Good afternoon and welcome to another episode of "Potcast" featuring cannabis news, stocks to watch as well as insights from thought leaders and experts

In today’s podcast we look at a few early announcements.

But first, Tweed, a subsidiary of Canopy Growth Corp. (TSX: WEED) (NYSE: CGC) and TerraCycle celebrated the success of the country's first and largest cannabis packaging recycling program, launched in October 2018, having achieved incredible results in its first year of operations. The program reached a significant milestone with the collection of over one million pieces of used cannabis packaging from across the nation – recycling over 22,000 pounds of plastic containers, tubes, and bottles.

"When Tweed launched the partnership with TerraCycle, it was the first recycling program of its kind for cannabis packaging. Reaching this incredible milestone of over 1,000,000 pieces collected in less than one year demonstrates the value of the program," says Mark Zekulin, CEO, Canopy Growth Corporation, Tweed's parent company. "We're committed to doubling down on our efforts to expand the program over the next year and bringing in new participants from all across Canada."

"Park benches, picnic tables, playgrounds – these are just a few examples of products that can be created from the recycled cannabis packaging collected through the Tweed | TerraCycle program," says Tom Szaky, TerraCycle CEO and Founder. "Through our mission to 'Eliminate the Idea of Waste' we've proven that solutions do exist for items that may seem difficult to recycle. Together we can reduce the environmental impact of the cannabis industry and pave the way for a greener future."

Originally launched in select Tweed, Tokyo Smoke and third-party retail stores, the Tweed | TerraCycle program has expanded across the country to now include 280 retail participants.
Below is a tally of the number of pieces collected as of August 31, 2019, broken out by province:
     Alberta - 407,695
     New Brunswick - 168,550
     Ontario - 168,545

     Manitoba - 124,850
     Saskatchewan - 51,900
     Prince Edward Island - 38,299

The program not only provides recycling solutions for Tweed branded cannabis packaging, it encourages consumers to recycle their empty cannabis packaging from any Canadian licensed producer. The program accepts any and all cannabis packaging including outer plastic packaging, inner plastic packaging, tins, tubes, plastic bottles, plastic caps, and flexible plastic bags.

Nielsen (NYSE: NSLN) and Charlotte's Web Holdings, Inc. (TSX: CWEB) (OTCQX: CWBHF), jointly announced an analytic relationship between the world's leading CBD brand with the world's leading market intelligence company. Together, Nielsen and Charlotte's Web will help guide the U.S. retail market for consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies through the evolution of the CBD space. Mirroring the changing tide happening across the U.S. retail and CPG industry, this new relationship marks an open and symbiotic relationship that is forming between the emerging CBD industry and the U.S. retail and manufacturing community.

Charlotte's Web is an industry pioneer market leader of hemp-CBD extract products. Leveraging its deep product knowledge and category vision, this new relationship will provide unprecedented visibility into market-leading trends, highlighting segments, brands and products that are resonating with consumers in the CBD market. This alliance will also provide insight into consumer attitudes, product preferences, use occasions and future intent tied to consumer interaction points within CPG categories which will help establish Charlotte's Web as thought leaders and category captains of the hemp CBD category. Collectively, this powerful suite of information will enable U.S. CPG manufacturers and retailers to more easily measure and predict the impact of hemp CBD on the CPG industry and strategize accordingly.

The announcement with Charlotte's Web comes as Nielsen steadily develops a full suite of cannabis measurement capabilities, inclusive of strategic alliances such as the one with Headset, the leading data and analytics service provider measuring and analyzing the legal Cannabis dispensary channel.

"We are thrilled to be entering a long-term partnership with Charlotte's Web, a clear pioneer in the CBD industry," said Susan Dunn, President, U.S. Sales at Nielsen. "Our mission is to work with the outstanding team at Charlotte's Web to support and accelerate their growth by applying our breadth of data, insights, tools, and analytic assets."

"This is a game changer for hemp CBD retail analytics,' said Deanie Elsner, CEO of Charlotte's Web. "As the market leader in CBD, we have an obligation to advance objective data, purchase dynamics and insights that can be levered by our retailers in the Food, Drug and Mass channels. Nielsen is a trusted industry leader who was an obvious choice as our analytics partner. They provide unbeatable data and insights which will set the stage for one source of truth for the CBD Category."

Pasha Brands Ltd. (CSE: CRFT) (OTC: CRFTFannounced that its wholly owned subsidiary, BC Craft Supply Co. Ltd., has signed a supply agreement with Waterloo, Ontario based Greenterra Cannabis.

