“As is key to any industry, the ancillary market poses some of the most exciting growth opportunities in the cannabis market,” said Prad Sekar, CEO of CB2 Insights.  “As we continue to strengthen our clinical arm in the United States and drive a new level of real-world evidence related to the efficacy of medical cannabis treatment, we are proud to have a solid financial foundation to drive a new level of insights to uncover the place that medical cannabis has in the traditional healthcare market.”

CB2 Insights works to help mainstream cannabis into traditional healthcare through objective, real-world evidence driven from its wholly-owned clinical arm.  With more than 300,000 patient interactions to-date, the company is able to apply standard data collection protocols and track the efficacy of cannabis treatments in a way currently not available within the cannabis industry today.  The Company owns and operates the largest and longest-running, multi-state medical cannabis evaluation and education center serving 12 states across the US.  The Company has an aggressive medical cannabis clinic consolidation strategy and anticipates further announcements in this regard in the coming quarters.

Sekar continued, “As the market turns its focus to investments in ancillary cannabis services, we are committed to our growth strategies across the US and assessing international markets.  In addition, we are focused on the development of new predictive analytics tools that the industry urgently needs to bring about a greater maturation of insights to producers, retailers, clinicians, patients, consumers, educational institutions and regulatory bodies.  I sincerely appreciate our international team for their dedication and outstanding execution that has helped CB2 Insights reach this milestone.”
