(CSE: TTT; OTC: TTTSF) (“TruTrace” or the “Company”), which has developed the first integrated blockchain platform that registers and tracks intellectual property for the cannabis industry, announced that the two companies have signed a letter of intent (“LOI”) to establish a strategic working relationship.

Shivom anticipates significant opportunities to collaborate with TruTrace and its partners to provide clinical research opportunities, medical insights and personalized healthcare products to consumers and patients within the global cannabis ecosystem.”
“Shivom has developed some very interesting technology that combines genomics, cryptography and AI, and we are excited to begin collaborating with them,” said TruTrace CEO, Robert Galarza. “We plan to explore development and integration opportunities to advance clinical research, and bring greater transparency, insights and viability to the legal medical and recreational cannabis industry.”
