Cannabis-TechnologiesCannabix Technologies, Inc is a unique company among the marijuana businesses that aim to fill the various needs of the industry. While there are research firms, cultivators, dispensaries, and marketers, Cannabix Technologies offers technology and a unique solution: a law enforcement tool called the Marijuana Breathalyzer.

The company started a couple of years before marijuana legitimization made the front pages in North American news. In 2011, the company was founded as West Point Resources, Inc. it started developing the cannabis breathalyzer tool under the brand name Cannabix. Then, in August 2014, at the height of the “green rush”, it changed its company name to Cannabix Technologies, Inc.

Currently, Cannabix Technologies is listed in the Canadian Securities Exchange as BLO, as well as in the US OTC markets as BLOZF. The company is valued at USD 7.4 M.

The Cannabix Marijuana Breathalyzer is its prime product. It is a drug-impairment recognition device that is similar to the alcohol breathalyzer currently used by authorities. Both tools test and analyze breath samples, but instead of alcohol levels, the Marijuana Breathalyzer detects tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a psychoactive compound of marijuana.

Cannabix Technologies now markets this device as a tool to stop marijuana-intoxicated drivers. In addition, it can be used to inhibit THC-intoxicated employees where such intoxication could be considered a workplace hazard.

According to the company, the technology used in the Cannabix Marijuana Breathalyzer was sparked by a Swedish study on the same subject. It was then picked up by Cannabix President Kal Malhi, who formerly served in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

Aside from Malhi, top executives at Cannabix Technologies include CEO Rav Mlait, Chief Engineer Dr. Raj Attariwala, Senior Advisor Bruce Goldberger, and CFO Bryan Loree.

Cannabix Technologies to Beta Test Marijuana Breathalyzer with Private Clinic in Northwestern U.S.

Cannabix is developing the Cannabix Marijuana Breathalyzer devices to give law enforcement and employers a tool to enhance public safety VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cannabix Technologies Inc. (CSE: BLO) (OTC PINK: BLOZF) (the “Company or Cannabix”) developer of the Cannabix Marijuana Breathalyzer for law enforcement and the workplace, is pleased to report that it will begin beta testing its THC Breath Analyzer (“THCBA”) with a private drug testing clinic located in the Northwestern United States. Cannabix expects to deliver its version 3.0 THCBA prototype to this clinic in the coming weeks to begin a breath testing with select patients. The Company and the clinic have entered into a non-disclosure agreement. The collaborating clinic has a robust drug testing operation and is one of the top drug testing providers to employers within its respective state. The high-volume clinic has a diverse range of patients and focuses on private sector testing for alcohol and illicit drugs. The clinic has extensive experience beta testing with new drug testing technologies. In the recent past, the collaborating clinic was selected to be an early tester of oral swab devices, which have been authorized for use in certain jurisdictions. Beta-testing of the THCBA prototype will be focused on training the device’s machine learning database, to help determine sensitivity ranges and improving user and administrator experience. Furthermore, this data will help with identifying cross-reactivity of other substances with the study population. The THCBA is a drug screening device for employers and other markets who are seeking a way to quickly, easily and non-invasively test for recent use of ∆9-tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”) - the psychoactive component of marijuana that causes impairment. Current forms of testing for marijuana use can identify THC ranging from minutes to days prior to actual use, making it difficult to show the difference between the two. Studies¹ have shown that breath is a better indicator of impairment than saliva and urine because THC is present in breath for a relatively short period of time (1-3 hours); whereas, it is excreted at detectable levels in other body fluids for many hours, days, or even weeks after smoking. This short time period of detection in breath aligns with the peak impairment window. (1) Olla P, Ishraque MT, Bartol S. 2020.

Cannabix Technologies Develops Version 3.0 of THC Breath Analyzer Device

Cannabix is developing the Cannabix Marijuana Breathalyzer devices to give law enforcement and employers a tool to enhance public safety Cannabix Technologies Inc. Cannabix Technologies Inc. THC Breath Analyzer Ver 3.0 Cannabix Technologies Inc. Cannabix Technologies Inc. THC Breath Analyzer Ver 3.0 VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cannabix Technologies Inc. (CSE: BLO) (OTC PINK: BLOZF) (FRANKFURT: 8CT) (the “Company or Cannabix”) developer of the Cannabix Marijuana Breathalyzer devices for law enforcement and the workplace, is pleased to report that it has developed the latest version of the THC Breath Analyzer (“THCBA) prototype and portable system for field use. The new system incorporates a new protective case which houses a sterilization module, smart sample preparation stage and integrated battery charging system. In addition, engineers have enhanced the handheld device for field use in several ways including revisions to the screen placement, improved breath flow analysis and upgraded microcontroller. New images of the THCBA version 3.0 are included in this press release and available on the Company’s website. THCBA testing is ongoing and is focused on training the device’s machine learning database, determining sensitivity ranges and improving user and administrator experience. The THCBA has been built to provide easy to understand screen prompts for the positive and negative detection of ∆9-tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”) - the psychoactive component of marijuana that causes impairment in breath, and can be administered with limited training. The system provides results in under five minutes. The THCBA has been targeted for employers and other markets who are seeking a way to quickly, easily and non-invasively test for recent use of THC. Employers everywhere are struggling with the limitations of current drug testing technology in identifying recent use of marijuana that may be causing impairment during work hours and differentiating this from recreational and medical use during nonwork hours/days. The Cannabix device allows for more relevant THC detection from breath allowing employers to create an onsite regiment whereby they can perform pre-access testing for recent use of marijuana before and during work hours, instead of testing for drug use when employees are not at work. Current forms of testing for marijuana use can identify THC ranging from minutes to days prior to actual use, making it impossible to show the difference between the two. Studies¹ have shown that breath is a better indicator of impairment than saliva, blood, or urine because THC is present in breath for a relatively short period of time (1-3 hours); whereas, it is excreted at detectable levels in other body fluids for many hours, days, or even weeks after smoking. This short time period of detection in breath aligns with the peak impairment window. The Company wants to acknowledge the rapidly changing environment for cannabis use in the U.S. The November election in the U.S. saw the addition of Arizona, Montana, New Jersey, and South Dakota approving recreational marijuana legalization. In February, news agencies have reported that that top Democrats including senators Cory Booker (NJ), Ron Wyden (OR), and Chuck Schumer (NY) are seeking to advance comprehensive cannabis reform legislation in the United States Congress. These kinds of significant developments increase the focus on public safety as cannabis use is legalized in new jurisdictions and emphasizes the importance of the kinds of tools that Cannabix Technologies is developing to support public safety.
