AgMedica Bioscience Inc. (“AgMedica” or the “Company”), a licensed producer of medicinal cannabis, is pleased to announce that its facility in Chatham, Ontario has received current Good Manufacturing Practice (“cGMP”) certification.

Internationally-recognized firm SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company with more than 130 years of experience, carried out an independent third-party inspection of the AgMedica processes and facilities against both EU and Health Canada regulations for cGMP requirements.  SGS has certified that the cultivation, processing and sale of cannabis products by AgMedica met the stringent cGMP requirements of both the EU and Canada.


The Company successfully achieved this important certification only one year after Health Canada granted AgMedica its first licence to cultivate cannabis in December of 2017 and it became a licenced producer (“LP”).  To date, no other LP has received EU-GMP or Canadian-GMP certification as quickly as AgMedica following receipt of the original Health Canada licence.

In order for an LP to ship cannabis for medical purposes to EU and other international countries, cGMP certification is required.  Achieving this certification positions AgMedica one step closer to fulfilling its vision of being a global leader of innovation and commercialization of cannabis-derived health and wellness solutions.

Achieving cGMP certification is the Company’s first key milestone of 2019 and represents AgMedica’s commitment to innovation and continuous learning.  With the recent release of draft regulations for edibles, extracts and topicals, AgMedica plans to expand its portfolio to meet the Canadian demand and to undertake new potential strategic partnerships with emerging markets.
