Cannabis-focused research and development company The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX: TGOD) (OTCQX: TGODF) is focused on becoming the global leader in delivering premium organic cannabis solutions to enhance the lives of people around the world. If 2018’s accomplishments are any indication of what’s to come, then TGOD is well on its way to realizing its strategic vision, as TGOD Director and CEO Brian Athaide stated in a news release (http://ibn.fm/Pfc4u).
“2018 has been a pivotal year for the company. The accomplishments our team has made have been nothing shy of incredible,” Athaide noted in the release. “The company has raised substantial capital and grown the team with the addition of deep expertise and exceptionally skilled professionals to both management and our board. We are very excited for 2019 and we remain focused on delivering on the company’s operational plans of producing and bringing to market high quality, premium certified organic cannabis.”
Recent company highlights include recognition of its redesigned website, TGOD.ca, which received two prestigious Horizon Interactive Awards in the global categories of ‘Best Responsive / Mobile Website (Gold)’ and ‘Best E-commerce Website (Bronze)’. The awards indicate much more than a job well done, according to Athaide (http://ibn.fm/6e9ig).
“Having launched in only December 2018, the fact that we are already receiving awards is remarkable. This recognition showcases the importance of not only building a leading digital platform for the cannabis industry, but a platform that competes across all industries,” Athaide added.
The new website focuses on driving awareness of TGOD’s position as Canada’s only 100 percent supplier of certified organic cannabis while facilitating direct medical product purchases for patients that provide medical documentation that’s confirmed by a health care practitioner. In March, the first group of patients enrolled in TGOD’s Growers’ Circle received access to purchase the company’s first certified-organic cannabis strain through the website (http://ibn.fm/sv3S6). The Growers’ Circle launch is a limited production rollout of TGOD’s premium product, allowing the company to perfect its distribution ahead of its production ramp-up and scaled rollout this year. Early feedback has been extremely positive, the company reports.
TGOD cannabis is grown in living soil without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides, and it is certified-organic by ECOCERT and Pro-cert, both of which are pre-eminent global certification bodies (http://ibn.fm/Oe6d2). Hill & Knowlton consumer research confirmed that 60 percent of medical cannabis patients prefer certified-organic product. TGOD flower is packaged in recyclable glass jars and speaks to the company’s product quality, sustainability and regenerative philosophy.
“These global recognitions provide validation that we have built a scalable best-in-class website that works for patients, organic enthusiasts and investors,” said Andrew Pollock, TGOD’s vice president of marketing.
Another highlight is the company’s recent entry into a multiyear extraction services contract with Valens GroWorks Corp. (CSE: VGW) (OTCQB: VGWCF), a licensed provider of cannabis products and services specializing in various proprietary extraction, distillation, cannabinoid isolation and purification technologies. The agreement underscores the company’s focus on meeting a growing need to furnish high-quality, premium organic cannabis products to Canadian consumers, according to a news release (http://ibn.fm/C0jf6).
With a funded capacity of 219,000 kilograms, TGOD is uniquely positioned between the medical and recreational cannabis industries and offers a compelling opportunity for perceptive investors. TGOD is constructing 1.64 million square feet of facilities across Ontario, Quebec, Denmark and Jamaica and continues to develop strategic partnerships around the globe.
