“In 2018, Aleafia Health laid the groundwork for a breakthrough 2019, and we have now begun to see the results of this work.

Concurrently, we have achieved an improved capital markets profile, graduating to the Toronto Stock Exchange, while increasing our cash position despite making major investments in the buildout of our modern production facilities. I would like to thank our entire team, from the leadership of our Board, to clinic staff and physicians, production buildout crews, and management for the outstanding work and commitment shown to our shared cannabis health and wellness vision.”
