MMJ Group Holdings set to capitalise on WeedMD investment as company scales up

MMJ Group Holdings Ltd (ASX:MMJ) (OTCMKTS:MMJJF) is focused on adding to its portfolio of investments in the cannabis value chain in Australia, Canada and Europe.

The addition of WeedMD Inc. (CVE:WMD) (OTCMKTS:WDDMF) (FSE:4WE) in September 2019 is proving to be valuable, with the company producing cannabis products for both the medicinal and adult-use markets in Canada across its three branches – StarSeed Medical Inc, Color Cannabis and CX Industries.
