As noted above, the stock is on the move in recent days, and the catalyst is clear: the move to takeover the deal space for SmellPro. This is a product that obviously has a market to the extent people want to move large amounts of pot around without the distinctive scent giving it away.
We can think of several reasons why this might be beneficial. In any case, this is another peripheral cannabis patch play. These have been doing quite well lately.
According to the company’s release, the SmelPro product is a significant improvement over currently available transport units used in the cannabis sector. SmelPro utilizes the proprietary polyamide sandwiched tri-liners developed for Sugarmade’s CannaShroud product, combined with active carbon filtration to virtually eliminate all odors. The units are designed to be easy to carry, or to be worn as a backpack, and will initially be available in a choice of three colors, plus camouflage.
Jimmy Chan, CEO of Sugarmade commented, “We worked for months with our factory contacts to design advanced features into SmelPro. All closures utilize very low airflow technology, but to further reduce odor we added a unique Velcro closure. We also designed SmelPro with quality and field survivability in mind by using ultra-high quality materials and reinforcements. Thus, we are confident users will get years of service out of SmelPro. All of our units from our initial manufacturing run are already spoken for and interest is strong. We are so excited about this product, we also acquired rights not only manufacture, but also rights to acquire the entire company and all of its intellectual property.”
