Elixinol Global Limited (OTCQX: ELLXF), through its businesses has a global presence in the cannabis industry including hemp-derived CBD dietary supplements, food and wellness products, as well as the cultivation and manufacture of medicinal cannabis products.


The key milestones in the company and the industry:


On 29 August 2018, the company reported financial results for 1H FY2018. Elixinol reported a solid first half-yearly result for EXL as an ASX listed company. The company delivered exceptionally strong top-line growth, which has seen the Company more than double its size and enabled it to report its first profit position.


As per management, since listing in January 2018, the business has continued on its strong growth trajectory. Significant business building initiatives have been put in place to increase cultivation and manufacturing capability for Elixinol in the US, including the NCHPP JV supply agreement and relocation to a new production facility to come on stream later this year in Colorado. The management expects growth in the Hemp Foods Australia business to be supported by launches of the company’s own finished food products and penetration in the cosmetics segment through its SATIVA Skincare range.

  • The company’s business is exposed to regulatory risk and its adverse impact on the overall business risk profile.
