Harvest One (TSXV: HVT) (“Harvest One” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has made an investment in Burb Cannabis Corp.

The Company’s investment in Burb represents the maximum investment permitted by a Licensed Producer in a retail cannabis business under applicable British Columbia law and regulation (“Applicable Law”).

Under the terms of the agreement, the Company invested $1,750,000 for an approximately 20 per cent equity position in Burb, as well as an option to acquire a future majority stake in Burb, as may be permitted under Applicable Law.

“Moving into brick and mortar is familiar territory for me and an extremely valuable opportunity for Harvest One,” said Grant Froese, CEO of Harvest One. “Harvest One is committed to providing consumers with high-quality, end-to-end cannabis solutions and investing in Burb helps us achieve this goal. The investment in Burb also allows Harvest One to play a pro-active role in educating consumers about recreational cannabis and shape the future of cannabis retail in Canada.”
The name Burb reflects the retailer’s commitment to initially servicing communities outside of busy metropolitan centres. Burb anticipates opening eight stores in British Columbia by early 2019 then acquiring both rural and urban footholds in Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Ontario. In addition, Burb is launching a premium, Made in Canadastreetwear line of basics to usher in a new era for cannabis culture.
“Burb chose to partner with Harvest One because of their high-quality cannabis products and top-rated brand Royal High, as well as their CEO’s extensive retail expertise and network,” says John Kaye, Co-Founder and CEO of Burb Cannabis Corp. “We are excited to provide a unique and sophisticated retail experience, as well as a strong apparel brand, to customers, and have Harvest One as our partner as we expand across Canada.”
