I have posted some info on UCAN in the forum and have posted a blog here as well (interview with CEO). The company just announced a deal with a Canadian company. I have previously spoken with a senior person at WeedMD who I met in Vancouver at the GreenRush Financial conference and found the company to be interesting.

United Cannabis & WeedMD Enter Exclusive Bi-Lateral Partnership
New Canadian Medical Marijuana Company Will Benefit From the Services and Expertise From Colorado-Based Cannabis Consulting Company

DENVER, CO and TORONTO, ON, Jun 05, 2014 (Marketwired via COMTEX) -- United Cannabis Corporation (otcqb:CNAB) (United Cannabis"), a Colorado-based bio cannabinoid technology, management and consulting company, and WeedMD Rx Inc.

The deal also positions United Cannabis and WeedMD as 50/50 partners to invest in future potential projects in Canada and in the US.

This partnership has the potential to revolutionize the medical cannabis industry in Canada with its focus on scientific research, product development and implementation of its proprietary cannabinoid therapy program.

"WeedMD is thrilled to be bringing United Cannabis Corporation's incredible experience and expertise in bio cannabinoid therapy to Canada through this important partnership," says Michael Kraft, Chairman of WeedMD. "Cannabis is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known when used under medical supervision. WeedMD is committed to providing Canadian patients with the most in-depth and current information. United Cannabis is one of the strongest leaders in the US and we are honoured to be part of their team."

The United Cannabis team brings 30 years of combined experience working in the medical marijuana industry. With access to hundreds of strains (including more than 15 unique CBD-dominant varieties), and the A.C.T Now program (Advanced Cannabinoid Therapy) combined with data and patient stories, United Cannabis will significantly improve WeedMD's market position and offering in the rapidly growing Canadian market.
