MedReleaf receives license amendment from Health Canada to commence sales at its Bradford Facility
Construction and capacity expansion firmly on track
MARKHAM, ON, Nov. 6, 2017 /CNW/ – MedReleaf Corp. (TSX:LEAF) (“MedReleaf” or the “Company”), Canada’s first and only ISO 9001 and ICH-GMP certified producer of medical cannabis, has been granted an amended licence from Health Canada to permit sales of medical cannabis under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (“ACMPR”) at its second facility in Bradford, ON (“Bradford Facility”). This increases the Company’s total current licensed production and sales capacity by 80% to approximately 12,600 kg per year.
Just 6 months after receiving our cultivation licence at Bradford, we are among the fastest producers to receive a sales licence and have completed multiple harvests at best-in-class cultivation yields of 300 grams per square foot. As our industry grows, our proven ability to execute large scale projects while maintaining the highest quality standards further solidifies MedReleaf as a trusted leader amongst licensed producers.
Neil Closner, CEO of MedReleaf
This latest amended license from Health Canada follows several other recent milestones at the Bradford Facility. On October 11, 2017, MedReleaf received its amended licence for the use of its Mother Room and Clone Room which will support the growing capacity at the Bradford Facility. On October 20, 2017, the Company received an amended licence for the use of two additional cultivation rooms, effectively doubling annual production capacity to an estimated 5,600 kg at the Bradford Facility. Once construction of the Bradford Facility is fully completed in the summer of 2018, total licensed production and sales capacity from MedReleaf’s two facilities in Markham and Bradford will be 35,000 kg per year.
