The platform will aid cannabis business owners to adhere to Health Canada’s reporting requirements by logging each step in the supply chain on blockchain; creating an irrefutable record of a cannabis product’s journey from seed to sale. Regulatory reporting requirements would be automated.

The system will be built off of an existing open source blockchain platform, which should allow for cross-industry collaboration and integration that can support global business transactions. Likewise, the e-commerce marketplace would be based on the platform and facilitate the sale of a broad product selection.

As no definitive terms have been agreed to, the parties intend to commence negotiation of definitive documentation relating to CannaChain; with key terms such as ownership of the joint venture, fees and commissions still needing to be finalized. Development of the platform will not begin until the final terms have been settled and definitive documentation has been executed.
