Major recent developments at Namaste Technologies
There have been a number of notable developments at Namaste in recent months that could benefit Namaste Technologies stock. Here is a highlight of some of those key developments:
Namaste expands its product offering with distribution agreements with Phyto and Trec
Namaste’s home country Canada last month expanded its cannabis market with the legalization of a range of new cannabis products for adult-use. These include cannabis edibles, drinks, and smoking devices or vape pens. With the newly legalized cannabis products, Canada’s adult-use cannabis market is on course to double in size this year to C$2.4 billion.
In December, Namaste added a range of products from leading cannabis brand Phyto to its offering. Namaste said it would carry Phyto on its CannMart online marketplace. Phyto is an established cannabis brand, so Namaste counts on its strong product recognition to fuel its sales in the expanded Canadian adult-use marijuana market.
Before the Phyto deal, Namaste partnered with Trec Brands to distribute its premium cannabis products in Ontario and Saskatchewan provinces. Namaste will sell Trec products under the WINK cannabis brand and it said the arrangement will boost its sales. The Namaste-Trec partnership also targets the expanded adult-use cannabis market in Canada.
Namaste secures cannabis supply contracts with Ontario and Saskatchewan provincial governments
Namaste not only does business with private entities but government agencies as well. In November, the company secured wholesale cannabis supply contracts from Ontario and Saskatchewan provincial government agencies, adding to its existing business with the British Columbia provincial government.
“Working directly with the provincial governments represents a significant market opportunity for us,” commented Meni Morim, CEO of Namaste.
Namaste invests in chocolate maker Choklat
The expanded adult-use cannabis market in Canada has opened the door for makers of edibles and beverages to enter the scene with cannabis-infused versions of their products. To maximize its opportunity in Canada’s expanded adult-use cannabis market, Namaste recently invested in chocolate maker Choklat, which is considering making cannabis-infused chocolates.
Namaste already owns 49% of equity interest in Choklat and is now on course to tighten its grip on the business following the October financing transaction.
Namaste Technologies stock expanded product offerings, contracts with government agencies, and investment in businesses like Choklat that want to tap into Canada’s recreational cannabis market, position it well to capitalize on the cannabis boom. The stock currently trades at $0.30 currently but has potential to return more than 1,200% on its way back to its all-time high of about $4.0 a share.

Forget APHA and ACB, Buy GTBIF and TCNNF
There are a lot of misconceptions going on when it comes to US legalization. Many investors are buying Aphria (APHA) and Aurora Cannabis (ACB) hoping to bank on what’s happening in the US. However, they are Canadian Licensed Producers and have no business in the US. Investors are buying them because they trade on the major exchanges, but that is the wrong move. The correct move is to buy the US multi-state operators like Green Thumb Industries (GTBIF) and Trulieve Cannabis (TCNNF).

There’s also the prospect of a more pot-friendly White House with President-elect Joe Biden. Vice Presidential Candidate Kamala Harris said at the debate a Biden administration would decriminalize marijuana at a federal level and expunge criminal records of people with marijuana-related offenses.
