InvestorNewsBreaks – Willow Biosciences Inc. (TSX: WLLW) (OTCQX: CANSF) Joins NYSE-Listed Cannabis ETF

May 18, 2021 11:08:16

Willow Biosciences (TSX: WLLW) (OTCQX: CANSF), a Canadian biotechnology company that manufactures ultra-pure, sustainably produced cannabinoids via yeast-based biosynthesis, has been added to the Cannabis ETF (NYSE: THCX), an exchange-traded fund that trades on NYSE Arca. Listed on NYSE Arca, THCX tracks the Innovation Labs Cannabis Index, which is a portfolio of 33 stocks that are expected to benefit from the growth of the legal global marijuana, cannabidiol (“CBD”) and hemp industries. THCX is expanding to include a variety of cannabis industry subthemes, which now includes Willow’s industry-leading manufacturing capabilities that produce ultra-pure, sustainably produced cannabinoids created with a fraction of the environmental footprint that traditional plant cultivation yields. The addition of Willow to the index is intended to appeal to investors looking to participate in the next generation of cannabinoid manufacturing. “As the only publicly traded, pure-play company that is biosynthetically producing cannabinoids, inclusion in THCX will allow us to reach a much broader group of investors looking to capture the large, global, total addressable market Willow is targeting,” said Willow president and CEO Trevor Peters in the press release. “As we have just commenced the commercialization stage of our first cannabinoid, cannabigerol, this milestone comes at the perfect time as we are transitioning into a revenue-generating company.”
