GTEC subsidiary receives two cannabis licences

2019-07-29 09:46 ET - News Release

Mr. Norton Singhavon reports

GTEC SUBSIDIARY GRANTED PROCESSING AND MEDICAL SALES LICENCES BY HEALTH CANADA

GTEC Holdings Ltd.'s wholly owned subsidiary, Alberta Craft Cannabis Inc., has received both a standard processing licence and a sale for medical purposes licence from Health Canada. These licenses are in addition to the standard cultivation licence Alberta Craft already possesses.

On July 26, 2019, Alberta Craft received notification from Health Canada that it had been granted licences for the following activities related to sale of cannabis:

  • A licence for sale for medical purposes;
  • A licence for standard processing authorizing the sales of cannabis plants, cannabis plants seeds, fresh cannabis and dried cannabis products.

Alberta Craft now has the ability to sell into provincial recreational supply chains and make direct on-line sales to medical cannabis clients.

These additional licences will permit GTEC's other cultivation subsidiaries, such as Grey Bruce Farms (which was also recently granted its standard cultivation licence), to access recreational and medical supply channels upon initial harvests through bulk business-to-business transfers to Alberta Craft who is now licensed to distribute products into provincial and medical sales channels. The company anticipates that the issuance of these additional licences will have a material positive impact on long-term gross margins.

"We are extremely pleased to have achieved another major milestone for our shareholders and to further evolve the overall growth of the organization," said Norton Singhavon, GTEC founder, chairman and chief executive officer. "We are excited to be in a position to utilize our unique and exotic cannabis cultivars to launch our ultrapremium brand portfolio into the adult-use market."

Alberta Craft (then operating as GrenEx Farms Inc.) acquired its original cultivation licence on Sept. 29, 2017, under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations. Alberta Craft received its updated cultivation licence, under the Cannabis Act, from Health Canada on Nov. 8, 2018, and Alberta Craft has been selling bulk cannabis to other licensed producers since late 2018.
