Management Commentary

Sean Dollinger, President and CEO of Namaste comments; “We are very pleased to be seeing the positive trend of monthly sales increases year-over-year. What is most exciting is our increasing rate of patient acquisition on NamasteMD. With minimal outside marketing we were quietly able to bring on nearly 1,000 patients by the end of the March. We are working on expanding our nurse practitioner team with our partners at O Cannabis we Stand on Guard for Thee Inc. (“O Cannabis”) to accommodate the anticipated growth of patients. We strongly believe that our patients will be a key to our success, along with our strategy to provide our patients with not only the best care but also the largest and best variety of medical cannabis products. We’re proud to be innovating the industry by changing the way that patients access medical cannabis and look forward to continued growth through both the medical cannabis and hardware platforms.”
