Christina Lake Announces Commencement of Trading on the CSE

GlobeNewswire

Published

on

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Christina Lake Cannabis Corp. (the “Company” or “CLC” or “Christina Lake Cannabis”), a premier producer of high-quality, low-cost, sun-grown cannabis flower, oil cannabinoids, as well as hemp-based extracts and derivatives, serving domestic and international markets, is pleased to announce that its common shares will begin trading on the Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE”) at 9:30 am EDT on Thursday October 1, 2020 under the ticker symbol “CLC”.

In October 2018, CLC began its roadmap to becoming one of the largest firms in the country for outdoor cannabis cultivation and extraction by purchasing a cultivation building and fully-serviced 32-acre site in the Christina Lake region of British Columbia. CLC received approval for a standard cultivation license from Health Canada in early 2019, with a research and development license granted in the beginning of 2020. In summer 2020 the Company began harvesting more than 22,500 plants of eight unique cannabis strains, which is expected to yield a minimum of 22,500 kg/49,500 lb. With over 30 full-time staff members and seasonal workers, CLC is also the largest employer in its region. To date, the Company’s successive investment rounds have raised a total of approximately CAD $16,000,000, which enables CLC to maintain a reserve of funds for ongoing operations.

Nicco Dehaan, a founder of the Company and its Chief Operating Officer commented, “Having been part of CLC from the beginning, I am very proud of the progress made since 2018 for both the Company and the cannabis industry in general. We were very confident in the amount of growth potential this industry had, and we knew Christina Lake would be the perfect region in which to conduct outdoor growing of cannabis. As with any regulated industry, there were many hoops to jump through in order to obtain license approvals and build out a compliant operating structure. Further, applying to have CLC’s equity traded on a public stock exchange introduces a whole other set of requirements to meet and satisfy on an ongoing basis. Between obtaining our licensed producer status from Health Canada, hiring on full-time personnel for several key professional roles, and beginning to harvest our first crop for the 2020 growing season, receiving approval for trading on the CSE is an excellent addition to our momentum as we prepare to bring our first crop to market. We look forward to a productive Q4 2020, with very exciting developments to be had in 2021 and beyond.”

About Christina Lake Cannabis Corp.

Christina Lake Cannabis Corp is a Licensed Producer of cannabis under the Cannabis Act which also received a Research and Development License from Health Canada on May 20, 2020. CLC’s facility is comprised of a 32-acre property, which includes over 950,000 square feet of outdoor grow space, offices, propagation and drying rooms, as well as research facilities, and a facility dedicated to processing and extraction. CLC cultivates cannabis using strains specifically developed for outdoor cultivation and expects to produce 22,500 kg or more from its 32-acre facility before developing its adjacent 99-acre expansion property, which will bring its cultivation footprint to over 4.35 million square feet or over 88,000 kg of low-cost, high-quality, sun-grown cannabis annually.

Medical Marijuana, Inc. Becomes First Company to Reach Two-Year Milestone in High-Level CBD Hemp Oil Stability Study

GlobeNewswire

Published

on

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWireMedical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA) (the “Company”), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States that launched the world’s first-ever cannabis-derived nutraceutical products, brands and supply chain, announced today that the Company has reached a two-year milestone for long-term stability testing on its flagship THC-free cannabidiol (CBD) oil product Real Scientific Hemp Oil-X™ (RSHO-X™). The stability study was conducted in strict compliance with FDA/ICH guidelines (Q1A-R2).

The study was outsourced to one of the most qualified cGLP/cGMP compliant Contract Research Organizations (CROs) with ISO 17025 accreditation and certification.

“As a Company of Firsts, we are excited to announce that we now have the first CBD hemp oil product on the market to have a proven two-year shelf life. This is the gold standard within the industry for shelf life and, just like many of the testing benchmarks and methods that we have developed for the industry, we believe that other CBD companies will begin testing their products for a similar stability standard and together we will further legitimize the CBD industry,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. “We will continue to look for new and innovative ways to prove our products’ safety and efficacy.”

The stability study tested several samples of RSHO-X™ CBD oil, which was also exposed to various environmental conditions and temperatures that may be experienced in various locations throughout the world. The samples, which were tested for appearance, odor, specific gravity, viscosity, package compatibility, and complete microbial characteristics, showcased that the product is stable at the end of a two-year time period and has identical CBD concentrations to what existed at the beginning of the study.

Also, the study was performed using fully validated, proprietary analytical UPLC-PDA and LC-MS/MS methods reflecting the specificity and selectivity toward RSHO-X™, including data elements and parameters such as accuracy, precision, repeatability, ruggedness, system suitability, linearity, specificity, dilution integrity, and dynamic range.

The test results showed no change (no more than 5%) in the CBD content and other specifications that were observed and the container closure system was faultless at both long-term and accelerated test conditions. The product also tested negative for any harmful microbes or toxins and the positive 24-month, long-term stability test results suggest that RSHO-X™ is a stable formulation and example for the industry.
