VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 11, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BLOK Technologies Inc. ("BLOK Tech" or the "Company") (CSE:BLK) (BLPFF) (FRANKFURT:2AD) is pleased to announce that the Company has begun discussions with one of Canada's most technologically advanced licensed producers (“LP”) under the Cannabis Act.
As the Canadian government's Cannabis Act continues the development of the legalization of cannabis, BLOK Tech’s management believes Greenstream's comprehensive technology can be a valued solution to the cannabis industry tracking seed to sale and conforming with Canadian regulations. BLOK Tech’s goal is to run a pilot project with a LP with the goal of standardizing practice throughout the industry.
"We are pleased that a Canadian LP has shown an interest in Greenstream technology. By getting our foot in the door with one of Canada's premier growers we can start to show the efficiencies and value of blockchain technology, hopefully leading to an industry standard," stated Interim President & CEO, James Hyland.
Greenstream is a developing commercialized blockchain-enabled supply chain integrity platform to ensure the safe, legal and authenticated flow of products and value through the cannabis market, marking seed to sale, which is one of the key components to regulation.
