FLORIDA: PotNetwork Holdings has announced today that it is preparing to list its common stock on the Canadian Securities Exchange operated by CNSX Markets Inc. The Company has engaged Canadian securities counsel to assist with the listing process. A CSE listing will allow the Company’s common stock to be dual listed in both U.S. and Canada.

PotNetwork HoldingThe application for a listing on the CSE will follow the Company’s transition to becoming a fully reporting Company with the SEC once its recent Form 10 filing becomes effective. The Company also intends to complete an uplisting to the OTCQB market tier on OTC Markets.

Kevin Hagen, CEO, stated, “Public attitudes around the world towards CBD are shifting as a result of people and regulators understanding the benefits of CBD. Cannabis-based products, in general, are experiencing explosive growth and we have begun an aggressive expansion of our business to further drive the growth of the Company into 2019. Integral to that expansion, is our decision that the time is right to list our stock on the Canadian market. The CSE already lists many companies in our industry, making this move an extremely logical choice that we believe will significantly benefit both the Company and its shareholders, across two countries instead of one.”
