FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary 

Canada's Cannabis industry continues its rapid ascent into the billion dollar valuation as legalization has allowed the market to flourish beyond even the most optimistic projections. Analysts are not projecting the Canadian market could be worth
more than $500 billion sooner rather than later. There are a number of companies moving to Canada for operations, aiming to capture shares of the emerging and developing market while the market just to the south in the United States begins to wake up in its own right. As a whole, optimism surrounding legal cannabis will not be hard to come by anytime soon as revenues continue to compound on an annual basis. Active Companies from around the market with current developments include: Body and Mind Inc. (CSE:BAMM) (OTC: BMMJ), Aphria Inc. (NYSE:APHA) (TSX:APHA), Aleafia Health Inc. (TSX-V:ALEF) (OTC:ALEAF), Namaste Technologies Inc. (TSX-V:N) (OTC:NXTTF), Origin House (CSE:OH) (OTC:ORHOF).

Body and Mind Inc. (CSE:BAMM.CN) (OTCPK:BMMJ) BREAKING NEWS: Body and Mind is pleased to report record testing results from the most recent harvest in Nevada.

The company has received testing results from NVCAN Laboratory detailing THC content of the recently harvested Hardcore OG strain at 30.5 % THC.

"Body and Mind has been recognized as a premium quality cultivator since we started growing and producing medical cannabis roughly 4 years ago," stated Robert Hasman, a director at BaM. "Our dried flower strains typically achieve testing in the mid twenty per cent THC range and contains strong terpene profiles. While THC is only one measure of cannabis quality, this achievement has received very positive feedback from dispensaries and customers. This record result is an indication of our deep experience combined and efficiencies from our completed Phase II renovation."

The company completed Phase II renovation to improve efficiency and increase cultivation space in early 2018. The first harvest from the increased Phase II space has been completed and will be sold in November. The company has completed the transition to a perpetual harvest system which produces dried flower on a consistent basis and reduces costs throughout the cultivation process.

Body and Mind edibles continue to be popular items and the company has increased the product offerings based on feedback from buyers and customers. Infused pretzel bites with caramel and chocolate are one of the more popular edibles and additional options including peppermint and white chocolate will be available shortly. Body and Mind will be relaunching the popular infused beef jerky edibles with flavours with a choice of Teriyaki and Siracha flavors. The company has commenced manufacturing LucidMood pens and is in the process of finalizing the production process. Sales of LucidMood vape pens are anticipated throughout Nevada in early December.
