A targeted expansion
In January this year, the Vancouver-based company said it was planning a targeted expansion of its proprietary platform (StrainSecure) into the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical verticals in 2020.
It is also planning to enter several international markets, it said in a statement.
The firm had a banner year in 2019 with its StrainSecure technology being deployed in a medical cannabis verification program run by major Canadian pharmacy chain Shoppers Drug Mart.
