VANCOUVER, Sept. 6, 2016 /CNW/ – Aurora Cannabis Inc. (CSE: ACB) (FRANKFURT: 21P) (WKN: A1C4WM) (OTCQB: ACBFF) (“Aurora” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide the following operational update.

Patient Onboarding Continues Rapid Pace

On September 2, 2016, Aurora surpassed 7,700 active registered patients, just under eight months after the Company’s first sale of product. This is believed to be the fastest rate of patient registration after commencement of commercial operations achieved by any Licensed Producer.

19% Sales Growth Month-over-month

Strong sales growth continued, with total weight of dried cannabis sold reaching 147,000 grams in August, 2016, versus 124,000 grams sold the previous month. Gross revenue for the month of August, 2016 was $1.2 million, a 20% increase over July, 2016.

Upgrade and Expansion of Mother Room

The Company’s production facility has just completed a substantial upgrade and expansion of its mother room, with the addition of full-spectrum LED + HID lighting and an automated irrigation system that can deliver cultivar-specific nutrient formulas. The improvements effectively double the room’s plant capacity and further strengthen Aurora’s commitment to full lifecycle plant health and quality.

I am delighted with our operational performance, our proprietary technologies, and our ability to execute our goals with discipline and vision. The Aurora Standard continues to elevate the way patient needs are being met across Canada.
