Canntab Therapeutics Ltd (CSE:PILL) shares started trading on the Canadian Securities Exchange on Friday, offering traders another way to play the cannabis industry on the most significant day of the year for marijuana enthusiasts.
The company offers medical marijuana in pill form — the first to do so in Canada, and possibly the rest of the world — the reason being that a pot pill would be easier to digest and better for the health of those who have trouble smoking.
Shares popped past C$1 in early trading.
The company is headed by CEO Jeff Renwick with Chief Financial Officer Richard Goldstein. Barry M. Polisuk, Sheldon Inwentash and Vitor Fonseca are directors.
