Halo Collective Inc has announced they will not be pursuing the acquisition of PhytoCann Holdings SA citing market conditions.

“I have worked in the legal U.S. cannabis industry for nearly a decade and frankly have never seen market conditions as challenging as what we are experiencing today. In conjunction with the Board of Directors, I have therefore decided to focus on Halo’s core assets, including California and Oregon,” said Katie Field, Halo’s CEO and Director. “We are simplifying and strengthening in order to enhance shareholder value. Even under the best conditions, managing an international business out of our core product line presents complexities. We wish PhytoCann’s management all the best and look forward to their continued success.”
