Vancouver, B.C. - TheNewswire - October 15th, 2019 - HERITAGE CANNABIS HOLDINGS CORP. (CNSX:CANN.CN) ("Heritage" or "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a strategic supply and contract manufacturing agreement with Sugarbud Craft Growers Corp. (TSXV:SUGR) ("Sugarbud").
Pursuant to the agreement, Sugarbud will supply Heritage with a minimum of 100 kilograms of dried premium cannabis per month for an initial term of two years commencing May 1, 2020 and Heritage will provide extraction, formulation and production services to Sugarbud for the development of pre-filled vape cartridges, utilizing proprietary formulations created by Sugarbud, all subject to licensing and regulatory approvals.
One of Heritage's strategic goals is to become Canada's leader in supplying premium, all natural, vape oil and vape products. Through its subsidiary, Purefarma Solutions Inc., ("Purefarma"), Heritage has a 'direct to vape' process which sees no harmful additives, artificial or otherwise, being blended into the vaping oil. This allows Heritage's customers the ability to see consistency in the strain profile between the cannabis input material and the oil being produced.
"The supply and contract manufacturing agreement with Heritage is a significant milestone for Sugarbud as we continue to execute and expand upon our overall product leadership strategy," stated John Kondrosky, CEO of Sugarbud. "We are pleased to be working alongside Heritage in this exciting growth segment and we are confident the partnership with Heritage will equip us to deliver products with quality, safety and integrity as we prepare to introduce our proprietary premium vape pen formulations to the Canadian cannabis adult-use and medical market," Mr. Kondrosky continued.
"We are pleased to have this agreement with Sugarbud as they embark on their first grow. This allows us to work with them from the beginning to align their grow and strains with what we know provides the best results with our processes." states Clint Sharples, CEO of Heritage "Sugarbud joins the group of Licenced Growers supplying Heritage with high quality cannabis for our extraction needs. As the market evolves, we believe quality will be the differentiating factor for the end user."
