VANCOUVER, Jan. 30, 2018 /CNW/ - Liberty Leaf Holdings Ltd. (CSE:LIB) (OTC:LIBFF) (FSE:HN3P) (the "Company" or "Liberty Leaf") is pleased to announce that it has been included in the Solactive Emerging Marijuana Growers Index. Horizons Exchange Traded Funds (ETF's) plans to launch the Horizions Junior Marijuana Growers ETF which seeks to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of the Solactive Junior Marijuana Growers Index.
The Solactive Junior Marijuana Growers Index is designed to provide exposure to the performance of a basket of primarily North American publicly-listed small-capitalization companies primarily involved in the cultivation, production, and/or distribution of marijuana.
"We look forward to broadening our shareholder base through our inclusion in the index, and ultimately, the ETF," said company President and CEO Will Rascan. "It should also help to expand our reach to an even larger audience of fund managers and investors who are becoming increasingly interested in the cannabis sector."
Liberty Leaf is a growth-oriented Canadian cannabis company with interests in two late-stage ACMPR (Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations) applicants, North Road Ventures and Just Kush.
