Pre-Public Hempsana Moving Quickly in Cannabis Derivatives Market
May 7th, 2021
News, Top Story
Widely hailed as Cannabis 2.0, the current phase of growth in the legal cannabis market is fueled by cannabis-derived products based on oils, distillates, and isolates. These extracts contain various active ingredients, or cannabinoids, like CBD, THC, and rare cannabinoids such as CBN, CBG and Delta-8 THC. You may have noticed the explosion of CBD products in health food, grocery, and even convenience stores. According to Grandview Research, the global CBD market was valued at $2.8 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a 21.2% CAGR over the next several years. It’s a vast opportunity in its infancy, and all of it depends on the extraction and processing of quality base ingredients from the cannabis plant.
Hempsana Inc. recognizes the opportunity and is moving quickly to become a major global player in the world of cannabis derivatives. The company has licenses and approvals in place both in Canada and in the European Union, an EU-GMP compliant extraction, production, and distribution facility, and several contracts already active. Helmed by a diverse and experienced executive team, Hempsana is poised to go public in the very near future and continues to expand its presence across the derivatives market.
Not Just CBD
After decades of effective prohibition on both the consumption of and research into the cannabis plant, the science of cannabis is starting to hit its stride. Over 100 cannabinoids have been identified, going far beyond the widely-known CBD and THC. There are many research studies and clinical trials of the potential benefits of cannabinoids, and scientists have identified a natural system in the human body that interacts with them called the endocannabinoid system. The US Food and Drug Administration went so far as to publish a brief encouraging and supporting cannabinoid research and drug development, a clear sign the science of cannabis has hit the mainstream.
How does all of this research and validation tie into Hempsana and its mission to be the most trusted name in cannabis derivatives? First, researchers and pharmaceutical companies certainly comprise a target market for Hempsana’s cannabinoid derivatives. They need something pure and clean to study, and Hempsana can provide. Second, the scientific momentum is fueling acceptance of the plant as a viable alternative to some more traditional products, widening Hempsana’s playing field. Perhaps most importantly, research has uncovered over 100 cannabinoids, each one with the potential to benefit people. Each of these compounds requires extraction and purification, giving Hempsana market opportunities far beyond the common CBD and THC array of products.
To be clear, Hempsana is not ignoring CBD and THC but rather sees an opportunity to be an early mover with cannabinoids such as CBN and Delta-8 THC. In Hempsana’s native Canada, there are currently a couple of major players in the cannabis extraction world. Both MediPharm Labs Corp. (TSX: LABS) (OTCQX: MEDIF) (FSE: MLZ) and The Valens Company (TSX: VLNS) (OTCQX: VLNCF) are mostly focused on THC and CBD extracts, and rightfully so. Hempsana firmly believes two things. One, the market growth and potential for the global THC and CBD products is very large and allows room for competitors. Two, there is tremendous value in developing lesser-known cannabinoid products.
Hempsana was founded in October 2018 in Toronto. The company received confirmation to extract CBD oil from industrial hemp in Hungary, EU in February 2019. This was quickly followed by a Health Canada Industrial Hemp License in August 2019, and the Health Canada Standard Processing License in May 2020 for its Canadian operations. Hempsana’s wholly owned 8,000 square foot EU GMP compliant facility located in Goderich, Canada, was fully completed and commissioned in Q4 2020, with commercial production launched in December 2020.
The Hungarian component is a key to future growth, providing entry into the lucrative EU market. The Canadian EU-GMP compliant facility was also built with international export capabilities in mind, as those requirements are generally considered the most stringent in the world. From a facility standpoint, the table was set in the first two years of Hempsana’s existence.
Since its inception, the company has executed a number of processing and offtake agreements, with current production of cannabinoid derivatives set for over 27,000 kg of biomass extraction. Hempsana offers three basic types of ingredients: crude full-spectrum oil, full-spectrum high concentrate distillate, and active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) grade isolate. These ingredients form the foundation of products ranging from topical creams, to foods, to pharmaceutical drug candidates.
Hempsana sells ingredients wholesale to qualified buyers that formulate and manufacture their own products. The company also offers more comprehensive services that manage refinement, and include purification, remediation, and even formulation services to cannabis companies without those capabilities. Hempsana also offers white label services, partnering with clients to take products from the idea stage all the way to a ready-to-sell package.
Consider this all an introduction to a new player in the global cannabinoid derivatives market. Hempsana recently announced a business combination agreement that sets the stage for its near-term go-public event, which will introduce the company to new funding sources to help fuel its growth plans. Hempsana is currently in the process of partnering with national brands in Canada, EU, and Asia to create sales verticals in key growth areas including the health supplement, topical cream, vape, and edibles markets. It’s an exciting time for the people at Hempsana, and interested investors are encouraged to keep an eye on this space for further developments.
