Future Farm Technologies Inc (OTCMKTS:AGSTF) is a penny play in the cannabis patch that basically “woke up” in Tuesday’s action. AGSTF stock powered nearly 50% on 12x average daily volume. The catalyst? The company announced that its subsidiary, FFM Consulting Services, LLC, a California limited liability company, has entered into a management agreement with a California non-profit company.
According to the release, the non-profit has secured a sub-license to legally manufacture cannabis oil using a non-volatile method compliant under the Medical Marijuana Regulation And Safety Act, in Southeastern Los Angeles County, California. In other words, AGSTF just got into the THC and CBD pure concentrate business. We can assure you, the company is not contemplating non-profit-hood by this announcement. Hence, the terms of the deal will likely be favorable.

As noted above, the company just inked a deal with CA non-profit that has compliance papers in place to produce in the space.

The market is accelerating as consumers become more educated on the various oil infused products that can be produced, as well as how well they work. As consumers become more educated, they grow more interested in using oil as a flower alternative. Hence, pot going mainstream will be a process that changes many assumptions along the way. For traders in the space, you need to be flexible.
The chart shows a bit less than 120% tacked on to share pricing for the company in the past month, a rally that has pushed up against longer standing distributive pressure in the stock. However, AGSTF stock has evidenced sudden upward volatility on many prior occasions. What’s more, the company has registered increased average transaction volume recently, with the past month seeing topping 260% beyond what we have been seeing over the larger time frame.
This is particularly important with the stock trading on a float that is relatively small at just 15.9M shares. This type of thing is something to watch out for: a mechanically driven price squeeze can result from this type of mix of small float and ramping attention from traders. Since we last covered the name, the stock has moved 50.7% higher.
