Heavenly Rx, a Canadian business that specialises in cannabis-based CBD products, has acquired a 51% controlling stake in US plant-based company Tru Brands for just over US$6m.

The acquisition price will be paid through a mixture of $3.5m in cash and $2.57m in Heavenly Rx stock.

Heavenly Rx, a portfolio company of local investment business Sol Global, said it plans to increase its equity stake to at least 62% through ongoing working capital injections into Tru Brands.

The US company, based in Golden, Colorado, sells plant-based products, such as bars and powders, under the Truwomen brand.

Until now Heavenly Rx, which cultivates hemp, has processed and manufactured a range of traditional CBD products, including oils, tinctures, balms, and vape-ready lines.

This deal is likely to see it moving into the infused foods area.
