NetworkNewsBreaks – ABcann Global Corporation (TSXV: ABCN) Included in the Horizons Medical Marijuana Life Sciences ETF

ABcann Global Corporation (TSXV: ABCN) yesterday announced its inclusion in the Horizons Medical Marijuana Life Sciences ETF (TSX: HMMJ). The ETF is a first-of-its-kind index offering investors direct exposure to a basket of North American life sciences companies with significant business activities in the medical marijuana sector. “The Horizons ETF represents a new type of investment, a fund that tracks an industry in which there is considerable interest but which had no prior investment vehicle through which investors could gain broad exposure,” Aaron Keay, CEO of ABcann, stated in the news release. “Our inclusion in the ETF represents an important milestone for our company as we strive to become a dominant industry participant.” Moving forward, stocks will be rebalanced quarterly on a market-capitalization basis, with a cap in place to ensure that no single stock can exceed 10 percent of the weight of the ETF when rebalanced. Only stocks that meet minimum asset and liquidity thresholds will be eligible for inclusion in the index.

About ABcann Global Corporation

ABcann was one of the first companies to obtain a production license under the Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations, which it received on March 21, 2014. It obtained a sales license on December 31, 2015. ABcann’s flagship facility, in Napanee, Ontario, contains proprietary plant-growing technology, including environmentally-controlled chambers capable of monitoring and regulating all variables in the growing process. This approach and the systems in place allow ABcann to produce organically grown and pesticide-free, high-yielding plants, which, in turn, can generate high-quality products that are consistent from batch to batch. ABcann is able to control environmental and nutrient demands, tailor-made for a particular strain of cannabis, without the variation that is typical when producing large quantities in less-controlled, larger rooms and greenhouse-type structures. ABcann’s modular approach to systems technology eliminates scale-up risk and allows ABcann to locate anywhere in the world and maintain consistency and quality of product.
