Toronto, ON, October 18th, 2018 – On the eve of legalization of recreational cannabis in Canada, Mary’s Wellness will be on Dragons Den on October 18th at 8:00pm (8:30 NT) on CBC Television, pitching for investment in their brand of cannabis edibles and infused teas.
Junction Capital, a leading private equity and strategy firm which focuses on the intersection between cannabis and commerce helped contribute to the family-owned company’s mission through completing their Branding and Packaging Design. Red Weiss, CEO of Junction Capital, had the idea to create a clean design with packaging that would stand out in the Dispensary and the Pharmacy environment. “I wanted to create something that a consumer would see and think it was a product that they would see on the shelves of any grocery store. The goal was to create product packaging which would compete on a level playing field with any of the mainstream brands such as Davids Tea, TAZO tea and others. Within the dispensary setting over the last three years, Mary’s Wellness has stood head and shoulders above the competition who are largely stuck in yesterday’s market with substandard design and packaging”
Virginia Vidal, creator of Mary’s Wellness, is making an appearance on Dragons Den on October 18th at 8:00pm (8:30 NT) on CBC Television. This will be the first time that a cannabis brand is showing up on international television. Dragons’ Den features aspiring entrepreneurs who pitch their business and prospective deals to a panel of Canadian business moguls who masters of starting companies from the ground up.
Although the Canadian government has not sanctioned the use cannabis edibles, beverages or things that are otherwise ingested, some Canadian cannabis entrepreneurs have already developed products in the space and, as in the case of Canopy Growth (WEED(TSE) $65.50 -0.26 (-0.40%)), who received an investment from Constellation Brands (STZ(NYSE) US$225.57 -1.72 (-0.76%)), or Hexo (TSE: HEXO 7.78 CAD+0.040 (0.52%)), who entered into a JV with Molson Coors (TAP(NYSE) US$59.34 -0.23 (-0.39%)), have already secured product development capital.
