TORONTO (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — WeedMD Inc. (TSX-V:WMD) (“WeedMD” or the “Company”), a federally licensed producer of medical cannabis, is pleased to announce that on June 16, 2017, the Company received a supplemental license from Health Canada for the production of medical cannabis oils.
The Company has imported a purpose-built high-throughput ethanol extraction machine from Germany, with the goal of starting RD and production of cannabis oils immediately. After thorough analysis, WeedMD concluded that ethanol extraction is capable of producing a clean product that meets and exceeds the regulator’s strict guidelines, while providing a scalable and low-cost platform to service the future demand for oil and other extracted products. Once the Company has produced and inventoried saleable batches of oil, it will invite Health Canada to conduct a final inspection to secure an amendment permitting the sale of cannabis oils.
