Lotus Ventures Inc (CSE:J)(Frankfurt: LV9), announces its initial product information, expected to be sold in the second half of 2019. The Company has imported 3,500 seeds, 229 strains and 75 live plants into the facility. These form the basis of the Lotus catalogue. We also anticipate growing proprietary strains which can be licensed to other licensed producers or used in various partnerships.

Even though legalization for recreational use took effect in October 2018, the sector remains constrained by the availability of high-quality cannabis. The Lotus product line is targeted to the higher end recreational segment of the market. Like the wine or spirits business, the high-end of the market commands much higher financial margins.


The following strains will become recognizable by the discerning cannabis consumer and are expected to be grown during the initial ramp-up stage: Goji OG, Kalifornia, Space Cake, MAC, Ancient’s Breath, Soul Food, Purple Urkle, Northern Lights #5 and proprietary variations of Hashplant.

“We have a very large and diverse list of cultivars to select from and our team has experience with each live plant we’ve imported, so we feel very confident with our starting lineup.” said COO, Carl Correia.

Appointment: Lotus announces Maurice Creagh replacing Gary Mathiesen as CFO. Gary Mathiesen stepped down after Lotus received its Standard Cultivation license, and the Company wishes him all the best moving forward. Maurice Creagh, a long-term construction executive and an early investor in Lotus, was a co-founder of Ventana Construction which has grown to annual construction volumes in the range of $300 to $600 million. Now semi-retired, Maurice Creagh continues to be active as an advisor on development and construction to municipalities, developers and investors. Maurice has been a director of several companies and a director of the Independent Contractors and Business Association of BC (ICBA) from 1998 to 2006.
