NA­MASTE TECH­NOLO­GIES Inc. in­tends to launch the Na­maste Cafe global con­cept, an ex­cit­ing new re­tail brand that is ex­pected to rev­o­lu­tion­ize the con­cept of the mod­ern cafe. The con­cept is be­ing pro­duced in part­ner­ship with Cana­dian restau­ran­teur Jonathan Dres­ner (Notre-Boeuf-De-Grace, Pi­geon Espresso Bar, Kupfert & Kim). Na­maste is also pleased to an­nounce its ex­clu­sive line of HEAL (Healthy Eat­ing and Liv­ing) branded food prod­ucts in part­ner­ship with chef Pete Evans. HEAL will fea­ture prod­ucts and recipes specif­i­cally de­signed by Mr. Evans with a cannabis twist.

The HEAL brand will be will be launched along with an ed­u­ca­tional plat­form in­clud­ing video con­tent with recipes and in­gre­di­ents needed to cook like the pros from the com­fort of your home. HEAL will be launch­ing a se­ries of cook­ing videos with Mr. Evans in 2019 that will show­case some of the prod­ucts that will be avail­able for pur­chase and unique recipes for the cannabis mar­ket. Sub­ject to the an­tic­i­pated reg­u­la­tions for cannabis ed­i­bles and con­cen­trates, the com­pany will pro­duce a line of cannabis-in­fused HEAL branded prod­ucts for sale through the reg­u­lated mar­ket.

The Na­maste Cafe will be an im­mer­sive med­i­cal cannabis ed­u­ca­tion-fo­cused cafe that will cen­tre on safe use and re­spon­si­ble meth­ods of con­sump­tion di­rected at an age-ap­pro­pri­ate au­di­ence. The Na­maste Cafe will proudly serve the “world’s worst cof­fee” through a sup­ply agree­ment to be agreed with Pi­geon Cof­fee. Each store will of­fer in­ter­ac­tive cannabis ed­u­ca­tion op­por­tu­ni­ties through Na­maste’s on-line portals, hold in-store events and pub­lic sem­i­nars, Na­maste’s full line of pre­mium va­por­iz­ers and cannabis ac­ces­sories along with non-cannabis HEAL prod­ucts will also be avail­able for pur­chase in-store. Rev­o­lu­tion­iz­ing the con­cept of the mod­ern cafe, Na­maste Cafe will serve healthy food prod­ucts in part­ner­ship with Mr. Evans in a con­cept de­signed to­gether with Mr. Dres­ner. Each lo­ca­tion will be staffed by friendly and highly trained con­sul­tants, on hand to fa­cil­i­tate ac­cess to Na­maste’s ac­claimed suite of portals, in­clud­ing Na­mas­teMD, a free and easy-to-use por­tal where cus­tomers can elect to com­plete an on-line ap­pli­ca­tion and con­sul­ta­tion with a nurse prac­ti­tioner. Cus­tomers may also elect to choose from a di­verse se­lec­tion of med­i­cal cannabis prod­ucts on Can­nMart.com, a cannabis e-com­merce plat­form li­censed by Health Canada.

The lo­ca­tion of the flag­ship store will be an­nounced within the next 60 days, with the first store pro­jected to open early next year. The com­pany plans to open up to 20 fran­chise lo­ca­tions across Canada by the end of 2019, along with three over­seas lo­ca­tions, in­clud­ing one in the United King­dom, sub­ject in each case to lo­cal laws. Each store will also in­vite lo­cal in­dus­try lead­ers and cannabis ex­perts to present sem­i­nars to the pub­lic, help­ing to ed­u­cate con­sumers about re­spon­si­ble con­sump­tion and im­por­tant facts about cannabis le­gal­iza­tion.

With the global land­scape for med­i­cal and recre­ational cannabis evolv­ing, the com­pany will in­ves­ti­gate the pos­si­bil­ity of rolling out the Na­maste Cafe con­cept in other mar­kets like the U.K. where it has a strong pres­ence. Each lo­ca­tion is ex­pected to fea­ture the com­pany’s in­no­va­tive tech­nol­ogy plat­forms like Na­mas­teMD, Uppy Cannabis Jour­nal and its ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence (AI) plat­form to en­sure brand con­sis­tency within each lo­ca­tion. Through in­te­grat­ing its tech­nol­ogy plat­forms in each cafe lo­ca­tion, Na­maste will stay true to its roots, us­ing its tech­nol­ogy as a tool that of­fers value to con­sumers.

Sean Dollinger, pres­i­dent and chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of Na­maste, com­ments: “We are very ex­cited to an­nounce this agree­ment with two lead­ing lights in the food-ser­vice in­dus­try. We can’t wait to get started. Our in­ten­tion is to of­fer the gen­eral pub­lic a safe space to ask open ques­tions about cannabis, its ben­e­fits, risks and top­ics peo­ple may want to cover. The com­bi­na­tion of tal­ent and ex­pe­ri­ence from both Pete and Jonathan, glob­ally rec­og­nized ex­perts in their field, will blend per­fectly with Na­maste’s e-com­merce plat­forms and cannabis ex­per­tise.”

We seek Safe Har­bor.
