As we watch the biggest and baddest chess pieces on the Canadian cannabis playing board all vie for dominance in a game that is somewhat oddly being played almost as if those involved believe it to be a winner-take-all affair, the opportunity for investors may lie in a different game: that of identifying the most promising second-tier plays with the potential to eventually move into the top-tier. As we see it, Cannabis Wheaton Income Corp (OTCMKTS:CBWTF) might be a candidate for such a move, given the company’s recent commitment to tangible expansion.
As a case in point, the company just provided a construction development update on the joint venture with FV Pharma Inc, a wholly-owned subsidiary of FSD Pharma Inc. (CSE:HUGE) at the former Kraft food-production facility located in Cobourg, Ontario. According to the release out this week, “The Facility hosts an initial 620,000 square feet of building space, a portion of which is currently licensed for cultivation pursuant to the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations, and can support additional expansion capacity of approximately 3,800,000 square feet on the existing property, pending completion of all phases of the project.”
Cannabis Wheaton Income Corp (OTCMKTS:CBWTF) trumpets itself as an investment company that seeks to provide investor returns through streams and capital appreciation in the Canadian cannabis industry.
The company operates as a cannabis streaming company. It provides funding for cannabis facility expansions, operations, and initial construction in exchange for minority equity interests and a portion of the cultivation production.
The company was formerly known as Knightswood Financial Corp. and changed its name to Cannabis Wheaton Income Corp. in May 2017. Cannabis Wheaton Income Corp. was incorporated in 1987 and is based in Vancouver, Canada.
According to company materials, “Wheaton Income is a collective of entrepreneurs with a passion for the cannabis industry past, present and future. Our mandate is to facilitate growth for our partners by providing them with financial support and sharing our collective industry experience. Our partners all have different visions, voices and brand values, and all share a common goal—to build a world-class industry based on ethics, diversity, quality and innovation.”

Cultivating cannabis requires a significant amount of energy in order to ensure proper growing conditions and this is one of the main contributors to overall operations costs. The technological advancements to be implemented at the facility provide us with flexibility in terms of securing a stable supply of energy while maintaining competitive operating costs relative to the rest of the industry.”
