Core One Labs’ Subsidiary, Core Isogenics Inc., Teams up with Reiziger Pty. Ltd. to Showcase High Yielding Nutritional Cultivation Technology

Published

on

Core One Labs Inc. (CSE: COOL), (OTCQX: CLABF), (Frankfurt: LD6, WKN: A14XHT) (“COOL” or the “Company”) announces that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Core Isogenics Inc., has begun a highly complex nutritional regimen to accelerate the growth of cannabis plants and increase flower yield and quality.

The Core Isogenics’ nursery and breeding rooms are now operational. Approximately 25% of the breeding rooms are now actively involved in a project with Reiziger® Holland to improve harvest yields. This is a significant milestone in the Company’s journey to seed-to-sale with increased profitability. The initial project focus will be a twelve-month study matching genetics to nutrients and creating feeding regimens specifically designed for maximum absorption and conversion of nutrients into cannabinoids. The Company has high expectations for this technology and the possible benefits for the CannaStrips™ brand.

The nursery facility is uniquely suited for this type of project with its ability to track the growing conditions in isolated rooms, as well as documenting the feeding schedule and soil condition in order to gather information to accurately assess the cultivation process. This documentation will allow the Company to consistently produce high quality products in every harvest.  This consistency is vital to the Company’s cultivation model where the goal is a predictable outcome in every harvest.

CEO of Core One Labs Inc., Brad Eckenweiler, stated, “The introduction of Reiziger® and their cultivation technology into our operation is a major step in the growth of Core One Labs. The ability to have Shaun Reid and his team of master Dutch breeders and growers share their decades of experience is extremely valuable and will result in accelerating the Core Isogenics nursery years ahead of what would have been a long learning curve. Most certainly our indoor growing ability will be the primary beneficiary with higher yields and stronger cannabinoid profiles.” The Company will continue to update the market on the development of this exciting project.

LCBO’s bottom line proves privatized alcohol sales a bad idea: OPSEU’s Thomas

Published

The LCBO’s latest profits show the Crown corporation’s value to the people of Ontario, OPSEU President Warren (Smokey) Thomas said Friday.

In its 2018/2019 annual report released Thursday, the LCBO is reporting earnings of $2.37 billion on total revenue of $6.39 billion.

Thomas said those profits go to the provincial government and pay for vital public services like health, education and highways.

“This is why the Ford government should rethink allowing corner stores and grocery stores to sell more alcohol,” said Thomas.  “Is saving folks a 10 minute drive in some cases worth jeopardizing their health care?”

OPSEU represents LCBO workers and Thomas says these frontline professionals deserve the credit for the corporation’s continued success.

“The reason the LCBO is the gold standard in selling alcohol responsibly is because of OPSEU members who make sure alcohol isn’t sold to minors or intoxicated people,” said Thomas.

“They also provide customer service that is second to none and they’re the ones who have made the LCBO a success story.”

As he read the LCBO report, OPSEU First Vice-President/Treasurer Eduardo (Eddy) Almeida reflected on the Ford government’s decision to take the sale of legalized cannabis away from the Crown Corporation.

“Think of what the LCBO’s profits would have been if Premier Ford hadn’t scrapped the plan of the former Liberal government?” said Almeida.   “I’ve put together a lot of budgets and I know how tough an exercise it is.”

“It still makes me shake my head that a government that claimed it had catastrophic financial problems would turn down massive amounts of revenue and go on the misguided course that the Conservatives took. Really? Wow.”

Almeida says municipalities who voted to opt out of Doug Ford’s foolish cannabis privatization plan should stand firm and demand a responsible plan.

“The LCBO continues to prove it’s the best option to keep controlled substances out of the hands of minors,” said Almeida.  “Municipalities and Ontarians in general should continue to demand a responsible plan and just say no to Doug’s. After all, a little competition wouldn’t be a bad thing would it?”
