Canada House Receives Cannabis Sales License from Health Canada

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

TORONTO, Dec. 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Canada House Wellness Group Inc. (CSE: CHV) (“Canada House” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has received approval from Health Canada to sell Cannabis, effective December 21, 2018, in accordance with sections 27 and 289 of the Cannabis Regulations under the Cannabis Act.  This approval comes by way of amendment to the license held by the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary and Licensed Producer, Abba Medix Corp. (“Abba”), to include the sale of dried cannabis, cannabis oil, seeds, cannabis plants, and fresh cannabis for medical purposes.  

“What a way to end the year!  We are thrilled to finally secure this license and begin selling premium medical grade cannabis in support of the medical market and our medical patient base,” commented Chris Churchill-Smith, CEO of Canada House. “This License marks a major milestone since the very inception of our Company and is a testament to the quality of our staff, production capabilities and industry leading SOP’s.  As we finalize the completion of our production facility, we look forward to our new reality of being a fully licensed LP, which marks the next step in our journey to profitability and providing our shareholder base with undeniable value,” added Mr. Churchill-Smith.

Riley McGee, President of Abba added “This is the culmination of what has been an amazing year for our team at Abba. To name but a few of our recent successes, we have secured the exclusive distribution rights to world class genetics, completed several seed sales to other Canadian Licensed Producers, validated Medicine Man’s world class grow methodologies within our 22,000 square foot facility, completed multiple bulk purchases of cannabis, and have harvested four batches of our own premium medical cannabis. We are on track to be in full capacity flower production for the first quarter of 2019 and aim and fully expect to be an industry leader in terms of quality and consistency of our flower.  This license could not have come at a better time for Canada House and its medical patients as product shortages continue to impact the medical and recreational markets.”
