TORONTO, ON, CANADA – Snipp Interactive Inc. (“Snipp” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: SPN; OTCPK: SNIPF), a global provider of digital marketing promotions, rebates and loyalty solutions, today announced that it has received broad interest in the Company’s solutions and its Cannabis Marketing Resource Center (“CMRC”) from FSD Pharma (FSD). FSD has now joined some of the largest licensed producers in Canada that currently use the CMRC and the technology solutions provided by Snipp.
FSD Pharma, through its wholly owned subsidiary FV Pharma, is a licensed producer of marijuana under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) having received its cultivation license on Oct. 13, 2017. Headquartered at the former Kraft plant in Cobourg, Ont., approximately an hour’s drive from Toronto, FV Pharma management’s mission is to transform the facility into the largest hydroponic indoor cannabis facility in the world. FV Pharma intends to target all legal aspects of the cannabis industry, including cultivation, processing, manufacturing, extracts, and research and development.
“As the Cannabis industry begins to scale, it becomes important to invest in best of breed software and technology solutions to enable companies like ours to sell our products across the ecosystem from seed to sale. We look forward to working with Snipp, a leader in supplier/customer activation and retention programs, to develop such programs and learn from their expertise in similar regulated industries like Pharmaceuticals, Alcohol & Tobacco,” said Anthony Durkacz, Board Member and director of FSD Pharma.
“We are very excited by the continued interest received in our CMRC. FSD is a great example of a forward-looking company that intends to run a vertically integrated business that is already thinking through the finer points of their future operating model. With the successes they have already had I am sure that our relationship is only just beginning today and will evolve along with their business needs,” said Atul Sabharwal, CEO of Snipp.
The goal of the CMRC is to help Cannabis companies hit the ground running by leveraging Snipp’s deep expertise and the flexible technology platforms the Company has engineered for highly-regulated industries, which have unique requirements compared to other consumer-oriented segments. This resource center is designed to help cannabis-related companies launch sophisticated solutions that are also legally-compliant, a very important aspect for all firms in the cannabis space. Interested cannabis companies can sign up and qualify via a simple application process that can be accessed at www.snipp.com/CMRC.
