This week on the Green Rush we are chatting with Angelo Tsebelis, Chief Executive Officer at WeedMD (TSX: WMD; OTC: WDDMF) a highly focused, licensed producer and distributor of cannabis products for both the medical and adult-use markets in Canada.
WeedMD is widely recognized throughout the industry for producing high quality products, using indoor & outdoor cultivation combined with in-house extraction, product development & manufacturing. With its recent acquisition of Starseed Medicinal, WeedMD has expanded its multi-channeled distribution strategy with a valuable medical channel. Starseed’s partnerships with union groups, employers and benefit providers in Canada, provide exclusive access to ~350,000+ potential patients, and complements WeedMD’s direct sales to medical patients. The Company is also well capitalized to continue its commercial growth and pursue its Cannabis 2.0 product roll out for all channels, with a strategic institutional investor in the LiUNA Pension Fund.
Angelo joined our hosts Nick and Phil to discuss all things WeedMD including the Company’s indoor & outdoor cultivation capabilities, its unique closed loop direct-to-consumer medical sales model, and consumer trends in the cannabis industry under the conditions of COVID-19.
So don’t sit back, lean forward and enjoy!
