xphyto Therapeutics (XPHY.C) announced today that they advancing its thin film CBD delivery system for epilepsy sufferers to clinical trials. In the past three months,
No company in the Canadian cannabis space polarizes people like Green Organic Dutchman (TGOD.T), which roared to the public markets on perhaps the biggest promote yet seen, raised nine-digit totals along the way, swept in more first time private placement participants than any company before them, and then did… well… nothing, for a long time. With top brass having been walked recently and plans to super-size the company grow facilities shelved in the wake of underwhelming need for more weed, TGOD has made no secret it is at a moment of recalibration, but investors will have expected to see more than this.
When cannabis was legalized in 2017, it was thought to be more akin to a land of milk and honey for investors. Everyone was going
Heritage is now installing extraction and post-production equipment units at Empower’s existing licensed hemp processing facility in Sandy, Oregon, to begin performing “hemp-based product manufacturing for proprietary formulations, tolling services, and third-party white labelling services for other distributors throughout the United States”.

A quick scan of headlines today would tell a harrowing story that Heritage Cannabis (CANN.C) was in big trouble and had lost $13 million and pandemonium had broken loose, and dogs and cats were going to be living together any time now. That’s because the company led their Q4 financials news release today with their yearly metrics filling the headlines, while their not-so-rough quarterly numbers were largely and inexplicably hidden from view.

Respect where it’s due, I haven’t been to an investor conference in a long time where I came away interested in most of what I saw, let alone *everything* I saw, but this year’s Gravitas Securities Growth Conference lineup absolutely hit it out of the park. The GSGC isn’t the biggest show around, but they know how to turn out the playahs, and the only way you keep big money showing up is to be a little bit picky with what you offer them. Don’t waste anyone’s time and they’ll know it’s cool to return.
BevCanna Enterprises (BEV.C) is doubling their production floor space from 5,235 square feet to 10,378 in preparation for getting their processing license later on this
With a little over and hour left in the year 2019, past 10PM on December 31, I saw a news release from James E. Wagner Cultivation (JWCA.V) about a small $2 million loan they’d taken out. The timing of the announcement of their loan was surely not coincidental. Actually, thinking about it, ‘payday loan’ might be the more appropriate term to have used. JVCA took out a debenture financing of $2 million at an interest rate of 25% annually. That’s just the first tranche of the deal; there’s another $8 million out there if they want it. My credit card, abused as it has been, costs me less interest to maintain than JWCA’s loan.
You’ve gotta love it when a plan comes together: 1933 Industries (TGIF.C), which has been banging the same ‘we’re grownups, we’re doing it right, hang tight’ drum for several years now, dropped news this February 14 that will make any Valentine’s heart swell with joy. “Following the completion of a combined 20,000-square-foot expanded cultivation, extraction, manufacturing and distribution facility in the Los Angeles area, the company began harvesting its first cannabis crop this week to be utilized for both its proprietary brand Alternative Medicine Association (AMA), as well as for its licensing partner luxury brand Blonde cannabis, with products earmarked for dispensaries for the first time outside of Nevada.”

Like the old Twilight Zone episode where helpful aliens leave behind a book called ‘To Serve Man’, only for us to find out later it’s a cookbook, investors have been welcomed and fattened up nicely by alpha predators as they unwittingly await their slaughter, not realizing that, they’re at the predator’s table because they’re the main course.
