Report Highlights:

  • Large Market Opportunity
    CBD pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals is one of the fasted growing sectors in the legal cannabis industry. Clinical research studies have demonstrated that CBD nutraceuticals have the potential to treat arthritis, MS, chronic pain, PTSD, depression, epilepsy and a myriad of other illnesses and disorders. The North American legal cannabis market stood at ~$7 billion in 2016, with strong growth prospects. The market is expected to reach ~$22 billion by 2020, representing a CAGR of 25%. Eight states in the US have legalized the use of recreational marijuana (cannabis), while 29 states allow marijuana to be used for medicinal purpose. We believe favorable regulatory environment will provide further tailwind to ETST. However, recent stance by DEA that it considers CBD as a Schedule 1 substance has created some overhang.

  • Strong Product Pipeline to Fuel Growth                                                     
    The product pipeline remains robust with series of CBD based nutraceutical, supplements as well pharmaceutical products anticipated to be launched in 2017 and early 2018. The pipeline comprises three sports supplements to be launched in 2017, two CBD based pharmaceuticals drugs to be launched in 1Q/2Q18, new e-liquid and edible gummies from it’s newly form subsidiary to be launched 3Q/2017, and three patent pending CBD based nutraceuticals to be launched by the end of the calendar year 2017. 

  • New Product Launches to Provide Fillip to Revenues                                
    The recent launch of new flavored CBD oil (Orange Blossom), organic chocolate CBD line, and pet CBD is expected to boost revenues this year. The initial sales of organic chocolates developed in partnership with Karmavore Superfood have been selling rapidly with great excitement and feedback from store owners and customers. The sample test studies conducted by ETST point to Orange Blossom being the best tasting CBD oil available, and the company foresee it being a huge hit. 

  • New Strategic Partnerships and Aggressive Marketing Push to Yield Strong Order Flow                                                                                    
    The strategic partnerships with Karmavore Superfood, Forzagen, and Smart Medicines will help ETST to diversify product offerings and accelerate entry in new markets. ETST is aggressively spending on marketing via presence in high profile magazines (Natural Awakenings), web portals (MassRoots), and one of the tow only CBD companies recommended by the Institute of Natural Healing (INH) for cancer. We believe these initiatives will help ETST reach more users, gain major brand recognition, and build early demand for its innovative new products.

  • Initiate Coverage with a Price Target of $4.12                                         
    We see ETST as a high risk and high reward play on the burgeoning legal cannabis and hemp industry, targeting the fastest growing sub segment (hemp derived CBD). The target of $4.12 assumes that the company is successful in executing its growth strategy revolving around new product launches, strategic partnerships and aggressive marketing campaigns. Key risk include any adverse regulatory stance that could materially damage company growth prospects.
