The Cannabis Markets and the Technology Industry continue to come closer together as legal cannabis prohibition and its sub products lessens around North America. In recent years, technological advancements have begun to pick up around the industry. When Canada and U.S. states such as Colorado, Washington amongst others ushered in different levels of legalization, these tech advancements took off that much more. Many believe the cannabis industry will continue to benefit from an injection of next generation tech innovation as well as creative, ingenious services and solutions while tech companies race to develop and introduce the latest technologies, service platforms and advanced products to enhance operations and overall performance for cannabis leaders. Active companies in the cannabis markets this week include ParcelPal Technology Inc. (CSE:PKG) (OTC:PTNYF), FSD Pharma Inc. (CSE:HUGE) (OTC:FSDDF), OrganiGram Holdings Inc. (TSX-V:OGI) (OTC:OGRMF), International Cannabrands Inc. (CSE:JUJU) (OTC:GEATF), Emerald Health Therapeutics Inc. (TSX-V:EMH) (OTC:EMHTF).
