IC Potash Corporation (ICP_TSE): Skyrockets on update from Cannabis product subsidiary.

IC Potash is a broadly invested agricultural company, currently focused on organic fertilizer and other organic agricultural resources.

In addition to selling supplies like fertilizer to cannabis growers, ICP announced a new growth strategy for IC Organics on Monday.

They will begin utilizing a private blockchain technology to ensure data integrity on “seed-to-sale” information, in both an intra-company and inter-firm context.
