PALM BEACH, Florida, November 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

A constant

and continued growth of legal cannabis throughout North America is leading to expanded operations and production of new products, as well as solid stock performance as the industry continues to earn lofty revenue forecasts
from analysts. ArcView, a leading research group for the legal marijuana industry, recently reported legal cannabis, hemp and marijuana sales soared in North America by 34% last year, and they're slated to grow by an average of 26% annually through 2021. That type of growth appears to be enough to attract investors to marijuana stocks such as: MYM Nutraceuticals Inc. (OTC: MYMMF) (CSE: MYM), Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX: WEED) (OTC: TWMJF), Aurora Cannabis Inc. (TSX: ACB) (OTC: ACBFF), Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA), Terra Tech Corp. (OTC: TRTC).

MYM Nutraceuticals Inc. (OTCQB: MYMMF) (CSE: MYM.CN) is pleased to announce that the Laval Project is on schedule for completion on December 15th, 2017. MYM will then be submitting on confirmation of readiness video and Standard Operating Procedures for Cultivation to Health Canada. All underground plumbing is complete, HVAC installation is underway and next week the storage vault will be completed. All the walls of the production rooms are insulated and have the bullet proof windows installed. MYM has completed the grow equipment purchase order and was able to cut the projected costs in half. Grow equipment will arrive in 10 days to be installed. Read this and more news for MYM Nutraceuticals at: http://www.marketnewsupdates.com/news/mymmf.html

In parallel, MYM's mega project 'Weedon' has been progressing rapidly with engineering land studies completed and the Health Canada application is progressing rapidly. The Weedon processing and packaging, distribution plant design has been completed and final implementation on the greenhouse design of the first phase of 300,000 sqft is close to completion. MYM is currently going through the process to acquire a 'Distribution and Dealers Import Export license' application with Health Canada, which will open up worldwide markets for MYM.

"Demand for cannabis is growing worldwide and with MYM actively investigating all opportunities in each sector of the cannabis industry, it will develop MYM into a complete Global seed-to-sale company," said Rob Gietl, Chief Executive Officer. "MYM is working to open up cannabis distribution channels globally to accelerate our growth. Our Weedon project alone has 329 acres to expand production on. As recreational cannabis opens in more markets and as global markets expand; we plan on being ahead of the curve and have supply chains ready."
