Medical Marijuana Licensing Agreement
Denver, CO, July 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medicine Man Technologies Inc. (OTCQB: MDCL) (“Medicine Man Technologies” or “Company”), one of the United States' leading cannabis branding and consulting companies today announced an exclusive licensing agreement with Canada House Wellness Group Inc. (CSE: CHV) (“Canada House”), through its wholly owned subsidiary Abba Medix Corp., for deployment of its intellectual property and product lines (Three a Light ®, Success Nutrients ®, General Intellectual Property) into the Canadian marketplace.
The licensing agreement calls for an initial payment of $4.65M (CAD) in the form of cash and stock for licensing of Medicine Man Technologies intellectual property, product lines, and assignment of an existing Cultivation MAX agreement to Canada House. Medicine Man Technologies will also be entitled to revenue-based fees related to this deployment over the duration of the license agreement and will be assisting Canada House’s marketing efforts.
Medicine Man Technologies’ current CEO, Mr. Brett Roper and members of the team will be working extensively with the Canada House Wellness team through the balance of this year to assist with transition and product development, in particular focusing on the deployment of a highly efficient network of newly announced micro-cultivator license types in Canada as well as other goods and service offerings.
Brett Roper, Medicine Man Technologies’ co-founder and CEO commented, “We are very excited to be aligning ourselves with the Canada House team as they focus on their growth and value goals in the Canadian Cannabis marketplace. In particular, this agreement provides potential future cost-based advantages to Canada House and craft based micro-cultivators in the evolving supply chain, providing a more viable financial operating basis. These types of opportunities facilitate the creation of additional jobs and infrastructure investments that will be very nimble and not tied down to any particular geographic area, also allowing for substantially less investment risk as we continue down this evolutionary path.”
We are delighted to be working with Medicine Man Technologies, a leader in Cannabis cultivation technologies.” says Riley McGee, President of Abba Medix Corp. “By helping us improve our yields and quality, we believe that we will be a leading provider to the medical cannabis market and amongst one of the more sustainable and profitable companies in the industry. Our technology leadership will also be of immense benefit to the emerging micro-grower market.”
Andy Williams, Chairperson of Medicine Man Technologies’ Board of Directors added, “This new venture represents a milestone for our Company in that we believe this will be the first of many such geographically defined partnerships. We are also working on several other new opportunities that I believe will provide for extraordinary additional growth of our brand and corresponding revenues. I want to thank both Brett as well as Riley McGee and the rest of Canada House’s team for their extensive work on getting this project to fruition."
Joshua Haupt, Medicine Man Technologies’ Chief Revenue Officer stated, “As I observed in our April press release, this market segment for cultivators will require a hyper competitive footprint as it relates to the 200 square meter canopy limitation and I believe that our cultivation efficiency and performance will provide these talented growers with a distinct advantage in achieving low cost production of quality tested ‘craft’ based cannabis to the marketplace in Canada. I look forward to working with our new partner, Canada House in growing their client footprint to assist these entrepreneurs to achieve maximum efficiency and quality in their gardens.”
