Industry leaders strengthen partnership to meet growing demand for pesticide-free medical cannabis
TEL AVIV, Israel, Jan. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Seedo Corp. (SEDO), a high-tech company providing the world's first fully automated and controlled indoor growing machine for the organic cannabis and agriculture markets, today announced that U.S.-based partner and investor Cannabics Pharmaceuticals Inc., a leader in personalized cannabinoid medicine focused on cancer and its side effects, is converting its $1 million convertible loan to Seedo into common shares of the company.
This signals increasing support from Cannabics who announced in August 2018 details of its investment in Seedo along with news of the companies' partnership to develop the world's first controlled device for growing medical cannabis at home. The collaboration between these industry leaders is poised to provide patients with the precision growth technology necessary to ensure standardized control over their medical cannabis supply.
"The fact that Cannabics Pharmaceuticals is choosing to increase its shares in Seedo now instead of upholding the right to convert this loan in a year's time speaks volumes to the trust between our two organizations," said Zohar Levy, CEO and Director of Seedo Corp. "We look forward to continuing to build on this strong partnership as we bring to market our revolutionary product that will enable patients a precise way to source pesticide-free, medical-grade cannabis designed to meet their unique patient profile."
