CANADA’S CANNABIS COMPANY™
Founded in 2014, Invictus MD represents a powerful platform of licensed cannabis producers across Canada. We are committed to providing patients and adult users with high-quality medical-grade marijuana through clean and organic means.
Our development has always been towards the future, when the cannabis industry fully opens up into a regulated consumer market. With a legislative head start in Canada, we have quickly secured one of the strongest cultivation profiles in the country, supported by over 250 acres of production capacity. All our licensed producers operate under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) and share a common dedication to quality, consistency and safety.
We believe that legalization is imminent
The social stigma once associated with cannabis is quickly fading. Nearly 70% of Canadians are in favour of marijuana legalization, viewing the plant as a natural and healthier way to deal with a wide variety of ailments.
We are at the beginning of an entirely new industry. There are no blueprints to follow or tried-and-true strategies to execute. Invictus MD has brought together leaders in the fields of agriculture, business development, management and finance to create a robust framework for growth, starting from the foundation up.
Large Canadian Footprint of cannabis real estate
We own more than 250 acres of buildable property across the country, allowing for millions of sq. ft. of canopy space as demand dictates.
A one million dollar dividend was paid out in 2016, representing the first ever dividend paid out by a cannabis company.
Strong production profile
By focusing on expanding our production capability, we are forecasted to produce in excess of 50,000 kgs by 2021.
Agile development is at the core of who we are
From the beginning, we have moved quickly to gain an advantage when it comes to the production of pharma-grade cannabis production. Our strength comes in our ability to rapidly adjust to the shifting sector and market while executing growth strategies based on lean principles.
Legal cannabis is not an easy industry to navigate around. As a team, Invictus MD has built a solid knowledge base of the space with every plan, project, and permit successfully achieved over the years. Our familiarity with the burgeoning industry combined with our agile approach is what powers our business and development.
Invictus MD is at the forefront of a new industry
By balancing our management and strategic experience with capital resource and production capabilities, we are positioned to create immense value for our shareholders as legal cannabis becomes a regulated, socially-supported product.
