Stock trading News | Small cap opportunity: BTV Examines Cannabis Growing Industry
BTV-Business Television delves into companies creating opportunities in the budding cannabis sector:
– NanoSphere Delivery System™ is a disruptive technology created by NanoSphere Health Science (NSHS:CSE), where ingredients are encapsulated in a nano-sized membrane that protects them from immediate dilution or degradation. This is extremely important because it enhances biological stability, improves cellular transport, enhances therapeutic effects and targets the specific site, causing fewer side effects.
– A high-speed, low-temperature, cost-efficient drying process has been developed by EnWave Corporation to provide superior flavor and texture to food products. This technology is a continuous process that allows control of the final moisture level of organic materials by altering the atmospheric pressure in the machinery.
– CannTrust is a federally licensed producer that has established a partnership with Apotex, its pharma partner, to develop standardized medical cannabis for patients in need.
With a 50,000 square foot hydroponic facility, that enables control of the whole process, the company can deliver standardized medical cannabis that is 100% pesticide free.
– Involved in the cannabis industry since 2013, Delta 9 Cannabis (NINE:TSX.V) produces top quality medical cannabis using standardized hydroponic growing methodologies and proprietary Grow Pods. This can ensure patients are getting consistent quality products, while the good selection of strains accommodates the diverse needs of patients across Canada.
– Lexaria Bioscience Corp. has developed a new technology that improves the delivery of medical cannabis while helping products taste and smell better.
Faster acting and better absorbed, the Lexaria’s DehydraTECH™ model can be used for cannabinoids as well as for a variety of other bioactive molecules such as nicotine, vitamins and NSAID’s.
– Quadron Cannatech Corporation (QCC.CN) is an automated cannabis extraction and processing Solutions Company, which provides ancillary equipment, products and services.
Through its three subsidiaries, the company is ready to meet the complex demands of the federally authorized cannabis industry in North America.
Currently, the company’s focus is on a disruptive CO2 extractor called The BOSS CO2 Extraction System.
The company has developed it after suffering, as many others in the industry, with problems caused by different extraction methods, including ordinary CO2 extractors.
