The Cannabis Industry

  • The hemp/cannabis industry is fragmented, immature, and in many cases, poorly managed.

  • As this industry matures and becomes mainstream, many businesses will have to contend with an environment in which they could not currently survive, and pressures they have never faced.

  •  It is a strong belief that broader legalization and consumer acceptance of hemp/cannabis and all of its related products is underway. The entry of large investment groups and significant corporate players will also represent a major paradigm shift in the space.

  • Beyond the medical reasons, there are an overwhelming number of economic, social, and political factors driving the growth of this marketplace.

NewLeaf Brands Inc. (CSE: NLB) (OTC: NLBIF) (FSE: 0NF) (“NewLeaf Brands” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has signed a non-binding Letter of Intent (“LOI”) with Mindleap Health Inc. (“Mindleap”), dated May 20, 2020, pursuant to which NewLeaf Brands will acquire, by way of share exchange, 100% of all of the issued and outstanding securities of Mindleap, an arm’s length company.

Mindleap is an advanced digital health platform that helps people connect with mental health specialists that can empower them to thrive and develop habits for a healthy mind. The software platform has been designed by leading psychologists and neuroscientists to improve on current telemedicine solutions and is set to launch in Q3 of 2020. Mindleap’s software development team has a proven track record in delivering software solutions on budget and on time. Mindleap’s developers have previously launched successful HIPAA compliant eHealth applications and, cumulatively, have developed over 200 software applications in the last decade.

Today, more than 300 million people suffer[1] from depression worldwide, with about 100 million of whom do not respond to available treatments. Psychedelic medicine offers the potential to revolutionize the mental health industry and is witnessing staggering growth. Mindleap is uniquely designed to meet the needs of the over 90+ psychedelic clinics and 30 million[2] underground psychedelic users. The company’s platform will allow mental health specialists to provide psychedelic aftercare along with addiction, and holistic wellness services and programs.

Mindleap Health Founder and CEO, Nikolai Vassev stated: “We have always believed in building strong alliances and are extremely pleased to begin working with the talented team at New Leaf. Their investment in Mindleap will allow us to speed up our time to market, add more advanced capabilities but most importantly will get us closer to our goal of improving access to mental health services for those that need them most.”

The Global Telemedicine Market Size[3] was valued at USD 31.46 Billion in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 19.28% until 2025. The pandemic has shown the need for virtual therapy services and it’s expected there will be over 1 billion telemedicine sessions by the end of 2020[4]. Mindleap’s innovative technology and business model strive to capture a unique and growing piece of that market.

NewLeaf Brands Director and CEO, Josh Bartch, stated: “Upon diving into Mindleap’s unique approach to the mental health space and seeing their innovative technology we were immediately blown away. Mindleap fills a much needed void in the marketplace that we see as an incredibly important aspect of the overall success of  modern mental health treatments. Mindleap’s unique focus on psychedelic aftercare, addiction and holistic wellness fits well with our strategy and we are excited for them to join the NewLeaf family.”

Pursuant to the LOI, NewLeaf Brands will acquire 100% of the issued and outstanding shares in the capital of Mindleap in exchange for CAD $3,500,000, payable in common shares in the capital of the Company at a deemed price per share equal to CAD $0.55, as of the date of signing the LOI.  NewLeaf Brands shall also advance CAD $500,000 in direct investment into Mindleap upon closing of the transaction and CAD $500,000 before, or on, September 1, 2020.

The Company will pay a finder’s fee for the transaction. The Company will look to close the transaction following the completion of the due diligence investigations. Closing is subject to definitive documentation and applicable regulatory approvals.

May 19, 2020 - NewLeaf Brands Wholly-owned Subsidiary, Mydecine Group is Working to Build an Ecosystem of Resources Targeted at Unlocking the Potential of Fungi for Human Wellness

NewLeaf Brands Inc. (CSE: NLB) (OTC: NLBIF) (FSE: 0NF) (“NewLeaf Brands” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Mydecine Group (“Mydecine”) is working to build an ecosystem of resources targeted at unlocking the potential of fungi for human wellness. Through a combination of traditional medicine knowledge and modern scientific inquiry, Mydecine strives to bring the public products that will aid them in their journey to personal wellness.

