Adastra Labs Holdings Ltd. (CSE:XTRX)(FRANKFURT:D2EP) (“Adastra”) a provider of same-site Health Canada Licensed cannabis processing and analytical testing services, is pleased to provide an update with respect to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its current operations and announce the entry into an agreement to supply cannabis extract and concentrate products.

On March 18, 2020, the British Columbia government declared a provincial state of emergency, and on March 26, 2020, provided guidance concerning essential services during the COVID-19 pandemic.


Certain sectors of the economy including cannabis retail and wholesale operations, along with analytical laboratories, have been deemed essential services and are permitted to operate. Adastra’s wholly owned subsidiaries, Adastra Labs Inc. and Chemia Analytics Inc. (“Chemia”) are part of the Canadian cannabis supply chain and are committed to responsibly continuing operations to serve B2B customers. Where possible, employees are working from home while others are adhering to strict operating procedures, to safeguard the health and safety of staff to ensure operations remain unaffected. To date, there have been no known cases of COVID-19 at Adastra’s office or facility. Further, Chemia has notified Health Canada, at their request, of its initial testing capabilities to be made available to them during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are taking every precaution possible to safeguard our employees, partners and customers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Adastra is diligently adhering to Provincial and Federal guidance to ensure we are implementing all necessary protocols while endeavouring to maintain our schedule for initial equipment commissioning and operational commencement in the coming weeks. Although we are now an essential service provider, we acknowledge this is a sensitive time and will remain committed to our first priority – the health and safety of our employees and community.” – Andy Hale, CEO, Adastra Labs Holdings Ltd.

Adastra also announces that it has entered into an agreement with CannMart Labs Inc. (“CannMart”) a majority owned subsidiary of Namaste Technologies Inc. (“Namaste” or the “Company”) (N) (M5BQ) (NXTTF) to supply cannabis extract and concentrate products.

Under the terms of the agreement, Adastra will supply standard processing services to CannMart Labs for cannabis extract and concentrate products over a period of 12 months expected to begin on May 1, 2020. The agreement provides a consistent and cost competitive supply of cannabis extract and concentrate for Namaste’s family of products available through CannMart.com and Namaste’s network of government cannabis stores.

Adastra was issued a Standard Processing Licence from Health Canada on March 13, 2020. Under the terms of Adastra’s Standard Processing Licence, Adastra will be able to possess and produce cannabis, by means other than cultivating it, and will sell cannabis in accordance with the Cannabis Regulations. The issuance of a Standard Processor Licence will permit Adastra to execute its business plan and produce cannabis extracts and formulated products. Upon the commencement of formal operations, Adastra will be initially capable of processing approximately 10,000 grams of dried cannabis every hour into cannabis extract. Adastra’s process will create high-value cannabis extracts by supercritical CO2 extraction and secondary distillation, which will be easily incorporated into a variety of value-added products such as; edibles, beverages, topicals, tinctures and vape cartridges that will serve the Canadian medical and adult-use cannabis markets.
