Bottom Line: Is IsraCann Biosciences Cannabis Stock a Buy?

Recommendation: Neutral (for now)

IsraCann Biosciences, Inc. is a cannabis cultivator in Israel. They are striving to become a low cost cultivator, which will give them an advantage in exporting their products to Germany and eventually all of the EU.

IsraCann has been slightly delayed in planting their first crop and blame covid-19 as well as licensing. The good news is that the Israeli government has approved rules for export of cannabis. This export will occur at a fixed price of CAD $5.50 per gram. If they are indeed able to produce cannabis at $0.40 per gram there would be fantastic profit margins in supplying the EU with smokable cannabis.

Locally the Israeli market is growing too. With an estimated 200,000 patients consuming an estimated 85 tonnes per year, there should be plenty of demand locally. Although they have no revenue yet from cannabis related businesses, they do have promise. They just need to get that first crop planted.

The company reported losses of $838,792 during the three months ending August 31st, 2020. This is compared to new losses of $894,848 in 2019. They have around $3 million in working capital so they can fund most of 2021 now. Without significant revenue after that from cultivating they will need to raise funds.

We generally like this company, although the management team is slightly inexperienced. If they can have a few successful harvests and export to Germany, there will be revenue to drive stock prices higher. This is at least 5-6 months away however. For the short term, this is rated Neutral but watch it long term for this to switch to Strong.
