Namaste Technologies (CSE:N; OTCMKTS:NXTTF) announced a deal with PharmaCann to invest and obtain a 10 percent equity position in PharmaCann.

As quoted in the press release:


PharmaCann currently operates with existing licenses to import, export and wholesale medical cannabis issued by the Australian Government Department of Health. Namaste’s investment in PharmaCann will be used by PharmaCann to proceed with its application to further secure a cultivation license. The Australian market represents a major component of Namaste’s current revenue, which is derived in hardware sales, and remains a primary focus of Namaste’s strategic initiatives as it looks to target the Australian medical cannabis industry. Namaste believes PharmaCann’s import, export and wholesale licenses bring immediate value to the Company and believes that  PharmaCann has the ability to obtain a cultivation license which will further enhance Namaste’s ability to penetrate global markets. In addition to Namaste’s strategic investment in PharmaCann, the Terms Sheet outlines additional business ventures between both parties as outlined below.

Namaste remains committed to focusing on opportunities and collaborations with PharmaCann in the Australian market, as it represents an important part of the Company’s growth strategy moving forward. As the Canadian market progresses closer towards full legalization, Namaste is of the opinion that additional markets, such as Australia, will provide Namaste with a more diverse market presence by allowing the Company to continue leveraging its global database of cannabis users. This strategy represents an opportunity for Namaste to expand its global ecommerce platform into other progressive markets, as it looks to replicate the success it has achieved in the Canadian market.
