Deloitte's report estimates the Canadian market will be worth at least $5B in sales in 2018. Tom Adams, Editor-in-Chief at Arcview Market Research and Principal Analyst at BDS Analytics explained, "Our data shows positive indicators across the board for the legal cannabis industry, in North America and around the globe... The passage of the 2016 ballot initiatives and continued maturation of the existing Adult-Use markets are the primary drivers of the growth this year. That's nothing compared to what we can expect in 2018 and beyond from Nevada's tourism, and California and Canada planning to launch Adult-Use sales in 2018."

"We're thrilled to have strategic partners in Aphria and Koicha Partners," said Trent Kitsch, CEO of DOJA. "Once the merger with Tokyo Smoke goes through, this strategic investment will strengthen Hiku, financially as well as through its brand recognition and product and market reach. Expanding Hiku's retail footprint, targeting provinces allowing private cannabis retail, and building a portfolio of recognizable consumer brands and products will be key differentiators for Hiku."
Upon completion of the merger and formation of Hiku, a new Board of Advisors will be appointed, with expert leadership in retail, finance, cannabis and branding. The first such appointment is Canadian retail maven Joe Mimran . Mr. Mimran, a fashion designer and entrepreneur, has launched and ran numerous iconic fashion brands including Club Monaco and Joe Fresh.
"I strongly believe that Hiku will be the market leader in recreational cannabis, at the critical intersection of brand and retail," commented Mr. Mimran. "Their focus on quality and customer experience matched with a keen eye for aesthetic has long been the hallmark of successful retail in Canada…"
