Financialnewsmedia.com News Commentary
The Canadian Cannabis industry is unsurprisingly on fire as it rides the wave provided by full-recreational legalization. Consumers have already dumped millions into the burgeoning marijuana economy to the north of the US border, and the growth is only forecasted to continue. According to a Brookings Institute Study, the market is projected to generate over $4 billion in sales revenue in just the first year. This has led to elevated competition levels in the Canadian cannabis market, forcing companies to expand operations in order to maintain their share of the market. Canada is the first G20 nation in the world to fully legalize cannabis and the implications are enormous as well as strong revenue generating opportunities. Active cannabis companies in the markets this week include PotNetwork Holdings, Inc. (OTC:POTN), Terra Tech Corp. (OTC:TRTC), Aphria Inc. (TSX:APH) (OTC:APHQF), Liberty Health Sciences Inc. (CSE:LHS) (OTC:LHSIF), MariMed Inc. (OTC:MRMD).
PotNetwork Holdings, Inc. (OTCPK:POTN) BREAKING NEWS: PotNetwork Holdings announced today that it is preparing to list its common stock on the Canadian Securities Exchange ("CSE") operated by CNSX Markets Inc. The Company has engaged Canadian securities counsel to assist with the listing process. A CSE listing will allow the Company's common stock to be dual listed in both U.S. and Canada.
The application for a listing on the CSE will follow the Company's transition to becoming a fully reporting Company with the SEC once its recent Form 10 filing becomes effective. The Company also intends to complete an uplisting to the OTCQB market tier on OTC Markets.
Kevin Hagen, CEO, stated, "Public attitudes around the world towards CBD are shifting as a result of people and regulators understanding the benefits of CBD. Cannabis-based products, in general, are experiencing explosive growth and we have begun an aggressive expansion of our business to further drive the growth of the Company into 2019. Integral to that expansion, is our decision that the time is right to list our stock on the Canadian market. The CSE already lists many companies in our industry, making this move an extremely logical choice that we believe will significantly benefit both the Company and its shareholders, across two countries instead of one."
