When it comes to publicly-traded cannabis companies that are set to benefit from the Prince Edward Island retail cannabis industry, licensed producers like Tilray Inc. (NASDAQ:TLRY) usually comes to mind ever since they announced supply agreements with the Prince Edward Island Cannabis Management Corporation.
In addition to licensed producers like Tilray, Supreme, and other licensed producers which have signed supply agreements with Prince Edward Island, an ancillary cannabis company, Lift & Co. (TSXV:LIFT), which recently began trading on the TSX Venture Exchange on September 17th, 2018, also stands to benefit from the potential growth of the Prince Edward Island retail cannabis industry.
Training Knowledgeable Cannabis Retail Employees
With recreational legalization just around the corner on October 17th, the Prince Edward Island Cannabis Management Corporation will need to hire and train handfuls of employees in order to be ready for consumer demand.
Thanks to Lift & Co., PEICMC employees will receive training through Lift & Co.‘s Cannabis Retail Training Certification, which leverages Lift & Co.’s years of experience educating cannabis consumers in partnership with MADD Canada’s recognized expertise in responsible use.
PEICMC employees will receive training on selling and safety through a series of online lessons, developed by Lift & Co. and MADD Canada. Topics covered by the certification include public health and harm reduction, law and liabilities, and working with different cannabis customers, among others.
“Education for frontline cannabis retail employees is essential to ensure an informed consumer base,” said Matei Olaru, CEO of Lift & Co. “Lift & Co. is committed to providing leading information to Canadian retailers through our platform. We’re thrilled to bring this level of sophisticated knowledge to the staff at PEICMC and prepare them for the upcoming legalization of cannabis.”
Prince Edward Island is actually the second maritime province to receive Lift & Co.’s cannabis retail Certification, following Nova Scotia, which was announced back in July.
As October 17th gets closer and closer, we’ll be watching Lift & Co. closely to see how things develop. In the meantime, be sure to subscribe to Lift & Co. Stock Updates here so you never miss an important update.