Core to this potential are psilocybin producing mushrooms. In recent times, psilocybin and other tryptamines have begun to experience a well-deserved upsurge in medical interest; Mydecine believes in nurturing this potential. Utilizing various research partnerships, university collaborations and public advocacy groups, Mydecine has a clear path, leading to safe and effective use of fungal compounds for human health.

“With the growing public interest in mushroom applications for human health, Mydecine’s lab in Denver stands ready to provide the consumers with the information and innovation they desire,” proclaimed Rob Roscow, CSO, NewLeaf Brands, Inc.

Fungi contain a wealth of compounds provided to us by nature and Mydecine is more than excited to announce the build out of a specialty mycology lab in Denver, Colorado. The lab will serve Mydecine’s needs for the study, selection and cultivation of valuable and rare fungal products and will incorporate state of the art analytical chemistry, molecular biology, next-gen sequencing, and tissue culture. Mydecine believes that this potential in fungi is barely tapped in our society and that this lab will facilitate its efforts to bring the highest quality fungal food and wellness products to the public.

The capabilities of this lab will serve as a cornerstone for Mydecine’s research and development efforts. Additionally, work at this lab will both enable and support numerous research partnerships. The lab build out will allow immediate inquiry into improved production of mushroom products as functional foods, while supporting licensed research partners in the parallel study of psychedelic mushroom compounds for treatment of mental health and other serious conditions.

He is able to take the ordinary and turn it into the extraordinary. From our time spent together at Ebbu, I was able to watch Rob uncover a new world of cannabis research and experiment with the genetic chemotype profile of the plant that nobody has ever been able to do before in history. Not only is Rob an incredible geneticist, but his vast knowledge of multiple arts of science makes him the perfect person to be titled as the CSO of Mydecine as we go down this new path of mycology to discover the infinite exciting possibilities that fungi has to offer.”

May 7, 2020 - Newleaf Brands Inc. Signs Definitive Agreement to Acquire 37.5% of Trellis Holdings And Comments on Initiative Petition 34 to Legalize Psilocybin Therapy in Oregon

NewLeaf Brands Inc. (CSE: NLB) (OTC: NLBIF) (FSE: 0NF) (“NewLeaf Brands” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has signed a definitive agreement (the “Agreement’) dated May 5, 2020 with Trellis Holdings Oregon, LLC (“Trellis”) to acquire 37.5% of the issued and outstanding share capital of Trellis Holdings Oregon Op LLC (“Trellis”) from David Joshua Bartch and Benjamin Martch (the “Vendors”) by way of a share exchange (the “Transaction”), as previously announced on February 6th, 2020.

Trellis Holdings Oregon, LLC has been successfully operated since 2015 by a group of cannabis industry veterans and cultivates thousands of pounds of high-quality cannabis per year, including strains that exceed 30% in THC content, and has 7 figure revenues that continue to grow significantly year over year. Trellis holds various licenses with the OLCC in the state of Oregon and operates in both the medical and recreational cannabis markets, maintaining an 11-acre recreational cultivation property in Southern Oregon and operating a medical and recreational cannabis dispensary in Portland, Oregon.

“We announced the LOI to acquire a position in Trellis some time back and have been working diligently to close the transaction,” commented Joshua Bartch, CEO of NewLeaf Brands. “This transaction is significant in a number of ways for the company. Not only does Trellis bring a wealth of assets, potential revenue and key personnel but the crossover between the cannabis space and the mycology space is immense.”

Mr. Bartch continued, “Through Initiative #34, Oregon is poised to be the first territory on the planet to not just decriminalize, but actually legalize, psychedelic mushrooms in some capacity. Given that Trellis operates its cultivation in Sothern Oregon on an 11-acre property that is already owned, debt-free, by NewLeaf Brands, the Company has a unique opportunity to share the land and staff for a potential future mycology cultivation space and laboratory.” He concluded, “With recent donations to the tune of $1,000,000 towards the Petition from prominent companies such as Dr. Bronner’s Soap, the likelihood of the initiative becoming a reality is beginning to look truly promising.”

