TORONTO and GLIL YAM, Israel, April 9, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — IM Cannabis Corp. (CSE: IMCC) (NASDAQ: IMCC) (the “Company“, “IMCannabis“, or “IMC“), a leading medical cannabis company with operations in Israel and Germany, entered, through its subsidiary, a strategic distribution agreement with Vessel Brand Inc, a subsidiary of Flora Growth Corp.

Israel is one of the world’s largest and longest standing medical cannabis markets and one in which we expect to play a key role,” noted Clifford Starke, Chief Executive Officer. “Anticipation runs high as we embark on realizing our strategic agenda, aiming to secure a significant market presence in Israel together with IMC.”
