David Sutton on innovation in the cannabis market and what’s next for NanoSphere Health Sciences
“Listing in Canada gave us enormous exposure as well as helped us identify a partner, a licensed producer, there that could help us expand our exposure to the cannabis market. Canada is on the forefront of doing this on a global basis. It made sense to look to Canada and to Delta 9 as providing that avenue…They are very innovative in how they are growing. They are using new technologies to ensure a better product. They are using these pots. We saw their innovation and our innovation in how to deliver cannabis as a match made in heaven.” States David Sutton, President and Director of NanoSphere Health Sciences Inc. (CSE: NSHS), in an interview with InvestorIntel Corp. CEO Tracy Weslosky.
Tracy Weslosky: David we know that InvestorIntel audience members like the jockey. It is a very competitive market out there. You have quite the reputation for actually turning transformed concepts into profitable businesses. You selected NanoSphere. Can you tell us why?
David Sutton: Absolutely. This technology has disruptive capabilities in multiple industries. When you have a piece of technology that can do that, the potential for profitability and revenue growth is phenomenal.
Tracy Weslosky: David, in addition to selecting NanoSphere as a candidate you want to turn into a profitable business, are there any benefits on listing and being based in Canada? How does this Delta 9 fit into this program?
David Sutton: Listing in Canada gave us enormous exposure as well as helped us identify a partner, a licensed producer, there that we could expand our exposure to the cannabis market. Canada is on the forefront of doing this on a global basis. It made sense to look to Canada and to Delta 9 as providing that avenue.
Tracy Weslosky: David I obviously do not have my head around Delta 9. Can you tell us a little bit more about this competitive technology?
David Sutton: They are very innovative in how they are growing. They are using new technologies to ensure a better product. They are using these pots. We saw their innovation and our innovation in how to deliver cannabis as a match made in heaven.
Tracy Weslosky: Speaking of Canada and, of course, North America, you just recently announced that you began production through one of your vertical companies in California. Can you give us some highlights of this deal please?
David Sutton: Absolutely. The company is actually called Vertical Companies. Why we selected them to license our technology to is, as the name suggests, they are vertically integrated from grow all the way through distribution, which is key in the California market as they require a third-party distribution to get your products into retail outlets.
Tracy Weslosky: You have just moved into Indiana with your NanoSerum Hemp solution. This sounded kind of fun. Can you tell us a little bit more about this?
David Sutton: This is our hemp-based CBD product that can now be shipped across state borders. Has a lot of the similar benefits that our other products do, but now we have a wider audience. Not everyone likes to get high every day, but everybody likes to take a dietary supplement or receive the benefits of CBD every day. It is an enormous market that we are launching in the Midwest to start.
Tracy Weslosky: The ten story vantage point for NanoSphere really has to do with your patent for the nanoparticle delivery system. I think it is a good time to remind us all about this competitive advantage.
David Sutton: Absolutely. We have 2 patents. The first patent revolves around our nano encapsulation technology and how we put that together no matter what we put inside of it. It provides us protection in any industry that we are operating in. Now our cannabis patent that utilizes what we call the master patent provides us wide protection in the cannabis space. It provides better bioavailability, consistent dosages and unique benefits that you cannot find anywhere else…to access the complete interview, click here
