TORONTO, May 8, 2019 /CNW/ – Cannvas MedTech Inc. (“Cannvas” or the “Company”) (CSE: MTEC) (Frankfurt: 3CM) (OTCPK: CANVF), a leading digital cannabis education and analytics company, is pleased to announce that a slew of recent high-profile partnerships within and outside the global cannabis industry, coupled with the dynamic rollout of its Cannvas Kiosk program, has streamlined organizational priorities to strengthen its focus and resources on aggressively growing its existing revenue-generating streams.
“The Cannvas line of products and services offers a complete package of integral and unique information for any business operating in the cannabis marketplace, from producers to retailers to clinics, or ancillary organizations such as government, health and insurance agencies, educational institutions and real estate firms,” said Steve Loutskou, Chief Operating Officer, Global Markets, Cannvas MedTech. “Simply put, there is no one in the cannabis space creating original, unbiased and evidence-based education programs like us, no one collecting data and information on active and potential consumers like us, no one white-labelling a product as robust as ours and no one with the ability to penetrate the marketplace like our Cannvas Kiosk program, so we are well-positioned to grow these revenue streams as we move forward.”
Recently, Cannvas announced a series of revenue-generating partnerships including:
- Joining the International Cannabis Alliance as its exclusive provider of cannabis education.

- A deal with NexTech AR Solutions Corp.(CSE: NTAR) (OTC: NEXCF) to collaborate on enhancing the user experience of its digital cannabis education kiosks across Canada.
