Sproutly Canada, Inc., is pleased to announce that the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Toronto Herbal Remedies Inc. (“THR”), a licensed producer under the Cannabis Act, has received a processing licence from Health Canada effective March 29, 2019 (the “Processing License”). The Processing License allows THR to produce cannabis oil and related products and will also allow the Company to conduct certain research and development activities, including the formulation of proprietary beverage products.
“We are making steady progress towards achieving Sproutly’s mission of delivering a safe and consistent whole plant experience from cannabis, with a lead position in the beverage market. The Processing License grant is a major milestone towards the path to commercializing our cannabis beverages and other edible products. Specifically, for cannabis beverages, we can now continue to advance our formulation work at our own production facility as we prepare for the legalization of cannabis beverages later this year,” said Keith Dolo, CEO & Director. “Our plan is to deliver cannabis beverages that will not only look and taste great, but also where consumers will feel the cannabis effects within five minutes and dissipate within 90 minutes. With Infuz2O’s fast onset and fast offset characteristics the experience is more similar to drinking a beer, compared to traditional cannabis oils that have an unpredictable, multi-hour experience.”
“We have completed a substantial amount of formulation work to-date with our proprietary, naturally produced, water soluble cannabinoids, which we have named Infuz2O. With the grant of our Processing License, we can extend formulation development work with the cannabis strains which we plan on utilizing in our cannabis beverages in Canada. It also allows us to perform the required shelf-stability and other necessary testing to be ready for the legalization of cannabis beverages later this year,” commented Dr. Arup Sen, Chief Science Officer & Director. “In addition to the anticipated launch of our cannabis beverages utilizing Infuz2O, we are equally excited about commercializing products containing our Bio Natural Oils, which provide substantially different characteristics than other oil-based products on the market today. Our Bio Natural Oils deliver the full-spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes of the strain from which they are made, and thus empower the consumers to enjoy the experience of their preferred strain of choice in an edible form” he added.
