The nutraceutical industry boasts a diversified playing field, and Canada-based Algae Dynamics Corp. (OTCQB: ADYNF) is taking a unique approach to this burgeoning market, focusing on the development of proprietary research and products that combine the health benefits of botanical oils derived from cannabis and algae. “The original core of the company’s product development strategy was the extraction of Omega-3 fatty acids from certain strains of algae with high concentrations of DHA to create various nutraceutical products. As a result of the many demonstrated health benefits of other botanical oils, most notably cannabis oil, Algae Dynamics developed a strategy aimed at developing products that combined the health benefits of algae and cannabis oils. Capitalizing on the burgeoning demand for cannabis oil and other smoke-free alternatives to marijuana consumption will help support ongoing initiatives to create and market research-driven product formulations. Although the company is publicly traded in the U.S., business is conducted in Canada with no exposure to U.S. federal regulation involving cannabis. The Canadian cannabis oil extraction marketplace is projected to grow from C$1 million in 2015 to C$1.7 billion in 2020, which is more than a 1,000-fold increase. With the Government of Canada indicating a target date for full legalization on or before July 2018, numerous opportunities for sales in extracts and oils will open up very soon.”

About Algae Dynamics
Algae Dynamics is engaged in the development of unique health products and pharmaceuticals that utilize hemp, cannabis and algae oils. To assist in this development, Algae Dynamics engaged two Canadian universities to provide research, focusing on the use of cannabis oil in the context of cancer and the use of cannabis derivatives for the development of novel pharmacotherapies for mental health. Algae Dynamics intends to utilize this research to develop products that combine the significant health benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids derived from algae oil with extracts from cannabis oil for the rapidly growing medical and non-medical markets in Canada and globally. The company has developed strategic relationships with licensed producers of cannabis to ensure a source of cannabis oil. Algae Dynamics’ product development efforts are designed in the near-term for over-the-counter nutraceuticals, and in the longer-term for patented medicines. The company’s recent initiatives are an extension of its previous plan, which was focused solely on commercialization of its proprietary BioSilo® algae cultivation system for the high volume, low cost production of pure contaminant-free algae biomass which is high in Omega-3 fatty acids.
