FinancialBuzz.com's latest Buzz on the Street Show: Featuring Our Corporate News Recap on "Pasha Brands Acquires Health Canada Approved Processor and Cultivator." (CSE: CRFT), one of Canada's largest craft cannabis brands organization, is announcing that it has acquired Medcann Health Products Ltd. Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Pasha Brands is a vertically integrated organization that is firmly rooted in BC's craft cannabis industry, which boasts an international reputation. With proven capabilities in cannabis cultivation, genetic research and development, product, processing, and retail, Pasha is uniquely positioned in the new legal cannabis market through its network of hundreds of craft cannabis suppliers under the Pasha umbrella. Pasha's subsidiary, BC Craft Supply Co. Ltd., is developing a craft cannabis campus, which is dedicated to bringing craft quality into the newly legal cannabis market in Canada. is driven to assist craft growers in obtaining security clearance and licensing to grow as micro-cultivators, specializing in education and compliance to bring growers into the regulated cannabis supply market. As the Canadian cannabis market continues to mature, the consumer market is expected to witness a proliferation of edibles and other alternative cannabis-based products.

In addition to new products, Deloitte mentions other growth drivers such as the introduction of the alcohol and tobacco industry, mergers and acquisitions, and the entry of pharmaceutical companies. However, Deloitte is also forecasting that edibles are expected to be the primary growth driver for the overall Canadian market, as edible and alternative cannabis-based products are expected to account for CAD 1.6 Billion of the total CAD 2.5 Billion marketplace. In combination, the global market for alternative products is expected to double over the next five years, reaching USD 194 Billion. And while the U.S. marketplace accounts for a majority of the global market share, Deloitte highlights that Canada is better positioned than the U.S. The firm notes that Canadian-based cannabis companies receive significant advantages over its global counterparts, such as government support, access to capital markets and the banking system, as well as a unified market. As a result, the U.S. is expected to see its market share dwindle as more global players enter into the cannabis industry.

Canada legalized cannabis entirely back in October 2018, however, due to regulations, many aspects of the industry remain in a grey area. Certain Canadian provinces such as Ottawa are on the verge of finalizing their regulations as the market gears up for the legalization of edibles and other cannabis alternatives. While Health Canada has not released any comments on the matter, the federal government did mention that the legalization of edibles, extracts, and topicals is expected to become law "no later than October 17th, 2019." Once the legislation arrives later this year, Deloitte expects the entry of consumers who have never previously used cannabis products before. While paying attention to each individual plant may diminish the overall yield, the end result produces premium and high-quality cannabis buds.

Rachel Riley, 33, and her ex-Strictly Come Dancing professional boyfriend, Pasha Kovalev, 39, appeared on Celebrity Gogglebox tonight. Those watching the show at home were annoyed they didn't get to see Rachel commenting on her own programme. Another said: "So, they've got Rachel Riley on #CelebrityGogglebox and the others are watching #Countdown, but they've not got her watching herself? The couple have been together since 2014 after meeting on Strictly Come Dancing the previous year. Rachel Riley and Pasha Kovalev are expecting their first child together.

The Countdown star announced the news on Instagram and Twitter using a picture of herself cradling a baby bump on the set of the Channel 4 game show, with the letters on the board spelling out "R TINY MATE". Maths whizz Riley, 33, and Russian dancer Kovalev, 39, have been together since 2014 after they were partnered in the 2013 series of Strictly Come Dancing. Current Strictly champion Stacey Dooley was among those celebrating the baby news, tweeting "congrats!!!" to Riley. "Are you sure this is the same house?" I asked my sister, dejected as we stared at the shiny gold address plate boasting the new owners of my childhood home. But as I stood before the renovated shell of the house that once belonged to my Nanna and Papa, I realized that home is very much a place.

Growing up, illness, poverty and the immigrant struggle sent my family fleeing from New York to Pakistan for respite repeatedly over the years. Home is a memory, I realized, that children absorb and adults look back on to remind themselves of where they once felt whole and safe. As children, I figured they would naturally describe our Amherst house where we've lived for the past six years – the longest we've ever stayed in one place. My daughter, the eldest, said home for her would always be the second-floor townhome we rented in New Jersey where she took her first steps and spoke her first words.

Not only did I have the pleasure to dance the last show with you but pasha was in the cast of my very first burn the floor tour 9 years ago such a gentleman and he will be missed we love ya Pasha.'
