Toronto, Ontario, Canada – January 12, 2021 Namaste Technologies Inc. (“Namaste” or the “Company”) (TSXV: N) (FRANKFURT: M5BQ) (OTCMKTS: NXTTF), a leading platform for cannabis products, accessories, and education, is pleased to announce, subject to Exchange approval, entry into the USA via CannMart.com.

The Company also announced that Mr. Meni Morim, CEO will be presenting at the NobleCon17 investor conference on Wednesday, January 20th at 3:45 p.m. EST, discussing this new opportunity and the Company’s expansion.

As the regulatory landscape continues to improve in the USA and globally, Namaste has begun the exploration of entering the USA via CannMart.com leveraging its proprietary VendorLink platform. The Company, through an appropriate affiliate, intends to use this expansion as a beachhead into the USA increasing its total addressable market by commencing with the sale of accessories as permissible under applicable state laws, and is exploring expansion to other verticals as regulation evolves and other adjacent complementary markets. The Company is targeting a go-live date for U.S. customers at CannMart.com by the end of this fiscal quarter.

“We applaud the U.S. government’s recent decision to support the removal of cannabis and cannabis resin for medical purposes from Schedule IV of the UN Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs of 1961, and we are very pleased to collaborate with the exceptional DankStop team which has become one of the world’s largest and fastest growing online smoking supply retailers,” said Meni Morim, CEO of Namaste. “We have worked tirelessly these past couple of years to build the technological infrastructure at CannMart.com, and we are excited to explore the many opportunities available to Namaste to expand globally. With the changing regulatory landscape improving in the USA and our entry through the sale of accessories fulfilled by DankStop, we continue the execution of our strategy to position Namaste as a leading global cannabis company and look forward to building on this positive momentum.”

“DankStop has been focused on continuing its execution of growth through its leading and innovative website, offering the largest product selection for the online smoking supply industry,” said Feliks Khaykin, CEO of DankStop.  “We are pleased to be working with the Namaste team as we mutually share the entrepreneurial passion both companies have towards growth through innovation.”
