Pure Extracts Begins Trading on the CSE

Cannabis extracts are projected to become a $28.5 billion market by 2027, according to Grand View Market Research, representing a 16.6% compound annual growth rate. As consumers transition from cannabis flower to oils, tinctures, edibles, topicals and other products, cannabis extraction companies are playing a key role in the next stage of the industry’s expansion.

(CSE: PULL) will become one of the few pure plays in the space following its listing on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) under the ticker symbol “PULL”, providing easy access to the unique corner of the market.
