The global medical marijuana market is expected to reach a value of USD 55.8 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The growing number of countries legalizing the use of medical marijuana in various parts of the world is one of the key factors driving the usage rate of cannabis in various therapeutic applications, such as pain management, appetite enhancement, and reducing eye pressure.
SinglePoint, Inc. (OTC: SING) on March 14th announced that it "has closed its first round of funding to acquire a portion of Jacksam Corp., dba Convectium, the developer of a unique oil filling system poised to revolutionize the cannabis market. Convectium projects full-year 2017 sales of $3.5 million, a triple-digit increase over the year prior. The acquisition represents the first of many strategic investments SinglePoint intends to make to diversify its revenue streams in the multi-billion dollar cannabis industry.
As previously announced, SinglePoint will invest a stock and cash consideration totaling $800,000 to help fund the growth of Convectium and the marketing of its revolutionary 710Shark and 710Seal system. Developed by Convectium, the system is capable of filling and packaging more than 100 cartridges or disposable vape pens in 30 seconds, making it the fastest and only filling and sealing system of its kind. Convectium also offers a line of B2C products, which SinglePoint will sell online through its SingleSeed.com subsidiary."
"We have evaluated numerous investment prospects in the cannabis space, and found there is nothing that compares to this opportunity we have with Convectium," states SinglePoint CEO, Greg Lambrecht. "With this transaction, we will acquire a stake in a cannabis business that never touches a marijuana plant. This is the strategy we will use as we move forward to hedge us against changing federal and state laws."