The founders of Greenterra, Adam and Drew Anger, 30 and 24, are two brothers and successful businessmen who saw a tremendous opportunity to get into legal cannabis with a minimal investment. They completed their application using Tamra Follett's do-it-yourself standard operating procedure kit, and will be cultivating cannabis in a greenhouse using hand-mixed soil and organic inputs.

Adam has owned several companies in the trucking and transportation industries and will be operating the business side of the greenhouse, while Drew, the owner of a marketing company, will be lead cultivator.

"Adam and Drew bring a youthfulness and excitement to their business that made signing a supply agreement with them so attractive to us," said Patrick Brauckmann, Executive Chair of Pasha Brands. "They truly represent what it means to be a family-oriented business in the cannabis industry and we're excited to get their product on the shelves of retailers across the country."

With Canada's current licensed cannabis producers only able to supply an estimated 15 percent of what Canadians are consuming, Pasha is optimistic that yet another new supply agreement will help correct the cannabis supply imbalance. Each micro cultivator in Canada will be allowed to produce approximately 500 kg of cannabis per year. Canada has tens of thousands of craft producers operating in the illicit cannabis market and BC Craft is focused on helping as many small farmers transition into the regulated market as possible.

"It's hard to believe that we're breaking into this industry and turning our hobby into a business," said Adam Anger. "We're really excited to partner with a company like BC Craft because we know that they prioritize not only craft cannabis but a sense of family the same way that we do."

CannaRoyalty Corp. d/b/a Origin House (CSE: OH) (OTCQX: ORHOF) announced that its subsidiary Trichome Financial Corp. (formerly 22 Capital Corp.) (TSXV: TFC) began trading on the TSX Venture Exchange as of today under the trading symbol "TFC".

Since its inception, Trichome Financial has:
     Closed six credit transactions and signed term sheets for three other opportunities;
     Constructed a portfolio of secured loans which provide a weighted-average contractual effective cash interest yield of approximately 14.5% plus potentially meaningful upside through warrants; and
     Established a robust pipeline of near-term opportunities for capital deployment.

"Trichome Financial was established to address the lack of credit availability in the high-growth and rapidly evolving global cannabis sector. With the increasing demand for capital across the cannabis value chain and the limited supply of flexible capital, Trichome Financial identified an opportunity to address an unmet need that would provide shareholders with highly attractive returns on both an absolute and risk-adjusted basis," said Michael Ruscetta, Chief Executive Officer. "We are providers of solution capital, helping clients to capitalize on opportunities and meet the challenges of this evolving industry. As cannabis is legalized in new markets around the world and existing players mature, we believe the market for Trichome Financial's credit products will continue to grow. With the experience of our founders and management team, we are in an excellent position to capitalize on this opportunity."

48North Cannabis Corp. (TSXV:NRTHannounced that is has acquired Sackville & Co. Merchandising Ltd. a leading U.S.-based cannabis brand focused on design-forward cannabis accessories.

Drawing inspiration from art, design, music, fashion and contemporary culture, Sackville & Co. products use high-end materials like brushed gold finishes, marble, and ceramics to create chic looking grinders, rolling papers, rolling trays, bongs and other highly-coveted accessories. Catering to design-forward consumers, Sackville & Co. has redefined the smoking experience for the modern female consumer, encouraging women to celebrate their relationship with cannabis––whether at a dinner party, concert or alone in the bathtub––and to feel stylish and inspired while doing it.

Sackville & Co. founders Hayley Dineen and Lana Van Brunt bonded over their shared frustration of not being able to find design-forward cannabis products to fit their personal style. With years of experience in luxury product development, experiential marketing and business development for companies ranging from October's Very Own ("OVO") to Vivienne Westwood to VICE, Hayley and Lana have since successfully led Sackville & Co. and are pleased to be joining 48North full-time.

"48North is laser-focused on reinforcing its position as the preferred consumer cannabis brand in Canada and introducing itself to the emerging U.S marketplace. Building on the momentum of the Company's acquisition of Quill and significant supply of CBD from Iverson Family Farms, adding Sackville & Co. to the 48North family takes the Company one step closer to achieving this goal," said Alison Gordon, CEO of 48North.

"With such a like-minded vision on the future of cannabis, the decision to join with 48North was an easy one. Sackville & Co. has sought to create new and inspiring experiences in the cannabis space through design, art, fashion and music communities. As a result of the acquisition, we will now be able to expand our product offering, distribution channels, and ultimately scale our business," said Lana Van Brunt, co-founder of Sackville & Co.
