SAN DIEGO, CA, Oct. 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE – MyDx, Inc. ( OTC: MYDX ), a leader in science based cannabis health technologies, today issued a press release with the following letter to shareholders.
First off, I hope this letter finds you well.
I think we can all agree the MyDx® story has a been a hopeful yet rocky one.
It has been a story of excitement for a vision, coupled with the hope of seeing come to life a revolutionary product that could one day help all of us Trust and Verify® what we put into our minds and bodies. This hope was partially realized with the creation of CannaDx™, a portable analyzer currently being used by thousands of consumers in the Cannabis industry to test the chemical profile of their cannabis and tracking how it makes them feel. Over the last few years, we also have been developing an OrganaDx®, AquaDx®, and AeroDx™ solution, but we have yet to deliver on a sustainable product that can address consumer safety.
From a business perspective, we expect the CannaDx product business unit, as a standalone division of the company, will continue to market, sell, and service this product, and believe it should be able to self-sustain itself and operate as a profitable business in the coming years. The CannaDx business profits, however, are not yet sufficient to support the additional expenses required to operate and maintain a fully reporting and audited publicly traded company. In addition, I believe that our current CannaDx product launched in 2015 needs an upgrade in order to meet the ultimate needs of today’s cannabis consumers.
We continue to need to raise capital to fund our operations. As a public company, however, we have not been able to raise capital on favorable terms in the past and we don’t expect this to change in the foreseeable future. This certainly provides a challenge for the company going forward.
That said, with all of its challenges, I still believe in the vision and mission of MyDx.
So, we will continue to operate the company and get back to basics.
We plan to focus our efforts on building an analyzer that can actually test for the safety of the samples we consume, starting with cannabis. The recent news reports of potentially tainted cannabis vaping products that may have caused unnecessary injuries or deaths highlight the need for solutions that can more easily test for toxic pesticides, heavy metals, and other harmful chemicals such as Vitamin E Acetate that are likely the cause of illnesses in the products people are consuming today. We plan to address this need, potentially through strategic partnerships, by developing a viable OrganaDx product, if that is possible with the limited resources we have.
If we can deliver on OrganaDx, while we continue to make improvements to CannaDx, the revenues from both products, which consumers continue to seek, may put this company back on the right path towards profitability and most importantly, address a looming global issue of consumer safety, which is at the heart of the mission of this company.
