Cannabix 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.
