Cannabix Technologies, Inc. (BLOZF)

BLO_logoAs marijuana rises in popularity and legitimacy, companies are flocking to answer the various needs that come with it. From research, cultivation, processing, and marketing, all the way up to commercial and personal use, the many aspects of the industry are covered by new and existing businesses. However, the Vancouver, Canada-based Cannabix Technologies, Inc stands out because it caters to the field of law enforcement through its Marijuana Breathalyzer.

Cannabix Technologies, Inc is a technology company whose prime product is the Cannabix Marijuana Breathalyzer, a drug-impairment recognition device. Much like the common alcohol breathalyzer, it is a tool that can be used by law enforcers to determine a person’s drug intoxication through breath testing. The Marijuana Breathalyzer analyzes breath samples and detects tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the psychoactive component of marijuana and has been found to cause intoxication.

The breath-testing technology in the Cannabix Marijuana Breathalyzer emerged from a study in Sweden. Kal Malhi, a former Canada Mountie (member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police) and current Cannabix President, saw the importance of this technology to identify drivers who are high. The company touts its product as a tool to inhibit marijuana-intoxicated drivers as well as employees whose THC intoxication could be hazardous in the workplace.

Cannabix Technologies started out in 2011 as West Point Resources, Inc, an earlier developer of the cannabis breathalyzer under the brand name Cannabix. The company then changed its name to Cannabix Technologies, Inc only in August 2014.

Currently, Cannabix Technologies is traded in the Canadian Securities Exchange as BLO and in the US OTC markets as BLOZF. It has a market cap of USD 7.4 M. Its top officers are Rav Mlait, CEO; Kal Malhi, President; Dr. Raj Attariwala, Chief Engineer; Dr. Bruce Goldberger, Senior Advisor; and Bryan Loree, CFO.

Cannabix Technologies Reaches Development Milestone with Marijuana Breathalyzer Devices – Provides New Pictures

Cannabix Technologies Inc. (CSE:BLO) (OTC PINK: BLOZF) (the “Company or Cannabix”) developer of marijuana breathalyzer devices for law enforcement and the workplace, reports that engineers have completed assembly of a handheld portable version of the (UBC) THC Breath Analyzer and are preparing the device to build upon promising human tests conducted earlier this year in Kelowna BC.  Over the last several weeks, Company engineers have reduced the size of several components inside the THCBA for a compact handheld device. Cannabix has been conducting extensive lab testing with the new device.

Rethink that last toke for the road with pot breathalyzers

While nearly a dozen U.S. states allow recreational marijuana, all states prohibit driving under the influence.

But there hasn't been an easy way to prove it.. until now.

Several companies in the United States are preparing to market cannabis breathalyzers...

including Hound Labs in Oakland, California and Vancouver's Cannabix Technologies.

The breathalyzers could detect a user who consumed cannabis within the last few hours, and could be used more broadly by companies not just cops.

Hound Labs Chief Executive Officer Mike Lynn says construction companies could be potential customers.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MIKE LYNN, HOUND LABS CEO, SAYING:

"Nobody wants a crane operator 50 stories up to be smoking a joint and nor do you want an emergency medicine doctor like myself taking care of a critically ill patient if I were stoned."

But Justin Srekal of marijuana legalization advocacy group NORML says their use could be problematic. Unlike with alcohol, scientific research has not yet established firm correlations between the amount of marijuana one consumes and how impaired a user can become.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) JUSTIN SREKAL, POLITICAL DIRECTOR, NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR THE REFORM OF MARIJUANA LAWS (NORML) SAYING:

"My understanding is no company that has claimed that they've cracked the code has put out peer reviewed evidence that shows that there is a correlation between impairment and trace metabolic elements."

Cannabix's THC Breath Analyzer could be cheap enough at a few hundred dollars per unit to potentially allow parents to use them... for those interested in testing their teenager before turning over the keys to the family car.
