"We are thrilled with our consistent new user acquisition and the way in which we keep existing users interested and engaged with Cannvas.Me, adding targeted new sections based on user needs including Cannvas For Her, Physician's Corner, our upcoming Athlete's Corner and much much more," said Shawn Moniz, Chief Executive Officer. "With so many visitors to Cannvas.Me in such a short period of time, it's clear not only Canadians, but the global audience of the 80 countries using our platform are starved for more in-depth evidence-based education on cannabis and understand that Cannvas has evolved into a trusted resource for physician-backed information on all aspects of the plant."

With users spending an average of nearly 10 minutes on the site per visit."Through a network of strategic partnerships focused on content and data sharing, coupled with a groundswell of global users looking to learn more about cannabis, Cannvas continues to outpace expectations as it surpasses growth projections," said Steve Loutskou, Chief Operating Officer, Global Markets. "We are thrilled with these results and expect our media and advertising partners to feel the same as their products and services are reaching more relevant audiences as our revenue streams continue to grow alongside our user base."
