Namaste Technologies Inc., a marketplace platform for cannabis and wellness products, announced that its wholly owned subsidiary CannMart Labs Inc. has received a standard processing licence from Health Canada. The Company will now focus on the next step in the process, which is commissioning the equipment, a process which will commence immediately. The Company will leverage its existing sales licence through CannMart Inc. to bring our recreational products to provinces in Canada where Namaste already has a distribution network in place. We expect to have CannMart Labs manufactured products in the market by the end of Q2 2021.
Highlights of CannMart Labs:
- CannMart Labs facility in Ontario is established for BHO extraction using leading extraction technology, making it one of only a few facilities in Canada with such capabilities.
- Set to produce in-house branded Cannabis 2.0 products for medical channel customers at CannMart.com and recreational customers across Canada through sister company CannMart’s network of provincial sales partners.
- Cannabis 2.0 products initially planned include shatter, live resin, badder, wax and others with capabilities to expand future distillate product offerings to vape cartridges, gel capsules, tinctures and edibles. In addition, we will be looking to add solventless products such as rosin to our portfolio in the near future.
Namaste owns 100% of the CannMart Labs facility, which is located in Etobicoke, Ontario, a purpose-built oil extraction facility which incorporates a leading extraction technology facility designed to meet EU Good Manufacturing Practice (EU-GMP) certification requirements. We will look at selling our manufactured products to other licensed producers and other sales channels as they become available.
“This is a major catalyst for Namaste to generate material revenue through the sale of new and exciting cannabis products and by offering contract manufacturing services to our partners,” said Meni Morim, CEO of Namaste. “The team has selected and installed state-of-the-art extraction equipment and technology in its facility, which will be able to produce an array of cannabis products including shatter and live resin, as well as future distillate products such as vape cartridges, gel capsules, tinctures and edibles. We look forward to producing our in house branded Cannabis 2.0 products, including “ROILTY” for our medical channel customers at CannMart.com and recreational consumers across Canada through our network of provincial sales partners.”
