Cannabis stocks were a mixed bag on Wednesday, but the sector as a whole continued to drift lower.

The North American Marijuana Index, which tracks the top cannabis stocks in the US and Canada, fell 0.6% to 136.86 points. One bright spot was the Horizons Marijuana Life Sciences Index ETF, which gained 0.5% to C$10.70, while the OTCQX Cannabis Index sank nearly 2% to 478.4 points.

BevCanna Enterprises Inc (CSE:BEV) (OTCMKTS:BVNNF) shares rose after the company announced a partnership with cannabis operator Capna Intellectual Inc to bring its leading multi-state cannabis vape brand, Bloom, to Canada. 

BevCanna said it will manufacture and sell Bloom-branded products, including cannabis concentrates and extracts.

Its stock increased 4% to C$0.52 on the CSE and 1.3% to US$0.40 on OTC Markets. 

EXMceuticals Inc (CSE:EXM), meanwhile, obtained a licence for cannabis research and development from the Portuguese government. 

The company said its fully operational R&D laboratory in Lisbon will now develop cannabis-based products and operate as a pilot-scale refinery for the transformation of cannabis-based ingredients.

Shares rose 4.6% to C$1.15.

Golden Leaf Holdings (CSE:GLH) (OTCMKTS:GLDFF) shares did well in the US following the Nevada launch of Chalice Farms Chews, a line of cannabis-infused fruit snacks. 

It's share price jumped 20% to US$0.02.

Duds

CannaRoyalty Corp, which does business as Origin House (CSE:OH) (OTCMKTS:ORHOF), struggled for the third day in a row this week. 

The company announced late Tuesday in a joint statement with US cannabis operator Cresco Labs Inc (CSE:CL) (OTCMKTS:CRLBF) that the waiting period necessary for Cresco to acquire Origin House had ended and now moves to the next phase. The companies now plan to pursue an acquisition deal.
