In a recent interview at Wall Street Reporter’s “Investors Discovery Day” livestream, Delic Holdings (OTC: DELCF) CEO Matt Stang shared his unique strategy for capitalizing on what is expected to be the next massive new market opportunity: psychedelics. As the former publisher of “High Times Magazine” over 14 years, Matt Stang paved the way for cannabis legalization, and along the way, developed a network of industry pioneers who are now active in the psychedelics space. In his interview, Stang explains DELCF’s unique psychedelics “ecosystem” business model - which offers synergies, and leverage - and generates revenues across the entire psychedelics value chain.

DELCF’s ecosystem spans across an online media platform which provides consumers information and reviews, on psychedelics - an expanding chain of ketamine treatment clinics - to a licensed research lab developing innovative psychedelics product formulations - to clinical research data for biotech & pharma for developing new psychedelic compounds. DELCF intends to expand this ecosystem further, through M&A, leveraging Matt Stang’s 14 years of experience and wide industry contacts across the industry.

Icanic Brands (OTC: ICNAF) (CSE: ICAN) CEO Brandon Kou: “Ready to Scale with Quality Brands, and a Superior Gross Margin Profile”

“The Tesla of Cannabis” is what some savvy investors are calling Icanic Brands (OTC: ICNAF) (CSE: ICAN), after its recent presentation at Wall Street Reporter’s “Investors Discovery Day” livestream. ICNAF is a leader in the California market, and specifically in the pre-rolled space, with its award-winning, “Ganja Gold” brand, sold in hundreds of retail outlets. A key component of ICNAF’s success is its pre-roll manufacturing technologies which produce consistent, high-quality pre-rolls at high gross margins - a major competitive advantage in the cannabis industry.

In his livestream presentation, ICNAF CEO Brandon Kou outlined the company’s growth strategy, based on a “three pillar approach”: sales platform, technology, and vertical integration which lead to a superior gross margin profile. With a profitable foundation established, ICNAF is now at an inflection point where it’s ready to start scaling revenues and expand with strategic M&A opportunities.

March 1 - Mark Smith joins ICNAF as Executive Chairman.Smith brings a wealth of expertise to this role, having founded, built and transacted over $200,000,000 USD in US Cannabis businesses over the past 7 years. His capabilities include extensive industry start-up and scaling experience, strong financial orientation and experience operating in highly regulated markets including Colorado, Nevada and Michigan. Mr. Smith is an experienced and proven Cannabis entrepreneur with a track record of building enduring industry brands while leveraging operational scale. Mr. Smith has been actively involved in developing best-in-class brands such as Cannapunch, Highly Edible, Dutch Girl and Nordic Goddess (all of which were acquired by AYR Wellness Inc. formerly, AYR Strategies Inc. and Cannabis Strategies Acquisition Corp.) as well as developing a chain of dispensaries with his team members (his family) called Tumbleweed.
“What has attracted me to this venture is the talent and energy of the Icanic Brands team, predominately the CEO’s vision to leverage the Ganja Gold family of brands and attract additional acquisition partners. You can’t put a price on human capital and his energy and exuberance has been a missing ingredient in most cannabis companies who are not builders of businesses. We will be builders,” says Mr. Smith.

OrganiGram Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: OGI) CEO Gregory Engel: “Expanding Profit Margins with Product Line Innovation and Automation”

“...We continue to see dried flower and pre-rolls as the two largest categories in the Canadian rec market. And based on US legal state data, we believe they will continue to dominate the foreseeable future even as alternative product forms gain traction.”

“We continue to leverage our indoor facility and our unique three-tiered cultivation rooms. Every Edison strain benefits from being grown in one of these data-backed strain-specific grow rooms with bespoke microclimates, designed to offer a distinct flavor and aroma profile and to ensure consistent quality. Variables such as humidity, temperature and light are customized to optimize the growth, cannabinoid and terpene profile of each strain….Opportunity to scale up new genetics require a patient and deliberate process where cultivation protocols are trialed for each cultivar and adjusted through multiple grow rooms before full roll out to multiple rooms in our facility.”

“In addition to revenue upside beyond fiscal Q2, we've identified a number of opportunities which have the potential to greatly enhance gross margins...A greater proportion of our portfolio is being dedicated to higher volume SKUs, such as multipack pre-rolls and 1g vape cartridges, which attract higher margins. We continue to invest in automation to drive cost efficiencies and reduce dependence on manual labor…”
