Advantages of a standard processing license
The advantages of the Standard Processing Licence are that it authorizes all the activities of those permitted under the previous Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR), with the exception of growing. With the promulgation of regulations following the legalization of cannabis the medical purposes restriction has been removed and the sale of products for adult use is now permitted. This opens up a gigantic market for the company’s cannabis processing with its own product sales and trading in cannabis domestically and internationally with high-profit margins.
The company’s license for processing will also authorize related activities, including possession, transportation, research and development, storage, destruction, and the intra-industry sale of cannabis to other federal licence holders or provincially or territorially-authorized sellers.
The third source of revenue and profits is possible as the Standard Processing License permits the import and export of cannabis for medical purposes, and between cannabis licensees in Canada.
Because the company’s business model is expected to produce revenue and profits in a short time with a total investment of +/- $3.5 million, attractive returns via dividends are planned. Alternatively, the company may be sold or converted into a public company in the future.
