CV Sciences Inc (OTCMKTS:CVSI) is possibly beginning to show some renewed signs of life following a period of heavy doubt that was initially sparked by a research note from Citron and Andrew Left. The notorious short-seller hammered the company with allegations, and the circling sharks of the class-action legal community did the rest. But shares of the stock never really wilted, and now the specter of a possible short squeeze cannot be dismissed.
To further flesh out the narrative of Wednesday’s action, the company just announced that the Company is now sponsoring Rodale Institute’s research on organic hemp farming alongside industry leaders Patagonia and Dr. Bronner’s. According to the release, the Rodale Institute is the nation’s leading organic farming institution, dedicated to pioneering organic farming through research and outreach.
CV Sciences Inc (OTCMKTS:CVSI) bills itself as a company that operates two distinct business segments: a drug development division focused on developing and commercializing novel therapeutics utilizing synthetic CBD; and, a consumer product division focused on manufacturing, marketing and selling plant-based CBD products to a range of market sectors.
In addition, the company has a strong balance sheet, with cash levels far exceeding current liabilities ($7.2M against $3M).
CV Sciences, Inc. has primary offices and facilities in San Diego, California and Las Vegas, Nevada.
Moreover, CV Sciences, Inc. operates as a life science company. It operates through two segments, Specialty Pharmaceuticals and Consumer Products. The company focuses on developing and commercializing prescription drugs utilizing synthetic cannabidiol (CBD) as the active pharmaceutical ingredient. Its initial drug candidate is CVSI-007 that combines CBD and nicotine for the treatment of smokeless tobacco use and addiction.
The company also engages in the development, manufacture, marketing, and sale of consumer products containing plant-based CBD under the PlusCBD Oil name in various market sectors, including nutraceutical, beauty care, specialty foods, and vape.
