DOJA Cannabis Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hiku Brands Co. Ltd. (CSE: HIKU) (OTC: DJACF), recently posted a blog update detailing the history of Cannabis in British Columbia. Dating all the way back to the 1600s, hemp has proven to be a valuable crop in the Canadian Province. Per the article, hemp was grown in parts of Canada since the 1600s as a cash crop, providing the British Navy with material for rope and sails. Years later, doctors praised extracts of the plant for positive effects in treating medical conditions. However, Canada prohibited cannabis in the 1920s, along with other substances such as opiates and cocaine. Almost a century later, the plant has again been accepted by the Canadian government, with the impending legalization of recreational use expected to go into effect later this year. As a company that is federally licensed to cultivate and sell cannabis pursuant to the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (“ACMPR”), DOJA is set to profit handsomely from the approaching legalization.
