Listen to the podcast interview with Mr. William Ralston, President and Director of SinglePoint Inc. (OTCQB: SING) talking about recent cannabis news and sector
When asked about the recent announcement involving Convectium/Jacksam, Mr. Ralston commented, "Convectium was founded on the basis that automation, speed, hardware and technology combined for the ancillary cannabis space can really help these manufacturers and retailers make their whole filling and supply chain process much simpler and efficient. Typically what would happen is, people would hire a staff to fill 1000 cartridges or whatever their need was for the week and have what the industry called "filling parties" and that's sloppy, messy and slow. So Convectium came in and found there was an opportunity there. They've built out a machine where you can put in all your oil and in a single insert of the custom cartridge they give you, you can fill 100 pens in less than 30 seconds and there is no spillage or leakage, so not only is your efficiency better but it’s an easier, cleaner, money saving and time saving process."
Discussing what separates Convectium from some of their competitors, Ralston said, "Right now Convectium, in our opinion, is really leading the way because they check all the boxes for what a company may need when it comes to filling and getting these automation systems set up. With their device they're working with over 100 companies in the industry right now and these are large industry players with multiple locations and multiple operations, which is quite a significant number when you take into account all the doors they've opened. What sold us on them originally was they were the razor blade model. If you bought their machine, you came back to order their cartridges. Since then they've opened up their system and that's what's going to be the real game changer. Convectium decided, we don't need to be a cartridge player, that market is already defined, what we need to do is truly focus in on our automation systems and be a value addition to the people that are leading the way in providing great cartridges to the market."
SinglePoint Inc. will also be presenting their Pure Hemp Cigarettes next month at NACS on October 1st - 4th at booth 5653. Ralston noted, "We're attending NACS, which is the largest trade show and sort of the Grand Daddy of them all. We're laying out a massive marketing opportunity here; attending the show, sending out mail and sending out emails to the over 22,000 attendees and really putting some weight behind pushing this. The reason for that is that it's a bit of a drag race in this market right now and we are positioning ourselves to be a leader. Previously our CEO, Greg Lambrecht took Premium Cigars International (NASDAQ: PCI) public on the NASDAQ and this is the same sort of market. It's going to the convenience stores, talking with tobacco buyers, talking with retail buyers and distributors and picking up those accounts and getting out product into all those accounts they service." The product is currently available at SingleSeed.com.

Canopy Rivers is a unique investment and operating platform structured to pursue investment opportunities in the emerging global cannabis sector. Canopy Rivers identifies strategic counterparties seeking financial and/or operating support. Canopy Rivers has developed an investment ecosystem of complementary cannabis operating companies that represent various segments of the value chain across the emerging cannabis sector.
Discussing the recent purchase and supply agreement between TerrAscend and JWC and how this demonstrates the value of the Canopy Rivers ecosystem, Alexandrian said, "Our thesis is that vertical integration doesn't work. It doesn't work because government's are forcing companies to vertically integrate, but it's not their actual choice to do so. When you force an industry to vertically integrate, what you find is a lot of inefficiencies get created. Some companies are great farmers, some are great brand builders, but seldom do you see companies that can do both things very well. The exception would be Canopy Growth, because you can do a lot with 4 billion dollars, but those other companies are spreading their resources too thin. When you look at JWC, one of the things that they're very good at, is their aeroponic cultivation. This leads to clean, consistent, high quality product for the end consumer. On the TerrAscend side, you have a pharmaceutical focused processing, retail and distribution operator, and they're the only company selling in Canada, Europe and the US. When you put these two together you get the best of breeds, you create a synthetic best of breeds producer."
Listen to the podcast interview with Nick Kovacevich, CEO and Founder of KushCo Holdings Inc. (OTC: KSHB)
Mr. Kovacevich talks about how he and his company had to adapt to the industry over the last ten years. “We wanted to get in the cannabis space, the question was how. We saw an opportunity in the packaging side, to be able to get involved in every transaction without directly touching the plant. We felt there was a lot less risk involved. We started selling Kush Bottles door to door and have grown the business to over 250 employees across 8 States and 3 countries.”
He went on to say, “Since then we have diversified from packaging into four broader product categories: packaging and labeling, vape, Kush energy and papers and supplies is our fourth. We target all of these products directly to businesses that operate in the cannabis and CBD industry. This year already, we have already serviced over 6000 businesses with these various products they need on a regular basis.”
Listen to the podcast interview with Matt Markiewicz, Managing Director of Innovation Shares which also manages The Cannabis ETF (NYSE: THCX)
When asked about some of the factors that influence their decisions to add or remove certain companies from the ETF, Mr. Markiewicz said, “A stock must a have a minimum 100 million dollar market cap US in order to even be considered in the portfolio. It also has to trade on one of 5 exchanges in the world, which are the ASX, TSX, TSX-V, NYSE or NASDAQ. We also have liquidity requirements as well and we rebound this portfolio monthly and we apply a modified market cap approach."
Talking about the proposed Safe Banking Act, and how much he sees this impacting the US cannabis industry as well as your ETF, Markiewicz commented, "The question for us is will the potential passage of the safe banking act allow companies easier access to capital markets, or in other words list on the NYSE or NASDAQ. As I mentioned, we have a requirement that stocks have to trade on one of those exchanges. From a funds specific standpoint, I think it would be massive. From a broader perspective, it would open up the market to the larger equity space. Right now you're still not seeing many of the largest fund managers in the world getting involved with cannabis. If the safe banking act will allow those institutions to become more comfortable with owning the stock of these public companies, then this could be a watershed moment for the industry."
Looking at how much attention they are paying to the international scope of the industry, Markiewicz reported, "I think the growth of the global cannabis story is quite interesting. There are companies that are trading now or will be trading soon that will have access to these global markets. As regulatory changes occur in markets around the world, they definitely bear watching. It's going to be an opportunity for revenue expansions, or multiple expansions for the companies entrenching themselves in these markets."
