The coronavirus pandemic has led to a situation in which many companies have sometimes pivoted from their core products and manufactured items that are meant to tackle the virus.
In Talk With the CEO
The latest to do so is cannabis company Delta 9 Cannabis Inc. (TSX:DN) (OTCQX:VRNDF), which came up with a product that is going to focus on decontamination. The product in question has been branded as the ‘Decontamination Pod’, which is going to be used to decontaminate a range of equipment starting from medical supplies to PPE (personal protective equipment). On Thursday, the company announced the launch of the product and went on to state that it has been validated.
It is a major development for the company and yesterday, the Chief Executive Officer of the company John Arbuthnot went on RICH TV to participate in a discussion about the whole thing. On top of that, Delta 9 became the first company from the cannabis industry that got into this space. Speaking to RICH TV, Arbuthnot stated that this latest product is an offshoot of the sort of thing that Delta 9 has been doing in the cannabis industry.
The company is best known for supplying cannabis growing equipment to growers and one of its better-known products is the Grow Pod. However, the company decided to ‘retool’ the manufacturing line and it was earlier on in the summer this year that Delta 9 starting research on decontamination technologies.
Considering the fact that the number of cases are rising once again and it is not yet known when the COVID 19 vaccines are going to be widely available, this could well prove to be a timely product from Delta 9. Like the company’s other products, the Decontamination Pod is also going to be a B2B (business to business) product. In a press release earlier, the company’s CEO had stated that the product could prove to be a ‘game-changer’ for a range of potential clients.
Hospitals, healthcare institutions, and governments can potentially make use of the product in light of the massive demand for quick decontamination processes. Delta 9 is currently working on ways in which it can distribute its product all across the North American region. Investors could do well to keep an eye on Delta 9 over the coming days.
