“We are very pleased to continually see our topical products ranked in the top ten topical cannabis products sold in Nevada dispensaries. Ovation has shown growth over this past year, driven by increased consumer demand and acceptance of cannabis across the country,” said Terry Howlett, CEO of Ovation Science. “The strong sales increase in Nevada dispensaries, especially in this fourth quarter, is also a testament to how effective our products are and how innovative our technology is in delivering cannabis to and through the skin.” He added, “We have stayed focused on our strategic priorities to deliver and grow our revenue and to enhance shareholder value. We remain encouraged by the level of dispensary engagement in selling our products. As we look to the balance of the year, we remain confident in our strategic plan to expand our licensing model to other states and to eagerly engage in CPG opportunities in the new year.”
Ovation is continuing on its growth path as demand for cannabis products has record increases. According to a recent report from BDSA, cannabis sales in the USA in 2021 are estimated to reach almost $31 billion, an increase of 41% over 2020 sales. This demand is primarily driven as a result of cannabis in some form being legal in most states. Over two-thirds of states have legalized medical cannabis, in addition eighteen states, two territories and the District of Columbia have legalized cannabis for recreational use, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. According to BDSA, Cannabis sales in Canada are expected to reach $4 billion in 2021 and forecasted to reach $6.7 billion in 2026, a CAGR of 11%. It further reports that globally cannabis is forecasted to reach $30.6 billion in 2021 to $62.1 billion in 2026, which is a CAGR of 15%.
Ovation leverages its expertise in the pharmaceutical industry to develop highly effective, proprietary products. What makes Ovation’s products different from any other topical cannabis products on the market is its superior delivery of CBD / THC using its skin delivery technology Invisicare®. Invisicare is a proprietary drug delivery technology with over twenty years of research and development in the pharmaceutical industry; specifically dermatology. Ovation formulates two types of topicals; ones that remain on the skin to deal with “skin issues” and transdermal creams that allows the CBD (cannabidiol), and/or the THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) to be absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream. Studies show Ovation’s products have a 10 times greater release of CBD to the skin and over 5 times greater penetration compared to other products tested.
