What a week for our #1 Stock Pick Choom™ (CSE: CHOO; OTCQB: CHOOF) (CHOOM STOCK INVESTOR PROFILE) as they announce the closing of its acquisition of Specialty Medijuana Products.
This follows the announcement earlier this week of a $10 Million placement, with $7 Million coming from Aurora Cannabis, leading to record highs in both stock price and volume.
This closes another Late Stage ACMPR Applicant under the Choom umbrella, and it is expected to receive its cultivation license at any time.
Not to mention the ability to scale growing facilities and increase production capacity to 700,000 sq ft.
Needless to say, this is more great news for Seed Investors looking for a small cap that is ready to explode.

Specialty Medijuana Products Inc.
SMP, based in Canada's beautiful Sooke, BC, is committed to becoming a Licensed Producer of cannabis under the ACMPR. SMP was founded by a seasoned business team with extensive experience in growing cannabis, the operation of pharmacies, medical clinics, land development and construction. The SMP team, in conjunction with Choom's™ management team, plan to build upon their collective past business successes and leverage their expertise to create Canada's premiere lifestyle brand in adult-use cannabis.
SMP's marijuana production growth strategy is expected to be executed in three phases:
- Phase I - First Facility: AOR evidence package submitted to Health Canada: Building is at operational readiness with state-of-the-art-facilities, consistent with ACMPR standards, and SMP expects to receive its cultivation license from Health Canada in Summer 2018.
- Phase II - Second Facility: Expand existing production by constructing an approximately 19,600 sq. ft. facility that will bring total production capacity to over 29,000 sq. ft. in the combined facility footprint.
- Phase III - New Facility: Expand existing production by constructing two additional buildings that will increase the total building gross square footage to just over 700,000 sq. ft. This new facility, a hybrid model of indoor and greenhouse production, is expected to bring Choom's total production capacity to over 700,000 sq. ft. The Municipality of Sooke has already approved cannabis production zoning for the site. The building expansion fits within the zoning regulations and final planning for this expansion is currently underway.
