TORONTO, Feb. 5, 2019 /CNW/ – Target Group Inc. (OTCQB: CBDY) (“Target Group” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce, that effective January 25, 2019, it has entered into an agreement to acquire Massachusetts-based CannaKorp Inc. (“CannaKorp”). CannaKorp is the holder of the patent-pending WISP™ vaporizing system.
The WISP™ is a pod-based, herbal vaporizing system that uses precisely measured, sealed and tested WISP™ Pods containing dried, ground botanicals. The WISP™ vaporizer, used together with WISP™ Pods, gives cannabis users the predictability and assurance to know what they’re inhaling with every use, without the hassle of grinding, measuring, or packing. For the rapidly evolving market of cannabis consumers who prefer vaporization, Wisp™ presents a proven method of delivery with unique bioavailability benefits and avoids the health concerns associated with the combustion of cannabis and other herbs.
Target Group is acquiring CannaKorp’s operations in the United States and Canada. The acquisition will facilitate Target Group’s expansion of cannabis operations, and position the Company’s brand portfolio for global distribution. Target Group will continue executing its global expansion strategy, which is focused on acquiring and developing quality cannabis brands and solidifying long-term growth and stability in vital markets across the globe.
“The acquisition of CannaKorp will enable Target Group to enter all legal cannabis markets around the world, and to develop a centralized distribution channel for the WISP™ Vaporizer system, including centralized WISP™ Pod production. This acquisition also enables Target Group to provide the WISP™ and its WISP™ Pod technology to mainstream medical and recreational consumers, offering unprecedented variety through a break-through, consumer appliance experience that’s clean, convenient, consistent and easy to use.”, said Rubin Schindermann, Chief Executive Officer for Target Group.
Target Group Inc has identified a significant opportunity for growth within the wellness sector. Combining WISP™ natural herbal botanical pods with CBD (Cannabidiol), will allow WISP™ to develop a range of proprietary blends that will be available for sale within the broader American mass market immediately.
