Kelowna, BC – July 29, 2019 – GTEC Holdings Ltd. (TSXV: GTEC) (OTCQB: GGTTF) (FRA: 1BUP) (“GTEC” or the “Company”), a vertically integrated ultra-premium cannabis producer, is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Alberta Craft Cannabis Inc. (“ACC”), has received both a Standard Processing and a Sale for Medical Purposes licences from Health Canada. These licenses are in addition to the Standard Cultivation licence ACC already possesses.
On July 26, 2019 ACC 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
ACC now has the ability to sell into provincial recreational supply chains and make direct online 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 to recreational and medical supply channels upon initial harvests via bulk B2B transfers to ACC 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 and to further evolve the overall growth of the organization,” said Norton Singhavon, GTEC Founder, Chairman and CEO. “We are excited to be in a position to utilize our unique and exotic cannabis cultivars to launch our ultra-premium brand portfolio into the adult-use market.”
ACC (then operating as GrenEx Farms Inc.) acquired its original Cultivation Licence on September 29, 2017 under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations. ACC received its updated Cultivation Licence, under the Cannabis Act, from Health Canada on November 8, 2018 and ACC has been selling bulk cannabis to other Licensed Producers since late 2018.
