Cannabis + Nutraceuticals = Success
Pharmagreen is involved in two sectors poised for growth. Let’s talk about the cannabis sector first. The industry was valued at USD $17.8B in 2021, which is very interesting. The sector’s growth, commonly called Compound Annual Growth Rate, is set to represent 25.3% from 2022 to 2030. Why is this data this high? Cannabis witnesses more and more acceptance from worldwide governments with a high rate of legislation. Cannabis’ benefits aren’t brand new. Throughout history, cannabis has long been used for medicinal purposes but not as the first line of treatment. Nowadays, it is remarkably effective in its ability as therapeutic for chronic pain and treating nausea caused due to chemotherapy. Even if it is still classified as a Schedule I drug by the DEA, more than two-thirds of the states have legalized it, and the FDA has approved medical cannabis in the form of CBD products for epilepsy seizures and, as mentioned above, for nausea.
Now, let’s dive into nutraceuticals. This is a considerable segment worth USD $396B, and even if it grows slower than cannabis, it will still increase by 5.2% between 2022 and 2030. If this word at first glance seems barbaric, many use them as an essential component of consumer lifestyle. Many people undergo metabolic disorders, and it keeps growing worldwide. According to the IDF, more than 30% of the US population is estimated to have metabolic syndrome. This market is divided into functional beverages, foods, and dietary supplements. Out of these three segments, functional foods represented the most significant stake, worth USD $157B in 2021. The demand for this market share will continue to augment as it means several health benefits, including weight management and improved blood circulation. What also helped the sector is its distribution channels. It was first sold through pharmacies, Brick & Mortar stores, and now E-commerce has its word to say. The last segment generated USD $116B. About Covid pandemic positively affected the overall growth of the nutraceuticals industry. Preventative measures against coronavirus promoted the consumption of nutritious and functional foods with high zinc, sodium, vitamin D, vitamin C, and mineral content, escalating the sales of nutraceutical products.

Mr. Styles will use “multiple genomic data platforms to cross reference client-specific data against historical and current genomic patterns” to make direct recommendations regarding appropriate active ingredients.
“It gives me great pleasure to have Mr. Styles join our corporate team. While getting to know Ethan for the last year and a half, I experienced first hand his extensive knowledge of therapeutic plants and fungi. I learned from him what really matters when it comes to personalized health and wellness. He has been the missing link we were looking for in the production of nutraceutical whole plant and fungi-based human support product development, utilizing molecular biology and genomic based sciences”Peter Wojcik, CEO of Pharmagreen.
Regarding market cap, the company’s is still incredibly low. It is currently valued at around $3M for a stock price worth $0.0066. The stock price witnessed a 52-week high of $0.03 for a 52-week low of $0.004. You understood it. The stock is strongly undervalued, considering all the great news Pharmagreen Biotech shared and the two significant markets in which the company is involved. It is fair and not biased to state the proper stock price valuation could significantly be higher than its 52-week high. Despite the positive news, the stock currently gave a -67% YoY return on investment.
What should you remember?
Pharmagreen Biotech (OTC: PHBI) is involved in two sectors with a high growth opportunity. Cannabis is expected to have a CAGR of 25%, and nutraceuticals should witness a CAGR of 5%.
