HLIX Playing Cannabis Chess with Strategic Partnerships & Key Acquisitions

Strategic partnerships and key acquisitions have helped Helix to expand even further beyond organic growth, especially through its recent acquisition of Cannabase, the industry’s oldest and largest wholesale cannabis exchange platform. Additionally, powerful exclusive partnerships with BioTrackTHC and MJ Freeway have provided more data and enhanced integration capabilities, which are otherwise unavailable to potential competitors and industry participants. To support those capabilities, Helix TCS has signed a deal with BioTrackTHC, where it would become the single largest shareholder of the privately held company. This transaction is the third for Helix in the last nine months, as part of the CEO’s strategic plan for the company.
