On Behalf of the Board,
Poda is actively engaged in the commercialization of vaporizable products, which have the potential to reduce the risks associated with combustible products. The Company has obtained an exclusive license to an innovative heat-not-burn vaporization system that uses proprietary biodegradable single-use pods, which are both consumer and environmentally friendly. The patent-pending designs prevent cross-contamination between the electronic vaporization device and the pod, eliminating all cleaning requirements and providing users with the most convenient and enjoyable potentially risk-reduced vaping experience. Pod refill options range from dried flower and tobacco to liquids and concentrates and can easily be switched during vaping sessions to suit any adult consumer’s mood.
