TORONTO, March 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Emblem Corp. (TSXV:EMC) (TSXV:EMC.WT) (“Emblem” or the “Company”), has announced today that it has entered into an agreement to become a medical cannabis supplier to Shoppers Drug Mart.
Subject to Health Canada’s approval of Shoppers Drug Mart’s application to be a licensed producer, under the terms of the agreement the Company will supply Shoppers Drug Mart with Emblem branded medical cannabis products. It is expected the products will be sold online, as Canadian regulations currently restrict the sale of medical cannabis in retail pharmacies.
Nick Dean, CEO of Emblem Corp., says the deal is an important milestone for Emblem.
From the very beginning we’ve been very focused on being a leader in the medical cannabis space, not only from the production side, but also when it comes to physician and patient education. Today’s deal with Shoppers Drug Mart helps to solidify that and positions us well to be a world leader of cannabis for medical purposes.
Nick Dean, CEO of Emblem Corp.