According to the campaign for the initiative, “IP 34 gives those suffering from depression, anxiety, and anyone that would benefit, a new treatment option by creating a licensed and supervised psilocybin-assisted therapy system. Rigorous studies at leading medical research institutions such as Johns Hopkins, UCLA, and NYU show that psilocybin therapy is uniquely effective in treating depression, anxiety, and addiction. This promising research has prompted experts in Oregon to advance IP 34 for the November ballot — IP 34 will create a licensed psilocybin therapy program so Oregonians have the best therapeutic options available.”

The Company has entered into the Agreement to acquire 37.5% of the issued and outstanding share capital of Trellis, (the “Acquisition”). Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company will purchase 37.5% of the issued and outstanding share capital of Trellis in exchange for 28,000,000 common shares in the capital of the Company (the “Shares”) at a deemed value of $0.106 per Share representing, in the aggregate, 33.20% of the issued and outstanding Shares on a non-diluted and partially diluted basis for an aggregate gross proceeds of $2,968,000 CAD ($2,250,000 USD). The transaction does not constitute a change of control.

April 23, 2020 - NewLeaf Brands Signs Letter of Intent to Purchase Arizona Based CBD Conglomerate Vida Concepts, LLC.

NewLeaf Brands Inc. (CSE: NLB) (OTC: NLBIF) (FSE: 0NF) (“NewLeaf Brands” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has signed a share swap agreement with Levee Street Holdings, LLC (“Levee Street”) to purchase 50% of Levee Street for $450,000 CAD in common shares. Greg Kassanoff founded Levee Street to infiltrate the “alternative” beverage space, which includes CBD products. This share swap agreement with Levee Street will include the distribution of We Are Kured, LLC, ReLyfe Brands, LLC, TeaLief Brands, LLC and Drink Fresh Water, LLC  products.

Earlier in 2018, the Farm Bill restored industrial hemp to nationwide legal production for the first time since World War II.

Greg Kassanoff is the founder of Levee Street Holdings, LLC, Pioneer Wine & Spirits, LLC, & CEO of Mexicor Pioneer Wine & Spirits (“MPWS”). MPWS has thousands of existing retail and restaurant relationships throughout the state of Texas with infrastructure to support beverage distribution throughout the entire state. Mr. Kassanoff is also the founder of Pioneer Louisiana, LLC which has a large distribution footprint covering the state of Louisiana.

“Levee Street is excited to partner with NewLeaf Brands creating a vertically integrated distribution company and giving us the comfort to build brands as true partners.” – Greg Kassanoff – Founder, Levee Street Holding, LLC

NewLeaf Brands’ leadership team will be leveraging Mr. Kassanoff’s high-level nationwide relationships with the goal of becoming a leading, nationwide CBD & non-alcohol distribution conglomerate.

“We’re extremely excited to partner with Levee Street Holdings & Greg Kassanoff. We have spent a lot of time focusing on distribution partners, but partnering with Greg will prove to be invaluable with his decades of experience, nationwide relationships and already established infrastructure in Texas & Louisiana,” said Josh Bartch – CEO, NewLeaf Brands, Inc.

Chief Executive Officer of NewLeaf Brands, Josh Bartch, commented,  “As a company it is imperative that we pay close attention to our customers and identify the best way that not only our products can be of help but also on how we can help give back and play our part.  We have seen a drastic increase in the amount of veterans that our product lines have helped in a multitude of areas they struggle with derived from their loyal and honorable service, such as help with sleeping, PTSD and of course pain management.  Roughly twenty-two Veterans in the United States alone commit suicide every single day and to me this number is staggering.  Not only are we introducing a pen specifically tailored to the men and women that have served but also we look forward to taking a chunk of the proceeds and donating it to charities that directly help our veterans.”
